About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Downtown is just 3 or 4 minutes away. Yes, you can walk but biking/bus/cab/car is probably more likely.

The best part about this cottage (on the lovely half acre property we call Verde Camp) is the old Austin feel that's getting harder and harder to find in downtown Austin. The houses on this half acre of land dates back to the 1930's. The cottages have recently been remodeled inside and out with new plumbing, walls, wiring, and paint.

The birds chirp in the morning; the squirrels dance in the shady canopy from two 200 year-old oak trees; church bells can be heard in the distance at noon. It's a pretty nice spot year round.

Shopping:
However, this area is happening. Not 3 blocks away is what NPR recently called 'the coolest street in America' (for better or for worse! Ha). Find some vintage vinyl; Peruse the best thrift shops; A straight razor shave; Folk art galleries; or find a cool old sign.

Restaurants / Cafes / Bars:
Continental Club is 2 1/2 blocks away. The best of the best restaurants. Lots of veggie options, live music, clubs, Art houses, theater.
Walk or bike to Lady Bird Lake (Town Lake) and get some exercise. Hit downtown, 6th Street, UT Longhorn games, kayaking/canoeing, and you know you want some barbecue and a beer. It's all just minutes away.

Catch the bus or rent a bike or scooter to almost anywhere. Or, hey just chill. Watch movies via the Roku player on the 37' flat screen. Use the WiFi to surf the web. Get some work done. Rest, relax, get a massage, take a walk, order some food. Whatever. Once you stay, I know you'll come back.

Restrictions:
- Noise. We just ask that you be respectful. We have a 'No Noise' policy that is strictly enforced after 10 PM. Loud or obnoxious behavior will not be tolerated.
- No Smoking in the house.

We allow well behaved dogs with pet fee. We do have a dog run on the property, but the property is not fully fenced.
