Stay in Downtown or a mile away on Barton Springs Road….either way, you’ll be in an incredible part of Austin with other solo travelers from around the world that will be ready to explore the city with you!
The Locations are incredible but the community is what makes it so special!
Want a truly unique Austin experience? Come stay, work, & play with a diverse community of entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, designers, freelancers, dancers, yogis, adventurers, do-gooders, travelers, seekers, runners, cultural explorers, green movementers, peace spreaders, curious ones & more!
We are a community-space where up to 7 guests(per location) are staying at the same time so you will have the opportunity to meet several interesting people who will hopefully become fast friends.
As an added bonus, you will actually have access to 2 incredible Austin locations for the price of 1…..you will just need to pick which location to sleep at!
Barton Springs Location (Sleeps up to 7): The Barton Springs SWAP Loft is big stone house located on Barton Springs Road with a big patio that overlooks Restaurant Row(Chuy’s, Shady Grove, Baby Acapulco’s, Numerous Food Trucks) and is a short walk from Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Park, and South Lamar!
Downtown Location (Sleeps up to 7): The original location is right in the middle of downtown Austin a block away from Austin’s famous 6th Street! You will be in the center of downtown and will be a 5 minute walk to the best of downtown! You will be able to use this location to co-work, have a drink before going out, use the bathroom/shower etc. even if you are staying at The Barton Springs SWAP Loft.
Our unique location means that you’ll have access to all the fun & activities you’d want to enjoy in Austin, as well as all the comfort & amenities you’d expect to find on vacation.So you’ll be able to work, play & have a BLAST in the two most-desired Austin neighborhoods (Downtown & Barton Springs/Zilker Park)…all in the same trip!
You will get the Full Austin Experience with our shared community’s 2 locations but the best part is really that you get to meet inspiring people from Austin & all over the world.
*We are mainly looking for longer-stay guests (one month +), but shorter stays may be possible – just ask!*
Working at SWAP is more than fast internet....but we have that too!
Great work starts at home, so while you’re calling Austin “home”, you’ll have access to coworking space at both locations(and all the inspired people who’ll be sharing it with you!).
FREE High Speed WiFi
Desks, Tables, Couches
Plugs for everyone
Not only will you be working around the other SWAP Guests but you will also get to meet Digital Nomads that live in Austin! We host weekly co-working events at our locations for a group of Austin Co-workers that you will be invited to. The meetups consist of working in our co-working spots followed up by drinks and/or food so everyone gets to know each other…..at the end of most events, we have a guest speaker give a quick presentation to inform and inspire.
We offer much more than a bed…..we offer the opportunity to be part of a growing community of SWAP Alumni that are trying to make the world a better place! We hope you join us!
Our favorite part of the SWAP Loft is bringing together solo travelers so they can experience Austin together instead of being locked away in a lonely hotel by themselves.
Hit the office as soon as you wake up (!), but in a city as great as Austin, be prepared for balance: we have just as much fun outside the office!
EVENTS CALENDAR: If you don’t already have plans, we have suggestions for every night of the week. Sometimes it will be great Austin bands we know about, other times it will be restaurants we have reservations for, other times it will simply be getting you hooked up with fun Meetups we are members of………no matter what, we will make sure you and your new friends have a blast in Austin!
SWAP also hosts events multiple times a month and you will be invited to those no matter what location you are staying at.
…But our favorite reviews are the ones written on our walls…..literally!
The Reviews below from Airbnb are pretty amazing also…..You’ll have to go to Airbnb to see the other 500+!
Sean and Lindsey were both great hosts! Sean was quite knowledgeable of the area and offered suggestions of places to eat and visit. I got sick while I was there, and they offered a few cold remedies, which I appreciated. They were welcoming and accommodating, and the house offers a relaxed atmosphere in a great location. I definitely recommend their house to anyone looking for a place to stay in Austin!
Sean and Lindsey were amazing hosts. They were very friendly and made the whole stay very pleasurable. I stayed at the Barton Springs location, but didn’t have a chance to checkout the downtown location. The Barton Springs location is in a great location. Walking distance to tons of restaurants (my fave is JuiceLand) and walking distance to Barton Springs pool and Zilker Park (where there is always something going on). I def plan on utilizing this gem AirBnb next time I’m in town.
