BACKYARD POOLSIDE OASIS GETAWAY

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.

SORRY - WE DON'T RENT OUT OUR POOL/LOCATION FOR POOL/BIRTHDAY PARTIES.

Note:

We have a golden retriever who is very inquisitive. If you mind dogs, this may not be the place for you; however, we will do our very best to keep him out of your business.

  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

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.

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.

We had a great time staying at this pool house. The back yard is large and secluded, and relaxing and quiet. Our hosts, Lori and Bill, were very nice and helpful. Buster lived up to his previous reviews, friendly and sweet.

The pool house had everything we needed. It's very cute and comfortable. The Keurig machine was a nice touch, and plenty of kitchen stuff and towels. It only took us about 15 minutes to get to Downtown and was an easy drive. In addition, nearby is a nice walking/running trail.

Great little place on the NE side of town. Lori and Bill are sweet as can be and their dog is super friendly. We live in town but needed a place to stay on our wedding night. Hotels are boring, overpriced and lack the care and uniqueness you get from a vacation rental. Wife and I will recommend this place to all of our out of town guests.

Small but PERFECT!

My husband and I arrived late, and at first we were worried but Lori and Bill accommodated us and made our arrival seamless and easy. The next morning we were greeted by Buster, who was a sweet and energetic Golden Retriever. The kitchenette was PERFECT for making breakfast (complete with bacon and eggs) and we loved being able to eat outside on the breezeway. Note, there is not a full kitchen and there is no oven so large meals are not going to happen. This was not a surprise, it was part of the listing, and honestly with all of the delicious food in Austin it was not an issue.
The decor of the bungalow was adorable and very homey. The mattress was very comfortable, but the pillows are firm. The shower with the rain head was lovely after a hot day or a dip in the pool.
The pool was the perfect retreat from the heat, and even had seats that were perfectly situated in the shade during the afternoon. The location of the property was perfect for getting to all locations North of the river. It was SO quiet and felt tranquil and private.
