Your space is a private studio apartment with its own living space, full size bed and full bathroom and private entry. Free street parking in front of the property.
The dogtrot style of home was common throughout the South during the 19th and early 20th centuries. This home is a 21st century take on this unique design. A breezeway through the center of the house provides a common outdoor living space while providing privacy between the two living units. Open the large exterior barndoors to increase light and air flow, or close when desiring privacy and intimacy. All natural materials were used throughout the home for a warmer more traditional feel.
The property sits just East of downtown - less than a mile from Rainy and East 6th. street, very popular for local food and drinks. SXSX Fader Fort is a few streets north, while a 1.5 mile jaunt through neighborhoods takes you to the Austin Convention Center. Within a 5-minute walk to Lady Bird Lake, a casual 10-minute bike ride to downtown and a 12-minute drive to Bergstrom International Airport. Also a nearby convenient store and laundromat just two block away. East Austin has many unique local restaurants and bars within minutes from the house. Check out Yelp and OpenTable for popular recommendations. Pedicabs and buses can take you to and from without dealing with parking and a downtown shuttle stop a 10 second walk away.

Really loved Roman and Andrea's apartment - it was exactly as described and in a great location. I was in Austin for SXSW and could walk to everything within around 1.5-2 miles -- just far enough away for it to be peaceful.
Roman recommended a great restaurant called Laundrette which was a five min walk away. Fresh towels, shampoo/conditioner and beers in the fridge - better than being in a hotel. If I'm back in Austin in the future, I'll definitely stay here.
Beautiful home with welcoming, experienced hosts. Description of accommodations was perfect. We loved the neighborhood with all the different architecture of the homes. Tons of great places nearby for dining/drinking/coffee. Also, neighborhood is well serviced by Uber if you want to go out and not worry about driving. Roman / Andrea's home is just around the corner from this amazing running/biking trail on the river which is perfect for a short or long run. Would definitely stay here the next time we're in Austin!
Roman and Andrea were great hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed and suggested things to do in the neighborhood. Their house is beautiful and the studio was cozy and clean - just as in the pictures. We would definitely stay here again!
Andrea and Roman were the sweetest hosts! Nothing was too much trouble. We arrived late on a Friday night and there was a couple of local beers waiting for us. Welcome after our travels. The tiny house is exactly as it is in the photos. The bathroom exceptional. Location is an easy walk up to East Austin. We loved our stay at Andrea and Roman's and would definitely stay again!
Roman and Andrea's studio is very well presented and comfortable for two. The bathroom was stocked with organic products. Walking distance from the brilliant Rainey St, convenience store and the hike-and-bike trail. A car is recommended for getting around Austin, just make sure you're familiar with the one-way streets in Downtown.
We had an awesome time with Roman and Andrea and shared travel stories and experiences who were very welcoming and happy to suggest things to do (and BBQ to eat!). The neighbourhood is a 5 minute drive to Downtown and is very quiet. If you're coming to Austin, stay with these two!
Roman and Andrea were perfect hosts and particularly helpful as we were planning our trip. We loved staying at their place. It is beautifully built, and exactly as pictured - very clean, very comfortable, and close to everything.
Excellent little place. Clean, private, and nicely furnished. Had pretty much what we needed except a small fridge to keep yogourt for breakfast or a beer or two. That said, I would not hesitate to recommend staying at this place. Well located for walking and access to some really funky and delicious restaurants and pubs. Make sure to ask Roman and Andrea for advice as they won't steer you wrong. I highly suggest this place and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Born and raised in NW Austin and now living and working Central. I'm a member of Austin's most provocative and romantic cycling organizations, Team Shred Monster. Being a professional-amateur-international athlete is supplemented by my career as an advertising creative. My international travels have taken me through Canada, Mexico, Belize, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, British Virgin Islands and Brazil, which have all been amazing in their own ways, but I find my domestic travels to be the most exciting and memorable. The US possesses incredible lands, food and people.
