The space
Welcome to Eastside Container, a sleek and modern guest home converted from a shipping container in Central East Austin. This is a fully functional home with a contemporary and industrial design with many unique features, including a 40 foot shipping container, original wood and metal floors and a tri-panel set of 8 foot doors that slide and pivot to open the living area to the outdoors. Recessed lighting, wood walls and counter tops throughout, high quality leather furniture and lots of windows and light complete this cozy and inviting abode.

Although the space is small, many amenities await, including a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, full bath with a custom tiled shower, LED flatscreen Smart TV with cable, full washer/dryer, queen size bed and a deck with a completely fenced in yard.

All linens, towels, dishes and cookware are provided as well as coffee, soaps and bath products.

The home is located inside a completely fenced in compound with private driveway, parking spot and security gate.

Come hang out on the Eastside. This is tiny living at its finest!

Guests will have complete access to entire house and yard. Nothing is shared.

The hosts are long-time residents of Austin and are available to offer tips, recommendations and general guidance if needed or can be completely invisible if you prefer.

Eastside Container is conveniently located in the heart of East Austin, close to the MLK train Station, downtown and UT campus, including UT's baseball, basketball and football stadiums. Very convenient to many great bars, restaurants, and live music venues on E. 6th St., Manor St., E. 11th St. and the Red River district. Some of the best BBQ joints in the state are almost within smelling distance, including, Franklin, La Barbecue, Mueller's, Mickelthwaite Kerlin and Sam's.

Your own car is highly recommended while visiting Austin, as the public transportation system here has something to be desired. That being said, you are a 10 minute walk to the MLK train station which runs to and from downtown (but not too late).

It is a short drive to downtown or UT, less than 5 minutes, or about a $6 cab or Uber ride.
