This was my second stay with Steve! It was just as comfortable and relaxing as the first time. I would highly recommend this place!
This place was perfect. The accommodations were very comfortable and the neighborhood was great and conveniently located. Steve and Erin provided some great recommendations for nearby places to eat and get a drink. I highly recommend this place.
It was amazing! Better than a hotel stay. Secluded yet only minutes from downtown. Ample street parking. Steve was very welcoming. I'm very happy with my stay!
Steve and the cottage were terrific. He was super accommodating with check-in time, and he put in a lot of touches that made this place great. Fresh OJ and yogurt in the fridge, fresh fruit and granola on the counter, coffee, tea, wine, etc. Seriously a great place to stay. We only stayed one night but wish it had been more. I'm jealous of his sweet cottage.
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.
We very much enjoyed meeting Steve and his family! We are sorry they didn't stay longer. We would host them anytime!
