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.
Great spot! Convenient to downtown, even during SXSW. Nice place, comfortable bed, left water, beer and coffee for me. Would definitely recommend to friends.
Ben wad the best of hosts! The apartment is very well appointed, close to everything you could possibly need in Austin, and a wonderful place to stay. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Benjamin was a great host, he communicated well and was very attentive to our needs. We had a wonderful stay at the apartment and I would definitely recommend to stay here.
Ben's apartment was the perfect lodging for a quick trip to Austin. I arrived to an immaculately clean garage apartment, with all the amenities I hope for when staying at an AirBNB. The wifi was insanely fast, and there was free beer in the fridge! I had a wonderful night's sleep, and Ben was very accommodating in allowing me to check out a little bit later than the listed time.
I look forward to staying there again and would absolutely recommend this host to family & friends!
We had a great time staying here. Benjamin was always easy to communicate with, the place was clean and cozy, the location was close to highway and only 10 minutes from downtown & it worked out great for us. Overall, we had a good stay and I recommend this place.
Stayed for two months starting Jan of this year. Great apartment with everything I needed. Owners live in the house next to the garage apartment and were great hosts. Would stay again.
I stayed at Ben's place for the entire month of Dec. and I wish I could have extended my stay, but they were already booked. My stay was awesome, it was relaxing, comfortable, quiet and I always felt safe. As new traveling nurse from Ohio, this was my first attempt at AirBNB and it was wonderful. I highly recommend Ben's place to anyone who needs to work/enjoy all that this area has to offer. I rarely saw the family, but when I did, I enjoyed our chats. Thanks again for hosting me at your home and making me feel welcome. Hope to stay there again before I leave Austin !!!
