Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. Very charming house in a great location for being close to UT. The house was very clean--the only comment to make here is that the slipcovers on the sofa and chairs could use a wash and the rug on the front porch could use replacing. But overall, everything else was very clean. The beds were comfy. The decor was charming--loved all the books throughout the house. We did enjoy sitting on the front porch and enjoyed the swing there. The owner Joan is very nice and very responsive. We would stay here again.

Perfect fit for a group of five girls! Cozy and in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came to Austin for ACL and Joan's cottage was the perfect size for all of us. Joan was easily accessible via text or phone call. The house was clean and there were SO many fluffy white towels for us to use, which for five ladies was much appreciated! The house is a short drive to several different areas. I would definitely stay here again!

It is a charming cottage!

Two bedroom cottage with one bathroom and "shot-gun" style living room, dining room and kitchen. Nice quiet neighborhood and driveway available for parking 2 cars. Very comfortable and convenient to the UT campus. Near walking/biking trails.

Awesome game-day house

This house was perfect for walking to nearby restaurants, bars, and the stadium. It had everything we needed, and the owner was great. I highly recommend it.

Adorable cottage, well equipped, and great location!

  • 4 of 5

Spent two nights here over a UT football weekend....cottage is in a great location, walking distance to campus, and west campus restaurants. House has all the necessary amenities, is cozy and neighborhood is quiet. Would have liked to stay longer to enjoy the front porch, but the weekend didn't leave a lot of spare time! Texas French Bread is 3 blocks away and offered the perfect morning pastries to go along with our coffee......

About Joan Winter

I am a teacher who loves to travel. Because I have enjoyed coming back to a home (rather than a hotel) when exploring in a new place, I am pleased to offer mine! I grew up in Houston but moved to Austin for graduate school and stayed - who wouldn't? Easy access to nature, beautiful art, live music, great restaurants and, of course, the incomparable Barton Springs. I love this town!

Joan Winter purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Joan Winter chose Central Austin

I chose this property because of its superb central location to both UT, parks and downtown and because it has character and coziness - two features I most appreciate in a place and in a person.
