SUITE IN HISTORIC DOWNTOWN HOME - 4 BLOCKS FROM CAPITOL

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.

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

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.

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!

Clean, quaint and in the heart of downtown Austin

Everything was as promised. Janelle greeted me and walked me through the accomodation. The room included a small dining area, a stocked fridge of water and beer. You truly felt you were in a home away from home.

Convenient and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5
This little apartment is a wonderful place to get in the spirit of Austin, Texas. I think it is more comfortable for one person, but the double bed is just fine for a couple. Private access and private parking right out your door, nice patio. Highly recommend this spot for your next session in Austin.

Awesome quaint rental!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Austin for a very short stay. This rental was very private and quiet. The inside was amazing and adorable. We absolutely loved it. Loved the outdoor porch too. But take some mosquito deterrent, (it is summer Texas). Only complaint was not having enough time to get to know the owners a little more. Maybe next visit. Ted and Janelle were very hospitable and immediately available for our needs. But we didn't really have any.
Absolutely loved it. Highly recommended. For adults only. No room for kids.
Thank you Ted and Janelle.

Lovely hideaway in the middle of Austin

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay in the guest cottage. Our hosts had thought of everything, from chilled wine and water in the fridge to sundries that we might have forgotten. This location is perfect for parking and walking all over town. We walked to watch the bats fly, to hang out on 6th street, to see the Capitol - to do everything. My company has an office just blocks away. If I have to come to town on business, I know I will be staying here. Thank you so much for giving us a wonderful, quiet, peaceful weekend escape!
