This tiny home is awesome. It was the first time my girlfriend and I stayed in a tiny home.

For anyone who has never stayed at a tiny house before, do it! It's a fun and unique experience. Whitney is great and full of neighborhood insight and recommendations. The toilet is unique but as long as you put lid down it won't really leave any odor. (Use the Poo-Pourri to be safe ;) Big yard and walking distance to a great coffee shop. Warning to people 6'2" and taller, you may not be able to stand straight up in most the house. Air conditioner and fans will keep you cool even on 100 degree day. Wifi was slow but the purpose of the place is to live off the grid. Thanks Whitney!

Whitney's tiny home was wonderful. Please know that this is eco-designed! It was spacious, well built, and had everything we needed for our weekend stay in Austin. It's walkable to 6th street and has a wonderful coffee shop right by the home. I would for sure stay here again!

Enjoyed my stay. Had everything that I needed and was close to the places I wanted to visit (6th street). Nice, quiet and relaxing experience.

Whitney's place was clean and conveniently located. It's in the middle of a quiet neighborhood next to an excellent coffee place. Only a 7 minute walk from the hippest part of 6th Street (not the rowdy side). Whitney was kind, responsive, and a great host. I will definitely book this place again.
