Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Joe and Bella's cottage exceeded my expectations! Their place was clean, comfortable and quiet, and most importantly very conveniently located to everything that Austin has to offer! Joe and Bella were very responsive and gave very clear directions upon reservation - I had no trouble checking in or out - everything was seamless. The cottage was also located close to the Austin International airport, which was great since I had a very early morning flight. I will definitely stay again on my next trip to Austin. Thanks Joe and Bella!

  • My fiance and I had a great experience staying at Joe and Bella's. It's a gorgeous cottage nestled in a quiet yard, within a close walk or drive to tons of great Austin treats. Our hosts included lots of recommendations for near-by places to go and things to eat in their welcome packet, and boy were they spot on! If we ever return to Austin, we will definitely be staying at Joe and Bella's.

  • Joe & Bella's cottage is a little slice of Heaven in Texas. Stumbled upon the listing, contacted them and everything was smooth sailing afterwards. Once arriving in Austin, I called to confirm that we were in town. After talking to Bella, I wanted to sit on the cottage front porch and be friends. We unlocked the door to the cottage and were greeted with the scent of fresh laundry. I feel like the pictures don't do this place justice. It's so cozy and comfortable. Just the perfect space for the two of us. It truly felt like we were returning "Home" every night. I may be going overboard, but I truly can't say enough nice things about the hosts or their adorable cottage.

  • The SoCo cottage was perfect in every way. It was just like the photos and very clean. We enjoyed our stay in Austin immensely. I would however, recommend a car as it was not really walking distance to the "cool" part of South Congress.

  • My fiance and I had a wonderful time at the SoCo cottage. Very convenient location with lots of privacy. We will definitely be back on our next trip!

  • Joe and Bella were very professional hosts. The property was very clean and easy to find. We were able to book with ease and they responded in a timely manner. It was nice to have a fully equipped kitchen especially if you are staying for a while. The property was located in the perfect place. Just a few minutes away from downtown Austin and located right off South Congress. We had no problem checking in or out. The property was quiet so we were able to get a good nights rest every night. When we come back to Austin, we will definitely be staying at one of Joe and Bella's properties! Thanks!!

  • A perfect hideaway - from the fuzz and buzz of SXSW. We enjoyed staying at Joes & Bella's. Every evening or night when we drove home from the crazy and in every way over loaded down down scenery- we felt a great relief and joy when 'checking in' at our little home away from home. We were sitting on the porch having our night cap, discussion the events of the day and finally we could lay our head on the very comfortable pillow in the very comfortable quality bed . It was like being an Austinites for a week. The cottage is nicely decorated, very clean, and Bella & Joe are perfect hosts in every way. Thanks Bella, for great talks during the week and for your kindness. We will look forward to return which we hopefully will next year

    March 2014
  • Thank you for the comfortable accommodations in Austin! Your attention to detail made sure we lacked nothing for the three days we stayed in a cottage. We definitely recommended you to our relatives there in Austin for their future visitors!

    March 2014
  • Had wonderful stay with Joe and Bella. Everything was better than
    We expected. So close to everything that we do on our visits. 1st street-Lamar Blvd- SOCO party spots and dinner choices. Great private parking and very secure areas. Will be our choice to stay on
    All of our return trips. You can not pick a better spot for your next stay. Johnny and Kelly

  • This is a wonderful place to stay in Austin! Joe and Bella were very communicative through the whole process, the welcome packet is very clear, and the space itself is great!

    My husband and I stayed here while in Austin for a wedding and I couldn't have been happier. The cottage is quiet, private, clean, and spacious for 2 people. It is literally minutes to drive downtown, and even faster to the middle of the SoCo area, which is awesome!! You get the benefits of staying near downtown, but it's still quiet enough to hear the birds. The dedicated parking space is awesome, and just down the block is Crow Bar, an awesome place for drinks.

    I would absolutely stay here again next time I'm in Austin!
