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. (Tide 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.
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 is a superb hostess, not only is the apartment welcoming, spotless, and comfortable, but also she has added so many thoughtful touches (snacks, information, instructions) for a traveler that it was more comfortable than being in a hotel. The location was perfect for me and very quiet. I really do want to stay here again when I come back to Austin. Thanks Alexis!!
The apartment was very welcoming, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The whole apartment felt like a home away from home, with all the amenities that could have asked for including little things. Alexis was a great hostess, available to us at any time and made sure that we had everything that we needed. The location was perfect. We were able to easily walk or take public transportation to all the places we wanted to in Austin. The University is especially close as well as the downtown area which is just 15-20 minute walk. There is also a bus station very close by. I would be happy to stay here again in future trips to Austin.
Downtown Oasis was one of the best decisions we had made for our first trip to Austin. The location was perfect. The apartment was impeccable, and had all the necessities, and snacks! We loved being able to drive into the garage and have a space reserved for us. The laundry area of the complex was conveniently located steps from our door. Alexis couldn't have been more helpful. She responded promptly with whatever questions we had.
We hope to one day return to Austin, and when we do, we will hopefully call Downtown Oasis our home away from home again!
Great location. We were able to get to all areas of the city with ease. The place was very clean and organized. Alexis has prepared a lot of materials (info on Austin) and was very responsive with our questions! Definately an ideal airbnb experience! We will be looking into this place again for all future visits to Austin!
Great apartment! It's very much like a hotel since there are no personal belongings then. She even leaves bagels, orange juice, waters, etc. in the refrigerator for us. The location is great too; if you like walking like we do, it's perfect. Only 20-25 minutes from downtown. Alexis was also always available via text or phone call to help us if we needed anything. Everything you could want from a place in Austin!
The apartment was amazing! Very clean, spacious, and welcoming. Situated in a good place in Austin, about 5 minute drive / 15 minute walk from downtown. Alexis has been super-helpful with tips, everything in the apartment is labeled and explained, there's a big folder full of stuff and recommendations about the city and what to do.
Great Airbnb experience, really nice apt. There's a reason why she's a super host!

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 then migrated out to Austin in the 90s. After leaving to live in L.A., Houston, San Diego, and Seattle, I made my way back to Austin and am so happy to be back where I belong!
