About the property

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

Whether you're in Austin for business, a romantic getaway, or one of the city's countless festivals, this spacious and inviting 1-bed, 1.5-bath casita is the perfect home base! Beautiful and bright bedroom has vaulted ceilings and a cozy queen bed, and the spacious downstairs living area serves as a second bedroom with a striking queen-size pullout sofa.

The incredible outdoor patio, shared with the main house, is a great hangout—a big, shady tree grows straight up from the deck, and lovely cushioned furniture seats 12.

With plenty of restaurants and food trucks within walking distance, this casita is a foodie's paradise! Savor arepas and empanadas at Four Brothers food truck -- just 2 minutes away on foot -- or dine at the renowned Winebelly -- named a "Top 20 Wine Bar in America" by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. You're also minutes from gorgeous parks—Zilker is 1.7 miles away, and Town Lake's beautiful views await less than 2 miles away.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

From the carport, wind through the backyard and up the beautiful outdoor patio, where a shady tree grows up from the floorboards! Comfy, bright-colored outdoor furniture offers seating for 12; deck is shared with the main house. Step through the expansive screened in-porch and make your way into the casita's open living room, stocked with an attractive queen sleeper sofa, big windows, and a 40” flatscreen with DirecTV. ½ bath is simple and clean.

Fully equipped kitchen and adjacent dining area are open to the living room. In the kitchen, there's plenty of work space for cooking a big meal or to for putting together tasty snacks for a trip to Barton Springs, as well as an island with bar seating and a fluffy white coach.

The magical master bedroom is located upstairs in the loft. Features a luxe queen-size Tuft & Needle mattress bed and warm decor below a vaulted ceiling. Plenty of natural light, walk-in closet, and space for a blow-up mattress. Clean and elegant en suite bath has a stand-up rain shower.

Note: Schwinn A.C. Sport Indoor Spin Bike located in the screen porch by the guest's front door entrance. Guests have full access to the bike.

THE LOCATION

Access all the best parts of Austin without ever getting into a car! This adorable casita is steps away from South 1st Street's fantastic restaurants and shops. Start your morning off at Elizabeth Street Cafe for a fresh baked croissant and French press coffee, then explore the unique vintage shops up and down South 1st.

Take a short walk east to South Congress Avenue for unique gifts and killer footwear at Uncommon Objects and Allen Boots, then catch a great local band at the Continental Club, known as "the granddaddy of local music venues.” Downtown Austin is just five minutes away via the Capital Metro, located just up the street.

One of my top priorities when traveling is being able to get around on foot. This (lovely, comfortable) spot fit the bill perfectly. I thoroughly enjoyed the space and the location.

Quiet guesthouse in South Austin

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a cozy vacation rental within walking distance to Austin's great restaurants and music venues along South First and South Congress, you'll be happy here. Tucked away behind a friendly family's main house, there is a shady shared deck and screened room. The kitchen is well stocked and the master bathroom spacious. The decor is tasteful. However, the bed was not as comfortable as most places we have stayed.

Delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a comfortable week here as a couple. The guest house was well furnished and immaculate inside. Jennifer and Jeremy were friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. The location was very convenient to most of our Austin destinations. The only negative was that we had extra guests for a few nights and the hide-a-bed couch was not up to par. We ended up with a quick trip to Wal Mart for a cheap air mattress that was much more comfortable.
