Tucked away, and 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. In town for football? The Abbey is 5 miles from UT.
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.
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.
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.
