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 dog friendly, vaulted ceilings make the area feel larger. The master bedroom gets plenty of light, but has 2' wooden blinds and curtains if you would like to sleep late!

Best of worlds, cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here during our birthday weekend. We are UT alumni so we come back to visit often and this little guest house is our favorite place to stay so far, way more private and "homey" than a hotel. We spent most of our time in Central and South Austin so the location was really great for us (about 10 or 15 minutes to most places we went). The other reviews are right about the bedding, so comfortable! We spent most of Sunday after noon lounging in the bed watching TV. Carye and David were also very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back in the future!

Comfortable & Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at at the "Downtown Convenience" home. The owner Carye was very inviting, and checked in on us to ensure our needs were met. We had a busy weekend of house hunting and interviews so it was very nice to be in this quiet and comfortable studio.

Just right for two....

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we were very happy with our stay! Everything was very clean. Lots of literature provided about Austin for those new in town. Small kitchen was handy with mini fridge and Keurig. One minor point - would have liked to have some Keurig tea provided along with the coffee, rather than tea bags. Nice bathroom with both tub and shower. Had a minor problem with the cable but it was quickly taken care of. Excellent location not too far from South Congress. We will stay here again!

Cozy & Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

This little "suite" was perfect for our long, busy weekend in Austin! Great price, really comfy bed, very nice bathroom & giant closet/kitchenette were just right. Pretty view of backyard & Dohm wiped out any unwanted noise. It's in a great SoCo location just a few miles from downtown. But be prepared for bad traffic & allow extra time to drive anywhere! Only issue was very small TV but you'll probably be too busy to watch much anyway. Carye was awesome & quickly replied to every text! Can't wait to stay again next time we're lucky enough to visit Austin!!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location was great, the room looked exactly how it is pictured and was very inviting and quiet. Great hosts who helped us with recommendations on restaurants and also how to deal with the awful traffic coming in from Dallas. I would absolutely stay again!

Great Stay Just South of Downtown Austin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this studio just south of downtown Austin. The property is just how it looks in the pictures, we had no trouble accessing the place. It was clean and tidy and even had a Keurig to make coffee. The owner provided great customer service and checked in with us during our stay. We really enjoyed the location as we were in for a wedding just south of the studio and could access that location plus all the great things to do downtown just minutes away. Thank you!!!!

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!
