Adorable cottage, perfect visit to Austin

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Austin and the cottage was perfect for our girls trip. Everything we needed and we couldn't have asked for more. Perfect location and walking distance to basically everything! We walked to South Congress pretty much every morning and had coffee and breakfast tacos at Jos. The inside could not be cuter and the master bed was amazingly comfortable! The hosts were wonderful as well---icing on the cake. If this place is available for your dates, do not hesitate to book it!

A lovely cottage in a great location. All you need!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very comfortable and well provisioned. We enjoyed using the bbq and sitting outside under the shade of an umbrella wiith a glass of wine in the warm Austin afternoons. Close to many eating options and fun shopping on Soco.

Adorable Home with GREAT Location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I went to Austin for a girls trip and stumbled on this house and fell in love with the pictures and location and we were even more delighted when we arrived! This house is amazing. Comfortable beds, beautiful decor, walking distance to a plethora of shopping and yummy famous dining. SAFE neighborhood and the owner left us so many things to make us feel at home and special. If I ever visit Austin again, I will be booking here!

Such a charming bungalow with a great location just off South Congress.

  • 5 of 5

The house is well appointed and made for a very relaxing stay. You're located right in the heart of things, but the house feels very private, light and airy. The hosts were super friendly and even left us some muffins.

Great Place in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

I really liked this place. Nice decor and furnishings. Some snacks for breakfast and coffee. Nice and clean as well.

The only thing I would suggest, I wanted to go outside and relax in the back yard. The patio in the pictures looked great so that was one of the reasons I picked this place. But the outdoor furniture didn't have cushions, and sofa outside the door just a metal sofa with wide slats that we couldn't use. The outdoor back yard could use some cleaning up. We just decided not to go outside. Also, it would be good to have some extra tissues in the house. There was only a few left in the box, and no extra's in the house. Austin is bad on our allergies. Other than that everything was great.

Owner's Response: We wish you would have texted us the cushions are in the utility room to protect them from the elements. Our 600 year old oak tree is beautiful but it likes to drop it leaves daily so we will leave a blower outside.
