Guest quarters in charming 1907 house. Mere steps to terrific restaurants, bars, galleries, shopping, and all the best stuff happening in Central East Austin. Also insanely close to Downtown/Convention Center, SXSW events, Capitol, and UT.
This fully equipped, eclectically decorated suite is part of my house, but it has its own bedroom, bath, small kitchen, and private entrance. It also has a Iot of light, wireless Internet, a brand-new flat-screen TV with lotsa cable, Bose MP3 player speaker, a king-sized bed, a full-sized fold-out couch for extra guests, a third futon for large groups, and a lovely screened-in porch with downtown views, fantastic for working on a laptop, reading, or playing. Gated (not covered) parking is included.
Kitchen is fully appointed with full oven/fridge/dishwasher, as well as toaster, microwave, coffee maker, French press, dishes, etc. Coffee, teas, and basic milk and breakfast products available. Bath towels and basics (including blow dryer) are provided.
*IMPORTANT for those with *severe* allergies to dog dander*: I live on the other side of the house with two dogs. The dogs don't stay in the guest apartment, but I have had one person (in 2+ years of renting) affected by their dander. So if you or someone in your party is extremely sensitive to dog dander, this is probably not the place for you.*
If you have special dietary needs (such as rice or soy milk for coffee/tea), please let me know ahead of time, and I'm glad to accommodate you.
Up to five bicycles of varying quality, along with helmets and locks, are available at no extra charge.
I live in the other part of the house and am happy to be as invisible or as helpful as you desire - I've lived in Austin forever and can give you all sorts of tips for most anything you want to do.
I'm trying to get basic written guides together, but feel free to ask in the meantime.
One more thing: Booking is first-come, first-serve. Regrettably, I cannot hold the space for you or show you the rental prior to booking.
I'm fine with moderate noise, small parties, and so on, but nothing too outrageous. Try not to break stuff. Clean up spills. That sort of thing. If possible, please text me if there are problems or issues.
NO SMOKING INSIDE. I do allow smoking on the porch.
I live in the other side of the house and have two large, friendly dogs, whom you don't have to encounter if you don't want to (we share the laundry room, which is on their way to their dog door, but if you want to do laundry without meeting them, you can let me know ahead of time, and I'll keep them inside my house). I can't guarantee you won't encounter dander in the laundry room, but I'll do my best.
Cindy was a perfect host, caring and helpful.
The house is perfectly located, in a quiet and nice area in East Austin, it's clean and well decorated.
I would mostly recommand to go to her place for your journey in Austin !
Cindy's Cotton Street Suite is the cream of the crop, the best spot in East Austin -maybe the best Airbnb in all TX! Cindy was respectful and welcoming. The suite had seemingly every area of concern covered and provided for a relaxing and private stay, the week prior to SXSW. The neighborhood was very safe. The wireless internet and home amenities were convenient and fast. The suite's location was the perfect distance for biking to downtown and surrounding destinations. Cindy's two wonderful and friendly dogs were a non-issue to the suite stay -we only met them once while they were on a walk with Cindy; otherwise, they were completely invisible to the privacy of the suite. This suite is a must visit for any airbnbers staying in ATX!
Great place to stay in East Austin. Cindy was responsive leading up to the visit. Just as described in her listing, nice private addition to the house and her dogs are friendly if you're a dog person!
We loved everything about our stay at Cindy's!! She was very responsive to messages prior to our stay, and gave us clear instructions on all of the check-in procedures. The apartment itself was so cute and clean, and she had everything we could have needed, from dishes, reusable grocery bags, travel size toiletries, and tons of clean linen and towels. We only had 3 people, but a larger group would still be very comfortable here. The location was also perfect and only a cheap uber ride from bars and entertainment (although she did have bikes, which we would have taken advantage of had we not been bar hopping). I can't recommend this place enough--we wish we could have stayed longer!
Everything worked out great at Cindy's place. She was quick to answer all my questions and house directions were clear. The suite is cute and very clean. It's close enough to downtown (I took an Uber to the convention center) and only a few blocks from some restaurants and shops.

I've lived in Austin forever, and I love to be an ambassador for my chosen hometown. I'm a writer and editor. I have two big, rambunctious dogs whom I adore (and who will not be staying at the house during guest stays). My two passions since childhood have been rock music and journalism, and, with a few tweaks, that's what they still are. I dunno - I'm a liberal arts major who does and likes the things liberal arts majors do. I love delicious and adventurous food, books, great movies, design of all kinds, plants, and traveling, which I don't get to do enough of. I tend to enjoy big, cosmopolitan ciites like New York, Paris, and Rome or beautiful beaches in Mexico or high desert like Marfa and surroundings or northern New Mexico. I'm friendly and goofy. I'm sure you've stopped reading by now.
