About Chris

I grew up in NW Indiana outside of Chicago where I retired young and now spend a lot of time in Austin. I do most of the construction work myself and I'm very detail oriented. My wife is excellent with design and decorating and I do the application (what I'm told to do.) At the end of the day we have someone that knows what to do and someone that knows how to do it.

Chris purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Chris chose Austin

The location is perfect! We are close enough to walk, yet far enough that parking isn't a problem due to the traffic visiting Congress Avenue. I include bicycles at no extra charge. I strive to make your experience enjoyable enough to want to stay again on your next visit to Austin.

What makes this apartment unique

Upscale is the best one word to describe this unit. The private outdoor picnic area is a unique bonus available at our property. You will find yourself feeling very comfortable in our apartment.

Great location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I loved this place. The location really couldn't be beat, and having the bikes available was awesome too. We didn't even need to rent a car for our stay. We used the bikes to get down to the capital and then to explore the UT campus. The apartment was spacious and modern and we felt right at home. Chris was a great host and we'd love to stay again!

Great location and value

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for my wife and I to spend our first time in Austin. It really did have everything we could possibly need (like the video said) with the kitchen supplies and even laundry. The host was welcoming and accommodating. Quiet, safe, and friendly neighborhood within a few blocks of awesome food and shops along Congress street made this a prime location. The bikes are a plus too. Totally worth it and a better value than the much more expensive hotels nearby.

Very Cool Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at anything but a hotel so we didn't know what to expect. Truth is we loved our stay. The location was great...quiet but only a couple of blocks from Congress Street. Everything we could have needed or wanted was provided in the unit. Would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic - we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible use of space, and a very responsive and helpful owner. We loved the apartment - it actually seemed larger than it appears in the pictures, and we made great use of the outdoor deck and patio areas. The bikes came in very handy navigating the crowds of SXSW. We'll be back!

Outstanding location in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My second time to stay here and I loved it just as much as my first time! So quiet, everything has been anticipated that you could possibly need. Can't think of enough nice things to say. Will be my "go to" spot for sure.
