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 chickens, goats, bunnies, a duck and the cutest (and feistiest) pot-belly pig in Austin.

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. Fully equipped bathroom with walk-in shower and a large closet. Small refrigerator and microwave for your convenience. Coffee pot and toaster oven. Free Wi-Fi!

Enjoy a private entrance onto our beautiful 1/2 acre lot. 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 (noon) 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!

Guest access

Guests are welcome to enjoy everything our backyard has to offer. Play with the cats, give treats to the pig, throw the ball to the dogs, sing to the chickens, lounge in the hammock or adirondack chairs.

Interaction with guests

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 girls to sing for you, do a gymnastics routine, or put on a theatrical play. They love the attention!

Lovedddddd this place so cute and magical! Really makes you feel like you're in a fairytale! Very close to downtown. It can get hot during the day with Texas heat but it does cool down in the evening. Overall great place to stay!

Had I known this place was only equipped with a window AC unit I would not have chosen to stay here in the worst heat of the summer. I arrived to a hot stuffy room and sat around for 2 hours waiting for it to cool down after adjusting the settings but it was still too uncomfortable to stay the night. The host offered to come clean the air filter but I did not feel that would be an instant fix. I left and went to a Holiday Inn. The cottage is right next to an air stream parked on the property so it doesn't offer much privacy. Thankfully, AIRBNB gave me a full refund after the host refused to.

This is a fantastic stay, and what Marcella is doing is an amazing venture to provide a future for their kids and others in need of help. The place is just a drive to downtown to explore Austin. The place is a little warm in the day during the summer heat, but cools off at night with the AC. The bed, you will sink into it like you are sleeping on a cloud, so soft.

Great place! A peaceful little hideaway while still close to city life. The cottage was clean and inviting. We absolutely loved the animals and landscaping in the yard.

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. :)
