Great Choice

Very nice back house apartment in a lovely neighborhood. Great proximity to UT campus and downtown Austin. Check in and out was a breeze and owners were quick to respond to reservation request and provided perfect directions to the apartment and tons of ideas for enjoying Austin.

Amazing great place

  • 5 of 5

This place was really great, more than enough room, and in a great neighborhood. Very safe and close to the lake. Stayed for 2 nights and i couldnt say enough positive things about our stay. If you're looking for a comfortable safe place to stay in Austin then this is the place to be.

Quiet and Convenient to UT

  • 5 of 5

Tarrytown is a wonderful neighborhood; very convenient for visiting UT, downtown, the lake or hop on 1 for a quick trip to The Domain (easy access to Enfield, Windsor, and Exposition). The apartment is quiet and has everything needed for a comfortable stay. Plenty of street parking, good WiFi, clean, well-supplied. Thank you for a great stay while visiting my student for Moms' weekend.
