Fantastic experience! The guest house was exactly as pictured and spotless when we arrived. Esteban's instructions prior to arrival were clear and he was a great host. The bed was extremely comfortable, the guest house spacious and perfect for a couple. The only thing the guest house could use is a place to hang clothes, but a simple clothing rack with a few hangers would do the trick. Loved the location, easy to drive to all the major hotspots in Austin. Would gladly stay here again!
I stayed here over Valentines Day and during the Austin Marathon and it is in a great location- close to a lot of good restaurants. The decorations were cute and quaint, everything was clean when we arrived and we met Maria on the way in who was gracious and nice. We were allowed to park in the driveway which was convenient and could come and go as we pleased at any time.
This place is so cute! Tastefully updated with lots of charm. The location on S. Lamar is perfect to hop downtown or to the shops on S. Congress. I would definitely stay here again.
I met Maria on my way in and she could not have made me feel more comfortable. The space was exactly right for my working weekend, secluded, quiet, with no TV to distract me. Convenient and close to everything in 78704, it was living in my old neighbourhood again.
Thanks Esteban and Maria!
For a first time visitor to Austin, you can't beat the location. Arrived late night on a very cold evening, below freezing temps. and the Guest House was warm and cozy. Nestled in the quite neighborhood of Zilker, we enjoyed our weekend stay very much. Able to come and go without bothering the owners Esteban and Maria, who were gracious host. The large sliding glazed doors on 2 sides open up to a small green courtyard which expands the interior space significantly. When the sun was shining we sat outside with music playing and were in paradise. Can't recommend this guest house more.
Our stay with Esteban was wonderful. The pictures accurately represented the location. It was very clean. The neighborhood appeared safe and in a good location. Esteban and his little pup could not have been more gracious. We would return.
A very cozy and comfy place nestled in the back surrounded by trees. At first it looks small, but its very spacious and very private. Esteban was very accomodating and laid back with checkin/checkout.
The perfect airbnb!
Esteban and his wife were wonderful hosts-- they made sure we had everything we needed and let us be.
The guest house and outdoor area are beautiful-- well maintained, spacious and great to hangout in. It's in a great neighborhood that's a 15/20 min walk or 5/10 min drive from SoCo or Downtown. In addition you can quickly walk out to great bars and restaurants on Lamar.
We will be recommending to everyone we know going to Austin!
Esteban's back house was wonderful and in an excellent location! Very close to Zilker Park and lots of great restaurants! We would definitely recommend Esteban's place. Just a note, keep in mind it is very minimal, be sure to bring cups, shampoo, wine opener, all the necessities.
Response from Esteban:
Dear Megan! Great advice, we really appreciate your feedback! We will now offer glass cups, shampoo and any other needed necessities.
My Russian friend and I stayed at Esteban's awesome guest house for the F1 race. We really enjoyed our time and would defintely stay again given the chance. Here are some highlights:
Host: ++ Esteban and his family were welcoming, easy-going, quickly responded to a couple of our requests, but also respected our privacy, a great experience!
Guest House (outside): ++ located in the back of the property, it is secluded, private, cozy, fenced off from the main house and neighbors, with a two-section patio, plenty of space to do a barbecue, savor a glass of somehting tasty and the fresh air :)
Guest House (inside): + very cozy, but also modern and recently remodeled, clean, perfect for a couple, romantic even, plenty of drawer space, a mircowave and a little fridge, comfy bed, nice big shower; - on the small minus side, there was no closet/place to hang clothes, and the sofa was not really suited for sleeping and did not unfold. I think a small TV would be a good addition to the room as well. We were two simple guys, so none of these things were a major issue for us. Esteban loaned us an air pad, which was perfect for sleeping on the floor. But I figure I mention them as a suggestion for improvements :)
Main Yard: + very green, lush vegetation on the yard, feels very natural, you almost forget you are in the city; it was also easy to walk from the driveway to the guest house without disturbing anyone.
Neighborhood: ++great locaton, green, quiet neighborhood, very close to Zilker Park, SoCo and Downtown, awesome if you like to relax and do the city thing on the same trip.
Thank you again, Esteban, for your hospitality! Hopefully, Russia is not drawn into the same World Cup group with Argentina tomorrow :)))
Esteban! Thank you for the incredible week that I spent in Austin. I travel a lot for work and I normally stay in hotels - I still cannot believe how wonderful and private your guest home is. Impeccably clean, beautiful yard and minutes from the convention I was working at. Thank you! See you next year!
