About this listing
Location is the key word for this awesome property conveniently located in the heart of Old West Austin. Just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Whole Foods flagship store, upscale shopping and gourmet dining (also check out the in store performances at Waterloo Records, around the corner). The neighborhood, referred to as Clarksville by locals, is entirely safe for nighttime walking and flying solo. Downtown is close enough to get lost in, and my place makes it easy enough to escape the hustle, retreat from the bustle, and unwind.
Here's what to look forward to in this great hidden gem studio:
-Full kitchen equipped with cookware, stove, and all items needed to craft your meals
-Full bathroom with all amenities to make you feel right at home
-Studio with open floor plan, queen size bed, and large plush sofa, promotes spacious area for relaxing after a full event-filled day
-Flatscreen TV and wifi access will ensure that you stay connected to the outside world during your stay
-Smartphone/ipod connection available to play your favorite tunes
-Coin operated washer/dryer on site for airing out your dirty laundry
Walk outside this quiet retreat and find yourself right in the middle of it all! As previously mentioned, walking in this neighborhood to all downtown attractions is easy and effortless. A short, inexpensive cab ride there - and a brisk stumble walk back. Perfect for the ACL, Formula One, or SXSW enthusiast!

For not being a veteran AirBnB user, the interaction was super easy. Convenient location that is close to a lot of places but still tucked away in a nice neighborhood.
I had a great time at Alexis' house. Everything was as advertised and I was perfectly centrally located. Alexis was such a great host. My girlfriend and I loved getting in to mimosas in the fridge. I would recommend this home to anyone visiting Austin.
Loved our experience at Alexis's place! It's in a fantastic location. Alexis was also very easy to get a hold of, and had great recommendations for restaurants around the area. She also provided the "breakfast of champions" for us, which was awesome. A++. Highly recommend!
This was my first time using airbnb and it was a great experience. Alexis' place was clean and cozy, and felt like home for a few days. She was very friendly and sent messages to give me some local food suggestions and to check if I needed anything. This little apartment building doesn't look like much from the outside, but it is surrounded by big beautiful homes. The neighborhood is really charming and close to everything I wanted to explore. I saved money by not staying at a hotel and had a more local experience. Win!
Hotel Alexis is fab. Great location right near Whole Foods/an easy Uber ride anywhere for less than $10. And the bed is super comfortable. Mimosa makings in the fridge help too! Alexis is also super easy to deal with and very responsive to questions. Would definitely stay again.
My boyfriend and I came down to Austin on vacation and Alexis's spot was perfect. It's in a very centrally located area. We did not have to rent a car. We walked easily everywhere and had access to Bcycle, the towns city bike program, and biked around one day. There are also zip car locations nearby for the one day we drove to Lockhart for BBQ. There is a big parking lot if we happened to rent a car. $20 uber ride from airport.
The apartment was clean and cozy with plenty of fresh towels. Full dish set with silverware, pots and pans. We like to cook breakfast in the mornings. A/C was great. Internet was fast.
All in all a great stay! Exactly how it is described--i would recommend!
About the Host, Alexis
I am a simple student of the universe, living a dream in Austin, Texas. I enjoy good yoga instruction, good wine, and good conversation. I live modestly, and my favorite destination is where ever my family is (or where ever i can catch a Madonna concert;)).
