About This Listing
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.

This spot was perfect for my trip to Austin for my best friend's (email hidden). Cecilia Hotel . It was just around the corner and within a 5 minute walk to all the shops and restaurants on South Congress. The private apartment was not only charming, but John went above and beyond to provide thoughtful amenities like water bottles & many toiletries. He was also very accommodating with my arrival and departure times. Would love to come back!
Listing description was accurate. Excellent location in beautiful neighborhood.
A great little space, ideally situated for exploring Austin - everything we wanted to see seemed to be less than $10 away with Uber. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating, we had all the amenities we needed. Having the radio on when we arrived was a really nice touch!
John was very communicative and very polite. The apartment fit our needs well, and was very close to plenty of stuff to do in Austin. It was clean and comfortable.
The only downside was the internet connection. It was barely usable most of the time. John mentioned this when we checked in, and told as that the signal comes from the main house and is best at the front of the apartment, but that didn't seem to make a difference.
If that is improved on, I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
John's place is perfect for a trip to Austin. Three blocks from S. Congress with places like the Continental Club and Guero's. About a mile and a half from E. 6th. for many music choices. We walked everywhere, but Uber into the City runs less than $10 and the drivers were great. Bike share stations are also very close. Plan to keep your car parked. Austin traffic rivals anywhere in the country.....really the only negative. Check out S. 1st also. The place is really starting to happen.
The room itself is a one bedroom garage apartment with an extra sofa bed. Nice touches like organic coffee, half and half and water can be found in the fridge. Wi-Fi, although weak is available. All in all this place rocks! Thanks John....we shall return!
