We are in an amazing location a stone throw’s away from Zilker Park. We of course go to ACL every year and can say with authority that it is a 15 minute walk from our door to the front of most of the stages, including security.
2 miles from downtown (about 40 minutes by foot and 20 minutes by bus). We are also a few minutes' walk from several bus lines and 20 minutes' drive from Austin Bergstrom International Airport. There is a bike rental company on Barton Springs Rd, and a B-Cycle docking station if you want to rent bicycles while you are here.
Kate was a lovely host in a wonderful apartment within walking distance (or $10 taxi at night) of downtown. We very much enjoyed Austin and recommend Kate to everyone. It was a shame we were only staying for a short period of time!
Kate was an amazing host and we couldn't have wanted more! From the kind bars (gluten free) to fresh-ground local light-roast coffee, to the cream and OJ in the mini fridge, she made every little detail count. Oh, and that water pressure? Amazed.
Kate was very nice, space was very private, clean, and right next to Zilker Park. Could not have been an easier stay!
Kate was an awesome host and a fantastic ambassador of Austin! She was very kind, communicative, and helpful. The room was clean, well kept, and everything was as described (plus awesomely good water pressure). She even brought down some gluten free beer for me. I would come back and stay in a heartbeat!
What a nice and convenient place to crash! Kate and her husband were accommodating and respectful hosts, and provided a bed-and-breakfast-like experience for me. If you're open to walking or biking to downtown, this room is a great option.
Kate was great, it was a last minute request but she had everything set up. It is a great place with lots of charm and very close to Zilker park and everything else. A great neighborhood! Highly recommend!
I grew up in Austin, and work for UT. My husband is an urban designer and we like our house because it is walking distance to downtown, Zilker park and local bus routes. And because of the spiral staircase. We go to a lot of live music, and enjoy the quirkier side of the Austin culture scene... which is most of the scene, really. Come join us, we have plenty of room and it will be fun!
