Frank and Margo's cottage is just the loveliest place in the world! A wonderful little house under the trees full of birds and squirrels... close to all amenities and within cycling distance to the campus. Very convenient buses nearby. Everything was provided on my arrival (even food and drinks in the fridge, or shampoo in the bathroom...) and a bicycle! But the very best was Frank and Margo themselves - so kind and helpful and making you feel like a good friend of theirs! I would strongly recommend this lovely place. (I wish I could go back...)

I and my wife stayed there from January, 2019 to May, 2019. The cottage is very cozzy and confortable, very well equipped and located (near buses and shops - especially a supermarket). The neighbourhood can't be better: Hyde Park is a wonderful area in Austin. Frank and Margo are "superhosts", they are always ready to help! We had a lovely time, we highly recommend the cottage!

My husband and I livet at Frank and Margo's cottage for four months and it was a great experience. The accomodations are good and everything is in good condition.

It is even more important to mention the hospitality of our hosts. Frank and Margo was so welcoming and helped settle in very fast and even took us to some of their favorit places in Austin.

This place is highly recommended.

I recently stayed in Austin for an internship. This cottage worked perfectly. It was located in a nice area and wasn't too far from anything that you would need. Frank and Margo were great and more than generous with their hospitality. If I find myself in Austin again for an extended stay, I will be sure to see if the cottage is available.
