Tranquil, contemporary lofted back house in hip, leafy east austin just a few blocks both from the lake/trail and also famous Laundrette restaurant. Several more blocks to Le Barbacue and lots of other bars and restaurants along Caesar Chavez. East 6th is just a short walk beyond that. Downtown/SXSW venues a very short bike ride or drive. Private, small, lofted, sunny, tranquil garage apartment and yard are all yours during your stay!. The loft is perfect for one person or a couple!
This is a beautiful, quiet, peaceful, art-filled place by the river and all the east austin/downtown action. It is perfect for someone (or a couple), who wants a comfortable, quiet, contemporary space with the advantage of being walking distance from east austin bars/restaurants and near downtown and the airport.
The loft is small. It is great for one person or a couple. Make sure to read the full description to get a sense of the layout so you know what to expect.
Keep in mind that this is my home, not a full-time rental. It is comfortable and well-organized, and filled with my books, art, objects, etc. Given the many objects in the loft, and that I often leave the windows/doors open when possible, it is not dust-free. Keep this in mind. The loft is well-cared-for and clean, but unlike a hotel room or full-time rental it is lived-in.
Parties are not permitted, nor is excessive noise after 9pm.
I have a dog, but she is not included in your stay (unless you would like her to be). My place is clean and she is not permitted on any furniture, but do consider this if you are sensitive to animals.
The heating/cooling unit in the loft is an older Euro-style wall unit and its motor is audible when running (like a window unit). It is not quiet like a central heating/air system. You may wish to sleep with earplugs. If you are sensitive to such things, consider this.
Dogs are welcome for a pet fee ($25 per pet for the length of your stay) and bikes may be rented for a nominal fee as well ($15 per bike for the length of your stay) .
I am working on my PhD in art history and traveling often for work and fun. I love my little casita on the lake in downtown/east Austin. It is one of the best places I've ever lived. When I am not writing or reading about contemporary art, I am gardening, swimming, kayaking, hiking, walking, playing tennis, rock-climbing, visiting the bars and restaurants of east Austin, and telling my dog (chocolate lab) how amazing she is.
