Our lovely apartment is located just at the tail end of South Congress, super close to downtown. Tons of great restaurants and shops, like Uncommon Objects, Amy's Ice Cream, Homeslice Pizza, and South Congress Cafe. Feel free to ask for recs, esp in the eating and drinking dept because it's kiiind of what we do best. You'll have your own bathroom, and full access to our kitchen, living room (couches, TV), laundry facilities. Gated community with free visitor parking and a lovely pool.
My roommate Dana and I are usually in and out at home when we're not at work so we will be home, but never in your way! Happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have.
We live right across from a cool convenience store called River City Mart, next to the CVS, and right by the grocery store HEB.
Cabs are pretty cheap to downtown (we're a 5 minute drive) and the bus stop outside our complex runs along South Congress couple bus stops near us (that's about the extent of knowledge of buses we have).
Feel free to message with any questions!
We loved the location and the cozy apartment. Thien-Y made sure that we have everything that we needed to make our stay great. We would definitely come back.
Great condo! It's a very good size two bedroom/two bath within a gated community. The home also has a large flat screen to watch movies on which came in handy since it was a freezing this past weekend and we did stay in some! I usually just take the bus when I'm in Austin but because it was so cold we called a taxi and it was only a 12$ cab fare to the heart of dt. The condo is also super clean and an extremely short walk to South Congress's restaurants and shops. Thein-Y was so easy to work with and only needed 30 mins notice for check in which was so convenient. Thein-Y and her roommate have the place decorated really cute and their place has a fun, cozy atmosphere! Definitely recommend staying here!
I had a great time in Austin, and that all started because I stayed here! The location could not have been better, plenty of space in the room to stretch out, and was quite comfy. Thien-y's roommate Dana was very knowledgeable, and offered many great suggestions on things to check out. Thanks again so much!
I stayed for 3 days, 2 nights in this spacious, yet cozy apartment with a good friend of mine. We felt very comfortable being able to spend as much or as little time as we wanted in the apartment. We cooked some meals in, and the conditions for prepping & cooking food were great. The cleanliness of the apartment is worth bragging about- everything had its place, and was simultaneously very welcoming and comfortable. We had plenty of space in the bedroom for our luggage and for just relaxing after a long day of exploring the city. It actually felt like it was our apartment for the weekend, which is a great feeling considering we were living out of our suitcases. The flexibility with checking in and out was extremely helpful as we had no agenda for the weekend and our plans changed slightly from what we had originally anticipated. It was very easy to communicate with Thien-y throughout the visit to know what the expectations were of us as visitors. The gated community was a nice perk as we were visiting from out of town and felt very safe. The accessibility to downtown was very convenient- we walked everywhere and took cabs if our shoes weren't walking-worthy. Overall, it was the ideal stay, and I will definitely book with Thien-y again the next time I visit Austin!
I was staying with Thien and her roomate for one night, very nice people to stay with, very kind and hospitable!
Very nice apartment in nice residence and well located, host easy to communicate with for arriving details and she gave her tips on how to get to different places in Austin. I would definitely recommend that place to stay!
I had a great stay with Thien-y, she made it super comfortable and easy for me during my stay. Even though she wasn't around when I checked in, she gave great instructions about getting to the place and getting settled. The location is awesome, walking distance to everything great on South Congress, and easy enough to get into downtown or anywhere else throughout the city you'd like to visit. I'd definitely stay here again on my next trip out.
Staying with Thien-Y was great! She was friendly and welcoming, and she shared lots of valuable Austin tips. The apartment itself was super clean and amazingly located--a 2-3 minute walk from South Congress. Parking at her building is very easy too. Highly recommended.
We loved our stay with Thien-Y and Dana - they were excellent hosts and the apartment is in a perfect location! The apartment was very clean, roomy, and pleasant, and they were extremely responsive, both when we were planning our trip and after we arrived. We'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for an easy, convenient stay in Austin and we hope to come back again soon!
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at Thien and Dana's place in the South Congress neighborhood. I'd highly recommend it to someone looking for a great quiet place in which to stay while exploring Austin.
Super safe neighborhood. Less than a minute walk to a market and a bus stop that takes you into downtown in less than 5 minutes. A few-minute walk to a bunch of cool boutiques, food trucks, restaurants, and bars. My girlfriend and I found it fairly easy (despite the heat) to get around by foot or by mixture of bus and foot. Neighborhoods/areas we had no problem getting to by foot: Barton Springs, Rainey Street, downtown, UT, and East Austin (the east 6th area).
Wonderful, friendly, and accommodating people. Able to answer any questions we had.
Within a gated complex. Has a pool a few steps away. Quiet. Well air-conditioned. Spacious bedroom. Clean bathroom. Clean place overall. Washer and dryer, seemingly new condition.
Cool place, cool people, really set us up well to explore and enjoy Austin. Would stay here again for sure.
