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.

We only had an overnight trip, but we loved it. Everything was so homey and comfortable. The neighborhood is great and less than a 10 min walk to Congress. Can't wait to stay here again!
I rented out John's studio for my mother and sister for a weekend. John had the studio in great shape and clean upon our arrival. Although we never met John, we felt very welcomed by him and the chicken. The home is charming and tucked into one of my favorite Austin neighborhoods, Travis Heights. Its perfect for one or two. Easy to walk or bike to some delicious food and fun.
Absolutely delightful, super clean and cozy cottage. Wish this trip wasn't such a whirlwind as I would have loved to have spent more time enjoying the neighborhood (great location and very close to SoCo and all of the awesome restaurants, live music venues etc.) Will definitely stay there again and again! :)
This studio apartment is great. John was a fantastic host. Lots of shops and restaurants in walking distance. Great place if you are looking to explore Austin. The apartment was cozy, it was just two of us and we had plenty of room. I would recommend this place to anyone. It being my first airbnb experience, if the rest are like this then I will continue to use it.
We absolutely loved staying here! It was clean, and exactly as pictured and described in the listing! We will definitely be coming back to stay here when we come back to Austin! Great host, location and fairly priced!
This stand alone apartment is great for a visit to Austin. It really fits the Austin look and feel and was very convenient for getting to the airport and downtown. John was very responsive and while we never met in person seemed very friendly. I'd definitely stay there again.
