I had a great time at Jennifer's place. It's exceptionally cozy and the dog and cats will keep you company as well. :) I can recommend her place to everyone and can't wait to be back and discover Austin some more.
Amazingly kind renter. Would totally rent the space again.
Nice little place. Jennifer was very kind and flexible w/ our use of the bathroom in the house and the sleeping accomodations were perfectly cozy. Thanks.
Jennifer was great. We really didn't see too much of eachother, but it was really a nice stay. I felt a little bad coming into the house late at night to use the bathroom, but she said not to worry! Her house is beautiful and really made my stay in Austin so comfortable.
If you need a place to crash in Austin and will be spending most of your time out and about, this is the place. It's a cozy little place, with enough space to stretch out without feeling cramped. I slept with the windows open most nights (in mid-October) and it was very comfortable. It even smells like cedar in the Tiny House, which is pretty nice. I stayed over a week and was comfortable the whole time.
There is no attached bathroom, which is fine if you don't mind hoofing it through Jen's house--and she is about as laid back and cool as can get, so there's no worries there.
Demetry the dog is a real energetic hound. He's a Doberman, but as Jen says, "A chihuahua trapped in a Doberman's body." And that's true. He's super friendly, doesn't bark at you, and is absolutely addicted to playing fetch with his ball. Since he's a dog, he poops in the yard, so just watch your step if you're coming back at night.
The house is on a quiet street, so I felt fine leaving some luggage strapped into the back of my truck. Takes about 15 minutes to get into the center of downtown with moderate traffic. Easy enough.
I'd stay there again--it's a good place to base your adventures in Austin.
My stay at the tiny house was excellent. It served as the perfect relaxing home base for my work and adventures throughout Austin. I would stay here again next time I'm in town.
Jen's cabin was the perfect spot for a short 4 Day reprieve in Austin. I got to know the bus schedule/route pretty well, so I was able to get around town self-directed. Jen was not around most of the time, however neither was I. Jen has a code accessed door to her house to use the bathroom, although the door had a few issues due to heavy rains. The only issue that I see for some guests is living amicably with Dmitry, Jen's dog. He's a big boy and can get in your way, since he hangs out on the front porch of the cabin most of the day, and because it was rainy all weekend, the porch got extremely muddy... Despite that, it was a nice stay and if/when Jen makes an appearance, I imagine she would be very hospitable.
My stay at Jennifer's Tiny House was really perfect. Jennifer was kind enough to accommodate my dog, Cooper, who got along swimmingly with her dog, Dmitry. The tiny house was clean and had just enough space for a comfortable stay. I arrived later than expected, but Jennifer was nice enough to stay up and wait for me. I would definitely recommend the tiny house to anyone looking for a private room in Austin.
Place was great. Host was very helpful but there was no fuss which was great. clean and comfortable
I stayed for 5 nights in the tiny house. It was very comfortabel and cosy. The AC was perfect as the temp's were high these days. Eventhough you have to go inside the house to use the bathroom or so, it doesn't feel weird, not-home, etc.
In the tiny house there's plenty of space to sit down and relax if you want. Also to store your stuff.
As said by the other previous guests, Dmitri the dog and the two cats are so sweet! And Jennifer and her boyfriend really give the space you need to be comfortabel. Jennifer is so easy going and very fun to chat with! If I had a question (doesn't matter how weird it was) she responds really quick.
The location is ok: if you rent a car, this is perfect. If you need to use public transport, you have to walk for 10 minutes or so. I didn't feel unsafe, though. It's a safe neighbourhood.
I had a great stay and the house made my stay in Austin and experience the Austin/Texas way of life just perfect!
