About Veronica Trevisan

We have worked in publishing, theater, film and music. We have created an enclave of houses that are both relaxing, unique and interesting. We have rotating exhibits of local artists hanging in our houses and there are two art installations in the backyard sheds--the 'Wonder Cabinet' and the 'Grotto'.

Veronica Trevisan purchased this house in 1991

Why Veronica Trevisan chose Austin

We fell in love with this neighborhood. It was filled with families who had lived there 2 and 3 generations and had a lot of unique Central Texas flavor. It has gentrified in the years since we purchased our property, but has been filled with other unique people who are trying to preserve this downtown neighborhood, while quickly becoming part of the downtown scene.

What makes this house unique

The property is a part of the disappearing 'old Austin'. It harkens back to a much simpler time, but is right in the middle of modern activity. It's an old Austin oasis in a quickly changing neighborhood.

The shared Gardens are a relaxing place to unwind and enjoy leisurely Austin comfort--with a downtown skyline view!

There are also two other vacation rentals in the same compound. We often have family/friends that rent the entire compound for holidays or events.

Charming Bungalow and Gardens in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay and plan to return on our next visit to Austin. A charming bungalow in a great location. We have stayed in many homes/apartments during our travels and yours is one of the nicest. Martha was also so kind and helpful.

Great, Relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This was a cute little bungalow, but plenty of room for 4 people to stay in. Nice to have the patio and little back garden too with a BBQ to cook on. They had everything we needed to cook with, towels, even blowdryer and first aide kit. Debora and Lorne were fantastic and made sure we had everything we needed. Payments were easy and refund was timely. I will definitely stay again if I have the chance.

Thankfully, Precisely as Presented Online - No surprises

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from moving our son and daughter-in-law into their new home in Austin this past weekend. While there we rented the bungalow in hopes of having a nice, quiet, clean place to resort to after wrestling with the heat of Austin and the chore of packing and unpacking. This property was one of several that fit for location and price, but had certain additional assets that caused me to choose it.

Eponymous Gardens, unlike many VRBOs listings, allowed for a 2 night minimum. I like that. Often, once you arrive you can extend your stay if needed, but not be obliged to before actually seeing the place and sleeping on the bed.

As for the house itself, I think the outdoor picture can be deceiving. The house is exceptionally clean, spacious, and airy with lots of light. Loved the front and back porches. The backyard deck w grill offered kids a good excuse to come rest a little from moving in, while Dad cooked out, creating additional memories before saying good-byes.

I suppose what surprised me THE most during our stay was how amazingly quiet it was despite the fact we were so close to downtown! A lot of “out in the country” nature sounds. And of course being greeted by a nice rain while we were there didn’t hurt any. During the day occasional neighborly visits were heard and one night beautiful music from a nearby wedding floated our way. Otherwise really felt tucked away, out in the country.

As for the bed, I have low back trouble so finding a good bed is hard for me. Though I prefer a queen or king, this one slept well enough for me. But my husband who is very picky really loved it. He's pretty picky about everything and loved everything about this house, inside and out. In fact, all of it really began to grow on both of us the longer we were there.

In a nutshell, our likes: Clean, Roomy, Light, Quiet, Good Location, Privacy, 2 screen doors w/locks, Front porch, Back deck w/ cooker and table for 4, great air conditioner, adequate parking.

Personal preferences I missed? Two bedside tables w/ lamps, rather than one as I'm a big night time reader.

By time we left we almost felt like part of the community. Homes are so much better than hotels when you can find a good one. There's something about hearing a screen door slap behind you, neighbors laughing and chatting over fences that makes you feel like you're home.

Thanks y'all! We'll be back!

Philadelphians want to move IN!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first trip to Austin, TX and the first Homeaway experience for my husband and I, and both the city and the Garden Bungalow were fabulous! We came east from Philadelphia, and we stopped first in San Antonio before we headed north to Austin. I really appreciated the quick and informative communication between Lorne and myself to set up the arrangements, and to make us feel very comfortable about what to expect upon our arrival and who was to assist us. The bungalow is located in East Austin which is a colorful neighborhood with restaurants, shops, bazaars, markets, library, food trucks, etc. within a comfortable walking distance of the bungalow, and we easily walked into downtown Austin as well. Deborah greeted us and toured us around the bungalow and compound - she is lovely! She was very patient with our questions about the household amenities and the neighborhood highlights. The garden bungalow is lovely - a simply sweet home with great design, decor, and energy. The kitchen was fully stocked to cook almost any meal, and if we needed something in addition, Deborah found it for us. Coca-Cola was in the frig as a welcoming treat, and there were spices and oils from previous travelers, and we left some too for the next guest! We spent two hours in the flagship Whole Food store romping around the aisles and loading up our cart - what fun!! Back at the bungalow I loved the bathroom shower, and the quick drying towels that I am running out to buy when I get home. The bedrooms were spacious with plenty of storage drawers and closets, and the beautiful hardwood floors cover the entire floor plan. We were able to wash and dry our clothes right there, so you do not need to bring a lot of luggage. My husband and I hung out a lot at the bungalow, because it was so comfortable and we were just happy to be anywhere in Austin. The vegetation in the garden secluded us, the artwork and "exhibits" intrigued us, and the variety of birds entertained us as we lounged on the back deck with the covered table and chairs to protect us from the hot sun, and we were also able to grill out and enjoy a late night dinner under the clear Texan sky. Every day we headed to the hot tub for a relaxing, private soak. There were other travelers close by in adjacent "aways" in the compound, but we only occasionally saw them and they were very friendly and having a good time as well. We will be back as we told Deborah at our departure. Austin is a super friendly city!

Absolutely Fabulous!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW....what a lovely property. Our family was seeking a relaxing vacation at a property that felt like home. We "hit it on the nail" with the Eponymous Garden Bungalow. The layout and amenities of the rental were fabulous. It is very well maintained and close to all of the attractions Austin has to offer. The property owner as well as property manager were great to work with......very attentive, professional and welcoming. The next time we are in
Austin, we plan to stay there again. We would highly recommend.

I'd rather not share the Bungalow . . .

But, that would be too selfish.

This is THE BEST Downtown Austin location, in a historic, eclectic/funky neighborhood, with fun bars, restaurants, and shops, all within walking distance, all within the hottest "new" area in Austin.

The Bungalow is extremely clean, well-maintained, and comfortable, and the owners have thought of everything (wireless, coffee service, numerous amenities). Sit on the back deck overlooking the Garden, or hang out in the coolest "Grotto" in the backyard (a late 1800's shed with an amazing collection of visually interesting artifacts - a must see). Take a hot tub, or grill out on the deck. So much to do here, you might not make it out to see all that's nearby.

This is my 2nd stay in the Bungalow, and I'm done looking for a place to stay in Austin. I still really can't believe you can rent this place so affordably and be this close to everything that Downtown Austin has to offer. Walking through this neighborhood and checking out all of the creative houses, yards and gardens, and restored homes, is a really fun way to get an impression of just how neat this area is. And, the Bungalow is in the heart of it all. It's a perfect "home base" for your Austin experience.

Can't say enough about Lorne and Deborah. They are great, thoughtful hosts, and are really easy to work with. The whole experience has been a fun discovery, and I can't wait to return for some more Austin adventures.

Thanks again for everything!

Chris
