At the end of a quiet cul-de-sac lies this practically brand new modern guest house that is 196 sq ft of efficient modern living. Resting behind a 1960's ranch house, it features a built-in queen-size bed with plenty of storage underneath for carry-ons or clothes, a kitchenette with cooktop burner, toaster oven, Keurig coffee maker, microwave, 3/4 size refrigerator, a bistro table and 2 chairs for dining in, a 3/4 bathroom with awesome shower (rain showerhead) and plenty of hot water, cable TV with DVD player, A/C and heater, an outdoor eating area for 4 in the breezeway, a 17'x35' pool for cooling off, and driveway parking with private entrance.
For parties of 4, you can rent our adjoining sister-guest house. Just book that room on our separate listing.

Our stay with Lori was absolutely perfect. The space is so well put together, sweet, and tidy, we didn't want to leave! Lori was a wonderful and warm host, open throughout our stay for recommendations and questions. We hope to return to Austin often and stay again, and again and again.
We absolutely loved our stay! My husband and I ended up staying in the house on the right. The Goodpasture's are very friendly (including Buster!) We loved getting to chat with them a couple of times and visiting the shop they run. They even left water and treats for us. I can't wait to visit again when the weather is warm enough to swim. The location is great and the house was very cozy.
Very cute place and wonderful hosts - with a big shout out to Buster, who even took a dip in the pool with us! We loved this place and would highly recommend - Lori and Bill are wonderful hosts. Thanks for letting us stay!
Lori and Bill were amazing hosts! My boyfriend and I stayed in the left bungalow and absolutely loved it. We wanted to permanently move-in the moment we stepped foot into their place because it's so cozy and perfectly decorated. The bed and pillows are beyond comfy (resulting in waking up at 2 PM one day!) and there's a nice view out over the pool. Unfortunately we did not get to swim, but we did enjoy sitting outside which is very peaceful and quiet. Beautiful natural light streams through the room, and there'(email hidden) unit for those hot Texas days. The Goodpastures left water and goodies for us when we arrived, but it's a shame that we didn't get to meet. We did get to chat over text and hopefully my boyfriend and I will come back for another visit! We had a lovely time and couldn't have imagined staying anywhere better. Thanks, Lori and Bill!
We ended up staying in the left bungalow the whole time. Hosts were extremely helpful and accommodating. My husband's back went out and they gave us the name and number for their chiropractor. Unfortunately, it was a little too chilly to swim, and the pollen count was - I am guessing - astronomical, as we both came home with rotten allergies.
Our other son is coming out to Austin in summer and I am recommending the bungalow.
Great place and such friendly people! Definitely staying here again on my next Austin trip, it's a perfect little oasis. Getting to downtown is a piece of cake and the cul de sac is really quiet.
The Goodpastures are fantastic hosts as well, Buster loves greeting guests, the side entrance is well lit and parking is easy.
