About Daniel Otto

Dan and Heidi moved to Austin in the early 90's right after college, both love the unique benefits and eclectic mix of people in Austin and wouldn't want to live anywhere else in Texas. Dan works as a financial analyst for the State of Texas and Heidi is a teacher at the Texas School for the Blind.

Daniel Otto purchased this bungalow in 1996

Why Daniel Otto chose Austin

In my humble opinion this is the best neighborhood in Central Austin with everything needed within walking distance. I lived without a car here for a 4 year stretch and never felt stranded from anything I needed. The ability to get anywhere in central city by foot, bike or bus is definitely my favorite benefit of the location. There is also the plus of being in quiet family oriented neighborhood far enough north of the kids in west campus but only 1 block from the busy Guadalupe drag with its interesting mix of shops and people.

What makes this bungalow unique

The house was my primary residence from 1996 until 2010 when I moved in with Heidi. Heidi and I have had some fantastic travels in the last few years and we stayed in some great vacation rentals and I wanted to be able to share that same experience with others coming to visit Austin. Since making this decision we have spent 3 months renovating the property inside and out keeping in mind what was most important to us when were staying in vacation rentals. We love the cozy feel of the house and the wonderful screened in porch for chilling out! The house has been furnished with a mix of brand new and used pieces with character. The modern bedroom furnishings, new couches and entertainment center are fabulous. Hope you have a lovely stay!

Great House & Location

This was the second stay in this property. It's conveniently located two blocks off one of the major streets running through the University Neighborhood. It was exactly as advertised, had a nice flatscreen TV and Stereo, fully equipped kitchen, nice screened back porch, laundry, and comfortable beds. It's walking distance to a couple of good, well known restaurants, a 24 hour pharmacy, Co-Op grocery store, and a coffee shop/bakery. I plan to stay here again when in Austin.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
This cute little house is in an excellent location to enjoy all Austin has to offer--UT campus, downtown, wonderful restaurants and shopping to name a few. The house itself is spacious and great for entertaining. The backyard screened-in porch is an added bonus. We enjoy being able to stay here for UT football games and enjoy all the comforts of home while watching other games on the big screen TV. The added bonus of having the Longhorn Network is just icing on the cake! Dan is great to work with and available if we need anything.

Lovely, Relaxing, Just Like Home

  • 5 of 5
On a recent visit to family in Austin I was able to spend a few days in this lovely bungalow. Fantastic area of town with many "walk-able" restaurants, shops, entertainment. The home was perfect, many others commented on the screened in porch -- I too thoroughly enjoyed my early mornings and late evenings here. The owner was helpful and a great host. I look forward to a future visit.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5
This house was just as described.. It was in a perfect location. We walked to the organic grocery store. We didn't visit the Bakery, which was only a block away. Bus stops are close. Lots of food options within waling distance. The house had two comfortable queen beds. The decor is unique...but we liked it. It was a home away from home. We enjoyed the gas grill in back yard. We will be back!

Charming Contemporary Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
We are two Moms from L.A. visiting our daughters for UT's Parents Weekend. Not only was the location convenient for walking to campus, we were near the residence hall/apartment where our girls lived. The local Wheatsville grocery store was just down the street for purchasing healthy basic food for preparing meals in our retro style kitchen. The kitchen had basic utensils, pots and pans and supplies. The washer/dryer in the enclosed patio was useful for a few loads of laundry. It was amazing how clean the entire house was! The backdoor locks were a little tricky, but we felt very safe in this neighborhood. Our girls stayed with us and they enjoyed this sweet little "home away from home." Would recommend this over a hotel room for visits to UT Austin!!

Awesome in Austin!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and our two sons stayed here in the heat of August. Dan was very helpful and responsive with recommended sites and restaurants. Do not miss Barton Springs Pool! We went on a Sunday morning and it was a fantastic way to start the day!
The house was a great alternative to a hotel, especially when traveling with teenagers - space for everyone to spread out. Although it was hot outside, we enjoyed morning coffee on the screened-in porch. The electronic combination lock is GREAT if you have groups coming and going - no need to worry about keys.
Thanks for a great stay and a great introduction to Austin!
