Perfect for me!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, fenced yard, and nice linens. TV in every room and good internet. Really cute, but not so fancy that you are worried about breaking something. Just right - comfortable at a great price! I love the deck that both the bedrooms open up to and the covered parking in the driveway! I definitely will stay there again.

Amazing Experience in Austin

  • 5 of 5

A group of us rented this cottage for a weekend in Austin and it was perfect! It is perfectly located, close to downtown, sixth street, the capitol, the trail next to the river, restaurants and grocery stores. We loved the deck and grilled out one of the evenings. The house was fully air conditioned, which was extremely necessary during the 95-100 degree days. The beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of space for the four of us. This was one of my favorite vacations, this house will be a part of some of my favorite memories spent in Austin. I highly recommend this cottage.

The good and bad.........

  • 3 of 5

As a long time VRBO user, I always look at reviews before securing a property. I was a bit reluctant to settle on this one since it had only one current review. So here are my thoughts:

PROS: Location is excellent. Close and walkable to many of Austin's things to do. Neighborhood was safe and quiet. Interior of the house was clean and well stocked. Beds and linens were excellent ! Lots of little extras were provided for an enjoyable trip.

CONS: Exterior of the house was run down. Back yard was completely unusable as it was one giant overgrown weed. We wouldn't even let our child go out there. Decks and exterior of house need some attention. Grill was provided but unusable as the grates were covered in mold. Trash cans outside were overflowing with trash that appeared to have been there for weeks. Kitchen utensils were plentiful but could definitely use updating. Had to cook breakfast in a very undesirable skillet.

Owner Caroline was very difficult to communicate with. I became increasingly concerned about the entire rental process and up until two days before the rental began was never comfortable with the situation. I was scrambling to find a back up hotel in the event the owner didn't cooperate. I have never had such a negative experience with an owner and communication in my past VRBO dealings.

Loved it! Safe and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

So I got this sweet cottage for my stay in Austin for SXSW. I knew from previous SXSW - that you really are never in your hotel or condo - and if you are and are trying to sleep - it can be very noisey! I was staying alone - so I was concerned before arriving about safety - but that melted away. This little cottage was perfect. Felt very at home. Two sweet bedrooms with all the amenities. Really loved it. :)

Great House - Ideal Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this wonderful little home from Caroline for an extended weekend in April 2015. The house was just perfect with tons of character. Perfect location to downtown and 6th street! The house was very clean, beds were so comfortable. Caroline was available for questions and very flexible when we needed to add an additional night. I highly recommend this home!!

Perfect house and experience at an amazing location.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a real gem at a great location. The neighborhood is filled with historical marked houses with tons of great people a character. We loved being able to walk to Z-Tejas and many other local food establishments. There is a park within a block too!

The house was great. The kitchen is nice if you like to stay in. The beds are good. Everything was really clean and ready for our arrival. I highly recommend this house to anyone.
