About This Listing
Our cottage with a loft has an open rustic feel that will relax and rejuvenate. It is tucked in a colorful, central hood; next to entertainment districts, major bus routes and the rail station. Come experience Austin living! or ACL or SXSW!
Close to downtown, UT, and both the North Loop and Burnet entertainment/shopping districts. Easy access to main highways, and public transportation (bus and light rail). We are lovers of live music and original Austinites, so my husband and I can help with local suggestions. We can also pick you up from the airport as it's only 10-15 minutes away. Our cozy kitchenette is perfect for your own meal preparations and the screened-in porch is great for relaxing with a cold beer!

My friend and I stayed in Amelia and Aaron's cottage for a long weekend. The cottage is charming and looks exactly as shown. It was so nice to arrive to snacks and fruit after a day of travel. I didn't have a chance to met our hosts but I felt welcome and comfortable. Unfortunately our long weekend overlapped with torrential thunderstorms and Amelia was great about checking in on us in general yet especially when the storm was quite heavy. A car could be helpful but we managed ok taking the bus during the day and cabs a night.
My wife and I had a great time at their back cottage. Snacks and fresh fruit were waiting for us when we arrived, not to mention a few lone star beers. The loft bed was a lot of fun! We rented a car, (which I do recommend doing in Austin). So getting around was no big deal. Aaron and Amelia were great hosts and I would highly recommend Air BnBing with them.
Aaron and Amelia were both super welcoming! They went out of their way to stock the place with fresh fruits, snacks, and drinks. They were sure to put some local guides and a list of helpful local tips to help us navigate the city. Their neighborhood was nice and easily accessible. The space was exactly as seen, and was absolutely lovely!
Aaron and Amelia's cottage was absolutely perfect. The location is close to downtown but in a nice quiet neighborhood, the space was very clean and tidy, and Aaron and Amelia provided some fresh fruit, local transit info, and restaurant info that was incredibly helpful. During the storm that passed through while my fiancee and I were there, they were quick to check-in with us and ask if we needed anything. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Austin and when we make a trip back, we will definitely look them up again!
We had a wonderful time at Aaron and Amelia's cottage :) Even though we unfortunately did not get the opportunity to meet our hosts, we still we felt very welcome and comfortable at their place. The cottage was very clean and cute! Check-in and check-out time was extremely flexible which was ideal for us. Amelia was a great communicator which was very helpful and much appreciated :) I would definitely recommend their place to others!!
Aaron and Amelia were very welcoming and helpful. Their space is beautiful, comfortable and better in person. If you want to get a sense of what it's like to live in the real Austin, check out this place.
Aaron and Amelia were great hosts on my latest trip to Austin. Their cottage was perfect for me and my girlfriend and was in a great neighborhood of Austin. Aaron and Amelia were there if we needed them and were very friendly and helpful at check in. The pictures online are very accurate of this amazing cottage. Overall I give them an A+ as hosts and can't wait to return to Austin and stay with them again.
