About This Listing
If you want to relax in style, this is the place for you. We love our little backyard oasis and think you will too!
It's hot here in Texas. If you want to stay in Austin, you need to stay where there's a pool, and we have one for you!
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.

The pool and relaxing poolside.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as they'd like.
I love that our neighborhood is growing constantly. Its proximity to downtown, restaurants, and local businesses is just the right amount - close enough to access easily yet far enough to be able to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown and Austin traffic.
There is a bus route at the end of our road (about .10 mile); however, Austin is not known for it's mass transit system and I've been told it's all pretty seedy. Unfortunately our cab companies aren't very reliable but many people love Car-to-go and Uber.

Lori and Bill, the hosts, are an absolute delight as is the beautiful bungalow we stayed in. The set up is very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen area is very accommodating with everything you'd need. I'm in love with the shower; the giant waterfall shower head has me wishing we never had to leave. The bedding was clean and soft and the bed was large enough to fit my 6'3" boyfriend and I comfortably. Absolutely in love with the artwork on the walls and the over all decor. If we ever visit Austin again here is the first place we'd pick to stay.
If you're in to thrift and antique shopping, be sure to ask them about their store. We visited quite a few thrift stores and antique shops and theirs was or favorite for our entire trip. They've also provided plenty of books and flyers for things to experience in the areas which was very helpful. Really helped us enjoy our stay and get the most out of Austin.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful weekend at what felt like our own personal Poolside Oasis. The bungalow was perfect for the two of us; an excellent place to spend our anniversary/Valentine’s Day weekend. The bungalow is super cozy, well designed, and very clean. Lori and Will are excellent hosts! We were thrilled to find a bottle of champagne and chocolates in the refrigerator when we arrived. We would definitely stay with them again when we are in Austin.
Wonderful place to stay! Quiet , adorable room next to pool. Bed very comfortable, everything immaculate. Lori even leaves snacks and water! I will definitely return
