Clean, Zen modern backyard cottage, easy access to SXSW, convention center, great dining, and public transportation. Gorgeous, peaceful space, close to the action but perfect for rest and recharging. Easy access to SXSW, ACL, F1 and all festivals.

The space
Enjoy this clean, modern cottage nestled in a cozy but convenient Central East Austin neighborhood. Inspired by Japanese teahouses, this backyard cottage provides easy access to SXSW venues, ACL Fest, downtown, great restaurants, and public transportation while offering a peaceful retreat for resting and recharging.

Gorgeous light, vaulted ceilings, and an open floor plan make this unique 1 BR/1BA feel spacious, calm, and inviting. The Beehive features a full kitchen, roomy indoor and outdoor showers, a lovely work space, all-new furnishings and fixtures and a queen bed as well as a double foldout couch.

(Please note: there is no tv or cable - the better to recharge. Since I work in tv, I find it encourages me to play records on the record player instead. There are plenty of books as well!)

The Beehive is an easy bike, scooter or Lyft ride to downtown and UT. And there are great tacos, sandwiches, BBQ and coffee within walking distance. The train and bus lines are all handy.

Blow dryer, iron and ironing board, washer and dryer are all included as well.

If you want to see a great photo spread on the Beehive, do a search for the magazine Tribeza and "downsizing". They did a nice article on the place and you can see more pics.

Where you’ll be

Austin, Texas, United States

The neighborhood is charming, and funky, safe and lovely.

If you aren't used to eclectic and diverse places, this is not for you. None of our guests have ever had any safety issues. I've lived here since 1995 and dearly love this little oasis. We support the right of all people to be healthy and happy. As Woody Guthrie wrote on his guitar, "This machine kills fascists."

I'm an Austin-Brooklyn filmmaker and television producer who can be found biking to the Farmer's Market or to rock shows at Cheer Up Charlie's or BAM. I love seeing live music, eating great food and having dinner parties with friends. I'm lucky enough to have been in Austin for college in the early 90's and spend my time at the Beehive for part of the year when I'm not working in New York.
