Relaxing & recently remodeled, this lofted condo with two bedrooms is just near the heart of Austin! There's new super-fast G**gleFiber WiFi installed and handcrafted furniture throughout. Located just a 5-7 min. Uber/Lyft ride from Downtown, South Congress, Rainey St. & top music venues. Great private spot for SXSW, ACL, F1 & exploring this fun city!

The space
****We pride ourselves in our already high cleanliness ratings but in light of COVID-19, our professional housekeeping service has increased their cleaning and disinfection regimen. Due to this, we cannot accommodate early check-ins/late checkouts. We are well-stocked on soap, paper towels, toilet paper and other amenities. Please review the terms and cancellation policy before booking as it applies to all bookings. ****

Our 2-story condo is just minutes by car from everything you'd want to do in Austin. One bedroom is downstairs, and another is the entire open loft upstairs. This is NOT a share of any sort, or private room, you're not in someone's backyard —you get the entire place to yourself! We have an awesome AirBnb co-host for the condo: her name is Darlene (you can see her profile below). Since we have keyless check-in, you likely won't meet her, but she'll be your point of contact before, during and after your stay.

This 2BR condo is comfortable, bright and has everything you need to enjoy your time here. It's a perfect place to rest your head after exploring Austin all day/night, and it's spacious enough to just chill and relax if that's your thing too. About 90% of the furniture is hand-built by us from sturdy pine or cedar. There's a tatami-style king futon bed with topper upstairs in the open loft bedroom, and there's a queen guest futon bed with topper downstairs (which can double as a lounging couch). The remodeled bathroom has a shower/tub with new fixtures and comes with towels for your use. We provide some homemade shampoo, which is a mixture of Dr. Bronner's & essential oils. The open dining area, that we've subbed in for a traditional living room, also has a bar that we built with 3 stools as well (see photos).

We have all the amenities to make the place like feel like you're at home. Including a full kitchen with butcher block tops, oven, stove, dishwasher, microwave, a French Press & a Chemex coffee maker (BYO Coffee), coffee cups, wine glasses, dishes and cooking necessities. We have super-fast G**gIeFiber WiFi installed, cards/games and free parking for 2 cars. There's a SmartTV with Roku here, so you can link up to your Netflix/HBONow accounts, etc. and watch anything you'd like. There are coin-operated washers/dryers on site in the building as well. We've done our best to keep highly-synthetic materials and plastics out of the home where possible, so you'll find a number of things that are made of different types of wood, metals or glass instead. There is also single-stream recycling here on the property (yay) :)

The neighbors basically keep to themselves and their own business, but people are friendly. Sliding glass doors lead to a private deck under string lights for enjoying Austin’s lovely weather.

If you're staying for about a week or more, there may be a couple minutes of watering required for the succulents and low-water plants around the home.

Other things to note
The spiral staircase leading up to the open loft is narrow. We think that's part of the fun, but care must be taken ascending/descending the staircase with & without luggage.

As is mentioned in the listing, and as you can see from photos, we have a non-traditional living space, and opted to create a large bench dining table in the place of a couch.

The beds we have are firm! That being said, we are upgrading soon with toppers and with update the listing as soon as those are in.

If you read some of our much older reviews, you'll notice a number of our guests have talked about a kitty (named Rufus) that we had. He's no longer here at the condo. We've decided to move him to some property just south of Austin so he can freely roam around a bit more and be a cat creature.

There's currently a home being built in an adjacent lot, so you may hear some noise at times.

We do everything we can to prevent it from happening, but it's possible that with the hot Texas summers, a bug might find its way in the condo to cool off. It's rare, but it can happen.

Location

Austin, Texas, United States

There are great food trucks, restaurants, music venues and bars (Emo's, Grizzly Hall, The Buzzmill) within a 5 min. walk — plus two awesome corner stores that specializes in craft beer & local goods. We're located 2 miles from Downtown, and half a mile from Ladybird Lake (a.k.a. Town Lake) where you can kayak or stand-up paddleboard.

Zilker Park, where ACL is held, is just 3 miles away, making it a quick 8-10 min. drive, or ride-share.

We're just a 5 min. drive from:
- Downtown: music, awesome food, more music, bars and SXSW epicenter
- SoCo: where there are dozens of great restaurants, bars and shops
- Rainey Street: filled with unique 'house-bars' and restaurants
- Red River: basically music venue central (Mohawk, Cheer Up Charlies, etc.)
- East Austin (the fun parts): E. Cesar Chavez, E. 6th/7th, Franklin's BBQ
- Auditorium Shores: lots of festivals held here, plus trails around the lake

We're 20 mins. from Circuit of the Americas, where Formula 1 (F1) and other events are held.
