The space

Well-appointed loft apartment with convenient access to all Austin has to offer.

Recently completed (summer 2012) and fully furnished garage apartment with lovely natural light; approx. 640 sqft.; comfortably sleeps 4 (queen bed in loft + queen futon in the living room). Kitchen with all the essential equipment. Wi-Fi. HDTV with access to Netflix & Amazon streaming and more.

Great location in the heart of 78704; convenient access to downtown Austin (~10 minutes by car/taxi, ~15 minutes by bus), South Congress, Austin-Bergstrom airport, Zilker Park (site of ACL Fest) and more. Just around the corner from several city bus stops, including the #3 and #803-Rapid which run near Zilker Park and right into downtown.

Please see the Guidebook for more info on local destinations.

We live in the main house on the property, so are generally available if needed, but the apartment is completely separate and private. We'd be happy to provide more specific recommendations on restaurants, bars, shopping, entertainment, or other activities to make your stay in Austin as enjoyable as possible.

Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

We live in the main house on the property, but keep somewhat erratic schedules. If you're staying and need anything, just let us know, and we can usually take care of it in short order.

We have 2 indoor/outdoor cats that live with us in the main house and in the yard. They're very friendly, but in the interest of any future guests with allergies (and much to their dismay) they're not allowed in the apartment, and aren't too keen on any new animals being around.

Also, Erin is a certified yoga instructor, and often teaches classes out of the house. In particular, there are usually classes around mid-day on Sunday, and other scattered throughout the week, all reasonably priced. If you are interested in joining a class, or arranging for a private class, just let us know. We even have several extra yoga mats available to borrow.

We're within walking distance of quite a good handful of excellent local restaurants, bars, and shops, and only a short distance away from downtown Austin, South Congress Street, South 1st Street, Zilker Park, and more. Just let us know, and we'd be happy to provide recommendations for anything you're looking for.

There are no laundry facilities in the apartment itself, but you can arrange with us to use the washer and dryer in the main house if needed. If you are staying for more than a couple days, we will arrange a time to wash and change linens and towels during your stay.

We park our cars in the garage, so it is not available for guest use without specific prior arrangement. You're free to pull your car into the driveway to load and unload and for short stops, but please keep your car(s) parked on the street most of the time. There is typically ample street parking available.

We're only about a 10 minute drive to downtown (~$15 by cab), and just around the corner from a couple city bus stops. There are also typically car2go cars available in the neighborhood, and Fare/Fasten/RideAustin rides are rarely more than 5-10 minutes away.

*** Note that entry is via spiral stairs, and one of the beds is in a loft reachable by ladder. This apartment is *not* well-suited for the mobility impaired.

Dan's place is in a great location and very clean. They were good communicators and had a great list of things to do in Austin put together in the unit. Very sweet cats!

Dan and Erin have a fantastic place in South Austin that's within walking distance of a bunch of cool areas, and just a short drive from downtown. The garage apartment was super cute and very clean and comfortable—perfect for my two friends and me! Our hosts were also extremely accommodating with our check-in and check-out times. We'd love to stay here again the next time we visit Austin!
