About Mark Feist

The property owner has lived all over the world. He enjoys people of every color and ethnicity. He settled in Austin 18 years ago and knows the city very well. He has been known to have a glass of wine and share his local knowledge on occasion.

Why Mark Feist chose Austin

This property is in Aldridge Place between the university and Hyde Park. It was Austin's first planned development with many of the homes designated as historic. One of the most notable features is Adams / Hemphill Park that runs through it's center. The history of Adams-Hemphill Park dates to 1912, when Lewis Hancock (1856-1920) donated more than two acres along Hemphill Creek for use as a park. Hancock, who served as mayor of Austin from 1895-1897, was an influential figure at the turn of the twentieth century. Developer of the Austin Country Club and the namesake of Hancock Center, Lewis Hancock donated the land for Hemphill Park when he began selling tracts of land in the Aldridge Place neighborhood in 1912.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has been restored to it's original state other than the addition of new carpet, electricity, and plumbing. It has all the original built ins, windows, kitchen and bath tile. This neighborhood enclave is unique in Austin and a pleasure to explore while strolling the park.

Quiet, clean, convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a great location to visit the UT campus and play Austin tourist with my daughter! Despite the unseasonable heat for June, the apartment was very comfortable with a main living area window unit and a bedroom window unit. The bedroom has a ceiling fan which is a necessity in Texas. The apartment is perfectly located to walk to Central Market for breakfast and lunch items. It was a very easy drive to the campus (we drove bc of the heat, not the distance) as well as to the Austin American Statesman Parking lot to see the Congress Ave bats, Barton Springs, South Congress St, Graffiti Park, etc. The apt is clean, comfortable, very quiet, very safe, has a nice carport to use, and is in a tree filled beautiful historic neighborhood. Thanks Mark for a great Austin getaway location!

Nice Place. Nice Host. Good Neighborhood. Good Value.

  • 4 of 5

Was a great location for us, as we like to walk/uber instead of renting a car. Close to pubs, parks, tennis courts, markets. Small, but functional kitchen was good when we didn't want to eat out. Netflix streaming was nice when we did not want to go to a club. Only downside was bathroom (anemic hot water and toilet that took forever to fill).

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and we appreciate the review and valuable input! Our water heater is only 2 years old - I will check the temperature setting and the fill valve!

A visit back in time

  • 5 of 5

For me this was like staying at Grandma's house but with more electrical outlets and a MUCH more comfortable bed. All I needed for a comfortable stay. The location was convenient to central Austin. Mark was very responsive and friendly. I will gladly stay again.
