Walking distance to downtown, South Congress food and shops.
A great location walking distance to downtown Austin, Auditorium Shores, the lake, as well as the restaurants, shops, and food trucks at South Congress.
The space is a private bathroom and bedroom in a 2/2 shared apartment. The roommate is a super chill guy and is usually at work.
We have 1 full sized bed, and 2 comfortable full sized futons.
Each guest will be provided with freshly changed blankets/sheets/pillows, and towel
Whether for leisure or for commuting around the city riding is the best way to get around in Austin. I highly recommend taking a ride along Town Lake or the many trails that Austin has to offer.
Interaction with Guests
I travel a lot, but would love to meet up if you want. My roommate works a lot and will be in and out. He loves guests as well.
South Congress is excellently located walking distance in between the shops and deliciousness at South Congress and downtown Austin/convention center.
-Guest parking available.
-Buses 1 and 486 stop right outside the apt
-My favorite way to get around Austin is by bike.
-Also, walking! South Congress, Lady Bird Lake, Auditorium Shores, Downtown Austin, are all within a mile of this awesome location!
Other Things to Note
The roommate is a cool and friendly guy.
We like to keep the space tidy. Please clean up after yourself in the kitchen :)
The apartment is located in a really cool neighborhood (South Congress) with many nice shops, cafés, and bars. Moreover, public transportation is really good, but you can also easily walk downtown within 20 minutes or so.
In spite of positive email contact before our arrival, we were a bit disappointed about some aspects in the apartment itself. Xing was not in Austin during our stay. My friend and I stayed with his roommate who did not appear to be very approachable; the bathtub was gross, our towels stank. One day we had no electricity and WiFi; after telling Xing's roommate about it he replied that he has taken care of the problems, which was good.
Though our individual perception is slightly downgraded by the aspects just mentioned, the location of the apartment itself is a perfect spot to start your exploration of Austin :-).
Enjoyed a great conversation with Barnett the first night. The place has a wonderful location half a block from the Continental Club. I would recommend it for longer-term stays because it's a little complicated to get into at first. The space is very minimalist and the temperature is quite cool. The weather was unseasonably cold when we were there. It was pretty casual and the bedroom and bathroom needed a good clean. We were given an out of date car gate code but luckily we got the new code in time so it was not inconvenient. Note, there is no elevator so unless you have a car, you'll be carrying your bags up a few flights of stairs. I would stay here again!
Great Location!! Having never been to Austin, I found myself within walking distance of the all the great areas in the city. Nice and clean apartment!
This was an extremely convenient location, close to everything we wanted to do and just steps from delicious food. It was a nice apartment with a great view of downtown and it made our experience fantastic.
The room was as advertised, not super clean but definitely OK for me. The directions were accurate and I had everything I needed. The apartment is in a great neighbourhood with bars, restaurants and cafes. Enjoyed my stay!
Super easy process to stay here. Xing answered my request almost immediately. The location is perfect, next to everything on South Congress. Parking is safe, easy and convenient. The room was clean, the bed very comfortable. I also enjoyed spending some time with Xing's roommate, Barnett. I would definitely stay here again.
