Overview

About the property

3Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

Lovely three bedroom, two bath flat. The house is relatively new construction in an older, more established neighborhood. The entire upstairs of this large house was converted to its own unit with separate entrance via spiral staircase. It is located on a quiet street 1.5 miles from Downtown. It is even closer to Rainey Street and East Sixth Street's bars/restaurants/food trucks.

Lady Bird Lake and the 10 mile Hike and Bike trail that surrounds it is only two blocks away.

Regarding transportation, there is plenty of free (non-metered) street parking. There are several bus lines within a few blocks. And there are frequently Cars2Go parked nearby waiting to be used.

About Kate Hathaway

I'm not originally from Austin, but I got here as fast as I could :-)

Kate Hathaway purchased this house in 2009

Why Kate Hathaway chose Austin

I love the proximity to downtown and the Hike & Bike Trail.

What makes this house unique

I have heard some Austin residents complain about the traffic and parking. And even noise when they live near Zilker Park or Shady Grove, or any place that hosts events with live music.

When my neighborhood is bustling with cars and people and music, I just smile. To me, all those things mean I live in one of the BEST neighborhoods in the city.

House rules Absolutely no smoking in the house. Any smoking on the property must be away from the house and considerate of others nearby whom the smoke might affect. Although there is a music/event venue 2 blocks away (Fiesta Gardens), this is an otherwise quiet neighborhood. Please do not disturb my neighbors with loud gatherings on the balcony after dark. Upstairs and downstairs are separate, but sound does travel between them. I live downstairs and don't typically mind some noise upstairs. There is an after 10:00pm quiet time, which will entail speaking in low voices and no music or loud television. No pets. No parties. Only guests that are included in the booking are permitted in the unit. Permission is needed if other people will be coming by. If you opt to cook, please do not cook food that will create strong, lingering odors. And finally, please be aware that there is a recycling container (large blue) and a trash container (small beige) outside. Have a great stay!

The house was great! We loved the spiral staircase leading up to our part of the house!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for my sister's bachelorette party of six and it was perfect! Two of us slept in each room and felt comfortable. It was very clean, two full bathrooms stocked with the necessities, and kitchen as well. Kate (the awesome owner) also had some snacks and drinks for us! The house is in a great location, only 2 miles from the city. We had a rental car for other destinations, and there was plenty of parking right outside of the house. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Kate!

Lovely apartment in family neighborhood, close to activities

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our family weekend.

Everything is updated, it has great beds, a nicely done efficiency kitchen & very pleasant front porch. The hot water was hot, everything was sparkling clean, there was plenty of spare bedding, the owner was helpful when we had questions, and the description in the listing was accurate...except we would call the parking "adequate" not "plentiful" (we have a big pickup truck).

Downtown, restaurants/clubs and various cultural events are a 5 minute drive away, there were ice cream trucks in the street during the day and a nearby park for the kids, good freeway access and even a couple of neighborhood groceries when we needed eggs.

The whole family loved it; the only drawback was a sole pan and no lid in the kitchen, so cooking breakfast was an adventure! Would definitely recommend it--and reserve again if we return to Austin.

Wonderful place to stay, great location

  • 4 of 5

I spent a weekend with a couple girlfriends here and had a fabulous time. With three of us, we each got our own room for a very reasonable price. The place was clean and quiet, but in a great location close to downtown and fabulous food options. The kitchen was very small, but the mini-fridge was fine for our few snacks since we ate out most meals.

Exactly as pictured, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. Kate was incredibly helpful and everything was exactly as we had hoped and/or expected. The beds were all comfortable, with standard sizes and sheets, making it really easy for people to choose their rooms without anyone feeling like they got the "bad room." The AC was great, a welcome resting place from the summer humidity. The location was perfect, as it is very close to Cesar Chavez Rd. where all the hip restaurants and food trucks are. We loved Veracruz for breakfast tacos, Cenote for coffee, and Kerlin BBQ for brisket. We appreciated how well stocked the towels were, as each room had 4 fresh towels folded for us. Kate also left out a book/magazine with Austin tips which we found very helpful.

I certainly hope to stay here again the next time I am in Austin.
