About This Listing
Great location, clean, quiet, walking distance to UT and downtown.
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 (local channels, DVDs, 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.
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 cab 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 cab ride. Starbucks and Wells Fargo are 2 blocks in one direction, sandwich shops and pizza 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 15% occupancy tax I pay to Austin and the state of Texas. Airbnb adds their own fees on top of my rates.
*Downtown Oasis is right next door to Downtown Oasis 2, which is also my property. They are very similar in layout and identical in amenities.
**Some weekends and special events are at higher rates. SXSW has a 5 night minimum stay. F1 and ACL have a 3 night minimum.**
I provide the following amenities for your stay:
Clean sheets, extra blankets
Soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash
Iron and ironing board
A few snacks and drinks to welcome you!
Please treat the Downtown Oasis as you would your own home. There are dumpsters in the garage for you to throw out your trash at the end of your visit. If you leave dishes in the dishwasher, please run it before you leave so I can unload it when I come to clean. Please be sure that I have your cell number before your stay so that I will be certain to answer your calls or texts promptly. The complex is super quiet - you won't hear a thing your entire stay - so please help keep it that way. The Downtown Oasis is such a peaceful, quiet place I know you're going to love it!
Alexis was very thorough in explaining the logistics of location, how to get in, etc. And everything was clearly labeled so it was a snap to figure everything out.
The place is great, the building is really quiet, and in a great location and close to everything. The place is really clean and updated. Alexis was very accommodating and made the whole trip a breeze.
The place is very comfortable for about 2-3 people. The price was very reasonable, and will definitely look at renting this listing again when in Austin!
This place is incredible! The listing is accurate in every way possible. Alexis is a super thoughtful host, who responds in a very timely manner. We were three adults and small child and we had great 4 nights at this clean, neat, well lit, spacious and reasonably priced place. The snacks are substantial and tasty; there are also all kinds of very practical supplies in both the kitchen and the bathroom. It is within walking distance of downtown or a very short and inexpensive cab ride. There's a 7-11 close by if you need any milk or things of that nature. What a fantastic experience!
Alexis has clearly put a great deal of thought into hosting travellers. The apartment was impeccably presented exactly as the photos. The welcome basket, first aid drawer, detailed instructions and local information provided, shows how much attention to detail Alexis has put into this listing. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay.
Location wise it is only a minutes walk to the 801 or 803 bus which will take you straight to the CBD ($1.75 one way). Or you can walk it in about 15 minutes. We would definitely recommend this listing, it is our number one Airbnb stay so far!
We had a wonderful stay at Downtown Oasis! Alexis made coordinating the visit so easy, and the place was clean and exactly as pictured. Very welcoming and a great size for three adults, I highly recommend staying here.
Private Oasis was better than we expected. It was true to the description and pictures, and in a pretty, but quiet, neighborhood and still close to down town. Alexis was quick to respond to all of our messages and very helpful in suggesting cool things to do during our visit. She even provides breakfast, snacks, drinks, and some toiletries, which made packing for our trip easier. Great place and host, would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

About the Host, Alexis
Thank you for looking at my listings: Downtown Oasis and Downtown Oasis 2 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.
