It's like a hotel room, only better. You have a comfy bed and linens, huge closet, fantastic bathroom and large shower. There is an iron, ironing board and hairdryer in the room. The wood features like the bathroom vanity, are provided by Eastside Woodshop (from a local craftsman). Concrete floors offers a cool touch in the hot summers. You have a private entrance. (We do have a full length mirror even though it is not shown in our photos)

About Ryan Rinaldi
Hi there, I'm Ryan Rinaldi, your host here at Austin's Eastside Flats. In a former life I was a teacher, coach, and sales executive. Now, I am a proud dad who has the opportunity to work from home and raise my son with my lovely lady, Jenny. Along with managing our flats I enjoy spending time with friends and family, woodworking and playing outside. You'll find my woodwork throughout the flats, for example, the bathroom vanities, window treatments, barn door, the terrace and staircase. Jenny and I love hosting guests and helping them experience our fantastic city. Let us know what we can do to make your stay wonderful.
Ryan Rinaldi purchased this Guest House in 2016
Why Ryan Rinaldi chose East Downtown
We love hosting out-of-town friends and family, however we live in a small house. So we decided to build a guest house in our backyard. When our friends and family aren't staying in our brand new guesthouse (2016) we have it available for visitors to Austin. Being close to The University of Texas, downtown Austin and all the sights makes Eastside Flats a perfect location to call home for a few days.
What makes this Guest House unique
Location, Location, Location... You are in a great eastside neighborhood close to great dining options, excellent bars and a walk, bike ride or short car ride to the University of Texas, downtown Austin, 6th St, Zilker Park, ACL Live @ the Moody Theater, Rainey St, Manor Rd, and other great Austin attractions. Our guests tell us how much they love hanging out on the Upper Flat deck, listening to music or just enjoying the view of tree tops and moontowers.

Very clean space, comfortable bed and great shower space
The location was accessible and easy to find, 10-15 minutes from everywhere we visited in Austin. Walking distance to Bennu, a 24-hour coffee shop. Friendly neighbors and easy parking.
We normally like a full kitchen, so perhaps the upstairs flat would be a better choice for a more spacious place. The walk from the front yard to the flats in back is poorly lit, and the light on the outside of the flat itself was burnt out possibly. It was pretty chilly during our November stay, so a rug to soften and warm up the hard cement floor would be a nice addition. Overall, it was an attractive space and fit most of our needs.
Charming, Convenient, Comfortable!
The owners/operators of this unit should receive a medal for creating a space that is affordable and utterly delightful at the same time. Located within easy walking distance of one of the best coffee shops we've ever been to and short drives from two of Austin's main museums as well as an Alamo Drafthouse, there's no wanting for things to do with this as your home base. The unit is incredibly comfortable and nicely appointed and easily accessible from the street (great for older folks!). The bed was a joy to sleep on and the bathroom is spacious. A definite 5-star experience!
Thank you so much for the kind review. We appreciate you two staying with us and are glad we helped to make your trip fantastic.
My friend & I were in town for ACL & we absolutely loved staying here. Ryan & Gus were an amazing welcoming committee. Ryan told us about all the great places we could walk to for food & chillin, while Gus provided an amazing head to scratch & belly to rub. The beer & snacks were a great surprise & came in handy. The room was very cozy & cute, & the shower head was tall enough for me, which I never find. 5 stars. 100/100. A+.
