About Mark Feist

The property owner has lived all over the world. He enjoys people of every color and ethnicity. He settled in Austin 18 years ago and knows the city very well. He has been known to have a glass of wine and share his local knowledge on occasion.

Mark Feist purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Mark Feist chose Austin

This property is in Aldridge Place between the university and Hyde Park. It was Austin's first planned development with many of the homes designated as historic. One of the most notable features is Adams / Hemphill Park that runs through it's center. The history of Adams-Hemphill Park dates to 1912, when Lewis Hancock (1856-1920) donated more than two acres along Hemphill Creek for use as a park. Hancock, who served as mayor of Austin from 1895-1897, was an influential figure at the turn of the twentieth century. Developer of the Austin Country Club and the namesake of Hancock Center, Lewis Hancock donated the land for Hemphill Park when he began selling tracts of land in the Aldridge Place neighborhood in 1912.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has been restored to it's original state other than the addition of new carpet, electricity, and plumbing. It has all the original built ins, windows, kitchen and bath tile. This neighborhood enclave is unique in Austin and a pleasure to explore while strolling the park.

Nice apartment in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The apartment, situated at upper floor of a house, is perfect for two people, with enough space for storing your belongings, and has all amenities needed even for a longer stay. The apartment was perfectly clean and bright. Mark was ready to provide anything we needed and gave us some useful info on touristic attractions and restaurants. All in all it was a nice experience, Note that it is rather difficult to walk from the apartment to the city center and having a car is quite useful.

Cute little apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay4 night. We didn't get a chance to let the owner know that the gas grill had little garden critters living in it, so we skipped grilling and broiled inside instead. I am sure he would have taken care of it, if we had a chance to tell him. We were happy to find a gas oven inside. Be aware, there is no fan in the hood over the oven. Being it was a gas oven, I opened the kitchen window when cooking with gas.The original bathroom and kitchen tile are very charming. The bed is very comfortable. We were able to stream itunes movies from our iphone to the apple tv inside. We were able to get into the unit a couple hours early after we cleared it with the owner. He was very accomodating. There is street parking and the owner let us park in the driveway next to the unit. The street is a "cut through" for UT students, so it can be a little busy. Use caution when backing out of driveway. The owner warned us a neighbor down the street was having a party after the UT game. They are supposed to be quiet after 10:30pm. This party was loud and lasted until 4am. Again, this was not the owner's fault at all. When we checked in, he suggested that if we were bothered by the loud party, we should call 311 and complain to the officials. He was going to call and complain if they woke him up. We ended up turning the window a/c fan 'on' and it blocked out most of the yelling on the street. Wifi was fast and we had no trouble hooking up to it. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils. I do recommend this unit.

Great location, great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the upstairs apartment for the week and it was great! The location was perfect for what we needed (access to Camp Mabry). The apartment was nice and well furnished and the owner, Mark, was very accomodating. We liked it so much, we're staying there again next week. ;-)

A fantastic apartment in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

This was the nicest VRBO I have ever stayed in. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. The air conditioning worked well (it was 108 degrees while we were there).

The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in, but what made it so luxurious were the sheets - the highest thread count I have ever experienced.

The kitchen was well stocked with gadgets should you want to make a gourmet meal. But there are so many good eating places in Austin, you probably won't use them.

I was so busy getting my daughter moved into her apartment at UT that I didn't get to meet Mark, but he answered my email questions promptly.

Looking forward to returning to Austin and staying here again!

It was not the cleanest

Bedroom window unit A/C is not adequate when it is 100 degrees. Needs a new unit

Ran out of hot water

Bed was comfortable

Need to trim back what ever is growing over fence so it does not hit you in the face on the way in and out from driveway.
