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. Also, I have an ipod dock in the living room. There is an alarm clock for you to use as well. 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.
We can also arrange scooter rentals for up to four people or local brewery tours for up to eight.
Bicycle rentals are available from Longhorn Bikes located on E. Cesar Chavez St.
There is a strict four person maximum policy. Check in/out times are flexible. 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!
No pets (unless we talk first). I will allow small doggies if they are housebroken and you pay a pet deposit.
Maximum 4 guests allowed per stay.
One night stay may require a $20 cleaning fee. Please speak to me before booking.
Parking is allowed in the lot directly in front of the apartment, but please remember to take all your belongings inside. I cannot be responsible for your vehicle.
If you lose your keys, I ask that you pay $5 per replacement key.
Wifi password will be given at check in time.
Very nice and charming apartment in a great and authentic neighborhood and only a short walk away from convention center. Alexandria was a perfect host, helpful and supportive, we intend to return next year for sxsw.
The host was great and communicated all necessary details clearly. Neighborhood was very hip and fun with lots of good bars in the area. The apartment itself was great.
This charming apartment was exactly as described and included all of the comforts of home. Though, the shower is only a single standup stall, which can be cramped but it's only a minor flaw.
If you are unfamiliar with Austin, you will love the fantastic location in an up and coming area of East Austin. There are many excellent food trucks, restaurants, bars, and a coffee house within a 2 block radius. This neighborhood offers a welcome respite from downtown, while still remaining within relative walking distance (or a short uber) of downtown bars if that's your scene.
It was a nice charming place. Great location, great books.
Host is an awesome nerd with great sci fi taste
We had a wonderful weekend at the Charming Cottage. Alexandria was an excellent host and was available to answers any questions we had. The location is absolutely perfect and walking distance to many restaurants, shopping and live music. I would highly recommend staying here and look forward to visiting again.
Alexandria's place on E 6th is a great location. Good bar beneath you that doesn't make any audible noise from the apartment that I heard. The host was really helpful with her communications, and let us know as soon as it was ready. Great fun!
I stayed at at the apartment for one week at the end of February 2015. It is conveniently located at the East End of 6th Street close enough to the centre and to a great trailer restaurant area and other restaurants. Alexandria was very accomodating and made the check-in and check-out process easy. The apartment is indeed charming with a rustic edge to it. The area is noisy and ear plugs for the night are a must. Sadly during the time I stayed the weather turned to freezing for several days and although the apartment is facilitated with heaters I had trouble keeping it warm as it is rather drafty. I would recomment the aparmtnemnt to others but would not stay there again during the winter.
