My gf and I loved this amazingly peaceful resting spot. The neighbors also do Airbnb and we were able to socialize. Definitely will be coming back soon.

Peter's little back yard house was perfect for us, very charming and quiet; we had a very pleasant stay!

This cute little place has all you'd need. It's like something you'd see in Tiny Houses on HGTV. The place was very clean and close to downtown. Also, the hosts are very nice but let you mind your own business. Would be happy to stay again!

We had a great time staying here! It was a getaway from the hustle and bustle of Austin, while still being close to downtown! We loved the outdoor shower and had a fun experience using the composting toilet. We would LOVE to come back and stay again!
