You could not find a better location in the "Soul of Austin" then this spot. We are located right off Barton Springs road steps from Zilker Park. You will have access to every inch of all that downtown Austin has to offer, including easy transportation to get around. You can sit back and people watch in our amazing neighborhood while sipping a cool one with something on the grill or walk a few steps to Flipnotics for a great latte and listen to some of Austin's most truly talented musicians. If it's Tex Mex you want head across the street to Chuy's for amazing food then jump on one of our bikes and head out to the springs for a swim, hike or nap. Maybe you'll want to walk around the corner to catch a show at the famous Alamo Draft house or hear Bob Schnieder at the Saxon Pub. Whatever you are looking for it's all right here.

  • The Suite Spot was the perfect place to stay in Austin. The location can't be beat and the space is fantastic. Amber was a great hostess and provided everything we could have possibly needed...and more! We'd definitely stay here again :)

  • Loved the suite! Just right for 2. Clean and well appointed. Lovely hosts and neighbors. Great neighborhood. Austin Cafe for breakfasts right down the hill. Easy bus ride downtown and a nice long walk to South Congress. Hope to stay here again!

    Thanks Melissa, it was great meeting you both. We love out neighbor's too! Hope you can make it back sometime soon. Take care!

  • I can't think of anything I would enjoy more than to sing the praises of Amber Deem and the Suite Spot. Not only has Amber anticipated everything you might need to enjoy your stay, but the location and space provide just the right balance of proximity to (and distance from) the intense energy of events like SXSW.
    I only hope Suite Spot will be available for my next trip to Austin. I also want to say how totally beyond the call of (hosting) duty Amber went to help me when a storm brought trees onto my house in another state, and I had to leave Austin on a moment's notice. You could not have a finer host. Exceptional person. Exceptional neighbors. SO glad Amber is part of Airbnb!

    Trish,
    You are the sweetest and most gracious person ever. I'm speechless...

    Thank you

  • This was my first airbnb experience and I have to say I'm very impressed with Amber and the suite spot. The unit is bigger than the pictures show...we slept 3 people quite comfortably. The futon folds down into a bed, which makes it more sleepable than the pictures lead you to believe. There is a nice porch and Amber let us borrow 2 bikes(helmets/lock included). It is a short walk/ride to Lamar and Zilker park, but if you want to walk around downtown it is a bit far(free bikes took care of that). The cat will even come over and say hi!

    It was great meeting all of you Anthony. So glad you were able to get out on those bikes! Hope you can make it back soon.

  • Great place with a great location. Easy walking distance to Zilker park and downtown. The brewery down the street, Uncle Billy's, was also very nice.

  • We had a great time in Austin. Amber's "Suite Spot" was a good location for getting around Austin. It was close to public transit and an easy drive to most popular spots - South Congress, downtown, etc. Other places were easily walkable - Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, Lady Bird Trail. Amber's unit was small for the two of us, but certainly adequate for our week-long stay. Could have used a hot plate so we could cook more in the unit, but I'm sure most people eat out a lot since Austin has so many dining and food truck options. Several were close by on Barton Springs Road.

    Response from Amber:

    Hi Bill,

    So glad you and Mary Jo got to all the great locations around us. I wish the weather would have been nicer and you could have hung out on the roomier patio and used the grill. Thanks for the hot plate suggestion I went ahead and put a new large electric skillet in the cabinet for those guests who want to do that extra cooking. Hope you two make it back to Austin in the near future.

    Take Care,
    Amber

  • This was our first time in Austin and staying at the Suite Spot was the perfect solution to an expensive soul-less hotel. The apartment looked exactly like it does in the photos. It was clean, cozy and had just about every comfort we needed for our short 4-night stay. The location was just perfect. Just south of the Lamar bridge to downtown and west of SoCo. Zilker park is a 2 minute drive away. Some of the best restaurants in Austin are located near the Suite Spot.

    Amber was a lovely, warm and down-to-earth host. Her communication before the trip was fantastic too. We really enjoyed meeting and chatting with her, but we unfortunately did not get to meet her husband John. If and when we go back to Austin, we would not hesitate to inquire about staying here again!

    Thank you for all your hospitality Amber!

    So great to meet you. John says next time you come back BBQ is on him! Really, I loved your "tour de food" of Austin. Everyone should do your trip here!
    Stay warm up there!

  • The Suite Spot helped give us a wonderful and memorable trip to Austin. Amber was super cordial and helpful. We loved the location, and being able to walk to Barton Springs and the awesome coffee shops and restaurants nearby was perfect. We ended up barely driving and were able to do a lot just in the immediate area.

    The space itself was cozy and clean. Couldn't ask for more. Thanks, Amber!

  • This really is a great place to stay in Austin. Sweet neighborhood close to the park and so much more. Clean, comfortable, and quiet home base to explore beautiful Austin and its nightlife.

  • Our experience at the Suite Spot was fantastic. We booked our stay on short notice, right before Christmas and we were met with quick and friendly response to confirm our stay and give us instructions for getting access to the place. When we arrived we couldn't be more pleased - the place was clean, had a very welcoming decor, and was in a great location. We really loved the neighborhood - usually we find something closer to downtown or north of the university, but we're now sold on Zilker. We visit Austin often and are really looking forward to our next stay!
