I’m a laid back, 33 yr old in the technology field. I read, work, play, and try to stay in shape.
Craig was an awesome host. I stayed with friends for a couple of days before checking in to his place for SXSW, and he drove all the way to the north side of Austin to pick me up and help me get settled. He was always very available by phone and text to give me food suggestions and the like.
The place itself was fairly basic, but perfect for what I needed. It was clean, comfortable and more than enough room for one person (though it would also be comfortable for 2-4 people willing to bunk up together).
The bus was super close by, making it easy to get to downtown (only $1 for one way, $2 for a day pass). The bikes were also helpful, though they're simple cruisers without gear shifts, so it was a bit of extra work going uphill. Still, way better than getting a cab! A couple of days I chose to walk into town even, because it was so nice outside (I'm from the cold Midwest, the sunshine was welcome), and that only took about 30 minutes or so, which really didn't feel bad at all.
In all, it was an extremely positive experience. I would (and probably will) stay at Craig's place again.
craig's cabin was great - super close to downtown, super cute and awesome spot, and it was great to have bikes! There's a HEB pretty close that hooked us up with whatever we needed to cook for ourselves while we were at sxsw! awesome spot and really easy, clean, nice!
Craig was an amazing host, and incredible apartment. Amazing value for money in the busiest time of the year for Austin.
Craig was a wonderful host! He was always on top of making sure we had everything we needed. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was also really close to SXSW and the bikes he provided were a perfect compliment to our festival experience!
Amazing host. Craig provided everything we needed and even offered to give me a ride when it was tough to get one during the chaos of SXSW.
Craig was a fantastic host. His place is incredibly welcoming, and has an amazing feel to it. The room was fully equipped, quiet and private. He was super helpful, and even generously offered to drive us a few times. The apartment is within walking distance to public transit, which worked like a charm for us while in Austin. I would definitely stay with Craig again!
Our experience in Craig's Cottage was amazing! Is a great place to stay in Austin near of downtonw. Perfect for 2, max 4 people. Totally recommended!
Craig and his roommate are both good dudes - Craig picked me up from my previous accommodation _and_ made an early morning run out to the airport when I left. The room was a rather small office with a fold-out sofa bed, but for $100 per night during SXSW it seemed a pretty reasonable deal. Most hospitable.
We had a great experience in Austin and Craig's place was perfect for my friend and I. We didn't spend much time in the place but the proximity to the bus and to downtown was great especially since we were in town for SXSW. Craig was a very generous host and picked us up from the airport and even woke up to drop us off at the airport at 5am the day we were leaving. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Austin, especially if for one of the amazing festivals that are always going on!
Craig was a great host! The condo and bedroom wonderful and as advertised by the photos he posted.
We enjoyed working with Craig to ensure that his girlfriend had a memorable birthday. We corresponded throughout their visit to accommodate their situation. We enjoyed working with Craig and all our B&B guests because it is regular people working with regular people to provide a quality service. We are free to handle situations as we please so everyone is happy. No middle man or corporate policies. Craig left the cottage neat and clean and left one of our best reviews yet! We hope the Austin's will be regular customers and know that mi casa es su casa. Craig, please come again real soon!
This was an excellent guest. He was polite and easy to please. Nothing about him required alot of extra attention. And he was happy and smiling whenever I saw him. Thank you Craig!!!
