Awesome place. About a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride to a bunch of great things. The studio is super comfortable and clean. A nice sound setup too. Very chill neighborhood. Place was fully stocked with water, toiletries, etc. Thank you!
Laura and Mark met me upon checkin. They even contacted me in advance, asking what kinds of things I would need for breakfast etc. They both were very kind and accommodating. It was a quick walk down the street to restaurants and bars, and the bus stop was also very near, for a quick trip into other parts of Austin.
Laura and Mark were very gracious hosts whose simple back yard retreat was everything we wanted for our mini adventure in Austin. Each morning we walked three easy blocks to the nearest B-cycle station and spun around town until we were ready for a late afternoon read/nap under the skylights. We had a really great time and were super happy with the location and the space.
Laura and Mark were fantastic hosts- incredibly helpful, gracious, and easy going. The studio was great (even better than pictured and described), and the neighborhood was quiet, charming, and conveniently located. We would highly recommend this rental- it's a great home base for a trip to Austin!
Laura and Mark were exceptionally friendly and welcoming! They provided us with juice, coffee and breakfast while we were there. We had a wonderful stay. The studio was perfect for the two of us. The location couldn't have been better. It's so close to Barton Springs, Zilker Park and ACL! I would definitely recommend staying here.

About the Host, Laura
My husband and I live in the main house on this property with our outgoing three year old son. We enjoy meeting people, helping them feel welcome, and making sure they enjoy their stay.
I am a photojournalist for the Austin American-Statesman, the local daily newspaper, so I can fill you in on many of the great things about Austin, giving you lists of places to visit, restaurants to try and things to explore during your stay.
I love that we live close to downtown, Zilker Park, the hike and bike trail, Lady Bird Lake, and many great local shops and restaurants. There is always a ton of fun things to do, all within walking or biking distance. My husband and I love to check out live music. If you are heading to ACL or SXSW, you will probably see us down there!
