Overview

About the property

Quiet, Secluded Studio Near University of Texas and Downtown

This airy studio apartment is nestled under a decades-old oak tree in the quiet neighborhood known as 'North University,' immediately adjacent to the area of 'Hyde Park.' It occupies the upper floor of a 2-story carriage house behind a World War II-era bungalow.

The apartment is within walking distance of the neighborhood hub of Hyde Park, a center which includes several great local restaurants, an old-fashioned grocery, a bakery and coffee house, and a gelati bar. It is also within walking distance of all that the University of Texas has to offer (including the football stadium), and only 2 miles from the capitol and downtown.

The studio boasts both modern and antique furnishings, luxury linens and solid WI-fi. It has its own deck set up for outdoor lounging in the shade of the trees. There is also has an outdoor eating area on the ground level with barbecue grill. Bikes are available on site for your use.

If you need more space for a large group, the downstairs Studio and main house are also available for rent. View them by entering their property ID into the homeaway or VRBO search bar (house is 590616; studio is 477027).

About Ann Giles

We are a husband and wife team who loves old houses. We were each renovating our own 1940's era home when we met. Since then, we've acquired two additional homes and had four children. We love spending time with both--keeping the houses in great shape for years to come and keeping the kids busy and fed! One of us is a native Austinite and the other has been here since 1995, so feel free to ask us anything you want to know about Austin, and we will try our best to help.

Ann Giles purchased this studio in 1995

Why Ann Giles chose Central Austin

This property is conveniently located near the University of Texas, yet it is not heavily populated by undergraduate students. Instead the area is home to graduate students, young professionals, families, and senior citizens. The area has a wonderful historic feel with all the mature trees and World War II era houses, most of which have been restored and are prized by their owners. The area is very close to downtown and to so many other things.

Lovely studio apartment, overlooking trees and neighbourhood roof tops.

  • 5 of 5

The setting is just perfect, between Hyde Park and the University of Texas campus, close to neighbourhood cafes, restaurants and a good small supermarket. The studio apartment is well set up, and surrounded by neighbourhood trees. Lovely! Looking forward to returning very soon!

A treehouse refuge

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay in this studio! I was here for five nights in mid-February while doing research at the University's Harry Ransom Center. The studio was absolutely ideal--it could not have been better! Although it is only one room, the size and arrangement of the furniture makes it feel very spacious. The kitchen is well-equipped with essential pots, pans, and so on; the bathroom is sizable; and the bed and couch are comfortable. I was staying by myself but would not hesitate to stay here again with my partner.

The best part of the studio, though, is that the property and location are charming and peaceful. The deck is even lovelier than the pictures indicate--you really feel like you are up in the trees! The perfect spot for morning coffee, especially when the mockingbirds start singing. The apartment was *very* quiet--I was worried that I'd be able to hear the neighbors in the main house or downstairs, but I couldn't at all (and I'm very sensitive to noise, so this means it really was quiet).

The neighborhood was great--lots of good places to run, a great yoga studio (Black Lagoon Art + Yoga, up on Guadalupe), and the terrific Wheatsville coop. About a mile to the University, an easy and pretty walk.

Highly recommended!

Comfortable studio near University of Texas

  • 5 of 5

The room was clean and well-equipped in terms of a very comfortable bathroom and shower, nice little kitchen, good T.V. My one complaint is that there were no good reading lights. The light over the bed was not bad but not good, - but the lamp next to the couch/loveseat was too dim and not a good height for reading. The neighborhood is quiet with easy access to a bus line and a short 8 minute walk to a nice little grocery and restaurants. The information booklet about the place was missing, but I was able to get information from my brother who stayed in the downstairs unit. Had he not been downstairs, I would have been at a loss. I was definitely helpful.

Charming, comfortable, clean

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Austin. The apartment was perfect, great location just a few miles from Frank Erwin Center for the concert we were attending. The charming apartment was clean, nicely decorated and comfortable.
