"We are a couple who regularly visit our daughter at the University of Texas at Austin. We usually stay with her, but this time we wanted to be nearby, but on our own. The location was perfect for us and from our first contact with the owner, Deirdre, we were delighted with her welcoming and helpful efforts to accommodate us in every way from start to finish. Although she was away during our stay, without once meeting, we felt very personally looked-after with prompt and caring attention. Thanks, Deirdre!
We were so pleased to arrive and find that every detail was just as advertised! It was cosy, more comfortable than we would have thought possible, suited in every way to our needs, neat as a pin and twice as clean (and one of us is a shameless clean-freak!) And what fun to have a lovely private and beautifully manicured outdoor area to step right out the door into. Sitting at the shaded patio table with a freshly brewed morning coffee was a treat even when the mornings were hot, as well as early in the evening when the fencing blocked the sun at the time of year.
The neighbourhood is really lovely, very quiet residential, but short walks and/or drives to every convenience (again just as advertised) including U.T., and beautiful downtown Austin, and easy access in every direction to explore further afield.
One of our favourite aspects of the cottage was that we were able to put away all our travelling paraphernalia (we explored North America by car for a couple of weeks before arriving). Everything fit into the large closet, kitchen cupboards, and large dresser, so that we really felt we were 'at home' after a couple of hours of settling in.
We could go on about every little detail in the same glowing terms and we definitely hope to stay here again."
