Eco-Chic Shipping Container Home Rental- Houze II

Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Round Top, Texas
We've all seen Shipping Container homes, but how many of us can say we've actually stayed in one? Built from recycled shipping containers, these simply amazing, durable, iron boxes were once used to ship just about anything imaginable around the globe by land and sea.

Now, with a new lease on life, FLOPHOUZE has transformed these containers into unique, comfortable, cozy living spaces. Come Stay, you won't want to leave.

This unit can accommodate 4 people comfortably with a two twin size beds and a full size pull out couch. They are cooled by two top of the line split level a/c units and can get as cool or as warm as you'd like.

Interaction with guests
For the most part this is a non-hosted property. Matt likes to give his guests space. There are many times he will be traveling to go find more worldly treasures and trinkets, so you may have the place all to yourself. If you happen to need anything during your stay, you can find the contact information in our welcome book. Our 12,000 sqft store Recycling the Past will be right in your back yard to peruse through at your leisure and there may be some employees from time to time running around as well as other guests.

About the neighbourhood
Flophouze is located on an old farm-to-market country road only 6 miles from the infamous Round Top Square. Be right up in the action with Round Top Antiques Fair, one of the largest and best antiques shows in the nation. Not bad for a Texas town with a population of 90. The Original Round Top Antiques Fair is held twice per year, once in September-October and then again in March-April. Being in Round Top is almost like taking a step back in time when things were slower and life was a little simpler.

When the fair is not in season, many antique stores stay open year round. Round Top is and always will be a breath of fresh air away from the busy city. It truly is a magical place.
Getting around
Parking is available at the houzes at no cost. Warrenton is within 3 miles and Round Top is within 6 miles.
