About the property

Where 'Old' Austin meets 'New' Austin: Keeping Austin Weird

Tucked away, yet ideally located to enjoy ACL, SXSW, and all the central Austin festivals. If you’re headed to Formula 1, the Abbey is an easy 20 minute ride. Now with Google Fiber 1Gbps (1000 Mb) internet (wifi-only) and TV.

Charming 1937 cottage recently renovated and ready for your Austin experience. The Abbey can accommodate 2-10 people. Rent the cottage, rent the apartment, or rent both.

The studio is a walk-out basement that feels like a loft. Steel I-beams in the ceiling and acid etched concrete floors and walls give it a uniquely urban vibe. Windows on three sides keep it light and bright. Super comfy king-size bed, and a queen –size sofa sleeper “hide-a-bed” accommodate 4 adults easily. There’s a 20 inch HDTV. The dining table seats 4. The kitchen is outfitted with all the basics pots, pans, glassware,

and dishes for cooking and dining. Appliances include electric stove, microwave, fridge, toaster, Bosch dishwasher, and Bosch washer/dryer making a longer-term stay a pleasure. All linens are provided for your stay. The studio bath has a shower (no tub). Mini-split AC provides heating and cooling.

The studio is completely separate from the upstairs property, and guests have full and -complete access to the studio apartment. The Studio also has its own driveway for off-street parking, and a small patio area in front of the studio.

Guests will receive a code to access the property at an agreed upon check-in time and date. There may be guests staying in the upstairs house if the owner is away. We encourage you to be friendly and share your Austin experiences, but respectful that some guests may prefer their privacy.

Aubergine Abbey is only a couple of minutes from South Lamar, a very hip, happening part of Austin. You’ll be just minutes from the Broken Spoke, Austin’s world famous honky-tonk, or head towards downtown to catch bands at The Saxon Pub, or The One to One Club. Have cocktails at the Odd Duck, beer and tasty treats at Barley Swine, tapas at Barlata, taco’s at Torchy’s, grab a coffee at Irie Bean coffeehouse or dolmas at Phoenicia Bakery. Catch a movie at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. There is so much more, but you must come explore for yourself.

Public transportation exists in theory in Austin, but you will be much happier with a car, or even better, a bicycle. We are a Car2Go town, if you think you’ll only need a car occasionally. Bicycle rentals abound. We recommend Bicycle Sport Shop or Barton Springs Bike rental.

Right around the corner is the Texan Market convenience store, Randall’s supermarket, or venture a little further and pickup groceries at the fabulous Central Market or the Wheatsville Co-op organic grocer. Manchaca Road boasts two very non-generic convenience stores, The Texan Market and Live Oak Market. Great beer, wine, and unique snack options with some interesting folks manning the registers.

Also, I have been told that the sofa bed mattress is more comfortable when placed on the rug.

Check In Time is: 4:00pm

Check Out Time is: 11:00am

Make yourself at home. We like folks to enjoy our town, and we love being a part of your Austin experience.

This is a residential neighborhood, so noise curfews kick in at 10 o’clock.

Don’t forget, others may be staying in the upstairs, so please be considerate of other guests.

We liked the space. The king size bed was roomy & comfortable. We appreciated the laundry facilities. It's in a good neighbourhood (south Lamar), easy to get around. We LOVE Austin!

My family and I had a great stay! Loved having the ability to do laundry. Place was very clean and quiet. Lovely park close by for the boys to play. Fabulous little home away from home!

Cozy perfect Austin hideaway with open plan full kitchen and living room, comfy beds!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Austin saying goodbye to the City with our daughter who is moving to CA to work in Silicon Valley after 9 yrs of enjoying Austin life. We were on the go day and night touring the city and eating out, driving in the Hill Country, but this was always a perfect place to return to for sleep and rest. The bed had a thick topper and was super comfy, best pillows!, great kitchen with stainless counters, roomy fun open loft like space. The pics don't do it justice... the owner did a great job with lighting and furniture. Great price too and in the part of town we love... close to Downtown and pretty neighborhoods for walking. Our daughter lived in Bouldin so we were close by. We live in a house of windows at home...and enjoyed the quiet of this space... esp in a huge storm that came through and rocked Austin our first night!

Great Austin location

  • 5 of 5

This South Lamar space was in a great location to explore Austin and beyond. The owner offered great tips for local food and shopping, and we had a great time exploring the area with our kids. It's definitely a studio, but it's in a sort of L-shape, which offers a little separation between the spaces. It was great to be able to heat up leftovers and do some laundry!

Austin highlights included eating at Matt's El Rancho and Magnolia Cafe; watching the bats at the Congress St bridge; and exploring SoCo, the Capitol, and McKinney Falls SP. We can't wait to come back!

Unique Austin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Aubergine Abbey was an easy access from where we would be in Austin. Neat, clean, and everything we needed plus kitchen and washer/dryer. Owner was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed.

We will be back again!!

Nice place with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Very nice open feel space and very clean. Neighborhood was nice with lots of trees. Only suggestion I would have is to mount a full length mirror somewhere. Would definitely stay here again.
