Kick back on the porch, under the shade of century-old trees, of this cute and cozy cottage. The welcoming interior offers a rustic, functional ambiance with retro touches like the antique chest in the bedroom or the kitchen's red premium refrigerator. Guests experience an optimized comfort for any season with the newly installed mini-split cooling/heating system.
“We love walking straight from our front door to the best restaurants, bars, and venues in Austin.”
– Melissa, your host

I work in education and my husband is a psychologist. We love hiking, cooking, swimming, exploring the awesome events and restaurants in Austin, and traveling around the world. When we're at home, you'd most likely find Dave either planning a wilderness retreat for Veterans or getting his hands dirty in the yard. I'd be reading a book or making homemade ice cream. We have spent a lot of time making a space that is comfortable and welcoming for our friends and family and we hope our airbnb guests find it that way too!
