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.
No unauthorized guests/drugs/riff raff. Smoking outside only.
candles NOT allowed
pond is for viewing NOT for wading or moving rocks around it.
Austin has rolling black outs in summer....please raise AC temp when leaving for 2 or more hours, the loft has an extremely efficient unit with above average insulation that retains the temperature for hours and takes minutes to achieve it!
Don't Rock n Roll the place to death
Enjoy your visit in Austin!
Wow! What a great stay! I loved the funky retro furnishings. During the daytime, the house is full of sun; in the evening, there's a small patio area in front to enjoy a glass of wine and the night sky as you listen to the fountain splash.
The location is terrific: about a half mile from Lady Bird Lake, and 1.5 miles from Whole Foods!
The hostess was laid-back and super-friendly. I appreciated the extra touches, like granola bars and yogurt in the kitchen. I hope to have a chance to visit again.
It was great! Veronica was very sweet, and accommodating. The neighborhood is fantastic, and the cottage was perfect for us!
Veronica was an amazing host - so warm, helpful and fun to chat with. The cottage is even better the pictures if you can imagine that - the ample sunlight, interior design and cozy layout were so Austiny and perfect. When I checked in my first impulse was to just not leave and blow off SXSW! I held all my work meetings there to share the charm with colleagues. The location is excellent access to South Austin and downtown - Bouldin Creek is the place to be. I highly recommend a stay here.
Great location, we didn't drive the whole weekend. Veronica was super quick to respond to any questions.
Great house, great neighborhood, great hostess! We were very comfortable in this cozy loft and felt conveniently located to everything-- within 5-10 minute drive of all the Austin spots we wanted to check out. If the weather had been nicer, we probably could have walked many places! Veronica was very responsive, attentive, and helpful-- she even checked in to be sure we knew where the umbrella and heater were since it was unusually cold and rainy the weekend we were in Austin. Highly recommended spot!
Veronica was amazing. Our trip was delayed due to snow in Philadelphia and when we arrived she had turned on the heaters in the cabin for us and met us outside to welcome us. (So nice after a very, very long trip!) If we were having coffee out front, she'd come to chat, but was never overbearing. (We loved hearing her stories about Austin establishments and personalities!)
The space was cute as a button. Absolutely perfect in every way! It's my dream cabin. The location is great too. We walked to First and South Congress most evenings for eats / dancing (15 minutes), and the Broken Spoke was only a $8 Uber away (do go!).
I was in town for a QuiltCon at the Convention Center and it took me about 30 minutes each day to walk there. Whole Foods is close for necessities (and it's massive), as is the awesome river walkway around the "lake." (If you are a runner, it's exactly an 11 mile loop around the lake and back to Veronica's!) The location could not have been better for us. (We live in a city so we're used to walking everywhere. If you prefer to drive, parking is pretty easy.)
Veronica was awesome and he space was lovely. Highly recommended and we'd stay there again without question if we're back in Austin!

Grew up in Austin and I love my neighborhood, it always keeps up to new changes and still keeps the history of the past. People from all over the world converge to this neighborhood at different times.
