Overview

Austin Studio Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, full kitchen, sleeps 2

This charming property is centrally located, just north of downtown & UT campus and right next door to the new Dell Children's Hospital. Two parks (with playgrounds, tennis courts, and pool) within walking distance. Bus stop one block from rental - on the bus route to UT. Distance to local attractions: 2.7 miles to University of Texas, 3.6 miles to 6th Street (downtown music district), 3.9 miles to Austin Convention Center, 5.9 miles to Zilker park (location of ACL). Butler cottage comes with a fully equipped kitchen, high speed wireless, fenced in yard, and tons of personality. It is ideal for corporate rentals, visiting family/friends, UT fans (great access to the stadium), music festivals (SXSW & ACL), or just getting to know Austin.

City Wildlife!: Our neighborhood boasts a family of Peacocks. They roam freely and are usually wandering through our and our neighbor's yards in the morning and early afternoon. Their distinct calls can be heard from the trees where they perch in the evenings.

About Reyna Bishop

We are Rob and Reyna. We are an Austin couple with 2 kids, a dog, and a cat. Before the kids came, we traveled a lot and used VRBO almost exclusively. So, when we found a house with an attached studio, it seemed natural to rent it out as a vacation rental.

Reyna Bishop purchased this studio in 2005

Why Reyna Bishop chose Austin

We live in the house connected to the studio. This is an advantage in many ways. Not only are we more accessible to our guests, but we have a closer connection to the house. It is an old house (1940s) with all the charms and problems that come with that. The neighborhood is friendly and walkable and we love the proximity to downtown Austin.

Pefect locale for Austin stay

  • 5 of 5

You cannot find a better place for the price and location. This cottage is located on Airport Blvd and I-35, which only puts you within minutes from downtown Austin or North Austin. I've stayed at this place a few times and always happy with my accomodations. Love the privacy and the "austin vibe" to this little cottage. As a frequent business traveler, having homey feel to my lodging such as Butler cottage is a fresh alternative to bland hotel rooms with fluroscent lightings and stained sheets. I love doing Austin weekends and this cottage always assures me a cool stay for my budget

Quiet, convenient location, very nice people!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my Ausiin stay in this centrally located studio. It was quiet, clean, very comfortable bed, great TV and wifi, with excellent hosts. Exactly what I needed after a day on the go around Austin. I would definitely stay here again.

Best for short term

  • 3 of 5

Very cute and convenient for me. Nice, thoughtful landlords. Pretty neighborhood, but noisy! Great Windows and wood floor. Roomy closet. . Lots of hot water and excellent climate control. Easy parking! Nice kitchen! Absolutely needs at least one comfortable chair and reading light. It has a thick soft mattress. I would replace mattress and bedding. I too have rental property, understand how mattress can be abused and so often need replacement. Very nice to have your own entrance.

quiet, well located, nice neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

The Butler Studio is in a nice neighborhood and is well located for getting around in Austin. There's a small area for sitting outside. It's quiet, clean, and comfortable. We will stay there again when we visit our daughter as long as she lives nearby. I recommend the Butler Studio to those visiting Austin. Be advised, however, that it's too small to accommodate having visitors.

Great little get away

  • 4 of 5

First off I procrastinated and didn't book the place until 2 days before my scheduled time, but they took care of me right away and had me booked fast.

The place was nice and quiet perfect for a little get away.

There really was peacocks and peahens walking around the neighborhood which was nice.

The place was nice and clean.

It had plenty of dished to cook for yourself (which we did) and plenty of supplies to last the weekend.(Soap/shampoo/conditioner/dishes/paper towels/toiletpaper)

overall I loved it and will recommend this spot to anyone looking to get away.

This spot is perfect for a couple but no room for not for anymore that 2 people.
