Our cozy cottage located in our backyard garden is your own private oasis. Queen bed, hardwood floors, walk-in shower, high-speed internet, and a 1/2 acre lot right outside your door--complete with a rooster, chickens, cat, and two pigs.

The space
This fantastic backyard garden oasis has been completely remodeled and is available for rent by the night. Hardwood floors, AC unit, heater, queen-size bed with a fluffy duvet in the winter/quilt in the summer. Fully equipped bathroom with walk-in shower and a large closet. Small refrigerator and microwave for your convenience. Coffee pot with fresh ground coffee and tea. Free Wi-Fi!

Enjoy a private entrance onto our beautiful 1/2 acre lot. Ping pong table, enormous outdoor dining space and mercantile for shopping on the property. Take in the fresh air while sitting in the Adirondack Chairs right outside your door or spend the day reveling in all that Austin has to offer. We are 3 1/2 miles from downtown Austin and the U.T. campus. There is a bus stop just a short walk up the street. Check-out time is 11:00 am and check-in time is after 2:00 pm.

No minimum stay. Also available for rent by the month. Please look at calendar carefully as rates are subject to increase during festivals and other high traffic times (SXSW, ACL, F1, etc.) Price increases are reflected on the calendar!

If you have animal allergies, this is NOT the place for you. Please take time to look at the pictures. We have a lot of animals on our property. We think of this as a huge plus, but allergy sufferers will most likely feel otherwise.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to enjoy everything our backyard has to offer. Play with the cats, give treats to the pigs, throw the ball to the dogs, sing to the chickens, lounge in the hammock or adirondack chairs. We also have a ping pong table, large outdoor dining space, fire pit and grill available for guest use.

What do we love most about our neighborhood? The fact that we have a HUGE lot so close to downtown. It's like having a little bit of the country in the city.

Hi! My name is Marcella. Here's a little about me: 1) I am a mom to five of the most gorgeous and amazing children on planet earth. 2) All of my children are adopted through foster care. If you've ever been interested in becoming a foster parent, PLEASE talk with me. 3) You will probably see my kids while you are here. This is a family business and they love interacting with the guests. 4) I began hosting on airbnb as a way to supplement our income and allow me to stay home with the kiddos. 5) I'm so glad I did, because I LOVE being an airbnb host! 6) When I have some free time, I love to garden or putter around outside doing projects. 7) I love animals but never expected to have quite so many. 8) I also never expected to be washing so much laundry as an adult. :) 9) I have two pigs who both paint. 10) I sell their paintings and other fun souvenirs in the little store on our property. :)

During your stay
We LOVE to chat with our guests, but also understand when people are looking for a private retreat. We live in the main house and spend a lot of time on our back porch and in the yard. Come talk to us and visit whenever you want. Or ask our kids to sing for you, do a gymnastics routine, or put on a theatrical play. They love the attention!
