The Space

Easy to get around all the historic music locations by walking or on the bus line! Downtown area, UT Campus, and Capital building very close attractions as well! You are literally super close to everything awesome that Austin has to offer!

My original 1924 two-story former carriage house has been converted into a funky & open space loft. It is comfortable and full of Austin charm! Queen bed upstairs lower has day bed and a new Skandinavian convertible sofa / bed. Full kitchen,shower, basic toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, hair dryer, & towels) are provided. The Rock Garage is located behind my home and they share a cool and funky garden area with a pond.

A perfect place to hang out in the morning while enjoying a cup of coffee and the Texas sun (before it gets too hot!). You will have full privacy here and your own Keyless entrance into the property. I'm always available for local recommendations if you like!

All linens are washed on "Sanitize" in a LG steam washer with organic soaps. No use of pesticides are used on my property. This a green home, so I encourage you to make use of my recycle bins and be respectful to the environment.
I have put in a keyless lock, so you will never fumble or loose your key!

Coming to Austin for one of the many Marathons? Lady Bird Lake (Colorado River) and our great jogging trail are only 5 blocks away. Quickly WALK to Zilker Park, home of Barton Springs Pool and the Austin City Limits Music Festival!
During ACL, SXSW, there is a 3 day minimum and price is listed on calendar.

  • My friend and I were visiting Austin over 4th of July weekend and wanted to experience the local flavor so we decided to rent a local's place. Veronica's cottage was super cute, and had everything we needed. Easily accommodated both of us. Quiet, safe neighborhood - as two females we felt very comfortable walking around.The location of her place was perfect for everything we wanted to do. It was a short walk to the South Congress area, and close to lots of great food and sights (it was a little TOO close to Gourdough's Doughnuts in fact!) :)

    Would definitely rent again when visiting Austin!

    Thanks for telling me ...the next guests mentioned these things also...
    Some how the refrigerator got turned to LOW ,I increased it...not a problem.
    Same with remote control for the Mitsubishi AC... someone fiddled with all the buttons ... I reset that so that it can be chilly as needed.
    As for wifi ...moved router.
    Thank you & glad you had fun in Austin

  • We had a great stay at Veronica's cottage. We were out most of the time so didn't meet in person but she was very responsive to our questions and preparations. The place was clean, interesting, and comfortable. The location was great to access the areas we were going in South Austin and downtown. Happily would recommend to others and will return when we can. Thanks!

  • This was the first time we had used Airbnb. We met Veronica the morning after our first nights stay. Charming, friendly lady. The cottage was clean and inviting. My wife and I were in and out so we did not spend much time at the cottage. The neighborhood is quiet and lush with trees and greenery. Very close to South Congress and Lamar, both streets with a lot happening. I would consider staying here on our net visit to Austin if it is available.

    Hi thanks for everything

  • We rented this house the day before and Veronica was extremely quick to reply and answer all our questions. When we arrived, we thought we were renting a house, but it's really a converted garage next to the owner's main home. Not a big deal, but it wasn't clear in the photos.

    The cottage itself is cool and funky which is a style we like. Had great AC and hot water shower. Bed was super comfortable. We prepared most of our meals in the full kitchen (saves us money). We easily parked right outside our door.

    The best part of the cottage is the neighborhood in South Austin. We loved walking around looking at all the renovated houses along the tree covered streets. Zilker Park is a short walk. We had a great afternoon at Barton Springs ($3 pass). Downtown is about 1.5 mile walk over the bridge (its close people). There's also a public bike stand close buy to rent bikes with a credit card.

    Veronica is really the best part of the package. She knows the city and is cool/friendly. She gave us plenty of privacy/space, but we were knew she was close by if we needed anything. We'd stay again for sure.

  • Veronica and the house are both lovely! I felt immediately at home, as though in a super-hip version of my grandparents' house! Veronica's style and her hospitality are hard to beat.

  • This is the second time we stayed with Veronica. It's a great place to stay for a couple, with a 10 minute walk to the fun end of South Congress Ave. We love the simplicity and nice touches such as water bottles in the fridge and recycling bins.

    Had a nice chat to Veronica too, very welcoming and full of knowledge of the area. Had a great stay again!

  • Veronica was a truly wonderful host; warm, welcoming, engaging and informative. We arrived to wine and beer (perfect!) and an introduction to the area. The cottage was wonderful! It's set in a leafy, eclectic, artistic garden setting (with pond) that was a joy to experience. At night the frogs sang us to sleep and we woke up feeling like we were in a tree house (the bed is by two large windows on the second floor) listening to birdsong. I haven't slept so well in ages. It's a perfect size for two (but could fit more), with a lovingly furnished interior filled with vintage treats that's fun to explore in itself. The location is perfect for discovering Austin. A lovely walk (by a creek and tree lined homes) to some great restaurants on 1st and buzzing South Congress, or north to the riverwalk and downtown. There's plenty of car2go and bus options if you don't have a car - including to the airport (about a 20 min walk to the 100 airport bus). It's also a great place to work (great wifi and a tranquil spot) if you have to, hopefully you don't :) The perfect introduction to Austin.

    That's funny! But would love to do that during the brutal Texas summer.

    Hi Elspeth, I like that idea, maybe I can figure that out for the future.
    Hope your well & not working to hard!

  • Warm reception by the host! Nice little apartment in a green area of Austin. Best of all: it is in walking distance of both South and Downtown Austin bars and restaurants. We loved the fact that there is a private seating area in the garden. And I spotted a hummingbird on the morning we left... doesn't leave much to be desired. We would certainly like to stay here again
