SoFi condo description

***Great rates for longterm rentals over summer!!! Just ask!***

This is THE PERFECT PLACE to experience everything that is Austin. We're only 1/2 mile from downtown, 1 mile to South Congress, and just yards away from bars, restaurants, food trailers, and Lady Bird Lake. The location is especially great for ACL and SXSW. And did I mention that the view of downtown from the living room is unreal. See the pictures below. It doesn't get any better than that.

While there are many many restaurants less than 1/4 mile away (Elisabeth St. Cafe, Torchy's, El Alma) , some of the greatest restaurants in the US are less than 1/2 mile away. Uchi is consistently ranked amoung the best places in America. South Congress St. also provides many award winning restaurants such as Perla's, Homeslice, etc.

This is a 2BR/2BA condo. Its located on the 3rd (top) floor and offers amazing views. The living room is large with a new 51' television that includes cable and Netflix, Pandora, etc. There is a brand new luxury sleeper sofa. Fresh linens are included for the sleeper sofa. A balcony is attached to the living room that also boasts those spectacular views. There's a dining room table that seats four. The kitchen is fully stocked and has everything that you need. The refrigerator is large and will be basically empty so you can stock it as you'd like. There are also hardwood floors throughout.

The first bedroom has a queen bed and yet another private balcony with a view of the courtyard. There is also a TV in this room with cable and an attached bathroom. The second bedroom also has a queen with an attached bathroom. The closet is totally empty and there is a large empty chest of drawers so you have plenty of space to keep your clothes, etc.

Condo includes:

2 Parking spaces
2 Queen beds
1 Sleeper Sofa
2 Full baths
Clean linens (including for sleeper sofa)
Clean towels
Fully furnished kitchen
Washer and Dryer (in unit with detergent provided)
2 Private balconies
WiFi
Cable
51' Flat screen
Use of the printer

Our complex also has Car 2 Go parking right in our parking lot! Car 2 Go is a new and innovated way to rent a car by the minute and drop the car almost anywhere you like in Austin. It is typically much less expensive and convenient than getting a rental car or taxi around the Austin area.

For questions about Car 2 Go, please visit their website https://www.car2go.com/en/austin/ or ask me for more information. I'm happy to answer any questions about Car 2 Go.
