The Space

Welcome to our home! This a two bedroom lofted condo with one bathroom and extra vanity area. Our unit is on the top floor with a unique spiral staircase and views of the Frost Tower. There is a couch in the living area that can be used for the additional guests you may have with you as well as an inflatable mattress.

Our home is located two blocks from the Austin Convention Center and is also two blocks from the 6th Street entertainment district. Within a four block radius, there are over 30 restaurants and bars. The Airport Flyer stops one block away and allows for easy transit from and to the airport for $1. The new light rail also stops down the block and there are 20 bus routes within walking distance.

The Town Lake Hike and Bike trail is three blocks away and is a great way to spend a sunny day. Grab a drink at Halcyon Tea & Coffee Lounge or a breakfast taco from Taco Shack, all within a 5 minute walk.

We've had guests stay with us and they only have the best things to say about our beautifully decorated home and divine location. My wife and I lived here for over five years and absolutely love everything the neighborhood has to offer. Come for a stay!

  • Erik & Crystal were great. Super responsive before, during & after the rental. The loft was fantastic and centrally located. A couple of our favorite things about it:

    1) Location
    2) Plenty of linens & such.
    3) Lots of basics. I.e. when you rent an apartment you don't want to have to buy a whole thing of cooking spray or salt. They had lots of the basics that you would need to cook ((website hidden) spray, coffee, coffee filters, tea bags, sweeteners, salt & pepper and some other spices, etc etc). They also had a whole bunch of the hotel shampoos/conditioners/soaps etc (check the drawers in the bathroom).
    4) Air conditioning worked well.
    5) Ironing board, iron, hangers..etc. We were there for a wedding weekend…so all of these appliances made looking good possible :)
    6) Flexible on check and check out time which was awesome since we had a late flight out. Also, we ended up coming a day early and since there was no one staying there, we were able to extend our stay!

    Overall, would definitely stay there again if I returned to Austin!

  • We three loved the clean, comfortable loft of Erik and Crystal. How nice it was to have a bottle of wine left by our hosts for us. Location is perfect for exploring downtown Austin, easy walk to Ladybird Lake, capitol, dining, music. Loved having coffee provided too. The bus from the airport to the loft, $1.50! Took bus out to the Broken Spoke for a super fun night of dancing the 2 step, dresses & cowboy boots YEE HA! Thanks for your prompt and clear communication with us when we had a question. A great place to stay.

  • I have nothing but good things to say about our stay at Erik and Crystal's loft. The location was ideal for a girls weekend of exploring the city and the accommodations were wonderful. We had a group of 5 and fit comfortably into the space. The loft was clean, comfortable, and exactly what we were looking for. Erik was extremely responsive to email (within minutes) and provided us a nicely organized sheet of information for check-in/ out, parking, restaurant recommendations, ect. I would highly recommend this loft for your stay in Austin!

  • The 4th Street Loft was a great place to stay. It is really central and accessible to everything, especially the Convention Center, which is why we chose it (four of us stayed there). You could hear some noise at night, but you're pretty protected from it inside and it didn't wake us up. The keyless entry and exit is a real plus, especially if you have several people staying there. It avoids all that fuss about who has the key, etc. The place is great--clean, attractive, and with a workable layout for several guests. The master bedroom is spacious and has a desk for working and the couch folds out to accommodate up to two people. There's a table in the living room that's great for both eating and working. The loft has a huge bed and great space, though it can get a bit hot up there. There is just one bathroom, if that matters to you, but we didn't find that inconvenient. The only downside was a somewhat iffy internet connection for the building, but with smart devices we mostly circumvented that. I recommend this place!

    As for the hosts, they are just terrific: they send out a wonderful "packet" of information for the rental, complete with restaurants, coffee houses, and places to go (I tried several of their suggestions, happily). They are also really easy and nice to deal with.

  • If your looking for a great apartment in a great location, this is the place. Apartment was perfect for us, it had everything we required. Easy check in, easy to get to and from the airport. Apartment was clean, with all the amenities to make the perfect home from home. Erik and Crystal even left us some beers and food, for our arrival. From the initial contact with the Erik and Crystal , to our departure, everything was spot on. 10 out of 10.

  • This is a comfortable, nicely decorated loft in a prime downtown location, walkable to many of Austin's great restaurants, music venues, and nightlife destinations. We had a great time. Erik and Crystal were very accessible hosts and made the check-in/check-out process super easy. I endorse and recommend this beautiful spot.

  • The 4th St. Loft in Downtown Austin was the perfect vacation spot for our family. The loft was located right in the heart of the city. Erik and Crystal were the perfect hosts, they even left a bottle of wine for us to enjoy. We will definitely stay at the loft again next time we are in Austin!
