About The Owner

I have lived in the central Austin area since 1960 graduating from Austin High School and then from the University of Texas with a degree in accounting in 1979. I am a self employed CPA practicing tax, accounting and consulting.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Why The Owner chose Bryker Woods

My house is very unique in that it is an inner Austin dwelling that backs up to the beautiful Shoal Creek greenbelt so it is like a piece of the country right in the middle of one of the most sophisticated cities in the US.

What makes this cottage unique

Completely private and secluded with resident's having their own private deck overlooking the greenbelt yet minutes to downtown, UT and Lake Austin

Great Austin Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were in the Shoal Creek Guesthouse for two weeks with our dog and loved it! Great quiet neighborhood with walkable restaurants, shopping and a supermarket. The owners were available for any questions but the guesthouse is separate so it felt very private. Well stocked for an extended stay. Great value in Austin!

What a great find

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our cat) recently spent three months in this charming guesthouse to escape the Canadian winter. It was perfect.

The house was clean, very tastefully appointed, and importantly, the bed was very comfortable. It was home away from home. The owners are friendly and very helpful, and cheerfully lent me their hand held beater when I needed to whip up some cream for dessert!

The house is in a lovely, quiet area of Austin, but conveniently located a five minute drive to downtown, and close to major highways.

Our stay here exceeded our expectations, and we will most certainly be back.

Just about perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The posted photos here on VRBO do not do this place justice! It's even better than it looks! The owner's were real nice and easy to deal with...very casual. The place was clean, nice, and private, even though it's in the middle of town. Great place for a romantic getaway!

My wife and I just finished our second stay in this wonderful property. The cottage is impeccably furnished, comfortable, and clean. The property is also located in the heart of Austin, close to all of the major downtown attractions. The owners could not have been more helpful, too. A great stay, we can't wait to do it again!

charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed in this wonderful cottage for 2 weeks. We loved it, felt like a home away from home. It was comfortable, spotlessly clean, and the owner was very helpful with anything we needed. There is a living dining area that was perfect to hang out it, flat screen TV,comfy couch,and a nice seperate bedroom. We are outdoor people, so the best part was the large private deck overlooking Shoal Creek. It is very beautiful view and so relaxing to be out there. We have children and grandcildren in Austin, so we come often. We will definitely rent here again and would recommend it to others.
