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.
Steve is a sweet fellow with a beautiful and clean little cottage in his backyard. The neighborhood is exactly what you want if you're going for a weird/indie Austin experience. Steve goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Can't recommend highly enough.
This is a lovely cottage with a peaceful atmosphere, nicely tucked away in the host's gorgeous backyard. Steve was flexible, kind, and went above and beyond to welcome us and show us hospitality with snacks, juice in the fridge, and even a nice bottle of wine! Great experience and location!
I spent two weeks in the cottage, and reccomend it without a blink. It is super nice, just like in the pictures. I did not have a car and could get around by bus easily (the 21 takes you to Wholefoods; the 20 takes you downtown to Congress Ave). It's a 15-20 min walk to the LBJ Library or the Benson Collection at UT, and a little more to the core of the UT campus. The neighborhood is safe to walk, even in the evening. Steve is a great host, makes everything possible for you to have a great stay. I can't thank him enough...I truly enjoyed the days I spent there.
We very much enjoyed meeting Steve and his family! We are sorry they didn't stay longer. We would host them anytime!
