We loved staying in the Zilker studio! Amy and Rick were excellent hosts...always available in the month that we stayed, very helpful. They actually made several upgrades when we were there that made the studio even more comfortable. Their back yard was beautiful, very green. We loved seeing the treetops from our studio windows.
The studio is an easy walk to the Hike and Bike Trails at Lady Bird Lake (also called Town Lake); there is a leash-free area for dogs on the trail. We were able to hear a number of excellent musicians while visiting and ate at several really good restaurants.
The studio is very clean, the colours relaxing, and the furniture comfortable. We highly recommend Amy, the studio, and the Zilker area. In fact, we can't wait to visit there again!
Perfect location and perfect studio. The layout and decor was great with every comfort in mind. A very thoughtfully designed space. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful. Would love to go back and stay there again!
We had a wonderful time during the week we stayed here. The apartment is beautiful and very cozy. The perfect amount of kitchen supplies were provided. Amy and her family live right across the backyard, so we could just knock on their door if we needed anything, but we never did, and we had our complete privacy. We will definitely try and stay here the next time we visit!
The apartment was perfect! Super clean and had everything we needed. Location was great- we just took a very short cab ride to downtown. We will definitely stay here again!!!:)
The apartment was nice and clean - we had a great time and it was the perfect location to discover Austin by foot/bus. We didn't have much interaction with Amy & Nick but they came out to say 'bye' when we left.
Amy and Nick were great. I stayed at the apartment for 4 nights because I was in town for a wedding and it was the PERFECT get away from all of the commotion of the wedding activities. They were understanding of the influx of people that came over and were very gracious hosts. The apartment itself was wonderfully decorated and very spacious. If I ever need a place to stay in Austin again, I will stay here. It's close to everything and at the same time a quiet, safe getaway. Highly recommended!
We stayed with Amy and Nick during the week of our wedding and the experience was wonderful! Amy and Nick were incredibly accommodating and helpful and so friendly. . .they even put together a beautiful flower arrangement as a congratulations! We loved the space and had no complaints. The location was perfect and the ammenities were top notch! Our little dog loved their beautiful yard and their cozy little space! We will definitely be back!
An amazing studio, beautiful and tastefully styled throughout with everything you'd ever need all within a safe and secure neighbourhood. Amy and Nick are the prefect hosts and I'd highly recommend this place and suggest you look no further if your planning a trip to Austin.
Thanks for the review and the suggestions. We've looked at doing blinds before but they won't really fit in the window frame. I'll look into getting heavier curtains. And I should have had a hair dryer up there. My bad. I took it out when we have a long term renter. Best to you both!
My wife and I highly recommend Amy's studio apartment in Austin. The large apartment is recently renovated with a kitchen, sitting area with library, wi-fi, comfortable bed and roomy bathroom. The off-street parking was very convenient. We had complete privacy in the 2nd story room over the garage - and had no noise issues of any kind. The location of the apartment is perfectly located to go into downtown Austin or to hop on the MoPac and be anywhere you want to go. For breakfast and dinner there are several places within walking distance that honor the Keep Austin Weird credo - such as Flipnotics right down the street. Amy was a gracious host - and we enjoyed meeting her. We'd gladly stay here again - except we're planning on moving to Austin!
Amy and Nick were ideal hosts, providing a pleasant, well equipped, and clean apartment. The bed was vey comfortable. The neighborhood was quite and safe. And it was located conveniently close to many Austin destinations. We'd stay at this location again without hesitation. Great visit.
Thanks again to Amy and Nick,
-- Tom and Maggie,
