Beautiful place to stay in Austin
Beautiful place to stay in Austin
I stayed here during the interactive days of SxSW in March 2011. Deirdre helped me find a great place to stay at the very last minute. I really appreciated her renting this cottage to me. It is a peaceful and quiet house. It is very clean and the backyard is the perfect place for an early morning breakfast. The kitchen was just right for cooking quick meals. Deirdre had several thoughtful touches - extra soap and shampoo, hair dryer - and had great advice about what do to and see in town. The bed was extremely comfortable and I loved the clean lines and simple decor of the bedroom. I walked to a grocery store for a few staples and there are bus stops close by, if you don't have a car (which I didn't). The neighborhood is residential and felt quite safe. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed in Deirdre's cottage for several weeks while some remodeling work was being completed in my apartment. Whether you're staying for a short or long term, the cottage is a wonderful place to stay. It's located in a great, quiet neighborhood but has convenient access to Mopac, one of the major ring roads around Austin, so you're only 10 minutes from downtown by car. The cottage itself is nicely furnished and was a very comfortable and cozy place to stay. And to top it all off, Deirdre is a wonderful host!

It's called the Cheery Cottage. I call it Sunny. The windows across the back of the house brought light into every room. The location was convenient to the livable part of Austin with easy access to MoPAC. But here's what you really want to know: quiet, comfy, open, quaint, simple, safe, a real neighborhood experience.

Owner response: I agree enough that I renamed this home the "sunny" cottage. Thank you and please come back soon!
We had a fantastic stay here! This was my first HomeAway experience and it was a great one. A group of 5 of us came from all over the states to meet up for ACL and we couldn't have had a more welcoming host in Deirdre. The home was very well kept, clean and stocked with clean linens and towels. Plenty of space, and way better than any hotel experience I could ever imagine. Next time I travel down to Austin with a small group I will definitely be staying here again.
