About Ann Giles
I am a native Austinite who loves restoring old houses. I bought my first house as a young, single woman in 1995 and restored it with my dad. When I married, we converted that house to a rental and moved into the main house on this property, then also a fixer-upper. A few years later we purchased the guest cottage from an older property that was being demolished and moved it here. Four children and 20 some years later, we finished the renovations of both and decided to get out of downtown and on to the next project. A few of the children are now old enough to help out in the business, so we have started a concierge service to help support our guests (AustinNests.com). We hope you enjoy the house!
Ann Giles purchased this House in 2002
Why Ann Giles chose Zilker
We fell in love with this property when we discovered it. We love that it is set back far from the street on a quiet hilltop with gentle breezes blowing through the trees. Even though it feels secluded, you are right smack in the middle of the City--only minutes from downtown and walking distance to Zilker Park and Barton Springs.

Austin guest house
This bungalow is very well designed for guests and includes a private patio. We rented this along with adjoining hilltop home and were able to accommodate extended family.
Excellent stay in Austin. Lovely home and neighborhood.
This was a fantastic place to stay if you are visiting Austin. The space was decorated well and very neat and clean. There was plenty of space for my husband, our 1-year-old and myself. We were able to walk to the nearby restaurants and shops on Lamar as well as to the park (approx 20 min walk). We had a great time and would gladly stay there again.
Perfect Location Perfect Host Perfect Place!
This bungalow was absolutely perfect! The location was private and quiet, yet minutes from EVERYTHING. The bungalow was an exquisite combination of boho chic and mid-century modern. Slept great on the comfy bed all 3 nights. And most importantly, Ann was immediately responsive to any request or question we had, while respecting our privacy (delivering coffee to the doorstep early in the morning, for instance). It was one of our favorite VRBOs, and we've had many!
Sweet space in a terrific location.
The owner was super helpful and the space was clean, beautifully presented, and equipped for every need. I so appreciated the hospitality.
Perfect Weekend Getaway
My mom and I had a wonderful two night stay while in Austin visiting my sister. The bungalow is charming and in a perfect location. We can't wait to return!
Comfortable & cozy
