I was in town for work and this studio was perfect since I was not eating in there at all. The bed was comfortable and more important the place was clean. I got carrots to share with the resident donkeys too!

This was a perfect cottage for our getaway / aniversery. Clean and quiet, except for the trains,which we didn't mind a bit.
Plenty of restaurants within walking distance and a short drive to parks and downtown.
We will definitely book this Cottage again, and recommend it for anyone looking for a nice getaway.

Trains are no joke. There was probably a train going by every half hour to hour all day and night. Also, the bed was a bit smaller than I was expecting. Definitely not queen size. It was easy to get to and lots of good stuff is around. Just know that you will probably be waking up every night to super loud trains rumbling right outside.

First off, holy cow, you would never know you were smack dab in the middle of the perfect location in downtown Austin. You feel perfectly alone when you want to in this cute little spot but can take a quick walk down the road and be right in the middle of some of Austin's hot spots. You can't go wrong here. Second, the place was spotless. I can't tell you how awesome it was to kick off my shoes and not feel a single piece of dust. And the swing! And the donkeys! And the garden! I just loved this place. We will definitely be back.

Great Place

We couldn't have asked for a location with more character and charm. It was amazing to see the mini donkeys every time we left and returned. The bed was comfy and the room stayed nice and cool. Everything was clean and the one issue we had was resolved quickly by the team at turnkey.

The location was amazing for everything we love to do in Austin. A hidden gem.

Great location. Easy to get anywhere from there. Everything you need is provided. Super clean. Great atmosphere. Loveable miniature donkeys. Great onsite host.

This studio is just lovely! The grounds are charming-complete with 2 Donkeys! Everything went smoothly and we felt quite welcome. The only thing I would mention to those who may be light sleepers is that the property is adjacent to a railroad track and although there is a forested space between them, there is the sound of intermittent freight trains. Never the less we will definitely return!

The perfect space for a busy couple. The home was comfortable and all amenities were provided for. The view was private.

I had a beautiful stay at this Austin gem. It was the perfect retreat setting to be able to escape and relax and enjoy the surroundings. The owner was kind and helpful and I had a peaceful and restful stay. I highly suggest this location if you are in Austin and I will look forward to returning!

We enjoyed the property's space and surroundings. The building itself was pretty cool and I'm a sucker for historical buildings. I travel with a very picky sleeper who is very particular about mattresses and he 100% loved the firm bed.
Although the nearby train came by frequently, it wasn't obtrusive or annoying.
The only issue we had was the plumbing-- the pipes must be very old/narrow because we basically had to plunge every time and not flush any tissue down (mexico-style). Just something to be aware of.
One other note: to get to the front door of the property, there are some old steps (probably original) that were a little hard to negotiate going up/down. We're tall people and are in good shape, so it wasn't a problem. But a petite/elderly person might have had a tough time.

I was unprepared for how beautiful and luxurious the property was, even though it could be considered a rustic property. Everything about it was wonderful, even when I needed help with the TV, coffee maker, and shower. The rental staff were instantly on these minor propblems and had them fixed on the phone and in person, even replacing the showerhead so I did not have to wait. I was happily impressed! The room itsself was so comfortable and well designed and beautiful. Other than the train that goes by, which I found to be a comforting sound, the location was very private and quiet. It is close-by to everthing. All services from coffee houses to drug store are within a short distance. I particularly liked the feeling that I was in the middle of everything, yet secluded from all traffic of the outside world. It has beautiful gardens around it that begs one to sit and linger. It was the best renting experiene I've had. I would go again to this rental in an instant!

The property and building are wonderful. You feel as if you stepped back in time.

The most enchanting place I have ever stayed at! I needed peace and quiet, and time to myself for some Soul searching. When I did decide to leave the Carriage house, so much was within walking distance. It was super clean, I had everything I needed. Even a little bookcase filled and also movies, Direct tv, etc...I will definitely be back! I didn't want to leave...

We loved the setup and unique setting within the city of Austin of this place. Somewhere along our decision process we missed or other's are choosing not to comment about the closeness and loudness of the train. I lost count of the number of times trains blew their horns, gate bells rang, and loud train hookups. It sounded and felt like it was at our front door. We should of known when we noticed earplugs sitting on both night stands. If you can't rest on a vacation getaway - what's the point? We had a 4 day reservation, but decided to leave early due to no sleep. I called Turn Key, disclosed our disarisfaction with the train, and was assured I would get a return phone call from guest services. Still haven't got that phone call. I was hoping for atleast a partial reimbursementt, as we only stayed 1 night. Was a big disappointment as my wife and I tried to get away for a relaxing laid back time.

Great stay, very unique place. Loved it.

The house & location were beautiful. However what I was bothered by was the picture of the house coupled with "studio".. You think you are renting the "Carriage House" while in fact you are only renting the downstairs which is in fact only 1 room TOTAL not a 1 bdr "studio" which would give most ppl the impression that the livingroom & kitchenette were downstairs while the bedroom & bath were upstairs..I can also say that it appeared as if the owners & their entire families lived on the property as well, even the upstairs of the Carriage House. Other than those 2 things, I loved the room, the scenery & the donkeys.

What a great find within a bustling city suburb, just a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to the downtown area. Jut a 2 minute walk are food trucks/bars and even a dry cleaner if you need it like I did for a suit while traveling. The train is very close and can wake you up, but they provide ear plugs if you need them. The unit is very comfy and clean. The property is set back off the street so it feels very private and it's very different than staying in a generic hotel room, we really enjoyed our stay.

My wife and I absolutely loved it.
Catherine V. November 17, 2015
My daughter and I had a wonderful weekend staying at this rustic and quaint property. All amenities were provided and we were very comfortable. It was a big part of our overall wonderful experience in Austin. We will be staying here again.

Was a wonderful location. I just had two things that impacted me. I am 5'2" and had trouble getting in the bed. Could have used a step. 2nd was there was no lighting outside. It was totalling dark outside and I was by myself.

Carriage house and property was charming and inviting! Location was great and very convenient to downtown and to great restuarants on S Congress and S Lamar. The host was very gracious and recommended sites to visit as well as shopping suggestions. Wonderful visit to Austin and would highly recommend Carriage House for an enjoyable and relaxing stay.

I surprised my hubby with this jewel of a studio/carriage house & lush grounds, for an unexpected honeymoon getaway. We both fell in love again! It was both immaculate & spotless. It is a hidden gem in the heart of Austin, with great restaurants & eateries steps away. Quiet & the perfect setting for romance.

This was the BEST short term rental we've ever stayed in(!
Derek R. July 1, 2017
The property was absolutely amazing! Blew me away when we arrived. When you pull and turn the corner it feels like you are in a jungle, beautiful trees and plants everywhere. It was amazing except the train that regularly and very loudly came by throughout the night.
Don K. October 22, 2018
Amazing studio, well equipped, so much character we felt like it was a second honeymoon.
John R. September 8, 2017
fantastic location and place the only negative regarding the place would be the near by loud trains.
