This is not a mirage!

A large, quiet oasis close to everything, surrounded by smaller condos and tiny expensive hotel rooms. Perfect for conventioneers, business trips, Formula 1, ACL, SXSW, or just a leisure visit to the wonderful city of Austin.

Newly furnished and well appointed with lots of amenities. This condo has a beautiful granite/stainless kitchen, wet bar, cable TV, free WiFi, pool, gated building, secured parking, and much more.

Lots of room, This is a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom condo with 2 queen beds and 2 twin beds (all plush real pillowtop mattresses). Air mattresses are available upon request. The breakfast bar and 4-top table make a great spot to fire up the laptop and take advantage of the rock-solid WiFi.

Nothing beats the location… One block from the Austin Convention Center, 2 blocks from Congress Avenue, 2 blocks from the historic 6th Street entertainment district, surrounded by countless fantastic restaurants within easy walking distance, Starbucks and a sports-bar across the street, 1 block from the Metro Rail, and 4 blocks from the Lady Bird Lake hike and bike jogging trail.

So many activities nearby, canoe on Lady Bird Lake, catch your favorite band at one of the many great music venues, taste a local brew, tour the Capitol, watch a local comedy show, get mesmerized by the famous Austin bats, shop ‘til you drop, explore The University of Texas campus, tour one of the many museums, catch a flick at the IMAX…

Guestbook comments from the owner
The look of the space is phenomenal. It was a nice place to escape to for the weekend. The location made it even better! My friends and I were literally able to walk to everything, making everything about our visit very convenient and stress free!

I am a native Texan raised in Dallas. I left for college in the late 80s to attend The University of Texas at Austin. I quickly fell in love with the city and have lived here ever since. I live downtown so that I can enjoy the vibrant atmosphere, constant excitement, so much to do, live music, countless festivals, the lake, the miles of hike and bike trails, museums, great food, the State Capital, and the UT campus.

Steve purchased this condo in 2012

Because real estate is doing well in Austin, I bought this condo as an investment with the idea that I could live there some day because of its great location and size.

It is truly a quiet oasis dwarfed by highrises with excitement outside the gates in all directions.

Nice for all ages...we had a lovely time.

  • 5 of 5
3 generations (ages 9-69) stayed 5 days for our girl's retreat. We found many places to eat, shop & visit in walking distance. We always felt very safe.
We went out of the city one day for McKinney Falls state park, lunch at Salt Lick bbq and a lovely visit to Lady Bird's wildflower center. Highly recommend the Bullock State history museum...New and wonderful.
Suggest you pack lightly for carrying the luggage up a flight of stairs...and,as others have noted, it can get loud at times...But it's a nicely organized condo and is very comfortable.
The juice, bagels & cream cheese & coffee Steve provided was a lovely treat...thanks Steve!
We've stayed in many condos over decades and this one ranks with the small group at the top of the list.

Lovely Stay!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was the perfect choice for my family's visit to Austin. There was ample space for everyone to feel at home, the bedrooms were comfortable and well-appointed and the kitchen was well-stocked. It is ideally located in the heart of downtown; as soon as you step out of the door there are restaurants, bars, music venues and other things to do in easy walking distance in every direction.

Steve was a pleasure to work with before we checked in, during our stay and afterwards. He was very responsive to all of my communications and very helpful when a few unusual problems occurred. We were thrilled to find the fixings for a basic breakfast when we checked in after a long day of travel. Steve really goes the extra mile to make your stay pleasant and successful.

I would not hesitate to recommend this location to anyone or return if we ever get back to Austin. (Although be aware that the condo is in the middle of a very busy part of downtown. If you are a sensitive sleeper, bring earplugs. There is a lot of noise from the street - especially on the weekend.)

Great girls weekend oasis :)

  • 5 of 5
What a great weekend in Austin! This cozy little place is exactly what you need for a girls weekend get-away. We had 6 in our group and it was great to have a little kitchen and area to hang out. Steve was so helpful with prompt replies to e-mails and phone calls and offered lots of suggestions for our visit. Somehow he even rigged the weather for us ;)

Austin Weekend

My family and I spent a wonderful weekend at Steve's condo. When we arrived there was oj, bagels, and cream cheese which was perfect. The location was great. We walked just about everywhere. I would recommend Esther Follies to whoever visits Austin. Enjoy.

Girls weekend

  • 4 of 5
We loved the location. The unit was clean and well supplied. Steve even provided bagels, coffee and juice to get us going. Our only concerns were some noisy nights and dim lighting in the living area. We think these concerns were outweighed by the excellent service and convenience.
