As Stefan would say, this place has EVERYTHING! This 1/1 duplex apt is oh so close to Mopac (no, really!) & Windsor. It has a mid-cent. modern vibe, int. brick walls, cool furniture, ALL up-to-date, 2 TVs w/ cable, wifi, cool patio, 3 mins to dtown.
This place has one queen bed and a sofa. So, it officially sleeps 2, but a third person could always rough it on the sofa. It has painted interior brick walls, mid-century modern construction, cool furniture, lofted ceilings, and nonstop style--all tucked into a super central location!
Although the layout makes the Suite Sweet feel quite spacious, at 500 square feet it is very efficient. It is heated and cooled through window and portable units.
Wifi, cable TV, stackable W/D, microwave, free onsite parking, dishwasher, disposal, and being within minutes of everything.
Combo deadbolt makes access a breeze! No fumbling around with keys.
Interaction with Guests
The Sweet Central Suite is the "B" side of a duplex. (Deluxe Digs is the "A" side and is also on AirBNB.) I live off site, so we won't be hanging out together.
This property is located on a street that is as close as you can get to Mopac, running parallel with it. This street features smaller homes built in the 1950s, but one street over (in the other direction) is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Austin, featuring beautiful, stately, older homes. Great neighborhood for walking and running. Three minutes (by car) from Clarksville and West Austin restaurants like Jeffrey's, Josephine House, Cippolinas, and Wink, and coffee shops like Cafe Medicci's. Flagship Whole Foods Market is 5 minutes away.

5. Be nice.
The location of the duplex is good. It's in an old upscale neighborhood just a 10 minute drive from downtown. The apartment was very clean and we had some amenities we didn't expect like laundry detergent and bath soap. There were plenty of cookware for making meals and we were able to relax and enjoy our time in Austin. The only small complaint is the duplex is right on the freeway and train tracks. A train rolls through every couple hours throughout the night. After the first couple nights it doesn't bother you anymore. I was actually surprised how dampened the noise was. It could have been much worse. I sure wouldn't hesitate booking this apartment again. It was perfect for my wife, infant daughter and myself.
We have stayed at Sweet Central Suite many times before and it is always neat, clean, quiet and well furnished. Christina is an awesome host.
What a wonderful first experience on AirBnb! Christina was very helpful and always replied to emails within 24 hours. Sweet Central Suite was lovely -- the place was immaculate when we got there. It was the perfect sized place for me and my boyfriend to stay. Very conveniently located, with downtown just minutes away. Yes, you could see Mopac from the front door, however, like everyone else has said, you can barely notice the sounds. Overall, it was a great stay and I would definitely come back.
The place was superb. Phenomenally clean, had everything we needed to be comfortable, and would be suitable for a short or long stay. We were sad to go! Christina was a top-notch host, very sweet and stayed in contact during our visit. We really couldn't have asked for anything better, and didn't need to! We got to enjoy a great weekend in Austin, both in and outside of the duplex. We would stay here again!
Christina is a fantastic, attentive host, and we didn't even meet in person! The apartment was just right for our visit for our friends' weekend wedding, comfortable and well designed, easily heated/cooled and very quiet despite proximity to traffic. Also we walked to Josephine House after finding it on Yelp and had the best brunch of our lives and that's stacked up against years of hipster brunching from Brooklyn, NY to Venice, CA. Nom.
I really enjoyed the duplex a lot. The decor was simple, chic, and inviting. The layout was roomy for the space to only be 500 Ft. The bathroom was my favorite. It had a warmer in it which was perfect for cold and rainy nights. I loved that Christina had small necessities there: soap, blow dryer, stand-up mirror. There is even cable to keep you company, or HDMI TV if you want to bring your Apple TV. The location was perfect. The neighborhood was really quiet and I felt safe. You won't regret staying here!
Very comfortable and incredibly clean. Christina was a great host and so easy to work with. She responded quickly to all questions. Thanks it was a wonderful stay.

I'm a proud native Austinite and an even prouder mother of two. I think it's the combination of those two things that makes me love being an AirBNB host in ATX as much as I do! When I'm not cleaning and prepping Sweet Central Suite for you, dear guest, I enjoy running around Lady Bird Lake, movies at Violet Crown Cinema, and/or eating at El Alma. And I highly recommend any and all of these things to you during your stay!
