Our cozy cottage located in our backyard garden is your own private oasis. Queen bed, hardwood floors, walk-in shower, high-speed internet, and a 1/2 acre lot right outside your door--complete with chickens, goats, bunnies, a duck and the cutest (and feistiest) pot-belly pig in Austin.

The space

This fantastic backyard garden oasis has been completely remodeled and is available for rent by the night. Hardwood floors, AC unit, heater, queen-size bed with a fluffy duvet. Fully equipped bathroom with walk-in shower and a large closet. Small refrigerator and microwave for your convenience. Coffee pot and toaster oven. Free Wi-Fi!

Enjoy a private entrance onto our beautiful 1/2 acre lot. Take in the fresh air while sitting in the Adirondack Chairs right outside your door or spend the day reveling in all that Austin has to offer. We are 3 1/2 miles from downtown Austin and the U.T. campus. There is a bus stop just a short walk up the street. Check-out time is 11:00 am (noon) and check-in time is after 2:00 pm.

No minimum stay. Also available for rent by the month. Please look at calendar carefully as rates are subject to increase during festivals and other high traffic times (SXSW, ACL, F1, etc.) Price increases are reflected on the calendar!

If you have animal allergies, this is NOT the place for you. Please take time to look at the pictures. We have a lot of animals on our property. We think of this as a huge plus, but allergy sufferers will most likely feel otherwise.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to enjoy everything our backyard has to offer. Play with the cats, give treats to the pig, throw the ball to the dogs, sing to the chickens, lounge in the hammock or adirondack chairs.

Interaction with guests

We LOVE to chat with our guests, but also understand when people are looking for a private retreat. We live in the main house and spend a lot of time on our back porch and in the yard. Come talk to us and visit whenever you want. Or ask our girls to sing for you, do a gymnastics routine, or put on a theatrical play. They love the attention!

This place is charming and a wonderful value for a weekday stay in Austin! It is cozy and somewhat eclectic. It is not fancy, but I liked that. We had great fun viewing the animals. The pig is hilarious! The goats like the attention. My wife and I like cats so we really liked the pretty grey one. Even with all the animals, we were never disturbed by them making too much noise or bothering us in any way. So if you are not interested in the animals, I wouldn't let them deter you from staying here. Parking at the church was not a problem. The congregants were friendly and they never complained about us parking there. The area seemed safe. Others have mentioned the place only has one A/C window unit in it. It cooled fine while we were there and the daytime temperatures were in the low 90's. I have no idea whether it would handle Austin's 100 degree summer days. The place is well-shaded, though, which is definitely a plus. We never planned to cook any meals so we were not concerned with not having a kitchen. I would definitely stay here again. It is much better than a hotel. We had a wonderful visit! I believe the week end rate is much higher. If I were staying over a weekend, I would probably search a little more for places with additional amenities before booking at the higher price point.

The garden cottage was the perfect place for a weekend getaway for my husband and I. We were able to get to restaurants and bars with about a 10-15 minute drive. The cottage is adorable and the backyard so charming! We would defiantly love to stay again the next time we’re in Austin!

My husband and I had a great 3-night stay in the cozy cabin. We had so much fun exploring Austin that we didn't get to hang out too much, but we LOVED the animals and overall atmosphere. Will definitely stay here next time we're in Austin!

Our stay with Marcella was great! We would highly recommend staying here. The accommodations were very comfortable and the place was eclectic and fun! The farm and setup of the backyard was really neat along with the decor of the cottage, they made for a whimsical trip. The location was great too!

I loved the cottage! It was exactly as pictured- adorable, cozy, and spotless. I was only there for a quick night, but check in/out couldn't have been easier and Marcella was super quick with her communication. I would recommend this without hesitation and hope to stay there again myself!
