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.
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 !!!
The apartment was great, we only stayed one night. Great location, we were able to get to everything. We will stay at the Cross" again. Great value, great host. Thanks again Benjamin.
Laura and Ben were very friendly and made me feel at home. The apt. was cozy and with the blinds open I felt like I was in a tree house, and I loove tree houses! It had everything you need, including a delicious apple cider and good Texas beer in the fridge.
The neighborhood is quiet and located near all the activities I enjoy. Their boys are precious and I enjoyed one warm evening outside playing ball with them.
A spotlessly clean and very comfortable apartment. Exactly as described.
Super communications, and very easy to follow instructions for accessing the apartment, and using the TV and internet.
Would highly recommend.
My wife and I loved our overall stay at Ben's property! We decided to do a last minute, two day "stay-cation", and on just a couple of hours notice he had the place ready to go. Ben was very timely with his responses to our questions and gave us very accurate info on the property and our stay.
This is in a great neighborhood, centrally located to everything you need in Austin. There is a great trail system just down the road that my wife and I spent a couple of hours on. We wouldn't had known about if it weren't for Ben's wife telling us about it. The property is super-clean, comfy, and exactly what we were looking for. We would stay here again!
Just returned from a 5 night stay at this AWESOME Apt., it was just as described and pictures show it exactly as is, traveling alone I felt completly safe, the location is Great, near plenty of shopping/restaurants and close enough to venture to downtown Austin (which has become my favorite city)! I had the pleasure to meet Ben and his boys on my way in one afternoon, great family! The bed was super comfy, the fully applianced kitchen was great to have! Little secret about the TV remote ~ Just use the controls on the side of the TV, much easier lol! The WiFi worked great as well! I HIGHLY recommend staying here!!
The apartment exceeded my expectations. Great location. Clean. Comfortable. Great light through the many windows. The host made me feel very welcome & made sure I had everthing i needed. On a scale of 1 - 10, this listing gets a 10.
