The Owner purchased this studio in 2005

I own several properties in central Austin and love this one for several reasons. Unlike many central Austin areas, this neighborhood is exceptionally quiet and safe with virtually no night time commercial activity nor gigantic apartment / condo buildings. Having spent two years in Europe I learned what makes a hotel stay luxurious without being expensive. Central location and deluxe linens combined with good design and quality materials always mattered more than square footage, so this studio was an obvious fit for my offerings. I also own and operate VRBO listing #293015, the stone cottage that sits entirely seperated from but at the front of the piece of land that houses the studio. Additionally I own and operate long-term rentals in Hyde Park, another Austin neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places. I hope you'll enjoy this garden studio as much as I think you will.

Located in the coveted, quiet and safe Brykerwoods/Old West Austin area, this charming studio puts the best of Austin at your fingertips. In 2007, the American Planning Association selected the Old West Austin Historic District as one of the ten greatest neighborhoods in the United States.

The particularly beautiful Pease Park or Town Lake Hike and Bike trail are accessible on foot.

Driving or biking it's 5-10 minutes to UT, downtown, Austin's most popular parks for hiking and biking, the flagship Whole Foods Market or Central Market, the Texas capitol, museums, shopping boutiques, music venues, local eateries, taverns.

Day trips may include visits to exceptional caves and water holes, The Alamo, and world-renowned central Texas BBQ joints.

COZY AND PEACEFUL STUDIO IN GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the garden studio for 2+ months during our relocation to Austin, TX. While we had some initial concerns about the size of the studio coupled to our length of stay, it ended up being a charming alternative to the bland, high-priced extended stay hotels and furnished corporate apartments.

The location of the studio couldn't be better. It is in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood but still close to it all, including our favorites Kerbey Lane Cafe and Anderson's Coffee. The studio itself is tastefully decorated and has all the amenities of home including a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable bedding, and plush towels. Finally Dierdre is an excellent host, always friendly and ready to help and accommodate. Our stay has been lovely and we'll miss it when we move along.

TERRIFIC EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
I've had an incredibly pleasant experience while renting this cozy place. It was very close to various great restaurants and it was located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood, yet very close to downtown. The owner provided great customer service while being available any time of the day for any possible issues. Her communication skills and enthusiastic personality made every interaction very pleasant. I would definitely recommend this studio to friends or relatives.

The property is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood with easy access to Loop 1 and I-35. It is clean and has all the amenities one would need for a comfortable stay.

I spent a quick 2 nights here. It was exactly as billed - centrally located, quiet, comfortable, cosy. What was particularly helpful was Deirdre herself - she's excellent with replying quickly & staying in touch as you need. You feel like you are in good hands. Internet worked great, AC was super, quiet little spot outside for the morning coffee. I'd stay again.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
I have used VRBO rentals from coast to coast. For the price, furnishings, and the proximity
to all that Austin has to offer-----you absolutely cannot go wrong with this property. It is
tucked away in a very quiet neighborhood where you can arrive at night after experiencing
Austin and have no problem getting a good night's rest so you can do it again the following day.
My only problem was I did not have enough days on my jaunt to enjoy more of Austin.
Take great care Dierdre and I shall return!!

Oh----and six stars in the review for the proprietor!!!!

RELAXING GET-AWAY

  • 4 of 5
A nice place to stay away from the maddening crowd..situated in a very pretty yet interesting residential neighborhood. Very clean, very private, very reasonably priced for Austin, The space is more than adequate for 2 and was much nicer than expected from photos. Be aware that the owner accepts checks but not credit cards though.
