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!

I stayed at "Hotel Lexis" during SXSW. It was a perfect location - close to the action but far enough to escape the madness. It's about a 30-minute walk to the convention center. I used Austin bike share all week and there are two docks just down the street from Alexis' studio. The surrounding neighborhood is gorgeous and it's super close to Whole Foods, 24 Diner (which was great!), and Waterloo. The studio was quiet with fast wi-fi, clean sheets, fresh towels, a fan, and a/c. I would stay here again!
The apartment is very simple but its exactly what you want in Austin. It is the perfect space for 1-2 people and Alexis has done a great job laying it out to make it seem even roomier than it is. The apartment close to downtown (walk/$5 uber), has all the essentials you need, and is comfortable to sleep in. Alexis was a great communicator, and while I never met her, she was very prompt and accurate about all of her descriptions and expectations.
The apartment has Apple TV and a bluetooth speaker, which is great for hanging out and getting ready. Alexis left a bottle of champagne and some OJ which was a really nice touch. The apartment is located in a very cute and quiet neighborhood, which still has access to great late night food options (24 Diner) and shopping (whole foods). I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to come to Austin that was focused on exploring.
Note: be sure to bring your own toiletries (toothpaste, bath soap, etc). This ain't a hotel people! :)
Apartment was nice, clean and well located to downtown Austin. There is a wholefoods market located within walking distance. Neighbourhood is great and walking distance to all Austin has to offer. Alexis was also vey responsive to questions.
While I didn't meet Alexis, the place was accurately described and located in a prime location to downtown. I must admit the bed was very comfortable and cozy! I enjoyed my time immensely in Austin.
Such a cute apartment in a great neighborhood. Alexis was a dream of a host and even left us a little arrival gift. She was incredibly responsive leading up to our stay and made sure our entrance was easy. If you are looking for a cute place to rest your head while you check out Austin, I highly recommend it.
If I come back to Austin I'd definitely look forward to staying here again!
This place is in a great location of downtown Austin. My girlfriend and I spent the weekend here to stay close to downtown Austin. You are a short walk away from West 6th with tons of great bars. Alexis' place is very clean and cozy. I would stay here again. I recommend this place to anyone looking to be a close walk to short can ride to anywhere in Austin Proper.
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;)).
