Overview

About the property

Bedroom, Kitchen, Bathroom & Patio; Private Access & Parking

Eleven Oaks Suite is located in a downtown Austin home that has both city and state historical designation. Your hosts, who live on the premises, are homeowners Ted Siff and Janelle Buchanan and their two daughters. The original part of the house was built in 1858 by Edward Clark, who was Texas’ lieutenant governor under Sam Houston and, briefly, governor.

Your suite has a private entrance and a designated parking space in the rear of the property. Entrance is through a locked gate into the back yard. Your suite is comprised of a bedroom with a double bed, television, writing desk, closet with plenty of hanging space, full-length mirror and small chest of drawers; a bathroom with shower; and a kitchen with a table and two chairs, dishes, glasses and utensils, a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster and Keurig single-serve coffee maker. A small patio is outside your kitchen door, with a table and chairs. Clothing hangers, a hair dryer, coffee, tea and a variety of sweeteners are provided. Before your arrival we will stock the refrigerator with cream, butter, cream cheese and bottled water to supplement whatever food you choose to bring or purchase for your stay.

When we confirm your reservation, please let us know approximately what time to expect you. You will come to the front door of our house, where we will meet you with your keys and directions to parking and entrance to your suite. We will also give you the WiFi password at that time.

About Ted Siff & Janelle Buchanan

We’re Ted, a publisher and parks advocate, and Janelle, a homemaker and actress, and we’ve each called Austin home for over 40 years. We know the neighborhoods, fun spots and beautiful places that make Austin so special, and can answer all your questions about where to find the best margarita, bat viewing, natural swimming hole, barbecue and special night out dining. Interested in music, dance, theatre, or museums? We can guide you to those venues as well.

Ted Siff & Janelle Buchanan purchased this house in 1978

Why Ted Siff & Janelle Buchanan chose Austin

We both chose Austin to go to U.T. But we each chose Austin again to live, work and raise our family. We have grown up as Austin has. Austin is sophisticated but never snooty. You can find world class restaurants and bars, and you can wear your jeans and boots to visit them if you like. Just about any cuisine you prefer is available somewhere in the city, from Tex-Mex to Ethiopian. You can enjoy popular music at the hundreds of clubs around Austin as well as at the top-of-the-line Austin City Limits studio, not to mention the Austin Symphony and Austin Lyric Opera. Oh, and all those festivals: ACL, SXSW, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Moontower Comedy Festival, F-1 racing, and more. If you’re up for a drive, you’re just over an hour away from the Texas Hill Country, with its wineries, beautiful scenery, and German heritage. (Or go an hour east and check out central Texas’ old Czech communities. Have a kolache! Visit the Spoetzel Brewery in Shiner which, during Prohibition, stayed in business by producing near beer plus just a little of the regular kind for “medicinal purposes.”) Diverse? You bet. Friendly? Very.

What makes this house unique

Eleven Oaks Suite is in just about the perfect location – downtown, blocks from some of Austin’s best restaurants and clubs, and walking distance to UT and the Darrel Royal Memorial Stadium, gorgeous hike and bike trails, and great shopping. Because of its proximity to all this plus the Capitol, the Austin Convention Center and the Rio Grande campus of Austin Community College, the neighborhood is bustling during the day but quiet at night. Your suite is comfortable, warm and welcoming. Cold Shiner beer will be waiting for you!

Charming, comfy, clean adorable suite

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the suite! We were so close to a lot of the attractions we came to Austin to see. The place was charming and clean with a beautiful outdoor space. There were water bottles, coffee and kitchen essentials for us to use. It was a great stay and the cherry on top of our Austin trip!

Great Deal for Location

  • 4 of 5

A very cozy room with kind owners and probably the best price you're going to find for something within walking distance to downtown. A very solid choice.

Charming One Night Stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed her just for the night and found the property to be clean and as shown in pictures. The guest house is very old and has a story to tell - it's part of it's charm. The bathroom is renovated and the space overall is kept clean. The bed is comfortable enough, it's a firm bed with plenty of pillows and a coverlet.

This house is connected to the main house. There are two doors that are kept locked and behind curtains, but they do share that wall with the main house kitchen & living room. I only note this because we didn't realize, we thought the space was detached. At times, you may hear the main house subtly and vice versa.

Overall, great experience. There was a tiny Keurig with coffee pods and a few beers left in the fridge, which was a nice touch. We'd stay here again if needed for an Austin night or weekend. Very conveniently located to plenty of action accessible by Uber.

We enjoyed staying at your property!

  • 5 of 5

Your property was nice, clean and accommodating. We were disappointed with Austin. Just another big city. Driving out to Fredericksburg was refreshing and relaxing!
