About Carye

Carey and Dave are well traveled and both work at a large hospital in downtown Austin. Carey is from Texas and has been in Austin since 1988, Dave is from Montana and relocated to Austin to be with Carey (and enjoy mountain biking year round!). If you would like any recommendations for outdoor activities, cycling trails, parks, etc they can help out. Two small, well-behaved dogs live in the other half of the duplex and will be seen in the gated off backyard when they choose to come out their doggie door. No barking!

Carye purchased this studio in 2006

Why Carye chose South Austin

We chose this property six years ago when the house was built because we both love cycling and wanted to be able to ride our bikes to downtown and work--20 minute leisurely ride to Town Lake, 10-15 minutes to S. Congress restaurants, Continental Club, great coffee shops and Mexican food.

What makes this studio unique

We love the location of this home and the low upkeep. Tile floors throughout keep things clean and vaulted ceilings make the area feel larger. The studio gets plenty of light, but has 2' wooden blinds and curtains if you would like to sleep late!

30 day cancellation policy for refund. If cancellation is less than 30 days we will be happy to open the calendar and re-list the studio. If the studio re-books we will be able to offer a refund.

Relaxing & Cozy Get-Away Close to Everything Austin Has to Offee!

  • 5 of 5

The comfortable and cozy studio had everything my husband and I needed for a relaxing getaway together to restore & renew while soaking up the nearby sites and sounds of Austin! Located outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown Austin, but close enough to it all to get to town in a short 10 minute drive!

The studio was quiet & the bed is SO comfortable- we both had great night sleeps! The big bathtub is perfect for a relaxing soak. The fans and window AC unit are cooling and at the same time drown out an outside noise (which we heard none of!)

Carye and her husband are most accommodating and thought of everything from phone chargers to bubble bath and coffee/Kureig coffee maker!

The studio has everything to make you feel like you're home away from home!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! It was just my husband and I and it worked great for us as we were out most of the day sightseeing and eating our way through Austin. It was very clean, quiet and we loved the location. It was close to downtown and in a quiet and safe neighborhood. Only a $10 UBER ride one-way on a Saturday night to get downtown which was cheaper and easier than parking our car down there.

The bed was comfortable and the bathroom is nice and spacious. We weren't sure about the noise machine, but ended up using it the 2nd night as we found that we don't have songbirds in Colorado like they do in Texas and they like to get up with the sun!

Carye was available and in fact, we didn't need anything from her because she is so organized with the information that we received prior to the stay and then the guidelines that she provided us once we got there. We will return when we come back to Austin. Thank you Carye!
