We apologize for Hurricane Harvey Mess !
"Catch n Relax" is a perfect getaway for 1 or 2 people! The cozy private bungalow (only 216 sq. foot) is tucked behind my main house in the Heritage District downtown. Only blocks away from shopping and the beach! The colorful cottage is full of original art and surrounded by a patio with a bar area, fruit trees, herb garden & fenced yard. The cottage is complete with a fully stocked kitchen and a tiny bathroom with a shower.

The space

The bungalow is small but perfect for one or 2 guests with no wiggle room for any more. Entrance to the cottage is through the front gate along a sidewalk path. The cottage has a queen sized bed, table and 2 chairs (perfect for drinking coffee!), a full sized dresser for storage, a small bathroom with a shower, and a 32” TV with a Roku. Also DVD player too. The kitchen is stocked with a mid-sized fridge, microwave, coffee maker, 2 electric burners, dishes, pans, and silverware galore! What makes the cottage special though is the outside space. The windows open to a beautiful fenced-in fruit tree filled yard/bar space. The ocean breeze makes the patio a perfect space to spread out on several tables/chairs to dine or relax. The patio also features a bar area under twinkly lights to whip up some beach cocktails. After you hit the beach don't forget to try the outside shower adjacent to the bungalow! Think you might need more space or want to invite friends ? See main house link below.

Guest access

The guests have full access to the patio as well as all of the backyard/patio/bar area. The guests will not have access to the front main house unless they choose to rent that space out as well. ("Proud Mary" https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/13972602.) The guests will have their own gravel parking spot in front of the gate to the backyard.

Interaction with guests

I split my time between Rockport and Austin so we may cross paths or you may see guests that are renting the main house. Either way I am always available by phone/texts/email! I realize that most guest come to relax so I will give them space but am always willing to give recommendations if they are wanted!

Other things to note

- Please note that the bungalow can only sleep 2 people while the main house can sleep 4-8 guests.
- Parking is available on street or for one car on right side of yard (gravel driveway). The paved driveway is reserved for the main house.
- If you need more space check out the front "Proud Mary" main house. Link : https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/13972602
- Because the bungalow is small, only one dog is allowed. We ask all guests to clean up after pets. Supplies to clean up after dogs are hanging on front of the yellow owner's shed.

The bungalow was perfect for our stay—just the right amount of space and I was so happy that I could bring my dog. She absolutely loved the yard! Unfortunately Rockport Beach was closed during our stay while they broke down the Seafair (tip: check their (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page for unexpected closures) but if you find yourself in a similar situation, North Beach is about a half hour away. Wishing Rockport all the best while they rebuild!

This place was perfect for our little get away! Super cute, very clean and the little things thoughtfully handled. Even had access to beach toys/chairs/cooler to use.

Robbin’s Catch and Relax cabin was a much need haven where I was able to cocoon after long days of property management and repair following Hurricane Harvey. The artwork and decor really brightened the day. The shower and toilet space are small. A large person would find it uncomfortable. I didn’t mind it because the place was so cute.

I'm a native Texan and have lived and loved Austin for over 26 years. I started hosting after becoming an empty nester but always a natural host eager to share tips and my home with visitors to Austin. I split my time between Austin and the Texas Coast. I love both cities and happy to share .

My day job I'm a property manager for a non- profit affordable housing and I paint in the evenings and weekends. I am a 4th generation self taught folk artist with art displayed around Texas and the Caribbean. My home is filled with my art as well as other artists I collect ! When I am not working or painting I enjoy travelling, sailing, snorkeling, diving, yard work and playing with my 3 rescue dogs and birds.

I love the music scene in Austin and try new restaurants as much as possible. I'm a relaxed host and want my guests to relax as well and enjoy my home , my yard and all the fantastic things Austin has to offer.
