The Space

I've got a bedroom in an one bedroom apartment that is 0.8 miles away from the bars on West 6th Street and 1.3 miles away from Downtown (measured by the capitol). Whole Foods as well as great food and shopping 5 minutes away. It's about a mile away from Zilker Park, and less than a mile away from Town Lake. In short, it's within perfect walking distance from anything you'd like to do while in Austin, but just far enough away from the crazy when you want to be!

I will be staying in the apartment as well, but you have sole access to the bedroom you are renting.

The neighborhood is extremely safe and the apartment complex is extremely small. Everyone kind of knows each other and gets along. Think Melrose place. :)

I have a dog who does love to cuddle. You will have free reign to use the kitchen and restroom.

  • Margaret is a great host! For a first time Austin visitor this is the perfect place to stay for the price. Her place is right next to a 24 hour diner that serves really good food (excellent call on their bourbon chicken and waffles), probably the biggest Whole Foods in the nation, parks, and within walking distance to just about anything around the urban Austin area. I would def recommend this place for anyone coming into town. Thanks so much Margaret!!

  • My second stay with Margaret was excellent! She is so nice and helpful and can answer any questions that you may have about Austin. The location is perfect. Right by the Whole Foods Flagship, Waterloo Records and Amy's ice cream... It's an easy walk downtown as well. I will stay with Margaret on my next visit for sure.

  • Margaret was a great hostess, and gave me the inside scoop on all the Austin hot spots. Her apartment was in a great location and her dog is the coldest puppy on the world. Thanks Margaret. See you next time:)

  • This was my first AirBnB experience, and it convinced me to make AirBnB my default first stop when traveling. Great location, right by whole foods. Very comfortable with easy to use A/C (important in Austin!). Margaret was so kind and even left me an umbrella to use during an uncharacteristically strong rain storm. Her dog is very cute, too.

  • I stayed with Margaret for a long weekend in Austin at the end of September. She was very kind and helpful with the questions that I had. She even offered me tomatoes that she has left over from a work event :-). Her apartment is very clean and in a great location close to downtown. The Whole Foods Flagship store and Waterloo Records are blocks away. I would recommend Margaret's place and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

  • Margaret was a gracious host. Check-in and Check-out were hassle free. The living arrangements were without problems. She was nice enough to drive me to downtown when my taxi didn't show up. If you need a place to stay in Austin, I highly recommend her place.

  • This was my first visit to Austin and I thought that Margaret's apartment was in an awesome location.

    I did not have a car or bike and was able to walk to many of the locations I wanted to see. There is a whole foods right around the corner from her apartment. The bars on 6th are definitely a must see and I was able to walk there and back.

    Margaret's apartment was comfortable, clean, and in a safe neighborhood. She's a great host and I'd highly recommend staying at her place!

  • Margaret's apartment was perfect.

    If you're looking for a clean, organized room to stay for a couple of nights, then this place comes recommended. I was looking for a place last minute and was really looking for a place to crash. The location of the apartment is only a few blocks from 6th St, Whole Foods HQ, and some great restaurants/bars etc!

  • Margaret was my first AirBnB host and she's been absolutely wonderful. She came from work to meet me at her apartment when I arrived, showed me everything and was just really kind, easy to talk with and helpful. Her apartment is really nice and in a great location. My favorite part was Solar, her dog. Would have loved to take him with me on my travels... ;)

  • Margaret was a great host.

    She was super welcoming. We chatted for quite some time when I arrived and she offered me help in finding the right places. Her place was great as well. It was in a calm area but close to 6th street. The flat was cleaned up and Margaret provided towels and offered me to make use of her fridge with all the insides..

    She got a dog that is really lovely. I went out for a walk with him twice. It is so much fun playing with him.

    I really enjoyed my stay there and can only recommend everybody visiting Austin to consider her as a host.

    Thanks Margaret
