SoCo house description

Steps from the bustle of SOCO’s cool bars, unique restaurants, and one-of-a-kind shops, a hip retreat awaits you. Welcome to Agave House, your home away from home in the heart of Central South Austin. Quiet yet minutes from everything that makes Austin unique, Agave House is a perfect place to experience the city or just relax.

Located on a quiet traffic street in a tree-lined neighborhood, Agave House feels world’s away from the buzz, but it’s only minutes from SOCO (South Congress Avenue)’s quirky cool, Zilker Park, SoLa (South Lamar), Lady Bird Lake, Auditorium Shores, the Austin Convention Center, Downtown music venues, Barton Springs Pool, and all that makes Austin a traveler’s delight.

Nearby you’ll find amazing clubs that testify to why Austin has been called the “Live Music Capital of the World.” You'll also encounter eclectic dining from 4-star restaurants to unique food trailers serving up eats so delicious even the New York Times and Cooking Channel's 'Eat Street' have taken note. If you feel like cooking, Whole Foods International Headquarters and local supermarkets and specialty food stores are just minutes away.

Agave House was recently remodeled with an architect’s guidance and attention to detail. You’ll find custom tile floors and backsplashes in the kitchen and baths, an amazing kitchen ready for your own culinary creations (with ample counter space and fully-equipped down to pantry items).

The house boasts a light and airy color scheme, and luxurious finishes including glass tile and travertine details. There are two Queen beds and two twin beds with high-quality linens for your comfort, and high-quality furnishings throughout the house.

Agave House has a large pet-friendly fenced backyard, Texas native landscaping, and a spacious back patio furnished with deck furnishings and grill. What a perfect spot for enjoying a glass of wine under the stars.

Feel like staying active on your vacation or trip to Austin? Whatever your sport, Austin is likely to be a great place to be active. Are you a swimmer? Within walking distance is a spring-fed Austin city pool, Big Stacy Pool. Famous Barton Springs is but a short drive away.

Runner or walker? Lady Bird / Town Lake trail is nearby for a jog or walk, and is home to Austin's famous Congress Avenue bat colony. St. Edward's University also has a nice crushed granite track even closer to Agave House. Cyclists will find Austin home to a large and friendly community of cyclists and many miles of designated bike lanes.

Whether you’re booking for a weeklong work project, visiting family at University of Texas or St. Edwards' University (which is walking distance to Agave House), or looking for a more low-key weekend of relaxation, Agave House is your centrally located second home in Austin.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: As the saying goes, 'I wasn't born in Austin, but I got here as soon as I can!' I grew up in Arizona and went to university in California but after living in Austin almost nine years, I cannot imagine calling any other place home. My fiancee is a born-and-bred Texas from the Austin area and we both call South Austin / 78704 home.

Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
Ever since I first visited Austin in 1999, I was hooked. It took me a couple years to move here permanently, but I've never looked back. Austin is and will always be my hometown. Ironically, I first stayed at a vacation rental when I came to visit! Since that time I have enjoyed numerous VRBO experiences in various parts of the country, from West Texas to Nantucket. I spent a lot of time working on Agave House after I bought it and fully rehabbed it. I always pictured it could be a soothing yet hip vacation rental, just like the ones I visited. I hope you find Agave House to be your home away from home-- I look forward to meeting you and hopefully you'll fall in love with Austin just like I did!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Agave House has a perfect location to enjoy Austin's unique culture, live music, and culture. It's close to everything-- from the universities to downtown's buzz-- yet it feels like it's a world away, because it's located on a very tranquil street with little traffic. It's a great spot to escape and relax after a busy day of exploring.
