Austin Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

At the end of a quiet cul-de-sac lies this practically brand new modern guest house that is 196 sq ft of efficient modern living. Resting behind a 1960's ranch house it features a built-in queen-size bed with plenty of storage underneath for carry-ons or clothes, a kitchenette with cooktop burner, toaster oven, Keurig coffee maker, microwave, 3/4 size refrigerator, a bistro table and 2 chairs for dining in, a 3/4 bathroom with awesome shower (rain showerhead) and plenty of hot water, cable TV with DVD player, A/C and heater, an outdoor eating area for 4 in the breezeway, a 17'x35' pool for cooling off, and driveway parking with private entrance.

Very cozy and ready to be visited! See photos for more details.

Why Lori Goodpasture chose Austin

These houses were originally built for my husband's sick mother and special-needs sister to move from Maryland to be with us. Circumstances have changed on their end so alas, we have this guest area and no one to live in it. What else does that leave for us to do, but share them with someone who wants a unique Austin experience.

What makes this bungalow unique

We have lived in Austin for 21 years now. We love this city!! We would love to share our knowledge of Austin with you. We welcome all questions and will help you with anything we can while you are enjoying your stay here.

Beautiful location, warm and accommodating hosts, great place to stay in Austin!

  • 5 of 5
My coach and I were in town for Ironman Austin 70.3 Lori and Bill (and Buster) were so welcoming and accommodating - they even moved things around in the pool storage closet so that we could store (and lock up) our bikes. The location was great for getting to the race venue, as well as getting to any place else in Austin. The location was nice and quiet, definitely a neighborhood removed from the downtown area. The bungalow was super fun and cute, very clean and full of amenities for such a cozy space. Perfect for a single traveler or couple. It was maybe a little tight with all of our various triathlon equipment, but definitely not bad and we made it work! I'd definitely stay here again, no question!!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying here and it was just as wonderful as the first! It was the perfect place to launch our Austin adventures from: it was super clean, easy to access, had GREAT pool, the breezeway was a perfect place to eat meals and it was private. The owners are great and attentive, and Buster (the dog) was friendly as promised. The space is perfectly sized for a couple or a single person.

just as the pictures show. quite and relaxing...and that's what we were looking for. enjoyed the pool several times. Buster the dog came out to hang with us for awhile too. kinda got lost trying to find the home, tucked into a maze of a neighborhood. shopping, highway and downtown all very close and easy to access.
