This one bedroom one bath house can be your home away from home when you're visiting Austin. It is centrally located in the lovely neighborhood of Rosedale. Only a few miles from Downtown and South Austin, its close in, yet far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. Rosedale is an older established neighborhood with lots of beautiful, mature trees. Ramsey Park is just three blocks away and in summer you can enjoy the lovely swimming pool there. The town lake trail (Shoalcreek portion) is an excellent option for walking or biking.
The house is lovely, with a gourmet kitchen if you like to cook... and plenty of nearby neighborhood restaurants if you don't. Uchiko, one of Austin's finest, is within walking distance (Chef Paul won TV's Top Chef). Taco Deli and Julio's will satisfy your breakfast taco needs... and if you're a beer lover, the Alamo Draught house is just around the corner. Coffee shops and wine bars are plentiful too. There are many awesome eateries within a one mile radius of the house, but as mentioned above, Downtown and South Austin are just a few miles away. And oh, did I mention the trailer food? You have to try it!
Central Market is the neighborhood grocery store and it is awesome. It even has live music on the patio some nights! If you prefer a smaller grocery shopping experience, try Wheatsville or Natural Grocers on Guadalupe. Wednesday night is Farmer's Market at the Triangle, where you can buy local produce and meat.
That's probably enough about food. You see where my mind is!
I should also mention that Ginny's Little Longhorn Saloon, the best little honky tonk in Texas, is just down Burnet Rd. Every Sunday is Chicken **it bingo and live honky tonk music. The music scene in Austin is amazing and if you want to know more about that, let me know. There are so many wonderful music and dancing venues in town. Many of those are downtown or down south... still only about 4 to 6 miles from the house.
The bus line is just down the road if you don't have a car or don't want to drive.
Hope you'll visit our wonderful city!
We had a great stay in Louie's condo. Louie was right there for us at check in and check out as scheduled. She left us helpful information and was very friendly and engaging. The condo was clean and very nicely outfitted with everything we needed. The kitchen has everything, including a dishwasher, microwave, small coffee pot and a real ice maker in the fridge. We took advantage of our in-unit washer/dryer unit which worked great. Wireless service worked for us seamlessly and the large HDTV with cable was very nice. The location was perfect with Curra's next door (our favorite breakfast and a wonderful dinner), the convenience store at the gas station was a plus and we used the giant HEB and CVS down the road. It is an easy 10 minute walk to the main bus routes. There is a less frequent bus line right on the corner if you want to reduce walking. Cab fare to the airport is about $25 off-peak non-rush hour times and took about 20 minutes. The location is quiet, and we felt very safe. The entrance gates make it secure. The South Congress area is loaded with so much to see and do and so many great dining options (several even within walking distance), we didn't have time to hit them all. We had a great time and will recommend Louie and this condo to everyone!
Louie's condo is great. Clean, convenient, well equipped and comfortable. The units are within easy walking distance of bus lines, probably the best Mexican restaurant in all of Austin and convenience stores. We could not have asked for anything more. We will want to stay here during future trips to Austin.
The condo was perfect for a weekend getaway. It was clean, quiet and great location. The condo had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and worry free. Louie was super nice and welcoming. Our trip was a spur of the moment and Louie was kind enough to accommodate us. We will definitely stay here again.
Louie's place was just....Brilliant!
The apartment was super clean with extra clean bedding, sheets and even a ready washer / dryer which was super handy!
Location is really great and as i got to know Austin more i realized this rental is located at the center of almost everything i could ever need. Massive supermarket (HEB), Mcdonald's and many other cool local attractions / events.
Neighborhood is very quiet, neighbors are friendly with no sins of outside trouble / rawkus
Honestly, i couldn't have picked a better rental if i tried any harder..and Louie was a superstar giving advice about local surroundings etc
Austin is certainly more of the city you need to drive to get around but this never stopped my enjoyment at Louies Fantastic apartment
Would definitely stay here again without a second thought

This was my first time using Airbnb, and Louie made it very easy. She was very prompt in returning my emails and was very gracious about meeting us earlier than we anticipated when our flight landed early. Her condo is very convenient and was very comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay at her place again!
Great, quick and clear communication with Louie! The location was perfect as we rode bikes to ACL all weekend and around SoCo. The condo was sparkling clean! Space is perfect for 2 people, but wouldn't recommend more than that - if you are quite tall (like my boyfriend 6'2") the bathroom might be a little too small for you. The pool was a lovely relief from the heat and a great place to relax. Amazing places nearby to eat and even late at night. Live music and great shops just down the road on South Congress. We LOVED Austin!
I had a great time staying in Louie's place. It's a great size, well appointed and has great amenities. It was everything we were looking for in our stay. All of the neighbors introduced themselves and there is even a small pool to help manage the summer heat. It's also a 15 minute walk to restaurants and bars and a 10 minute walk to an enormous grocery store. Louie herself is incredibly helpful and pleasant - any questions we had she was more than responsive. I would absolutely recommend staying here.
Louie not only serves as the perfect host, but also provides the absolute perfect (clean) condo in the perfect location for your Austin stay.
The pool was great, the neighbors super friendly, and the location- a ten minute walk to the heart of all the SoCo action!
We had a blast in Austin and owe much of that to Louie and her condo. Louie was so welcoming and accommodating, and made us feel right at home. I highly recommend you allow Louie to do the same for you!
You won't be disappointed!
Louie was an ideal host, extremely welcoming and helped me find a few very cool things to do in the area. The condo is in a fantastic location and was extremely clean, well maintained and was loaded with amenities. Do not hesitate. This place helped seal the deal on my move to Austin. Great 1st experience using Airbnb.
Stayed here for a month between leases and it was perfect. The apartment was stocked with everything I could possibly need. If I did need to buy anything, CVS and HEB were extremely close to the apartment. The bed was comfortable and the A/C battled the July heat valiantly. I am happy with my decision to stay at #6 the past month and serve as my introduction to Austin.
Contact with Louie was always quick and easy. You won't regret it.
