Description

The space

Fully remodeled cottage located in Austin’s hip East Side neighborhood. Enjoy the warmth of a home with the conveniences of urban living.

Whether you are visiting for work or play, my one bedroom, one bath home can accommodate all your needs. Cozy (750 sqft) and affordable, this space is generally available for last-minute bookings. Faux wood floors and tile throughout, neutral colors and modern design with a shabby chic feel. The bedroom has a queen bed with down comforter and memory foam mattress and offers direct access to your own private zen garden for outdoor relaxing. Includes TV with DVD player and HDMI cable (no cable subscription), wireless internet, iPod speakers, washer and dryer, extra towels and linens, and a kitchen with an electric stove. The space hospitably accommodates two, but can cozily accommodate up to four as the couch in the living room converts to a queen-sized bed. Pets are welcome with an additional fee.

This guest house is nestled toward the back of the property. There is a larger house on the front property but your home is completely private. Aside from the entrance, which is accessed through a gate attached to the garage, there are no shared spaces.

My home offers excellent accessibility, located near major highways and the airport and less than two miles east of downtown. Enjoy the best locally owned restaurants, bars, food trailers, and cafes Austin has to offer. The cottage is located in East Austin, which is an economically diverse, older neighborhood, home to recent transplants and long-time residents alike.

*This property is licensed by the City of Austin and 15% state and local hotel occupancy taxes are included in the price.

**Special event considerations: check calendar for rates, strict cancellation policy enforced, three night minimum stay for ACL & F1, four night minimum stay for SXSW. Please request weekly rates in and around event times.

***Pets: The house is pet friendly with a fully fenced in yard. There is an additional $75 non-refundable cleaning fee. To book, submit an inquiry including details describing your pet (type, breed, etc.) and upon approval, I will respond with a special offer pricing that will include the added fee. Feel free to use the Instant Book as well, I can shoot over an alteration when it comes through.

Guest access

The guest house is nestled toward the back of the property. Your home is completely private. Aside from the entrance, which is accessed through a gate attached to the garage, there are no shared spaces.

Interaction with guests

The key to the bungalow will be in a lockbox and I'll send you the code shortly before your stay. You can check in and check out as you place. I live right around the corner so should be available on short notice should you need anything.

The neighborhood

The cottage is located in East Austin, which is an economically diverse, older neighborhood, home to recent transplants and long-time residents alike. East Austin is known for having some of the best restaurants, most hip bars, great food trailers, and excellent coffee. In addition, the bungalow offers excellent accessibility, located near major highways and the airport and less than two miles east of downtown. Some folks might find the immediate neighborhood a little shabby but I can assure you that it is safe. I've owned the house since 2012 and have lived there alone for 2+ years with no issues. That said, the whole area is going through the gentrification process, for better or worse, so it's a unique time to be in East Austin. You'll see tear down homes next to million dollar houses.

Getting around

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Bus stops are at the end of the block and Plaza Saltillo, a major metro intersection, is less than a mile away.

PRIVATE TRANSPORTATION
A cab to downtown is $10 and a cab to the airport is $16. Cars2Go and Zip Cars are also available. Uber & Lyft service suspended as of 5/9/16.

BIKING
Austin is bike-friendly. There is a B-cycle station 0.8 miles from the bungalow and many bike shops in the area for longer-term rentals.

Jess's place was great! The bungalow was clean with plenty of room for my friend and I. It was close to everywhere we needed to go (restaurants, bars, festival grounds). We'd definitely enjoy a stay here again.

Regardless of whether you're in town for business, or vacation, this spot is a great little place to stay when you want the creature comforts of home but still plan to be out and about seeing the sights! It's secluded location makes you feel comfortable and safe, and the neighborhood is perfectly Austin Quirky.

Jess was very responsive and polite through the entire reservation process and stay. I loved our spacious cottage and enjoyed the train rumbling through in the evenings. We felt right at home and loved exploring the East Side of Austin; definitely my new favorite part of the city! This rental is right in the heart of an authentic Austin neighborhood and it was great to get away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the city streets. Quick 10-20 minute drive to pretty much anything! Definitely recommend!

Hi guys! I've bounced around over the years but call Austin home. After graduating from University of Texas, I moved off to make it big in Los Angeles, CA. From there, I moseyed on up to Santa Cruz, CA and then took off for a 2 year, worldwide traveling stint. After making it back home, next to broke, I decided it was time to settle down and get a real job. I now work a 9-5 downtown and own a house on the trendy east side.

I love all of the new foodie places popping up in Austin. My two favorites are Barley Swine and Congress.
