About this listing

Looking for an affordable way to enjoy an extended stay in Austin without living in your car? This friendly flat is fully furnished, functional and fun for far less than freviously fought fossible. :/ Onward: thru the fog!

The space

This is a subsection of my house that is completely independent with a full bedroom, full bathroom and mini-kitchen/living/dining room. You have your own balcony/deck, entrance and climate controls. The whole space is 300sqft but very functional and includes a queen-size bed.

The location is extremely convenient being in 78704 just off the South Congress (SoCo) strip where you'll find all sorts of food, drinks, music, shopping and people watching. If you're more into the mother natures there is a university at the end of the block with plenty of outdoor space, a running track and views of the city... there is also a nature preserve in the neighborhood and a great park with a free public pool just down the street. A 24 hour grocery store and 4+ bank ATMs are all a block away as well as the main bus line, Car2Go, taxis, bike share and safe biking routes.

This space is great for a visit to austin or a transitional space for a month or more. It's fully furnished so you only need to bring some clothes and toys. Depending on the situation, I have a bike or two I can lend you to get around as that's how I travel around Austin 90% of the time and highly encourage you to indulge in this activity.

Guest access

Private balcony with table and chairs, gas grill and front porch. There is a laundromat just across the street next to the 24 hour grocery store and a bunch of banks, knock out all your errands at once!

Interaction with guests

I can answer your questions about Austin, I've been here since 2000 and put lots of time into tracking down fun activities, good food and nice people.

Other things to note

The mandatory 15% city hotel tax is included in the price for all reservations under 30 days.

Garret's place is in a great location and he is a wonderful host. It's a short walk to South Congress and he is full of great local tips. We stayed a month here and would highly recommend the tree house.

I never saw Garret. This means he is super efficient in making check in and check out as DIY as possible, which is great. House is clean, no luxury, and there is a grocery store nearby. Getting downtown by bus was easy. It is not close to the busiest parts of SoCo, but is super silent. Two things could have been better: a blackout curtain in the bedroom, and if the bikes were ready to use. It was super rainy, so they were wet. But, I mean, this would just be a plus, the stay, in general, was satisfying.

If you're looking to explore Austin and stay in South Congress without breaking the bank, stay here! It's a quick walk to all of the shops and restaurants that South Congress is known for, and it's a pretty quick ride to all of the major attractions the city has to offer. The apartment is very comfortable and clean and perfect if you're looking to spend the entire day out exploring the city, like we were. Garret was an amazing host. He made himself super available and was quick to respond with any question we had. He even sent us a doc full of info from check in/check out to best attractions and food, which we referred to every time we got hungry. 10/10. Would recommend to a friend. Would stay again. Thanks again, Garret!

Garret's place is funky fun in a great area, just off S. Congress, about 2 miles south of downtown. Lots of restaurants, shops, and bars within easy walking distance. The apartment is small and private, with lots of nice little personal features.

Great location and a true Austin experience. Be sure to walk down to the Continental Club and see a show.

The location is great!! The apartment really is a cozy little treehouse. Highly recommend for a weekend or extended weekend stay. My only concern was the walls are very thin and you can hear your neighbors; I stayed for two months for work and needed more privacy. Would stay here again for a shorter trip!

I stayed at Garret's treehouse apartment the weekend of ACL, and had a wonderful time! The apartment was exactly what he described, very quaint and comfortable, and perfectly suited our needs. The location was convenient to all that we planned to see while in Austin, and we appreciated Garret's suggestions of places to go in Austin. Thank you for being a great host Garret!

I'm a pretty laid back guy who likes to spend time outdoors so if you'd like to stay at my place then i'll just go camping - it works out for everyone! :)
