Currently, Deep Eddy is not available for rentals over 1 week. The Deep Eddy Cottage is a 1946 bungalow that has been in my family since it was built. It's a rare one bedroom house with beautiful hardwood floors, fully equipped kitchen with new 5 burner stove, new Bosch dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, and washer and dryer. It's a great place to get work done too with Grande fiber 1 gig internet. The bedroom has a king sized bed, the dining area has been turned into a sleeping alcove with a queen size innerspring futon. In addition, there is a twin daybed in the ample living room.

About Martha Quinn
I love to travel and have done more than my fair share. I know that what makes a great trip great, is being able to really dig in and live like a native. That's what's so great about staying at a vacation rental instead of a hotel: you get to become a part of the place you're visiting, really try it on and see how it suits you. Next to traveling, I love hosting and entertaining. Offering Deep Eddy cottage allows me to share something very special with folks who like to travel the way I do.
Why Martha Quinn chose Tarrytown
This little house is very special to me and my family. It was my parents honeymoon cottage when they married at the end of WWII and my father was studying pharmacy at the University of Texas. When he finished and they moved to East Texas, they couldn't bear to give it up. And so it saw all four of their children through UT one after the other. In between, they offered it as rental property. I'm the youngest and the only one to settle in Austin, and my father left it to me when he passed away in 1989. I lived in the house for about 20 years. The wonderful thing about having it as a vacation rental, is that I get to use it again from time to time!
What makes this House unique
I can tell you, there is no better location for experiencing the best of Austin. You are 5 minutes to downtown by car, and a 5 minute walk to Deep Eddy Pool or the hike and bike trail around Lady Bird Lake. It's a neighborhood where people still sit on their front porches and will happily engage you in conversation if you're feeling chatty, and just as happily let you have your privacy if that's your preference. It's walkable! There are restaurants, a grocery store, multiple convenience stores, dry cleaners, and natural beauty all within walking distance. Walkability is a bit rare in Austin, but Deep Eddy has it.

Fourth Stay Here
Comfortable, cozy, pet-friendly, and in a cool neighborhood that feels peaceful but is convenient and close to downtown. Martha is easy to work with, a great communicator, and always has the house set up for a great stay.
Love having y'all stay! Looking forward to your next visit!
Cozy and Perfectly Located
Quiet neighborhood close to the best bits of old Austin. The cottage is really nice. Sooo much better than a hotel.
Cute historic home near downtown
We were cozy and comfortable in this affordable and adorable little house. The kitchen was well stocked and even had snacks and coffee add ins! We attended a conference downtown and appreciated the ability to get there easily. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom had all necessary items. We did laundry in the full size washer and dryer. Only downside which I was able to work around-no electric outlet in bathroom; an extension cord would help. Our dog loved the fenced front yard.
There is an extension cord in the plug just outside the bathroom door (and additional extension cords available in the living and bedroom to make charging phones and laptops convenient).
I'm so sorry it wasn't easily visible for you!
Deep Eddy Cottage
Deep Eddy Cottage is a true home away from home. Comfortable king sized bed, stocked with all of the essentials and a very convenient location. The owner is very responsive to needs. We highly recommend this property for a short or long stay.
We could not have asked for a better place to stay for an ACL weekend.
Wonderful bungalow, easy access to downtown
My wife and I stayed here in early June and the house is perfect. Despite 100 degree temps the house stayed comfortably cool, offstreet parking is a much appreciated feature and for the two of us the location is perfect. We walked across the street to Deep Eddy Pool every day, ate at "Pool Burger" more than once, and accessed the trail around town lake, all within walking distance. When the weather is nice its an easy walk along the trail to downtown without ever experiencing Austin traffic.
Honestly, we would have probably settled down here an never left if we didn't have to.
