Overview

Austin Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Come stay on our urban 'ranchette' in the heart of the city! Look out the window and see our three Arabian ponies grazing peacefully, oblivious to the hustle and flow of city life. Hang out on our second story deck, nestled amongst the 300 year old live oaks, and sip margaritas. Party on Sixth Street or in the Warehouse District, shop Soco, attend Austin City Limits Festival, SXSW or Formula 1, sample all the wonderful cultural delights that make Austin one of the coolest, hippest cities in the world, then come home to our little 'oasis', kick back, relax and recharge your batteries so you can enjoy all that Austin has to offer. 7 acres, nestled into the countryside, the kind of place you might drive past and never see. 'Oasis' is the word our friends use the most when describing the unique property we call 'home'. So come and stay at our oasis and replenish yourself while having the time of your life in the city so many have grown to love, the city we are fortunate enough to call home, Austin. The property is only 8 miles from the heart of the city and 10 miles from the Austin Bergstrom Airport.

Our treehouse apartment is as unique and cool as Austin. Lovingly rebuilt and renovated by the owners, this little cottage retreat is as hip as Austin, and has as much personality. Small yet functional, close to the city yet quiet and secluded. Tastefully furnished with great attention to detail. Comfortable top quality queen bed, memory foam topper, down comforter, Egyptian cotton percale sheets, hypo-allergenic pillows and other bedding. Massive 9' glass doors look out into the live oaks and open onto the beautiful deck in the trees. Screen doors open up to let in the breeze on a spring or fall day, whisper-quiet central heat and a/c keep you comfortable on days the weather's not so accomodating.

Granite countertops in the beautiful, modern kitchen provide the work space for you to prepare meals should you decide to eat in. All dishes and utensils are provided and the kitchen is fully functional and stocked with built in microwave, stainless appliances, full size stove and fridge, complete with ice maker. And clean up is easy with the under counter sink and top of the line faucet. Everything you need is right there. Fresh coffee beans and an assortment of tea are also provided.

If you're going out on the town, take a quick shower and dry off with our large, luxurious towels. Our bathroom is fully equipped and as tastefully done as any in a luxury hotel. Soothing colors, travertine tile counters, the very best fixtures. Comes complete with all the necessities and conveniences of home. Or if you're staying in, take a long soak in our full-size tub before sipping a glass of wine amongst the live oaks on the private deck. Whatever you choose. Just remember, it's all about you.

Now, in the interest of full disclosure, we want to tell you a little more about our property. The last thing we would want is for you to be unpleasantly surprised by any part of your stay with us.

Our property is located approximately 8 miles from the State Capitol Building which is at the center of downtown Austin. While we are located on South Congress Avenue, our property is in an area that is somewhat more industrial. In fact, our neighbor to the south is an auto impound facility and to the north, a mini-warehouse storage facility. Immediately in front of and behind our home, the land is unimproved and undeveloped. For some, this might be 'off-putting'. For us, it's just another of the unique qualities that make Austin what it is. In fact, in 2007, our local paper, the Austin American Statesman, was considering whether or not to feature our home as one of the 'coolest' homes in Austin. We were a little apprehensive and didn't know if others would love the place as we do. But the reporter, after spending the day interviewing us for the article, and the photographer who did the photo shoot, both proclaimed our property 'their favorite' of all the cool and interesting homes they had featured. The Statesman did decide to feature us in their paper, and the Associated Press picked up the article and sent it out in national distribution.

Keywords: Country living in the city, unique, peaceful, charming, detached guest house retreat, studio apartment, open floor plan, light filled, comfy, cozy and inspiring!

About Roni Clark

Chris and Roni Clark have lived in Austin for 23 years. They have three rescued arabian horses that live on site along with their miniature schnauzer, Maggie Mae. They own and manage apartment rental units in central Austin and spend much of their free time working on their 7 acres in south Austin, training and riding horses, and driving and playing with sports cars.

Roni Clark purchased this studio in 1999

Why Roni Clark chose Austin

We didn't choose to buy this property, it chose us. From the first time we saw the huge front porch, sat and felt the breeze on a spring day as we looked out over the front 2 acre field of wildflowers, we were hooked. The minute we opened the massive 8' front entry doors, saw the hand tooled brass hinges and doorknobs, we knew we wanted this place and that we were meant for one another. And having 7 acres on Congress Avenue has been like having a small slice of the country right here in the city. Since we purchased this property in 1999, we've put our creative energy to work, improving every aspect of the property and creating a living environment that causes us to 'pinch ourselves' almost daily, just to make sure it's real. And now, we want to share some of this experience with others.

What makes this studio unique

Privacy. Peaceful. Introspective. We've gone to great lengths to make our guesthouse as peaceful, private and reflective as possible. Having everything you need and want in an efficient space, having access to everything Austin has to offer, yet having the time and place to relax, recharge and reflect. We set out to create a retreat, and that's exactly what it is. A retreat from the world, or just a respite from the lights and music and activities of Austin, we hope you will come and stay and enjoy. Additional note: This property does not have a television, however, it does have WIFI access.

Perfect Location in Austin

  • 5 of 5
We stayed four days in Austin and this guest house made our visit very enjoyable. The owners were very hospitable and forthcoming with local information such as great dining spots. The house was centrally located for all of our needs in Austin. I'll save the best for last..it was quiet at night! We will definitely be back.

The Greatest Place To Stay in Austin

  • 5 of 5
Whatever they say in the description of the property is 100% correct. We would recommend this property to our friends and family. You will not be far from downtown Austin, which is a wonderful place to visit. The owners, have books in the house that give you all the information about what to see and do while in Austin as well as for dining and music. The books also tell you about day trip outside of Austin, which we have done and enjoyed visits to some of the smaller towns and learning about their history. The Hill Country has so much history and now have become a mega for GREAT Texas Wine. You must go to The Story of Texas Museum. We spent three hours in the museum. Also, you must take a tour of the State Capital. This is a GREAT find and one that we will continue to book for our stay in Austin.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with our stay at this guest house. The house is cozy and beautiful, in an adorable little complex that is close to SoCo and downtown Austin. The owner was warm and welcoming and very respectful of our privacy. We had everything we needed in the house, and we felt very comfortable there. Will definitely return next time we are in Austin.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
I don't say this about much, but this place was the perfect fit for us. Roomy, functional, clean, friendly, and a great location for the friends we were visiting in town. Chris was an awesome host; there was coffee, juice, and cream in the fridge upon arrival. The place is beautifully decorated without being over the top - comfortable!

This was my first experience with a VRBO. I would stay here again without hesitation. It was quiet, private and very comfortable. The owners were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to see that I had a pleasant experience.

The tree house was even better than we imagined! It was extremely clean, quiet, and peaceful. We loved being close to south Austin activities, while still feeling "away from it all".
