Great location, clean, quiet, walking distance to UT and downtown.

The space
This completely renovated condo is in the heart of downtown Austin. Walking distance to Campus, the AT&T Conference Center, the Erwin Center, the Capitol, and even 6th street. Granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom, bamboo floors, and beautiful new fixtures. Snacks and beverages await you when you arrive. Nicer than a hotel room with all the conveniences of home.

Technically a studio, the bedroom area has been nicely appointed (memory foam queen bed) and separated from the living room with curtains. This lends visual privacy in case you have 2 more friends staying on the fold-out futon couch in the living area. There are plenty of linens, extra pillows, throw blankets, foam topper for the futon, and even a twin-size tri-fold mattress if the futon gets too crowded. Make yourself at home watching TV (Sling TV and Netflix provided), using the wireless internet, or cooking a meal in the beautiful kitchen with all new, state-of-the-art appliances. There is a laundry room next door to the condo where you can do your laundry for free. (Detergent pods and Bounce sheets provided!)

Please note: this unit is on the third floor and there is no elevator. There is also no pool or play area for small children, and the condo is not baby-proofed. No pets. Maximum occupancy is 4, no exceptions!

Nueces Street is a quiet street with plenty of parking (free after 6 and on Sundays) and feels light years away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There is free parking under the building (one assigned spot - reserved for your use), and the building itself could not be any quieter. You will truly enjoy this downtown oasis!

If you are in town for a conference at the AT&T center, you will be happy to know it is only 6 easy blocks away.

Four blocks from the UT campus, eight blocks from the Erwin Center, eleven blocks or a $5-$7 Uber ride to 6th street or the football stadium. The Austin Convention Center is just about a mile and a half away, for a leisurely stroll through downtown or a $7-$8 Uber ride. Starbucks and Wells Fargo are 2 blocks in one direction, sandwich, taco, chicken, and pizza places 2 blocks in the other. There is a 7-11 in both directions. Great Indian food and neighborhood pubs in easy walking distance. This home away from home is near everything you need!

(If you are here to explore ALL the sights in Austin, I recommend renting a car. Austin is a big city.)

A note on check-in and check-out - it's as easy as can be at Downtown Oasis. While I love meeting my guests, it doesn't always work out with changing schedules. You will be given the updated electronic lock code for the door a few days before your stay. So it is never a problem if you need to arrive late or leave early - there is a solution in place!

Please let me know how many people will be staying and if you need the futon bed made up in advance. There is no charge for extra guests (max 4) but it helps me allot enough time for cleaning and preparation when I have proper information.

I am fully licensed by the city of Austin, and my rates include the 9% occupancy tax I pay to the city of Austin. Airbnb adds the 6% Texas state tax, along with their own fees, on top of my rates.

*Some weekends and special events are at higher rates. SXSW has a 5 night minimum stay. F1 and ACL have a 3 night minimum.*

Guest access
I provide the following amenities for your stay:

Clean sheets, extra blankets
Towels
Soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash
Iron and ironing board
Hair dryer
A few snacks and drinks to welcome you!

Other things to note
Parking is an assigned spot in a covered garage. The garage has low clearance (7 feet) and the parking spots are regular, car-sized spots. Large SUVs and trucks will stick out too far. There is paid street parking ($1/hr) from 8am to 6pm, and it is free overnight.

Thank you for looking at my listing: Downtown Oasis in Austin, Texas. A little about me: My passions range from books, movies, animals, and anything Austin to traveling the world. I've seen many of the great sights here in the U.S. and have also managed to visit Canda, Mexico, Australia, several places in the Caribbean, many countries in Europe, and a variety of countries in Asia. Singapore is probably my favorite country, but just to visit! I grew up in Connecticut and lived in Austin, L.A., Houston, San Diego, and Seattle. Austin was and is my favorite place to live. It's home.

During your stay
I am just a text or email away. My phone silences texts from 11pm to 8am, so if there is an emergency during that time please CALL. Otherwise text is probably the fastest way to reach me.
