About This Listing
Putting the Murphy bed down creates two different regions in the cottage for extra privacy.
Nestled in the very back of our backyard amid the cacti and bamboo, this sun-filled 1 bdrm, 1 bath cottage comfortably fits two. Enjoy spitting-distance access to UT, downtown Austin, I-35 and the MetroRail, as well as the restaurants, coffee shops, food trailers and parks of the eclectic Eastside Cherrywood neighborhood. Or just laze about on our hammock.
It's accessible through our driveway or a gate on the other side of our yard, giving you complete privacy to you come and go as you like. The queen-sized Murphy bed folds up to give even more space. Other features include a lots of window space with blinds, a large desk/table, 24/7 WIFI access, and a mini-fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. And of course, AC (as well as heat for the one week of the year it's cold here).
We're located in the tree-lined French Place section of Austin's eclectic Cherrywood neighborhood, near campus and very central. Downtown is only a few minutes away by car, bus or train. You'll have an easy two-block walk to assorted coffee shops, groceries, liquor stores, taco joints and food trailers, as well as a fair share of well-reviewed restaurants. You can hop-skip to the bus or drive in under five minutes to the nearest MetroRail station (a must during SXSW or ACL, when parking downtown is impossible).
We'll work with you on check in-and-out times. Our two large cats will work with you on any feline needs. (Though they're not allowed in the space, so if you're allergic, don't worry.)
Parking is a breeze on the street with no restrictions or permits required.

Steve was incredibly welcoming and insightful for our short stay. The cottage is perfect!! Thanks Steve!
Everything was great at this cottage. Steve was very nice, and provided extra amenities, such as yogurt and cookies. It was close to the UT area, and there were several great restaurants and bars within walking distance. I would definitely recommend staying here.
This place was awesome! Super clean, very quiet and very nicely put together. Steve was super friendly and also provided some really delicious cookies, some wine, and some other snacks! There is a nice little market and coffee shop right down the street. We were in for a wedding and getting to the various locations around town from here was super easy!
This was great! My second time using air bnb and Steve was awesome. The studio was clean and stocked with everything we might need. He provided recommendations and vouchers for free coffee at a local coffee shop and he even helped us carry our bags through the rain! Would definitely recommend, 10/10
We loved this space. It was so well designed and thought out that it was a pleasure. Very clean and comfortable as well. Beautiful neighborhood full of large trees and gardens and unique houses. Easy walk to great coffee shops and restaurants. Friendly and knowledgable hosts. And Austin is so cool. Definitely recommend.
