We truly enjoyed our stay at Steve's place. Beautiful modern minimalist style cottage nestled behind his house in a quite little neighborhood of Austin. Steve's place was dog friendly, which was great since we planned to take the dogs with us. The place was clean and comfortable. Check in/check out was a breeze. Steve made everything super easy and was great at communicating with us the entire time. We hope to stay here again next time we are in Austin.

Steve hosted my wife and I during Hurricane Harvey for free! We are very grateful to Steve and his family for accommodating us in our time of need. Even if we were visiting Austin just for vacation I'd still recommend his home. He was very kind and had a sparkling clean and modern backyard bungalow. The place was quiet and secluded, just what we needed to unwind from the chaos of the storm. We will be forever grateful to Steve and his family. Many thanks!

This Austin cottage is cozy, cute, clean & comfortable. More importantly, Steve and his family and the most wonderful hosts! Steve opened his home to us free of charge during our evacuation of Hurricane Harvey. Their kind hearts allowed us to relax during what could have been a very stressful time away from home. We will forever be grateful for such a wonderful experience! Our hearts are full, and we look forward to coming back to visit soon. Thanks for your generosity, Steve!

Steve is very accommodating and communicative, and the place was perfect for our needs. Quiet, clean, private, and well appointed. We liked the location. We were there during Hurricane Harvey so it was very wet, windy, and rainy, and he went to extra trouble to make sure our entrance walkway was not too wet or puddly. We appreciate him and loved the place. I would recommend it highly to anyone!
