About Susana

This is our guest house, newly constructed this year. It is in a setting where guests can enjoy privacy. The Zilker neighborhood is a very interactive place where neighbors know each other, take walks, ride bikes. We want to maintain the family oriented environment, and ask our guests to respect the neighborhood. No parties please.

Susana purchased this house in 2013

Why Susana chose Austin

We live in the heart of Austin, a vibrant city with much to offer. We are within walking distance of numerous restaurants, the hike and bike trails, Zilker Park (short walk to ACL!) and shopping. It is perfect place to stay when coming in for ACL, SXSW, Film Festival, Austin Kite Festival, UT football games, XGames. It's a walk or short taxi ride from downtown and UT.

What makes this house unique

The guest house is newly constructed. The best feature is the incredible downtown view.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just stayed here for a weekend getaway from the NYC area. Everything was so seamless from being able to park our rental car right in the driveway to being able to access the place easily with the code provided by the owner and not having to deal with picking up and dropping off keys. The unit was BEAUTIFUL and the owner welcomed us with a small generous gift which was such a nice touch. The pictures are exactly what the unit looks like which is always a plus. The one picture that is not shown was the rain fall shower which was such a nice touch. Being able to enjoy our morning coffee on our private deck was something that no hotel can offer you. The location is perfect. You are in the heart of South Austin and only a five minute drive from downtown. The only thing feedback I would give the owner is the coffee maker needs to be replaced. The drip does not work properly and created steam so the coffee maker does not brew a proper pot. Therefore we had to boil water and pour it over the coffee grounds. Other than that I can't say enough good things this place. We will definitely be staying here the next time we are in town.

Nice, new, clean, and bike-friendly

  • 5 of 5

Rented for 4 days during the U.S. Cyclocross National Championship as home base for 2 masters racers. It was comfortable and close to everything. The proximity to Austin B-cycle was great and allowed for car-free trips to Whole Foods and nightlife. Highly recommended!

Updated, clean, close to where we wanted to be!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this casita! It was easy to find, had all the amenities you'd need (and then some), a SPECTACULAR view, close to everything, off street parking, very nice owner who was easy to get a hold of, was well kept and updated....I'm not really sure what else you'd want. The only thing to keep in mind....there's a spiral staircase inside in case you have someone that isn't "nimble".

I'd definitely recommend this place :)

Jog or bike on Lady Bird Lake trails or rent a canoe. Nearby restaurants include Shady Grove (family friendly local place which often has live music), Austin Java, Uncle Billy's BBQ and microbrewery, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Baby A's Tex-Mex (home of the purple margarita), Daily Juice and Flipnotics Coffee.

Head east a few blocks to shop in the nearby South Congress (SoCo) district. Find thrift stores, vintage shops, a costume store, candy store, antique and clothing stores, etc. Grab a pizza at Homeslice, relax at Sunday brunch at South Congress Cafe or the Woodland, enjoy Italian at the delicious Vespaio Restaruant, see a local band at the Continental Club, play a round of mini-golf at Peter Pan Golf (walking distance), or check out a play at Zach Scott Theater (walking distance). Don't forget to stop on the S. Congress bridge and check out the bats!

South 1st Street is also a few blocks from the home and is a street lined with authentic Mexican pastry shops, antique stores, record stores, boutiques and Polvo's Mexican Restaurant.

A 5 minute drive will get you to the heart of downtown where you can visit the world famous 6th Street, home of wall-to-wall bars and live music every night of the week. Visit the new 2nd Street Shopping District to catch a movie and shop local boutiques as well as high-end specialty stores. There are dozens of cafes, coffee houses, bars and restaurants to suit every taste imaginable. If you would like a tour of downtown Austin, hop aboard the Austin Duck Tour which is a boat-on-wheels! The tour guide will fill you in on Austin history while driving you around the downtown area and ultimately into the lake for a quick boat ride near Hula Hut and Mozart's Coffeehouse before returning you to your original destination.

Looking for a 24-hour eatery? Check out Magnolia Cafe or Kerby Lane Cafe.
