Cozy and Convenient

Review submitted: August 4, 2014   Date of arrival: August 2, 2014

Michael was very welcoming and helpful. The house was very cozy and unique. Loved his backyard with all the ducks and chickens. We had free fresh eggs each morning and it was delicious. It was a cool man's man cave. The location was also very convenient to all the activities we wanted to do. Wouldn't mind coming back to stay again!

Our first impression was "eclectic"!

Review submitted: June 26, 2014   Date of arrival: June 19, 2014

The listing description was accurate, as were the amenities described. The property wasn't as clutter-free and clean as I would have liked it- but maybe that's because I'm a neat freak! We loved Mike (the owner) and Louis (the gardner)- they were very personable! There were no sheets or pillowcases on two of the beds when we arrived- but I called Mike and he said (after apologizing) he'd be happy to come over and take care of it. (That wasn't necessary!) Additionally we ran out of coffee (egads!), paper towels and bath soap. Again, Mike was wonderfully responsive- and we had them that afternoon! We loved having fresh eggs in the morning, and our youngest son loved the chickens and ducks! (The garden was amazing!) We would have loved spending more time at the backyard firepit- but our trip was centered around visiting family in the hospital. Location was great for us- because it was just a few streets down from family members. Mike did ask if there was anything he could do to make up for some of the issues we had encountered during our stay- and we told him it wasn't necessary. I would definitely recommend the property as I think the issues we encountered aren't the norm AND you can't beat having a homeowner go out of their way to make things right!!

Awesome place to stay

Review submitted: April 7, 2014   Date of arrival: April 3, 2014

We first showed up on Thursday and we had a blast as soon as we walked in. We were drawn towards the house because of all of the cool trinkets, chickens, firepit among other things. Michael was a great host. We had called him on Saturday to see if we could have some friends over for a fire and he obliged. He even came over to hang out for a while. We also had asked him to pick us up in his party bus downtown. He then took us around to see all the mansion on the river and was a great tour guide.

We ate chicken and duck eggs every morning. How could it get any better? There is a coop on site with a wonderful garden and a chicken run.

If we come back to Austin we would definitely rent this place again.

Thank you Michael for all of your help.

Cool place with a lot of character

Review submitted: September 18, 2013   Date of arrival: September 13, 2013

Great place to stay for a weekend in Austin with buddies. Back patio with tv and PA setup is awesome, record collection is great and there's plenty of refrigeration for beer and all the free eggs and condiments you could ever want!

The owner of the place, "Stix" is a first class host and went out of his way to make us feel welcome!

This house is well-stocked and ideally situated. No more than a $15 cab ride to anything worth doing, the house served as a perfect home base for our bachelor weekend. Mike was super hospitable and accessible throughout the stay.

The property was clean, advertised accordingly, and I would definitely stay again.

Good time

Review submitted: September 2, 2013   Date of arrival: August 31, 2013

Micheal sure does know how to treat his guest. He leaves you full access to the house. His home is only a 15 dollar cab ride to 6th street. He can get you a hook up to some good places in town with no worries it was a great place to spend my bachelor party I would recommend someone else do it as well!

Coolest stay in Austin, very Portland & fresh egg!

Review submitted: June 5, 2013   Date of arrival: May 24, 2013

The house was great! We cooked our own meals even gathered eggs each morning, enjoyed the record collection and admired the garden. Even got a ride on the "Party Bus" parked in the front yard down to the "Third Base Sports Bar". Owner was great and very accommodating, Highly recommend a stay...

Deep in the heart of Texas

Review submitted: June 1, 2013   Date of arrival: May 24, 2013

Wow. What a great and convenient place to stay. We really enjoyed how cozy and quirky it was. The yard was a plus and having ducks and chickens made for great eggs in the morning. The location of the house is conveniently located for quick trip into the city. We would happily stay here again. The owner even gave us a ride in his party bus for free!

Perfectly Austin!

Review submitted: May 28, 2013   Date of arrival: May 24, 2013

We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations and with Michael's hospitality! The house was perfect for our family's Austin getaway! From the comfortable and eclectic living room complete with turntable, great album collection, flat screen tv and pet duck and chicken viewing to the fantastic back yard with fresh herbs and veggies at your fingertips as well as fire pit....we will definitely be back! Michael was a fantastic resource for all things Austin and the location was minutes from everything we needed. A+++

The best! Clean, welcoming and comfortable! Our host couldn't have been more accommodating. Fresh eggs EVERY morning for breakfast, very Austin like, plenty of room and nothing not there that was needed.

Would stay here again for sure. Thanks Michael and Louis for everything!

Our stay at Clucksville Coop

Review submitted: January 10, 2013   Date of arrival: December 29, 2012

We had a great stay at Michael's place! Each day was an adventure. It's in a sweet neighborhood with great places to eat, and easy to get to most places in Austin. Even when we just stayed home, we were able to cook, set up our own version of disc golf, or hang out by the fire. Michael's hospitality was beyond expectations, and he knows some of the finest folks in Austin. My family felt very comfortable there. The kids loved the bus (not pictured). The neighborhood is safe; the property is clean and comfortable. I have recommended it to friends already.

We enjoyed our stay here! It was a very different and unique experience. It was exactly what we needed for the weekend. The owner (Michael) rocked and was very accommodating! We will definitely stay here again. We enjoyed jamming to some of the oldies from his record collection and the urban farm was super cool - Good Times...We had a blast!

College Football Weekend ....

Review submitted: October 10, 2012   Date of arrival: October 5, 2012

Made the trip to Austin for the weekend to meet with friends and enjoy a UT game. The house was comfortable and provided the perfect atmosphere for the weekend. Getting over to the stadium was a quick (less than 5 min) cab down Enfield Rd with no traffic right over to our tailgate spot. We actually came back to the house early both nights to hang out there instead of hanging around the bars all night. The back porch was great for hanging with friends watching more College Football and MLB playoffs. Refrigerator, TV, comfortable chairs. The place provided great camaraderie and made for the perfect weekend.

Weekend with the Girls

Review submitted: April 23, 2012   Date of arrival: April 13, 2012

We loved this house and defiantly enjoyed our stay! Very spacious house, especially the kitchen, it plenty of room for the 3 of us. The chickens in the back were an unusual plus. There are not many chickens where we come from, so it was super fun to see them in the backyard. The house was so close to everything we wanted to do during our stay - it's right in the heart of downtown! The owners were so very nice and helpful; they answered any of our questions and made us feel welcome! We absolutely recommend this house to visitors of all ages!
