About Cathleen McNelis

We are California transplants living in Austin for over 9 years. After many years working as freelancers in the television industry, we packed our bags, moved to Austin and opened our first bakery. 3 stores later, and 3 kids later, we call Austin our home.

Cathleen McNelis purchased this House in 2010

Why Cathleen McNelis chose Rosedale

We chose the area of Rosedale because of it's walkability to restaurants and the great nearby park. It only takes us 10 minutes to get downtown and if by chance we ever want to ride our bikes to a UT football game we can.

What makes this House unique

Tall ceilings and windows, lots of natural light. This shotgun style duplex provides the comfort of a real home in a great desirable location. Great for corporate housing! There is a "bonus" room that features a closet, office space and washer and dryer.

                                                              A good place to be.

                                                              The cottage is clean and centrally located. The owners were very accommodating and provided everything I needed. I had bad luck with a lot of cloudy weather over the three weeks I was there. Luckily I have always been in Austin in sunny weather before this. No worries they had an umbrella there as well.

                                                              Such a great house in a great location!

                                                              So Comfortable

                                                              Dianne S.

                                                              I stayed in the cottage a month and was very comfortable. Everything I needed was provided. The bed was comfy and the kitchen was great for cooking and dining. The neighborhood was great - safe and very walkable. I highly recommend the cottage.

                                                              Very cozy and great location

                                                              Alex T.

                                                              I highly recommend this spot. The owners are great and the house had everything we needed. Thanks!

                                                              Great bungalow

                                                              Loved staying in Rosedale near our family. House is very comfortable for two adults and a couple of kids. Air conditioners worked well, and were they needed at 100 degrees. Very comfortable king sized bed. Hope to return in the future.

                                                              Nice Place and safe area, a lot of extra touches

                                                              Charles A.

                                                              We really enjoyed our stay and the host was absolutely super

                                                              We traveled to Austin and didn't arrive until 4 AM and she allowed us to do a SUPER EARLY check-in and didn't charge us for the previous day

                                                              its very hard to find a host like that these days

                                                              While sitting on the front porch one day I felt like I was in a real life

                                                              Mayberry RFD type neighborhood

                                                              And there were a lot of extra touches such as a bottle of wine and crackers to great us, plenty of extra paper products and linens and having a washer and dryer was a huge plus

                                                              We will be back!!!


                                                              Rosedale, Austin, TX, USA

                                                              The Rosedale neighborhood is located in north central Austin, Texas. . Ramsey Park is located in the heart of the neighborhood, and has a swimming pool, tennis courts, playgrounds, and picnic areas. There are over 1200 homes in the area, a wide variety of restaurants within easy walking distance, and an extensive network of medical services close at hand (including Seton Hospital. The Rosedale neighborhood began from farm and dairy land in the 1860s. In the 1900s, four florists and nurseries found their home in this area; much of the nursery stock planted during that time remains, as witnessed by the many large trees in the neighborhood. The majority of the homes in the Rosedale area were built during the 1930s and 1940s. There are continually many renovation projects and new construction throughout the neighborhood, which lends a sense of vitality and renewal. The population of the neighborhood is a fabulous blend of young families, single professionals, and original owners who raised their children here and have many tales to tell. Beyond the delightful charm of the area, the Rosedale neighborhood's location makes it one of the most desirable of Austin's neighborhoods. There is a close proximity to the Texas State Capitol, downtown Austin, and the University of Texas at Austin, as well as easy access to the main thoroughfares of the city.
