About this listing
If your looking for a great place to enjoy and explore the best of Austin then this is your kind of place. A great location combined with a quiet and peaceful setting makes ours the perfect choice.
Our place is located in a quiet neighborhood yet still only a 5 minute walk to Jo's Coffee and Tom's Shoes & Coffee on S. Congress, music venues and restaurants. Catch a bus downtown or rent some bikes for freedom to come and go as you please (great way to get to ACL Fest). Newly renovated, fully appointed residential condo for a weekend or longer. Relax by the swimming pool or take a walk in the nearby park or on the Hike and Bike Trail along the lake.
As we say in our neighborhood, "Stay in 78704, anything north of the river is just south Dallas"
We have plenty of suggestions and recommendations for eating, shopping, entertainment. We love Austin and know how to enjoy it. And we'll tell you what to avoid too!
6 blocks to the nearest bus stop on S. Congress or use a Car 2 Go for just a few dollars more. If you've got your own wheels we have plenty of free parking
Did I say it's quiet? You'll get a lot of peace and quiet for a great nights sleep, even if you sleep til noon.
Swimming pool, park with walking/running trail, walking distance to great restaurants and entertainment.

Our dog lives here and will go with us when you arrive but there are no dog smells or other dog related problems so we want to keep it that way. No pets allowed, sorry. And no smoking.
I really enjoyed my stay here. The apartment was very clean, organized and had everything I needed. Terry and Jill were very welcoming and left me a lovely basket of snacks (and awesome Tom's coffee!)
The neighborhood is quiet - close to the shops on South Congress, and located on the Blunn Creek Greenbelt - a trail between Little Stacy park and Big Stacy pool. it's a nice place for a run.
This was a perfect place to spend the week in an otherwise hectic SXSW!
Terry was a perfect host and very responsive to any questions I had. The apartment was very well kept and clean- and bed was extremely comfortable. The location of the apartment was absolutely perfect- a walkable disrance to South Congree, and easy commute to downtown. Amazing experience for my first time using airbnb.
Terry made us feel extremely welcome! The check in was easy and the house was great! Very clean, with everything you'd need and in a great area. It was a quick walk to South Congress and we were able to just hop on the bus to get anywhere else we needed to go. I would absolutely stay here again!
Terry was a fantastic host. He was easy to get ahold of and quick to repond to any questions we had before and during our stay. He was friendly and welcoming when we arrived which made us feel right at home! His apartment is super cozy with a great Austin vibe :) Pros: clean, spacious, great location, Terry even provided milk, OJ, coffee, tea and chips and salsa for our stay! Cons: the bed was firm. So we slept - but not too comfortably. But hey, that's a personal preference.
Overall - Terry's space perfect for our weekend in Austin. We would definitely recommend. Thanks for the hospitality and great stay, Terry!
Terry's condo is in an unbelievable location. You are blocks from South Congress which is the epicenter of awesome Austin. I was in town for SXSW and walked to the event every day. I easily could have taken the bus each day but the weather was great. The condo is perfect for a couple and is very well taken care of. Terry picked me up from the airport and got me settled in. I really couldn't have asked for a better AirBnB experience. Thanks Terry!
These wonderful hosts greeted us with warm smiles and local treats. The apartment was very clean, cozy and creatively furnished with neat art. Appreciated the nice small complex and clean pool to relax beside. This is an excellent location right alongside a park and just a few blocks from South Congress. Couldn't have asked for a better, cozy place to stay for the two of us. Highly recommended!
About the Host, Terry
Hello, I am a chiropractor and 3 years ago moved to Austin, Texas to hear great music and access outdoor adventures. My wife and I love traveling to Australia, Italy, Mexico, Canada and the wild and scenic places in the USA. My web site is wildernessdance and ends with a co not com.
During September 2014 Jill and I did a pilgrimage through the Alps and Dolomites. We walked from Innsbruck, Austria to Ravenna, Italy almost 300 miles. We accompanied a friend who started walking in Hamburg, Germany on the Via Romea and finished in Rome. Pictures and stories are available at frisbiepilgrims.wordpress. It was an awesome adventure.
