About Owner/ property manager

A local Austinite who enjoys sharing my favorite city in the US with fellow professionals and responsible travelers.

Owner/ property manager purchased this condo in 2001

Why Owner/ property manager chose Austin

Located near the corner of Lamar at 1106 W 6th Street, I chose this property for its cool urban vibe and quiet charm. This downtown enclave is the perfect spot to discover all of Austin's best attractions - no car required.

What makes this condo unique

Location. Location. Location. One can practically see Ladybird Lake from the huge picture window. Walk to the hike and bike trail, Zilker Park, Whole Foods Flagship HQ, or any one of Austin's legendary night spots. The condo is square in the middle of Austin's best restaurants. For example, a pager form Z Tejas restaurant works in the condo, so you can relax with friends while they find you a table.

Convenient, Quiet and Private

  • 5 of 5

I rented this unit for five days. It's a cute place, tastefully appointed and a one block walk from the Whole Foods flagship store on Lamar. VERY convenient and VERY quiet, nestled back from W 6th Street under a huge live oak tree. I never saw another tenant the entire time of my stay! It was totally relaxing and a great alternative to a hotel stay in Austin! Very close to bus lines, assigned parking space, towels, coffee maker, flat screen tv and Tempurpedic mattress... it's all there! Highly recommended.

Great Place, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This place is better than most any hotel you can stay at in Austin at a fraction of the price. If you plan to stay downtown the location could not be better. Walking to any restaurant or bar downtown, and a block away from Whole Foods. The condo is very spacious for its advertised size and has a very comfortable modern interior. The parking spot is about 10 feet from the front door. Had friends in town from NY and DC who were very impressed with the accommodations. Will recommend to anyone visiting Austin over any hotel.

Excellent stay, well-equiped property, walking distance from Austin Downtown

  • 5 of 5

I had a really enjoyable stay in this property. Everything was clean, the property is well equiped, nothing to complain about. And it's SO conveniently located: 5 minutes away (walking distance) from WholeFoods, Amy's icecream, and 10' away from west 6th street, with LOTS of bars and restaurants. I have stayed there in the past, will definitely consider staying there again, and recommend this property!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 3 nights for a getaway from LA. The location was perfect ,walking distance to everything. There is a bus stop around the corner that is also convenient to get across town, but mostly we walked. The Capitol and museums were about 20-30 minute walk. Near the condo...coffee /pastry shop (although the kitchen is fully equipped and there was coffee there that we used a few mornings). A block away Clark's Oyster Bar, Whole Foods(the biggest one I've ever seen), a great book store Book People. The condo was clean, well stocked, great WiFi...could maybe use new pillows for the bed, but other than that it was just like the photos and perfect! The owners answered all our questions and communication / response time was quick.

A True Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This darling condo was exactly what we needed! Very well stocked, comfortable bed, very clean, and the area was perfect! Whole foods less than 5 minute walk, great shopping, hardly needed our car. As Austin doesn't have Uber or Lyft anymore, a new company is picking up where they called Fare! They were great and with hardly any wait. Continental Club is a must (headliners don't start until 10ish) and for Blues, we loved The Chuggin' Monkey! So much music and talent, great job Austin! We loved our first visit!

Wonderful Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed here and LOVED it! We were in Austin for approximately 9 days to celebrate our anniversary. The condo was perfectly located within walking distance to all the action on 6th street as well as Whole Foods, lots of local eateries, and parks/outdoor activities. We walked 4-7 miles daily and occasionally used Uber when it was too hot or too far. This location really can't be beat - near everything! The condo is clean, well decorated, and stocked with essential items. It was just like the online description. The property manager was quick to respond to emails during our stay and the condo instructions for accessing it upon arrival were easy to follow. We would highly recommend this property to other "erudite urbanites!"
