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.

Our host, John, was just great. He was on the property and available for assistance when needed but totally in the background. My friend and I were comfortable in the apartment and we absolutely loved the location and neighborhood. Close to South Congress and downtown.
Everything was as described and a very convenient drive to the main drag of the South Congress neighborhood, even walkable. After an emergency altered our itinerary, the hosts were helpful enough to clean up the space on short notice so we could check in well ahead of our scheduled arrival time.
Great place that was last minute for us. Wasn't too small feeling, much larger inside than I expected from the pics. The bed was so comfortable. Nice set up overall. The chickens didn't make any noise!
Gracious hosts that made us feel at home. Easy to come and go to enjoy Austin. Easy walk almost anywhere- South Congress, 6th Street and many sites.
The apartment was very comfortable and spacious, located in a fantastic area close to SOCO street. Had a great time, hope we have the opportunity to visit this beautiful city again. Would definitely stay here again.
Great little guest house in an awesome location. The space was clean and had everything that was needed. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Austin!
Had a great stay at John's place. It was cold in Austin but he had the heater on high and it was nice and toasty when I arrived. The place has a great charm about it and I had an enjoyable evening.
