Great location, clean and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. The AC ran cold and the bed was very comfortable. There were plenty of towels and toiletries available as well as kitchen items. Check in and check out procedures were simple. The owners were helpful but stayed out of the way. We would love to come back sometime!

As described, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We were in town from Dallas for two nights with our dog and the shed was as described. Be advised that if you are a big person the shower may be too small. I'm a big guy and It was tight but doable. Erin and her husband were very friendly the couple of times we crossed paths. We certainly enjoyed our brief stay.

Clean and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this cute little bungalow. My boyfriend and I were in Austin for the weekend celebrating my birthday. When entering the property I was very surprised and touched to find a bottle of wine with a happy birthday note. It's the little touches that mean the most.

Very Nice Accomodation

  • 4 of 5

The shed was clean and cool with a good A/C unit. Location was great, close to Barton Springs and Congress in a quiet yard with lots of trees and foliage for shade.

The owners seemed very friendly during our quick meet. It's all self serve check in etc. so you have lots of privacy but they did offer a cel number to text if any questions or concerns. They were nice enough to let me order a few items online to be delivered to their address that could not be shipped to Canada and let me pick them up there when we arrived.

There is a decent sized fridge and many little tidbits in the cupboards that could help make a longer stay more enjoyable. Had everything we needed and more - except for toilet paper. The one roll left for us ran out and we had to resort to using bits of paper towels but there were plenty of those.

Austin tiny house

  • 5 of 5

This place is a perfect option for two people traveling to Austin. We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed the city. We had everything we needed and are already planning our trip back.
