We had a great stay in Veronica's cottage. It was exactly as described - a real taste of Austin. It was just the right size for the 3 of us that stayed there. The location is great! It's walking distance to SoCo, the Congress Ave bridge, and downtown. We would definitely stay here again!
Staying at Veronica's was one of the reasons why our Austin trip was so memorable and fantastic. The place was filled with so much character and was in a very quiet yet convenient location. We didn't have a car and took Uber rides everywhere which were easy to get. The house has everything you need (toiletries, hair dryer, towels, AC!!! etc.) and there were two Lone Star beers waiting for us when we got there -- very clutch on a hot Spring day in Austin.
Veronica was such a delightful and accommodating host and knows the ins and outs of Austin having lived here for 30+ years. I'd definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a charming place to stay.
We really enjoyed our stay in this adorable neighborhood! The place was comfy and well-stocked and Veronica made sure to check in to see if we needed anything. She is a great host and knowledgeable about Austin. We appreciated the recommendations of restaurants and things to do!
Veronica was super welcoming! Beginning with a lovely conversation when I arrived to dropping me off (in the rain) at a great restaurant the morning of my departure, she was both friendly and accommodating.
I love the neighborhood, which reminds me of my own in Asheville, with its eclectic and interesting assortment of houses, both old and new.
The little carriage house itself is a Bohemian hideaway -- homey, colorful, cosy and interesting, with just about everything you could possibly need.
For me, it was a wonderful alternative to the conference hotel my colleagues were staying in.
Veronica's cottage is perfect for 3 or 4 people. The bedroom upstairs is very comfortable, as are the couches in the living room. Also, the grounds are beautiful! The garden/yard of both this cottage and Veronica's home are amazing and zen-like. This is wonderful home base for people seeking to experience Austin from all angles - we enjoyed saying for Levitation (aka Austin Psych Fest) and Veronica was truly an amazing host with lots of information and insights not only into the local area, the festival etc; she also told us a lot about the music itself and clued us into the programming on the local radio station (Austin's KUTX 98.9 - check it out!) which helped us learn even more about the bands we're going to see.
Thanks for the great time, Veronica! Hope to return again next year. :)
Veronica was a wonderful host! She made me and my girlfriend feel right at home. The location of the home was amazing. It was within walking distance of everything, from parks and pools, to downtown entertainment. The house was quaint and cozy, perfect for a couples getaway. We didn't want to leave! Thanks for everything Veronica.
Veronica's gorgeous cottage was the perfect spot for an Austin break. Set in a quiet, beautiful nature spot, it's close (10 min walk max) to the brilliant South Congress Ave full of quirky shops & eateries, a nice stroll say from Downtown & loads of excellent food trucks just 5 mins away. Veronica was there to give us a nice welcome & helpful recommendations. The main bed was comfy & our two friends who joined us for the break said the sofa-bed downstairs was really comfy too. There's air-con, toiletries & even coffee provided. I thoroughly recommend this place.
