SoCo house description

Close to all that Austin has to offer!

Jim and Pete's urban retreats, on the urban side of Travis Heights in the heart of SoCo, our 'getaway' duplex house is just steps away from all that South Congress has to offer. Furnished in a funky, eclectic, south Austin style, this duplex unit has a nice private lot, fenced back yard, and off street parking. If you need additional sleeping quarters please contact us . Bring the whole gang or keep it to yourselves.

Restaurants, bars, clubs and some of the best music venues in Austin are just steps away, along with all the eclectic shopping South Congress is known for. Year round 72 degree spring fed pool a two minute walk from the front door, along with beautiful Stacey Park for taking a refreshing morning or evening stroll. Go hunt fossils in the magical 40-acre nature preserve just five blocks away. HEB supermarket is two blocks from the home with easy access to downtown shuttle bus. Downtown Austin is a little over a mile away. Our goal is to provide you with a clean, comfortable, well-maintained place to stay. All the usual vacation rental amenities such as high thread count linens (superior hotel quality), fully stocked kitchen and comfortable living room with flat screen HDTV. An excellent value that leaves the hotel options a poor second choice. So, c'mon now, what's not to like? Join us,. you’ll be glad you did. If you 'overdo' it at the Continental Club, relax; you can crawl home from there. Looking forward to your visit.

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Owners Profile Two aspiring New York musicians find themselves adrift. They end up shipwrecked in Austin. They soon learn that it’s the finest music venue on the planet earth. Peter gets a few gigs and Jim tries to make a life for himself selling “chicken fried” hot dogs by the side of the road. They combine resources to acquire a vacation rental so their friends have a place to stay. We're actually a couple of crazy guys who decided that this house is a 'keeper'. Please come and enjoy.

                  Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
                  Great location and a very pleasant home.
