Stay in this private two-bedroom condo that’s the perfect home away from home.

Take advantage of this rental’s affordability that is in no way proportional to the level of comfort offered. The living room is a bright and airy space, just like your very own home.

This is a no-frills apartment but despite its minimal appeal, you get to enjoy the benefits of affordability. From the outside, it looks like a mere shed, save for the large windows that betray its status as a private rental. Inside, you’ll find a bed, set adjacent to a small table that would act as your dining area. A kitchenette is also available, equipped with the basic kitchen essentials that will enable you to prepare a simple meal, if you so wish. This is an accommodation for one who doesn’t care for the luxuries of hotels; one who wants to spend the night in a cozy space without giving away too much money. And if saving is your thing, then you’ll be pleased to know that, from here, you need only walk to access the city center and all the attractions therein.

You can tell, from the facade, that this little cabin is a stylish one. The wooden cladding gives it a quaint appeal blends in well with the compound it’s perched on. Via the glass doors, you’ll be ushered into the cozy interior that’s elegantly finished. This studio seeks to disprove the notion that cheap isn’t always good. The rental is a perfect home for those in need of low-cost accommodation. It boasts a full kitchen so you have the option of preparing your own food. The sleeping/living area is as spacious as a studio can be, with the large windows creating the impression of more room than there actually is. Found in the heart of South Austin, you only need to walk a few minutes to reach the most popular tourist spots.

Just like the previous listing, this studio guesthouse by no means deserves the label of ‘cheap’. Despite its low-cost, and it certainly is affordable, its decor and amenities can be compared to more luxurious rentals. Because of this, you won’t feel at all ripped off. In fact, it’ll be hard to believe just how affordable it is. With a good mix of colors that are complemented by the bright light via the large windows, the space puts you in a jovial state. Modern facilities like a television with cable, a fully equipped kitchen, a queen-sized bed, and WiFi access, make this an apt home away from home. A short stroll from here, you’ll be able to try out the area’s best cafes and restaurants.
