About Brian Stansberry
We have been providing furnished housing on Capitol Hill in Washington DC for 20 years, through our main business Capitol Hill Stay. But we've been coming to Austin since I was a fireman in Houston in the 1980s. And we spend months each winter in Austin, with the hope of retiring here. We are a veteran-owned small local business. We do this full time. This is our only source of income. We both traveled a great deal both in the military and in private business. Often it wasn't a great experience. So we decided when we started 20 years ago to try to provide the best lodging experience possible - pleasant, clean, professional, hassle-free, and in interesting, well-kept places. We also pride ourselves on being open to all. We do not discriminate and we welcome all.

Great place. Well run. Would definitely stay again. The room is light and airy. Very well appointed. The managers do a great job making it all easy.
Enrico: It was a pleasure having you. You are welcome back anytime.
I stayed at this property for a few weeks while I was in town for work and was so pleased with the neighborhood and area in addition to the guest house. The space itself had everything I needed and more. Brian was so easy to work with and extremely responsive. Check in and out was a breeze. I highly recommend this spot and even recommended it to co workers in the area who have frequent guests coming into town.
We Will Be Back
I loved everything about this studio. Very well appointed and in a great location. I will definitely rent here again anytime I need to visit Austin.
This cosy studio was perfect for my wife's and my for day visit to Austin.
This cosy studio was perfect for my wife's and my for day visit to Austin. Located in a nice quiet neighborhood with easy access to all Austin had to offer. We would stay there again.
We absolutely loved our stay at the guesthouse! It was exactly what we were looking for - very quiet and relaxing as opposed to the hustle and bustle of a hotel. We were provided with everything we needed for a great weekend getaway. The next time we visit Austin, this guesthouse will be our first choice.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
This is a very laid back neigborhood but we do expect guests to be reasonably quiet. No loud parties or gatherings. Quiet hours after 10 pm. Absolutely no smoking. Pets MAY be considered if requested in advance. Late moveout and early checkin MAY be possible with request in advance. One offstreet parking space is included. Street parking is plentiful. This is a quiet residential area and we request that guests respect that. Please note that we do have a one night minimum but generally if you want just one night on a weekend we are going to need to charge a higher rate, or if you want just one or two nights well for a date well in the future when the week or so on either side of your dates is not rented we may not be able to accommodate that or may need to set a higher nightly rate. Also we do try to get all the major festivals but Austin has a ton of festivals so if you're coming in for one of those and our nightly rate seems super low you may want to ask if it's accurate (no, you won't get SXSW lodging for $125 a night). We may require a photo ID within 24 hours of booking. The credit card used must be in the name of the person booking the stay. Please inquire for details.
