Treehouse Apt, Cute Converted Attic Apt. Above a House near DT parks

Bedrooms 1
Space 600 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 30 nights


About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The Garden St. Treehouse Apartment is a wonderful getaway for 1-4 people. It's reasonably priced for weekly and monthly, though I do prefer 3 night minimum stays if possible. It's a converted attic above a house.

One comfy queen bed with a skylight over the bed to look at the stars, one full size bed in the living room area and one additional curvy purple couch gives the apartment plenty of room and an extra sleeping area. It has a full kitchen with convection and microwave over, gas burners, a full size fridge and a skylight over the kitchen counter.

In the beautiful bathroom, a clawfoot tub/shower awaits you with a skylight to look at the trees and stars.

The large deck outside complete with a table and chairs, surrounded by trees, gives the apartment a treehouse feel whether you are inside or out. The north facing windows to the deck, let in comforting light perfect under the rooftop of the outdoor deck.

Beautifully remodeled and large converted attic, give the Treehouse a feeling of getting away from it all. In a quiet neighborhood, in the trees, birds chirp... a lookout to the world.

Perfect Austin spot!

  • 5 of 5

The treehouse is charming and clean. The owner is very responsive and attentive. The neighborhood is great! Full of helpful residents, and good food within walking distance. Would sleep 4 comfortably. The price is quite reasonable for the space and convenience. Would stay there again!

Well appointed loft apartment in leafy suburbs of Austin Texas

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this loft apartment. It was clean, roomy and airy and met all our needs. The kitchen had all the necessary utensils, pots and pans. The fridge was big and roomy. Cleaning products were also left for our use. In the bathroom there were plenty of towels. Past reviews complained about the sloping ceilings but we got used to them very quickly and they were not a problem.We loved the deck and enjoyed breakfast, sun downers and evening meals on it. There were a few mosquitoes but all the windows and the door have nets so the windows can be opened without letting the mosquitoes in. The air conditioning is very effective but we liked to turn it off and open all the windows.

The location of the apartment to downtown Austin is great. It is within walking distance of two bus routes and sometimes when we missed the last bus back at night we walked home and it felt very safe. Paprika was great to communicate with and before our arrival gave us detailed instructions about how to find and access the apartment and where to park the car. We really enjoyed the varied live music scene in Austin which was all free. All in all we had a great time and if we ever return to Austin we will definitely book this apartment again.

Cute and Cozy Treehouse!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at this little spot and absolutely loved it! The treehouse was very cozy and a perfect size for the 2 of us. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. The area itself has lots of fun and interesting spots close by and just a short car ride to other hot spots. I would definitely stay here again!

Quiet attic in a location close to everything

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this converted attic apartment was great. Quiet, restful. The space is larger than it looks in the photos, although the roof is angled more steeply than I had thought. The full fridge and stovetop were great for making all my meals there, rather than eating out. The location is central to everything, although I'd recommend having a car. A great getaway - clean and quiet with prompt, attentive owners. Thank you!

Quiet, comfortable and clean!!

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad to have found this unique apartment. It was my first experience with VRBO and I am looking forward to the next one! I was provided clear, explicit instructions to access the property. When I arrived, the place was clean and cool. We enjoyed the deck as the weather was beautiful for our visit and I also enjoyed the bathtub. Found everything we needed in the kitchen and the owner was in touch in case we needed anything.

I would highly recommend this location.

Great stay - cool place!

  • 5 of 5

I had a conference downtown and it was a great excuse to get back home to Austin. The treehouse is a charming, unique apartment with plenty of natural light from the skylights. The kitchen was well appointed and my wife especially loved the claw footed tub. The weather only allowed for one night on the deck, but it was very peaceful. I see some reviewers were concerned about the bathroom ceiling, but the slope was not an issue for my wife and I as we are both just under 6'. Check in was very easy and Pete was great to work with. Highly recommend this space!

About Connie 'Paprika' Leaverton

I travel quite a bit and when I'm gone I rent out the apartment. It's above a house on the happenin' east side of Austin. It's located 1.5 miles to downtown, close to hip bars, coffee shops, music, parks and Lady Bird Lake and that is why I purchased it in 2001.

The clawfoot tub is awesome, located below a skylight so you can look up to the trees and sky.

Enjoy your stay and let me know if you have any questions!


Connie 'Paprika' Leaverton purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Connie 'Paprika' Leaverton chose East Downtown

This apartment is located just 2 blocks to the hike and bike trail and Town Lake/ Lady Bird Lake. I really enjoy the outdoors, so wanted to be as close as possible to the water and park system. Downtown is also 5 minutes away where you will find the entertainment district, music, restaurants from around the world and so much more.

The apartment is unique, built a few years ago. It was a huge attic space that I converted into a full apartment with a kitchen, a full bath, 3 skylights and a deck in the trees. It's unique and special, and has a flare for the unusual.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a romantic getaway with uniqueness throughout. It's home away from home, with playful amenities and access to downtown. Authentic Mexican food await you 3 blocks away at Juan in a Million, and vegetarian Mexican food is located 5 blocks away at Mr. Natural. Counter Culture, a new Vegan Restaurant is walking distance and yummy! Various bars and East 6th St. close with counter-culture life and many choices of food. Downtown so close too.

The east austin area has a wonderful Mexican influence with its colorful houses and culture awaiting you. An eclectic blend of artists, parks, downtown access and an interesting history all within moments to the parks and pools only 2 blocks away.


Car: not necessary

1.5 miles east of downtown and Convention Center, 1 block off of Ceasar Chavez with many shops and cafes. Located not far from E. 6th, bus stops very close, hike and bike trails to downtown and miles around Austin area. Lady Bird Lake 2 blocks, beautiful area. Quiet neighborhood and close to everything you need.
