Holiday Rental House
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. FlopHouze VI contains one private room with a queen and twin bunkbeds. In the living area there is a beautiful and comfortable chesterfield couch. An efficient hollywood bathroom separates the space with an iron and hair dryer. Outside, each houze has its own firepit, hammock and chairs. Inside, the kitchenette features a sink, microwave, mini fridge, tea kettle and coffee maker for the morning get up an goers! The interiors are cladded with sustainably harvested wood from our farm in upstate New York and reclaimed lumber fr...We've all seen Shipping Container homes, but how many of us can say we've actually stayed in one?

The interiors are cladded with sustainably harvested wood from our farm in upstate New York and reclaimed lumber from a distillery in Kentucky. The windows were salvaged from a school in Philadelphia that was slated for demolition, and provide tons of natural light. On a playful note, we installed kitchen cabinet bases from an FDA laboratory in Brooklyn, and old bowling alley floors from Texas for the countertops! Upon your arrival, each houze will have complimentary coffee and tea, Topochico sparkling water, and Mexican Cokes. Just a short drive away in Round Top, there is a market for light snacks and other goodies. Every detail has been carefully crafted to ensure that your stay is a memorable one More

We have no rules- just reallllly strong suggestions! Keep it to a low roar till 11 - then use sign language. Good dogs are welcome. Additional $25 per animal. If you have an animal please let us know so that we can charge accordingly. Keep your area clean… its the country and critters are curious. We must obey the burn bans - if it's NO, it's NO, but we can have bonfires then marshmallows and smores for all! We like to respect our guests wishes by not allowing smoking within 10 ft of the houzes

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
