About the owner...

I'm very passionate about entertaining friends and family and hosting guests. My degree is in Architecture, however, I don't get to use it in my professional life. Revisioning this turn-of-the-century home was a dream come true. The remodel was to the highest possible standard, and completed with the thought, 'where would I want to stay?'

About Lyon Gegenheimer

I'm very passionate about entertaining friends and family and hosting guests. My degree is in Architecture, however, I don't get to use it in my professional life. Revisioning this turn-of-the-century home was a dream come true. The remodel was to the highest possible standard, and completed with the thought, 'where would I want to stay?'

Lyon Gegenheimer purchased this house in 2007

Why Lyon Gegenheimer chose Austin

I live on the block and am always nearby should you ever need anything during your stay. The location is amazing one block from the Historic Willow-Spence Nationally Registered Neighborhood. It is walking distance to Downtown Austin, the Convention Center, Lady Bird Lake, the Rainey Street District and East 6th Street Entertainment District.

What makes this house unique

I love walking to Lady Bird Lake and renting a paddleboard, kayak or canoe only a few blocks from the house at The Expedition School. Half a block from the house are fantastic art galleries on Cesar Chavez and Cafes and Coffee shops nearby at the Rainey Street District & the East 6th Street Entertainment District. I often walk downtown to listen to music, eat & drink. Or more often take a $5 cab ride (save my feet) and then bar hop throughout downtown and walk back home at the end of my night.

The is a great home for a weekend away ! We had our sibling 2013 weekend in Austin and this is the Perfect place. We were just a few blocks away from all the " fun" you would want to experience and this owner took the extra steps to make you feel at home. Great to deal with and when we plan our next trip to Austin we will be staying here. Well worth the cost - lots of extras !! PS the beds and towels were extra special !!

Recently stayed here on a girls bachelorette weekend and really can't say a bad thing about this place. The owner is a dream to work with. He will walk you through each step of the rental process and also is always willing to help, whether that be for suggestions on places to eat or just flexibility with requests you would like at the house. You can truly feel his passion for the house and for Austin in each email.

The house... oh the house! From the minute we walked in we couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was. And every last detail was thought of. The pictures DO NOT do this place justice. There is no detail that is forgotten that you would want for a comfortable stay. It makes you feel like you are right at home! And did I say how gorgeous it was?! Extremely clean, comfortable beds, amazing showers and perfect communal spaces so that everyone was comfortable. We had 8 girls staying and it turned out perfectly.

Coming from a large city and having all amenities right outside my door, I'd have to say the only downside for me would be that the location is a little off the beaten path. However, we walked downtown several times and called a taxis since we didn't rent a car. My only advice is to call the taxi's 30 - 40 minutes before you want to leave because it likely will take that long.

I could keep going on and on about this house and only wish I could buy it for myself. It's simply perfect. Would love to stay here again if a trip to Austin should be in the cards.

Thanks Lyon for your hospitality!!

We can't say enough good things about this rental. We rented it for a long weekend and throughly enjoyed it. It is decorated so cute and has everything you could possibly need. Nice and close to downtown and a very quiet neighborhood. The owner was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

Awesome Time!!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house for a group of friends coming in from all over the country. We had a great time and were happy with the house with no exceptions. There's several things about this place that stand out.

First, the location can't be beat. I have lived in Austin for 12 years so I know the good spots. This house is in a very true-Austin style neighborhood, and is within walking distance to two fantastic mini bar and shopping districts (east 6th and Rainey st), as well as the old 6th street bar district, so if you're wanting to go out you can safely walk or take a very cheap cab or pedi-cab ride, but it's far enough off the beaten path that it is quiet. There are also very good restaurants within a few blocks you can walk to.

Second, the pictures don't do the interior of the place justice. It is absolutely beautiful. The owner did a great job designing and decorating the house interior when he redid it. One of my friends is demanding to know what kind of bed hers was because she wants to go buy it. One of the bathrooms has a tub with jets and the other has a sauna in it, which the ladies loved. The whole place just makes you feel good being there. There were also three different outdoor porches to relax in, one of them screened in.

All in all, we would definitely try to rent this again anytime the opportunity arises.
