About Chris Aguero

We love Austin, and want to share it with others. We are originally from California, and enjoy the little-big town of Austin. It has lots of activities and enough culture to keep even the most experienced traveler's interest.

We enjoy traveling to great cities like Paris, Milan and New York. But we also enjoy the quaint charms of small walkable towns such as Italy's the Cinque Terra, and Portugal's Sintra.

We appreciate modern and historic architecture, and this little gem of a cottage has both. It's got good structure with modern features. Every year we try to improve upon it.

It has the best location for walking to dinner, or taking a long walk around the lake.

Last year we rode bikes to the Austin City Limits (ACL) Festival. It was great to just peddle up to the event and not worry about parking.

We hope our visitors enjoy this perfect little cottage as much as we do.

Chris Aguero purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Chris Aguero chose Austin

The location of this property is perfectly situated between the city and the lake in a hip and upcoming area of Austin. Great walk-ability to bars, restaurants and shops.

The closest bars and restaurants are on Rainey Street which is fast becoming the best spot to party like a local. Rainey is a quaint street where the houses have been renovated into cool bars and great foods. There is even trailer food area with lots of choices. Parking is crazy on Rainey Street, so most people who stay at the cottage just walk there. The walk is less than a 1/2 mile (.4 to be exact), and is worth it to miss the parking fees for most people.

With a car, the entire Austin area is free to explore, including the hill country, the worlds best BBQ, and great outlet shopping.

What makes this cottage unique

While this house boasts all the comforts of home, it is the location that made us grab it the first day it came on the market. The house is in impeccable condition, retaining its rich history, while feeling modern and clean.

The home has modern touches, like automatic keyless doors, smartTV, charging ports in the bedrooms, and a wireless printer.

We stock the Kitchen with snacks and treats to welcome guests and make them feel at home. There's coffee, tea and creamers to start the day perfectly. In the frig, you'll usually find farm fresh eggs,butter and almond milk .

The Kitchen is fully functional as it is beautiful. With granite counter tops, ample storage and double stainless steel sink, it has everything you will need, including microwave, gas stove, oven, and even a washer/dryer.

If you enjoy cooking you will find the kitchen is fully outfitted. There are copper-bottomed pans, spices, olive oil, and serving dishes. If you are a take-away foodie like me, you will find plates, dining ware, and wine glasses to make your meal special.

The best part of this place is its location. A nice walk to the lake and the best bars in Austin. The home even has parking off street for up to 3 vehicles, and usually some on-street parking as well.

We stayed at this cozy two-bedroom cottage over Labor Day weekend. Everything was to our satisfaction. The owner who is also a painter appointed the cottage tastefully. The cottage is located in a quite neighborhood, and is only a short car ride away from Austin's various attractions.

Cozy and funky, a great accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

The location is in a quiet neighborhood that allowed for peaceful easy sleep at the end of a long day. Everything we needed for our long weekend MotoGP stay was provided. While small, 64 Cross Street was comfortable, quiet and located within walking distance to Austin's music scene. Uber arrived at the house within minutes the times we summoned them. The shower was spectacular with plenty of hot water to go around. The bed.....oh, the bed, was amazing. We enjoyed sitting on the back patio area in the evening as we observed the evening wildlife. Chris made arrival as easy as it gets. If you want comfortable, quite and a good location, this is it.

The house we rented in Austin was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we rented the house from Chris. It was cute, clean, well equipped with the little things. The kitchen and bathroom were roomy and great. Nice bedrooms with comfy beds. The back yard was nice with beautiful trees and so many birds we'd never seen. It was located in the perfect place for us near downtown and close to almost everywhere we went during our stay. It was also close to the freeway, which was convenient. It was so easy to use and just plain comfortable. I would highly recommend this house. Perfect size for us with our two adult children.

Thank you Chris!

Rock Star Housing!

  • 4 of 5

It really was the perfect location to enjoy all the night life and amazing music that Austin has to offer. A few blocks from tacos, groceries, and excellent coffee. Easy access to running trails. And convenient to walk back to late at night after seeing show on Rainey, 6th Ave or Red River. Comfortably appointed with quality beds and towels. Thank you for offering it up for rent.
