About this listing
Stay in Austin just minutes away from downtown and UT. Our detached 600 sq. ft apartment provides plenty of privacy. You'll have the place all to yourselves.
It is fully equipped with queen bed, full kitchen, bathroom, TV, coffee maker and more.
This is a great spot to enjoy all that Austin has to offer. Whether you're coming for a festival like SXSW or looking to see the sights, you'll be close it all. Downtown, 6th St, Zilker Park, Barton Springs, UT, the Capitol, and more are all easy to get to from the apartment.
This apartment was built in 2006, so it a new and very clean place to stay in Austin. The queen bed can easily fit two people. A third could stay on the couch (or an air mattress) if needed.
The full kitchen can save you money on your meals. It contains a fridge, oven, range, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, pots, pans, plates, and silverware. We'll leave you with a little stockpile of waters, coffee, and maybe even some Texas beers.
After a busy day, you'll be able to relax on the couch and watch Netflix or utilize the free wifi. We just have gigabit internet installed, so you'll get to enjoy blazing speeds.
You'll get a code to the keypad lock beforehand, so you'll be able to come and go as you please. There is no need to "check in", just let yourself in and make yourself at home.
Interaction with Guests
You'll have the whole building to yourself, so you won't really see much of us unless you would like. Austin is a great city and we'd love to help you make the most of your visit.
The Ridgelea area is lovely spot that is secluded, yet right in the middle of central Austin. You'll be able to enjoy the peace and quiet of our wonderful neighborhood while still staying in the heart of central Austin.
This is a great spot to visit Austin without a car. There are 3 bus lines within a few blocks that will take you all over Austin, including downtown and UT within 15 minutes. See the Cap Metro website for a schedule.
We're also in the service area for car2go if you need to use a car for a short trip.
There are several restaurants, stores, and grocers within walking distance.
Other Things to Note
Long term (30+ days) guests are welcome. All utilities are included in the monthly rate. This is a great spot for traveling nurses at Seton Hospital or students and teachers going to UT. There is a full kitchen, so you'll be able to cook as needed.
Kids are welcome. We have three young boys and so we can lend a Pack-in-Play if you need one.
We pay all city, state, and federal taxes. We are operating under Austin short term rental licensing number 131260.
Treat the space like you would your own, and we'd love to host you. No smoking or pets please.
Ben and Laura were awesome! It was lovely to arrive and have a beer, thanks guys :)
The location and apt were great!! We had zero issues with getting in and out of the place and would stay here again anytime!!
Ben's apartment was the perfect accommodation for my husband, 17month old daughter, and I. We booked it for Friday and Saturday and were in and out quite a bit. We always had easy access and it was nice to come back to cold bottled water in the fridge, along with other refreshments Ben was kind enough to leave. The apartment had plenty of space for us to cook, dine, and relax in and my daughter enjoyed the large living space. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone coming to the Austin area!
I had a wonderful time staying in Benjamin's beautiful guest home with my girlfriend for a weekend trip to Austin. The space was clean and comfortable and I couldn't have asked for more! Ben was very prompt with helping to iron out the details of my stay.
We had a great time at Benjamin's place. It was very quite, comfortable and location was perfect. We only stayed one night and wished we could have been there longer to really appreciate this space. We highly recommend Benjamin's place!
Great place. Comfortable bed and clean and roomy apartment. We stayed for a couple of nights and it was easy to get around all of Austin. Benjamin is an excellent and attentive host. Would definitely recommend staying here!
The location and apartment were great. It was very close to downtown and all areas of interest. The area itself is also a beautiful neighborhood. The apartment was very spacious and cozy and has most of the amenities you need. It was nice having Netflix and small kitchen area as well. Ben was kind and good at communicating via email.
