Cute and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Convenient to great restaurants and downtown. We were able to get to ACL easily. Very clean, comfortable bed, and our teenages slept fine on the futon. The owner was great and had some OJ, coffee/creamer, and some scones waiting for our arrival. Only downside was 4 females and only a single mirror in bathroom...another mirror hanging or even full length would be a nice addition outside the bathroom. Overall great place and would stay here again!

Convenient and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We spent four very nice nights in this studio apartment while in town to attend a conference downtown during the first two days. The accommodations were clean and quiet, perfect for my wife and me. Debra had the apartment spic and span upon our arrival, and was a courteous and thoughtful hostess. Everything we needed was there, and the location can't be beat. The trip downtown only took 10-15 minutes. We really enjoyed the food in Austin, too--a steakhouse one night, Texas BBQ another, and Tex-Mex a third, plus breakfast at the Quack Bakery, which is just a few blocks away from the apartment. We walked some of the trail around Lady Bird Lake one evening and ran it the next morning, spent an hour on the water in a double kayak, and had a fantastic time. If we ever have a chance to get back to Austin (and we'd love to), we would definitely hope that this studio is available then.

Very nice and confortable stay

  • 5 of 5

The studio is nice as it is described in the ad. New, clean and functional. Great shower. Next to HEB, bus stops and close to some nice restaurants and bars. Easy access to UT using Red River Ut Shuttle. The only con: there is not much natural light inside, a little bit dark.

Wonderful owner thought of everything

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed in a beautiful cosy apartment. It was well though out and extremely clean and welcoming. The owner had even placed some bread rolls milk coffee apples etc in the fridge to get us started. This was really appreciated as we arrived after a long journey at 9pm. It is close to UT and very close to the supermarket and liquor store. Laundry facilities are well priced but take plenty of quarters for the coin op machines. We had a very comfortable stay here and would certainly return if we come back to Austin.

Comfortable clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was well positioned for visiting our daughter at UT. 10 minute car journey. There was a VERY comfortable bed plenty of clean towels and Debra the delightful owner had even put in some basic groceries such as milk, bagels, coffee, apples etc to get us started. I really appreciated this on arrival and was disappointed that our apartment managers in Cleveland and Washington DC have not done the same. There is nothing better after an arduous/stressful journey than to sit down with a cup of coffee and a healthy snack before you start to unpack and get going. We were able to have breakfast the next morning then find the local shops. We chose to walk the 10 minute walk and take a taxi back which cost only about 5 dollars. The local HEB supermarket is open 24/7 and has everything you need. I will say get a load of quarters if you need to do washing/drying. 4 for a wash and 5 for a dryer. They are industrial machines and work very well. I loved this part of my holiday and the Texans are so helpful.

A great place, nice and clean, newly remodeled! Small and cozy! We will come often to visit our grand babies nearby. Very nice owner. We recommended it to family. We liked Tacodeli for lunch!
