The space

Nestled in the very back of our backyard amid the cacti and bamboo, this sun-filled 1 bdrm, 1 bath cottage comfortably fits two. Enjoy spitting-distance access to UT, downtown Austin, I-35 and the MetroRail, as well as the restaurants, coffee shops, food trailers and parks of the eclectic Eastside Cherrywood neighborhood. Or just laze about on our hammock.

It's accessible through our driveway or a gate on the other side of our yard, giving you complete privacy to you come and go as you like. The queen-sized Murphy bed folds up to give even more space. Other features include a lots of window space with blinds, a large desk/table, 24/7 WIFI access, and a mini-fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. And of course, AC (as well as heat for the one week of the year it's cold here).

This was such a cool place to stay! Great location, plenty of privacy, and Steve provided everything we needed. Even further, he provided breakfast for us! Steve allowed us to bring our two labs who were able to explore his spacious backyard. Would recommend Steve to anyone :)

We had a super experience. The space is small, but designed with interesting touches and a cozy vibe. Lots of toiletries provided, which impressed us a lot. There wasn’t curtains/ blinds on some windows, so if privacy is at the top of your list, be aware of that. The space is in …

Steve's place is truly a gem. Far exceeds the expectations of a typical stay. The Ritz in Seoul was less comfortable than this.
