Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our charming and private 1940's guest house is located on a quiet street in the beautiful east downtown historic Swede Hill neighborhood, surrounded by live oaks and unique homes. The house is walking distance to the Red River District and East Downtown bars and restaurants.

The space
We've instilled our own style, love and appreciation of music and art into our guest house, while striving to maintain a clean, minimal, and peaceful space. We've gained insight into hosting from our own frequent stays in boutique hotels and guest homes and we applied this to our guest house - we want you to be comfortable! *While our guest house can sleep up to 4, it is ideal for a couple + 1-2 kids or 1 adult because the second bed is a convertible queen sleeper sofa in the living room.

Comfortable King Bed, TV (Netflix, Hulu Live Cable, Amazon) and ceiling fan, clock, dresser, bedside table, and luggage rack

Well-furnished with a convertible sofa that expands into a Queen size bed. Sheets and mattress topper are stored in the bottom drawer of the bedroom dresser. Pillows and blankets are stored in the top cubby of the hallway cabinet. Also included: TV (Hulu Live, Netflix, Amazon), coffee table, ceiling fan, and a record player with a rotating curated selection of records!

Full, modern, well-appointed kitchen with brand new appliances, dishes and cookware. Filtered water and ice in the refrigerator, dishwasher, gas range, microwave, high-end coffee maker, tea pot, and the basic essentials that a traveler would want to find. In addition to the basics, we stock the kitchen with Peets Coffee, assorted teas, sweeteners, half-n-half, snacks, and basic seasoning.

Clean and modern tile and glass, with a lovely shower, new bright fixtures, thoughtful common bathroom necessities for your use. The bathroom is well-stocked with clean new towels, with plenty of extras on the shelves in the hall, along with extra bed linens and blankets.

The front yard is enclosed with a white picket fence and is full of trees, flowers and shrubs. You have full use of this area, as well as the small enclosed private back yard. This patio has a covering, lights, and a table for 4.

NO PETS, Sorry.

I recently moved back to Austin with my husband and kids from San Francisco, where we have been living for the last decade. We are enjoying the transition from busy hectic city life to a more relaxed lifestyle in central east Austin - and enjoying many tacos and margaritas as we acclimate! I work in technology, my husband is a musician and a contractor, and we love to travel. We've stayed in inspiring guest homes and boutique hotels in different parts of the country, and we really appreciate the thoughtful and creative spaces that our hosts have provided. We notice the details!
