This charming cottage, packed with personality, is tucked away among Pecan shade trees, with a garden for grilling and relaxing and is in a perfect spot for discovering Austin. You even get your own secure, gated parking spot — a rarity in this neighborhood!

Museums, food trucks, art galleries, boutiques, bars & cafes abound within walking or biking distance. Not to mention downtown, just a 1.5 mile walk away.

INSIDE THE COTTAGE

Open the door into a smartly designed, colorful & intuitive studio-style space with plenty of room for two guests.

In the living and sleeping area, a queen bed faces a flat-screen TV and a desk for catching up on email (WiFi is included).

There is an adjacent full kitchen, stocked with pots, pans & dishes. All major appliances are here too, including a dishwasher and a built-in washer/dryer unit for your laundry. Prepare everything from quick snacks to full meals and enjoy them at the dining table for three.

The newly remodeled bathroom boasts a tub/shower combo and a single vanity.

THE LOCATION

It doesn’t get much better than this center-of-the-universe South Austin location!

Before getting in line for brunch at South Congress Cafe, you may want to pick up a cupcake from Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop or a French Macaroon at La Patisserie. Then work off brunch by renting a bike at one of the many rental shops around town.

You’re just 1.5 miles from downtown including SXSW music venues, Austin City Limits, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Auditorium Shores & The Long Center, ZACH Theatre, and lots more.

Within a few blocks of some of the best restaurants in Austin including Alcomar, Sway, Elizabeth Street, and Lenoir.

The food truck craze started right around the corner from our home on South First Street. This “trailer park” is still home to Torchy’s Tacos, a landmark TexMex food trailer and a mighty fine queso maker.

Walk to ABGB, the Continental Club or Guero’s for live music or pick up a local cup ‘o Jo at Jo’s Coffee. For outdoor activities, walk or bike to Lady Bird Lake for boating, kayaking and bike trails or head to Barton Springs for a swim or hike. Remember to bring your camera. You will want to snap a few shots of the local graffiti art around town!

If your plan is to get to know (or rediscover) Austin, this ideally located Bouldin cottage is the place for you!

                                        We loved our little cottage in Austin. Would highly recommend. It's in a great location- close to Congress street and great restaurants and shops as well as music venues. This is a great place for 2 for a long weekend or week stay!

                                        Cute cottage, great location!

                                        The location could not have been more perfect. The parking was off the street and felt very safe. We were minutes away from all of the locations we wanted to visit and the property was spotless and serenely quiet. My girlfriend and I got engaged on this Austin excusrsion, and we'll remember this little cottage for the rest of our lives. It was perfect and we loved it, and would jump at the chance to book it again for our next visit.

                                        A nice stay with a few issues

                                        This was a nice place to spend a long weekend. Thoughtfully stocked, well-designed to maximize space, cute decor, and clean. The private parking was a huge plus. That said, we had a few gripes: The rental confirmation process through Turnkey was frustrating. The tub drained slowly and the smoke detector ran out of batteries and started beeping in the middle of the night (twice!). Though Turnkey's customer service was pleasant and responsive, they weren't able to resolve either issue in the time we were there. Finally, the bedframe was extremely squeaky, waking us up every time we turned over. If these issues were resolved, we'd be happy to return next time we're in Austin!

                                        This was a great place to stay! Parking right next to the door. Extremely walkable to a local library, great restaurants and coffee shops. Bouldin Creek Cafe sells coffee by the bag and they grind it according to your coffee maker. This rental has a French press, a big and a small drip coffee maker AND a Keurig! I used the French press. Well worth it :) Nestled between S. Lamar and 1st St you have so many options for entertainment or just hanging out in the side yard barbecuing. I would definitely recommend this gem!
