As seen on HGTV! "My Tiny Cabin" is a complete house in 288 square feet, built as an experiment in simplification by CJ "Ceige" Taylor, situated under an old oak tree on a lot that's being renovated/ transformed. Wind your way along country roads for 2 miles and you'll find yourself on Nutty Brown Road and US 290, on your way to nearby Austin, Dripping Springs, and the many restaurants, wineries, distilleries, wedding venues and more.
In less than 300 square feet you'll have private access to:
*queen futon loft bed, with louvered windows to let the breeze blow through on a nice night, on the loft level
*queen fold-out futon on the first level
*rainfall tiny shower with hand-crafted wine barrel basin
*fully functional, sanitary cartridge toilet
*3-burner gas stove
*the biggest tiny refrigerator made
*tiny kitchen sink
*desk with pull-out work surface
*Samsung Smart TV (but no cable!) so if you have a favorite movie on a USB drive bring it with you. The TV can stream from a stick. We have a USB drive that already has movies on it, as well as some music. Also you are welcome to use the TV as a monitor (it has HDMI ports).
Important Things To Note Before Booking:
1) If you want to sleep in the loft, you must be comfortable climbing the sturdy, well-secured ladder to the loft. The hand rails are very strong!
2) This Tiny House is on a piece of country land that is still being connected to utilities. The toilet is a cartridge toilet (easy to use, very minimal smell like a household cleaner, when in use). It's all part of the tiny house experience, and we don't want you to be surprised!
3) Renovations are currently underway on the land where the tiny house is located. Be aware, depending on when you come, there might be a pile of old Texas limestones waiting to be carted away, or some other project in progress. We still think the tiny house is a great adventure, and we want you to know where it's located.
When you rent My Tiny Cabin you'll get the full run of the tiny house... All 288 square feet! Plus parking for one car.
We respect the fact that our guests are here to enjoy their vacations, or to accomplish their work goals. We live less than 20 minutes away and will be available by Airbnb messaging if you have any questions about the workings of the space. We will arrange to meet you between 4-8pm on your arrival day, so we can give you a quick tour and then leave you to enjoy the tiny house!
We regularly get three questions, so we'll answer them here!
Q: Can I stay for one night instead of two?
A: We'd love to accommodate you but we can't! Apologies! A few people have booked the tiny house for two nights and let us know they're only staying one. That's fine, and we understand if you need to find another Airbnb rental that will allow a one night stay.
Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: Sorry, no pets in the tiny house! It's part of our agreement with our wonderful property owner.
Q: Can I bring my kid(s)?
A: Sorry, no kids!
We hope you love My Tiny Cabin as much as we do! House Rules are simple:
1) No excessive noise after 10pm.
2) You must provide first and last names of your guest, if you have one, plus the make/ model/ color or your vehicle.
3) Follow directions for the cartridge toilet. It's easy but you have to pay attention to how it works at first!
4) Close and lock all windows any time you leave.
5) Securely close and lock the front door any time you leave.
We enjoy life! We are a quiet couple who love Austin, Texas, our Jack Russell Terriers, and adventuring through life together. CJ builds tiny houses and does graphic design and Katie runs a training company. We use AirBnB as guests when we travel and we host several properties. CJ "Ceige" built our Tiny House himself and we're proud to share it with others who want to try out Tiny House living for a short stay. We also have a private apartment called the Bungalow that's adjacent to our main home in another area of the Austin hill country, near wineries and the famous Salt Lick Barbeque.
