Luxury abounds in this downtown condominium that has been completely renovated from top to toe. High end finishes such as granite counter tops and custom cabinetry adorn the kitchen and bathroom. Sleek bamboo flooring is under foot and gorgeous light fixtures illuminate it all.
Situated in a quiet neighborhood in downtown Austin, this condo is located walking distance to Darrell Royal Stadium, UT, the AT&T; Conference Center, the Erwin Center, the Capitol, and 4th street. Public transport is one block away and a cab ride downtown will run about $5.
Grab your morning coffee at Starbucks which is only two blocks away, enjoy happy hour at the iconic Dog & Duck pub just one block away or sip a cocktail in the swanky, oddly named Dive Bar across the street from the pub. Dining options for fine Italian to a simple sandwich are within a stone’s throw and Tiff's Treats is located next door should you need to satisfy that sweet tooth. Prefer to dine in? The kitchen is equipped with state-of-the art appliances, including a fridge with a quick chill option for that bottle of bubbly, cooking utensils, coffee maker, toaster, kettle and more!
This studio features a memory foam latex queen mattress with fine linens and fluffy, down-alternative pillows. The sofa in the living room folds out into a bed (with bedding included) for an extra guest or for lounging while enjoying the in-house entertainment options. Those include an iPod docking station, a 42” HDTV, Cable TV, Wireless Internet and a Blu Ray player.
The bathroom features lots of storage, great lighting, a full-length mirror, hair dryer, a large walk-in closet and a separate toilet/shower for additional privacy.
The condo comes with a free parking space under the building as well as complimentary laundry facilities.

My wife and I stayed here to be within walking distance of UT, from which our daughter was graduating. It is a very short walk to Guadalupe Street, reasonably close to most of the vast campus, and a short drive (or bus or taxi ride) to the Capitol and downtown music scene.
The apartment is gorgeous, ideal for two people sleeping together and possibly a third on the sofa bed. I'm tempted to say it had all the comforts of home, but it probably had more: a fully equipped modern kitchen, great Internet service, TV and radio, desk, all in fine working order and absolutely clean.
Julia seems to have thought of everything. I'd love to stay here again on our next trip to Austin.
