Property description

Please note that nightly rates will vary for Special Weekends such as UT Graduation, ROT Rally, 4th of July, UT Home Football Games, SXSW and ACL.
* Condo is licensed for short term rental required by the City of Austin.

A+ location in the heart of downtown next door to Hilton Hotel & Austin Convention Center. 2 bedroom/2 bath condo with classy, comfortable furniture, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and comes fully furnished. This is my downtown Austin second home and it's walking distance to everything in the downtown area including Alamo Drafthouse Theaters, hundreds of restaurants & bars plus the pride of the city - Lady Bird Lake Hike & Bike Trail. The outside photos here are taken from our front door. One can literally walk across the street and be at the convention center. The location is in the heart of downtown!!!

Hotel rooms are small, stale, and boring. Plus, hotels add parking costs. Call around the hotels downtown and find this unit is much larger, a real home, and less $. Keep Austin Weird is the motto of this city so take an opportunity to live in a home-type setting while being in this great city! This is a 2 bedroom with queen beds and 2 full bathrooms plus a sleeper sofa in the living area so it can accommodate 6 adults. Living area has flat panel TV with full cable (about 75 channels) and WiFi access. No car is needed if you want a pedestrian friendly opportunity but if you rent a car, then secured/gated parking (1 car) is available on site. Sound proof windows added to bedrooms in October of 2012.

30 Jun 10 - hi Don,this is marilyn g. from england. myself,husband and two friends stayed in your condo for five nights last week. all of us thought the condo was perfect, the location was in the heart of town but surprisingly quiet.We can not find one fault with the condo and would highly recommend it,spotless,cool in the hot climate,equipped with everything you could want.Fantastic value,much better than a hotel room,we loved it .thanks again,Marilyn.

'We loved Austin & your Downtown place was perfect for walking to bars, restaurants and stuff to do. 4 of us came for a wedding and long weekend. I'd recommend it to anyone.' -Steve M. (Fort Worth)

'Classy condo, awesome location, cool city! Can't wait to make it back to Austin' -Jeff C. (LA)

'Had a blast for an all girls weekend! Downtown Austin is Hot!!!! We'll be back to stay in your place again.' Tanya M. (Tulsa)

'Perfect locale for attending convention as convention center was across the street. My family was able to tour and enjoy Austin while I attended a conference. I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Austin for business or vacation.' Rudy R. (Washington DC)

'The condo was wonderful. The location was perfect...I really miss the hike and bike trail and went down there for a few hours each morning. We miss Austin, and this place really let us enjoy our hometown to its fullest. In the heat of the day, we really enjoyed the TV...food channel and that crazy CashCab show! The directions you gave for check in and check out were very clear. We'll recommend this spot to others, and we'll definately look you up next time we come to visit. Hopefully, that will be soon.'

Take care,
Ellen

Hi,
I just wanted to let you know how well things turned out for us in Austin. The location for the stay was perfect, right in the 'hub bub', could walk most anywhere without difficulty. One of the things I liked best about the Condo, was that it was so clean and totally ready for us. I traveled with my 92 year Mom, so at best everything was difficult. She was able to have her own bedroom, next to the bathroom, so this worked out great. Also, she was able to have her own space and rest when necessary.
You have excellent taste in decorating, simple but elegant. It felt like 'home'.
Thank you again for everything, it all went very smoothly.
Hated the humidity, but everyone was so friendly and helpful. That doesn't happen in California. Everyone was just so nice.
Thanks Again,
Joyce W.


'Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your condo. The place was perfect. Our family of three came in to Austin from Cabo San Lucas so that I could have minor knee surgery. After the surgery, I needed to lay in bed for a couple of days to recover. The layout of the condo worked to perfection. With the full size kitchen we were able to stock up on groceries and not be forced to eat out every day. However when we did eat out, there were some of our favorite restaurants within walking distance. Also having the second bedroom allowed my family to sleep while allowing me enough space to keep my leg elevated while sleeping. We were also able to put our daughter to bed and stay up watching TV. If we were in a hotel room we would not have been able to do that without waking her up. We travel to Austin often to visit friends and family and your condo offers us a place of our own with lots of space and without the expense of a hotel. We will be booking again soon. Thanks again for everything.'
