An incredible host – better than a hotel. The place had everything I needed and Steve was kind enough to leave breakfast food, coffee and snacks. In addition, he left coupons for a local coffee house. He also offered a ride or use of a bike if needed.
The location was fine for me, right by the university. A great deal if you are staying in Austin. I highly recommend it.
Our stay at Steve's cottage was great! It has a private feel with the assuring factor that Steve is right there if you need assistance! It's a cute space, spacious for a "small cottage" which gives you your own space amongst others! It is centrally located in a cute neighborhood! Everything you could need and more is provided by Steve and this cottage!
Steve's backyard cottage was fantastic and consistent with the listing. The space is very cozy and private and within walking distance to the University of Texas and other attractions in the city. The neighborhood itself was very walkable and quiet, with plenty to do in the area. In addition to all the amenities mentioned in the listing and by previous reviewers (i.e. fruit, yogurt, granola, juice, coffee vouchers, wine, delicious homemade cookies, towels, etc.), Steve was extremely hospitable - an exemplary host. He provided my wife and I with an extensive list of local restaurants and shops and offered rides and other suggestions throughout our stay. My wife and I recommend Steve's cottage to anyone staying in the Austin area. If the cottage is available the next time we are in Austin, there is no where else we'd rather stay.
Such a cozy place in the cutest neighborhood and centrally located to everything we wanted to do. Steve was a great host! Super responsive and personable. Greeted us with treats and local area recommendations. We will for sure be back and hopefully for longer next time. It was truly the perfect weekend getaway
Steve's place was conveniently located, quiet, safe, and easy to find. Steve was helpful and had a very quick response time to my reservation request. I would recommend this great spot! I will stay again on my next trip to Austin.
My husband and I arrived at Steve's house at the planned time. He was there to greet us. The backyard cottage was as depicted in photos. It was clean and cheery. Steve had nice touches such homemade chocolate chip cookies, granola, yogurt, and cold seltzer, and orange juice in the frig. A bottle of Pinot noir was on the counter, and more. What was lacking? Spoons! Steve- you need to get some decent spoons. I would also recommend getting rid of the giant desk and putting in a couple of comfy chairs or a sofa. The location was wonderful- easy access to downtown Austin. Lovely neighborhood. We felt safe and secure. The neighbor's rooster was well behaved and didn't crow at annoying times. Thank you for a nice stay.
Wonderful cottage, wonderful host, great neighborhood...I highly suggest staying here! Super clean, spacious, and the cookies he left for us delicious! Thank you Steve! We will be back!
What a perfect experience. Steve is fantastic (and not just because he baked fresh cookies and left them on the counter). The space is very aesthetically pleasing and roomy. The bed was very comfortable and there are amenities to make it feel like home - coffee, tea, granola, yogurt, fruit. The space is near the university and all the great restaurants in Austin. Close to the airport as well.
This was the most awesome super-reasonable price, fantastic location, thoughtful host, and interesting tiny house -style architecture stay I could possibly imagine. Seriously, Steve is super nice and the "backyard cottage" is super awesome. Stay here.
Steve was an all around amazing bloke. The place was exactly as described and pictured. Steve also provided a variety of snacks/fruit/yoghurt/wine for us to eat/drink during our trip.
He provided a number of great recommendations for the area which turned out very well. Extremely communicative and happy to help with any issues. Overall an excellent host with a great space to rent.
Seriously, Steve is such a top bloke.
We very much enjoyed meeting Steve and his family! We are sorry they didn't stay longer. We would host them anytime!
