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

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
