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
  • This is a great apartment. Beautifully set out and spacious. Ben sets up so you feel really at home. It's a great base to explore Austin. I'd suggest you have a car and there is ample parking. I'd happily recommend the apartment to anyone.

  • We had a great time in Ben's apartment. It is all very clean and new, well outfitted and supplied. The location is also great, in easy reach of lots of great restaurants, close to the expressway, yet quiet. The combination lock door is especially convenient, since there is no key to pass back and forth. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Austin.

  • This is a beautiful, well-kept apartment on a great street. We had a busy schedule while we were in the city and this place was right in the middle of everywhere we wanted to go. The host was very helpful and responsive to our needs. We highly recommend the property.

  • House was awesome. Great location. Saw Ben and his family a couple of times. They were very nice and provided good information for our stay. Even provided a small care package for our arrival. Everything was perfect for us. Definitely recommend.

  • Located in a quiet neighborhood, this super cute and cozy apartment is surely a hidden gem. It is very clean (so much so that I forgot to do my crazy inspection of every nook and cranny) and very comfortable. We were only there for one night so we didn't have an opportunity to utilize the kitchen but it had everything you would need to make a nice home cooked meal. Communication with Ben was effortless and he provided us with all the information that we needed prior to arrival which made check-in and check-out a breeze. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone.

  • This was my first time with Airbnb and Thank God it was a great experience. Ben was a great host! We had a great time and everything was super close! It was quiet and cozy just what we needed! I loved the chicken in the backyard too. It was even quiet! I would come back again anytime.

  • The apartment was exactly what we needed for our stay in Austin, better than the photos if anything. Neighborhood is conveniently located, I was able to go for a run on the Shoals Creek trail one morning, and easy drive to anywhere we wanted to go. Benjamin was a snap to work with and I would wholeheartedly recommend the apartment.

  • Benjamin provided great communication from the get-go until check-out, often checking to see if we needed anything. The apartment at Idlewild is situated above the detached garage and very private. Motion sensor lighting in the yard makes for easy evening navigation to the room. The room is surrounded by mature trees providing nice shade and natural lighting. The apartment design includes a wide and sturdy staircase to the room, an open concept with a kitchen dining nook, compact yet full kitchen, tile bath, carpeting, 4 windows, flatscreen TV, internet access, hi-tech easy-to-use digital thermostat and a convenient no-key touchpad deadbolt that reprograms after each checkout. Great location in a safe, cozy neighborhood. Great place!
