Mary's house is really a really cute and cozy place to stay for an Austin visit. Everything was super clean, I was able to easily get in and out of the property with the door code, and Mary left a whole welcome note with information for us as well as some food and basics in the kitchen. Beds were comfy, shower was great, and we loved the little backyard area. It was also really close to the main SoCo area, which is fantastic for walking around. I would absolutely stay again!

Mary's cottage is exactly as described. Super comfy beds and linens, very, very clean and well-kept, convenient location to lots of Austin attractions. A perfect place for our family--two adults and two teens--to stay.

Mary's place was perfect for the three of us! It's in a great location close to everything on the south side of town. The beds were comfy and everything was neat and tidy. The communication with Mary was quick and easy, and she had everything ready including a treat for my sister's 60th birthday.....a very sweet touch.....upon our arrival. THANKS MARY!

I am a native Austinite and love the 78704 area of town. There are so many things you can do near this home like jogging on Town Lake, rent segways and bikes, kayaking/canoeing, eat at one of the many restaurants or just hang out and listen to some of Austin's best live music. This home is 1.5 miles from Town Lake and downtown.
