The space


In the heart of the upcoming South Shore development on Lakeshore Blvd. Directly across from Lady Bird Lake on the east end of the famous Hike and Bike Trail is our 1100 square foot 2 story red brick townhome. We are less than 300 feet from Lady Bird Lake, can give you directions to a great little hidden sandy beach nearby that only locals know about. You can walk to restaurants such as Draft Pick Sports Bar, Mariscos Seafood, Arandinas, Baby Acapulcos, El Taquito, the new trailer park eatery at South Shore and countless more. Less than a mile from our us is our local H.E.B. Grocery store.
Also we are on the same street as the brand new Emos Austin music venue and obviously walking distance as we can see Emo's from the front of our community.
We are located just east of the Interstate 35 off of Lakeshore Blvd in a small gated townhome community across from Hosteling International Hostel. Best of all though, because we are east of Congress along Lady Bird Lake one of our best features is watching the famous Congress Avenue Bridge bat colony fly directly overhead every evening. The bats become active in mid-March but become ever more active the hotter it gets here, so enjoy the cool breeze from the lake and watch the bats fly over head.


Our home has everything a guest could need.
Our living room has a flat screen T.V. and of course wireless internet.
There is a separate guest bathroom downstairs as well near the kitchen and dining room.
In between the bedrooms is a large shared bathroom with bathtub, with unlimited hot water. The entire community hot water is from a massive boiler so everyone can shower without fear of when the cold water is gonna hit.


Bus: For 1 dollar you can take a 7 minute bus ride on the number 7, 20, or 100 to congress and riverside. Theses busses run every few minutes and the bus stop is just a couple minutes walk from our townhouse.
Best though about the bus is that you can take the bus from the airport to our house. Just one bus, just $1.00.
Cab: To 6th Street and Congress is 5-7 dollars depending on who you call.
Walk: Were right along the lake so just walk along the lake to downtown.

The room at Carmen's was great. Clean, comfortable bed, fresh towels and basket full of toiletries in the bathroom in case you forget anything. The location is a outside the city, but walking distance to a Starbucks and a Pharmacy which was very convenient. Carmen is a great and welcoming host. She made sure I had everything I needed to be comfortable in her home, and picked up my calls when I had questions.

Carmen and her family were so welcoming and made every effort to ensure I felt right comfortable. I enjoyed my visit, and the location itself was very centrally located for exploring all the various areas of Austin while being relatively close to about everything. If you need a place to crash for business trips, I would recommend it.

A friend and I decided to go for a weekend trip in Austin. Our stay at Carmen's was exactly what we were looking for - somewhere clean to sleep and shower for a good rate and close to downtown. Upon arriving it was a little difficult finding the entrance as the gate information didn't clarify it was the car gate entrance. We had to loop around the parking lot a couple times till we contacted Tim (Carmen's husband) and were informed it was for the car gate and that we could park in the back lot even though it said permit only. Without direction from Tim we probably would have struggle finding the apartment too as there was no apartment number on the door and we were instructed to look at the surrounding neighbors doors for their house number to figure out which was theirs. Other than those little things we had a great time in Austin. Carmen, Tim and their daughter couldn't have been any nicer and more welcoming. They chatted with us and our friends and even gave us some recommendations on where to go/what to do. Carmen was also pretty easy when we confirmed we had 3rd person needing to stay with us the day of. They were also easy with the check in and out times as our flight home was early evening. We'll definitely keep this place in the mind the next time we visit Austin.

Although Carmen was away during our stay, we had a great time. We used her place as a base to explore permanent housing during our move to the area. Her place was well located and more than adequate. Her cheerful kitchen and dining room provided us with the perfect place to do the necessary online research of apartment hunting and prepare meals.

My name is Carmen. I have been living in Austin for the last 10 years. I can call myself Texan!. I am a director of marketing events. I work and travel a lot, so most of the time Im out of the City. I have very busy days but always make sure the room is ready for my guest to check-in when it is more convenient for them.
