Howdy Y'all!

Welcome to the Sweet Little Suite!

This place is adorable and artsy, clean as can be, full of good vibes, and in an AMAZING downtown waterfront location.

You'll be walking to SoCo in 10 shady minutes and saying, 'Daaaaaang, that was a nice walk.'

Then you'll be eating Homeslice pizza and saying, 'Daaaaaang. That's some good pizza right there.'

Check out the photos and see what you think. If you have any questions, just send me an email.

Thank you!

Guestbook comments from the owner
I can tell you that you will be so happy to stay at Emily's home. It is lovely, clean, no bugs or roaches, far from it. You will feel like you are living in a catalog! Its wonderfully decorated, colorful, and neat as a pin. She has lovely artwork and furnishings and the whole home feels loved and cared for. Its really a special place to be and you will feel your spirits lift just being there.



The location is excellent, right on Lady Bird Lake, we swam there one day, and its very close to extraordinary cycling trails.



Also very close to South Congress and super shops and food..........Homeslice..........Gueros..............Parts and Labour...........Jo's coffee............and the Congress bridge, where we saw the bats come out at dusk. Very unique experience!.



We felt entirely safe in and out of the apartment. Its a condo community and everyone is friendly and knows each other. It is gated and in a safe area of town too.



Emily was very easy to work with logistically. We sent a deposit through paypal which she refunded at the end. She does a really kind job of stocking the fridge for you and just asks for reimbursement for what it costs, not profiting on that. She just met us, and walked us through and gave us the keys and then she was off with her pal Benny the Australian Shepherd!



You will be super happy you stayed in Emily Kate Moon's 7 star personal hotel!

CHARMING

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this adorable suite over Memorial Day weekend. The place was super clean, super cute, and just plain super! We enjoyed the balcony with its comfy chairs, and the beauty of the surroundings. The bed and towels were some of the most comfortable I've experienced. We did not have a car, and we were able to walk everywhere...SOCO, downtown, East Austin, etc. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.

This place had everything you need. Fluffy white towels in the bathroom, cozy bathrobe, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable patio with patio swing to enjoy a glass of wine and get caught up with girlfriends! This unit is extremely clean and the owner was very accommodating, available for questions and helpful with maps and suggestions where to go. Location is PRIME! We rented a car but really did not need to because it is walking distance to the new, hip SOCO area as well as downtown Austin. The beds were heavenly and the artwork was mezmerizing. This place is beyond charming. We truly felt as though we were staying at the home of a good friend.

WONDERFUL CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful condo. The moment you enter it's an oasis from the outside world. Bright, sunny, and cheerful are the words that immediately come to mind. My husband and I were fortunate to stay here during the Formula 1 Race. Prime location with easy access to restaurants, shops, downtown and the Interstate. We enjoyed going to the Lady Bird Lake and the view of Austin. Emily is great to work with and a gracious host. The bed is the best we've ever slept in. Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

LITTLE GEM IN AUSTIN -- AN OASIS OF ZEN DOWNTOWN

  • 5 of 5
I only stayed here for a short week and it was way too shot because this place was amazing. Once you step inside this colorful condo, the outside world simply ceases to exist. Still, South Congress is just a few minutes away and all the buzz of 6th is a short bus ride from there.

The owner is an artist and decorated and designed the condo herself and that gives the place a great personal and positive vibe.

I absolutely loved the huge bed. It was so comfy and I just didn't want to get up! But my favorite thing about the place was the balcony. The lights, candles the chairs, the swing. I spend a lot of time out there; just reading, listening to music or simply enjoying the peace and quiet with a glass of wine or one of the Belgian beers the owner kindly left in the fridge for her guests.

Thank you Emily, you're condo is the best!

WOW, WHAT A GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this great condo for a weekend getaway. Emily was there to greet us when we arrived and was a great host. The condo is perfect in every way. Very clean, comfortable and perfect location. Easy 10 min. walk to all things to do in downtown and soco. We will always stay here for our next trips to Austin, for sure!

The condo is in downtown Austin but feels like a woodsy private retreat. The location couldn't be better. It is smack-dab in the middle of the city, between SoCo and 6th Street -- Austin's two most popular bar and restaurant districts. It is on Lady Bird Lake, on the hike and bike trail, and within walking distance to several parks, the capitol building, convention center, art museums, SXSW festival, ACL festival, Barton Springs pool, mini golf, and many bars and restaurants. The university is about 20 blocks away.

Something you don't want to miss: in just ten minutes, you can walk to see the famous 1.5 million bats that fly from beneath the Congress Avenue Bridge every evening at sunset! Amazing!
