About the property

Studio sleeps up to 4 in Queen bed and Queen pull out couch; full kitchen!

The Studio, our most affordable efficiency condo, is decorated with a "music" theme and has artwork and photos of Austin musicians. It has a 'James Bond' Queen bed with hidden pull-down arm rest and cup holders - along with Tempurpedic mattress and a Queen sized pull out couch. There is a private porch with a table and 4 chairs. Gas grill is shared with The Sweet next door and is on the side of the building.

Located just a few blocks from Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, and the hike-and-bike trail around Lady Bird Lake, you have access to kayaking, canoeing or stand up paddle boarding, swimming, beach volleyball, Frisbee golf, hiking on the greenbelt, the Garden Center, the Nature Center and the playground and the train for the kids or a picnic on the Great Lawn. You can also venture out to explore The Live Music Capitol of the world at night. Or relax with the HDTV and Blueray DVD player.

Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park: We are located just two blocks from the single best swimming pool in the universe, Barton Springs. Use our beach towels, mats and/or chairs and enjoy the spring fed, chlorine-free waters of this over 1/8 mile long watering hole.

Downtown Austin is just 2 miles away!: I'm sure you've heard of the madness on 6th Street, but certainly don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, 2nd Street, 4th Street and then West 6th Street!

Alamo Drafthouse and The Highball: See a movie while eating dinner or just having a drink at Austin's favorite theater, the Alamo Drafthouse, or enjoy dinner, drinks, live music, dancing, and karaoke at The Highball, both just a short distance from this unit.

Notes:
The Studio is our most economical unit, renting at only $109 per night during the week. You can enjoy all the perks of being near Zilker Park for less than you’ll find any decent hotel in the area. This studio is on the lower floor and is the perfect place for a couple looking for a get-away, an extended stay for a work contract, or pull the couch-bed out and squeeze four people in for a weekend out on the town. The “James Bond” bed is the perfect place to sit up and watch a movie, or work on your laptop while your drink sits safely in the fold-down cup holder! The front patio is very comfortable and is a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee in the fresh air. The kitchen is fully furnished with all the essentials so you can cook in if you’re not in to eating out.

Very nice in all respects!

  • 5 of 5

We were offered an upgrade to and stayed in The Heart House, which is also owned by the ZilkerVacations group and is in the same multi-plex but on the top floor. The Heart House is in a convenient location, has parking at the front door, and a great view of downtown Austin at night. It was equipped with every amenity and spotlessly clean. We communicated with the owners by e-mail and that worked flawlessly. Normally stay with family when visiting in Austin, but would happily stay here again.

Relaxing Austin Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Studio in late March and loved every moment of our time in Austin! This property is very close to Zilker Park, downtown Austin, and dozens of wonderful restaurants. Jay, Cynthia, and Peach made us feel very welcome. We will definitely look to rent from them again next time we explore Austin!

Great place, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Austin area and I am so glad this is where we stayed! It was a five/ten minute walk to restaurants, shops, and the park, where you can kayak, paddle board, and canoe. It takes five minutes (if that) to drive into the city, which was perfect for us.

We had no problems ever getting into or out of the apartment. Jay and Cynthia sent all the information necessary to access the apartment in advance and it worked out very well! They are awesome with communication and their apartment itself was a perfect fit for the 3 of us. I totally would stay here again!

Owner's Response: We actually upgraded Jennifer to the apartment next door to this one, which we call The Sweet, which is a one bedroom, not a studio, so I think that 3 might have been more comfortable in the larger unit than the Studio.

The Studio - Austin comfort at a reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Studio. We had all the comforts of home and all the advantages of being in Austin, TX. And so much to do in a central location. The pictures and description of the property are totally accurate. It is clean and well maintained and we will highly recommend the property to our friends and relatives who may want to visit. Thank you for the very positive experience!

Fun stay at The Studio!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at The Studio! Everything was clean and well stocked. It was particularly nice to have the shampoo, conditioner and body wash at the apartment and not deal w/ packing those. The location was fantastic, easy to find and very easy to get to everything.

Excellent value

  • 5 of 5

This studio is a great value. If we hadn't experienced a ridiculous amount of rain during our entire trip, we could have taken full advantage of close-by Zilker Park. It's walkable, and the park itself looks like it offers great outdoor activities. In addition to being close to the park, the studio is convenient to everything in South and downtown Austin. We had a car, so North Austin wasn't far either. The studio had ample parking, too. The apartment is exactly as pictured. Everything was very clean and comfortable, and it's a good size for two people. The owners were easy to work with and responsive. I would definitely recommend a stay here.
