A beautiful, private space in the best part of town, with helpful, laid-back and unintrusive hosts - an absolute gem.
We had a great stay at Joanne's cottage. Joanne and Larry were nice hosts with good tips about how to get around the area and what to do in Austin. The location was perfect since it is only a 15 minute walk to downtown but right there where all the food stands and nice boutiques and diners are (South Congress is a one minute walk). Everything we needed was in the room, including water, coffee, tea, chocolate and handy items such as shampoo etc. Overall I would most certainly recommend this nice cottage for any stay in Austin.
We had a great experience at Joanne's cottage. It was a very nice private room and bathroom, clean comfortable and inviting. And in a great location as well. Joanne and her husband were very hospitable and we would recommend them to any traveler.
Very nice little cottage in a fun neighborhood. We rented for F1 weekend and walked from the cottage to the shuttle bus from convention center to the track. About 25 minutes. Plenty of restaurants, food trailers within a block or two of the cottage. Joanne is very nice and welcoming. Cottage has wi-fi, whucj was very handy. We would rent again.
Joanne's place in Austin is perfect. Located in a very convenient spot near all of the action yet in a quiet neighborhood. The cottage itself works well for a couple who enjoy a nice comfy place to sleep and relax. I would definitely recommend It to anyone who wants to experience all that Austin has to offer.
Joanne and Larry were wonderful hosts. The room, located in a separate building behind the main house, was private, clean, and comfortable. The location is fantastic with many wonderful shops, bars, and restaurants within walking distance. The room also came with many nice touches--coffee, tea, toothpaste, nice shower gel--that elevated the experience. I highly recommend staying here!!!
Our first experience with Airbnb and we had a blast. Truly charming cottage in the perfect South Congress location. Joanne and her husband were great hosts - highly recommended!
We enjoyed our stay at Joanne's cottage, this was a perfect arrangement for us as it was private, quiet, and had a peaceful air. Joanne was very accomodating surrounding our arrival and departure as well as during our stay. The cottage was clean and very cute, also conveniently located. We would plan to stay at Joanne's place again when we next visit Austin...the rain did not detour us from any of our plans. Thanks Joanne, nice meeting you and your husband! Valerie and Michael
Joanne's cottage is wonderful. Great location, very comfortable, and super easy. Will definitely stay here again. Loved it.
We really enjoyed the privacy and how quiet the backyard cottage was. Joanne and her husband were very hospitable. We would definitely stay there again.
I stayed two nights in Joanne's delightful cottage, just a stone's throw from South Congress yet in a surprisingly quiet neighborhood. All of the amenities and comforts are just as Joanne describes here: new and of the highest quality. A wonderful retreat, thankfully without a television to disturb the space. The backyard is lovely, nicer than what is shown in the pictures. I highly recommend it! I've known Joanne for many years. She has the cheerfulness and integrity you hope for in a host!
