About this listing
This renovated, detached garage in a backyard oasis is the perfect accommodation for a couple or a single wanting a comfortable stay in the heart of central Austin.
Beautiful one-bedroom private cottage with full bath adjacent to patio, deck, and hot tub; wifi; street parking; walking distance from coffee houses, restaurants, and bars; centrally located in quiet neighborhood.
Our cottage has a separate entrance and is completely private. We live in Hyde Park, an historic Austin neighborhood, close to the University of Texas and downtown. There is a city bus stop two short blocks from our house that goes directly downtown every 20 minutes.
We have a wide range of locally-owned restaurants, bars and food trucks nearby.
Staying at Monica's Cottage was GREAT! In-fact it was perfect. Not only was it completely comfortable, and super private, it is in the best location. It was very, very clean. Monica herself was the perfect amount of friendly and respectful to our privacy. Just all around a great experience. Will definitely use again when given the opportunity.
Staying at Monica's was the highlight of our trip to Austin. The cottage was just perfect and Monica and her family couldn't have been nicer. The bed was so comfortable and the air conditioning quiet and amazing!! From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and Monica gave us some great recommendations. The location of the cottage was great- close to some really cool vintage stores and bars. We really loved the privacy of the cottage also- Monica was available if we needed her but left us to do our own thing. This can sometimes be hard when using Airbnb. Would definitely recommend staying at Monica's if you are planning to visit Austin.
This place was awesome! It is separated from the hosts house and is like a private suite in the backyard converted from what was once a garage. I liked this because we were able to come in late and not bother Monica, the host, at all. Monica was so sweet and even brought us beers to relax with once we came in and were tired from travelling all day. The house was about a $10 Uber from 6th/Rainey St and is walking distance to some bars and restaurants as well. In the morning we walked 2 blocks from the house to a local food truck (Biscuits and Groovy) and then right next door to a really nice coffee shop. I highly recommend a stay here!
Beautiful cozy cottage, so peaceful!! We loved our stay here. The cottage was extremely clean and comfortable. We wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage is in the backyard but felt very private and the fenced in backyard was beautiful and perfect to let our dog out. Loved Monica's collection of cool cacti too.
Monica's cottage was the perfect Austin spot. The air conditioning, generously sized shower, and super soft and cozy bed made the cottage so comfortable, and its location in Hyde Park was so convenient. Monica greeted us and chatted with us about all kinds of fun things to do, and we loved her recommendations (live music, a swimming hole in West Texas that we visited the next day.).
Monica's place was fantastic! Quiet and comfortable...exactly what I needed after long days of meetings! Monica was also a very gracious host! I would absolutely stay there again.
We loved staying at Monica's. The cottage was clean, cozy, and provided the essentials. We booked the cottage just a few hours, prior to arrival. She was accommodating and communicated with us. It's a great location & very convenient. I would definitely stay here again.
