Cozy Tree House in East Austin! Enjoy the best neighborhood Austin has to offer! Cozy garage apartment with wood floors, covered deck and walking distance to Lady Bird Johnson Lake with hike and bike trails, downtown Austin and many restaurants and bars. This space features a private bedroom with queen bed, tub, a separate kitchen, living area and a covered deck. A sofa bed in the living area offers sleeping arrangements for up to two more people.

A stackable washer/dryer is available for your longer stays. In the winter you’ll have a slight view of downtown Austin.

Other than the occasional dog barking, it's actually very quiet and secluded in the middle of all the fun. Most mornings you’ll wake up to birds singing and roosters crowing. Coffee on the covered deck is delightful and perfect for people watching.

This location is ten blocks away from downtown and a little more quiet. UT Austin is less than three miles away and the Austin Convention Center is less than one and a half miles away. The bus stop is two blocks away at Holly Street and Chicon. Move south and you will find the hike and bike trail that will lead you to all sorts of adventures. Move north and you will find the vibrant East 6th Street bar and restaurant scene. Just one block away you will find the best healthy Mexican food money can buy at Mr. Natural’s and specialty cocktails at Weather Up. There is also a corner store nearby.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a wonderful stay in Austin, and this little "tree house" was a great place to stay - close enough to downtown to walk, and also near cheap food which is always a plus. Thanks for having us!

  • Christina's apartment was spotless when we arrived. We arranged an earlier check-in with no issue. We did not find the apartment hard to find, but as noted, it is tucked away off the street. We thought it was perfectly situated in the City to see all the East Austin hangouts but also see downtown. We walked back and forth a few times from downtown ... it is a bit far but manageable. There were endless possibilites in the neighbourhood for good food & drink! I would recommend her place to anyone looking to have a nice place to stay while in the City!

  • Everything was as advertised and exceeded my expectations. Cristina was available and quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had. In a nut shell, I'd definitely stay here again.

  • This spot was perfect for our four-day weekend in Austin. The place was super clean and centrally located. It was a little bit hard to find for visitors because it was tucked away from the street, but it was nice and quiet. We'd definitely stay here again.

  • Cristina's garage apartment was really cozy for our week long stay in Austin! We were in town for the birth of our baby boy that we adopted and had all the amenities we needed. The temperatures plummeted while we were staying here, but we were perfectly warm with the couple heaters provided.

    December 2013
  • We loved Cristina's cozy apartment. The East Side location was really interesting was a great jumping off point. Cristina was great to work with!

    December 2013
  • A nice and cosy little cottage in Austin, perfect for our stay. Cristina even went out of her way to provide us with extra blankets when the temperature plummeted unseasonally during our stay.

    November 2013
  • VERY happy with the accommodations! Great location, quiet and fully stocked. Towels, sheets, paper products, dishes, cooking utensils, toiletries, and other random items that you might have forgotten. Foodstuffs- coffee in the freezer, beer in the fridge. And most of all, the apt was impeccably clean. Very nice. I would highly recommend staying here and hope to do so again! Thank you Christina :) Oh, excellent communication from the host as well.

  • From the beginning we were pleased with Cristina's responsiveness and desire to accommodate her guests. The "Treehouse" was a wonderful experience. We found it to be well appointed, very clean, and very comfortable. Her attention to detail is to be applauded. The apartment has comfortable furnishings and decor. The quality and cleanliness of the linen, towels and kitchenware only further insured our confidence and comfort. We will certainly use the apartment whenever we visit. Nice job Cristina...!!

I am an El Paso native and John is from Sheboygan, WI! We enjoy our neighborhood and want you to experience everything Austin has to offer from great restaurants and entertainment to SXSW, ACL, X Games and Formula 1. Our dog Azore loves guests and will often greet them with barks followed by licks. Our favorite thing to do on a Sunday morning is to walk the dog on the hike and bike trail, stop at the Rowing Center to enjoy the view of the lake, then have breakfast at Jo's Coffee on West 2nd Street and walk back home through downtown.
