Perfect Location! Everything We Needed!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Chris' apartment. Truly a hidden gem. The location is a short walk to the South Congress Avenue, which is one of my favorite areas of ATX. There's great food, cook alt shops, and friendly people everywhere. $5$10 uber rides wherever you need to go.

The space itself was perfect. Very comfortable bed. AC units in the living room and bedroom kept the space cool. Every drawer and cabinet is labeled, so it's easy to find what you need. The kitchen is fully stocked with appliances. There's a grill outside if you'd' prefer to grill/cook your own meals.

Did not meet Chris as he was away on business, but the communication and check-in/out process could not have been easier. He allowed us to check-in early and check-out late. That type of flexibility is nice!

All-in-all, I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting ATX. I know I'll be trying to stay here each time I come back.

Great apartment in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend with our almost 2 year old daughter. We were able to walk everywhere and enjoy all that Austin has to offer because of the excellent location. The apartment is small but updated and provided all the convenience needed for a short stay.

The owner, Chris, is very friendly and responds quickly to any questions. He was able to accommodate us at the very last minute which helped alleviate a lot of stress.

Overall wonderful experience!

First Trip To Austin

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Austin couldn't have been more perfect. We got in late on a Friday evening and the electronic entry made it a breeze once we got there. The apartment was beautiful and modern. It had an extremely efficient layout and stocked with everything we could possibly need. We loved that drawers/cabinets were labeled so we didn't have to look around for anything. The location was incredible-we walked a lot. The location is only a few blocks to South Congress Ave. The owner, Chris, was extremely helpful. Hopefully our next trip to Austin is soon, and hopefully this gem is available when we go back! We would love to stay again!

Perfect SoCo Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Chris and family for sharing your beautiful home with us! My husband and I wanted to experience Austin in its true spirit and your place provided just that and more. We enjoyed the close proximity to South Congress and downtown. Food, music, art, bats, and beverages! The seclusion was relaxing while being just blocks from all the 'hustle'. Very warm and inviting with more amenities than expected. We'd love to visit you again! Great neighborhood and experience! Very clean and secure spot! We even caught an unexpected fireworks show (that was blocks away) from the balcony one evening. A great trip for us - thank you again!
