Property description

Whether you are visiting for work, play or both, my one bedroom, one bath home can accommodate all your needs. Cozy (750 sqft) and affordable, this space is a full-time vacation rental, free of personal clutter and available for last-minute bookings. Faux wood floors and tile throughout, neutral colors and modern design with a shabby chic feel. The bedroom has a queen bed with down comforter and memory foam mattress and offers direct access to your own private zen garden for outdoor relaxing. Includes TV with DVD player, wireless Internet, iPod speakers, extra towels and linens, and kitchen with electric stove. The space hospitably accommodates two, but can cozily accommodate up to four as the couch in the living room converts to a queen sized bed.

My home offers excellent accessibility, located near major highways and the airport and less than two miles east of downtown. Enjoy the best locally owned restaurants, bars, food trailers, and cafes Austin has to offer. The cottage is located in East Austin, which is an economically diverse, older neighborhood, home to recent transplants and long-time residents alike.

The guest house is nestled toward the back of the property. Your home is completely private. Aside from the entrance, which is accessed through a gate attached to the garage, there are no shared spaces. There is a large, very friendly, dog on the property. Her name is Lana. If there are ANY concerns over this, please reach out. I'm more than happy to accommodate.

Bus stops are at the end of the block and Plaza Saltillo, a major metro intersection is less than a mile away. A cab to downtown is a $10.00 ride. Uber and Lift are prevalent. Cars 2 Go, Zip Cars and B-cycles available as well.

This property is licensed by the City of Austin. Special event considerations: check calendar for rates, 
strict cancellation policy enforced, 
three night minimum stay for ACL & F1, 
four night minimum stay for SXSW

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Howdy! I grew up in a small town in Texas, moved out to California then caught the traveling bug. I've spent significant time in Spain, Thailand and South America as well as some local travel. Of course, all good things come to an end, so I settled back in Austin to be closer to family.

Why the Owner Chose East Cesar Chavez:
I chose this beautiful piece of property in East Austin for the cultural aspect as well as the good soil :) All of our local farms are within a few miles radius.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I fell in love with the charm of the cottage-style home as well as the proximity to the funky East Austin bars and cafes. The previous owners had the home for generations and you can feel the positive energy of it.
