About this listing
The Cozy Allendale Apartment Hideaway is a 1 bedroom apartment over our detached garage in North Central Austin.
Our lovely one bedroom apartment is situated in the trees over our detached garage. It is a peaceful retreat with one bedroom, a private bath room with shower and full kitchen. The bedroom has a very comfy queen sized bed with fresh cotton sheets. The main room has a dinning table and sitting area. The couch in the sitting area can be another place to sleep and pulls out into a sofa bed that is great for kids. We can comfortably accommodate up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 kids.
The apartment has a flat screen television and stereo. There is high speed wireless internet available to guests.
The kitchen is equipped with a full size fridge/freezer and ice maker. There is a new stove top and oven, as well as microwave and coffee maker for your convenience. The dining table can seat up to six.
We are in North Central Austin (Allendale neighborhood), a 15-20 minute drive to downtown. We are in the Car 2 Go radius and just a few blocks from a Capital Metro bus stop. We do not have private parking for apartment guests, but there is plenty of free parking on the street in front of our house.
Our quiet tree lined street is part of an established neighborhood with lots of Austin charm and many interesting restaurants and shops on Anderson Lane and Burnett Road.
We often have family visiting between November and April. Because of this I will leave this time of the year blocked out on our calendar until I know their travel plans. Once we know exactly when they are coming I can open more dates up.
Interaction with Guests
We are happy to give dirrections or advice about activities and restaraunts. We are a busy family and often on the go, so we do not spend a lot of time hanging out with our guests.
I love our neighborhood for the big beautiful trees. We are an easy drive to downtown and many great restartaunts, but still quiet and tucked away from the noise and comotion of busier parts of town.
We have had guests use the bus and there is a stop near our house. It is easier to stay here with a car.
Other Things to Note
Our apartment does not share any walls with our house so it is very private and pretty well sound insulated. It has it's own heater and air conditioner with programable thermostat.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING
Please park on the street in front of our house.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING
We are in a quiet residential area so it is not a great place for large crowds and lots of noise, especially late at night.
Because this is our home, we really like to know who is staying there. We ask that you not bring home overnight guests without discussing it with us before hand.
Sara Schaubert made me feel at home before I even met her. The neighborhood was nice and adjacent to the home I traveled to Austin to do business with its owner. The only problem I had was that the Airbnb website needs a major overhaul by someone who knows how to set up a website. What should taken 5 minutes to accomplish too over an hour, spread out over two days, because the website kept tying up. The owner should not have been required to pay Airbnb for services, since Sara's neighbor recommended her bnb, gave me the link to rent it and he only thing Airbnb did was take a percentage of what I paid Sara for the apartment without providing any service of any type.
We had a lovely stay at Sara & Frédéric's cozy Allendale apartment... it was well furnished, comfortable and ideally located. Both Sara & Frédéric were warm and welcoming and it was a pleasure meeting them. We had a very comfortable four week stay and wouldn't hesitate staying there again!
Sara was great! She answered all our questions promptly and gave us great food recommendations! The space is quiet and perfect for two people. Great kitchen and privacy. Highly recommended!
Beautiful neighborhood and a great place to stay for our weekend in Austin! Just perfect for us! And the lightening bugs! So fun! Thanks for having us Sara and Fredrik!
Een werkelijk fantastisch appartement in een rustige en mooie buurt buiten het centrum van Austin. Makkelijk bereikbaar, zeer schoon, leuk ingericht met alle comfort.
Zeer aan te raden!
I really enjoyed the cozy garage apartment. It was quiet and in a great location to explore Austin! Sara was a great host and quick to respond to any questions we had during our stay. The neighborhood pool was an awesome afternoon getaway since the natural springs were all flooded :(
The neighborhood is perfectly located for easy access to everything you need. I love the trees on the street too. This was our second stay at this property and I am already looking forward to our next visit.
