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 space, close to lots of restaurants on Barton Creek Rd., and Peter Pan Mini Golf. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay, would definitely rent this place again, and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Great place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us came into Austin for the first time on a golf trip. None of us were familiar with the area but we knew we wanted to be close to the city. After staying here I know we made the right choice. The location was perfect, just across the water from downtown about a 2 minute cab ride away. Even though you're not right in downtown having the view from the deck made you feel like you were in the city. We also enjoyed having 2 levels. It gave nice separation when some of us wanted to relax and catch up on sleep while the others could watch TV upstairs and sit out on the deck. The place was nicely furnished and had nice upgrades on the interior. Next time we come back to Austin we will stay here again for sure. One thing to note Austin banned Uber within the city limits so make sure you're ready to cab it everywhere.

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for our son's graduation a year in advance, based on great reviews. It did not disappoint! Very clean, decorated nicely, and had all the comforts of home. The location is awesome. We walked everywhere - dinner at the many restaurants nearby on Barton Springs, shopping and lunch on Congress Avenue, and taking walks on the paths along the water in the nearby Zilker Park. The upstairs balcony has the best view, and we enjoyed our relaxing nights out there!

Great location, a real gem

  • 5 of 5

The casita was clean, comfortable (including and especially the king size bed!) and very conveniently located to everthing we wanted to do, especially Zilker Park. We even had our own carport! We also enjoyed the million dollar view of the Austin sky line from the balcony. A five minute car ride got us to the heart of Austin to explore the bistros and bars. Five minutes the other direction got us to South Congress. We did not need to bother the owner Susana about anything, but if we did, she was on location. We did have the opportunity to meet and chat with this very lovely woman! Would definitely recommend this place and would also stay here again.

We rented bikes and did the river bike trail. Wanted to swim Barton Springs but closed onThursdays for cleaning. Also $8 entrance fee unless you get there before or after hours, then swim for free. Favorite eating places close by are Shady Grove and Uncle Billys. Guero's on South Congress was lots of fun, they have live music radio broadcast in the Oak Garden on Wednesdays. All the cowboy boots you could want at Allen's and neat gift shops also on SoCo. Favorite Mexican food at Polvos on 1st Street. Across the river, loved J Blacks food, Whole Foods Market a must, and found an awesome little bar/cafe called Mean Eyed Cat- a tribute to Johnny cash, full of memorabilia, good drinks and food.

Great guest house in cute neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the casita - it's beautifully decorated and super comfy. We loved sitting on the sun deck and looking out over downtown.

Really easy to get everywhere in Austin from here.

Susana was so responsive and accommodating.

Highly recommend!!

Jog or bike on Lady Bird Lake trails or rent a canoe. Nearby restaurants include Shady Grove (family friendly local place which often has live music), Austin Java, Uncle Billy's BBQ and microbrewery, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Baby A's Tex-Mex (home of the purple margarita), Daily Juice and Flipnotics Coffee.

Head east a few blocks to shop in the nearby South Congress (SoCo) district. Find thrift stores, vintage shops, a costume store, candy store, antique and clothing stores, etc. Grab a pizza at Homeslice, relax at Sunday brunch at South Congress Cafe or the Woodland, enjoy Italian at the delicious Vespaio Restaruant, see a local band at the Continental Club, play a round of mini-golf at Peter Pan Golf (walking distance), or check out a play at Zach Scott Theater (walking distance). Don't forget to stop on the S. Congress bridge and check out the bats!

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.
