The Space

As Seen on HGTV’s “What’s With THAT House?”

“Central, Yet Secluded” Near 45th & Duval in historic Hyde Park.

$190 a night. Four night minimum stay please.

(Hot Tub!)

Queen-sized bed, two comfy couches, and one or two large air mattresses. Up to four persons easy.

Many, many amenities, including:
Yard contains dozens of exotic palm trees and bamboo groves. Bamboo cabinets and counter tops too! SECLUDED HOT TUB IN A BAMBOO GROVE, decorated, lighted carport, big ass backyard, outdoor seating and lighting, COVERED off-street parking for vehicles, full size washer/dryer, private shaded back yard, ceiling fans, fully furnished kitchen, large library, lots of artwork, (website hidden) cable, Roku2 box/Wii, WiFi, land line, office with PC, scanner/ copier, nice walk to ‘downtown’ Hyde Park, (website hidden)

Two blocks to Cap Metro bus Route #7 (Duval) (website hidden)
7 minutes to DT, 12 minutes to ABIA (straight shot down Airport Blvd.) (website hidden) Located near 45th/Airport Blvd./IH35, but on a secluded cul-de-sac.

Like pretty much everywhere in Austin, Hyde Park has a nice collection of food carts. (website hidden)

Kitchen stocked with every conceivable utensil and condiment. Nice new bamboo counter tops. Bathroom is clean but a little worse for the wear and tear. Hardwood floors, ceiling fans. Lots of original artwork on the walls.

House was featured on HGTV's "What's With THAT House?" in February, 2006. Site of numerous tapings, parties, seders, weddings, special events and displays. Site of the Austin's annual Flag Day Parade & Celebration (June 14th). A very "Keep Austin Weird" household.

House is home to one small Siamese cat, Emma, who will probably just sniff at you and then ignore you. Sorry, no pets allowed. (Emma put her paw down.) No smoking in the house. Deposit, references and a good vibe kindly requested.

Vegetarians & Vexillologists, Public/Community Radio Fans, Yellow Dog Democrats, Bamboo Buddies & Burners Welcome.

Guest Access

Coded lock box with entrance door keys. Easy access 24/7.

Interaction with Guests

Meet and greet!

The Neighborhood

Hyde Park! Austin's original 'suburb.' Nice neighborhood right in the middle of Austin. Lotsa' cool little stores and parks and 'Keep Austin Weirdness.'
A bit away from the DT/6th/Capital madness. Straight shot down Red River to downtown. Striaght shot down Airport Blvd to the airport.

Getting Around

Hyde Park is VERY central to most/all of Austin. 10-12 minutes to D/T and airport.
Light rail! Buses with bike racks. Uber and Lyft and Yellow Cab.

Other Things to Note

Huge collection of signs and collectibles from all over Texas and all over the world.
Covered motorcycle and automobile parking for up to three cars and >eight bikes! Off street and safe.
