Easy access all the amenities that put Austin on the map! Our open floor plan studio apartment has a queen bed at one end and a kitchenette (microwave, bar sink, cabinets, dorm-style fridge, *NO STOVE*) at the other end with a living space in between.
After a day of enjoying our parks and trails or after a night of music and fun, you will retreat west of Mopac/Loop 1 to the quiet of our established residential neighborhood
The studio apartment has been our guest apartment for visiting family and friends for almost 10 years. YOU WILL NOT BE RENTING AN OWNER OCCUPIED SPACE that is vacated just for your stay. Our apartment is strictly a guest space. Please note that the apartment has angled ceilings because it was converted from attic to office and living space by the former (original) owner.
*Our studio apartment has a microwave, a small bar sink, a mini-fridge, a Keurig coffee machine, and an electric kettle. It does not have a stove.*
Zugang für Gäste
The apartment is above our home with its own private access through a clearly marked gate door. There are stairs leading up to the apartment. If climbing stairs is difficult for you, our apartment may not be a good match for you.
There is no access to the apartment from within our home.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We respect your privacy and will not interrupt your trip, however, we are here to help! After we confirm you are oriented to the apartment either in person or via Airbnb messaging (depending on both host/guest schedules) we will leave you to enjoy your stay. We have a welcome guide in the apartment that should answer many of your questions but always feel free to text or call if you have any additional questions.

Thanks for helping by following this Airbnb rule.
We are an active family of 4. Our friends tell us they can't hear us when they are upstairs. :)
We have 2 dogs and 2 indoor cats that never visit the apartment.
Check in time: 3pm. If you need an earlier check-in time, please let us know and we will do our very best to accommodate you.

**Please note that we use the Airbnb messaging system. If you don't have the Airbnb app on your phone you will want to make certain that you have access to the messaging system. Communicating via Airbnb messaging is recommended by Airbnb. It's quick and easy!**
Our neighborhood is west of Mopac. Please look at the map carefully and ask as many questions as you'd like before booking. We are a 5 minute car ride or a 10 minute bike ride from Zilker Park, however, unless you are into fitness walking - we are not what most people would consider walking distance from downtown. If you want to be right in the middle of the night-life and the music scene, our place will be too residential and quiet for you. It's a great retreat from the nightlife!
Please read these rules carefully. Thank you!
We live in a quiet, family neighborhood. If you are looking for a place to have a party, please don't request to book our apartment.
We're absolutely not against fun but we are against disturbing our neighbors. Thanks for understanding.
We do not charge a cleaning fee because our studio is small enough (~600sqft) for me to clean it to my super-tidy standards and because I want to keep the nightly rate affordable to our guests. In return, we ask that you simply be respectful and tidy. Thanks!
*If you are a smoker, I'm sorry but our apartment is not a good fit for you. SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED INSIDE OR OUTSIDE. If there is evidence of smoking, your account will be billed $300 for professional cleaning. Sending a booking request confirms acknowledgment of this policy*
Only the people who made the reservation are allowed in our apartment. If you will be a party of 2, please send the both names when you request to book.
We love pets, however, we want to keep our apartment clean and animal dander free. Pets (not even ours) are not allowed in our apartment. Thanks!
I've lived in Austin all my life and cannot imagine living anywhere else! I'm a south-side girl at heart. Grew up in the 78704 zip before it was the place to be. We've lived in a few different areas of Austin and decided to plant our roots on the (just barely) west side of town. Easy access to the parks and to downtown but with a very quiet neighborhood vibe.
We love to travel and learned early that a one hotel room vacation with two small children was less than optimal. We started renting vacation apartments and homes instead of hotel rooms and have never looked back. That was about 12 years ago. We're hooked. We are expert guests and have traveled all over the US and abroad renting directly from owners. Using all that we have learned over the years, we are excited to host guests in our own private studio apartment.
If you have a question about Austin, just ask. We are craft beer geeks, cinema lovers and we love to catch live music when we can. Oh yes, did I mention we love to eat? Austin food scene is exploding and so is my waistline. Must hit the greenbelt more often!!
Come enjoy our city! Bring a bike. Bring your family. Bring stretchy pants!
