Property description

Our downtown bungalow is an ideal WALKABLE location for family, friends and colleagues in the heart of Austin's SOCO entertainment district. This is a perfect spot for a romantic weekend away or spacious enough for a family with kids and a dog, featuring a huge deck and a great fenced backyard for grilling out and hanging out.

SLEEPING: Can accommodate 1-6 people with 2 stylishly decorated bedrooms, and sleeping accommodations in the living room with a queen sofa sleeper. There are 2 full bathrooms for privacy.

EATING: This house features a recently remodeled kitchen with enough vintage touches to remind you that you are in a 1930s house in South Austin. There is a cozy dining area for indoor dining, as well as access to the backyard deck off of the kitchen. Kitchen has basic cooking set-up included with updated appliances. Walk to many of Austin's best restaurants from this location.

WALK TO/LOCATION: SOCO DISTRICT: This vintage cottage is right off of South Congress and you can walk to everything that this artsy neighborhood has to offer. Walk to:

-Restaurants, like Enoteca Vespaio Guero's Taco Bar and South Congress Cafe.
-Art galleries, like Yard Dog Gallery
-Coffee shops, Jo's Coffee and Bouldin Creek Coffeeshop
-Clothing boutiques, shop for boots at Allen's, or just go urban with an all-black ensemble at Blackmail Boutique
-And even a retro candy shop, Big Top Candy Shop, moments from your doorstep.

This quaint cottage is the perfect launching pad for an ACL, F1, SXSW or X Games outing for a group of colleagues with 5+ separate beds and 2 full bathrooms for space and privacy.

PROFESSIONALLY MANAGED: By Chereen Fisher and her Top Trip Rentals team with more than 7 years of experience in the Austin Luxury Vacation Rental Home market.
