The space

Garage apartments in Pemberton Heights are tough to find! This one is a gem, with a lot of privacy, perched in the treetops. We just finished refurnishing and upgrading this unit the last week of September 2014. Be one of the first to discover this new spot.

This studio apartment - roughly 500 sq ft including a large private patio - comfortably sleeps 2 with a four poster queen bed. Enjoy an eat-in all granite/stainless kitchen, our 55" TV with Netflix & Amazon access, and in-unit washer and dryer. The apartment boasts 15' cathedral ceilings, huge arched windows and French doors that open to a patio where you can enjoy morning coffee.

We love living here and look forward to sharing the secrets, tips, tricks and hot spots that only the locals know.

Guest access

Guests have access to the garage apartment via a spiral staircase with a private patio. (Note that this staircase is sturdy but narrow and somewhat steep. Guest should be aware before booking.)

There is available parking on our quiet street.

You can use our large outdoor dining area (lit up with globe lights) to hang out.

Interaction with guests

We are available as needed.

Our young family lives on the premises and will be here during your stay. We are friendly but we respect your privacy.

Other things to note

This apartment has a private entrance with a wrought iron spiral staircase. The staircase is solid but narrow and rather steep. Guests should be aware of this before booking their stay.

Maria was a great host and extremely hospitable. The place was very nice and spacious for a studio layout. Had everything you would need: full kitchen, plenty of closet space, washer/dryer, and flat screen tv to top it off

Maria's place is about as good as it gets. It's private, spacious, quiet, clean and well decorated. I'd definitely stay again. She made check-in and check-out easy.

I loved staying at Maria's guest bungalow. She is a wonderful host and her place had EVERYTHING in place to accommodate my extended stay. Its is such a cosy place, everybody loved its charm. It is in one of the best neighborhoods in Austin. Everything is less than 15 minutes away. It is even walking distance to the Lamar Hike/Bike Trail if it is a nice day. The combination of the location, amenities, charm and Maria makes this place a one of a kind. I highly recommend it for a weekend getaway or an extended stay.

From the moment I arrived Maria and her family were perfect hosts. They were one of the most (if not THE most) hospitable hosts I ever had. Maria was just a text away if I ever needed her and provided all I could ever need. The place itself was even more beautiful than the pictures. It felt like home and had a very modern, yet warm vibe. It's located in a beautiful neighborhood, just minutes from downtown. I'd definitely consider staying here again and recommend this place to anyone looking for the perfect place to stay in Austin.

We'd visited this property many times, and each time we've had a lovely stay. Maria is absolutely hospitable and always provides those small touches that make such a difference. We refer to it as our little treehouse because it feels secluded and above the trees. It's extremely cozy, clean, well-kept, and provides everything you would need: full kitchen, washer and dryer, office table, easy parking, and outdoor area. Highly recommend!
