PERFECTLY LOCATED IN CENTRAL AUSTIN
This vacation studio, in the garden behind our home, is part of a historic, quiet neighborhood, yet it's right in the middle of all the action! You will be within a few blocks of many of Austin's best restaurants, cafes, film, theatre, music venues, and the crown jewel parks of Austin: Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail, Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool.
See our AirBNB Guidebook for details.
Perfectly located for both the ACL Music Festival and SXSW. The neighborhood is hip, funky, friendly, and classic Austin.
SLEEPS 2 +
The 10' x 20' room has a queen size bed (sleeps 2) + a very large L-shaped couch, where another person or 2 kids can stay in a pinch. There is wireless internet, a small refrigerator, coffee and tea makers, microwave, and outdoor bbq.
You have your own patio and garden, for relaxing. There is also an outdoor ping-pong table, under a grove of pear trees.
We are a small family, living in the front house, and are great fans of vacationing in Austin! We can provide maps, excellent tips for music, feasting, biking, swimming, and generally enjoying Austin.
TO GET AROUND
You can access Austin's public bus system, use a car2go, walk or rent bikes (our preference) ! Bike rental is a few blocks away.
Walking or biking, you will quickly get to all the best that central Austin has to offer.

This was my first airbnb experience and it was very positive. Great location, easy to find, colorful neighborhood that really captures Austin's quirkiness. For tourists it is centrally located near the park and lots of hot spots. comfortable space, i found the large bed very firm, so i preferred sleeping on the couch which i found very comfy. My host had left me snacks and tea/coffee fixings. I enjoyed the CD player. quiet, clean and very private. Would be happy to return.
This was our first time to Austin. And Margo's small cottage was the perfect space. Centrally located, quiet, private, clean, comfortable....we had a great visit.
Great place to stay in close-in Austin. The location is perfect (both for convenience and the fun of being in a funky neighborhood vs a sterile hotel district), hosts are warm and helpful, space is comfortable and very clean. It is a very good value. The space is quite small (it's hard for me to imagine staying there with more than 2 people but I am a little spoiled, I think; if you're on a budget, you can definitely make it work; it will just be very "cozy"). Both bed and sofa were very comfortable and there's a desk area that was put up after the photos were taken which is kind of nice for using your computer, or even just lining up all the electronics to charge them). They have definitely made the most of the space.
Margo was a great host, and we really enjoyed the space. It was a clean, comfortable, and affordable place for the weekend. Would return without hesitation.
I would 100% recommend Margo's studio for anyone looking to rent a private space in Austin.
Margo and Gregory are wonderful. They were easy to communicate with prior to our visit, available for recommendations during our stay and just overall very friendly people.
The studio is behind their home with a separate entrance, it is very comfortable with great attention to detail.
The location is very central, several great walkable restaurants nearby and close to the lake and parks.
Overall a great place to stay in Austin!
Great place, lovely hosts and fantastic location to get to downtown Austin, although the neighbourhood itself was great with some really nice restaurants nearby, Umani, Uncle Billy's and Green Mesquite particularly! Thanks for a great weekend!
My friend and I rented this apartment for 2 nights for FunFunFun Fest. It was exactly what we needed. Plenty of sleeping space, every needed amenity. The apartment was very clean. I'll more than likely be revisiting for the next event in Austin.
Gregory and Margo were wonderful hosts and were sincerely interested in helping me have a nice visit.
The Zilker studio was clean, cozy, quiet, and equipped with a good sized little frig, plenty of glasses, mugs, plates, and utensils.
The studio is located in a safe and walkable neighborhood that have darling homes that are examples of south Austin/funky vernacular style.
I would stay here again.
Margo and Gregory are wonderful hosts! They cared so much and really made our Austin experience perfect. Also, the studio is a great, clean and comfortable place to stay. We even got a detailed map with walking routes from the studio to all the local restaurants and things to do. Thanks both for the great time!
Margo and Gregory were excellent hosts, very nice and accommodating. The Zilker Studio was very comfortable and relaxing. Great location for ACL, Barton Springs, everything within walking distance. I would recommend highly and will stay again if the opportunity arises.
