My partner and I visited the Gateway at the end of April and stayed in the Studio room. That is in a separate space on the other side of the pool from the main house. Despite the fact that the Gateway is on a main street, the room was surprisingly quiet. The room itself was very well equipped and decorated nicely in black and white with king bed, mini fridge and bathroom with large shower. It had its own AC unit and overhead fan which we needed. The grounds are lovely with resident dogs and cat and a small but refreshing pool and great hot tub. We enjoyed spending the day exploring the city and then coming home to a swim and rewind before heading out for dinner. The house has a great location, walking distance to South Congress which has some good restaurants and fun shops as well as near some local spots that Blaise and Bess told us about. We enjoyed the ample breakfasts and fine hospitality at the Gateway. Opposite the house is a bus stop that will take you all around Austin if you don't have a car (which we did not). Would definitely recommend the Gateway for a fun and relaxing getaway.
