Interaction with Guests
Interaction is up to the guests. Knock on our door, text or call us anytime you need but we like to give our guests complete privacy and usually hardly see our guests that stay with us as the studio is completely private.
We love our unique and mixed neighborhood on our no outlet street. Been living here for almost a decade and are friends with the neighbors on our street.
Love that it's bike-able to downtown but away from all the traffic and craziness of the city.
2 Line from Oak Springs Drive & Springdale (approx. 1/2 mile walk from the house to the bus stop) Runs every 30 minutes
17 Line from Lyons & Springdale (approx. .75 mile walk from house) Runs every 15 minutes
Lots of Cars to Go parked in our neighborhood also. Uber and Lyft have been good experiences for some of our more recent guests.
Other Things to Note
We're conveniently located near lots of new east Austin bars and eateries:
The Eastside Showroom
Mueller Trailer Park
Libery Bar with East Side Kings trailer
...just a few of our favorites.
We're also 3 miles from Mueller, where there is a large park and walking trail as well as The Thinkery; a science museum for children. We are members so if our schedules align, we'd be glad to get you in!
One last thing! Due to our young children, allergies and previous bad experiences (boo!) we have to emphasize that ours is a non-smoking and pet-free home. Smoking area provided outside on patio. No pets. Security deposit will not be returned if either of those house rules are broken. Sorry!
This place was perfect for our family vacation getaway with small kids. The size of the apartment is perfect for a family - with a separate bedroom for the adults, and large fold-out couch for the kids. The toys and the playground in the back was perfect for us, allowing us to get ready for the day in the mornings while the kids played. The location was great - close to great eateries, easy access to the airport and highways for all the Austin and nearby attractions. Rachel was very response and helpful with neighborhood suggestions and making sure we are comfortable in the apartment. I highly recommend staying here!
The apartment was easy to find, had a designated parking spot for us, we were able to come and go as we pleased, it was clean and attractive, and Rachel was absolutely wonderful! It was located close to many Austin attractions (not more than a 15 minute drive), and the neighborhood wasn't too difficult to navigate.
Apartment was as described...roomy, clean, complete with a playground and toys for my daughter. Rachel was very welcoming and accommodating, even helping us find local things to do with our daughter. When small issues arose (out of her control) she was quick to fix the problem. I would recommend her as a host to anyone, and will return ourselves. The only negative Is the neighborhood...at no time did I feel unsafe by any means, it is just the neighborhood is a bit untidy.
This very cozy apartment was perfect for our family holiday vacation. We loved the special treat welcoming us upon our arrival and appreciated Rachel checking-in with us to make sure we had arrived safely. The apartment had all the basic amenities we needed for our long weekend, and a kitchen stocked with coffee was an added bonus! We felt safe and secure in the apartment and neighborhood. Rachel & her adorable family were very caring, gracious hosts. If I lived in Austin, I would want to be a part of their bike gang. :)
Our experience at this property was amazing. We were greeted by the owner when we arrived and had fresh homemade cookies waiting for us (they were great!). They had tons of cool toys that kept our 4 year-old (and even me) occupied with hours of fun while we were there. I'd recommend staying here to anyone!
Un lugar con excelente ubicacion para el centro de Austin. En 5 min llegamos al centro. Rachel fue muy amable con nosotros y nos preparo unas galletas y un cafe recien molido, riquisimo!
El apartamento muy limpio y todo en excelente orden. Definitivamente regresaremos otra vez!
Rachel was a gracious host & made our stay very comfortable & easy. Traveling out of state (California) for the first time with our 6 month old was less stressful because of Rachel & family's accommodations (she let us use a Pac-n- Play, stroller, etc so wecould travel light). This studio is very spacious with high ceilings & great art & funky- fun decor. Very quiet & close to the airport & 10 mins from downtown. A really great space for a small family. Thank you so much for a wonderful visit to Austin, Rachel!
family of 5. dad, mom & 3 littles.
love our city, meeting people & traveling.
it's nice to have a comfy place to stay while you're away.
we look forward to meeting you!
