Our stay was great. This is a perfect location and close to everything on S Congress and S 1st. The cottage was perfect for my husband and me.

Chris is the ultimate host. Anyone would be lucky to stay here. Austin is full of hospitality and the bungalow was the perfect way to visit the city. Make sure to check out all the great eats so close by.

Great location, cute & comfortable place. Very cool decor. Interactions with host felt a bit intrusive to us (we tend to like more space & privacy), although friendly overall & I'm sure just trying to be helpful.

Response from Chris:
Hello Caley. Sorry you didn't like airbnb. Maybe a hotel in San Antonio will be a better match for you and your mother. 98% of our guests enjoy their visit here, especially the new mattresses and new cowhide leather love seats.

5 stars all around. Well designed, interesting space in a great location. Comfortable, clean bed with great pillows. Big bathroom and great water pressure in the shower. Many modern upgrades. And icing on top of the cake is how hospitable and fantastic Chris is as a host. Would definitely stay here again.
