Tucked away behind Amy's, Austin's famous ice cream parlor, is the Kimber Modern, a four-room, one-suite bed-and-breakfast that could pass for the love child of Philippe Starck and MoMA architect Yoshio Taniguchi. Owners Kimber Cavendish and Vicki Faust have created a quiet, modernist oasis just off Austin's main drag, where a stay is as relaxing as a day at a spa. The minimalist guest rooms in white and light wood have floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto a spacious patio with brightly colored lounge chairs and hammocks made of recycled seat belts. This leafy veranda is where a lot of communing happens, including the afternoon "happy hour" (with wine and beer on offer from 3 to 8 pm). The soundproof rooms have thoughtfully selected details, like eccentric Austin guidebooks; toiletries (La Fresh Travel Wipes, Malin+Goetz bath products) that you wish you had at home; and vibrant paintings by local artists Martha Gannon and Valerie Fowler, which add a splash of color to the neutral decor. Don't miss the delicious breakfast in the Kimber Modern's common open-kitchen area, including a banana bread made from a family recipe.—Carolina Santos-Neves
