The space

Our apartment is perfect for the budget traveler. It's very clean and with about 500 square feet it is spacious enough for 2 guests, although there is a fold out couch if you need it. My wife and I lived here before buying the main house on the property. It was a great place to live and gave us many happy years. I'm sure you will love it too!

Located near Congress and Riverside, just a few blocks away from longtime Austin establishments such as Guero's Taco Bar, The Continental Club, Allen's Boots, and many other amazing restaurants, shops and music venues. The South Congress bridge, where the bats emerge at sunset every evening from March to October, is just a few more blocks away and leads directly into the downtown area only a mile from our apartment, all within walking distance. You can pick up the hike and bike trail at the bridge as well, and it runs for many miles around Lady Bird Lake. Public bike rentals are within a five minute walk on Congress Avenue.

We do provide off street parking for one car.

Rate includes 15% state and local hotel taxes for stays shorter than 30 days.

Interaction with guests

We may or may not be here when you arrive but we will make sure to leave the door unlocked and the apartment ready for you when you get here.

The neighborhood

Our neighborhood is very quiet but still within a five minute walk to South Congress Avenue where business is booming!

Getting around

There is public transportation within a five minute walk on Congress Avenue.

Other things to note

I have the best wifi range extender that money can buy but I have heard from our guests that it can be a little spotty, especially in the back of the apartment further away from our house. We do apologize in advance for any inconvenience. I am looking into ways to run a physical line from the house to the apartment but this is a fairly major project that will have to take place sometime in 2017.

Great place near downtown Austin. Not too expensive for what you get since it's a nice separate apartment.

Very cute house in the perfect location! Walking distance to South Congress and Downtown. AC worked great and the location was quiet. It was also nice to have cats and chickens roaming about to come greet you every day!

Great Location. Just a short walk to South Congress and all the action there. Check in was very easy. The place is very small - perfect for two - not so if you are travelling with more. If you are a coffee drinker be prepared to have one cup and then head to Joe's on South Congress. The coffee pot is in room hotel size. Other than the size of the coffee pot everything about this place is great. Enjoy your time in Austin!
