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 2-story 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 2014
Why Lyon Gegenheimer chose East Cesar Chavez
The neighborhood has so much to offer, and I really recommend that my guests enjoy it on foot or by renting a bicycle. We are steps away from the art galleries and cool spots on East Cesar Chavez, including Cenote Coffee Shop, Eastside Tavern, Bufalina Pizza, Veracruz All-Natural & the Weatherup Cocktail Lounge. Additionally, the property is walking distance to the Rainey Street Entertainment District & E. 6th Street Entertainment District & E. Cesar Chavez Bar District. We are 4 blocks from the shores of Lady Bird Lake & the hike and bike trail that cuts through downtown, and will take you to Butler Park, Zilker Park, Barton Springs & to see the famous bats fly out at dusk from the Congress Street bridge. You can rent a canoe or paddle board along the shoreline, or a party boat for the most amazing night time views of downtown from Lady Bird Lake. The Austin Rowing Club boathouse is a favorite spot of mine at the foot of the Four Season's Hotel's 'Great Lawn'. The boathouse is also home to Alta Cafe, which features an upper level wrap around deck with breathtaking views of the lake. It is the perfect place for a coffee early in the morning or to grab a glass of wine and watch the sunset.
What makes this House unique
I personally check-in guests, and give a brief overview of the amenities in the house, plus close by spots for coffee, groceries, dining and entertainment. I enjoy giving my guests an insider view on the neighborhood hot spots, convenient trailer eateries, and the best bars restaurants and bars nearby. Just knowing who has the best happy hour, or where to rent a bike and/or paddle board can enhance my guests overall experience. My favorite special treat is hiring a pedi-cab downtown to bike me home open air. It can be the perfect end to an evening out, plus we are one of the only residential neighborhoods where the pedi-cabs will take you right to your doorstep.

Was a great location.
It was a very comfortable property.
Perfect location and comforts!!!
This was the perfect place to stay! Beds were so comfortable, tons of extra toiletries if needed, so much space to relax. And, most importantly, an awesome location. We walked everywhere. Thanks Lyon!
excellent location and house was extremely nice
Property owner was very helpful and quite accommodating. House is close to everything and in great condition. We have gone to different places for a family reunion for quite a few years now and this property was one of the best. If you are traveling to Austin, highly recommend this property.
We love the interior of this house
We came to Austin this past weekend and 6 of us spent 3 nights at this property. The location is convenient to walking to downtown Austin. The inside of the house has been fully and beautifully renovated and nicely decorated. The bathrooms are modern, updated and very clean. The beds were very comfortable and the linens and pillows were wonderful. The kitchen is well equipped with a gas stove and good appliances and ample amounts of dishes and glassware. Overall, the inside is very clean and appealing. The reason for the 4 star rating is the appearance of the outside of the house and yard. We were all taken aback when we pulled up to the property to check in. The neighborhood seems to be one that is in the process of being renovated and overhauled. Lots of houses look like they have been renovated. Lots of houses do not including this house. The outside is in need of attention. The yard is overgrown and messy. The backyard has a shabby looking building as part of it. I guess my point is that if I had seen pictures of the exterior I would not have booked it even though the interior is really quite nice. So it is smart of the owner not to include external pictures. I hope that exterior renovations are next up for this property because it would be truly great with some attention to the outside.
Comfort And Location
We enjoyed a family Thanksgiving vacation in this lovely home. Lyon was a great host and the house was well stocked with supplies. Beds were comfortable and the spacious living room a plus. We ordered Thanksgiving dinner from Whole Foods and ate in the open dining room. The home's East Austin neighborhood has several great restaurants and you can also walk to Rainey Street, Downtown Austin, and the Hike and Bike Trail. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Great home base. Easy drive or walk to everything Austin has to offer. House was perfect. Lyon was a great host.
You probably heard Austin is the 'live music capitol of the world', and there is a good reason for that. Find music listings and venue schedules in Austin's weekly arts and entertainment rag, The Austin Chronicle. http://www.austinchronicle.com/ There is music all over the city. I mean everywhere. More than any other type, we are the home of Blues Rock. However, you will find, Rock n’ Roll, Rockabilly, Jazz, World, Folk, Country, Reggae, Indie Pop, Latin, and everything in between. Within walking distance of the property you can get to The White Horse, Scoot-Inn, Wunderland, Sputnik, Hotel Vegas & Volsted. In SoCo is the famous Continental Club & Ego’s Lounge. Downtown on 6th Street is where most of the music is located like Bourbon Street in New Orleans, but bigger. Riverside Drive is home to famous Antone’s & the Beauty Ballroom, both a very short cab ride. Two standout venues off S. Lamar are the Saxon Pub & the Broken Spoke. The Red River district that intersects with 6th Street has great acts at The Mohawk, Red Eyed Fly, Holy Mountain & Stubb’s BBQ (but don’t eat the food it’s awful).
