Tina was such an amazingly warm and welcome host. She makes you feel more like a friend than a guest! Her place and location is amazing as well. It's in a super charming residential neighborhood just off South Lamar and super close to South Congress. Plenty to do nearby and easy to get around the rest of the city. Would choose Tina's place over a hotel any day!
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Austin. The place was very much as advertised. Nice and clean upon arrival. Tina's neighbor met us and showed us around. The place was closely located to a lot of the best restaurants and nightlife that Austin has to offer. Everything was short drive away.
Tina was very accommodating and would check in on us periodically to make sure everything was ok. We would definitely stay here again.
The cottage is charming and beautiful, and Tina was a great host. Loved the fresh fruit. Would definitely stay here again!
Loved Tina's place! I was so cozy, cute and clean. Tina took such good care of use and gave us fruit, breakfast materials and wine for our stay. Have breakfast supplies was so amazing before a full day of session at SXSW. The ride to downtown Austin was super quick and Uber drivers were no more than 10 minutes away at any time.
The cottage was a perfect haven to come back to. My housing fell through at the last minute - and Tina was super-fast at responding and making me feel at home at very short notice. I am so grateful to her for the place and it was exactly as described. I was in town for a conference and spent most of my days downtown - but it was very easy to catch a bus from the cottage. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a sweet, comfortable place to use as a home base when visiting Austin. Tina was communicative via text and kept in touch to make sure I had everything I need.
We had a fantastic stay at Tina's cottage in Austin. 3 of us stayed in her 2bdrm/1bath cottage near South Lamar. We checked in at about 3pm and were greeted by her neighbor who gave us a little tour of the place. Tina left us with some yummy breakfast goodies and coffee. The cottage is decorated so cute and very clean. The best part of Tina's cottage is the location. We could easily walk to so many places and downtown is a cheap uber away. Walking to south congress took about 30 minutes and it was a beautiful walk. Tina checked in with us periodically to make sure everything was going well. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks Tina!

i'm a better lover than a fighter but i'll go rounds for the underdog. still i want to be more brave. i love to see people love and care for one another. i need music everyday. i value kindness, but prefer honesty.. noble characteristics individually but together they harmonize. i'm learning to trust my spirit, and what i feel in my gut. wanna keep tapping into my own untapped. original, individual thinkers motivate me. fascinated by a good story teller. i'm a peaceful warrior.. i like change, i'm not afraid to g o v e r y s l o w.. to cry, or to make a mistake, though i can be a terrible perfectionist. i love design.. particularly when it has function. i'm a great listener, and a better friend. i love to observe animal behavior.. think it's rad when a kiddo says NO. i love green in all the ways i can think of. it can be fresh and it can get real nasty. love it all. my favorite food at the moment is kale.. and all citrus. crave them daily. i love honesty, especially when it shares the stage with genuine tenderness. i love the moon. and the sound of creatures and trains in the quiet of nite.
i don't take too kindly to a liar. when tested, sometimes i hiss.. and scratch.
