We just loved this place sooooo much. The host was super friendly and had provided everything you could possible need in the house. It's a really cute place and in fact really romantic for a couple. Great location too.

We could not have asked for a better location and Chris was great! My boyfriend and I had never been to Austin, so upon our arrival Chris provided us with a personal tour, pointing out all the things to do in the area and best restaurants. We were within walking distance to almost everything we wanted to do and see, and could not have asked for a better host!

Such a cool place to stay. If you could fashion the state of Texas into a tiny house, this would be it. Had a great time and Chris is a wonderful host!

Chris' cottage is conviently located to coffee shops, restaurants and an active night scene, but still offers a peaceful stay in a very cool space that has a unique charm with a cozy presence. Definitely a recommendation to fellow travelers

We were looking for an oasis of calm after spending our days at a very busy international beard competition--and this place was all that and some. Chris was very responsive to any needs that arose (very few did). The space was charming and spacious, and--most importantly--the bed was *incredibly* comfortable. We loved the location's proximity to delicious restaurants and public transportation. I highly recommend staying here!

Unique furnishings, amazing location, and an Alexa! Unfortunately, the clawfoot tub didn't work as a tub during my stay, but hopefully this is a quick fix for the next guests.
Chris User ProfileChris is a superhost.
Response from Chris:
Hello Sarah. We are located next door or just a text or phone call away. You are the only guest who could not figure out a standard shower tub. No need for a fix. You also had trouble with the access code and the key.
