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 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.

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

  • 5 of 5

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......

Charming House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house over Parent's weekend at UT. The location was in walking distance to campus, which was great. Our daughter loved staying with us there, and getting away from the dorm to a house setting. The house is lovely! We loved sitting on the front porch and visiting with our kids. My husband is a UT grad and loved feeling the AUstin vibe. We will be back. Thanks, Joan!

Great location, nice cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented from Joan for a weekend in Austin. The house is very nice. Its an older home with lots of charm. It was very clean and looks to have been kept up well. There is a swing on the front porch that is neat, too. The house has a nice area for sitting in the living room, the kitchen isnt huge but is everything you need. There are 2 bedrooms, the first having a full or queen bed (I cant remember the exact size). The second bedroom has 2 twin beds. There is only 1 bathroom, but that was not a problem for us.

The location was great for walking to restaurants/bars near Guadalupe or campus. Getting around the streets was a tight fit with cars parked on both sides of the streets, but thats all over west campus. Overall, it was a great place for a weekend getaway to be close to UT campus/Austin and I would recommend it.
