Why Jim and Heather Reed chose Austin

French Place neighborhood is a quiet neighborhood with large beautiful pecan and oak trees, tucked away just northeast of University of Texas Campus, We are only a few miles from downtown. So you can enjoy the vibrant energy of the city, but have a restful place to return to (late) in the evening.

What makes this studio unique

This is a stand alone building, no shared walls. And it is at the back of the property, away from street noise. The studio has a full kitchen, full bath, and washer/dryer. The private backyard is beautifully landscaped and shaded by a large pecan tree.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We booked Jim & Heather's studio while waiting for our own house in Austin to be built. As you can see from the photographs, the studio might not appear to be big on square footage inside, but it's a very flexible space and functions like a much larger apartment. As we were staying for several months, having a washer and dryer was a real bonus, and even in mid-summer, it was great to have the outdoor seating area to kick back and sit in the shade. The kitchen is fully equipped and arranged so you can actually use it, which is very rare in all the rentals we stayed in! This helped us save money on food bills, and made us feel more at home.

The TV and WiFi was a very welcome feature - we had some hot summer months and needed to spend our time indoors, and being connected and entertained was a huge help.

The real gem of this rental is Jim & Heather. They really seem to enjoy having new neighbors to get to know, and as we were new transplants to Austin they did everything they could to make us feel at home in our new city. Jim was incredibly helpful and addressed any queries/issues about the studio that cropped up right away and takes great pride in maintaining the property in general. We got fantastic advice of where to eat and listen to live music, and felt we were considered real neighbors during our stay. I can't recommend this rental more (they only give me five stars to use!!) - particularly for long-stay rental and if you're new to town. You'll be in great hands.

very nice cottage in Austin

  • 5 of 5
The place was as advertised, a very comfortable studio in a pleasant and convenient neighborhood in Austin. The owner was terrific - extremely helpful and friendly, and made a number of great suggestions about restaurants, music, etc. The kitchen is very well equipped too. I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in town, and I would strongly recommend it too.

PERFECT!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this place for my brother and sister-in-law when they came to town in July. I wish they could stay with me but my pets make that difficult for my sister-in-law. I had heard of this place from a friend of mine who LOVED it for her parents when they came for a visit. I live in the neighborhood and really enjoy sharing the area with friends and family that visit. Being that I live near here, I can say that this neighborhood is PERFECT for a real taste of Austin. Coffee shops in close walking distance and super easy bus routes to everything else in town!! You're not far from a lovely walking/running trail in Mueller either. LOCATION HERE IS AMAZING!!!

The actual place is just lovely. Roomy enough with all that you could possibly need. Its decorated simply but with a lot of thought. I was a little sad to have rented for someone else to stay in. My brother and sister-in-law were so happy and can't wait to come back.

The ONLY thing I would make sure to let people know about - THIS IS IN NO WAY to deter anyone - this place is the back cottage to a house. I actually liked that about it. Seemed more homey, a bit safer, and like you are really IN Austin not just staying in some dumb cheap hotel. If I was renting this for the first time and just driving up I may have felt a little awkward with it being in the back and down the driveway but this is truly an absolute gem of a find!!

Car: not necessary

French Place is a region of Austin in Cherrywood Neighborhood Association, just northeast of University of Texas, due east from Hyde Park Neighborhood and south of the new Mueller Neighborhood development. This is a very quiet and safe neighborhood with amazing restaurants, theaters, coffee shops, and parks along our perimeter. Also, we are only a few miles from downtown, an easy bike ride or bus ride away.

Our studio is a stand alone building, no shared walls, so you have complete privacy. And since it it located in the back yard, you have complete silence from road noise as well.
