Private Cottage-Near UT/Hyde Park

House - Entire home/apt · Hollywood Ave, Austin, TX 78722, United States

The Space

Behind the 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. Located in French Place neighborhood near campus and very central. 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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I absolutely loved staying in Sara's cottage - it was one of my all time favorite places to stay. The cottage is incredibly comfortable and so well decorated. There are many interesting pieces of art and furniture and it's a space that is both beautiful and interesting. The eclectic collection of books, amazing shower, and extremely comfy bedding are all noteworthy. Sara was also very easy to work with - getting into the cottage was a breeze, it was very clean, and Sara was very responsive to all of my emails. I would recommend this place to anyone who is spending time in Austin.

  • As always, staying at Sara's place is a great experience. She's only a text away if you need anything and is super kind. The location can't be beat and it is an extremely relaxing space.

  • I stayed at Sara's guest cottage for the month of January. Sara was a great host and always answered any questions I had within minutes. The cottage is very private, I could come and go as I pleased at whatever time of the day.

    The room was a good size for one person, the bed was comfortable and desk very large. The wifi signal was sometimes a little weak but as long as I moved around in the room or restarted my computer it was fine. Parking on the street was safe and always available.

    I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a longer stay or just a quick weekend.

  • We had a great time at Sara's cottage! Sara's communication with us was excellent, and the cottage was comfortable and cozy. It was just what we were looking for. We felt like we had privacy, but we knew Sara was available if we needed her. Everything was just as she described it, both on the website and in our instructions email. We will definitely look to return!

  • Lovely cottage in a great section of town. The inside was very homely and relaxing for us on top of being well maintained and clean. Parking is a breeze out front and despite locking ourselves out Sara was very accommodating and responsive. Wifi had some slight connection issues depending on where you were in the room but we got by just fine. Would recommend to friends and gladly stay again!

  • Sara's cottage was attractive and clean. Perfect if you are 1 or 2 people, and not planning to stay there very much, as it's just one room. Loved the cool shower, artwork, and thorough instructions about getting into the guesthouse. We had no problems and would recommend this to others!

  • Lovely clean recently renovated cottage in a safe fenced in back yard of nice neighborhood. My fiance and I really liked the new glass tile shower. It is close (block and a half) to a Fiesta grocery store and a coffee shop for a nice breakfast. About 3 blocks to public transportation into downtown. Downtown is about 20-25 mins of a bus ride (Bus 37). FYI cabs are scarce in this part of town and take a half hour or so to get there. Sara was very helpful when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the cottage one morning even though she was out of town that weekend. She responded to our text very quickly and her Mom came by with an extra key to let us in. Thanks again Sara. Would recommend this place to stay to my friends and family.

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.
