n.b. This is posted in Sublet/Temporary because over the years I have found what I am offering works for some people looking to sublet. Just to be clear this is a 2 br apartment and I live in one of the bedrooms.
AVAILABLE WEDNESDAY MAY 1ST.
$1,200 includes it all in this centrally located, awesome fully furnished guest suite and apartment with everything you need for a few months including a gorgeous deck to hang out on and a nice gym and pool and all that good stuff!
Please do not reply "Is this still available?"! If this is posted I am looking for the right someone.
I am looking for an awesome person to live in my fully furnished guest suite in my fully furnished apartment and enjoy the entirety of the apartment, kitchen, living room, deck, gym, pool etc, for a few months. Maybe 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 it depends on what we decide on! :-)
Do you live in one of the other 49 states and have a great new job in Austin, Texas, or are you checking out the town for a month or so or maybe you just broke up with your significant other and need a short-term residence? Whatever the scenario, my place may be just what you need! I have hundreds of short-term apt-mates in the decade I've lived in my place and 99.9% of them were cool and interesting.
There are a lot of wonderful brand new apartments in town right now but my place and what I am offering still has a lot of advantages that can’t be matched.
In no particular order those advantages are as follows:
-The location of the apartment complex. I'm on S 1st near Barton Springs Rd which is super central and close to everything. I don’t own a car so I easily walk, bike or take the bus to wherever I need to go.
-The location of my actual apartment within the complex. I was on a waiting list to move into this apartment and I have been here for 10 years. I am on a top floor with no one above me or to one side of me and I have a fantastic outdoor living space as well.
-The physical layout of the apartment is that the bedroom/bathroom suites are on opposite ends of the apartment so no noise carries over or can be transmitted to the other bedroom and we have our privacy. I was an AirBnB Superhost for a few years. Many times I had guests arrive on a Friday and depart on a Monday and I literally never saw them or interacted with them. :-)
-The fact that over the years I have furnished the apartment to the point that it has everything I or a guest needs all done with a great sense of style with a strong aesthetic.
-The fact that the amount I am asking for, $1,200.00, includes all fees and utilities, i.e. Google Fiber, etc and is below market considering everything.
-I am very flexible on terms and do not feel the need to bind you to a 6 month lease and with last and security, just a meeting and chat with some personal references, a $600.00 security deposit and an understanding of how long we plan on living together.
Due to space, I am not interested in a couple, i.e. 2 people moving into the suite although if you were an awesome couple and you paid more and it was very short-term then maybe.
~~~~~$1,200.00 is inclusive of everything: Rent, Water, Sewer, Trash, Pest Control, Electricity, A/C, Gym, Pool, Fully Furnished Apartment and Deck, 500 MPS Google Fiber WIFI, X Box Series S, HBO Max, Amazon Prime, Furnished Guest Suite with Sofa, Desk, Mini-Fridge, Furniture, Queen Bed, HDTV, Blu-ray Player etc., Nice Pillows, Comforter with Duvet, Sheets, Towels and on and on.
I prefer rent and security to be paid separately via PayPal with appropriate notations or we can make other arrangements after discussing.
I am allergic to cats but have mostly grown out of my dog allergy so if you have an awesome, cute, well behaved, relatively small dog that doesn't bark then I'd possibly be open to you both staying for a while provided you give me an additional deposit of $100.00. Update: I actually might be open to a cool cat as well since I've been taking daily allergy pills anyway.
IF YOU HAVE AN AWESOME SMALL DOG I WILL WAIVE THE PET DEPOSIT. I EVEN HAVE THE PERFECT SPACE THAT WORKS FOR A SMALL DOG CRATE THAT YOU CAN SEE IN ONE OF THE PICS.
I am an open-minded liberal, single, white, male from the northeast. I have lived in Austin for basically 10 years, most of that in this apartment. I am a Virgo and am pretty clean and organized so if you are the type of person that lets the dishes pile up then while that is fine for some we probably would not get along living together. I love to cook and try to do it as often as I can. I like to have people over and make dinner and play some Catan. I love films and I am a huge Alamo Drafthouse and go as often as I can.
I work in the hospitality industry and am out quite often. I like to bike around town. I am a Unitarian Universalist and I am LBGTQ friendly. For years I lived with an awesome gay couple. I generally come home late after work, watch the PBS Newshour and chill. I like to read. I love to travel!
*** There is absolutely nothing wrong with leaving dishes in the sink or having a greasy smudged stove-top, or leaving stuff laying all over the floor. I just do not prefer things that way so I want to live with someone who views these things in a similar way. I like my home and things organized and with a certain aesthetic :-) ***
I think marijuana should be legalized and support everyone's right to partake but personally do not enjoy it and I, for whatever reason I cannot stand the smell so if you are big on smoking weed then living together would not work out but if you want to take a gummy and chill on the couch or have a glass of wine on the deck then of course that's totally different.
If you are interested, message me and we can discuss in much more detail where I can answer any and all questions. I'd like to exchange FB profiles, Insta, and definitely check out references and chat with previous apt-mates. I am more than happy to put you in touch with my former roomies! I would like to chat with a couple of personal references/former roomies to get a fuller sense of who you are and I am open to the same.
Please reply and tell me something about yourself and your living situation, why are you moving etc. I look forward to hearing from you!
