Overview

Austin Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Loft Apartment, Queen Bedroom, Luxury Bathroom (Sleeps 2+)

Visit Austin and stay in the best SoCo location in the city - less than one block (50 yards) from South Congress Avenue's vibrant center - out the door and around the corner to fine restaurants, boutiques, food trailers, live music and the hub of activities for Austin's major events. This location is right in the middle of many of the special live venues for SXSW, and close by all of Austin's local year round entertainment. There are 20 restaurants to choose from less than a 10 minute walk from our front door.

The Art Alley Lofts are brand new apartments, built specifically for visitors wanting to be in the heart of Austin's activities - This is one of two side-by-side lofts available. These separate beautiful studio apartments each has a queen size bed, and comfortable lounging area with luxury private bath that offers you a personal retreat right in the middle of one of Austin's favorite city spots.

Our heart of SoCo location is right off S. Congress Ave in the Bouldin Creek neighborhood - putting you minutes from downtown and at the center of SoCo, two blocks from the Hotel San Jose. All of our visitors truly enjoy this vibrant area.

The Art Alley Lofts have a mini-refrigerator, microwave oven, hot-water kettle, plates, silverware, cups, glasses and wine glasses - everything you need for light eating in this apartment home, and with dozens of interesting and gourmet restaurants to choose from, good food is always close by.

Fantastic restaurants, 24/7 breakfast, live music, boutique and vintage shopping are all just steps away from your front door - relax and enjoy the private courtyard area.

We often provide a casual wine or beer tasting on Friday evenings in the courtyard (if we're not off at one of the many Austin special events)...

The Art Alley Lofts are fully registered and licensed by the City of Austin as an approved Short Term Rental (Austin STR) property, meeting the city code inspection and safety requirements.

Our license to operate an Austin STR has been current since we built these new lofts and opened in late 2012.

About Nan

Hi - I'm Nan… We've been Austin residents for 17+ years - and have traveled across the US and around the world, using VRBO / Home Away for our stays in many different countries.

We enjoy live music, great food, good friends and all the varied outdoor activities that Austin has to offer.

You can join us for a swim in the local public pool at Stacy Park - just a short walk or bike ride away. Swimming at Barton Springs or mountain biking on one of Austin's many great trails...

Our guests like to start their day with coffee in the private courtyard, and end the day in the courtyard sipping a nice glass of wine or one of our refreshing home brewed craft beers - join us !!

Nan purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Nan chose Austin

We chose this property to live right in the middle of one of Austin's most happening areas SoCo (S. Congress / Bouldin Creek area) & SoFi (South First St. area) - we love to walk or bike everywhere and there's always something fun to do or a great restaurant choice just minutes away.

With dozens of personal experiences staying at VRBO apartments around the world, we knew exactly what we wanted to provide in our Art Alley Lofts for you to have the best stay in Austin !!

What makes this apartment unique

We are avid bicycle riders and have a large selection of FREE bicycles available for you to use when you stay with us in the Art Alley Lofts. Ride downtown or to Zilker park for ACL and be there in just minutes from this central location. Multi-speed cruisers, geared mountain bikes and a few unique single-speed city bikes - Baskets, Lights, Helmets and Locks...

We provide a long list of items available for you to use during your visit…including: Folding Chairs, Oversize Pool Towels (to use at the springs), Full Sets of Frisbee Golf Disks (3 courses in town), Day Packs, Walking Sticks, Picnic Wine Glasses, and much, much more...

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from a wonderful stay at the Lofts. The owner was very friendly and helped us get settled in quickly. Thank you so much for letting us borrow the umbrellas, we did not come prepared to brave the rain. The bed was very comfortable and we loved the updated bathroom. It gave us the privacy we wanted with direct access to all things going on in the SoCo neighborhood. We are definitely coming back!

A Work of Art!

  • 5 of 5

Missing Austin and loft as I am writing this review. Loft was cozy and felt like a home away from home. Nan was gracious and hospitable while offering recommendations which made our trip even more memorable. We have high expectations of other rentals after staying here and hope to return soon!

Perfect for European guest

  • 5 of 5

My friend from Copenhagen enjoyed her stay at the Lofts. She enjoyed being close to restaurants and the use of a bicycle. She liked the mini-fridge, microwave, and hot water machine. I am an Austin native but my friend needed to be closer to the action and this loft was perfect. I will recommend to other out-of-towners when they ask for a place to stay!!

The Best!!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect in every way. Nan greeted us and made us feel very welcome. The loft was exactly as pictured and was very clean and well stocked. The location is perfect for the S. Congress and 1st Street areas. A short walk to the S. Congress bridge, downtown and the capital. We will definitely be back and will definitely stay here again. Thanks Nan!!

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled the moment we walked through the gate into the courtyard of Art Alley Lofts. So serene and inviting. The loft was exactly as pictured - extremely clean, and well stocked. Nan greeted us with a genuinely warm and welcoming smile - we instantly felt relaxed. The location is perfect, just steps from everything South Congress has to offer. Great food, fantastic music, eclectic shops, all just a very short walk away. Nan was quick to offer tips on great things to see and do and went out of her way to make sure our stay was the best it could be. Austin will be a regular destination for us and we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.
