About Susana

This is our guest house, newly constructed this year. It is in a setting where guests can enjoy privacy. The Zilker neighborhood is a very interactive place where neighbors know each other, take walks, ride bikes. We want to maintain the family oriented environment, and ask our guests to respect the neighborhood. No parties please.

Susana purchased this house in 2013

Why Susana chose Austin

We live in the heart of Austin, a vibrant city with much to offer. We are within walking distance of numerous restaurants, the hike and bike trails, Zilker Park (short walk to ACL!) and shopping. It is perfect place to stay when coming in for ACL, SXSW, Film Festival, Austin Kite Festival, UT football games, XGames. It's a walk or short taxi ride from downtown and UT.

What makes this house unique

The guest house is newly constructed. The best feature is the incredible downtown view.

Great place, amazing view

  • 5 of 5

I was in town for a weekend visiting family. I stayed at this place for the proximity to Zilker, Auditorium Shores and everything else downtown. Location was great and the house was kept in immaculate condition, none of that compares to the view though! Pictures do not lie, this is a great place!

Great place to stay in Austin

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay in Austin. It is near the downtown and near the Zilker Park. It is amazingly supplied with everything that you might want. Susan provides lots of little details that make the place so appealing that it is hard to leave to go sightseeing in Austin. The view is as amazing as the comfort of the place. It will be my first choice whenever I go to Austin.

Terrific place! Clean and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The apartment is clean and spacious, with great light upstairs. The only drawback is that the apartment is near a busy road (S. Lamar). This is a minor drawback, unless you seek quiet. We didn't come to Austin for quiet. Great apartment. Great town.

Perfect location, clean, spacious, hospitable!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this property for a 'girls trip' and it was perfect! Susana even left some water and a bottle of champagne in the fridge for us. Everything was spotless when we arrived and there was more than enough space. Susana was flexible about check in and check out as we had varying flights coming in and out of Austin. The deck out back had a perfect view!

Great location, clean, bright, updated, reasonably priced for area and a wonderful hostess!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Susana's casita! It was more than enough room for the two of us and had an amazing deck with a fantastic view of the Austin skyline! It was spotlessly clean, updated with modern appliances and thoughtfully appointed with things like a hair dryer, extra pillows and blankets as well as plenty of dishes and cooking items.

We were in a car accident while visiting Austin and Susana was very generous in allowing us to stay past the check out time while we waited for the rental car. She even offered to drive us there!

If you're looking for a lovely, comfortable, clean, friendly place to call home while in Austin, and in a fantastic location, I highly recommend Susana's casita.

South 1st Street is also a few blocks from the home and is a street lined with authentic Mexican pastry shops, antique stores, record stores, boutiques and Polvo's Mexican Restaurant.

A 5 minute drive will get you to the heart of downtown where you can visit the world famous 6th Street, home of wall-to-wall bars and live music every night of the week. Visit the new 2nd Street Shopping District to catch a movie and shop local boutiques as well as high-end specialty stores. There are dozens of cafes, coffee houses, bars and restaurants to suit every taste imaginable. If you would like a tour of downtown Austin, hop aboard the Austin Duck Tour which is a boat-on-wheels! The tour guide will fill you in on Austin history while driving you around the downtown area and ultimately into the lake for a quick boat ride near Hula Hut and Mozart's Coffeehouse before returning you to your original destination.

Looking for a 24-hour eatery? Check out Magnolia Cafe or Kerby Lane Cafe.
