There is NO TV in this home. Also, there are two dogs on the property that will occasionally be seen chasing tennis balls in the shared backyard during your stay ☺ They will never be unattended in the backyard.
While the water tank is not shared with the main house, it WILL run out of hot water if you're in the shower for longer than 5-10 minutes (depending on how hot your shower is). Both of us have stayed in the guest house and it hasn't been an issue - but we understand that some people love to preen for 30-40 minutes at a time. Please be aware!

Derek and Nicole are amazing hosts! Kind, helpful down-to-earth. We were in great hands. And, the place is just lovely. It was a real oasis at the end of a long day sight-seeing. The backyard is so fun (and even more fun if you get to chill with the hosts) and the location is within walking distance of the Whip-In - a great spot for beer, music and food. All in all, staying here was one of the best parts of our trip to Austin!
It was a peaceful stay there! Very private and quiet and close distance to SoCo. The fenced in backyard is very zen like and you can build a fire in the outdoor fireplace. The dogs were very friendly and stayed inside. The hosts were very nice. I said hi to them in the backyard by chance but otherwise the place is your own. Inside the cottage was like brand new with a really comfortable queen sized bed. The small refrigerator came stocked with club soda and beer which was unexpected. The expresso machine was awesome!! I would go back again. Its perfect for a single person or couple.
Had a wonderful visit at the lovely cottage, felt luxurious with niceties and all the things you need. Great location and hosts so wonderful leaving a thoughtful note for us on arrival. Will definitely stay there again!
Nicole and Derek were amazing hosts. Their guest house is cozy, balance of creativity and comfort inside - has everything you need and more to enjoy your stay in Austin (we won't mention the little surprises you walk into as well!) The house is easily accessible to anywhere you want to go during your visit, and they'll give you a heads up on great places to go for music, food, etc... (and they indeed were great recommendations). This was our first airbnb experience, but they were open and made you feel comfortable in their home, and were open to socialize along with their dogs in the backyard, but also respect your need for privacy. The highest of recommendations!
Cozy is right! This small guest house is big on smart design and welcoming atmosphere. Great location, gracious hosts. This is what Austin feels like. Who could ask for more?
Derek and Nicole were the best hosts! Nicole told us about the best bars as well. Great location that's close to everything (by car). And the bed is so comfortable!!
This was my first Airbnb experience and I was so pleased. Derek and Nicole's place is very cozy! The bed itself deserves 10 stars. They were very accommodating proving us with everything you'd find at a hotel, but much much better. We loved the bottle of wine and the nice card. I loved how quiet it was on their street as we needed our rest after exploring Austin. The location was perfect. Blocks aways from SoCo which turned out to be one of our favorite neighborhoods, and only a few minutes to downtown and East Austin. We had to stay an extra night due to a flight cancellation and they were very accommodating once again! If we return to Austin, I'd love to stay in this little cozy place again.
Nicole was a great hostess (and makes great cookies). The room had all the touches that made it feel like home. There was coffee and tea available. There were enough utensils and dishes to cook for yourself if you desired. We will definitely consider staying there the next time we are in town.
Derek and Nicole were wonderful hosts for our quick trip to Austin. The house is in such a perfect location for exploring the city. Nicole was extremely fast in communicating with us and making sure we had everything we needed.
The unit is in perfect condition and stylishly decorated. The bed...wow! It's like sleeping on a cloud. We enjoyed our trip to Austin and having such a wonderful place to come home to every night was a great bonus.
If you are thinking about staying with Derek & Nicole - do it! You won't regret your stay with such wonderful hosts.
Due to a very last minute change in plans, I was in dire need of a place to stay in Austin; Nicole & Derek were very quick to respond to my inquiry and opened up their guest house just hours after a previous guest left. They were very sweet and the accomodations were supreme! The guest house is just about a half-mile from South Congress - your gateway to everything Austin has to offer. During my week-long stay, Nicole text a couple times to check-in, but otherwise gave me privacy. What a perfect setup this is and I look forward to sending all my friends their way!
Y'all are the best!
