About the owner...
I'm very passionate about entertaining friends and family and hosting guests. My degree is in Architecture, however, I don't get to use it in my professional life.

Revisioning this bungalow was a dream come true. The remodel was to the highest possible standard, and completed with the thought, 'where would I want to stay?' I sometimes call it 'the honeymoon suite' because I think it is intimate, private and fun. The perfect spot for a romantic get-away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I'm very passionate about entertaining friends and family and hosting guests. My degree is in Architecture, however, I don't get to use it in my professional life. Revisioning this bungalow was a dream come true. The remodel was to the highest possible standard, and completed with the thought, 'where would I want to stay?' I sometimes call it 'the honeymoon suite' because I think it is intimate, private and fun. The perfect spot for a romantic get-away.

Why the Owner Chose East Cesar Chavez, Austin, TX, USA:
I live on the block and am always nearby should you ever need anything during your stay. The location is amazing, one block from the Historic Willow-Spence Nationally Registered Neighborhood. It is walking distance to Downtown Austin, the Convention Center, Lady Bird Lake, the Rainey Street District and East 6th Street Entertainment District.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
I love walking to Lady Bird Lake and renting a paddleboard, kayak or canoe only a few blocks from the house at The Expedition School. Half a block from the house are fantastic art galleries on Cesar Chavez and Cafes and Coffee shops nearby at the Rainey Street District & the East 6th Street Entertainment District. I often walk downtown to listen to music, eat & drink. Or more often take a $5 cab ride (save my feet) and then bar hop throughout downtown and walk back home at the end of my night.
