Modern & colorful apt with a full kitchen & a guest-only deck w scenic view

Super location!
Calm. Private.

Doors between rooms.
(Not an open concept studio)

You're the only guests staying on the property. Contactless chk in/out. Rsrv'd off street parking. 7 safe blocks to Main St & downtown.

Wide country landscape view: sheep & cattle grazing from the secluded tile patio: sip wine, star gaze or enjoy coffee. Serene. Beautiful.

Romantic & private.

We welcome guests from all backgrounds.

The space
This well outfitted garage apartment provides a calm Hill Country oasis. It was recently refreshed w new colors, paint & furnishings. It's 15+ min walking distance (or a 5 minute $8+ Uber/Lyft ride) to historic downtown shopping, food locales, & beer or wine tasting on Main St.

The lodging is in the heart of a quiet residential “vintage” neighborhood 7 relaxed blocks from Main St. & last house on the east side of the street so you get the view of the hundred acres of Hill Country in the distance.

The hosts are as concerned as you are about keeping the space clean & sanitized. (They have 14 years experience in guest hosting.)

*Cleaning Note*

Professionally cleaned and sanitized after each reservation.

2 days either side of guests' stays are blocked out STILL to ensure everyone's health - so you will have the security of knowing all surfaces, inside 'air' and all linens are thoroughly clean.

Once you check in....

You will gravitate to artisan tiled patio *for guests' use only* overlooking our corner of the hill country landscape. Good news: The view is enjoyed from inside the apt AND from the private deck. It is too hot OR cold some days & it DOES rain upon occasion, so you can still enjoy the serene view from the inside.

Only TWO: This is a couple/two person rental, and **you are the only guests** hosted on the property. The owners who live in the house below do NOT have access to the private deck - only guests. There's a private steel staircase that leads from the reserved driveway parking space directly to the apartment deck, guest door & modern, well laid out living quarters.

You may feel like you are Fredericksburg residents... it's friendly, quiet, clean & established in our little corner of small town Texas. You are convenient to all the grocery (nice HEB & Walmart), dining (take out is still BIG here), wine tasting and shopping happenings in town & on the Wine Trail. You are also away from nighttime music or traffic noise that hovers around Main Street after dark.

YOU will have quiet and dark skies just blocks away from the downtown bustle.

You can buy or bring all your own 'supplies' for the weekend and camp in the apt and never even drive while here, if you so wanted to. The apt is a self-contained oasis with outside country air, views and privacy. Ceiling fans plus good AC & heater!

You can be in town shopping during the day; come home to take a nap; head back out for the evening to stroll & have a cocktail or dine -- then return to see the stars. Or any version you choose to create for yourself...

Where you’ll be

Fredericksburg, Texas, United States

Photo worthy scenes of Angus cattle grazing across the fence; the sound of the wind and birds from the private upstairs deck; and deer in the distance provide a true escape from the home office grind or city bustle. The bonus is that this experience is a mere 7 blocks from the famous Main Street of Fredericksburg. And a short 10 minute drive from the "290 Wine Road" with over 50 wineries, breweries & distilleries. Book this quiet gem & private modern escape. Yes, even with onsite hosts who you likely won't ever see. Plus, the stairs that access the vacation rental apartment are USED ONLY by guests. No one else has use or access to them from your off-street, reserved parking space IN the hosts driveway.
