The space

This is a warm and inviting apartment in the best East Austin location. Surrounded by trendy bars and restaurants, and a short 5 minute walk to downtown. This apartment is right in the action!

*Please note before booking that this apartment is in a quirky semi-updated turn of the century building*. It's a bit rough around the edges, but if you love a funky, bohemian, cleverly decorated and cozy space then this apartment is for you.

The entire apartment is all yours! You will have absolute privacy at all times, but I live a few blocks away in case you need me for anything.

Close to everything you'll need. Coffee, restaurants, nightlife, etc.

Wifi is included, so bring your laptop. It also includes all the kitchen basics - coffee pot, french press, kettle, microwave, toaster, stove and oven. Linens are included and extras are also provided. Housekeeping is optional (for a fee).

The apartment has two bedrooms, one with a bold color palate and plush full size bed. The other bedroom has a muted color palate and a firmer full size bed. The living room now also has a twin sized daybed.

The shelves are loaded with books and games in case you want to have a night in, and there's a cozy electric fireplace.

I've stocked the place with coffee and tea and cream. The most awesome Whole Foods in the nation is located on W. 6th St. a nice stroll through downtown away.

I prefer a two night minimum stay, but if you only want to stay for one night - message me and we can work something out.
I also have weekly rates available.

The city's Bike Rental kiosk is just outside the apartment, so it makes getting around town a breeze.

There is a strict four person maxCheck in/out times are flexible. imum policy. Please message me with arrival and departure times after booking.

Feel free to ask me about great local attractions, bars and restaurants.I love sharing local insider tips about my city. You're going to have a fabulous time in Austin!

SXSW info: You're surrounded by the best that SXSW has to offer. Just a couple of blocks to the Fader Fort and three blocks from downtown. Stay here and you won't have to deal with taxis or buses. Just walk out your front door and you're right in the action!

This place was perfect. Cozy little spot right on 6th straight. Close to many bars and restaurants! Highly recommend this location and I will definitely get it again if possible.

This apartment was cute (as pictured) and comfortable. It's located in a great location in East Austin with plenty of restaurants and nightlife options within walking distance, as well as a short ride to other areas of the city. My complaints would be that the wifi did not actually work, there was rotten food in the mini-fridge, some of the towels had an odor, and we spotted a couple of roaches inside. Overall, it was a decent, budget-friendly apt in an excellent location.

Alexandria was great with her directions and communication. Great value for the place. Close drive or even walk to many bars, restaurants, etc. Would happily stay there again!

Great location on historic 6th street, but on the more restaurant-friendly East side. Great access to down town or the river.

First of all, Alexandria was very nice and easy to talk to, but this Air BnB is not as described in the listing. We saw a roach the first morning we were there. Alexandria was very nice about it and called a pest control person to come and spray that day. However, on our last day at the place, we saw two more roaches. We also had trouble getting into the place because the door was stuck, but once we were able to contact Alexandria, she came and helped us get into the place and we didn't have anymore problems with the door. The listing is also on a very busy street so any cars or people going by can be heard clearly through the windows at night. If you have trouble sleeping through a lot of noise, you should keep that in mind before booking. The beds were clean and comfortable enough, but the rest of the place does not feel very clean. The floors feel dirty and the shower is very small with a drain cover that is not attached to the floor of the shower and a shower head that is not firmly attached to the wall. We also requested more washcloths because we only received 1 for a five night stay with 2 people and they were promised but never delivered. We encountered many problems, but the biggest ones were dealing with roaches, and the cleanliness of the place. I just expected a lot more from a place that costs over $100 per night. Alexandria did refund us a little bit of our money for our trouble, which I do appreciate, but there are many issues with this place that the pictures do not show you.
