About this listing

The guest house is set well back from the road and, with its private gravel driveway and wooded surroundings, is a relaxing hideout. Enjoy sitting on the porch with a glass of wine after a busy day in town.

The Space

Large private free standing guest house, El's Place is a combination of modern cool and rustic warmth. The spacious living area has high vaulted ceilings and is flooded with natural light from french window doors and skylights. The large breezy porch is ideal for lazy afternoons reading and relaxing Hill Country evenings with friends under large porch fans.

El's Place sleeps two in a cozy bedroom with queen sized bed opening onto the porch; a daybed with trundle is situated in the living area, and adds two twin beds, making this a great solution for both romantic getaways and family breaks.

If you like to cook, there is a full kitchen and a gas grill down on the patio, beside the fire pit.

With a large private driveway, there is plenty of room for a boat or RV. A neighborhood boat ramp into Lake Austin is less than 5 minutes away. If you are in town for an Austin festival, it’s a direct shot along scenic Bee Cave Road to Zilker Park, about a 15 minute drive.

One caveat.. We don't have a washer/dryer in the Guest House.

Guest Access

There are two entrances to the guest house: 3 French doors look out over the front porch onto the garden of the main house; a back door provides access from the private driveway.

Interaction with Guests

We like to say hello to our guests and make sure they are comfortable. Other than that, we are there if needed - we may meet if guests are out on the porch and we happen to be in the yard.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is quiet. The guesthouse is set well back from the road on a private driveway. This is a community of fenceless properties where people like to stroll or jog with their dogs. In 3 or 4 minutes drive you are on Bee Caves road that takes you right into the heart of Austin.

Getting Around

There is no public transport.

Other Things to Note

We have a small washer/dryer and over-the-air TV (no cable) with a Roku Box for internet TV channels such as Netflix and Amazon.
