Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

Bedroom, Kitchen, Bathroom & Patio; Private Access & Parking

Eleven Oaks Suite is located in a downtown Austin home that has both city and state historical designation. Your hosts, who live on the premises, are homeowners Ted Siff and Janelle Buchanan and their two daughters. The original part of the house was built in 1858 by Edward Clark, who was Texas’ lieutenant governor under Sam Houston and, briefly, governor.

Your suite has a private entrance and a designated parking space in the rear of the property. Entrance is through a locked gate into the back yard. Your suite is comprised of a bedroom with a double bed, television, writing desk, closet with plenty of hanging space, full-length mirror and small chest of drawers; a bathroom with shower; and a kitchen with a table and two chairs, dishes, glasses and utensils, a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster and Keurig single-serve coffee maker. A small patio is outside your kitchen door, with a table and chairs. Clothing hangers, a hair dryer, coffee, tea and a variety of sweeteners are provided. Before your arrival we will stock the refrigerator with cream, butter, cream cheese and bottled water to supplement whatever food you choose to bring or purchase for your stay.

When we confirm your reservation, please let us know approximately what time to expect you. You will come to the front door of our house, where we will meet you with your keys and directions to parking and entrance to your suite. We will also give you the WiFi password at that time.

About Ted Siff & Janelle Buchanan

We’re Ted, a publisher and parks advocate, and Janelle, a homemaker and actress, and we’ve each called Austin home for over 40 years. We know the neighborhoods, fun spots and beautiful places that make Austin so special, and can answer all your questions about where to find the best margarita, bat viewing, natural swimming hole, barbecue and special night out dining. Interested in music, dance, theatre, or museums? We can guide you to those venues as well.

Ted Siff & Janelle Buchanan purchased this house in 1978

Why Ted Siff & Janelle Buchanan chose Austin

We both chose Austin to go to U.T. But we each chose Austin again to live, work and raise our family. We have grown up as Austin has. Austin is sophisticated but never snooty. You can find world class restaurants and bars, and you can wear your jeans and boots to visit them if you like. Just about any cuisine you prefer is available somewhere in the city, from Tex-Mex to Ethiopian. You can enjoy popular music at the hundreds of clubs around Austin as well as at the top-of-the-line Austin City Limits studio, not to mention the Austin Symphony and Austin Lyric Opera. Oh, and all those festivals: ACL, SXSW, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Moontower Comedy Festival, F-1 racing, and more. If you’re up for a drive, you’re just over an hour away from the Texas Hill Country, with its wineries, beautiful scenery, and German heritage. (Or go an hour east and check out central Texas’ old Czech communities. Have a kolache! Visit the Spoetzel Brewery in Shiner which, during Prohibition, stayed in business by producing near beer plus just a little of the regular kind for “medicinal purposes.”) Diverse? You bet. Friendly? Very.

What makes this house unique

Eleven Oaks Suite is in just about the perfect location – downtown, blocks from some of Austin’s best restaurants and clubs, and walking distance to UT and the Darrel Royal Memorial Stadium, gorgeous hike and bike trails, and great shopping. Because of its proximity to all this plus the Capitol, the Austin Convention Center and the Rio Grande campus of Austin Community College, the neighborhood is bustling during the day but quiet at night. Your suite is comfortable, warm and welcoming. Texas wine and cold Shiner Bock will be waiting for you!

Cute, Cozy, and Close to Downtown

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience using HomeAway was very enjoyable and so much more pleasant than a typical hotel stay. We wanted to stay in a nice place close to downtown for our short stay in Austin, and the suite was perfect. The thoughtful decorations and personal touches in the rooms were such a treat, as was the refrigerator stocked with Texas beer and wine. Janelle has taken great care in providing helpful information on local restaurants in the area, and Ted greeted us so kindly. We will definitely make the Eleven Oaks Suite our first choice in accommodations when we visit Austin again.

Cozy Location and Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The room was a great introduction to Austin and the Homeaway experience! We could not have asked for better hosts and accommodations.

We were greeted with a smile when we arrived and a friendly introduction to the place. The space was very well laid out and fit our needs perfectly. The bed was incredibly comfortable, to boot!

We will definitely be trying to stay here the next time our travels take us through Austin.

Walk to All the Austin Downtown Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This guest suite is well appointed with a roomy sleeping area and a separate full bath and dining/kitchenette areas. Lots of natural light and windows you can actually open if you want to turn off the AC and enjoy the early morning cooler temps. Your homeowners are super helpful yet totally respect your privacy. And it's a 5 minute walk to 6th Street and all the great restaurants, bars and live music. So you can walk home after a night on the wild side.

Cozy Suite in Downtown Austin

  • 5 of 5

The "suite" is cozy and spacious. It's centrally located to downtown Austin, which made it a breeze getting to and from SXSW events. Ted and Janelle were friendly and made me feel welcome. My only regret was that I was too busy at the festival and conference to spend more time just hanging out at the cottage.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast in Austin when we were there and part of that was because the place was beautiful, quiet, and perfect for just my husband and I.. The fact that our kitchen was stocked with plenty of beverages is always a plus.. I loved the decoration and just the suite in general.. We hope to get back to ATX as soon as possible and hope this suite will be available!

Great place in the heart of Austin!

  • 5 of 5

Ted and Janelle were extremely nice and hospitable, working with us on an early check-in time. The suite was perfect and had everything we needed, including a bottle of wine and some good old Shiner Bock in the fridge. The property itself is great and we will absolutely look to stay here again!
