A great little house!

  • 5 of 5

I was in town for a few days by myself. This is a perfect solo living quarters. It *is* very small, so I'm not sure that I'd recommend it for two people, even folks that like each other a lot. :) But it is perfect for a solo stay. It's clean, super quiet, well-air-conditioned, within walking distance to all of South Congress -- and even to downtown if you don't mind hoofing it a little.

Having a drink on the front porch at night is a little slice of Zen quietude.

Parking is on the street, which worked out fine.

And the owners are really nice too. They even gave me a bottle of wine.

Beautiful from the second you walk up the drive!

  • 5 of 5

The tiny house was very clean, and surprisingly spacious. The location was perfect for exploring south Austin and a day trip paddle boarding at Barton Springs. We only wished we'd stayed longer!

Cozy, clean and a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Erin's guesthouse was the perfect place to stay while visiting Austin! It's easy to get to, we were able to walk pretty much everywhere (my husband and I are pretty good walkers) and if we needed anything, Erin was just a text away. She was a great host and this was definitely one of our favorite VRBO! Thanks again for having us guys. :-)
