                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: We've lived in Austin since 1999 and we love it. We enjoy traveling (as often as possible) and meeting the travelers that grace our vacation rentals. Our other passions include graphic design, film making, publishing, and wake-surfing on lake Austin.

                          Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
                          When we found it, the 'little red house' wasn't red. It was dirty grey and literally sinking into the ground. After a massive renovation effort we brought it back to life and restored it to better than original. Nearly 100 years old, this jewel of Texas history is the perfect place to call home as you explore Austin's most popular neighborhood.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          RENT WITH CONFIDENCE With 6 years of experience, Soco Spaces has always operated in compliance with the city of Austin legal requirements. The City of Austin requires that Vacation rentals obtain a license for legal operation. Legal operations should have their license number on their listing.
