About the property

Lovely mid-century studio in quiet neighborhood-direct route to downtown!

Our spacious, quiet, one bedroom studio is a comfortable home base for tourists and business travelers. We look forward to hosting you in our convenient, tree-lined Austin neighborhood three miles south of downtown. A bus stop one block away will take you directly to downtown, Zilker Park area, or the state capitol on the #3 Burnet/Manchaca line. We are less than one mile to Radio Brewery and Coffee with some of the best tacos in town-Veracruz All Natural! Central Market is also one mile away for gourmet food and groceries. The Full English is an eclectic British breakfast cafe and cozy coffee shop just across the street.

A plush queen-size bed and quiet neighborhood make for wonderful night’s sleep. Our walk-in closet has plenty of storage room and includes a mini-fridge, Keurig coffee maker, and a microwave for your convenience. Coffee and tea are complimentary. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening on your private patio in the shade.

We are located 20 minutes (about a $20 rideshare) from the airport. Most of our guests have a car for transportation, but we are near a convenient bus line for downtown. Buses in Austin only operate on a 30 minute schedule in the evenings so rideshares are a great way to get around at night. Uber, Lyft, Fasten, Rideaustin all operate here and are reasonably priced rides from the studio. Typically a $8-15 trip downtown depending on time and location.

The studio offers:

*Google Fibre internet

*TV with cable channels, DVD player

*USB charger for your devices

*30 day full refund/ 14 day 50% refund cancellation policy

*no smoking environment

The studio is well-stocked with all the basics: linens, some extra toiletries, a hair dryer, coffee/tea set up, bottled water. We are frequent travelers ourselves and want to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

About Carye and Dave

Carye and Dave are well-traveled and both work at a large hospital in downtown Austin. Carye is from Texas and has been in Austin for many years. Dave is from Montana and relocated to Austin to be with Carye (and enjoy mountain biking year round!). If you would like any recommendations for outdoor activities, cycling trails, parks, etc they can help out.

Carye and Dave purchased this studio in 2014

Why Carye and Dave chose South Austin

We chose this property because we both love cycling and wanted to be able to ride our bicycles downtown and to work-a leisurely ride to Town Lake, downtown, South Lamar restaurants, and live music. This is a lovely, tree-lined neighborhood for walking and enjoying the outdoors anytime. Garrison Park and a lap pool are three blocks down, and we are 10 minutes from several greenbelt entrances. We love all of Austin's green spaces!

Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

I was in town for a meditation conference and could not have asked for a more peaceful home away from home. Carye and Dave had thought of every detail....right down to wonderful books and original artwork. If you are making your way to Austin, book this mid century studio. You won't be disappointed!

Super tranquil and cozy studio

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great experience. I'm so grateful to have been able to stay at Carye and Dave's studio.

From the second I walked in, I loved the set up, good energy, shaded backyard, privacy, and decor of the studio. The little patio was perfect to do my qi gong and have coffee. Getting a hand written note was really sweet, which left a personal touch that made my heart smile. The binder provided in the studio had a lot of usual info that I wish I had more time to take advantage of. They checked in on me via text to make sure everything was ok, which again I personally found to make this experience more intimate. I also liked the white noise machine they provided, it made me sleep so well.

My only regret was not booking with them longer. I would rent this in a heart beat agian, Austin was such a great town. It makes me want to move here. So happy to have found this rental!! Thank you Carye, Dave, and homeaway

Quiet and perfect!

Our hosts were amazing and attentive. Responded very quickly to questions and temperature settings. The place was comfortable and so colorful with art. The bed was very comfortable and my wife and I will definitely keep this place in mind the next time we are in town!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kyle. I am so glad the studio worked out well for your Austin visit. All the art was done by local artists--East and West Austin have great art shows where artists open up their homes and galleries all over town in the spring and fall. A fun excuse to fill the walls of the studio!

Great place for 1-2 people to stay in Austin! Very comfortable bed and nice outside area.

  • 5 of 5

Carey was attentive and responsive to questions and making sure we had all the info we needed for a great trip! I stayed here with my college daughter to celebrate her birthday. The studio is small but cute and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable and the outdoor space is great! Would definitely stay here again!
