About the property

Located in historic Tarrytown, the walls of this 1940's duplex inspire with their original paintings and photographs. Stroll the quiet neighborhood streets, bask in the sun at the next door park, or adventure into the city by greenbelt.

Smile more, sweat less - this is the truth we discovered from our own Faraday bikes. We love them so much, we got a few to share with guests so they can experience Austin the real way - on two wheels! Just charge them up and go!

Large windows and sleek design give this space an open and airy feel. Located along the banks of Johnson Creek, the lush bamboo and towering Oak and Pecan trees make the Central Austin Winsted Bungalow the perfect urban retreat for two!

The open floor plan offers a cozy place to sleep and a nice living area to relax. The kitchen and dining area are perfect for two and stocked with the necesities to cook up a good meal. The bathroom is tiny and the shower is tiny, tiny - get's the job done, but not the ideal place to hangout and party.

Guests will use a unique entry code to enter the Bungalow. Enjoy the private back patio and charcoal grill. Take note, that this is a TV free space, come ready to slow down and read a book or bring a device to enjoy a show via high-speed internet access.

The bungalow is self contained and very private - one side of our duplex home. If we are in town and you'd like to meet, we'd love to chat. Need recommendations? Allix is a native of Central Austin and loves being outside. César is a restaurant snob and music lover. Our combined expertise can provide endless options of fun to be had.

Things to note:

The Missouri Pacific Railroad runs down the middle of the Mopac Expressway and the bungalow is located approximately 500 feet from the tracks. The noise doesn't bother most people, but if you are a light sleeper, consider bringing earplugs.

This is a duplex. Your hosts live on the other side. We are generally quiet and respectful of the shared wall, but we do blend smoothies, grind coffee, talk, and occasionally watch movies. It is not a sound-proof box :)

The shower is tiny and can take a moment to warm up. It's an old house and the plumbing is such that hot water lands at this shower last. In the coldest months, it may take a minute to reach the shower head, just let it run - it's coming.

There is free street parking directly in front of the house. Please park on the right side of the road directly in front of the house. Most neighbors also park on the street and we like to respect the unofficial neighborly boundaries.

Traveling with little ones? Upon request and when available, we can provide up to two Pack 'N Plays.

Wow! Fantastic location, room was even better than pictures, and the electric bikes were the highlight of our trip. Would definitely come back here again!
