800 Embassy Drive 506 Vi

If cozy is your thing, this 575-square-foot apartment in the Guadalupe neighborhood of Central East Austin offers the luxury-condo version for $1,900 per month. The studio is in the new Tyndall building, which means it’s right on IH-35 but also close to downtown. Plus, there’s a neat pool deck on top.

Those who want their cozy in more old-fashioned form will find this three-bedroom, two-bathroom house renting for $2,000 per month in Hyde Park. It’s fairly roomy at 1,232 square feet and has the old-cozy features many crave, including wood floors; original window frames, trim, and baseboards; and exposed shiplap.

A one-story duplex in Travis Heights renting for $2,000 a month looks pretty generic, which is fine because it has a sweet courtyard and a colorful porch and, duh, Travis Heights. It has two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, is near Big Stacy park, and has two parking spaces.

That there are still single-family homes—or at least a single-family home—for rent in East Cesar Chavez comes as a surprise. This freestanding house has one bedroom and one bathroom in 825 square feet for $1,875 per month and has wood floors, a covered porch, some nifty built-ins, and large front and back yards.

1208 Enfield Road

For $1,850 per month, you can live in an apartment building with a name (The Miriam) and an apartment that’s been updated by a name interior designer (Joel Mozersky). It’s a 705-square-foot condo, technically speaking, located on Enfield Road in Old West Austin. It has one bedroom and one bathroom and lots of vintage charm.
