East Austin Bungalow Room by Lake

House - Private room · Garden St, Austin, TX 78702, United States

The Space

Room available in a cute, homey 1930's bungalow in great next-to-downtown neighborhood. The bedroom is furnished with queen-sized bed, dresser, closet and small desk/vanity. All linens provided. Shared kitchen and bathroom with owner/occupant. The kitchen has a gas stove/oven, refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee maker and blender. Great back deck with big back yard. Quiet, friendly neighborhood. Wifi. Washer/dryer. A/C. Driveway and street parking.

Easy walking, biking, busing and driving downtown, Convention Center, South Congress, Ladybird Lake, museums, the art studios of the Eastside and the University of Texas. Bike rental place just a few blocks away. Tons of delicious Eastside/central restaurants and some of the best food trailers in Austin all within walking distance: Indian, Mexican, Cajun, gourmet sandwiches Bacon (!), Asian fusion, fish and chips, vegan delicacies and Thai favorites.

This is a great place to use as a base camp to explore Austin. So many truly Austin-y places close by, then a cozy, comfortable home to rest in. Plenty of pecan trees offer meditative sky-staring opportunities on the back deck.

I'm usually busy juggling a few different projects between my home office and outside interviews, but I'm always happy to answer any of your questions and give my recommendations for my favorite local spots.

I have a very sweet Golden Doodle older puppy who is crate trained - he's either in the kitchen or in my office. He's never been in the guest room. You probably won't even know a dog is here. Golden Doodles don't shed and are hypoallergenic.

I'm sure I'm forgetting some details, so just ask!
