Visit the new 2nd Street Shopping District to catch a movie and shop local boutiques as well as high-end specialty stores. There are dozens of cafes, coffee houses, bars and restaurants to suit every taste imaginable. If you would like a tour of downtown Austin, hop aboard the Austin Duck Tour which is a boat-on-wheels! The tour guide will fill you in on Austin history while driving you around the downtown area and ultimately into the lake for a quick boat ride near Hula Hut and Mozart's Coffeehouse before returning you to your original destination.

                              About the owner: This is our guest house, newly constructed this year. It is in a setting where guests can enjoy privacy.

We want to maintain the family oriented environment, and ask our guests to respect the neighborhood. No parties please.

We are within walking distance of numerous restaurants, the hike and bike trails, Zilker Park (short walk to ACL!) and shopping. It is perfect place to stay when coming in for ACL, SXSW, Film Festival, Austin Kite Festival, UT football games, XGames. It's a walk or short taxi ride from downtown and UT.
