Cozy, quiet casita (5 minute drive to downtown, 10 minute drive to airport) with easy parking, great A/C and heat, full bathroom, kitchenette, natural light, private patio, outdoor security camera, and Roku TV!

Close to cafes, bars, coffee shops, short bike or bus ride to Zilker Park and Lady Bird Lake, and only one block from the Metro 105 Downtown/UT Austin bus stop.

The casita is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. We are happy to host guests of all backgrounds.

The space
Built in 2011, the space was originally used as an art studio. In 2016, we added a full bathroom, kitchenette, and 24,000BTU split A/C and heating unit, and patio to use the casita as a guesthouse for friends, family, and fellow travelers.

Guest access
You'll have the studio and its small back patio all to yourself. Since we have a corner lot, you can easily access the backyard and the studio through a side gate. You may see us walking through the backyard to get to our car, or our young daughter playing on her swing set in the side yard. The neighborhood is very welcoming with lots of runners and families walking.

Austin, Texas, United States

The studio is in South Manchaca/Southwood, a midcentury neighborhood full of trees, eclectic homes, and yard art, in between South 1st and Manchaca, just south of Ben White Blvd. The studio is in walking distance to Beatniks Market and Live Oak Market, eccentric convenience stores that carry the best in local beer, wine, and delicious snacks (about a 10 min walk). Also in walking distance are the famous Veracruz Taco truck, El Chilito Modern Tex-Mex, and Radio Coffee & Beer, a wonderful bar/coffeehouse with lots of outdoor seating and live music almost every night (about a 20 minute walk and never a cover!). We are also a quick Uber/Lyft ride from St. Elmo (winery, whiskey distillery, brewery), South Congress, and South Lamar cafes, bars, and music venues.
