Charming South Congress studio with large bathroom-perfect for two
Our spacious, quiet, one bedroom studio is a comfortable home base for tourists and business travelers. We look forward to hosting you in our convenient Austin neighborhood three miles south of downtown. We are 1/2 mile from newly developed The Yard—a collection of breweries, coffee shops, wine tasting rooms, food trailers, and a whiskey still. Walk down and have everything you need in one spot! The Spokesman has excellent coffee and a light breakfast/lunch menu. St Elmo brewery has been rated one of the top new breweries in town, has a tasty food truck Sour Sop, and offers great music including a Thursday night bluegrass set.
A plush queen-size bed and quiet neighborhood make for a wonderful night’s sleep. Our walk-in closet has plenty of storage room and includes a mini-fridge, Keurig coffee maker, and a microwave for your convenience. Coffee and tea are complimentary. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening on your private patio.
We are located 15 minutes (about a $15 rideshare) from the airport. Most of our guests have a car for transportation, but Uber, Lyft, Fasten, Rideaustin all operate here and are reasonably priced rides from the studio to downtown.
The studio offers:
*Google Fibre internet
*TV with cable channels, DVD player
*USB charger for your devices
*30 day full refund/ 14 day 50% refund cancellation policy
*no smoking environment

The studio is well-stocked with all the basics: linens, some extra toiletries, a hair dryer, coffee/tea set up, bottled water. We are frequent travelers ourselves and want to make your stay is as comfortable as possible.

About Carye and Dave
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.
Carye and Dave purchased this Studio in 2006
Why Carye and Dave chose Franklin Park
We chose this property 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. The neighborhood continues to develop and we now have some great breweries, coffee shops, and music venues within walking distance at The Yard.
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!

Relaxing & Cozy Get-Away Close to Everything Austin Has to Offee!
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!
Clean, comfortable, everything you need to make you feel at home!
This was a fantastic little property that was private, cozy, extremely clean, and close to everything you would want in Austin. So nice not have to worry about parking. The homeowners were meticulous with details and instructions and with very helpful recommendations. Thank you for a great stay and Austin experience!
GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY!
First of all - if you are visiting Austin, you made a GREAT choice!
It is a fantastic town.
I took my boyfriend there for a weekend getaway and we stayed at this property! Carye was very accommodating allowing us to have a late checkout. The size of the studio was perfect for us! Plus great distance from downtown. I would 10/10 recommend.
Thank you, Shelby--so glad you thought the studio was a 10/10! I'm happy the two of you had a great visit to Austin and hope to see you again in the future. Thank you, Carye and Dave
Private and comfy.
It was quiet and had extra amenities.
Thank you, Janet. I am glad the studio was a quiet home base for your visit. I love our neighborhood and neighbors!
Very convenient to downtown Austin.
Loved the room and extra conveniences like Kurig, microwave and refrigerator. Quiet neighborhood.
Thank you so much. We are glad you enjoyed your week in the studio visiting family. Sounds like you had some great advice from your son on where to visit and really enjoyed your trip. Hope to have you again in the future. Carye and Dave
Good location, comfortable layout and lots of very nice touches. We both thought the unit was cute and professionally staged... the first time in Austin and loved the town too.
So glad you liked the studio! Dave and I used to travel for work and just furnish it the way we liked things when we were on the road. Sounds like you had a great trip visiting your grandson--hope to see you on a return visit. Carye and Dave
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!
