It is a lil climb to the front door, but worth the hike.

This sweet lil casita is next to the Hope Gallery with the best view of Austin. It is easily walkable to 6th St, UT, the capitol & is just a 30 min walk to Zilker & Barton Springs. Watch the sun rise over the capitol from the front porch.

De ruimte

This is a "lived in" home, so it won't be pristine or empty. There is not closet or drawer space for clothing. It is an older house with quite a climb up rickety stairs, so not for the faint of heart. The likes of Jimmy Hendrix and Janis Joplin used to party in this very house, however, so there is history. It is very "Austin" and indeed embodies the living like a local feeling. A block from Wink, Austin Java, the Tavern, and a few more to Shoal Creek Saloon, Waterloo Records and Amy's Ice Cream.

Toegang voor gasten

The whole house and yard is yours, however please do not open drawers or closets except in kitchen and hallway.

Interactie met gasten

I often travel when I have guests, but will be available if you need me. There will always be someone available to help you with anything that arises.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten

Must be able to climb the stairs. This is not ideal for the too uptight as it is quite an old house and is lived in and loved. The benefits are there are spices and all the amenities of a home.

This place can easily fit 6 people and is in walking distance of most things that you need. The house and the neighborhood provide for a very weird Austin experience, in the best way. Emily is also great host.

We came to Austin for a bro weekend and we bro-tentially had a bro-blem. Where were we going to sleep 4 bros? We needed a house that was big enough for all of us. As if by magic, Castle Hill Bungalow showed up in our AirBNB search and was the perfect solution. What did we love about this place? Everything. The location was fantastic, walking distance from 6th Street and downtown enticements. A half block over is a massive concrete foundation of an unbuilt condo complex that is now covered in spraypaint and, far from sketchy, has clearly become something of a local attraction. The view of the city from the top was majestic, and it was fun to chill with all people spraypainting and dancing all around us. The house itself is super airy and roomy. While a bit on the ramshackle side, it did not detract from its charm or its usefulness. You feel like you're house-sitting for your hip, funky Austin aunt while she's away for the weekend. It's all very inviting. My friend ended up sleeping in the children's bunkbed together with another friend who are both over 6'2" feet tall (somehow at 5'10" I wound up with the queen in the master bedroom! the advantages of being the one to book the place). His feet hung over the back of the bed but he said it was definitely comfortable. My friend spent a lot of time in that bed since he was a little worse for the wear after a few late nights in Austin and needed a full morning and afternoon to recover. It gave him a chance to take in all the interesting decor details in the room, like the Japanese umbrella hung upside down underneath the ceiling fan. That was a neat artistic touch. The fridge kept our Lone Star nicely chilled, and the internet was adequately fast for Spotify. There is a delightful hammock out back. The landlady, whom I did not meet, was very friendly and communicative and did us an immense favor by letting us have a late checkout so we could shower and nap after our early morning race on Sunday (we ran the Capitol 10k). Will we miss Austin? Yes. Would I recommend Castle Hill Bungalow? Absolutely. Rumor is Jimi Hendrix once stayed here, and you'll be glad you did, too.

The place was basically as described and the location was just about as good as it gets in Austin. It was a short walk to downtown, castle hill, zilker park, UT campus, the capitol, etc. As for the house, there was a master bedroom, a second bedroom with bunk beds, and a couple couches in the living room that could pass as beds if need be. The kitchen was full-sized and well-equipped.

I stayed here for the USGP and the location was brilliant, very handy to the loveliness that is Austin. The Bungalow, was exactly as described.

The location was perfect since we were going to a festival in Zilker Park and it was walking distance. The house has enough beds to sleep 6 people comfortably and the host gave us a warm welcome and even offered us beer and her food. She told us she would stay close and she would be available for anything we needed. It has a beautiful view of the capitol too :) The only thing is that there is no storage space for clothes or additional food
