A wonderful little retreat right in the middle of Austin. The cabin is only 180 sq ft but has everything you need. Twin bed with 400 thread count sheets, fine towels, coffee & tea setup. While very simple, it is about half the price of a hotel.

The space

The "Zen Cabin" is a tiny 180 sq ft hideaway & is perfect for ONE person. It is a serene, quiet space (heavily insulated soundproofing) right in the center of town: Hyde Park just north of UT. Walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants and grocery stores. 10 minute walk to UT. Bike distance to downtown.

There is a full bathroom and twin bed, and it is adjacent to a large garden with many seating options that are you are welcome to use.

I look forward to hosting you!

Interaction with guests

It is always a treat to meet guests at checkin, visit with them in the garden or even share a glass of wine.
Sometimes, though, guests check themselves in & out with communications all by text. Although I miss meeting them in person, this method works remarkably well too.
I travel a good bit for work & fun, but if I am gone, there is always a "concierge" on site.

Other things to note

What to expect.
We really want you to have a great stay & go out of our way to make it happen. However we are not a hotel, so there is more chance of unexpected things happening, both good & bad. Since the cabin is about a third of the price of a hotel in the area, hopefully that will make up for any short comings we have.

Really cute little space. Manages to pack in a lot into a very small space. Very lovely little yard. Easy parking, and the host was super accommodating.

Super cozy space, the size of a hotel room but way nicer and with a lovely yard to hang in, complete with hammock and trampoline. Only drawback if you don't have a car is that it's a bit of a ways from downtown and the center of action. If Bcycle, Austin's bike rental scheme, puts in a stop nearer, this place will be perfect.

I had a great stay at this little gem in Hyde Park. Perfect location, with easy, walkable access to a variety of local amenities. Very quiet and comfortable little nook tucked away in my favorite neighborhood in the city.

This was my second time staying at Tracy's. It's such a great place -- quiet, safe, clean and close to everything Austin.

Awesome little place! This will certainly serve your needs while in Austin. This place is more than walking distance to the downtown area, so consider a transport option (I rented an electric bike to get around). Comfy bed & pillows. Nicely decorated. Safe. Quiet.

Didn't get a chance to meet Tracy on my quick stay but the Zen cabin is a quiet, cozy spot. Really convenient to the bus line(s) to downtown.
