About the Property

800 sq ft 1 bed/1 bath - Easy access to University of Texas and Downtown

Our guest apartment is tucked away in an incredibly quiet and walkable location within our bustling city. We are a short 1-minute walk from some of Austin’s best coffee shops and eateries as well as a city park, playground and pool, a historic sculpture museum, bike routes, and major bus lines. We are just over a mile from the University of Texas and about 3 ½ miles from downtown Austin.

Our apartment is light and bright with wood floors, high ceilings, and high-end designer finishes. We purchased and renovated the main house in 2010 and added the addition, including the guest apartment, in 2014. We designed the apartment with friends and family in mind, wanting a comfortable, inviting place for them to stay on their many visits to Austin. The apartment is attached to our home with a dedicated private entrance off of the alley/parking area behind our home.

Being avid travelers and vacationers ourselves, we have stocked the apartment with all of the necessities of home, and all of the luxuries of vacation travel.

Upon your arrival, the SMEG refrigerator will be stocked with ice cold Topo Chicos and a selection of local Austin beers. Welcome to Austin – Cheers!
