Thank you for considering this perfectly located pad to launch your Austin adventure! Separate entry, PRIVATE Master bdrm & bathroom is all yours!! Huge Cal King bed. Lakefront condo complex. Cont Breakfast, fridge. Bus, bike walk downtown.

The Space

So close to downtown & Soco! Walk, bike, or a couple minute drive downtown to ease logistics and time in traffic. Great for 2 guests. The master bedroom, full bath and walk-in closet totalling 240 sq feet (23 sq meters) has a private entrance totally separate from the rest of the home. The condo complex is next to the city park & on the water directly onto the hiking trails. The master bedroom has a 12' tall vaulted ceiling with ceiling fan. Relax into the huge California King bed, and also there is a second full size real bed available. Continental breakfast items with coffee and tea are furnished for you. Message me ahead and I can pre-shop for fruit or some items to have waiting for you in the fridge. We are a gated secure condo complex with covered carports for parking. Wifi "Ultimate" speed up to 50 mgb is ultra fast! A fridge and microwave are in the closet. There is a foldout table space for a desk work surface or for meals.

Our condo complex has a back lawn with a romantic skyline view of downtown. One block from a bar Draft Pick, restaurant Baby Acapulco's & a 7-11 convenience store. Emo's & Antone's live music venues are two blocks away along with a coffee shop BuzzMill.

There are lots of restaurants within walking distance. Kick back and relax on the dock while you take a break before more fun Austin festivities. The bus stop is one block away. Cab from the airport is 15 min -$15 and I am on the way in to downtown from the airport. Close walk to Rainey Street & East Side entertainment districts, or a longer walk down to South Congress district. There is tons of outdoor dining space at the tables by the pool. Grill out with the lakeside grill, picnic tables and chairs on the dock. Recycling & laundry facilites are on site. Paddleboards for rent next door for playing on the lake.

Launch to everywhere in central Austin from this perfect location!

  • We had a great time staying in Mateo's master suite. The room was spacious and clean, and Mateo was the perfect host. Most importantly, the location is excellent. Easy drive to downtown every morning if you have a job, and, if in Austin purely for entertainment, centrally located to see the many sites of Austin. Also, there are numerous restaurants / food trucks within walking distance for those times you just don't want to drive. Overall, great experience and would recommend staying at Mateo's with anyone.

    Come stay again anytime Seung Hee! I enjoyed hosting you for the 6+ weeks you were here. Safe travels!

  • Mateo is an extremely considerate and thoughtful host, down to the inclusion of every amenity a guest might need (bags of tea!). Mateo ensured that my partner and I had a wonderful stay, and communicated with us clearly every step of the way. I must add that the bed was among the most comfortable I have ever slept in -- it was distressing to return to my own. We will definitely be back!

  • Great place! Mateo has an awesome launchpad very centrally located close to all the downtown and soco action and plus you get to see Lake Austin's as his condo has a waterfront and pool! Will definitely stay here next time in Austin!!! Great host Mateo!

  • Extremely good value for money and a very convenient location! The gated parking was an excellent bonus for us. The place is very well looked after and is seems as if Mateo has thought of everything someone on their travels may need. HUGE beds, clean throughout, lots of little add ons (snacks, maps of area etc). We unfortunately did not get to meet Mateo but were able to access some of his recommendations on his profile. Would recommend!

  • Mateo really goes above and beyond for his guests needs. My mom and I spent 5 days at his place and were pleased to find extra little thoughtful details to make our stay as comfortable as possible-- even down to 2 sets of earplugs! :-) He was super responsive in getting back to any questions we had, and the room was just perfect for our time there in Austin. Wonderful choice! Oh yeah, and great location too...

    Response from Mateo:

    I am glad you enjoyed the stay and little details! Safe travels see you in NYC at your airbnb one day.

  • Nice place to stay. Mateo had snacks and breakfast foods stocked for us when we arrived. Close to major bus routes. A pleasant experience. I'm not sure where the picture with this listing cam from, as there were no water views from the unit. There was a lot of construction going on while we were there, so maybe we just couldn't access the area...

    Response from Mateo:

    Heather the weather was so rainy and wintery while you were here, you never checked out our beautiful private dock on lake! Our huge back lawn and lakeside dock is where the pics were taken by airbnb. Go past the pool by my front door and follow the trail to the lake next time we can watch the kayakers go by :)

  • Mateo's master suite was the perfect combo of location, privacy, and awesome vibes. Within a 30 minute walking radius you have access to downtown Austin, South Congress, Rainey street, and a whole lot more. There are two clusters of food trucks just around the corner a few min walking, try Cow Bells for the best burger of your life. The room itself has everything you need, and the bed is one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. You have plenty of privacy as the unit is entirely self contained, but Mateo is just "a couple doors down" if you need anything. Mateo is an awesome guy, super friendly, but also very respectful of your privacy. His attention to detail exceeds any other AirBnB host I've encountered, and it's obvious after getting to know him that it comes from a place of sincere care for others. You can't go wrong staying here.

  • Stay with Mateo! Don't even think twice! He was a great host! It was a great room (and if you're a female traveling alone, you have your own locked room which is great)! The place was clean, cozy, the bed was comfy and Mateo was warm, inviting, helpful, and a most gracious host! He's got a central location which made it easy to access a lot! Thanks Mateo...I'll be visiting you again soon!

    Alefiyah come stay again and tell your Chicago friends too! I so enjoyed meeting you. Enjoy your journey across the US. Thanks for the tip to add one more towel rack to make this place perfect. I always work to improve the guest experience. I am glad you saw our acro-yoga demo! Fun fun

  • Took a trip for a bachelorette party and had had the best stay! Was welcomed with a note to our group from the host, snacks, a mini fridge, a bathroom stocked with little shampoos and conditioner and he was available via text at any time during our stay! My girlfriends and I had an awesome stay and we would definitely stay again. I would recommend Mateo's pad to anyone.

    Response from Mateo:

    Thank you for choosing my place for the special event! Come stay again next time you visit Austin. May the bachelorette have many many years of happiness!

  • Staying at Mateo's launchpad was perfect. Even though we didn't have the chance to meet, he managed to give us a 5 stars experience during our stay. The room was super clean, kinda worried we couldn't clean as good,lol. Our privacy was well respected,quiet place, and he thought of every single details. Coffee maker,(lots and lots of) towels,shower kit, snacks, a shopping bag (useful since most stores don't give away plastic bags no more in Austin ), microwave, fridge, etc. My favorite was the Austin map with the metro bus schedule in it. It really helped a lot.
    O ya, the river was great... Took some nice pictures down there.
