Directions to Gallery House

Our address is: 3500B Speedway, Austin, TX 78705

Arrival:  

Please give us a general time of day you anticipate arriving. If you are leaving the airport, please call or text message Rice at cell phone 512-560-7711, then he can be on the alert for your arrival, greet you, get you into the apartment, sign the Rental Agreement, oriented and turn you loose.  All of which takes about five minutes. Don't forget to bring a government issued photo ID and your credit card (if this was requested).

We live in the historic 1927 yellow house on the northwest corner of 35th Street & Speedway, it is 3500 Speedway. The apartment is just behind it.  It is all yellow and white like the old house, except it is almost brand new. This is 3500B Speedway, numbers are on the column. If you arrive in the night, there are two lights on the columns on either side of the driveway (one on the right is above the numbers). Also for nighttime arrivals I'll leave some lights on above the apartment balcony to make it easy to find. Pull into the carport underneath the apartment off of 35th Street. This is where you will park during your stay. Again, if arriving at night, the carport lights will automatically illuminate as will the light above the entry to the apartment.

TAXI from ABIA:

Ask to be taken to 3500 Speedway.  The new garage with the apartment on top is behind our 1927 house that is on the corner, facing Speedway. The apartment faces 35th Street.  If the taxi takes Airport Blvd. to Manor Road or goes via 38th St. the cost should be about $30 to $32 with tip. The car should pull up on the side of the property on 35th Street by the foot of the driveway. You will see the carport with 3500B vertically on the right column. The apartment door is next to it. There is no parking on Speedway (it has a 24/7 bikelane). It is about 20 minutes from the airport, give or take five minutes depending on traffic.

Driving from Houston (and east):

If you take Hwy 71, once you go past Austin Bergstrom Airport, use the directions for driving here in a rental car from the airport. (Don't stay on 71 to I-35, as it is usually a traffic nightmare.) 

If you have a choice, drive to Austin via Hwy 290, as you will come into Austin closer to the Gallery House.
