Great host. Great cottage; secluded, but close enough to walk to most points of interest in Austin. Chris provided a nice tour of the area and was very accommodating. And his dogs were sweet and well trained. Would definitely stay here again when visiting Austin!

The SoCo Cottage is perfect for exploring Austin. Chris is a fantastic host who knows a lot about the city and the tour he gave us with his cute dogs to show us the nearest restaurants and sights was really helpful. Communication was great. The cottage is super cool and in a great location to local restaurants and bars. We fell in love with the cottage, just like we fell in love with Austin. Our only regret is that we weren't there longer!

Chris was a fantastic host. He's probably the BEST Airbnb host we have ever had. He volunteered to pick us up from the airport and gave us a great tour of Austin with lots of restaurant recommendations. He also recommended a lot of activities and things to do. The cottage was super cool. It's has a cool vintage feel and the whole place had a very authentic Texas vibe. And it comes with a bonus: we got to hang out with Chris' dogs who were so chill and sweet. The cottage comes with plenty of amenities and we especially loved the AC feature as it was about 100 degrees all throughout our stay. Chris provided water in the fridge for us and showed us how to work all the lights and tech in the cottage to make everything as easy as possible for us during our stay. Whenever we are back in Austin it would be our pleasure to stay in Chris' home. We were very lucky to have such an accommodating host and stay in such a lovely home.

Staying here was like staying with family. Chris was willing to help us navigate the area and give us plenty of tips throughout the week. We rode our bikes to yoga, the gym, the local juicery, and all the water activities around town like town lake and Barton springs. Mixing together his friendly pups and Texas charm, you're setting yourself up for a truly Austin experience. Special props for having an Alexa who will play us music and report the daily weather on command, as well as solid movie channels for our night in.
