Property description

Vacation, business, or extended stays. Hotel bills can add up quickly on longer trips, and this South Austin location is a fun, affordable alternative. The 600 sq ft fully furnished suite has a queen-sized bed, sitting area with sofa, kitchen, bathroom, and patio overlooking a large yard shaded with beautiful big oak trees. This is a quiet, secluded spot, where the Texas sun filters through the branches of wonderful old live oaks, yet it is just a short way to all the activity of South Congress, Sixth Street, and the downtown area. City bus routes are just around the corner, so you can get around easily without a rental car in all of the central Austin area. Or you could rent a bike instead of a car -- most things are in easy biking distance

Tons of fun stuff to do within about 2 miles --- music, restaurants, shopping, hike and bike trails, strolling around Town Lake, bat-watching from the Congress Bridge, swimming at Barton Springs, local theater, art galleries. Enjoy everything Austin has to offer with a visit here! Also close and convenient access to the airport. Let us know in advance, and we'll arrange to provide service to/from the airport.

If you happen to be out in the yard in the evening, you may see some of our nocturnal residents --- a frog hopping about looking for the evening snack, an owl landing in the tree branches overhead.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

There are a few convenient transportation options for guests who will not have a car. The studio is about two and a half miles from downtown Austin, so it is a bit far to walk, but there is a bus stop just a few blocks away at the corner of Oltorf and Parker Lane.

Here is an overview of the bus routes available. For up to date information, please check the Capital Metro web site. On Sunday nights, the last bus is around 9:30 at night.

#7 Duval/Dove Springs - this route runs downtown and to the UT campus, with service until around 11:30 pm on weekdays and Saturdays

#483 Night Owl Riverside - late night service from midnight to around 3:20 am, downtown stop at 150 6th & Congress, to 2030 Oltorf, which is about 0.7 mile from the studio

#331 Oltorf - crosstown bus along Oltorf to South Congress, South 1st Street, and Lamar

#300 Govalle - this runs through east Austin, to Cesar Chavez, East 5th Street, East 7th Street

Taxis to or from downtown will cost around $10 to $15, depending on traffic.
