About this listing
Duarmance con la luz de la Luna
Go to sleep with the light of the moon and awaken to the changing sky in a Studio Apartment with your own private entrance... this space has an abundance of streaming light from the NorthWest, with a spacious bathroom of many, polished natural surfaces. The apartment adjoins an artist's home but is separate and private. There is an outdoor table with chairs where you can relax with the many shades of green and animal sounds of a private backyard. The street of the house is a short one, which at the North end meets Kinney Avenue and Barton Springs Rd with the local, well-known Juiceland, restaurant road and Zilker Park. At the South end of Kinney Ave meet Lamar Boulevard with an outgoing expansion of Austin eateries, food trailers & entrepreneurial-ism, all within walking distance.
One mile from swimming at Barton Springs Pool and 10 minutes to your seat at the Paramount Theatre--we like to say,
"We are 5 minutes from 'everything Austin' ..."
--one block off South Lamar, you can walk to most interests.
This studio is a private space that you control--come and go as you like--as it is the same as a hotel studio. We provide an immaculate space with every little thing you may need and we will help to guide you to what Austin has to offer, but we do not impose on you and we give you total privacy. After an initial intro to the space, you will only see us if you ask. We leave a written list of instructions for any questions you may have...
Great neighborhood and wonderful little studio to spend the night in. Very close to Barton Springs, Lady Bird Lake, and of course all the great restaurants and bars of South Lamar and South Congress. The Sun Room was so pleasant and the garden relaxing and quiet. Valentina was also very helpful and accommodating.
We had such a great time at the purple cave. It's close to lots of food and places to drink. There was fresh coffee every morning. It really made staying in Austin even better then it already is.
Had a WONDERFUL stay at Valentina's place. It is unique and totally AUSTIN. There is enough space for 2, and the bathroom is GREAT. I highly recommend staying here
The room was perfect and Valentina was charming! The location is great - we walked to dinner both nights and had great meals. I definitely recommend this room and would stay there again.
The sunroom is a fantastic place to stay if you're hoping to get up early with the sun. Which is perfect for maximizing sunlight for vacation activities. But, it can also be a double-edged sword if you're trying to sleep in. Even in the 100 degree weather the temperature is nice. At night it's a moon room! You can watch the moon drift across the night sky.
We only met Valentina's husband, Herb. He was very enthusiastic and told us all about the surrounding area. Although I've been to Austin several times, his recommendations were very influential to our visit. He even took us to a good place to park and walk to Zilker Park for an event. They were also very sensitive to our privacy.
One detail to note, and this is more of an AirBNB categorization thing, but this is somewhere in between an "entire apartment/house" and "private room". It's still connected to the house, but you don't need to walk through the house to get to it. It still works out great, but something you might consider if you're looking for that entire apartment feel.
Oh, and the bathroom is amazing. Also, the porch and garden area are amazing.
This was my second time staying at Valentina's and, once again, I felt right at home. I love the warm artistry of this immaculate creative space. Valentina is an exceptionally gracious host, readily available, but also respectful of one's privacy. I was so happy to be able to stay with Valentina and Herb again and look forward to seeing them in the future.
Everything was as advertised! Valentina and Herb were great hosts. They left us alone for the most part and were very friendly when called upon. They even provided purified water, tea, and french press coffee! The room, an old artist's studio, had a lot of character and unique features. The bathroom was impressive, it was almost as large as the living area! This was a very quiet neighborhood with a great central location with quick access to pretty much everything ATX has to offer. I would definitely consider staying here again and would likewise recommend staying here to any Airbnb user!
