About Lyon Gegenheimer
I love entertaining friends and family and hosting guests. I have a degree in Architecture but do not get the opportunity in my professional life to use it. Through property investments and renovations I get to utilize my design skills and attention to detail. I love remodeling properties and seeing spaces change. When traveling I like to splurge on luxury or historically interesting spaces. My hotel or residence, while out of town, must be relaxing and pampering. Traveling for me is all about experiencing the local culture and flavor, especially regional cafes & bars. The design and decor of my guest house was implemented with the thought, "where would I want to stay?"
Lyon Gegenheimer purchased this House in 2005
Why Lyon Gegenheimer chose East Cesar Chavez
This neighborhood is fantastic. We are 4 blocks from the shores of Lady Bird Lake and the Hike & Bike trail that leads to the City of Austin boat house where you can rent kayaks & paddle boards. We are 6 blocks to the Rainey Street entertainment district, 7 blocks to the E. 6th Street entertainment district, and 2 blocks from the E. Cesar Chavez bar district. Within two blocks of the property you will find Bufalina Neopolitan Pizza, Eastside Tavern & Roof top bar, Cenote Coffee Shop, Flat Track Coffee, Kerlin BBQ, Veracruz All Natural, Las Trancas Tacos, Zeke's Fine Liquors, Weatherup Cocktail Lounge, Fast Folks Cyclery & Cafe and The Scoot Inn Bar & Music Venue. Surprisingly we are in a quiet peaceful street where you can get a great nights sleep, but only steps away from all the cool fun spots Austin has to offer!
What makes this House unique
This property is the owner's personal next door guesthouse. As opposed to a vacation rental where you find the minimum (like 2 spoons, 2 coffee cups, 2 towels), this luxurious home is outfitted to the MAXIMUM. Over a dozen towels, kitchen stocked to prepare a gourmet meal (including small appliances), laundry soap, dish soap, dishwasher tablets, toilet paper, paper towels, place mats and cloth napkins for a fancy dinner. Even a ice chest and beach towels that guests can take with them to go boating or tubing. A huge choice of cocktail glasses & wine glasses. Ice maker in the wet bar. Steam sauna in the shower with essential oils supplied for aromatherapy function. There is even a turkey roaster for our Thanksgiving guests. If the house doesn't have it, let me know, and I'll bring it over from my house.

One of the best vacation homes!
Would stay here again, perfect place for a group of 8. Spacious, very clean, had everything we needed. Awesome backyard and screened in porch. Owner was very accommodating and great communication. Location was close to everything!
This is a great house! It had everything we needed and more! The bungalow is adorable and the steam showers were a great touch! It was close enough to walk places and Lyft/Uber prices were reasonable. Would definitely stay again if we come back through Austin! Thanks!!
Best place to stay for a small group visiting Austin!
The attention to detail was amazing. House was well stocked. Fantastic location. Knowledgeable host. We give this place 10/10!
Love this place!
Great house - we were 8 adults and 2 little ones - it was perfect. Beautiful house with well appointed furnishings, amazing beds, stocked kitchen and updated beautiful bathrooms! Wed stay here again! Close to the east side “scene” and a short UBER away from anything else. Thanks for a great spot!
Our group really enjoyed our stay. Conveniently located to many things and cheap uber rides.
Beautiful home, Amazing location!!!!
Lyons home in Austin, TX is absolutely everything and more. Exactly as pictured. Extremely clean, and homey. It was in the perfect location as well. Walking distance from Rainey street, and a short Uber ride to every other activity we did. (Lake Austin, Pedal Tour in the city, etc). Absolutely perfect for my friends bachelorette party. There is also a cabinet filled with bachlorette items that I read about in a prior review, which was so cute and fun! (We contributed our decor, cups and napkins for the cabinet as well so definitely use the adorable banners I left!!!)
