Property description

Welcome to Austin! From this two story open floor plan loft, you can walk to the Austin Visitor's Center, State Capitol, Town Lake, Congress Street 'Bat' Bridge, 6th Street, Convention Center, plus 100's of restaurants, shops and tourist attractions. For less than the price of one hotel room across the street, you can have our whole apartment! Come check it out!

LOCATION: This truly is a 'car optional' property. Littlefield Quarters is also a secured access building for residents and guests. For guests flying into Austin, there is a $1.50 shuttle from the airport that drops off a few blocks from this loft.

2 BEDROOM OPEN FLOOR PLAN: This apartment has two sleeping spaces upstairs with a full bath in an open floor plan. On the entry level there is a twin day bed and additional sleeping options. This popular loft has stained concrete floors, comfortable furnishings, stainless appliances, full sized kitchen, cable TV, FREE Wi-Fi and a private balcony that overlooks downtown.

DOWNTOWN LIVING: This home is right on 6th Street so you have direct access to one of the most popular streets in the 'Live Music Capitol of the World'. In addition, numerous restaurants, shops and grocery stores deliver to this building if you don't feel like going out. This is a great location and a great home for those who want to explore Downtown Austin – you can be a part of it all! However, since this is right on 6th Street, you will hear the music from the restaurants and music venues below. If you are sensitive to noise, lets talk in person to see if this is the right location for you. We do have other homes in quieter neighborhoods, including a waterfront home on Lake LBJ for a lakeside vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Downtown: “I have lived in Austin since 1979 and seen it grow and develop extensively during that time. After seeing what was out there, I decided there was a need for a home-type setting right in the middle of downtown as a true alternative to the common hotel that could provide a nice, comfortable and affordable way for my guests to really experience Austin! Even after 30 years I can still find something fun and new to do near this location; the location is perfect - you don't even need a car. You can take the elevator down to Austin’s famous 6th Street and start exploring on foot. The Austin Visitor's Center is a few blocks away if you have any questions during your visit, and we also provide a welcome packet with a few suggestions of our own. There is truly something for all ages in this home away from home.”

Manager info

About: I have other Austin vacation homes as well as a waterfront home on Lake LBJ. I felt there was a need for a home type setting right in the middle of downtown as a true alternative to the common hotel. This is a loft in a high rise that has been in Austin for over 30 years. The homes have been remodeled to be very nice but not as expensive as all the brand new urban living that has taken over downtown. I wanted a nice, comfortable and affordable way for my guests to be in the middle of it all!

Why Downtown:
This home allows visitors to see as much of Austin as possible in as little time as possible. This location is perfect - you don't even need a car. You take the elevator right down to famous 6th Street and start exploring by foot. The Austin Visitor's Center is 4 blocks away if you have any questions.
