About Chris

I grew up in NW Indiana outside of Chicago where I retired young and now spend a lot of time in Austin. I do most of the construction work myself and I'm very detail oriented. My wife is excellent with design and decorating and I do the application (what I'm told to do.) At the end of the day we have someone that knows what to do and someone that knows how to do it.

Chris purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Chris chose Austin

The location is perfect! We are close enough to walk, yet far enough that parking isn't a problem due to the traffic visiting Congress Avenue. I include bicycles at no extra charge. I strive to make your experience enjoyable enough to want to stay again on your next visit to Austin.

What makes this apartment unique

Upscale is the best one word to describe this unit. The private outdoor picnic area is a unique bonus available at our property. You will find yourself feeling very comfortable in our apartment.

Great location-very modern!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend in January 2017 and couldn't have been happier. The owner is very communicative and accommodating, and the space is perfect for 2-3 people. Very modern and up-do-date, comfortable bed, and incredible location just a few blocks from South Congress. There are two bikes provided with your stay, which we loved to use to get all around town. The neighborhood is great to walk through. Couldn't have been happier and highly recommend!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We would stay here again in a second! The location is amazing, we could walk to most of the things we wanted to do and the few that required a ride were no more than a mile or two away. The thing that sets this property apart though is the small details. The bathroom has a hair dyer, soap, shampoo and conditioner. There is a binder with things to do around town, the bus schedules and restaurants by food type. There is everything you need in the kitchen from a cooler to head to festivals with to water bottles to take on a hike. My favorite part was how incredibly clean it was, even more so than most hotels I have stayed in. Chris was amazing, we got there early and he didn't mind us going in a few hours before our check in time. We also planned on leaving at checkout but he told us to take our time since no one was coming in after us. Great space at a great price!

The BEST spot in SoCo!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect ~ perfectly located, perfectly welcoming and comfortable, perfectly private. We will absolutely stay here again when we return to Austin, no questions! It's located just a few minutes walk from South Congress near plenty of great local restaurants and shops. Having the use of the bikes was great when we wanted to venture further; the property is also close to the rapid bus to downtown, which we took advantage of several times - no need for a car! We loved the private outdoor space ~ it was so nice to come "home" after a long day and kick back and relax in comfort.

We had the chance to meet the owner when we arrived ~ he was very friendly and offered suggestions on restaurants and getting around Austin, all of which were spot on! We had a few questions during our stay and he always responded quickly.

Specific likes:

Full kitchen with plates, utensils, etc.

Washer and dryer with soap and dryer sheets.

Private deck and private outdoor space with picnic table and grill. Bonus - mural painted by local artist.

Bluetooth speaker to use outdoors.

TV in living room and bedroom.

Plenty of space and hangers for clothing (just watch your head on the low walls).

Bottom line: this property is even better than advertised and we can't recommend it enough!
