Interaction with Guests
Viviane & Michael live in the house and look forward to hosting your perfect stay at CinnaMan Villa.
CinnaMan Villa is in central Austin in a residential neighborhood, just minutes from all the capital city has to offer. The vibrant SoCo scene is a few blocks away; you can walk to historic downtown; UT and the creative East Side are across the river; the bike trail is at our doorstep taking you to Zilker Park and Barton Springs pool; the boardwalk at Lady Bird Lake is down the street. There are two food truck parks nearby, both have delicious offerings and best of all, they're on the shores of Lady Bird Lake!
Austin is super easy to get around with Capmetro public transit, Car2Go, or bike rentals - try the e-bikes at Rocket Electrics, our friendly neighbors. The bus stop is 5 minutes from the Villa and the ride to downtown is less than 10 minutes. The Airporter bus takes less than 15 minutes for $1.50 per person, such a deal!
Other Things to Note
Michael aka CinnaMan, a UT alumnus and Austin “connoisseur”, will be glad to share his favorite spots for dining, live music, and Longhorn ambiance. Check out the guidebook on this page for some of his recommendations. The welcome packet in your room has a 20-page detailed description of the must do, not-to-miss, unique Austin events, entertainment, restaurants, and much more!
We are happy to offer discounted "room only" rates for weekly, monthly, and extended stays. All guest rooms are on the 2nd floor, no elevator. Daily rate includes breakfast - except festival, event, standby and special offers.
- We live in the house; this is a "room" rental not a "house" rental.
- We appreciate if you do not move the furniture around. You will be required to pay for any damage to the furniture or the flooring. If you feel you absolutely need to rearrange the room, please ask for our assistance and approval.
- No kitchen use is pretty straightforward - CinnaMan's professional kitchen is not available for guest use. Grand Suite has a refreshment center with refrigerator/freezer & microwave; we can provide paper- & plastic ware; coffee maker, bottle opener, ice bucket, storage containers, etc upon request. All you need to do is ask.
- No smoking in the house, in the rooms, or on the balconies really means no smoking. There will be a $250 deep-cleaning fee if we find evidence of smoking. Smoking is permitted in the designated outside area only; ashtray is provided.
- We cannot accommodate extra guests in the room; Grand Suite sleeps 6 guests max; no sleeping bags, airbeds, etc.
Viviane and Michael were amazing! So kind and generous. They had brownies waiting for us upon arrival and took great care to ensure we had a nice stay. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean, and everyone had a great time. We stayed during SXSW, and although we rented a car, we were also able to get an Uber or taxi when needed. Great location, great hosts!
We can't say enough about our experience with Viviane and Michael. It was such a pleasure and they took such good care of us. The home is extremely nice and the food is terrific. They were flexible and accomodating to all our needs. The location is excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Try the cheesecake!
If you want a nice and comfortable place to stay in Austin, look no further than CinnaMan Villa! Viviane and Mike are awesome and you will love staying at their place when you and your small group travel to Austin. There were four people in our party, two couples. Each of us had our own bathroom and very comfortable bed (my wife and I slept on a king-sized memory foam mattress). And when we come to Austin next year, I would have no hesitation staying there with two other couples. The upstairs is all yours - 3 separate bedrooms and two bathrooms with showers. Viviane was great from the moment I contacted her to the time we left and is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to everything Austin. We enjoyed talking to her over coffee (by the way-great coffee, OJ and homemade breakfast pastries!) about Austin's food and culture. Getting around is pretty easy too - cabs are pretty easy to get (must get the 'Hailacab Austin' App) and the buses are a five minute walk (Austin Transit Times App will get you from where you are standing to where you need to be via bus). CinnaMan the perfect place to stay for an Austin newbie, like we were. We look forward to staying there again!!!!
This was my first experience using airbnb, and because of Team Cinnaman it won't be my last. Our stay at Cinnaman Villa was nothing short of perfect. There were 5 of us in our group, and we easily could have fit a 6th. The whole upstairs was ours, which included 3 bedrooms and 2 full size bathrooms. The beds were some of the most comfortable I've ever slept on. Vivienne was extremely accessible from the moment I reached out to her to inquire about staying here. She promptly responded to emails, and had a wealth of knowledge regarding things to do in Austin. When we arrived, Michael was there to greet us and get us settled in. The house was clean, the rooms and bathrooms were clean, and the beds were amazing.
Each morning we had muffins, coffee, and orange juice. And our 2 fridges were even stocked with some equally delicious surprises. We came for the first weekend of ACL, but honestly if the festival hadn't been going on, I would have been just as fine plopping myself in front of the TV and watching football all day with Michael. Location was great for ACL -- only about 3 miles or so from Zilker, and same from downtown. We took cabs a lot, but if you don't mind walking a little, cool places like Rainey Street were only about a half hour walking distance.
Next time we come to Austin, this will be the first place we look to stay. The only thing better than this place were the people who own it. Thank you Michael and Vivienne for a phenomenal stay in Austin. Can't wait to stay with you both again!
Viviane was a wonderful hostess. Her home was well kept and clean. My family felt very welcome. We especially enjoyed using the back porch. We utilized all three rooms and if we ever return to austin we will be going back to Viviane's.
We had an awesome stay. There were 6 of us and we each had our own room, 4 of us had to share one bathroom, which was perfectly fine. It was very clean, comfortable and less than 10 mins from downtown. Michael and Viviane made a fantastic breakfast the next morning and made us feel so welcome. Thanks for a wonderful time, would definitely stay again!
Viviane and Michael are simply the greatest hosts on Earth. Nothing was too much trouble, and they went above and beyond to make our stay a comfortable and successful one - from helping us with bike hire to printing our return flight boarding cards.
The house is a real gem, and was located perfectly for us (we were attending SXSW). It is close enough to downtown to easily be able to cycle there or grab a bus, but far enough away to be nice and peaceful at night - and we were able to sit out every morning in the sun, doing our work on our laptops before heading to the festival!
Michael makes cupcakes and cheesecakes, and to be honest, these are worth the trip alone - I could have stayed at the house all day every day eating these cakes, and not seen Austin at all and it would have been a trip well spent!
Nothing negative to say at all - the beds were comfy, clean and large, and the bathrooms had everything we needed.
Great house, great facilities, great location and GREAT hosts.
