Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our 2nd year staying in your cottage and it's still as wonderful as ever! Excellent communication and very helpful. Great working with you again Kat and we look forward to next year :-) All the best!

  • Great house in a great location! My party of two couples (and our dog) stayed here over New Years. There is construction going on next door, which was a concern upon arrival, but luckily the bedrooms are on the other side of the house and you could hardly hear the construction with the doors closed. The kitchen was fully stocked when we arrived - Kat even bought orange juice, milk and muffins so we would be set for breakfast. Kat was very receptive to inquiries and left us a great list of suggested restaurants, music venues, shopping, etc., many of which are within walking distance of the house. Great place!

  • The SoCo cottage was in a great location -- walking distance from tons of restaurants and boutiques! It was super cute and perfect for our girls' weekend. We would definitely recommend it and stay there again!

  • We had such a great visit in Austin thanks to Kat's great place! A perfect space for family...clean, all the amenities, walk able to so many great places/ south congress and downtown... We would absolutely recommend her place for a wonderful Austin trip!

  • Katherine was a great host to deal with. She communicated really well before our check in and provided me with all the check in information i needed well before we arrived. She was even able to accommodate an early check in. We were in Austin for ACL and this place is perfect for it. It is a 30min walk, or you can walk up to South Congress and get a shuttle or pedi cab in if you can't be bothered walking. It is also a short walk into Downtown and 6th street or a $10 cab ride. It is also located close to bars and restaurants on South Congress Ave a 5min walk away. The house itself is just beautiful and in a lovely neighbourhood. We stayed there with 2 friends and had plenty of space. There is a nice living area with lounge, table, TV and was great to just chill out in. There is kitchen with all modern conveniences and we were able to utilise anything in the cupboards we needed. There is also a nice backyard area where we enjoyed breakfast and also a few drinks. If we ever get back to Austin we will definately be staying here again, we just loved it!

    Response from Kat:

    Thanks, Leisha! We are honored to have had such gracious guests. You all are welcome anytime!

  • Lovely little place. So close to fun shops and restaurants (and food trucks!) on S Congress. We had a conference at the Convention Center and it was super convenient. We caught the bus super easy, but there are very quick response times from taxis too.

  • Katherine's house was perfect for our stay! We had a reunion of sorts in celebration of a friend's engagement. The location is superb for walking in SoCo and downtown is just a short cab ride away. Katherine is super responsive and left one of the most thorough guide on "What to do in Austin" which was really helpful. This is a perfect home if you have a group of 6 or 7.

  • I couldn't have been happier with my experience with Katherine and the house. The place I stayed at was just perfect. It was Katherine that made the whole experience exceptional. Accommodating friendly and professional. Katherine is the best host ever!

  • We had a wonderful time at this cute cottage near South Congress. The place is well taken care of, with an updated modern decor, and very comfortable. We surprised my mother for her birthday and our family stayed here to celebrate. The back patio was perfect for some old friends to come join us—we grilled and had a lovely time back there. The neighborhood can't be beat. We walked to Jo's each morning and grabbed slices from Home Slice pizza for late-night. So great!
