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.

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.

About the owner: Deirdre Earls graduated with Cum Laude honors in Scientific Nutrition and her healthcare career spans nearly thirty years. Having used an imperfect diet instead of chemotherapy to reverse her own disease, now her objective is to use over two decades as a Registered Dietitian to bring the healing power of food to others. A featured speaker for radio and TV, medical professionals, universities and corporations, Deirdre has authored four books selling in a dozen countries. A TV documentary of her recovery, “The Incurables”, airs worldwide. Her private consultations, lectures, and books including 'Your Healing Diet Austin' are designed to help others implement a healing diet anytime and anywhere on the path to remarkable results.
Why the Owner Chose Pemberton Heights:
Why? Luxurious furnishings and the choicest real estate offered at a reasonable price. I own several 1930's cottages in old Austin. For over five years I have loved living in this one. The neighborhood has immediate access to everything I cherish most in Austin. Directly adjacent to the University of Texas and everything it offers, this area is characterized by a canopy of giant oak trees, splendid parks, outstanding food, and fine homes. With no apartment complexes/condos, and no bars nor nighttime commercial activity, a prized detail about this urban neighborhood is its freedom from the noise and traffic found in other areas of Austin's heavy development. Having spent more than two years in Europe, I now need immediate access to the cultural activities, good food, architecture, and craftsmanship found in urban historical areas; this neighborhood delivers all of this in spades. I hope you'll enjoy my cottage as much as I do.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Central Austin's priciest residential real estate area, Pemberton Heights was selected by Town & Country Magazine as a Top 25 Platinum Address for the United States. Spaciousness with 1350 square feet and high comfort. Immediate proximity to UT's cultural and sports events & downtown. Plantation shutters and original hardwood floors throughout. National Register Historic status. Access to Austin's best public schools including Casis Elementary, O Henry Middle School, Austin High. Walking distance to Austin's most popular restaurants, Pease Park, Seton Hospital and The Heart Hospital. Quiet. Five minutes to downtown and flagships for Whole Foods Market and Central Market.
