Hi there, I'm Ryan Rinaldi, your host here at  Austin's Eastside Flats & Jen's Place Asheville.
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 sons 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.

Stop looking at other places in Austin and stay here! I stayed at Ryan's place with my partner for 7 nights during my week off from a stressful job and it was perfect in every way. From the start, Ryan was an exceptional communicator and I immediately felt not only confident he would be a great host, but that he really took pride in his space. Complete with (some) handcrafted high-end architectural details: wooden fixtures in the kitchen, a serene outdoor porch overlooking trees, a craftsman sink in a modern bathroom, a super comfy bed- this place is heavenly. My partner had to work, and Ryan has a wonderful 'office space' tucked away and an extension to the bedroom, where my partner worked quietly all day. It has a desk and Ryan provided a comfy office chair to us upon request. It couldn't have been more perfect as I read and relaxed on the porch and in the living room, cooked great meals in his fully functional and beautiful kitchen, and my partner was able to come in and out of the workspace- just like at home!

Don't blink or you'll miss it...

In 2017 our Upper Flat's main bathroom was used to showcase the application of a new product.  It may only be 3 seconds of screen time but we are honored the producer chose our guesthouse to film. The director and director of photography stayed in our Upper Flat while filming in Austin. 

Unfortunately, this product never made it to market and the ad campaign never launched.
