Cozy Tree House in East Austin! Enjoy the best neighborhood Austin has to offer! Cozy garage apartment with wood floors, covered deck and walking distance to Lady Bird Johnson Lake with hike and bike trails, downtown Austin and many restaurants and bars.

This space features a private bedroom with queen bed, tub, a separate kitchen, living area and a covered deck. A sofa bed in the living area offers sleeping arrangements for up to two more people. The spacious bathroom features a claw foot tub and pedestal sink stocked with fresh white towels for your stay. The fully equipped kitchen offers refrigerator, range, dishes, glassware, silverware, a few pans, blender, coffee maker, toaster and microwave. A stackable washer/dryer is available for your longer stays. In the winter you’ll have a slight view of downtown Austin.

Other than the occasional dog barking, it's actually very quiet and secluded in the middle of all the fun. Most mornings you’ll wake up to birds singing and roosters crowing. Coffee on the covered deck is delightful and perfect for people watching.

This location is ten blocks away from downtown and a little more quiet. UT Austin is less than three miles away and the Austin Convention Center is less than one and a half miles away. The bus stop is two blocks away at Holly Street and Chicon. Move south and you will find the hike and bike trail that will lead you to all sorts of adventures. Move north and you will find the vibrant East 6th Street bar and restaurant scene. Just one block away you will find the best healthy Mexican food money can buy at Mr. Natural’s and specialty cocktails at Weather Up. There is also a corner store nearby.

If you are bringing a car we have a private parking space for you! Up for traveling around Austin without a car? This location is eight blocks away from the commuter rail line, a $5 cab/pedi ride from downtown and walking distance to so much! More restaurants and trailer food than can be listed are in the area and entertainment abounds! This place is close to everything Austin!

The apt was well maintained. Very good bathroom and kitchen (with washer/dryer) facilities. The apartment was just right for our needs and we loved the neighborhood. Close to neat restaurants and bars and ladybird lake. We found it was an easy walk to downtown . Do you want to sell the property? I'd be interested.

Reviewer Comments:

If you're looking for a great central spot that's close to the river, eclectic spots and restaurants, and food trucks, this is a great spot to park your behind. I stayed here for a full week with my dog and there was plenty of space to enjoy. I liked that the bedroom, living room, and kitchen were all separate and cozy, I spent a lot of time in each. The deck is nice spot to enjoy a coffee and/or do some work. This is certainly a "don't judge a book by it's cover" place. The outside area leaves some to be desired and there isn't much privacy with the close neighbor and no privacy fence. It's an emerging neighborhood with a mix of old and new homes, but I always felt safe and the property is tucked in from the street and secure. There are some annoying barking dogs that if you're ultra sensitive to may disrupt your stay. Otherwise, the host is very friendly and quick to respond and offer places to see and eat!

Reviewer Comments:

The East Side Tree House is exactly as described. The location was perfect for all the activities we had planned. We were a quick walk or bike ride away from absolutely everything we needed. The room itself was very clean and welcoming, a little oasis in our home away from home. Prior to our visit, the owner provided great suggestions of where to dine and drink. There was also a booklet in our room with many suggestions of how to spend our time in Austin. Definitely grab a quick coffee/pastry at Cuvee Coffee Bar during your stay. Also, eat as many breakfast tacos from as many food trucks as your stomach can handle!

This was our first "home away" experience and I was elated when we stepped foot into this gem! So cute and had everything we needed! Very walkable to downtown and the hiking/biking trail. We highly recommend going this route vs a hotel room.
