Why Christina Shapter chose Austin

We work really hard to make our units unique! There is an artistic touch everywhere you look. Not to mention, it's the best neighborhood in Austin. One mile from the heart of what makes Austin great!

What makes this studio unique

We have a beautiful neighborhood lined with trees and rolling hills. I sometimes forget how close we are to downtown because we're surrounded by a nature reserve area known as Blunn Creek.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is so much bigger in person. We had a wonderful stay! The windows, the artistic tile work and the unbelievable waterfalls and gardens are well worth every dime!

Amazing location, awesome property

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house was awesome. Less than a mile from south congress and all the great shops and restaurants. The actual house is so cool! Colorful and fun. Everything we needed was there. The property was beautiful and private for the most part. Far enough away from the hustle bustle of the city and surrounded by green plants and the running water in the pond in the backyard is so relaxing, but we were never more than 4 minutes from the closest Uber. We will definilty be back.

Perfect space for our trip!

  • 5 of 5

We totally loved this studio space. The grounds were so charming and offered the right atmosphere for our group of women to meet and hold a happy hour. I highly recommend this place for people who are looking for something off the beaten path with the flavor of old Austin creativity. It is located very close to downtown in a peaceful neighborhood. The space had everything we needed and the beds were comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Quirky Austin Artist's Loft

  • 5 of 5

My family of six stayed comfortably in this studio apartment for the weekend. The loft is decorated very creatively - the kids loved the bathroom and shower. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of extra linens for the kids to sleep on the comfy sofas. The back of the property is stunning - I wish we had taken pics with the kids in the back yard. We are so impressed with this beautiful, light and airy studio. Thanks to Christina & Andrew for opening your home to our family!
