About this listing

8 min. from Zilker Park, 5 minutes drive to South Congress as well as downtown Austin! It's within walking distance to a wine bar, coffee shop, gastropub, indoor climbing gym + so much more! There are major bus stops on my street and a cab ride to downtown will take you less than 10 minutes. The apartment complex is in the middle of a neighborhood, surrounded by old live Oak and Juniper trees. My home is eco-friendly-I compost & recycle - if you like to cook, this is the perfect place!

The space

I've lived in Austin for several years & this is my FAVORITE place I've lived. The apartment complex is very quiet and is in the middle of a neighborhood, surrounded by trees. My home is very special to me & I like that it's uncluttered & full of good energy. If you care about your health & your surroundings, this is the place for you. Guests usually say it's: calming, relaxed, peaceful, beautiful, and decorated really mindfully.
Also, check in time is flexible!

The place is just as it looks in the pictures. Beautiful, tranquil, clean spaces which inspires peace and calm. There is a wide arrangement of books to choose from, yoga tools should you want to practice and quite a collection of quartz and crystals that adorn the place. The location is nestled minutes from one of Austins main attraction and well, pretty darn close to the rest. Despite a strip club being right down the street, the neighborhood is quiet and calm. Rose does not have a tv in the apartment. I mention this for anyone who wonders, this is of course I find, more than fitting for the feel and atmosphere of the place. A tv simply would be a blemish. Water pressure is AMAZING! The place is kept at a 80 degrees which I loved and in the mornings, the most delicious breeze will come through the patio if you crack the door. The place is also no shoes, which is a dream come true. Be punctual with check in & check out times! So very important! Sorry Rose for the 18 I took over check out! Nothing like leaving home, to come to Austin to a place that feels like youve came BACK home.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Rose's apartment. It was quiet, clean and inviting. It was also a perfect place for me to enjoy my typical morning yoga routine. Great central location in close proximity to restaurants, shops, bars and parks. Rose was a wonderful host and I would definitely recommend her place to others.

Overall, a nice apartment in a quiet neighborhood. The only improvement I'd suggest is adding more basics to the kitchen (salt, pepper, spices, etc.) and better cleaning of the kitchen area.

Response from Rose:
Hi Diana. I'm sorry you didn't notice, but directly in front of the stove is a hanging spice rack with 20 spices including 4 different salts, regular pepper, and smoked pepper. My apologies that they weren't clearly labeled!

Great place, location and apartment. Bathroom, specifically the shower could be cleaner. The rest was very nice and Rose even put snacks for us in the fridge!

Rose's place was exactly as described. It was perfect for a tranquil experience and get-away. The space is comfortable, free from distractions, centrally located, and all around lovely. I so enjoyed my time there and would happily stay again.
