Stay right in the heart of vibrant downtown in this two-story loft that comfortably accommodates 1-6 guests in an open floor plan with walls of windows. This home offers a stylish yet economical way to enjoy all that downtown Austin has to offer.

SLEEPING: This loft can sleep 1-6 guests. There is a sleeper sofa located on the entry level, as well as two separate sleeping areas upstairs. One is equipped with two twin size beds, and the other has a king.

EATING: Use the fully stocked kitchen with stainless steel appliances for meal preparation or walk to some of Austin's best restaurants. There is a dining area that can be used for meetings or meals.

LOCATION: This truly is a 'car optional' property. For guests arriving from the airport, there is a $1.75 shuttle from the airport that drops off at the convention center, only a few blocks away from our loft.

WALK TO: This condo puts you in the very heart of downtown Austin. You can easily walk to:

Convention Center

6th Street entertainment district

State Capitol

Town Lake

Congress Street 'Bat' Bridge

Plus 100's of restaurants, shops and other tourist attractions.

This home has everything you need to live like a local; an incredible walkability score that gives you close access to hundreds of bars/restaurants paired with an eclectically decorated open loft in the heart of downtown.

DOWNTOWN LIVING: This home is right on 6th Street so you have direct access to one of the most popular streets in the 'Live Music Capitol of the World' where there are countless bars and restaurants within walking distance. If you don't feel like going out, many local restaurants, shops and grocery stores deliver to this building, including the flagship Whole Foods Market.

This is a great location and a great home for those who want to explore Downtown Austin – you can be a part of it all! While this is a super convenient location, it is definitely not quiet. The bars, restaurants, and music venues do stay open until 2 am or later. If this does not seem like the Top Fit for you, we do have other homes in quieter neighborhoods.

About Chereen Fisher

I have lived in Austin since 1979 and seen it grow and develop extensively during that time. After seeing what was out there, I decided there was a need for a home-type setting right in the middle of downtown as a true alternative to the common hotel that could provide a nice, comfortable and affordable way for my guests to really experience Austin! Even after 30 years I can still find something fun and new to do near this location; the location is perfect - you don't even need a car. You can take the elevator down to Austin’s famous 6th Street and start exploring on foot. The Austin Visitor's Center is 1/2 block away if you have any questions during your visit, and we also provide a welcome packet with a few suggestions of our own. There is truly something for all ages in near this home away from home.

Great Rental!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in this condo with five of my girlfriends from college for three nights.

The location is great! It is centered right in the middle of East (dirty 6th street/college bars) and West 6th street (younger professionals). You can walk about anywhere from this location and there are so many places to eat and drink around here. There was a market right next door to the condo, which served us well after the bars!

The property was cleaned and well maintained. Upstairs is a big loft with two twin beds and one king bed. There is only one bathroom, but it didn't seem to be an issue. Recommend staying in this place if you're looking to stay near nightlife.

Truly in the heart of the city

  • 5 of 5

Can't beat the location of this downtown loft! We experienced the true downtown Austin living and were able to watch all the action right from our balcony. Certainly big enough for our girls' weekend (just the 3 of us). The reserved parking was an added plus! We spent our time walking around the downtown area and everything else was just a short drive away. Owner was very responsive to our questions. Didn't have time to try all the great BBQ... So will definitely need to go back and keep this place in mind.

The Perfect Location for a Weekend in Austin

  • 5 of 5

The description and pictures of this loft are spot-on. It's literally located at the feet of 6th St and there isn't a single need for a car the entire weekend if you plan on just sticking around Austin. Using the info from one of the other reviews we grabbed a shuttle from the airport and it dropped us off right in front of the building. The balcony doesn't overlook 6th St but that almost certainly helps in the noise department.

We had 6 in the unit and everyone slept comfortably. There is only 1 bathroom and that's a bit of a drawback but we made it work just fine.

Just to give an indicator of how well we all liked the place, I have a friend whose possibly traveling to Austin this spring who stayed here and this was his first option for accommodations.

The perfect spot!

  • 4 of 5

This loft was the perfect spot for us! Close to the Driskill for the wedding we were attending, an easy walk to the children's museum with our grandson, and a fun view of Halloween partying on 6th street from the loft's balcony. We are in Austin a lot but this was a new and very enjoyable experience. The loft was charming and very comfortable.
