This 1100 sq ft place is the entire (private) upstairs of a 2 story, extremely charming, craftsman style home in south Austin, built in 1938. Very open feeling, vaulted ceilings, cozy third floor loft and a large balcony overlooking a large, lovely garden yard and fire pit in 78704. Furnished beautifully with great beds, wonderful art and beautiful comfy furniture.
The home has been renovated but retains much of the original charm and is furnished in a turn of the century craftsman style. It's a very, cool space, absolutely comfy, with tons of natural daylight and a pretty view off the back deck.
The space is owned by a local artist who loves and cares for the home. He lives in another house on the large property, and his friend lives in the lower level of the house - that's me... It's friendly. We're both long time Austinites happy to share our space and local infos to give you an awesome experience.
The Bouldin Creek neighborhood is very charming historic area that is just south of downtown; a mixture of sweet older bungalows and a showcase for many contemporary architects . You'll have a lot of options within walking distance and it's a sweet 30 minute walk to downtown - a really nice way to begin or end an evening.
The people here are mixed between older residents and young families. A walk through the neighborhood reveals cute lush home gardens and friendly people... and their dogs. Oh yah... theres a roaming band of wild Quaker parrots and a herd of peacocks that live down the street at the historic Green Pastures Restaurant.

There are too many awesome restaurants and boutique businesses to list them all, I'll give you timely recommendations when you're here, including the most trendy and the most not-trendy-but-worth-your-time places and events. And oh gawd, the food trucks are everywhere... 5 blocks east of here you'll find South Congress Avenue with more shopping, bars and restaurants and events. And then there's south Lamar in the other direction. It's exploded with new businesses. It's a 20 minute walk to the Alamo Drafthouse and movie theatre on South Lamar, a great selection of bars and restaurants and a local pop culture museum.
Also within walking distance you can access the trails of the Bouldin Creek greenbelt, the Shambala Meditation Center, we are about a mile from Auditorium Shores, the Long Center, Palmer Auditorium and Lady Bird Lake that runs through the center of town and of course the legendary Barton Springs!! Gillis pool is a block away and Big Stacey geothermal heated pool is near too. The ride to downtown and the east side is 2-10 minutes depending on traffic, about $5-$10 with a ride share.
The bus stop is one block away, the local grocery store is about 5 blocks away, and it's easy to bike or cab it from here to almost anywhere. If you have a car parking won't be a problem. It's also an easy drive to and from the airport.
