About Tom Nieman

My husband, son and I bought this house in 2010. The guest house was in rough shape until we renovated it in 2011. It is cozy, peaceful place to spend the afternoon and we are sure you will love it as much as we do.

Wonderful, relaxing stay close to downtown Austin

  • 5 of 5
This property is a very good choice. Everything is as it is described. Very well maintained and clean. It was a perfect stay. We didn't need anything from the landlord.
We can absolutely recommend this property.

Stellar. This Rental Is Nearly Perfect.

  • 5 of 5
This rental is everything listed, plus more. In terms of size, its perfect for 3-4 people. The upstairs loft sleeps two, and in our scenario, the owner even provided a Queen sized air mattress for our third guest. Not a cheap, takes-forever-to-pump air mattress, it was an Aerobed that blew up in 30 seconds and had a built in air pump. My reason for divulging this information is to show the constant attention to quality incorporated into this rental. With a modern touch, the floors are great, the couch is comfy, dual ceiling fans and ultra quiet air conditioners were perfect. Separated from the main house, the owner made it as if we weren't even there, and that was amazing. Located in the Austin suburbs, its literally less than a minute from the city by car. Traveling back and fourth to/from the center of the city is a cinch, and if you need to travel a distance, the closest highway is literally right down the block. In Austin there are a ton of fun restaurants and bars. Great food and lots of live music are second nature to this city. From the shops on South Congress (SoCo) to the houses converted to restaurants and bars on Rainey Street, or the legendary 6th avenue, Austin is sure to provide a great time. If food and drink is not your thing, there are multiple tours available of the capital area, Segway tours of the city and local bat community, and fun BBQ joints to explore! Have Fun!!!

Awesome Austin Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
This place is such a terrific find. The space itself is wonderful – tastefully decorated, very clean, well maintained, and extremely comfortable. It was so nice to have the little kitchen area and the washer/dryer. Internet, high definition television and coffee were also provided. It is a great place to come back to after a day or night out and about in Austin.

The location is perfect – very close to downtown Austin, giving you easy access to all that that section of the city has to offer. I was pleasantly surprised to discover, too, how much there was to take advantage of just in the neighborhood immediately surrounding the house. The owners (who are on site) provided a book with lots of restaurant suggestions and general information about the area, which included menus from a few restaurants/cafes just a ten-minute walk away.

I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Austin.

Excellent space for any Austin events or vacation

  • 4 of 5
This is a perfect space for a couple or small family. Has a tranquil, relaxing feel especially after a long day/night around town. The sofa sucks your right in, as a good sofa should. Great location, couple stores nearby and the Magnolia Café is 5min away, which is open 24hrs. In a very nice neighborhood close to downtown, easy access by bike/car. I rented a bike for the week during SXSW and it was ideal for getting to and from downtown from the home. Interior decor is very well designed and maintained. Great communication with owners. They were very helpful with any questions I had. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean, Quiet and Close to Downtown.

  • 4 of 5
This guest house is a beautifully converted garage - first floor is living/dining/bath/laundry area and the entire upstairs is a loft bedroom. Bed is comfy, and plenty of linens to keep warm. The small closet and dresser are enough room for two. Everything looks brand new - clean, not lived in. Very comparable to a suite hotel stay.

The apartment is also in a part of town I don't get to stay in often. It's a residential neighborhood, just west of downtown. Easy access to the center of Austin, for sure. I work downtown when I'm here, so this was great for me. There are also several restaurants/coffee shops within walking distance, and the owners provide a great book with menus/contact info. Internet access was solid - no dropped signals, etc.

Couple minor things for me, but probably not a big deal to everyone else: It is a little awkward to have the restroom so far from the bedroom (getting ready in the morning, etc.). Parking in front of the main house, and walking down the private drive with several motion-triggered floodlights (certainly installed for safety, which is great) feels a little like disturbing the owners of the house after a late dinner.

Overall, we really enjoyed the accommodations. The owners of the house are great, and asked us if there was anything we needed, which is always nice. Oh - and coffee was provided. A nice touch, too!

We would definitely recommend this place for a couple or two friends who want to be close to everything!
