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.

    February 2014
  • 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.

  • My wife and I had a wonderful and relaxing stay in the cottage during the inaugural Formula 1 race weekend. Everything was exactly as described and very nicely done. We only briefly saw Travis, Sara's husband, when we arrived and he was very helpful for the few questions we had.
    We never saw anyone else, it was very private and very quite. The front house was also rented but we never saw or heard anyone while we were there.
    The cottage is conveniently located near 3 Metro bus stops located up the street and it was very easy to get anywhere. We used the 37, 320, and the 22 lines.
    The Cherrywood Coffeehouse around the corner is a fantastic place to get a breakfast taco and coffee or a burger and beer.

    November 2012
  • Very straight forward. The host was very communicative and the instructions to let ourselves in were detailed and easy to follow. We stayed for four nights and bumped into the host just once — a hassle free and comfortable stay.

    The cottage was great! Everything was clean and ordered. It was essentially a hotel-level experience.

    November 2012
  • We had a fabulous and stress free stay with Sara. Great location and easy access to everywhere we needed to be. I highly recommend renting their cute little cottage!

    November 2012
  • Great location. Great facility, nice and quiet, with seperate acess areas. Would recommend to anyone. Stay in Austin was enjoyable because of this.

    October 2012
  • The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    October 2012
  • Great locations very close to UT campus, very quiet neighborhood and well appointed accommodation, would stay there again and would highly recommend Sara's place. Could not have been a better place for my ACL weekend in October.

    October 2012
  • Sara's nice little cottage in a nice little neighborhood was the perfect quiet place to stay for our trip to Austin. We were there to attend a UT football game and knowing that all the hotels would likely be booked, we went to AirBnB where we found several accommodations that were close by. We discovered that we actually should have walked from that location to the stadium because when we finally found a place to park, it was about the same distance from the stadium.

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.
