Description

The Space

Hyde Park is an historic neighborhood located right in the center of Austin and this charming backyard apartment is right in the center of Hyde Park, 2 blocks from neighborhood coffeeshops, restaurants, laundromat and grocery. It directly faces the Elizabet Ney Sculpture Museum and is half a block from Shipe Park and Pool (open in summer).

The apt. consists of two large rooms plus a bathroom. One room is a study, with a vast library collection, writer's desk, futon sofa, love seat which pulls out into a single bed, comfy chair, and TV/DVD/stereo/cable/WIFI.

The second room has a queen bed with carved wooden frame, dining table for six, small kitchen with sink, oven, microwave, refrigerator, coffeemaker and toaster. There is a bathroom with shower off of this room.

The apartment has saultillo tile floors throughout, ceiling fans in both rooms, window units in both rooms and electric heaters stored in the supply closet. It is well insulated and stays cool in summer and warm in winter.

The apartment is a quiet getaway in a beautiful neighborhood. It's a great place for a couple or a family of four. Bus stops are close by and the area is ideal and safe for walking. Our STR License # is 021015.

House Rules
Check-in is after 2PM

We live on the property in the main house that faces the apartment, and therefore ask for grace and courtesy from you and will of course extend that to you. We have 2 active middle school sons that are known to play soccer in the backyard. Come expecting that you are right in the middle of a neighborhood and life will be going on around you. We offer a home-y environment, not a pristine hotel. If anything is not working properly, we will do our best to get it taken care of. We both work full time so on-site response time may not be immediate! We ask that you not smoke on the property, but do let us know if you need anything. We love our spot here in Central Austin and look forward to sharing it with you!

Austin, Texas, United States · Member since March 2012

My husband Adam and I run a small, arts focused high school here in the neighborhood called Griffin School. Prior to joining him in this endeavor, I worked in the film industry here in Texas as a location manager, scouting and arranging the logistics for movies and television productions of all sizes. I grew up in South Carolina, spent a year studying in Innsbruck, Austria and graduated from the University of Notre Dame, before making my way to the warmer climate of Austin. We have 2 sons, ages 12 and 14. They are sweet, athletic boys who spend much of their time at the basketball courts and park across the street. Austin has been my home for 23 years and I love every single thing about it-the celebration of eccentricities, the live music, the vibrancy and activism, the weather and the fabulous people that make it such a special and unique town.
