About Dustin Breithaupt

I'm a school administrator who loves working with kids and teachers just about as much as I enjoy international travel!

Dustin Breithaupt purchased this house in 2007

Why Dustin Breithaupt chose Austin

I bought this property to be close to downtown while also having lots of privacy and space to relax both indoors and out. The mature trees, large lot and historic home made it irresistible!

What makes this house unique

The home has a warm character that you just don't get in modern homes or hotels. From the whirlpool bath and outdoor shower to the stereo speakers on the outdoor screened porch, there are lots of little touches that just make you feel right at home.

Great place, recommended!

  • 5 of 5
We came to Austin for Formula 1 weekend and enjoyed our stay. Beautiful old home with lots of cool touches. Comfortable beds, good water pressure, all the kitchen stuff we needed to cool meals and a great outdoor living area. Hope to stay here again next time we are in town.

Cute yellow house in East Austin

  • 5 of 5
I had a great stay at this cute, artsy home in East Austin. This is the perfect place for a relaxing weekend get-away or "home base" for those who love to get out and about in the capital city. The up-and-coming arts-oriented East Austin neighborhood is a gem! There are great bars and restaurants only a stone's throw from this property...not to forget that downtown and the Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trail are only minutes away. The home was fully equipped with everything and more...in particular, I loved the beautiful kitchen and the outdoor shower. The owner was very helpful and even left a cool guide to the area. I will be back in the future and would highly recommend a stay at this property. Five stars and two thumbs up!!

Cute yellow house in East Austin

  • 5 of 5
I had a fabulous stay in this cute house while in Austin. This artsy little house is adorable inside and out. I stayed in the city with the purpose of enjoying a relaxing weekend, and that is exactly what this space provided. I particularly enjoyed having access to a nice kitchen space and spacious backyard porch area for socializing...not to forget the lovely outdoor shower. The location of the property could not be better. The up-and-coming interesting and arts-oriented east Austin neighborhood provided cool art galleries and a fun bar and restaurant scene. This house is minutes from the airport, minutes from downtown, and minutes from the extensive and lively walking/running/biking trail along Ladybird Lake. Whether you are seeking a relaxing get-away or a "home base" with the mission of being out and about in the Texas capital city, I would highly recommend this property!
