I am from Alaska, I enjoy running and being outdoors! I am a nanny of 4 kiddo's and love every minute of it (most days!) I am very environmentally conscious and encourage guests to be so as well :)
Katje's place was awesome! Every amenity we could have needed. Katje was out of town when we stayed but she put us in contact with her friend and her mom so it was no problem getting in touch. Me and a few friends stayed and it was pretty close to downtown! Katje left little notes all around and it was a super friendly atmosphere. Also it smelled like maple syrup.
awesome place for sxsw - highly recommended! katje was not available however the house was very lovely
Great central location. A very short drive into downtown. Cute apartment with plenty of character. Responsive host. Hope to book again.
I cannot say enough good things about Katje and her apartment. We had to find a place for my 17 year old daughter Lea to stay in Austin for 4 weeks on very short notice and with fairly specific requirements and Katje's Cottage fit the bill perfectly. The room was cute and clean and Katje was a fun yet responsible roommate for my daughter. The apartment was directly on the bus route my daughter needed to get herself to UT every day, with the bus stop right across the street. It could not have been more convenient. Katje was extremely helpful getting Lea aquainted with the neighborhood, shopping, etc. She was also very generous in letting me, mom, stay for two long weekends over the course of the summer. When Lea had the opportunity to extend her lab internship for an additional month, fortunately the apartment was available and Katje accomodated the change with no problems at all.
I would highly recommend Katje's Cottage to anyone looking for a comfortable, convenient place to stay in Austin. You'll enjoy the quietness of the leafy suburbs with the convenience of being just a 10 minute bus ride from downtown and UT. Lea is on her way home as I write this and is already looking forward to her next trip to Austin where she now has not only a reliable place to stay but a good friend.
A++++++++++ Thanks Katje !!!!
We had a great Memorial Day weekend. Katje was a wonderful and helpful host. The apt was pretty plain but super clean and comfortable.
Great location. Katje is helpful, friendly and a great hostess. Comfortable bed!
Great location! The condo is well located for either downtown Austin or Town Lake activities. Pleasure to deal with the Host. Thanks you
Katje is an excellent hostess! She made my trip very comfortable. Beautiful neighborhood, great room, excellent coffee! Highly recommended!
Having never been to Austin, I had no idea what to expect. Katje was helpful getting me to her apartment. Once there I found a comfortable home to call my own for a few days. The neighborhood is heavily wooded residential with a close walk or drive to west Lynn shops and restaurants, and a stones throw from a little park. The best thing in my opinion is her proximity to town lake and downtown. I could literally cross one street and walk or run on a path system to and around the lake, without crossing any other streets, for hours.
I am going to miss the fun and relaxing time I had in Austin. Katje is a great and , thoughtful roommate whom I am glad to have had a chance to stay with. If you are lucky, you might even get a chance to meet Cadence.
Cozy little apartment nestled in tree tops. Katj was a lovely hostess. ...comfy"digs"
Katje and her brother were friendly, tidy guests. She is also a host so knows the ropes of airbnb! We would host her again anytime.
Did not have chance to meet them.
Our guest was actually Darlene, Katje's mother,.She was a wonderful thoughtful guest,who is welcome here any time!!
Katje and her mom were sweet, friendly, considerate guests. It was fun meeting a fellow host. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your Northwest adventure!
