The space

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. I am happy to give you suggestions of places to go and have a chat when we see one another though.

Getting around

I am a block from a bus stop and a few blocks from another. Easy to bike to UT from my place and walk to restaurants and coffee shop a few blocks away. Best way is a car and there is easy parking on my street.

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.
