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!

  • This was my first time in Austin and I LOVED it! Veronica'a cottage was clean, perfect location, and Veronica was a great host! Everything that was listed in the description was at the cottage. It is in a great neighborhood within walking distance to just about everything! Thank you Veronica!

  • It's a lovely place and Veronica is a lovely person. It's an old working class neighborhood which is changing fast. You can walk down to the Colorado River and hang out on the pedestrian bridge, which is really nice at night. Coffee shop up the street. The sound of trains at night. I was enchanted.

  • We had a great stay in this cute little house. For 2 people it is perfect. We enjoyed all the space we had, it is definitely much more relaxed to stay in this house than to stay in a hotel room (which were much more expensive in the time of our visit). It's a 25 min walk downtown, but there are many buses (costs are only 1 dollar) so it's convenient. We enjoyed being able to make tea and to have some breakfast (Veronica provided some delicious oatmeal). The shower is nice too. I would definitely recommend this place!

  • What a beautifully decorated cottage and such gracious hosts - this is a pad that will get you into the Austin vibe in 5 seconds and keep you there for as long as you're lucky to stay!

  • Veronicas cottage was so cozy,comfortable and quiet. It is in a great neighborhood and is conveniently located to everything. We walked everywhere or rented bikes from the very convenient bike share program Austin has. We didn't even need a car to explore this great town. I will definitely be coming back and if Veronicas cottage is available I would definitely rent it again.

  • We had a wonderful time staying in Veronica's Cottage! It was perfect for all of our needs. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful--great trees, chirping birds, and Veronica's lush patio and garden. It was very convenient to walk to 1st, Lamar, and Congress to walk downtown or grab a bus. There were a few places we had planned to go to that were not super accessible by public transportation, so we ended up renting a car from Enterprise, which was 0.5 miles from Veronica's. Parking on the street would have been super easy, but Veronica had a spot for us--which was great! Such a wonderful host--almost like staying at an Aunt's you have never met. We felt very much at home and are looking forward to our next trip to Austin and Veronica's!

  • I've visited Austin many times before, but I'm now convinced I'd never really experienced the real Austin until my stay at Veronica's. Veronica and her cottage are an authentic slice of what gives Austin its funky soul, and sets it apart from the rest of the state.

    The cottage was a clean, cozy, and charmingly decorated little space with some high ceilings and lots of light that make it feel open and airy. Overall, the photographs accurately depict the grounds, space, and decor.

    The neighborhood was very quiet, the only exception being the occasional train horn that was just loud enough to be charming. Many things to do within walking distance, but be prepared for a moderate walk to get out of the neighborhood and over to S. Congress.

    For the technically minded who may be curious I can report that there was good data coverage in the cottage with Sprint (4G LTE), Verizon and AT&T.

    On future visits to Austin, I'll definitely be checking availability with Veronica first!
