We had no itinerary during our visit to the hill country, so the location of Twin Creeks Cottages was perfectly convenient! Close enough to the main highway in case we needed something for our two small kids, yet far enough to escape the sounds of the big city life. My toddler loved being able to run around freely in the huge back yard, and we all enjoyed watching the longhorns graze across the fence. The house was cozy yet very spacious and inviting. Sue was very helpful and attentive. I wish we could have stayed longer but will definitely be back!

Our family of five stayed in this adorable cottage when in Austin for a wedding. The Taylors (owners) are hospitable, easy to work with, and extremely kind. The house is beautifully decorated and the perfect size for our family with small kids. The beds are very comfortable and we felt like we were at home on vacation. The cottage is located just South of Austin, so it is an easy to hop to Austin or San Marcos areas. We will return to this rental for years to come.

This place was such a treat for us. We frequently use AirBNB for our short excursions but since we were so last minute for a holiday weekend, all the good places were taken! Fortunately we remembered FlipKey and were so happily surprices this cute place hadn't been snagged up yet!
Just 20 minutes out from downtown Austin, but Twin Creeks Cottage lives like a small farmhouse in Manchaca. We arrived and Sue was watering the plants outside. She was so helpful giving us food recommendations and even left win and cheese and crackers on the table!
Would definitely recommend. It's a very unique way to experience Austin!
Excellent accommodations, older home with all brand new remodel and appliances. Felt like we were out in the country, but only a few minutes from down town Austin, great place great people.
Comfortable, attractive home on a big lot just south of Austin. Fully stocked kitchen. The owners made sure we had all we needed for a weekend of entertaining. Friends and former colleagues from the days we lived in Austin and San Marcos gathered on Friday evening. Great patio for a Spring dinner outside. Saturday a quick drive to the Wildflower farms near Fredricksburg and Tapas for dinner in Dripping Springs. Sunday celebrating Easter with an Easter egg hunt in the large yard for grandchildren, an Easter feast for all the family and surprising everyone with a visit from the herd of Texas Longhorn cattle in the field next door. Monday trip into Austin and then collapsing on the couch in the lovely sunroom to watch basketball. We loved every minute of our stay and our guests were getting info for how to book the house for summer visitors it felt like home. After 18 years of being gone from Austin we loved having this space to entertain all of those who have hosted our visits over the years. And we thank our hosts for anticipating all of our needs so that our weekend was a great success. It couldn't have been better.
