Less than a block from the city bus line, our garage apartment is vintage with an urban feel.
Hi-speed internet with 1 GIG of connectivity! The cottagecomfortably fits two and is within walking distance to many South Lamar bars and restaurants and Zilker. Outdoor deck and offstreet parking too.
This 1940's garage apartment is located in the heart of South Austin's Zilker neighborhood.
The apartment is full of light. Hardwood floors and doublehung windows are restored but original. The living dining area faces east, and gets great morning sun. It has one bedroom and a bathroom with shower, a full kitchen with a refrigerator, stove and work table so you can cook while you visit (although who wants to when there is so much great food nearby?)
The bathroom is fully remodeled, but the kitchen is vintage, with NO dishwasher. Relive the 1940's and wash those dishes by hand. It has air conditioning and heat, and a screen door to enjoy the outside on good days.
If you need more space, the house that is on the property can also be rented, check vacation rental by owner for info.
The house has flat screen TV, a stereo, and wifi. There is off street parking. If the garden is producing, you can help yourself to tomatoes and veggies!
Interaction with guests
We try to meet our guests upon check-in.
We live nearby and are happy to help with any questions, recommendations, etc. but otherwise we'll leave you alone!
Other things to note
This cottage has a really good vibe. I sometimes just go over there to read and hang out. There's something about being "up" at tree level that lends a new perspective - try it!
I hate rules.......but here goes..............
Please no smoking - we don't want to take your deposit. You can smoke on the patio, just use the ashtray. Texas is in an extreme drought and we don't want a fire.
No parties - this is a quiet neighborhood.
No pets - our other house is pet friendly but we keep this one pet free.
Please respect other guests on your checkout time.
Check out procedures are in the "book" in the cottage.......

We are a couple from Austin, Texas, one a native Austinite and the other a transplant but after 30+ years here....... We travel a lot to Belize, but also love the US and Europe. We especially love sharing our two favorite places in the world, Caye Caulker, Belize and Austin, Texas with our guests; it's funny, but both are really interesting fun cities with lots to do and share the trait of having tons of creative, friendly people. We think that by listing our properties on AirBnB at a competitive but fair rate will hopefully allow others to travel - we think that by traveling we learn to better see ourselves and thus can better know others and understand how we can interact for the common good.
Check out our other Austin short term rental, #402379 on vacation rental by owner if you want more room than our Bluebonnet Cottage on AirBnB and stay with us in this or the other if you are ever in Austin!
