Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A modern, detached 250sq ft micro-unit "casita" in the heart of old South Austin has everything you need for a pleasant stay - high beadboard ceilings, an equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, queen bed and proximity to some of the best Austin offers.

The space
Your place will be a detached 250 square foot casita (small house) remodeled in 2015. It has a fully equipped kitchen with stove, oven, refrigerator, utensils, dinnerware etc. There is also a small under counter washer-dryer.

The eating area is an extended countertop that seats up to three and can double as a workspace.

The bed is queen sized. The 3/4 bath is small and practical, and has an overhead shower.

Super fast gigabit fiber internet is available for you to use.

The casita is heated and cooled by a quiet ductless system.

There is no microwave or television, though the internet is certainly fast enough to stream anything you desire.

Guest access
The detached casita is all yours. The yard and patio are shared.

On street parking is typically not an issue in our part of Dawson. If necessary, we can clear a place for your car in our driveway.

Other things to note
Complimentary coffee, tea, and basic herbs and spices for cooking.

You'll share the patio and yard with a friendly seven year old beagle. In deference to people with allergies, however, no pets, not even the beagle, are allowed inside the micro-unit.

No early check in. We're really sorry about this, but we've had many people request early check in. Sometimes they become quite insistent about very early check in. Sometimes they even get offended if they can't check in early. This problem was an unwelcome source of tension that we've resolved by saying the place will be available at 3PM or later.

Thank you for you understanding. If you would like to drop luggage before 3PM, you are welcome to do so. If you must check in early in the morning, please consider including the previous night in your reservation.

Location

Austin, Texas, United States

Dawson was built in the late 1950s and early 1960s as a working class neighborhood in what was then the city's southern edge. With Austin's huge growth, Dawson is now a central city neighborhood, although it retains some of the character of "old South Austin."

Today, Dawson is a mix of old residents and newcomers (we've been here 16 years), with modest single story late 1950s houses giving way to new million dollar duplexes.

We've kept to the basic style of the original neighborhood, while updating with modern and energy efficient improvements.

We are in the middle of the neighborhood, back from busy streets.

Dawson is near many of the city's attractions and convenient to the airport, about 20 minutes from ABIA, door to door, at low traffic hours.
