Cute little efficiency garage apartment in Hyde Park, near the University of Texas, Central Market, Shipe Park, the Elisabet Ney Museum, Cap Metro bus routes, walking distance to many restaurants and other attractions.
Perfect for one person or a couple.
UPDATE: The outdoor shower is ready for use. Returning visitors will remember a window in the shower/bathroom. Well, that is now a door opening onto covered private deck with 3 shower heads. Perfect for Austin summer time, you've gotta come see it ... and shower in it. Clothing optional.
If you're not familiar with Austin, Hyde Park is north of the UT campus. A bus ride downtown takes around 10-12 minutes. There are many little shops and restaurants withing walking distance. Been doing my best to keep Austin weird for 27 years, I'm happy to help you find what you're looking for or figure out the best way to get around.
The room comes with a coffee maker, microwave and fridge. I'll also make sure you're supplied with the raw material for coffee production in the morning. There is a lovely deck above the guest house and you are welcome to hang out on it. And there is a huge fort in my front yard for your climbing pleasure.
Also, the house is equipped with gargoyles to ward off evil spirits. I guarantee they will not bother you during your stay.
Note about pricing (especially for returning guests): my nightly rate now includes hotel taxes being collected by the City of Austin (9%) and the state of Texas (6%). To see what I'm actually charging, divide the nightly rate by 1.15. Let me know if you need help with the math. A picture of my City of Austin license is included in my listing.

This was my first AirBnB experience and it was a great one. Marcus was a great host and this Hyde Park apartment was the perfect fit for my girlfriend and I. The cold forced us indoors, but the one outdoor shower we got was amazing. I would like to only shower outdoors from now on. Marcus provided great recommendations and checked on us (via text) daily. There are quite a few great little restaurants (and coffee shops) within walking distance. This is very central location and we easily got to most parts of town (via car) within minutes.
We can't wait to come back when it's not below freezing!
The house is cozy and well equipped with everything you need for a great stay in Austin. For those of you who read that there is an outdroor shower, don't worry if it's cold out or doesn't suit you, there is an indoor shower as well.
The house is tucked into Hyde Park, a neigborhood just north of the UT campus and within walking distance to restaurants, bars, groceries, etc.
Marcus is an incredibly attentive host, many times asking if there was anything else that was needed. I felt like if anything came up, he would take care of it for me.
If you are planning a trip to Austin, want to stay close enough to get to the fun, and don't want to pay a lot, stay with Marcus at the burrow!
Marcus is an attentive host - offering assistance and/or privacy whenever desired. On this trip, I wanted to be close to UT in the Hyde Park area...Marcus' abode definitely fit the bill!
Although too chilly to enjoy the outdoor shower, and not enough time to lounge on the deck, I appreciated being there and look forward to visiting again in warmer months, with more time to romp around savoring Austin's treasures.
Thank you Marcus, for helping me feel at home! You're a good "ambassador" for Austin!
This was a great place to stay. Marcus was out of town during our stay, but his backup host, Anne, was very helpful and communicative. The place itself was clean and comfortable, and we would definitely stay here again the next time we visit Austin.
The accommodations were comfortable and contained everything we needed for our 6 night stay. Marcus was a considerate host. He looked out for our needs and was quick to respond to any requests.
We look forward to going back during a warmer time of the year so I can enjoy strolling the friendly neighborhood.
Very friendly family helped me arrive and made sure I was comfortable. Outdoor shower!
Yes, I will stay there again.
Nice and clean.
great location, thx marcus!!!
All was as stated, good, especially the cold beer in the fridge. The area is quiet and makes for a peaceful stay.
We loved our stay at the Burrow! It was perfect for our weekend in Austin. I would highly recommend staying here! Marcus is great and we will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Austin.
