Austin Rent Comparison: What $750/Month Gets You

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Austin neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $750.

The Park at Stone Creek, 9200 North Plaza Drive, one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, 574 square feet, $725/month: Located in the Heritage Hills neighborhood east of I-35 near Rundberg, this place really does have a park, and a creek, that runs through the middle of the complex. It also looks bright and updated. Cats and dogs allowed.

Tierra Bella, 6407 Springdale Road, two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, 858 square feet, $765/month: There are some small things about this apartment that give us pause (looks like it has window AC and heat units), but it's in a newly renovated complex in the sweet Pecan Springs neighborhood. Cats and small dogs allowed.

15044 Swiss Drive, two-bedroom, one-bathroom detached home, $750/month: This manufactured-home listing is definitely a no phone/no pool/no pets situation, but the it indicates that the place is in a small subdivision with four others, along with built homes. It's about 30 minutes from downtown, near the Circuit of the Americas, and looks reasonably clean and countrified.

Mission James Place, 4009 Victory Drive, studio apartment, 396 square feet, $785/month: Located between South Lamar Boulevard and Manchaca Road just north the Highway 71/Loop 360 split, this place probably officially qualifies as a micro-apartment, but its location is mighty convenient to groceries, restaurants, movie theaters, and the Broken Spoke. No pet policy is mentioned.

Lake Travis/Yacht Harbor, cabin efficiency, $725/month: The listing doesn't have an exact address, but it looks like this OG tiny home near Lakeway is a relic of Austin's laid-back past, when living near the lake with no stuff and the chance of meeting up with wildlife was considered nirvana. Cats and dogs are welcome.
