About Deirdre

Deirdre Earls graduated with Cum Laude honors in Scientific Nutrition and her healthcare career spans nearly thirty years. Having used an imperfect diet instead of chemotherapy to reverse her own disease, now her objective is to use over two decades as a Registered Dietitian to bring the healing power of food to others. A featured speaker for radio and TV, medical professionals, universities and corporations, Deirdre's book sells in a dozen countries and is a best seller at Amazon. A documentary of her recovery, “The Incurables”, airs internationally on Veria TV. Her private consultations, lectures, books, menu designs and newsletter are designed to help others easily implement a sustainable healing diet anytime and anywhere on the path to remarkable results.

Deirdre purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Deirdre chose Austin

I own several 1930's cottages in central Austin. For ten years I lived in and fell in love with this cottage for many reasons. In addition to the extraordinary neighborhood, I was always grateful to enjoy so many original details of this home. Having spent more than two years in Europe, architectural integrity, urban location and uncompromised materials along with a good price became what mattered much more than square footage. Thus beautiful cottages and cozy spaces are a natural fit for me now. I hope you'll enjoy this enchanting property as much as I think you will. Thank you!

What makes this cottage unique

Preserved historical details include original tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, original sinks and cast iron tub, original glass door knobs, original kitchen cabinetry, original ironing board stored inside the kitchen wall. Stand alone cottage with covered parking and large back yard all to yourself. It's very easy to live car free in this cherished neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places. Delightful parrot colony just one block north at the University of Texas Intramural Field. Comfort is ensured with all linens made of 100% cotton.

Great stay in Austin

  • 5 of 5
This little cottage was a real find!!! Perfect location for me - within walking distance to my daughter and centrally located to everything you want to do in Austin. The house is adorable - authentic 1930's and has been kept up beautifully. Everything was so clean and comfortable. Beds/sheets were great. Wonderful deep tub/shower. Great A/C and VERY quiet neighborhood, which is important to me. Can walk to many delicious and popular Austin restaurants - Mother's Cafe, Hyde Park Bar & Grill, Quack's Bakery/Coffee shop, Dolce Vita, Antonelli's Cheese Shop, Julio's Cafe, Avenue B Grocery. Love Vino Vino on Guadalupe too. The entire experience made my time in Austin special. It was so nice not to have to fight parking, traffic etc to get "home!!!" I think it is fun and unique to have other options for staying in Austin. Owner could not have been more attentive and helpful and even made sure some jewelry, I left in the bedroom, was returned to me. If your are looking for convenience, character and comfort, I think you would love this place!!

First of all the owner is really friendly and easy to deal with us and she gave us a privacy.
The house has a good location surrounded by lots of restaurants and the area is very safe and quite:)

Owner's Response: Mr. Al Ali, thanks to the "State of Kuwait" plate your daughter gave me which now hangs on my own kitchen wall, I think of your family often, and always with very fond memories. Thank you for being lovely guests, for opening my world more, and for taking the time to post your review. I hope to see you all again, but next time in Kuwait City. :)

Historic Hyde Park Austin Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
Deirdre is a wonderful hostess, ready to provide anything you need for a comfy cozy stay at this Hyde Park bungalow. If you want to experience Austin life as a local, this is the rental for you. Renting the house for one month, I felt transported into another world. Austin’s Hyde Park is like no other place I’ve experienced. Everyone is friendly and great music and eats are a constant way of life, weather it’s the strum from a guitar next door, or at one of the many local joints. List of bars/clubs within a two mile radius is extensive. I recommend Spider House bar for a local eclectic feel. This place was amazing! I’ve never been to a cooler bar setting. I stayed for one month in the little bungalow. Other places I recommend are Mandola’s Italian, Quack’s bakery, Antonelli’s Cheese Shop, Hyde Park Market/Sunrise Super Store (holy beer selection, gas station, gourmet foods, if you like regional beers from all over the globe, don’t miss this place!!), épicerie (1.8 miles away but worth the drive, best gourmet burger I ate while in Austin, they also have a cheese shop). Within walking distance is the Elisabet Ney Museum, a former studio and portrait gallery by sculpter Elisabet Ney. Curator’s are knowledgeable and will personally escort you through the exhibit. Definitely a must see during your stay. After my stay at 4514 I’m seriously considering a permanent move to the Hyde Park area. In fact, during the month I stayed there, I didn’t leave the Hyde Park area. You will fall in love with Deirdre and her little Hyde Park Bungalow.

Owner's Response: Thank you for providing so many useful details, Gina. It means a lot to me that you stayed in this sweet cottage to write your next romance novel. Wishing you great success and that you'll come back to write your next book, too! You and yours were a delight.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
This is a great little house. That's all one needs to say really. However, I will go on a bit...
The house is one of the last unmolested homes left in Austin from the 30's right down to the original wood floors. It's not enormous but it's charming and the owner has clearly done a great deal of work to maintain the charm while ensuring that everything works flawlessly. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly yet close to a great coffee shop and several restaurants.
I've stayed in both this house and another owned by the same lady and what sets these properties apart from the rest is the owner. Simply said, Deirdre is the best. Her standard of cleanliness is unmatched she is unfailingly gracious and accommodating without ever being obtrusive.

You can't go wrong in making this house a part of your Austin visit.

Great Stay in Hyde Park!

  • 5 of 5
I had an absolutely wonderful stay at the cottage in Hyde Park. It was clean, comfortable and in a great location! Layla (my boxer) and I very much enjoyed our month here. Deirdre was very kind and helpful. She was always available but never intrusive. I would very highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Austin short or long term. Will definitely be back.

I loved my home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in Austin at this charming cottage. I walked to the grocery store, to several restaurants, including Mother's, my favorite, and even to a nice little museum right nearby.

I especially enjoyed Deirdre's nice decorator touches. And the last time I used a built-in ironing board was at a luxury hotel!

Car: not necessary

Included on the National Register of Historic Places, Hyde Park is a rare urban village inside a city. Very few neighborhoods can boast of having their own sculpture museum, live theater, annual tour of homes, the oldest municipal golf course in Texas, 100 year old grocery stores, Austin Farmer's Market, the highest ranked public schools, public tennis courts and swimming pools, and restaurants galore. Proximity to UT makes it popular among faculty and graduate students, and those going downtown find the easy drive attractive. Hyde Park is also popular with young families who enjoy architectural integrity, quiet streets, parks and welcoming community.

Walk to Antonelli’s Artisinal Cheeseshop, Quack’s Bakery & Coffee Bar, Asti Trattoria, Fresh Plus Grocers, Hyde Park Bar & Grill, Mother’s Vegetarian Cafe, Daily Juice Raw Cafe, The Avenue B 100 yr old Grocery, Vino Vino Wine Bar, Mandola's Italian Market, Dolce Vita Gelato and Espresso, Hyde Park Gym, Flying Saucer Pub.

Other Activities: At UT: football and sports, LBJ presidential library, Blanton Art and Texas Memorial Museums.

Golf: Within walking distance is the oldest municipal golf course in Texas, Hancock Public Golf Course.
