New I stayed in this lovely loft condo for 3 nights, and really appreciated how comfortable and well-organized the space was. by Great space, great location 11/20/2014
New I stayed in this lovely loft condo for 3 nights, and really appreciated how comfortable and well-organized the space was. Close to Zilker and great restaurants, it has pretty much everything one needs: wireless internet, a well-supplied kitchen, 2 bathrooms (LOVED having a shower upstairs in the loft area!), ample lighting, a large TV (hooked up my computer via Apple TV, which was very convenient), and very comfortable spaces to hang out. It was too cold during my stay to enjoy the balcony but there is indeed a sweet space to enjoy out back. I found the property to have quiet neighbors, and right next door there is a convenience/grocery store for basics. It was also helpful to have an off-street space to park, although street parking is easy if needed. Definitely would recommend this beautiful spot and hope to stay again in the future.
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved staying here! by LOVED IT!! 11/19/2014
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved staying here! We were so lucky to have found this place. It was so cute and so clean. We felt right at home, immediately. We wished there was a place exactly like this where we live because would would most definitely live in it. It was so close to downtown and to barton springs pool, which was also amazing. And we enjoyed having a convenience store right next door. I hope to go to Austin, Texas again and stay at this place. Excellent! Thank you!
This little apartment was wonderful for the two of us. by Convenient Location, great place! 09/09/2014
This little apartment was wonderful for the two of us. We could walk to the park, bike downtown and were close to all the great things central Austin has to offer.
