This is a huge house (3700 sq ft) which has a truly unique layout!
It's about 4 miles from downtown austin which means it's only a 10-15 minute drive to the convention center and venues on sixth st!
This spacious home has four bedrooms, four baths and two rec rooms which can be used as large bedrooms.
The coolest thing about this home is that it's separated into three spaces: the main level has two bedrooms, two baths, a living room, dining room and kitchen.
the east wing has an upstairs guest suite (bedroom, bathroom, and living space--with a pull out sofa) and the west wing has a downstairs rec room (with a butler's kitchen and big couches), and huge beautiful upstairs studio (filled with cool turn of the century texan furniture) with a bed and bath. This whole west wing has a separate entryway through the backyard with its own keyed entrance.
This space is perfect for a family, a group of coworkers that want to lodge together but would also like their own space, or a group of couples or singles that want to relax and spread out!!
There's two areas of outdoor seating, two flat screens, wifi, cable, wii (!), a traditional fireplace, an electric fireplace and lots of seating areas for breakfast or meetings. The windows provide a good view of this lovely part of town and many of them have comfortable bay seating.
here is the bed breakdown:
1 full sized sofa bed
there are also oversized couches in the house and lots of space for air mattresses.
This is a humongous house with lots of unique spaces, and lots of privacy if that's what you desire!

For my first trip to Austin I would highly recommend this place because not only is it a super cool set up, it's very close to downtown and within walking distance to so many things. I was there for the Formula 1 weekend. So it was nice to stay in a really clean, quite place while in town. It's decorated in a very cool way but more importantly it was really comfortable. Flip was very friendly, accessible. Anytime we communicated she was very quick to respond and helpful. I don't know what else to say...I'm coming back for sure. I would stay here if I were you
Late on a Friday, I decided to drive to Austin from Houston for some much needed R&R. I lived in Austin for years, so I knew I'd like the location. Even though it was almost 9 PM, Flip got back to me quickly, and was so accommodating. I was even more stressed out after rain and traffic delayed my arrival until after 1:00
AM, but as soon as I walked into the flat, I felt at home and relaxed. The flat is fantastic. It has a ton of character, with really interesting art and furniture, but it's still airy and uncluttered. It's absolutely my go-to spot in Austin. And I can't say enough wonderful stuff about Flip. Every owner/host should hire her to manage their airbnb rentals. The space is heaven. Flip's an angel. You won't be disappointed.
First time in Austin for me. It was a pretty convenient location - about a 3 mile drive to get into downtown. If you're willing to walk, there's a Torchy's Tacos & Summermoon coffee within half a mile. We had a large group and this place was great. The kitchen had all the amenities/gadgets you could want. Plenty of beds as described and the design of the whole place was a great combination of both retro and modern touches so it had a lot of style. Flip was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again!
This is my second time staying at the Flat in West 6th and it was awesome as usual. The best part of it all is Flip. She is the best host around and always makes sure that she goes the extra mile to make your stay awesome! Thanks Flip!
Really loved our stay at the flat and would recommend to anyone looking for a cool and eclectic place to stay. Photos represent the flat perfectly and the bed was beyond comfortable. Loved the privacy of the unit and location. We took taxis when we wanted to play downtown and that worked out perfect and was not expensive. Very close to some fun restaurants that sit on the lake too. Will be back again!! Flip was also very easy to work with.
The Blue Dahlia is a nice little flat at a good location. We enjoyed our stay there. The only thing really is that the walls are thin, so we were worried we would disturb people. But I think it was ok. Flip is a great host, and looked after us throughout our stay. She got us amazing breakfast when we arrived, and was helpful with all our queries. There was a problem with our booking, and we were worried for a while, but she sorted it all out really fast and in a great way. So all good:)
This place is amazing. I rented it for my mother who is from and resides in Sweden. She absolutely loved it, and with good reason.
The flat is perfectly situated. Easy access and super close to anywhere you would want to go, while still having a nice relaxing feeling of being your little hiding spot from the world.
Flip is super sweet and was very accommodating. She answered any and all questions very quickly in spite of a rather substantial time zone difference.
My 2 girlfriends and I stayed for the weekend. We had such a warm and memorable experience. The Blue Dahlia is electric and inviting. Flip was the hostess with the mostest! She was responsive, intuitive and welcoming. We can't wait to come back!
