The Space

This is the perfect place to enjoy the Austin experience!

I have a 2 bedroom apartment (one of which is a loft) and 1 bathroom (accessible through the main bedroom). This sweet space has high ceilings and a walk-in closet. The queen sized Temur-Pedic bed will sleep two easily and the loft space accommodates two more on another queen bed. There is plenty of natural light and the view from the 4th floor balcony is incredible as it overlooks the iconic "City of Austin" Power Landmark and the Missouri-Pacific rail line that used to feed it (fyi, it can be noisy...). Whole Foods is a block away for any provisions you may need. I even have the SXSW office across the street from my front door. Furthermore, convenience stores, Office Max, bars, restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, yoga (you name it) are all a few steps away. If you are not in the mood to walk, one of a dozen bike shops will rent bikes and/or the Car2Go program will really make you feel cool.

If you reserve my place, be sure to check out the Guestbook that I've created on Airbnb for great restaurant and bar recommendations!

Here are some highlights:
• 46" flatscreen with AppleTV (Netflix, etc.)
• Wireless high-speed internet
• One spot in parking garage
• Full kitchen
• Fresh towels
• Soap & shampoo
• Washer & dryer
• Iron & ironing board
• Balcony

I hope you choose my place, but good luck with your search regardless of where you stay! :)

  • We stayed at Tim's apartment for a girls weekend in Austin. It was great, he was a fabulous host. The apartment was perfectly situated next to the Whole Foods and Starbucks, and a quick walk to downtown. The apartment was super clean and beautifully decorated, and plenty of room for the four of us. The large windows and plenty of sunlight made our lazy morning breakfasts enjoyable, not to mention the Apple TV with Hulu Plus and Netflix.

    Our only caveat is that the two ladies sleeping in the master suite did hear noise from the train tracks on occasion, however the loft was fairly quiet.

    All in all, we would DEFINITELY stay here again when we come back to Austin.

  • Tim's place is clean, comfortable and centrally located, and the provided parking is a must if you're looking to spend any time downtown! Great location for Austin newbies and novices alike. Thanks, Tim!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Tim's loft. The location was awesome! We didn't spend a lot of time there because we were in Austin to celebrate our son's birthday, but let me tell you his Temperpedic bed was an awesome place to rest our head at night. Both mornings when we woke up we did not want to leave the bed. We loved the short cab rides or walks to wherever we were going. I highly recommend Tim's loft! Next time we head to Austin to visit our son, I'll be contacting Tim to see if he'll let us return.

  • Absolutely great spot. The design elements and attention to detail give the place such an open, inviting feeling -- and Tim set everything up in such a thoughtful way.

    In-apartment laundry a big plus, as well as convenient parking.

    *Highly* recommend.

  • Great location, beautiful and clean apartment! Very spacious apartment. Felt like home for me and my friends! Tim is a fantastic host! We needed to find accommodations last minute and even though Tim was out of town, he still made arrangements for us to get the keys and "come home" to a clean apartment with fresh sheets! He is responsive, considerate, and kind...everything you would want in a host! Would definitely stay here again!

  • Tim was wonderful to work with and his place is beautiful! My friend and I had a perfect girls' weekend . . . . Austin is a magical place, and being able to come "home" after being out on the town was so much nicer than going back to a dreary hotel room. I've done vacation rentals before, but not through AirBNB. Terrific experience! One tiny issue is the sound of the construction and the trains . . . bring ear plugs. We're both city folks, so we didn't think it would be a big deal, but they make a huge difference!

    Thanks again, Tim!
