    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    (License #114332) This urban retreat is nary a mile from downtown Austin and tucked away in one of Austin's oldest neighborhoods. You're close enough to walk about town or to SoCo if you'd like. The studio apartment is both modern and has a bit of old world charm at the same time since the property is about 70 years old. For the money it's much better than a similarly-priced hotel room anywhere in Austin. There's plenty of room, a private patio in the back and top-quality linens to make your stay a comfortable one.

    This large, contemporary studio apartment just south of the river is urban living at its best. This newly-constructed home away maintains an exterior old world flagstone charm, but with modern amenities. The property is canopied by 100-year-old Live Oak tree...

    - 1.5 miles to the 2nd, 4th and 6th Street districts downtown
    - 1.7 miles to the Capitol
    - 1.5 to ~2 miles you'll find at least three museums

I like to give the pros and cons of every place I stay because I feel it's the fairest way to give the owners the credit they deserve while also informing other travelers what they can realistically expect. I would say for the price I paid (just under $100/night including taxes and cleaning fees) I was happy with my stay.... more

If you're looking to avoid the hotel route like we were and really just wanted to feel like you're staying at home or a relative's place this is it. Well appointed, comfy, superb location to dining and attractions. Slept well and it was quiet. more

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in Austin. We very much enjoyed the city which was easily accessible on foot or by bus from the apartment. We were also able to pick up the lovely (and busy!) running path that goes all around the river just outside the accommodation. The apartment was a superb base and a relaxing... more
