About Lupe Gomez

Am a senior female native Austinite retired from Tx State Gov & registered with Employee Retirement System of TX (ERS). I very much like to travel, myself, and like to think I am turning over the unit in the same manner I like to receive one when gallivanting the world. I have been hosting short term rentals for about 10 yrs now and have two other rentals. The photo includes my son, who holds a graduate degree in interior design. He helped me to arrange unit contents. I take pride in my properties and do my utmost to check them out on a regular basis and keep them in good condition.

Lupe Gomez purchased this condo in 1997

Why Lupe Gomez chose Central Austin

Condo is very cute with all amenities, a joy to experience and ideally located. It doesn't get much better than this. No one lives in unit full time so it is not cluttered with personal items, but still equipped to give a home feel to it. The balcony & Six windows offer great views. The wooden floors and unit's pristine condition are appealing, not to mention the clean and comfortable bed. Much love and attention is invested in unit by owners. The location is in a neighborhood with much character; neighbors and residents are friendly. Hyde Park is considered a desirable area of Austin, centrally located to downtown and UTA. I am available at all times, should a concern develop, or if guests have any questions. Many establishments within walking distance, live theater, too.

What makes this condo unique

VIEWS, LOCATION, PARKING. Great views from inside and out. Centrally located, assigned covered parking (though a car is not necessarily needed given). Unlimited wifi; full cable tv. Italian leather sofa. Electric fireplace.. Research has convinced me that there is not a better property of this kind for the rate we ask. Community park/pool & tennis court is nearby (Shipe Park). Please excuse a few notes posted around unit meant to avoid mishaps &to help manage unit. Thank you for understanding. Many businesses, ie, boutiques, pizza parlors, coffee shops, grocery stores,, spas, parks, and almost any type of business is relatively close. Friendly neighborhood with great appeal. We try to be flexible with check in and check out times, so long as it can be worked around other tenants hecking in or out.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This rental is a great place for a couple or small family. Very close to everything you want to be near in Austin. Location is great, you are within walking distance to a number of food and bar options. Also it's a quick ride to downtown Austin and centrally located just north of campus. Easy to find and access the unit. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Lupe was easy to contact for any issues. Overall it was a great weekend in Austin.

Nice enough place but no real communal pool

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was nice enough, although I don't think it appropriate to put handwitten notes on tape on items to provide instructions about things to do or places you cannot sit. The covered, assigned parking and guest spaces were great. I did not need a second bathroom so there was no issue with having one bathroom. However, I expected a pool and asked about it. The owner did not respond until I left and sent me an unpleasant email claiming I just wanted to complain. She also indicated that there were community, city or school pools I could find if I had googled them. Frankly, I don't think adding a public, paid pool as an amenity to your listing is appropriate at all. I have stayed in other homes and condos and never had a problem at all.

Comfy Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is tastefully furnished; very comfortable bed. The location is perfect for walking or catching the bus one block away. Not noisy even though it's on a main street. Lupe is wonderful and attentive to your needs. I will definitely stay here again.
