About This Listing
Beautifully renovated two bedroom cottage that is registered with the City of Austin and not subject to any hostile moves by code compliance (kicking out guests, fining owners $2000 a day, etc)
The pics and testimonials tell the story, come stay!
Come enjoy our 860+ sqf renovated cottage with a beautiful back yard large covered deck with hot water spa. The cottage is conveniently located to Downtown & the University of Texas in the heart of the East Side. We are right off the Manor Road bus route and about 1.2 miles from UT and 2 miles from Downtown. The house is fully furnished, newly painted and updated, with furniture from Mexico, Austin, and Sweden. The patio and seating area in the courtyard is perfect for a cold beer or glass of vino. There is plenty of parking and the property has a secured gate and lighting system.
The neighborhood was founded in the 40's and offers unique cottage and houses with that old Austin flare, something that has been disappearing lately. Watch out for occasional chicken running around and bike riders, they are everywhere.
The house is perfect for 1-2 people and can fit up to 4. There are two comfy bedrooms with new queen beds. All linens & kitchen appliances are new.
Right around the corner is the happening Manor road district with coffee houses, restaurants, live venues with dedicated bikes lanes to UT and downtown. Directly behind the property is a light rail station which will zip you straight downtown. Come explore by foot or bike, you will be glad you did!

Had a great stay! The house was well-appointed, immaculately clean, and comfy cozy. And the back porch / hot tub were a treat. Highly recommended!
This is a lovely spot. We had no trouble getting in using the lockbox, and the place is quite cozy. The hot tub was very nice. I brought my husband and my mother to celebrate my mother's birthday, and it was a great size for my small family.
Robert was the man. Super responsive, helpful, and answered all my questions. Best host!
Great property in a fantastic location. Manor has some of the best restaurants and food trucks in the city as well as being super accessible to downtown, university and the rest of the East Side. Hot tub saved my life after days of travel. Robert was an excellent host + a pleasure to deal with. See you soon.
The cottage is adorable & stylish, yet still very comfortable for our family of 3. An easy $10 über trip to down town. We enjoyed our stay for a long weekend & look forward to our next jaunt to Austin.
Robert's place was fantastic! The house was really great and perfectly clean. Everything was well organized and check in/out couldn't have been simpler. I highly recommend a stay here: great value, great neighborhood and a great host.
Listing was very accurate. The house was so fun and nice to stay at. Robert was very accomodating and even left a few beers in the Fridge for our arrival. We, of course, replenished the supply (and some). The house was very clean, the hot tub was heated (very relaxing), sheets were nice and clean. Everything was perfect. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for making us feel right at home Robert.
