The Space

Come enjoy beautiful Austin! This modern garage apartment is located in the heart of the Holly St neighborhood. It is walking distance to Cesar Chavez and East 6th St restaurants and bars. One mile to downtown, West 6th St, Rainey St and Convention Center. Half mile to Plaza Saltillo train station. Number 21 bus is half block away, Number 17 is blocks away, and both take you straight downtown in minutes.

The apartment has alley access and a parking spot for one car. Complete privacy! But, if you need any thing at all I live in the front house and am happy to assist. This apartment is fully equipped with full size fridge, stove, microwave, 47" LCD TV, stereo, queen bed, full size tub and shower, free WiFi, French Press and so much more.

Please check cancellation policy. Consider travel insurance to protect against any losses.

Getting Around

Getting around without a car is fairly easy. There are two buses close by that go downtown (numbers 22 and 17). There is a train that goes downtown and north, the closest station is Plaza Saltillo. Uber and Lyft also both operate in Austin and are pretty easy to find.

Other Things to Note

A cat did live here recently. The apartment has been cleaned, but if you are severely allergic this might not be the right spot for you. The cat now lives in the front house, but will still occasionally sun on the garage porch.

Austin, Texas, United States · Member since May 2014

I moved to Austin in 2003 to attend UT, and like many other people, I fell in love with this city. I have lived in my current home since 2007 and love the location and amenities that it has to offer. I spend my time playing sports, riding my bike, enjoying the nightlife, checking out bands and eating the great food Austin has to offer.

In 2010 I built a garage apartment with access to the back alleyway, and lived in there for 4 years while renting out the front house. When my tenants moved out I decided to rent out the garage apt to others who visit town for many of the great events Austin is host to. I am more than happy to offer suggestions on anything, including where to eat/drink, buy groceries, sight see, swim, listen to music, etc. Since I live in the front house I am very accessible, but privacy for you and your guests is my highest priority.
