About Carye

Carey and Dave are well traveled and both work at a large hospital in downtown Austin. Carey is from Texas and has been in Austin since 1988, Dave is from Montana and relocated to Austin to be with Carey (and enjoy mountain biking year round!). If you would like any recommendations for outdoor activities, cycling trails, parks, etc they can help out. Two small, well-behaved dogs live in the other half of the duplex and will be seen in the gated off backyard when they choose to come out their doggie door. No barking!

Carye purchased this studio in 2006

Why Carye chose Austin

We chose this property six years ago when the house was built because we both love cycling and wanted to be able to ride our bikes to downtown and work--20 minute leisurely ride to Town Lake, 10-15 minutes to S. Congress restaurants, Continental Club, great coffee shops and Mexican food.

What makes this studio unique

We love the location of this home and the low upkeep. Tile floors throughout keep things clean and vaulted ceilings make the area feel larger. The studio gets plenty of light, but has 2' wooden blinds and curtains if you would like to sleep late!

30 day cancellation policy for refund. If cancellation is less than 30 days we will be happy to open the calendar and re-list the studio. If the studio re-books we will be able to offer a refund.

Relaxing & Cozy Get-Away Close to Everything Austin Has to Offee!

  • 5 of 5

The comfortable and cozy studio had everything my husband and I needed for a relaxing getaway together to restore & renew while soaking up the nearby sites and sounds of Austin! Located outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown Austin, but close enough to it all to get to town in a short 10 minute drive!

The studio was quiet & the bed is SO comfortable- we both had great night sleeps! The big bathtub is perfect for a relaxing soak. The fans and window AC unit are cooling and at the same time drown out an outside noise (which we heard none of!)

Carye and her husband are most accommodating and thought of everything from phone chargers to bubble bath and coffee/Kureig coffee maker!

The studio has everything to make you feel like you're home away from home!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Quiet, comfortable studio not far from downtown

  • 5 of 5

Overall very good experience. The studio is located a little south of all the popular shops and restaurants on South Congress. It was easy to find and parking was readily available on the street. The room was comfortable and cozy, and the bathroom was nice with the shower and tub. We went to South Congress, Downtown, and Barton Springs and the drives were pretty easy. It wouldn't be too bad if you needed to get an Uber (or whatever Austin has at the time). Carye also allowed us to check in early and leave late, which made for a much more relaxed Sunday morning. I would definitely recommend for one or two people visiting Austin for a casual weekend.

Great little place

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable w a great night's sleep between the cozy bed and white out noise machine. Room unit a/c does a great job and convenient location. Would definitely stay here again. (Only suggestion is for the solar side yard lights to be operable bc it's quite dark walking down the side of the houses to the back without them at night). But back light porch is helpful.

The perfect place just outside of downtown Austin

  • 5 of 5

My fiancee and I stayed here for three nights, and it was amazing. It was like our own little home while we were visiting Austin. We even referred to it as such! The place is exactly as advertised; the bed was super comfy and we got a good nights sleep on it every night. The host was very caring, giving us texts throughout our time there and was available at anytime if we had a question or anything. I definitely recommend this place.

Our home is located in South Central Austin-less than half a mile

off two major highways (I35 and Ben White/290/71) and a direct

drive down scenic S. Congress 3.5 miles to Town Lake and downtown, passing numerous restaurants and music venues along the way. The neighborhood is only six years old and conveniently located to grocery stores, a liquor store, the famous Hill's Cafe is only 1/2 mile down the road!
