About this listing
Located in a trendy, central neighborhood north of campus. Near restaurants, bars & a mile from the new Mueller development. You have access to TV / Netflix & speedy Wifi, awesome kitchen for cooking, and a comfortable (new) memory foam mattress.
Quiet and spacious 1BR with new memory foam queen bed, puffy leather couch, full kitchen and shower with good water pressure. The apartment also includes free high speed wifi and a 38 inch HDTV with an Xbox that has Amazon Instant, Netflix, etc. (Sorry, no cable).
This is a convenient location just off of Airport Blvd and I-35, 10 min from the airport. For easy car-free access to downtown, the apartment is 2 blocks from a bus stop and 5 min from two Metrorail stations. By car most things are easily accessible.
In the area, the apartment is close to a giant HEB grocery store. Nearby: a great cult video place (I Luv Video), the comedy club Coldtowne Theater and great restaurants Omelettry, Kome (Sushi), Tyson's Tacos, House Pizzeria, and just a block from In 'N Out Burger.
The apartment is in a very safe, gated complex with free parking and a laundry room.
No smoking, no pets. Parties are not recommended since I have a neighbour who is quick to call the cops for noise complaints.
Access to entire apartment, free parking in lot, and laundry facilities. We also own several movies in our Amazon Video Library, which you are welcome to via the Xbox.
Interaction with Guests
We limit our interaction with guests to imperative questions or guidance during your stay. We will not be there or talk to you unless you need us!
Ridgetop / Hyde Park is a great area, with tons of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and grocery stores. It's also very close to the brand new Mueller development, which includes a Sunday farmer's market.
Our neighborhood is mostly a driving neighborhood, but Ridgetop / Highland is quite walkable in some areas. It's also very bicycle-friendly, as long as you avoid riding right on Airport Blvd or by the highway.
For public transit, see the Austin transit site for MetroBus, MetroRapid, and MetroRail schedules. (website hidden) For options to go out sans vehicle, on weekends, we suggest Uber-ing to Highland Mall (1.5 miles away), take the MetroRail right downtown or to the east side at Plaza Saltillo. These run just past midnight, and are very fast and easy. Or just Uber to downtown for about $10 each way.
Other Things to Note
The neighborhood is VERY safe, but late at night it might not be the greatest place to walk alone. We are close to a highway and a major road (Airport Blvd)., and about 7 minutes driving to downtown Austin or East Austin. The apartment itself is on a quiet street, about a block from the In-N-Out Burger.
No smoking, no pets. Parties are not recommended as my neighbors are quick to call cops with noise complaints.
All we ask is that you leave us with an original Shakespeare magnet poem on the fridge, feel free to scramble whatever is already there!
From Dec 01, 2015 - Feb 28, 2016 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
