Austin Studio Rental Photos and Description
Meticulous & spacious studio! Polished concrete floors, king + full bed, wi-fi.
Nestled in the heart of central Austin, our modern guest studio will provide the perfect location for all of your Austin activities. This luxurious retreat has been fully-updated with style, function and comfort in mind.
Located right off Lamar, you are less than a mile from Austin's best grocery stores in each direction (Whole Foods and Central Market), walking distance to the University of Texas and 1.5 miles from downtown. You will be across the street from Austin's legendary Caswell Tennis Courts and across the street from Pease Park where you will find the Shoal Creek hike and bike trail leading to Lake Ladybird.
It's a marriage between a luxury hotel room and your home! Everything in this studio was custom built and furnished with personal attention to each detail. You will enjoy amenities such as high speed wireless Internet, a large flat-screen TV with Blue Ray DVD player and Bose surround sound speakers, designer lighting throughout with lots of niches and stained tortoise concrete floors. You will find our studio clean and well-appointed. We like to think of it as simple, uncluttered, modern luxury.
While we don't boast a full-sized kitchen, we are up to the challenge of cooking nearly anything you might need in this fully-appointed kitchenette. We have a coffee pot, a toaster/toaster oven combo, a large electric pot, an electric water kettle, convection oven/microwave combo, electric hot pot with saute pan and pot, an immersion blender and of course all the basic dishes and utensils you would need to prepare and serve a meal. There is a full size fridge/freezer.
We have a guest book waiting for you with all our favorite restaurant menus to help you decide whether you want to pick up a few things at Whole Foods or Central Market (both nearby) or sample some of Austin's amazing locally-owned restaurants. Our guides will also help you find a place nearby to sip late night coffee, go for a morning jog, get some delicious ice cream, play tennis, swim, meet friends for live music, go for a drive in the hill country, enjoy the lake, see some historic Austin sites, and much more. There is a bus stop about 1 minute walking distance from the house. A walk to UT and the drag takes about 10 minutes. Head straight down Lamar for a couple of miles and you will hit 6th Street. A cab is a great way to get to and from downtown for a few dollars.

Meredith purchased this studio in 2005
Why Meredith chose Austin
You will never find a property this unique. It has a storied past as a home built for a Texas legislator's mistress, turned into a preschool for 50 years, and now our funky 'estate.' Be sure to ask about the paddle we found in the backyard!
What makes this studio unique
We are very centrally located, yet are in a calm neighborhood setting. Ann Richards used to live down the street!
We also have tons of trees, so you'll hear birdies chirping, see squirrels burying their nuts and occasionally see a fox or a opossum running by with some babies.
Since we are directly across the street from one of Austin's great public tennis courts, I like to imagine we are living at our own private country club. :)
