Interaction with Guests
I am happy to offer Austin recommendations specifically tailored to your interests. A week before your arrival, I will be in touch to provide check in directions.
East Austin is a diverse, hip area full of unique bars, restaurants, and shops. Andrew and I have lived here since 2005 and can't imagine living anywhere else in town (we actually did for a hot second, but came back as soon as we could!). The Cesar Chavez/2nd Street neighborhood is a rapidly changing area. It's a fantastic mix of new and old businesses, long-time residents and recent arrivals. Here, you'll see folks sitting on their front porches, bbq-ing in their backyards, walking their dogs, or riding their bikes. Wave and say 'howdy' - you're in Texas!
Just behind the cottage, you'll find two fantastic craft cocktail bars - Stay Gold and Craftsman. Both places are quite popular and are open until 2am on the weekends. Depending on the night, they can be a bit on the noisy side (I provide earplugs). UPDATE 2/3/16 - THE COTTAGE NOW FEATURES A HIGHLY RATED WHITE NOISE SOUND MACHINE to combat the bar noise. If you like being in the middle of the action, you'll find this location perfect. If you'd rather have a quiet getaway, ask me about my other listings that are in more residential neighborhoods.
Though this location is quite walkable to many Austin hotspots, Austin is also a very easy city to get around. Rent a bike from a B-Cycle station, ride the Capital Metro, or take an Uber or Lyft. If you're out on East 6th or Rainey, you can also grab a pedicab to take you home at the end of the night.

HOUSE RULES -
No parties, no loud music, no smoking inside the house. Only the number of guests you reserved should be at the house - any number over is considered a party. Austin's noise ordinance states no loud activity after 10:30pm. Please be respectful of our neighbors and keep noise to a minimum after that time - especially while on the porch.
Smoking outside is fine, but please dispose of all cigarettes in the outside trash cans before you leave. If the house smells like smoke, you will be charged the security deposit.
Wine, beer, coffee, and tea are provided for you. Please be respectful.
Very simple check out guidelines are provided in the Welcome Packet - we ask that you follow these before checking out of the house. We will claim the security deposit for any excessive cleaning (if the cleaning crew requires more than 3 hours).
If any violations of these house rules occur, you will owe the full deposit.
Thank you and enjoy your stay.
Andrew and I live in Austin, TX. When we travel, we look for boutique hotels and well-appointed vacation rentals in the heart of the city. We like being steps away from the hottest restaurants and cocktail bars. We've decorated our vacation rentals to reflect these tastes and provide you with a cozy, chic home away from home!
