Currently, Deep Eddy is not available for rentals over 1 week. The Deep Eddy Cottage is a 1946 bungalow that has been in my family since it was built. It's a rare one bedroom house with beautiful hardwood floors, fully equipped kitchen with new 5 burner stove, new Bosch dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, and washer and dryer. It's a great place to get work done too with Grande fiber 1 gig internet. The bedroom has a king sized bed, the dining area has been turned into a sleeping alcove with a queen size innerspring futon. In addition, there is a twin daybed in the ample living room.

About Martha Quinn
I love to travel and have done more than my fair share. I know that what makes a great trip great, is being able to really dig in and live like a native. That's what's so great about staying at a vacation rental instead of a hotel: you get to become a part of the place you're visiting, really try it on and see how it suits you. Next to traveling, I love hosting and entertaining. Offering Deep Eddy cottage allows me to share something very special with folks who like to travel the way I do.
Why Martha Quinn chose Tarrytown
This little house is very special to me and my family. It was my parents honeymoon cottage when they married at the end of WWII and my father was studying pharmacy at the University of Texas. When he finished and they moved to East Texas, they couldn't bear to give it up. And so it saw all four of their children through UT one after the other. In between, they offered it as rental property. I'm the youngest and the only one to settle in Austin, and my father left it to me when he passed away in 1989. I lived in the house for about 20 years. The wonderful thing about having it as a vacation rental, is that I get to use it again from time to time!
What makes this House unique
I can tell you, there is no better location for experiencing the best of Austin. You are 5 minutes to downtown by car, and a 5 minute walk to Deep Eddy Pool or the hike and bike trail around Lady Bird Lake. It's a neighborhood where people still sit on their front porches and will happily engage you in conversation if you're feeling chatty, and just as happily let you have your privacy if that's your preference. It's walkable! There are restaurants, a grocery store, multiple convenience stores, dry cleaners, and natural beauty all within walking distance. Walkability is a bit rare in Austin, but Deep Eddy has it.

Wonderful bungalow, easy access to downtown
My wife and I stayed here in early June and the house is perfect. Despite 100 degree temps the house stayed comfortably cool, offstreet parking is a much appreciated feature and for the two of us the location is perfect. We walked across the street to Deep Eddy Pool every day, ate at "Pool Burger" more than once, and accessed the trail around town lake, all within walking distance. When the weather is nice its an easy walk along the trail to downtown without ever experiencing Austin traffic.
Honestly, we would have probably settled down here an never left if we didn't have to.
Cozy and Comfortable in a Great Neighborhood
We loved our stay at Deep Eddy. It is really comfortable, and we were pleasantly surprised to find the actual house much nicer and roomier than the pictures make it seem. Martha was easy to work with and prompt to respond to any questions. We'll definitely be back!
Enjoyed our stay!
House was in good shape. Great location - only a 5-10 minute car ride to downtown. Martha was very accommodating - A/C wasn't working and she had someone come out and fix it the day we were arriving. Would definitely recommend staying here and will stay here again when we come back!
Perfect, quaint home!
We were in town for our daughter's graduation from UT, and Martha's precious, little bungalow had everything we needed. Very clean and comfortable, and convenient location. Will definitely stay here again! Wish we'd found it sooner!
Exactly what was needed. Definitely feels like a house, not a rental. Perfectly located. Excellent communication from owner.
The cottage is warm and cozy. It was perfect for our trip.
Thank you so much! The cottage itself is lovely and charming. Very cozy and very much a home away from home. The attention to detail was above and beyond. It was great to be able to take a 10 minute Uber to the conference then be able to escape back to a quiet place to decompress. The bed is perfection. We slept better than we do at home!
We had an amazing time and would absolutely book again. Thank you for everything, Martha. We tried to leave it as tidy as possible for you.
So wonderful to hear! I try to give everyone that "home away from home" experience.
*I do appreciate your tidying up when you checked out! Makes it so much easier to give the next guest the same attention and experience.
