This was a little slice of heaven in the business that is Austin. So quiet and secluded with an incredible backyard filled with little friends! We would recommend the cottage any day and we're sad to only stay a day. We ended up taking a cab to a wedding downtown forgetting that uber is no longer active in austin, so I would just recommend calling at least 20-30 minutes before you have to leave to make sure a cab can get to you as it takes a bit longer than an uber typically would. Otherwise, perfect trip and would love to come again!

Marcella User ProfileMarcella is a superhost.

Hi! My name is Marcella. Here's a little about me:

1) I have an amazing partner, Meredith, and an ever fluctuating number of kids living with us.

2) The reason why the number of kids changes is because we are foster parents.

3) Being a foster mom is the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done.

4) I began hosting on airbnb as a way to supplement our income and allow me to stay home with our 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 make really good English Toffee.

10) I always share some of my toffee with guests. :)
