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 bungalow was a dream come true. The remodel was to the highest possible standard, and completed with the thought, 'where would I want to stay?' I sometimes call it 'the honeymoon suite' because I think it is intimate, private and fun. The perfect spot for a romantic get-away.

Lyon Gegenheimer purchased this bungalow in 2007

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.

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.

A wonderful place to stay in Austin.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great experience at the Bungalow. The place was nice (and tidy), the location was great, Lyon was extremely accommodating (even sharing some local beers with us). I would absolutely recommend staying here while in Austin.

Great Bungalow and location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for the Formula 1 weekend and really enjoyed it. Lyon is a great host, friendly and accommodating. The Bungalow is really pretty, comfortable, with very nice amenities. The Krueger coffee maker, spa bath (steam shower is awesome), and frig stocked with some nice beers and snacks were all great touches. There are a number of restaurants, coffee shops in the area. We did a ton of walking to and from downtown, rainey street, and running on lady bird trail. The neighborhood feels pretty safe and is mixed amongst older and new (renovated) homes. Super close to the airport as well if you have an early flight out. I would definitely recommend this spot to others coming to Austin.

Perfect mini vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I booked this house just 2 days before arriving. We'd originally planned to stay at the Hilton and changed our minds at the last minute - and boy am I glad we did! A hotel concierge has NOTHING on Lyon. He was incredibly responsive during the booking process (which was great because it was so last minute). And that was just the beginning. He provided us with some great local insight and gave us a great list of hotspots to hit. The house was better than any hotel we could have booked. It was cute and clean - just like the photos. And, like other reviewers have mentioned, stocked with snacks, drinks, coffee and toiletries. Lovely.

Lyon welcomed us at the house when we arrived from the airport and gave us a thorough overview of all of the house details – as well as the rest of Austin! We had lots of questions and he was great about sending us to some wonderful places - even going so far as to give us his cell number to call/text if we needed any recommendations during our stay.

The location is perfect. We walked everywhere and took a quick cab home a couple of nights when we were tired.

Speaking of tired - that steam shower is life changing. It wasn't something that had initially piqued my interest but Lyon suggested it was a hangover killer and, well, it got some use. (He was right, by the way!)

I can't recommend this house – or Lyon – highly enough. We will absolutely tell any friend traveling to Austin to skip the Hilton and book a room at Hotel Lyon!

Fabulous weekend

  • 5 of 5
This was a lovely, private bungalow that was perfect for our weekend getaway. LOVED that steam shower!!!! The accomodations were perfect with the refrigerator, coffee maker, and toaster. Close to everything downtown, but no noise from traffic or people. The owner was close by and available, but we didn't see him the whole time: he was friendly and helpful and we hope to rent from him again in the futute.

Felt like home away from home (and more!)

  • 5 of 5
What a perfectly cozy, charming and extremely comfortable place to relax and refresh during my stay in Austin! Starting with 2 of my favorite things about my own home. A Tempurpedic type queen size bed and a Keurig coffee maker! (stocked with a variety of coffees I might add) Microwave, full size refrigerator and dishwasher....All the comforts of home. Also, a nice flat screen television with full cable and even a blue ray player with a variety of movies supplied. Sodas and snacks were also provided. Certainly a lifesaver when I was on the run on a couple of occasions! What a special touch that was not at all expected. But the crowning jewel in my opinion was the spacious roomy STEAM shower with built in benches! What a great way to relax and unwind from a busy day. I truly felt like I received the spa treatment! Kudos. This property owner definitely cares about his guests comfort and well being. Thank you for a wonderful visit!

Charming Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for a weekend getaway and this property fit the bill perfectly. Lyon, the owner, has described his place perfectly and if anything, the pictures don't do it justice. He's done a great job modeling this bungalow with modern amenities. The spa shower is fantastic and is a perfect way to relax at the end of the day. He also generously provides snacks and non-alcoholic drinks (including Coke Zero -- score!) as part of the rental price. He also is a great host and full of wonderful recommendations of nearby restaurants and nightlife. Speaking of which, the property is close enough to walk to East 6th, West 6th and Rainey Street, and is a short <$10 cab ride back if you stay out late. We look forward to staying again on our next visit!
