About Gretchen Smith
I have been honored to live in the exciting and ever changing city of Austin since 1990 and have been enjoying the myriad of cultural festivities, arts and social activism that the capital has to offer! I have a degree in Environmental Science and started a Rain Garden business called Wetlands In Waiting in 2015. My passion is creating beautiful sustainable butterfly gardens that are naturally watered by rainfall!
Gretchen Smith purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Gretchen Smith chose Windsor Park
When I bought this home, I immediately began to plant hardy Texas native plants which attract butterflies and hummingbirds to the yard. The backyard at Nini's is planted with tangerine Esperanza, periwinkle Plumbego, pink and raspberry Salvias, crimson red Crepe Myrtle tree, yellow Four O'clocks, edible red Chile Pequin, and pink and yellow Lantana.
What makes this Cottage unique
Sunrise filtering through the tall trees in the back offers the perfect background for your morning coffee on the back porch... Morning sun can be enjoyed in the bedroom or blocked out by dark curtains. The dining room table can be expanded for an extra large project or family gathering. Setting sunlight illuminates the living room and the study for an enjoyable evening in. A glass of wine in the moonlight in the private bakyard can be the perfect ending to your day!

Cozy & Clean
Nini's is a super sweet cottage with enclosed back yard for the dog to sunbathe! It has all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay in Austin. The neighborhood is quiet and very walk-able. It is close to all the spots you need to go.
Nice cozy cottage
Nice host, central location, EASY TRIP!
Gretchen was so sweet and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. I was traveling with my visually impaired friend and the lighting was great (she can't see without bright light). We enjoyed the local coffee and custom creamers (soy & half/half) provided by our lovely host. Traveling to downtown Congress and more was about 15-20 min driving, so easy! Thanks so much Gretchen!!
Everything you need
We loved our stay here! There were so many little things that were well thought out and perfect for us. The stay was quiet and felt very homey. The backyard is very well secured and was great for our dogs. We would love to spend more time in Austin and would 100% stay here again.
Austin is a mecca of International foods and specialty microbrews, Hill Country wines and local spirit distillaries. Nini's cozy cottage is close to many restaurants including Ethiopian, Salvadorian, Thai, Sushi, Indian, Chinese, Hondoran, Cuban, Southern Down Home and of course, Tex Mex and BBQ. We are close to the Mueller District with HEB grocery store and many stores and restauants. Guests can walk around the block to take a 30 minute busride downtown for a green option leading to the State Capital, museums, the boardwalk and lake trails, and the infamous 6th Street for bars, discos and live music!
