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!
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!
The cottage was as described and very clean, in excellent condition. The location is very convenient to downtown, restaurants, etc. but also quiet. And there is enough room to relax and hang out.
My wife and I had a wonderful time in Austin, and much in due part to the accomodations of Joe and Bella's cottage. It was extremely clean, my wife said it was cute, and a great location. They turned on the heater for us before we arrived in Austin because it was really cold outside. They were gracious hosts, and the property was quiet and centrally located. I would recommend this cottage to all. We have been to Austin numerous times before, and have stayed in many places, but we will forever be staying at Joe and Bella's as long as they will ever have us! Thanks Joe and Bella!
This was a great experience right from the start. Before leaving home we received a comprehensive and clear package of information about the cottage and the area.
Upon arrival, the cottage was easily accessed and immaculate. Everything worked great, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was completely stocked with unusually plush towels.
We did have a question upon arrival and Joe responded immediately.
We would definitely want to stay here again.
This is a sweet little cottage for one or two people who want to be close to one of the coolest parts of Austin.
Thanks Joe and Bella
Loved our stay in their very comfortable cottage. We were in Austin on business, so it was a perfect situation to be able to have a kitchenette and do our work.
Bella was very sweet in making sure we had all that we needed.
I highly recommend staying at this cottage. The place is very clean, organized, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Also, it is within walking distance to the main attractions in Austin.
Overall, a great experience. Thank you Joe & Bella.
Had an absolute amazing time in Austin. Couldnt have asked for a better place to stay for a long weekend. Joe and Bella's property was immaculate. It had everything you would need and more.
My week-long stay was perfect! The accommodations are beautifully maintained, and I slept like a baby! I have already re-booked for my next trip to Austin- I enjoyed it that much! Thanks Joe & Bella!
