Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

This quaint studio apartment is nestled in the quiet neighborhood known as 'North University,' immediately adjacent to the area of 'Hyde Park.' It occupies the ground floor of a 2-story carriage house behind a World War II-era bungalow.

It is within walking distance of the neighborhood hub of Hyde Park, a center which includes several great local restaurants, an old-fashioned grocery, a coffee house and bakery, and a gelati bar. It is also within walking distance of all that the University of Texas has to offer (including the football stadium), and only 2 miles from the capitol and downtown.

The studio boasts both modern and antique furnishings, luxury linens and solid WI-fi. It has its own patio set up for outdoor lounging and also has an outdoor eating area with barbecue grill. Bikes are available on site for your use.

About Ann Giles

We are a husband and wife team that loves old houses. We were each renovating our own 1940's era home when we met. Since then, we've acquired two additional homes and had four children. We love spending time with both--keeping the houses in great shape for years to come and keeping the kids busy and fed! One of us is a native Austinite and the other has been here since 1995, so feel free to ask us anything you want to know about Austin, and we will try our best to help.

Ann Giles purchased this studio in 1995

Why Ann Giles chose Austin

This property is conveniently located near the University of Texas, yet it is not heavily populated by undergraduate students. Instead the area is home to graduate students, young professionals, families, and senior citizens. The area has a wonderful historic feel with all the mature trees and World War II era houses, most of which have been restored and are prized by their owners. The area is very close to downtown and to so many other things.

Adorable efficiency

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little property in nice neighborhood. Comfortable and convenient. Very clean! Only issue is lack of soundproofing. I could hear my upstairs neighbor unzip their luggage.

Fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here 5 nights in February. Best neighborhood in Austin. Early morning runs through the neighborhood were awesome. Information available from owner the best I've ever seen. No question left unanswered, from type of coffee maker to excellent check in and check out instructions. Bed is great, kitchen awesome and the patio delightful. Whole place the size of a large hotel room, but so much better with the kitchen and patio and laundry room next door. Furnishings are perfect for the space - good size bed, large desk, comfy couch, table for dining. Bathroom is huge with great counter space and storage. Shower door is VERY small (turn sideways to get in) but the shower is fine once inside. You do hear the upstairs residents move around. But we seemed to be on the same early to bed, early to rise schedule so we really didn't notice. The weather was beautiful while we were there, which created our only disappointment: the only windows with screens were small, high and a little awkward to open. Would have been so awesome to open up for fresh air and spring breezes, but no screens on doors or bathroom window - so when open we got bees and flies and typical spring critters. However, we had cool mornings we ran the heat and one afternoon it was hot enough to need the A/C, both worked beautifully and fast. So for typical Austin warm weather, I suppose that is more important. If you have allergies and like to be closed up with great HVAC - it's perfect. Hope we get a chance to stay here again. Best location ever, easiest in and out, immediate response to our few questions and accommodated our late check out. Ann is a great hostess.

Loved the little studio. Private, quiet, comfortable. Bicycles are maintained and available. I used one. Neighborhood is very nice and walkable to restaurants shopping and good coffee. I would stay here again.

Excellent Place Stay in Auston

  • 5 of 5

Adorable home and a great place for a couple to stay! In walking to some great restaurants. We especially appreciated that Ann allowed us to take the bikes a few hours after we checked out, so we could enjoy our afternoon and see more of this wonderful city before heading out. We would certainly return!

Great spot in Austin

  • 5 of 5

I came to this place looking for a little getaway from work and life. Knowing that I would be in the city of Austin proper, I was thrilled to be in this little cottage in an established and quiet neighborhood. Everything thing about this unfussy and functional studio was just the vacation I needed. Couldn't recommend this place more!
