No one lives in unit on regular basis; owners live off-premise, but did live in it for 4 yrs so know the value of the accommodations. One blk to laundromats,; restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and Central Market nearby. Over-nighting has been enjoyed by many; most are delighted with the unit, but all occupants are at the very least pleased with it. We do our utmost to make it comfortable & keep it in immaculate condition. We don't mind providing refs; will ask for same. Complex relatively quiet as university housing gos. No smoking/loud parties allowed on or around premises. Only registered guests allowed to overnight & visitors are asked to be kept at a min. E-mails promptly replied to.

The unit is within walking distance of UT, which is a leading university with lots of things to do and see. It is easy to get to the condo from airport (ie city bus, shuttle or taxi). Public Community park/poo (Shipe Park) on 4400 Ave G, and easy walk or direct bus transport.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Am a 68 yo female native Austinite retired from Tx State Gove & registered with Employee Retirement System of TX (ERS). Like to Travel and am intent on turning over the unit in the same manner I like to receive one when gallavanting the world. I have been doing short term rentals for about 9 yrs now and have 2 other rentals.

Why the Owner Chose North University:
Condo is very cute with all amenities, a joy to experience and ideally located. It doesn't get much better than this. No one lives in unit full time so it is not cluttered with personal items, but equipped to give a home feel to it. The balcony & many windows offer great views. The wooden floors and pristine condition are appealing, not to mention the clean and comfortable bed. The location is in a neighborhood with much character; neighbors and residents are friendly. It helps that I take good care of the place.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There is Wifi; full cable tv and assigned covered parking, though a car is not necessarily needed. The views are great. Research has convinced me that there is not a better property of this kind for the rate we ask. Community park/pool nearby (Shipe Park). Please excuse a few notes posted around unit meant to avoid mishaps & help manage unit (Thank you for understanding.
