Close to downtown, our sleek, modern private guesthouse sleeps four in 2 bedrooms with shared bathroom. Close-in yet quiet and secluded. Perks of a 5-star, price of a 3-star. We provide a.m. beverages with condiments and pastries when requested.
Sleek, clean, new (finished in April, 2014), modern and completely private. The guesthouse has two spacious bedrooms connected by a large bathroom with fridge/ice-maker. (No cooking). If you need a kitchen, check out my other guesthouse listing, www.airbnb.com/rooms/4161216.
Four people will be quite comfortable. Separate entrance from main house.
If the Modern Guesthouse is booked, or if you need a kitchen, please check out my other listing: www.airbnb.com/rooms/4161216, nearby, also a separate guesthouse.
We provide full coffee and tea service. There's a refrigerator/ice-maker, iron, private entrance. (No cooking). The two bedrooms in the guesthouse share a large bath. Cable television, hi-speed wi-fi. Use of washer/dryer available. Parking on the street only.
Interaction with Guests
We will be in our separate quarters during guests' stay in the guesthouse. We are available for questions, issues, suggestions about fun stuff to do in Austin but we will not be in your way or nosy.
The guesthouse is less than a mile from Zilker Park (WALK TO ACL) Austin's famous 12 mile hike-and-bike trail, spring-fed Deep Eddy pool, Barton Springs pool, Restaurant Row, and a SUP and boat rental dock. Bike rentals are just about a mile away. Downtown bars and restaurants are about 2 miles away. Please note: the base price is for 2 people sharing one of the rooms. If 2 people want to use both rooms, you should ask for a rezo for 3 people so it will trigger the extra $25 fee for use of the second room. Check this out: (website hidden)(phone number hidden)
Our driveway is steep and curving, so we ask guests to please park on the street. We have had a couple of near disasters with people who parked in our one extra spot and tried to back out of the treacherous driveway. Our street is quiet with very little traffic, so it is perfectly safe to park on the street. We are happy to discuss picking guests up from airport. Cabs, Uber, Lyft and Cars2Go are also available.
Other Things to Note
Architect-designed home completed in April, 2014. Memory foam beds, highest quality sheets and towels, fine shampoo, conditioner, lotion provided, along with hair dryer and iron.
Smoking is allowed on outside decks only. Pets are negotiable, depending on size, age, and number. We must discuss the pet BEFORE you arrive. You may not just show up with a little dog. We'll provide the bags but you also must pick up after your pet.
Pricing: the base price is for two people sharing one room. If you need both rooms, it's another $25/night even if it's only two people. When you make the rezo, ask for 3 people, so it'll trigger the extra fee.
We hope our guests will treat our lovely new house just as they would treat their own possessions. Some holiday and special occasion weekends have a two or three night minimum. Please be sure to check the calendar when booking. We recycle everything--please put plastic, cans, and paper in the black bin marked "Recycling."
This was a perfect set up for our weekend stay. The neighborhood and house were perfect for a relaxing getaway.
Jodi was extremely helpful and informative. Her guest house was very well kept, a great location, amazing views, and a nice atmosphere. A perfect upgrade versus staying in a hotel.
My wife and I had a wonderful vacation here. The guesthouse is immaculate, is in close proximity to all things Austin, but feels secluded with an incredible back deck overlooking the creek. Jodi was so welcoming. Next vacation we will be back!
Our stay at Jodi´s place exceeded our expectations! This place is like staying at a suite of a nice boutique hotel. The design of the house is amazing, and it´s located on a beautiful neighborhood with amazing views! (Me and my wife are architects so we really appreciate good design)
The facilities are amazing, great bed and bathroom! I would highly recommend anyone to stay at this house.
Jodi makes you feel totally welcome and you have a perfectly private space separated from the main house!
We hope to be back soon!
Jodi's guesthouse is an absolutely phenomenal location just a hop skip and jump away from Austin's vibrant downtown. It is an uber modern retreat nestled on a scenic and tranquil ravine. The two bedroom guesthouse has all the amenities of a 5-star hotel with chic decor, a fantastic en suite and all necessary creature comforts including high-speed wifi, cable tv, fridge, iron and more. Getting downtown by Uber is fast and ~$10 trip -- not bad at all! Jodi is a super friendly, very communicative and down-to-earth host who ensured our stay was fantastic! I would book this property again in a heartbeat.
Jodi's guesthouse was everything I hoped for and more. The memory foam bed is a dream to sink into and a tragedy to get out of. The spacious shower is not only beautiful, but like one I hope for of my own one day. Extra perks that made me smile and put a bow on my stay were the assortment of teas and electrical tea pot, the soap products that actually smelt good and are not cheap, the bedside lamps, and the roomy and elegant patio space that we sadly didn't get to enjoy because it was raining. I guess that is what "next times" are for. Please continue to share your wonderful space, and thank you for sharing it with me.
Jodi helped us feel very welcome and her guest house was well-appointed. The neighborhood has nice topography and is close to Austin but feels a bit like a retreat.

With all three of our children now grown, my husband, Fred, and I are enjoying the freedom of travel, reading whenever we like, going to movies, eating out at the many great restaurants in Austin, and attempting adventurous new recipes with good friends. We look forward to meeting new people from all over the world with our Guesthouse Zipp Airbnb venture. If I were to summarize my view of life, I think it would be: experiences are better than things.
I am managing the Garden Oasis Guesthouse for my good friends, Yvonne and Tom who own an advertising and marketing company. Their place is gorgeous--5 star living at a 3 star price. They are warm and welcoming so if you choose their Guesthouse you'll be guaranteed a wonderful Austin experience. It's perfect for executives who want a quiet private space for meetings or entertaining.
