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!
Second bungalow also available:
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 closet, a lounger, a small dorm-size fridge, a coffee maker, microwave, 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' saltwater pool for cooling off, and driveway parking with private entrance.
For parties of 4, you can rent our adjoining sister-guest house (at a separate cost). Just book that room on our separate listing. It's listed as Backyard Getaway Oasis in a separate listing.
These houses are conveniently located in north central east Austin:
- 6 miles north of the world famous 6th Street (home of sxsw)

We have a golden retriever (Buster) who is only slightly inquisitive. If you mind dogs, this may not be the place for you; however, we will do our very best to keep him out of your business.
NOTE: HOTEL OCCUPANCY TAXES ARE ALREADY ADDED INTO THE PRICE.
You will access the property through a gate on the side of the house. You will be given a passcode to enter your bungalow.
Interaction with Guests
As much as you'd like. We are willing to give advice on things to do in Austin and we are also willing to leave people alone. Guests' choice.
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.

Lori was available any time I needed anything and I felt welcome. I loved my little cottage. The bed was very comfortable and everything was clean and just as it was pictured. I drove into downtown Austin each day and found it to be a very quick and easy drive. I would definitely stay here again.
Loved the little bungalow! It had everything I needed for my trip... very cozy. Lori was very responsive, personable and made everything very easy for me. The room was also full of snacks that were great for a morning or late night snack! My next trip to Austin will include a stay here.
Was extremely comfortable and welcoming to say the least. I was in and out due to work at SXSW however it was exactly what I needed in the sense of getting away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.
Had to make a last-minute trip to Austin for business and am so glad I found this little getaway. The poolside cabana is a really adorable spot - so glad I stayed here instead of a boring hotel. The room was cozy, very clean, had great internet -- everything I needed. Only a short 12 min drive to downtown.
One thing I liked about staying here was that we didn't need to juggle schedules to get me access to the place, there was a keypad and all information that I needed was available upon arrival. It was very easy to use Uber to get around and it was about 12$ to downtown and cars came in 4/5 minutes. There is also a Torchy's very nearby which was awesome for lunches.
Lori is very nice and welcoming. The place is exactly how described it was great. Will definitely stay again if I ever find myself in Austin.
I greatly enjoyed the accommodations and the location in my first visit to Austin. Centrally located it allowed me to travel to all points of interest in less than 25 minutes. (Just avoid the I-35 during rush hour) Lori took the time to chat about her experience of living in Austin and was kind to answer many questions I had in regards real estate and how the city has grown in the time she and her husband have lived there. As I'm looking for a place to retire, the visit piqued my interest to examine the city further. Great stay!
