Austin Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio in the Trees

Visit our lush, peaceful family compound and relax in your own deluxe 'treehouse' situated in a 300 year-old Live Oak. Enjoy the use of a funky-elegant back yard, a courtyard filled with sweet dogs, flowers and a fountain, and your own private outdoor space. House-call yoga and massage are but a phone call away. The Compound is blocks away from Austin's best restaurants and its largest concentration of Tex-Mex and interior Mexican eateries. Come for South by Southwest and ACL music festivals (rates increase but it's still a deal), Formula One, UT games, or just to sample this delightful city from a premiere location. It's a magical place to stay. Many satisfied customers, all of whom - we're proud to say - have become friends. PLEASE NOTE: The VRBO calendar is notoriously unreliable and I don't use it generally; please contact me for availability.

Cute place, but not exactly luxury

  • 3 of 5
My fiance and I booked this place for four nights this past weekend, and we had very high hopes based on past reviews. First off, if you do not absolutely LOVE dogs, go ahead and pass on this place. There are three big, very enthusiastic dogs that you must interact with to even get to the front door of the tree house. There's also dog poop all over the yard you have to walk through, so watch out for that. Also, you can hear the dogs barking all night, and they seem to bark at the drop of a hat. Second, the treehouse wasn't exactly spotless. Nothing absolutely disgusting, but there was a significant amount of dust and it was just generally "lived-in" looking. The shower wasn't especially clean, and the shower curtain liner should probably be replaced. Third, the bedding was questionably clean and the pillows, sheets, and towels all smelled like mildew. Teresa was very nice and the place is overall pretty cute, but I can't recommend it wholeheartedly, and the price seems a little ambitious for what you get. Especially if you're not a dog person.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry to hear this. All my guests have been dog lovers to my knowledge. Even so, I live here too and don't care to be awakened by barking and am very proactive when I hear it going on. As for the "dog poop all over the yard" I am very vigilant about that too. One of my dogs is very old and unpredictable in her hygiene; perhaps this is what is being referred to. As for the "lived-in" comment, I'm really at a loss. I'll certainly have a talk with my cleaning service. Again, I'm very sorry these nice people were disappointed, but I like to think my reviews speak for themselves.

A very relaxing place!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Teresa's for 4 nights over the 4th of July weekend and we had a fabulous time! The place is clean and very peaceful. Teresa was very accommodating and she made sure to have cream for my coffee. She also supplied the refrigerator with beer and we sure appreciated that. We will be going there often.

This treehouse is actually a perfect retreat in the middle of the best neighborhood in Austin. You can walk to South Congress in 3-5 minutes. Walk to Polvo's for the best Mexican food around. Walk to the river, grab one of the bikes and go to Barton Springs, it's close to everything. Teresa stocks the fridge with great beer, cold water, and she makes the most awesome breakfasts you can imagine. The front porch and back patio and the dogs all await. It's an oasis. If you go to Austin absolutely stay here!

Romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful time while staying here. Teresa is very kind and generous in offering her home for people to stay. The room was so nice and cozy! It was even more fun when the dogs came up to visit us and napped on the floor while we lazied around-felt just like home! Everything within walking distance-eating, shopping and we even walked to the Congress St. bridge to watch the bats! Highly recommended!! Thanks for a wonderful time, Teresa!

Regular visitors to South Austin, we had yet another wonderful and unique trip. Teresa is a great hostess and has created a lovely get-away spot that feels personal - it's warm and cozy with lots of sunlight and fresh air! Location is fabulous - within walking or biking distance to everything you could want on 1st, South Congress, and everything in between! And listen to her recs on food and drink - while we frequented old faves (Home Slice, Jo's, and Enoteca's), we discovered some new ones (Bouldin Creek & Magnolia Cafes), too!

Absolutely Magical. I couldn't have asked for more!

Magical is obviously not a word I would use in my everyday vocabulary, but it is the only word I can possibly think of that would describe my experience in the treehouse. I have been coming to Austin for years as it is my favorite city in Texas...maybe even the US. This home is the epitome of everything Austin stands for. It combines luxury, friendly neighbors, sweet animals, colorful landscaping, abstract art, charm and surprises around every corner.

I recently relocated from Dallas, Texas and stayed with Teresa while looking for my Austin home. She made my experience stress-free, and peaceful not only with her accommodations, but her friendly candor and warm persona.

My family is all still living in Dallas, but they plan to visit often. Believe me when I tell you... they will stay nowhere else! I cant wait to give them a glimpse of the charm Austin perspires, and the treehouse is the PERFECT place to soak it all in!
