Great value! The house was updated, clean and in a nice neighborhood. Steve was communicative, nice and very accommodating to some time changes on my end. Highly recommended!

Can't say enough about the space! Sunny, very clean, and just a very cool place. Bikes provided were a great way to explore Austin, not a far ride from Zilker Park, Barton Springs, and great food options. Great little getaway! Hope to go back one day!

Before I had even packed my suitcase to leave Richmond- Steve was checking in and making sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable and easy arrival. The cottage was precisely as listed; sunny, comfortable, and well stocked with the basics. The bikes were great to have access to, and it is a short walk to the bus line that can take you directly into the city. A perfect spot for a stay in this unique city!

This was my second stay at Steve's for business. I come to Austin for business frequently and this place is great. About 5-10 minutes from downtown. Wifi worked great for work and for streaming movies. The place is well supplied with everything you'll need and more. Steve greeted me immediately upon arrival and even offered to help me with my luggage. Couldn't ask for a better host. If you've ever wanted to experiance living in a tiny house, Steve's cottage would be a great place to stay to give it a try. I'll defiantly be retuning.

Steve was a great host and was always available when needed. I loved staying in the cottage and it's perfectly located by the park. I would book a stay here again without hesitation.

Excellent place. Had everything I needed and more. Steve is a gracious host and is easily accessible. Easy check in and check out. Already booked my next stay here in a few weeks when I return to Austin for work.

Absolutely fantastic stay at Steve's cottage. Loved the location as you felt secluded and tucked away while great food and drink was just around the corner. Loved the design of the cottage that is small but definitely maximizes the use of space. Comes with two ACs to ensure you stay nice and cool in the Austin heat. Steve was such a kind host. He helped us with our bags, offered his washing machine for our use, and checked in with us to see how he was doing. Definitely an A+ host! We look forward to our next visit to Austin and will likely rent Steve's cottage out again.

I live in Austin with my amazing son, Sam. Never happier than when I'm hanging out with him, seeing friends, or making and seeing theater. Coming up on 20 years in Austin. I love it here and love introducing new people to its charms.
