Relaxing treetop hideaway in Historic downtown Austin!!! Explore the Capitol City from this central, highly-walkable, newly-renovated condo. Walk to Zilker, UT campus, W 6th nightlife, world-class restaurants, Texas State Capitol, museums, and more!

I have also created a comprehensive house manual that describes how to get keys, parking, wifi, etc... You will gain access to the manual, in Airbnb, upon booking confirmation. Be sure to check it out, to make your stay as smooth as possible.

The space
Whether you're looking for a festival, a quick weekend getaway or in town for a conference or a Congressional session, this is the perfect spot to lay your head. If you're looking for a party pad, this unit is not for you :(

When you book with us, please refer to the "House Manual" in the "Your Trips" section of the AirBnB page (also in the confirmation email). It will include details on check-in/out procedures, wifi passwords, and other super-important stuff. I created it to answer 99% of your questions, in the event I am unable to respond immediately. That said, please reach out to me with any unaddressed questions.

At 650 sq ft, this peaceful 1/1 condo sleeps 4. There is 1 Queen bed in the bedroom and a sleeper sofa in the living room. I repeat, the second bed is a sleeper sofa. We also provide a high-end air mattress that’s quite comfortable. Also note, this is a 3rd floor unit without an elevator. That means 2 flights of stairs. The condo comes equipped with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and 2 amazing, private, treetop balconies to escape above the buzz of the surrounding city. Basically, it's badass and perfectly situated in downtown Austin.

Guest access
As our guest, you will have access to the entire apartment. No door is off-limits. We hope you enjoy yourself and feel at home. There is a well-marked assigned parking spot (#14) that will be dedicated for your use.

Other things to note
The building is super-old, so noise carries easily through the floor of this top-floor condo to the units below. If you use the pull-out sofa, please pull it out prior to going out for the night - it makes a loud bang on the floor and can wake up the neighbs downstairs (then I get to hear about it). Please, please, please be respectful of our neighbors!

The railings on the balcony and in the stairwell are spaced more widely than recent residential code now calls for. Please keep small children away from railings, as they could fall through.

Austin, Texas, United States

Living in historic downtown is incredible. There are plenty of great places to walk, eat, drink, and play. UT's DKR Stadium and The Frank Erwin Center (the major concert arena) are walking distance or a short cab-ride away. Many renowned chefs run restaurants in the surrounding blocks and you needn't look far for a place to catch the game, grab a beer, or an Austin-style cocktail.
