SoCo house description

3 bedroom / 2 full bath vacation rental in the highly desirable 78704 area of Austin, TX -- completely remodeled private home with contemporary furnishings.

Just minutes from downtown and a few blocks from Austin's famed SoCo (South Congress) neighborhood our home comfortably sleeps 8 and features a gourmet kitchen, 3 luxurious bedrooms and 2 beautiful full bathrooms. Gorgeous wood flooring, bright natural lighting and private patio make 117 La Vista the perfect vacation rental for a downtown Austin, TX experience.

Each bedroom features brand new Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses, high thread-count cotton linens and plenty of closet space. The bathrooms are appointed with plush hotel-quality towels. Outside a very private backyard awaits with a covered patio area, a tiled sink and a large 4 burner stainless gas grill with side burner. The spacious backyard also features a stone fire pit and lots of space for year round entertaining.

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Joel and Valerie are thrilled to offer our second rental after one year of renting our own residence (Homeaway #958925) for the past year. We are so grateful to live in such a wonderful city and are thrilled to host our guests in luxurious style so they may enjoy Austin and all that it has to offer. One of us bleeds orange and is a Longhorn Alum., the other a Northwestern Wildcat. We love the music scene, are foodies at heart with adventurous spirits to locate the next and best restaurant or trailer and don't miss a festival when possible. WE LOVE AUSTIN and know you will too!!

              Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
              We bought this property to allow for easy access to one of our favorite parts of town. But we only wanted a property that was beautiful, updated and was as nice to stay in as it was to leave given its perfect location. The entire area is blossoming with new remodels.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We looked for many months for the perfect property in the perfect location--we wanted to have it all!! And we found it. This home offers the best of a great use of beautifully remodeled space, room to easily entertain and close to all of the attractions that make Austin one of the greatest places on earth.
