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.

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.

A comfortable and charming space in a great location. Just a quick and pretty walk to one of Austin's main drags. Lovely neighborhood, as well. John was quick to respond and made check-in and check-out a breeze. I would highly recommend

The location is just perfect. Short walk to South Congress in a peaceful neighborhood. I agree with past reviewers, more spacious than expected and a super comfy bed, not ideal for light sleepers as the AC unit is a little noisy when it kicks on and if someone accesses the attached garage you can hear that. Even so, i would totally stay here again for its coziness, how isolated and private it feels and proximity to restaurants and venues.

John's place was just perfect. The neighborhood is beautiful and quite. We went there for ACL and couldn't be anymore happier with the location. It was about a 2 mile walk to Zilker Park and South Congress is right around the corner. The place was bigger than expected. The bed was really comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you, John.
