About Nina

Hi! I am the owner of the property, Nina Beall, and I reside in the main

house that is adjacent but completely private and separate from the Guesthouse Cabin. Please feel free to call me anytime at 512.263.0219 w/ any questions or to discuss any upgrades, "Add Ons," or Special Events!

HomeAway/VRBO has recently decided to make it impossible to exchange contact info or speak with guests prior to booking. BUT if you search Nina Beall, Artist-reach out-call to discuss potential discounts for larger groups, longer stays,Pets,etc I'm always happy to help!

I am a professional artist/painter, and 'The Studio' which is my Art Studio and gallery fills the main floor of the main house and I'll be happy to show you the studio where I create large colorful works collected by many private and museum collections around the world, upon request! For more information on my work there's a website or 2, and I'm happy to coordinate PAINTING/DRAWING Workshops for my guests with notice.

If you are interested in Art Retreat Workshops with your stay, please reserve ahead! Learn to paint or draw from a professional, NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Grant Recipient. The Studio is just a short walk over to the Main House from the Guesthouse Cabin, and The Studio is the first floor of the Main House! Please feel free to inquire. Lots of fun!

I purchased this old 'farmland' property in 1996, when I was drawn to the area and its quiet, peaceful environment, where I just knew nature would abound, flowers and landscape would blossom, and my creative energies would flow! And 'was also the builder/ co-designer of the dwellings on the property. My creative energy is recognized in its details.

I enjoy making The Guest house Cabin Retreat Special and memorable for my many and varied guests. Welcome Baskets; catering to Special Occasions; making Special picnic baskets, fridge stocking the fridge, are just a few of the ways that I enjoy making my guests feel welcome and pampered

Nina purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Nina chose Austin

This property is unique, in one of the most prestigious and upscale, yet interesting areas of the city! NOT a SUBDIVISION!~ONLY 7 MILES from Downtown Austin!~Tucked away on a private road that and with the expanse of "un lit" Emma Long City Park across the river, it makes for star gazing in clear skies!~ It was old farmland property, and sits with pride as part of an older, more peaceful way of life. It is because of this, that the Guesthouse is so special, secluded and away from the hustle bustle, yet near so many wonderful places to visit during your stay. There are many types of birds and other wildlife that frequent the property, and one has only to sit and listen to be reminded that one is truly in the country here.... But short drives to everything Austin and the Hill Country has to offer make it the "#IDEAL LOCATION!"

What makes this cabin unique

GUESTS may "CUSTOMIZE" their stays w/ multiple choices of "Add Ons" to make it EXTRA Special! Upgrades include choice/s of: Specialty Baskets for: Arrival, Breakfast, Picnics, appetizers, or Spa Packages. Lists of items and details available upon booking. Art Retreat Workshops to learn or enjoy painting and/or drawing in the studio or grounds of the property are also easy to schedule with the property owner!

As the landlord on the premises in the main house, I am almost always available to give you feedback or answer questions to make your stay more enjoyable! There is a 'Concierge Book' for more details on things to do in the Austin Area, directions, brochures, favorite restaurants, and too many to name fun things to do in Austin, nearby.

We look forward to your visit. Nina Beall, Hostess. Please feel free to call w/ any questions or special requests: 512-263-0219


Guestbook comments from the owner

When I arrived at the Guesthouse it was exactly as described.....well appointed, CLEAN, secluded, beautiful art work by the hostess and panoramic views. Nina had put together a delicious picnic basket, as requested by me. I took a nice leisure walk to the pier and relaxed with my toes dangling in the water as I enjoyed my lunch and wine! This was exactly what I needed. I would certainly recommend Nina's Guesthouse and will be looking forward to my next stay!

Clean, comfortable and private!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days here and found everything very accommodating! It was close enough to Austin but also still far enough out to escape the city sounds. We came down to visit family and enjoy the 4th on lake Austin. I will say the only thing that made us uncomfortable was having family come and go! We paid extra as not to break Nina's rules. We understood why those rules were in place (liability and previous bad apples) but it still felt as if we were on eggshells most of the time. Other than that everything else is just as described! Oh and driveway is steep and curvy so if you have a bigger vehicle be aware of this. We drive a long bed dually truck and were able to navigate but it was still tight! Thanks again, Nina! You have a very beautiful serene place!

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your stay! It appears there was a misunderstanding, as "additional persons' fees paid" (discounted for your group to be more than 50% off), were for ease of coming and going as they pleased, as many times/days/nights as you/they wanted, and completely w/o rules (as stated w/ invoice)! So sorry you didn't understand that! TOTALLY OPEN ENDED!~ Perhaps house sitter that oversaw your stay while we were out of town indicated otherwise? But it was detailed in invoice for you to reference! So "just as described" directly with your invoice! ;) But sounds like it all worked out nicely? House sitter said you were lovely guests! Thank you for the FIVE STARS, and we hope you'll visit again soon! On parking issue: Guests are responsible for disclosing if their vehicles are larger than ordinary, as there are several parking spots on the property that can accommodate much larger vehicles, even boats and trailers up to 27ft! They are not quite as close to the Cabin, but much easier to navigate. As I rarely take vacation more than twice a year, it was unfortunate that I wasn't there to answer to these issues, but always easy to reach by text when away! I'm so glad that you found the property beautiful and serene!

Peaceful and Relaxing!~Close to Everything!~GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

This property is so relaxing and peaceful! CLEAN, ORDERLY, UPSCALE, BEAUTIFUL, COMFY BED, and WONDERFUL HOSTESS! You truly are "surrounded by nature" and we loved the "treetop" views that overlook the canyons of the river. You can see for MILES! The large private deck is onto the woods so you feel comfy sitting out in PJs for coffee, wine, or meals, and the pool is just a short walk around the Main house porches where Nina invites you to sit and enjoy the porch swings, which WE DID! We even took our picnic lunch down and enjoyed sitting on the Long Porch at the cute table and chairs where you have remotes to turn the fans or lights on at your whim! Pool was perfect temp-heated to suit! And so lovely out under the stars at night. A plethora of groceries and excellent restaurants (lots of variety for gourmet eats from $-$$$), and One World Theatre for hearing accomplished musicians is just literally "down the road!" We enjoyed our stay and will be back!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
