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 $1.75 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 rates for weekly, monthly, and extended stays. All guest rooms are on the 2nd floor, no elevator.
- 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 off limits. Tower Suite has a refreshment center with refrigerator/freezer & microwave; we provide paper- & plasticware; 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 room, or on the balcony really means no. 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; Tower Suite sleeps 4 guests max; no sleeping bags, airbeds, etc.
Viviane and Michael were wonderful, warm, accommodating hosts. We were made to feel at home and enjoyed the lovely rooms in their Tower Suite. We were in town for a family funeral, and at several points during our three day stay we needed a comfortable place to crash and just regain our centers. Their home perfectly fit the bill. Welcome snacks and breakfasts were wonderful, and much more than was expected. Next time we are in Austin (hopefully not for a funeral!), we will certainly try to return to Team CinnaMan.
Mine was a very brief visit. But exactly what I wanted: good up front communication, a warm welcome (warm smile + plate of warm brownies and cold beers in the fridge), clean and comfortable rooms, hot water all day....in fact, just as described and consistent with the positive reviews I read. 10 mins by taxi to the centre, short walk to the river. Happy to recommend.
I can't recommend Viviane and Michael's place highly enough!
The rooms themselves (including the bathroom) were immaculately kept, well-stocked with everything you'd need and everything worked without any issues. Plenty of space for 4 people to sleep, sit and lounge around.
The place itself is in a very convenient location. South of the river, but the freeway is very close, so by car/Uber/Lyft it's less than 10 minutes to the downtown area. The rooms have a pleasant view and are very quiet, making for a very tranquil setting to come back to after a day of exploring, eating and music!
We were lucky to have two great hosts. Always available to answer our questions and full of recommendations, Viviane and Michael made our stay in Austin even better!
Great place and great neighborhood. The larger space they have is two great rooms and a bathroom. Well worth the price. The hosts are lovely. Only slight drawback is no kitchen. But that's just fine with me!
Blomster var satt frem og verten møtte oss når vi kom frem, veldig hyggelig.
Vi fikk servert frokost hver morgen når vi var klare.
Rommene var som beskrevet i annonsen, rene og store. Vertene var veldig imøtekommende og hjelpsomme. CinnaMan lager svært gode ostekaker.
Rolig nabolag og ikke noe støy. Vi brukte parkering ved huset.
Kommer gjerne tilbake dersom vi er i Austin igjen :-) Kan anbefales.
Viviane and Michael were very hospitable and welcoming. They were flexible with our arrival and departure, which was fantastic. The rooms were well furnished and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and at the time of our choosing, also very convenient.Overall, we had a pleasant stay with Viviane and Michael.
visited on MotoGP weekend. Tower suite was great, bed was comfortable and accommodations were clean and private. We would love to stay there again when we return to Austin.
