**SXSW lowdown **
We typically book our rental in one of two ways, either the whole event, 10 nights from the 8-18, or in two 5-night halves:
Interactive March 8-13 (check out on the 13th)
Music March 13-18
We have a flat rate through VRBO for SXSW for each half. If you want the whole event, we discount it. The apartment is a short 20-minute walk to the convention center, and close to South Congress, Emo's and a bunch of places. The buses going downtown are a block away, running about every 15 minutes. Any additional nights before or after SXSW are the regular rate. Please feel free to inquire about your dates if they don't match mine. Thanks!!
(License #114332) This large, contemporary studio apartment just south of the river is urban living at its best. This recently-constructed home away maintains an exterior old world flagstone charm, but with modern amenities. The property is canopied by 100-year-old Live Oak trees, native stone walkways and is surrounded by mature gardens. The vaulted ceiling and natural light lend a feeling of spaciousness to the studio. South-facing french doors lead down to a large private patio curtained by bamboo. The apartment is located on the NE corner of the charming Travis Heights neighborhood.
The kitchen is stocked with utensils, cookware and coffee ware that would make any aficionado zippy. The apartment is well furnished with a rich mix of contemporary furniture and antiques. A large beautiful rug makes every step feel warm. We provide nice cotton bedding and bath needs. A 37" HDTV with DirecTV Now, Netflix, Amazon, etc., great private patio with lounge chairs and umbrella, broadband wi-fi, a full bath and shower with its own tankless water heater and more just to name a few features.
This vacation rental is located behind the owner's home; it sits atop the detached garage at the back of the property. You will walk through a shared patio and garden to reach the rental. You may see us, but maintain your privacy. The entire property is gated.
From the studio you can take a leisurely stroll through one of Austin's oldest neighborhoods to the shops, restaurants and people watching along South Congress, aka SoCo. Or you can easily hit the hike and bike trail, go downtown to the 2nd, 4th and 6th Street districts, the Austin Convention Center and other hot spots around town. All of these are about a mile from the apartment.
If you're coming to Austin for a short stay on your own or as a couple, this place is ideal for you. It's not big like many vrbos. It's affordable, beautiful, clean, cozy, convenient and comfortable. A reasonable cab/Uber/Lyft or $1.50 bus ride gets you downtown quickly. You're also about 15 minutes from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport if you don't feel like renting a car.
Still not convinced it's the place for you? Call for more information. We're happy to help you figure out Austin.
BE CAUTIOUS WHEN YOU CHOOSE A RENTAL
The City of Austin requires that vacation rentals and B&B's obtain a license for legal operation. Illegal operators are currently being contacted and serious enforcement and fines for non-permitted short-term rentals is active, in some cases shutting down the rentals. All STRs in Austin are also required to collect and pay a 9% city and 6% state hotel occupancy taxes. Legal operations will have their permit number on their listings and websites as required by the city.
