The house is relatively new construction in an older, more established neighborhood. The entire upstairs of this large house was recently converted to its own three bedroom, two bath unit with separate entrance via spiral staircase. I live in the main house downstairs.

Each of the three upstairs bedrooms are available to rent via this listing.
Or, the entire three bedroom/two bath upstairs flat can be rented as a whole. It is listed separately on Airbnb--https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/958210

The house is located on a quiet street 1.5 miles from Downtown. It is even closer to East Sixth Street's bars/restaurants/food trucks. Lady Bird Lake and the 10 mile Hike and Bike trail that surrounds it is only two blocks away.

Regarding transportation, there are several bus lines within a few blocks. And there are Cars2Go frequently parked on my block waiting to be used.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Kate did me a favor, and booked my stay with less than 24 hours notice. It worked out great.

    I stayed mid-week, and the other rooms were empty. There was plenty of room for me and no issues with shared space. This place would be great for a group using all three bedrooms.

    Located on a nice street, pretty close to Rainey St nightlife and bars around East 6th st. Also close the river path if you want to jog or bike. I rented a bike from East Side Pedal Pushers, highly recommended.

  • Excellent place to stay. Very clean, safe, and comfortable! Would stay again definitely when in Austin. The location is also excellent relative to Austin. Had a great time at a great place.

  • I made a last minute booking with Kate and she responded to me within the hour, which I appreciated. It's a quiet location, very convenient to places on E. Cesar Chavez which is all I had time to explore. There are three upstairs rooms, each with individual locks, and a common area. I had one of the rooms but essentially had the floor to myself because no one else had booked another room that night. Kate keeps everything very clean and the bed was super comfortable. I'd definitely stay again.

  • Kate was incredibly accommodating despite my last-minute planning. She replied to my inquiry very quickly and was even generous enough to lend me a spare phone charger when I realized I'd forgotten mine. The location was very convenient, particularly if you want to check out the bars, restaurants and food carts of E 6th St. I would absolutely stay with Kate again.

  • A down home touch in a brand new remodel. Kate welcomed us with wine and a bunch of food. Practically a complete kitchen. Could walk to Town Lake and literally 8 minutes from major entertainment. Enjoyed chirping birds during the sunset hours. Very happy trip!!

  • Everything was lovely! Very clean and professional. We booked last minute and Kate was quick to reply and accommodate us. Location is nice, a short walk to the river or to the nightlife.

  • The private room was excellent - quiet, cozy, and with its own separate lock. I was the only renter there for the week. The location was perfect for my needs, just a quick bike ride to town.

    Kate set up the condo very thoughtfully, with everything I could ever need for the bathroom and kitchen. I was busy while in Austin and it was so nice to come back and watch TV and relax in my temporary home.

    I would definitely recommend to others!

  • The house is well-kept (meaning organized and in good shape) and it's IMMACULATE. Very clean , very comfortable, everything is where you'd expect it to be (ie: coffee, etc.) and she was nice enough to stock the fridge & leave fruit. The house is close enough to everything by car and we had no problem parking on the street. I would DEFINITELY recommend Kate's house, and would absolutely go back the next time I'm in Austin!

  • Had a great time during my stay. Perfect quiet location and really tidy and comfortable home. Would definitely come back and would've stayed longer had I been able to.

  • Kate's place was extremely welcoming, and my wife thought it was incredibly cute with some of the art she has on the walls. There was actually quite a bit of space, it was very clean and cozy, and in a nice and quiet neighborhood. It is literally only minutes from downtown as well. I would definitely recommend Kate's place for anyone looking for a place to stay in Austin.
