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.

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.

Great spot, close to the university and nearby restaurants on Manor Rd. The neighborhood is really nice and quiet, and parking is plentiful.

This is a great spot to stay especially if you need to be close to UT or downtown as we did. Easy to get to, and close to nice restaurants as well. Sara even let me use her iron and ironing board as I was there for an interview but she's easy to contact and was helpful leading up to the trip. Was also cheaper than hotels on our short notice arrangements. She has plenty of coffee, tea, books and board games should you have some downtime and just want to chill there or if you don't have time to get coffee before plans/appointment. Would stay here again.

Easy check-in, everything was accurate. Not the best communication.

Private space in a great neighborhood. Easy access to all you need on foot, coffee, wine, even groceries but if you want to go downtown it is only a fasten ride away. Owner made the process quick and easy.

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.
