Chic Historic Tucked Away Studio

Apartment - Entire home/apt · W 9th St, Austin, TX 78703, United States

The Space

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 & high end toiletries 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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place! There was an issue with the internet and the door lock but Alexis was super quick to respond and fixed everything quickly. In walking distance to many nearby attractions. Would recommend!

  • Our stay at Alexis' place was great! Everything was clean/tidy. Location was perfect! Alexis was very gracious & made us feel welcome & was readily available to answer any questions. Would definitely stay here again!

    February 2014
  • Alexis was friendly and accommodating and very quick to respond to questions during the stay. The apartment is clean but not incredibly big. Good location and safe neighborhood. A brisk walk to most things.

  • My second stay at Alexis's was just as good as the first. Would definitely stay again. She's a great host and made me feel welcome even though we didn't meet. The place was clean, tidy and comfortable.

    February 2014
  • Alexis was a great host and although we never met in person, he made sure I was all set and felt comfortable in his apartment. He gave me some great recommendations for the area as well. The apartment was also a great location as I was able to venture downtown and walk back no problem! Will look to again if I find myself in Austin again.

  • Nice and cosy apartment in a very good location. 20m walk to downtown, car rental close by and Whole Foods HQ just around the corner. Well equipped kitchen to top it up. Plenty of opportunities for a jog!

    November 2012
  • Alexis was just a fantastically perfect host! From the moment I reached out to him on Airbnb he was kind, funny, accommodating, and witty! He shared fun suggestions and his place is just perfectly located on the outskirt of downtown- away from all the hubub of the main part of 6th street, close to all the awesome and calmer sports and themed bars and down the street from an amazing diner, fantastic Louisiana style restaurant, and the most giant Whole Foods ever. I was able to walk pretty much everywhere from his place (including SoCo). The inside was clean, simple, and wonderful to come home to at night- he utilizes the space of this studio impeccably to feel relaxed and welcoming.

    In addition, the surrounding area is perfect! Safe and quaint with amazingly beautiful and historic homes! Overall I would absolutely recommend both Alexis and his flat to anyone staying in Austin! I was sad to have to leave and lucky to have called his place home for a week! Thank you!!

  • Alexis' pad proved the perfect place for my friend and I to stay during the AFF & Conference. Prompt responses and accommodating our needs, Alexis was an excellent host. Although we were hardly there, critical needs like cleanliness, constant hot water for the shower, air con, lots of closet space, a comfortable bed, a comfortable sofa to sleep on, in a safe, quiet neighbourhood a 20 minute stroll to the Driskill were met. Highly recommend!

    October 2012
  • Although I didn't get to meet Alexis, my stay was great. Her place is conveniently located, nicely furnished, and very clean. She even took the time to leave me a tasty breakfast in the fridge! I'd definitely stay here again.

    October 2012
  • I really enjoyed staying at Alexis' apartment. Its location is ideal, on a beautiful tree-lined street and within walking distance to restaurants. The apartment is simple but cozy and didn't lack anything - there was even a bottle of champagne waiting in the fridge. Alexis is a great host, very easy to communicate with. I would stay here again, and I strongly recommend this listing.

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;)).
