Why Mark Feist chose Central Austin
This property is in Aldridge Place between the University of Texas and Hyde Park. It was Austin's first planned development with many of the homes designated as historic. One of the most notable features is Adams / Hemphill Park that runs through it's center. The history of Adams-Hemphill Park dates to 1912, when Lewis Hancock (1856-1920) donated more than two acres along Hemphill Creek for use as a park. Hancock, who served as mayor of Austin from 1895-1897, was an influential figure at the turn of the twentieth century. Hancock donated the land for Hemphill Park when he began selling tracts of land in the Aldridge Place neighborhood in 1912.

Cozy, light filled and oh so clean!
This was our second time to stay at this property. It is a great location, very clean, lots of natural light and offers everything you need. Owner provides wonderful suggestions for food and entertainment so no planning necessary if you are a first timer visiting Austin.
Wonderful house in Hyde Park
Place was great! Mark was kind an be helpful. Place was clean and really easy access to everything in Austin. Definitely recommend.
Easy stay just north of UT campus
Great location near 34th Street and Guadalupe, just north of UT campus; very convenient for visiting parents. The house is clean, with plenty of seating and space to spread out. Very much appreciate the large desk, kitchen table and seating at the kitchen bar, too. Between activities with my UT student child, it was easy to drop by the house house for a quick bite, change of clothes, or just some down time relaxing, watching a bit of Apple TV. WiFi worked great, strong water pressure with plenty of hot water, natural light from abundant windows, and coffee for the mornings. Just a heads up, access to the apartment above is via a stairway on the back of the property (a visitor made the mistake of coming to a locked door on the front of the house which is the downstairs apartment instead). Thank you for a good stay on another fun weekend in Austin.
Comfortable and hassle-free
Every aspect of this apartment is easy, from arrival to departure. For the week I stayed there, parking was no problem, the bed was very comfortable, the outdoor table was a nice place to do work or read, and the location was convenient to everywhere I needed to be. Mark was responsive to texts and all went smoothly. There were two different guests in the upstairs apartment - although I was not overly disturbed by it, louder voices can be heard in the downstairs apartment, so sensitive sleepers may find this an issue. Overall, it was a great stay and I will definitely stay there again if it is available!
Lovely one bedroom first floor cottage
Great location close to UT campus and central Austin. Access to a parking spot was a nice perk. The cottage is clean and comfortably furnished. The kitchen is a bit dated but functional. The shower is tiled in and has a low ceiling. Not a problem for me but might be challenging for someone over 6 ft. There were 2 walking distance establishments Hopfields and Amy’s Ice Cream we thoroughly enjoyed.
Good location, quiet and clean
This was a great apartment in a quiet neighborhood, close to major highways. It's an old house, but is clean and comfy bed.
