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 house available:
At the end of a quiet cul-de-sac lies this practically brandnew 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 loveseat, 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.
These houses are conveniently located in north central east Austin:
- 6 miles north of the world famous 6th Street (home of sxsw)
- 10 miles to Formula 1
- 5 minutes to the Metro Rail

We have a golden retriever who is very 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 tucked back, yet still near many essentials.

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!
The little poolside getaway was so fun and beautiful.
Lori was so sweet and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again!
My original trip to Texas was to visit my sister in Pflugerville, but my boyfriend and I decided to book a place to stay in a couple days prior just as a mini vacay. We both fell in love with Lori's modern poolside getaway houses, and were extremely excited for our stay. Though we were still amped from the beautiful pictures, it is definitely so much better in person. It was so cute, cozy, and we loved all the small details and pieces of art that decorated our little weekend home. The bed was SO comfortable and the rainfall shower head was just amazing. The only minor problem I can think of is that the shower head feels a little too close to the wall. Our stay took place during the one weekend where it actually got a little chilly, so we had a little issue with the heater, but that's expected when it hasn't been used all summer. The water bottles and treats in the fridge were very much appreciated.
We didn't see or interact with Lori in person until our departure in the morning on our last day, but she was super responsive through text messaging and made sure she was available for any questions. Staying here is a must!
We had a lovely stay in Austin, even after an initial road bump our hosts were incredibly accommodating and went beyond the call of duty. Lots of use from a small space. Lovely neighborhood, easy to get everywhere. Lovely dog too! Would definitely recommend!
staying here was as easy as staying at home. come and go as you please, quiet neighbourhood, well appointed bungalow with refrigerator, tv, microwave. modern bathroom with rain shower head. really neat vintage furniture and accessories. everything was very clean.
