Newly built, private, design-minded guest house nestled in the treetops of North Hyde Park. Cook for yourself in a fully equipped kitchen, or enjoy walkable neighborhood restaurants and coffee shops. A quick bus or cab ride will quickly get you to UT or downtown. Queen bed in the bedroom, a comfortable queen sofa bed in the living room. Wireless internet, Roku TV, washer/dryer. Parking off-street or in the alley. My husband and I are onsite in the front house if you need help!
Our Treehouse apartment is a mere 550 square feet, but the high ceilings and sunlight from the storefront-sized windows make it feel more spacious. The apartment footprint is modest to accommodate the mature American elm tree just a few feet away, a protected heritage tree.
We lived an entire year in the Treehouse while our home was being renovated, so we can vouch for how comfy it is for a couple. The sofa bed is queen sized and comfortably accommodates two adults, but we definitely do not recommend our apartment for more than four adults.
And if you're on the fence about a rental car in Austin, we vote yes. While it's totally possible to get around without a car, this IS Texas after all. The Salt Lick, the Wildflower Center, the Oasis, Jester King, Circuit of the Americas, etc. are not cheap cab fares!
The exception to the rental car rec is for SXSW and ACL, or if you plan to be working at the University of Texas, Dell Children's Hospital or med school or some other downtown location where parking will be tough.
There is a small outdoor seating area at the bottom of the apartment stairs. You will also have a parking spot in the gravel lot next to the garage off the alley.
We live in a residential neighborhood with families with little ones, so please keep it quiet if you are outdoors after 10pm.
