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.

Nice cottage in a great location. Well decorated and nice backyard. Would recommend
The cottage was great! Located in a charming neighborhood (highly recommend checking out a nearby café called Cherrywood). The place was very clean and exactly as described. Sara made the stay very easy with detailed instructions for our arrival. All in all, a perfect stay for a couple of days in Austin.
This cottage was great! Sara made it so easy for us to come and go as we pleased. The fenced in yard was great for our dog. The cottage is very quiet and private and in a great location.
We had a great weekend getaway at Sara's place! Everything was comfortable and just what we needed. Slept like a champ, the shower was awesome, and the coffee choices have been adopted into our lives. Very accurate description and we felt like a phenomenal value. Even made a kitty friend while having coffee in her wonderful backyard. We will be back!
Lovely little cottage, and very quiet despite proximity to I-35.
Sara dealt very promptly with a couple of minor problems.
The cottage was perfect for a short weekend in Austin. It felt very private, and came with everything we needed – right down to the Austin IPA in the mini fridge, and the koozies to go along with it. On a frigid February weekend, it wasn't within walking distance of much, but there's a great little cafe 3 blocks away (Cherrywood) and the proximity to the freeway and main roads offers easy access to downtown, east Austin, and north Austin.
The cottage was delightful and the neighborhood charming. Private and peaceful, it was also very convenient to downtown. Everything was just as described and very clean. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and stay here again, a great alternative to a predictable hotel room!

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.
