The Space

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.

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.

  • The Cozy Allendale Apartment was in fact cozy and in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The host and her family were very accommodating. The property is conveniently located in Austin. We would gladly stay there again. We loved Austin, what a great foodie town and the music was fun.

  • Sara was a great host. Her place was clean and included a welcome binder with information on places to check out in Austin. She was also very easy to communicate with via email and phone. If you have transportation (quick drive to most places, but not walking distance), I would definitely recommend that you stay with Sara if you're coming to Austin.

  • Sara and Fredrik were great hosts. They were not intrusive, said hello to me once as I was leaving the apartment early Saturday morning. They were very responsive on email contact. I enjoyed staying in this quiet, older part of town to get a real feel for Austin. It was minutes from either Downtown (south) or UT (north) where my meetings were. The garage apt is very quaint and has everything you would need for your stay including a small but fully stocked kitchen should you want to cook or store groceries. The BEST part for me was it is totally separate from their house so I didn't have to worry about making noise staying up late to watch a movie, and I didn't hear anyone else's noise :-)

  • Such a comfy hide-away! Minutes away from any/every where! Sara and Fredrik were great! We were on the go much of the time, and the apartment was a great place to come "home". Fell in love with Austin in the spring! We're hoping to make Austin a regular destination, and Sara and Fredrik's place our go-to home away from home!

  • Absolutely loved the apartment. I was just enough space for my friend and I and our 2 boys. It was also a very nice and quiet neighborhood. The cats were a nice bonus for my son. He loved petting them. I would recommend Sara's place to anyone looking for a nice, quiet, and cozy place in Austin.

  • This was a perfect place to stay during our visit to Austin, located in a lovely neighborhood.

    Sara was a great host and had some on point recommendations for tasty food that Austin has to offer.

    Exceeded my expectations and would love to return!
