Interaction with Guests
I know most of my neighbors on a first name basis. They're all in their late 20s-early 30s.
Very safe spot, though at SXSW or ACL, it probably won't be the quietest. A couple of burger joint a stone's throw away (literally). South Congress and South First are ground zero for cool in Austin right now, and South Lamar is less than a mile to the west. Zilker is an 18 minute walk just down Barton Springs road.
There are 3 bus stops within a 3 minute walk. OR you can walk downtown in 10.
—I have a cat (though neither of us will be there) so if anyone is allergic, it's probably not the place for you.
—Because it's an apartment, it's expected that guests remain fairly quiet and courteous to my neighbors.
—No smoking. However, there is a community patio out my back door if you'd like to.
Queen sized bed. 5'x5' walk-in closet will be available to use. Cat, guitar and amp will not, however.
