Stay in Austin just minutes away from downtown and UT. Our detached 600 sq. ft apartment provides plenty of privacy and comfort with a queen bed, full kitchen, and bath.

The Space

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.

Guest Access

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 Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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. 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Ben was a great host, he communicated very well and made sure everything was setup for us and was very accommodating. The apartment is a nice clean space above the garage in a quiet neighborhood in the North of Austin. I would definitely look to stay here again for future.

  • We had a great stay, and Benjamin and Laura were great hosts. Very responsive during booking and also during our stay with things we needed and advice on getting around. Quiet neighborhood, and convenient to get downtown. We would recommend staying here.

  • Best place to stay in Austin! Quiet, comfortable, centrally located and easy access.

  • Full disclosure: I didn't stay in Benjamin's place personally but booked it for a friend coming into town. Benjamin was very fast in all his communications with me and helpful. My friend was very comfortable and enjoyed her stay.

  • The studio apartment was clean and beautiful! My boyfriend was hesitant and questioning why we didn't just get a hotel, but after walking up and meeting Ben and his family, and then walking into our little place he quickly changed his mind. There was coffee stocked for us in the morning and an array of bath products to use in the bathroom. On the bookcase was a list of places to visit or eat around the neighborhood, being from Austin we didn't have a use for it, but we went through the list nonetheless saying out loud "yes, that's a great place! Oh yeah Taco Deli should be the first one listed! Or we should go to the Springs while we are visiting!" We spent our night on the couch watching Netflix and unwinding. It was perfect!!!!

    Since I go to Austin a lot for school and to visit I will definitely be renting this place again!

  • Had a great time staying in Benjamin's apartment. It was clean and spacious for two people. The location was perfect for our needs and in a very nice neighborhood. Would stay there again.

    February 2014
  • Ben's studio apartment exceeded my expectations -- I got there a little early and his wife was more than happy to show me the place. It was incredibly clean and I felt very comfortable during my stay. I would definitely recommend Ben's place to anyone visiting Austin looking for convenience and comfort.

    February 2014
  • This was a great little apartment. We stayed there for a month and had an excellent stay. It is set up very well and has everything you need. It is in a nice quiet little neighborhood near grocery stores and bus lines. Ben was very helpful and helped us with everything we asked for.

    February 2014
  • Rented Ben's place for my parents for two stays over the holidays. Please see my first review for details. It worked out great for us, and I believe it would be a great option for just about anyone visiting Austin.
