(License #114332) This large, contemporary studio apartment just south of the river is urban living at its best. This newly-constructed studio maintains an exterior old world flagstone charm, but with modern amenities. The property is canopied by 100-year-old Live Oak trees, native stone walkways and is surrounded by mature gardens. The vaulted ceiling and natural light lend a feeling of spaciousness to the studio. South-facing french doors lead down to a large private patio curtained by bamboo. The apartment is located on the NE corner of the charming Travis Heights neighborhood.
The kitchen with new appliances is stocked with utensils, cookware and coffee ware.
Stay Connected: A 37'' HDTV with plenty of HD cable channels to choose from and high-speed wireless Internet access are included to keep you connected. There are also plenty of hot spots in Austin you can visit.
Private and Secure: This vacation rental is located behind the owner's home; it sits atop the detached garage at the back of the property. You will walk through a shared patio and garden to reach the rental. You will see us, but maintain your privacy. The entire property is gated in and the apartment has its own alarm system.
Great Location: From the studio you can take a leisurely stroll through one of Austin's oldest neighborhoods to the shops, restaurants and people watching along South Congress. Or you can easily head to the hike and bike trail, go downtown to the 2nd, 4th and 6th Street districts, the Austin Convention Center and other hot spots around town. All of these are about a mile from the apartment.
If you're coming to Austin for a short stay on your own or as a couple, this place is ideal for you. It's affordable, beautiful, clean, cozy, convenient and comfortable. A $5 cab or $1.50 bus ride gets you downtown quickly. You're also less than a $20 cab ride and 15 minutes from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport if you don't feel like renting a car.
Hi! We're Amy and Todd. We know there are people that have been doing the vacation rental thing much longer than us. We've been hosts for a few years, but our first time as guests was in 1996 in San Francisco. Fast-forward a decade and Zam! we're building our own. Meeting all the Austin-destined travelers is one of the best aspects of doing this. Whether you stay with us or not, Austin is a great part of Texas and we're happy to help you make the most of it.
Our house and the rental apartment could only be closer to downtown Austin if it were a condo. Our house in Travis Heights is one of the originals. It was built in the '30s. The original garage apartment was built in 1940. A few years ago we tore it down other than the stone wall foundation and started building this rental apartment. It's now complete and pretty darn cool.
Convenience to all of Austin's attractions makes this vacation or corporate rental worth looking into. There's a great private patio in the back. The apartment is ideal for one or two people. The couch does fold down if needed. Unlike many listings, our place was built and designed with short-term rentals in mind. A coffee maker and French press are available, as well as a choice of teas.
