About This Listing
Located in French Place neighborhood near campus and very central. Behind my house is a separate guest cottage, 1 bdrm, 1 bath cottage that has its own entrance and complete privacy.
Luxury shower, bamboo floors, queen sized bed, desk, WIFI, mini-fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. Walk to coffee shop, grocery, liquor store and bus lines - all only two blocks away. I love to give tips on where to eat and what to see. I think you will find this a very charming spot to stay in Austin!
Not only is the cottage all your own with complete privacy and not attached, but I offer complete autonomy, if you will, for those of you coming in late or leaving early or whatever, I make it so that we don't have to coordinate schedules and anything works that you need. I will work with you on check in and out times according to the cottage's schedule, and have never had a problem. Most people love the ease of the place and how close it is to coffee shops, downtown, the Eastside's hip restaurants/nightlife, and the university. But, they also like that is in a neighborhood that's quiet and peaceful. Plus parking is plentiful on the street with no restrictions (which can be difficult in some areas of town).
We hope you will stay in the cottage and enjoy the best of Austin!
Interaction with Guests
I usually do not see my guests much, but am available to solve concerns if needed. I try to stay out of each other's way and am pretty busy with other things in my life.

Sara's cottage was perfect for our weekend! The directions helped us find our way in perfectly and at our own convenience, the place was clean and homely and the perfect size for a couple. The neighborhood is nice and conveniently located off of the highway. There was a super cute coffee shop called Cherrywood that we enjoyed and getting downtown was also easy. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this cute, cozy cottage!
The cottage is small but fine for one or two people maximum. It is private, peaceful and in a convenient location. We had a few questions once we arrived but communicated with Sara via text since she was out of town for the weekend. We missed having a TV or radio in the room since we were there during the flash floods and tornado warnings and really would have liked to hear weather updates! Appreciated Sara's willingness for us to bring our small dog with us. Nice yard and sitting area but unable to use it during our stay due to the terrible weather!
Sara's quiet private backyard cottage was exactly what I was looking for during my stay in Austin. It was clean, convenient and very comfortable - exactly as described. Detailed information on the cottage made arriving and departing easy. Coffee, teas and a few beers in the bar fridge were the icing on the cake and very much appreciated!
As others have mentioned, the Cherrywood cafe just a couple blocks away is definitely worth a visit.
Sarah was a fantastic host! Since I'm from the area (now live in Nashville) but just needed a space for a quick trip home, I loved that I could come and go as I pleased. I wasn't looking for a new friend in a strange locale and this space was so perfect for it. The room was cozy, adorable and super-close to some of my favorite places to grab coffee and my friend's homes. I have zero complaints and highly recommend her space to anyone looking for a quiet place to lay your head.

About the Host, Sara
I'm a native Austinite, but moved back after being gone for over ten years, via New York and California. I love all the things to do in Austin and love people to come share in the coolness of our town.
