Want a true Austin experience? Come to The B Hive: We are located in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Austin. Hyde Park is a diversely aged community. With 50 year residents, young families, artists, and college students - and most of them walk, jog or bike by the fabulous front porch. With the Elisabet Ney museum across the street and 100+ year old homes you can get a great feeling for what our city is all about.

Well stocked modern kitchen! : With a kitchen island, bar stools, little kitchen table, ice maker, filtered water and well stocked pantry. All the pots and pans you could want. We also have many small appliances - hand mixer, toaster, coffee grinder, coffee maker, french press (can you tell we like coffee?) We also provide locally roasted - You won't be lacking for anything.

Baths: Two bathrooms each with shower - one is brand new with glass tiles and a rain shower head. Oversized 1920's claw foot tub in front bath. Organic cotton plush towels, some amenities, vintage styling.

Outdoor Space: Back yard is fully fenced for kids and dogs. Great back yard patio with table, grassy area and gas grill.

Front Porch: Fabulous front porch with a ceiling fan for the hot months and lap blankets for the cold ones. Go back in time to the early 1900's and sit on the porch with a cold or warm drink or snack. Enjoy the old charm of our neighborhood. Waste some time watching everyone go by!

Close to UT : 15 minute walk to the stadium or just jump on the bus! Three miles from downtown. Two blocks from bus stop - One block from Shipe Park, Fresh Plus Grocery, Asti Trattoria, Quack's Bakery, Julio's Mexican Café and Hyde Park Bar and Grill - Just to name a few.

As a family we love to camp, travel, bike (of course), watch movies, see live music, being with our family, being with our “village” and just being together.

                              Why the Owner Chose Hyde Park:
                              We have lived in Hyde Park for 17 years. What a great little neighborhood! When we wanted to host folks in Austin we decided to buy this house as a short term vacation rental. The bungalow was built in 1927 and we have big plans for it. It has obviously been renovated but more can be done! Simple things like the dining room chandelier actually hanging over the dining table to completely changing the kitchen configuration. Eventually the garage will be turned into a detached sleeping porch, with the idea of having parties/wedding receptions out there or simply renting it out along with the house. So come back and see the evolution of this charming house. The name? Well, Eric and I came up with the name based on how lively the corner of Avenue H and 44th St. is. Why not “Bee” instead of “B”? Twenty years ago when Eric and I got engaged we started calling each other “B”. It has just stuck. This house is a labor of love from both of us so it just seemed apropos. No one but us knows what “B” stands for. It’s just too silly to say out loud.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The B Hive has a welcoming, safe feel to it. The previous owners, our fabulous guests, and our family have left a vibe that cannot be described. This wonderful house is, also, in an amazing location. On two dead ends you can sit on the porch and watch the neighborhood go by. Which they do! On bike, skate board, walking, running, pushing strollers, talking, laughing,..... If someone rings a bike bell wave!
