COZY AND AFFORDABLE RETREAT--MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN, BARTON SPRINGS

Austin Studio Rental Photos and Description

If you come to Austin, you will likely spend most of your time outside the house. So rent this quaint, cozy little studio in the heart of the Zilker area and save money to spend on activities! The studio (meaning no separate living room) is located on the ground level of a stone triplex built in the 1940s. It has been completely renovated and boasts fresh, natural materials, including stained concrete floors and countertops, painted stucco walls, and restored wood windows that let in loads of natural light. The studio is surrounded by a large, private patio with lots of shade and seating.

You can rent the studio to sleep a total of 2, or you can combine it with one or both of the other units in the house to sleep a total of 4 or 6. Too see the other units, please type their listing numbers in the VRBO search bar: 450977 ('Treetop Suite') and 442385 ('Urban Hideaway').

All 3 units have clean, crisp linens, quality furnishings, and original art. Our WiFi connection is good, and the patios are a great place to enjoy the quiet of an established Austin neighborhood only five minutes from downtown and the SoCo district, and walking distance of the South Lamar (“SoLa”) district.

We offer bikes for you to explore the many things to do within walking or biking distance from the house. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, check out the greenbelt along Barton Creek or Barton Springs Pool--each about a mile away. If you are looking for great food, you are just around the corner from the iconic Matt's El Rancho and the fabulous 'Restaurant Row' on Barton Springs Road. Walk to the ACL music festival or enjoy live outdoor summer theater at Zilker Park. Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Zilker Botanical Garden are beautiful places to explore and picnic. At the end of the day, dance to live country music at the locally-famous hole in the wall--the Broken Spoke. Or check out the HighBall retro bowling alley/karaoke bar and neighboring Alamo Drafthouse Cinema--uniquely Austin experiences.

If you want to venture outside the neighborhood, we're also close to the University of Texas and the Highland Lakes just west of town. We are happy to recommend things to do and places to see.

We are a husband and wife team that loves old houses. We were each renovating our own 1940's era home when we met. Since then, we've acquired two additional homes and had four children. We love spending time with both--keeping the houses in great shape for years to come and keeping the kids busy and fed! One of us is a native Austinite and the other has been here since 1995, so feel free to ask us anything you want to know about Austin, and we will try our best to help.

Ann Giles purchased this studio in 1998

Location and character. Close to downtown, yet nestled in a quiet, established neighborhood with mature trees and great opportunities to explore nature. A unique structure--beautiful natural stone and concrete block construction originally built as a carriage house but easily converted to unique rental apartments

Original, natural building materials give the house character and soul. Clean and manicured outdoor areas extend the enjoyable space of the apartments. Clean and crisp linens and furnishings make for a relaxing and enjoyable retreat.

Quaint studio in Barton Hills area

This place has a lot of perks! Location, outside space, bikes... It was clean, nicely decorated & furnished just as the pictures represented. Only downside for us was the bed - too hard for our liking.

Nice place, off the main roads, we were able to get around on the bus (no rental car needed),but we stuck to local/city activities/venues. Owners were available and responded quickly and even came to pick us up when we had a bike malfunction. Great area, patio was great for relaxing.

Just returned from a week's stay at this property. Located just over 2 blocks from bus stops which is super convenient for travel across town or downtown. You won't need a car to take in the state Capitol, museums, great dining....you name it. Owner nearby and very accommodating. We stayed in the upstairs one-bedroom. Urban chic decor. We felt we were in a Chicago apartment. All in all, a very good place to stay!

Perfect spot for ACL or any Austin getaway

As pretty as the photos portray -- My husband and I relished our stay at this cozy and attractive apartment in a nice neighborhood. The smart decor and efficient layout provided a comfortable amount of space inside and out -- ideal for a couple or solo guest. The off-street parking and on-site bikes were much-appreciated amenities for dealing with the traffic challenges of ACL weekend. We loved the fantastic selection of restaurants nearby and easily found a few supplies at shops located just blocks away. Highly recommend!
