The Space

Location, location, location...our place is the best of both worlds, a beautiful home in a charming neighborhood filled with character and tree lined streets where you can walk to so many restaurants bars and shops, but are just minutes from all the action downtown.

Enjoy your stay in this lovely cottage in the Zilker neighborhood. You are just a few minutes from plus Zilker Park, Barton Springs, the Hike and Bike trail are right here. Easy access to downtown, drive or cab in 5 minutes. Bus stop is half a block away, they run all day.

The house has front porch as well as a back deck and yard, perfect for entertaining or just relaxing. Two bedrooms, one king size bed, the other a queen and I provide a new queen size air mattress for extra guests (maximum is 6), plus there are two full (email hidden)zy living room, everything you would need in the kitchen. Includes all the amenities; enjoy the flat screen, WiFi throughout the house, fresh linens, coffee, milk, tea to get you started and ample off street parking. I will leave you recommendations for food and drink and fun things to do, plus the directions you will need to get here and there.

Look forward to welcoming you to Austin, one of the coolest and friendliest town's in Texas and the world!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This house was perfect for our family trip to Austin. My brother and sister live with roommates, so this provided us a private, central location to relax and spend time together. House was well kept and close to several restaurants. Easy to get to and the check in/out procedure was a breeze. Would definitely recommend!

  • Jennifer's house was lovely - very clean and the beds were sooooo comfortable. Would love to stay here next time I am in Austin. 5 stars!

  • Our stay at the Zilker Cottage was exactly what we were looking for! A great house to share with friends, conveniently located near Zilker Park- the venue for a wedding we were attending. The house was adorable and well appointed with the things you need (salt and pepper, olive oil, napkins, beach towels- things that are sometimes missing if you stay in a rental property that no one actually lives in). The master bedroom and bathroom were beautiful and the upstairs loft bedroom was very charming with a very comfortable bed! We had someone staying in the office with the air mattress and that room does have less privacy if you're looking for 3 private bedrooms (the stairs to the loft bedroom are in the office and it has a glass door). But that worked out well and was not a big deal for our group of close friends. The couch was huge and comfortable, helping to make our stay very comfortable. We also had a chance to meet Jennifer when we got the key and she was absolutely great. She had a lot of helpful information about the neighborhood, including a mention of the food truck park down the street that had great tasty food! Thanks Jennifer, everything was great!

  • In the very beginning, Jennifer put a first time Airbnb user at ease. Her home and space could not have been more accommodating. A perfect location that is close to everything and in a quiet neighborhood. It was such a pleasurable experience with our entire family. We all met for a little celebration and to catch up on our hectic lives. I know we would not have had the same in a hotel.
    I have such gratitude for Jennifer for sharing her sanctuary .

  • The house was clean, comfortable, spacious and homely. We were staying for sxsw and it was a 30 min walk into downtown or $10 cab, which suited us fine to be away from the main hustle. The warm cookies on arrival were a lovely touch, as well as milk & eggs in the fridge for the morning. Jennifer was always very pleasant to talk to, answered any questions we had promptly and went out of her way to make our time in Austin as great as possible. Would happily stay here again!

  • The Zilker cottage was wonderful. It had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. It's in a prime location. Restaurants and cafes are within walking distance. And downtown is either a short drive or cab ride away. I loved drinking tea in the sun-filled kitchen. Definitely a good stay.

  • WOW!!! This place is beautifully appointed with out of town traveler's needs in mind. The location is also excellent. If I could give 10 stars I would. Jennifer is an excellent and responsive host. 100% recommended.

  • The house was just perfect. Clean, well kept and lived in. Nice back yard and kitchen. Beautiful art everywhere and could have accommodated more people easily. Great location and easy to book and contact the host. Thanks Jennifer!
