"My wife and I rented this cottage to travel from Dallas to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in Austin. We really weren't familiar with the Austin Soco (South Congress) area and were delighted to discover its great charm and Austin "weirdness." After arriving at the cottage (yep, lovely bottle of wine with a note from the owner), we walked the short (3-4 blocks) distance to SoCo. In crossing South Congress street, there is a stunning view to the north of downtown Austin with the Capitol at the end of the horizon. If you have previously visited Austin and have seen some of the major sites (e.g. the Capitol and UT), you really wouldn't need a car because SoCo offers a lot for a short visit and you're even within reasonable walking distance of the Barton Springs Pool, The Zilker Outdoor Theater (didn't make it to Hairspray, but heard it was great), and a great hiking trail that ends/begins at the Pool. The cottage is in a quirky, unpretentious, yet very safe and pleasant neighbor (pedestrian friendly). The drive-up appeal of the cottage won't blow you away, but the inside is so classy, clean, comfortable, tasteful, and utilitarian, it more than makes up for it. When we arrived, there was only one wine glass in the cupboard (previous tenant had apparently broken a few). We alerted the owner and he was over in less than an hour to replenish. Pictures you see of the place on VRBO are accurate. What you see is what you get. It is just as nice as it appears. Had dinner at two great restaurants we walked to (Guero's - Tex-Mex and Bouldin Creek Cafe - Vegetarian) - both were superb. Did yoga at Castle Hill Fitness (short drive) two days - good place for that."

"This quaint bungalow is the perfect way to enjoy more of real Austin with outdoor spaces in an upscale neighborhood walking distance to downtown and even closer to where you want to be for nightlife in SoCo. There is a beautiful park with a creek close by that has an outdoor free pool. House has wifi and kitchen...everything you need for a great stay in Austin! Would definitely stay here again! The owner was great to work with and so helpful!!"

"This is a charming home set back and high off the street with excellent privacy. Friendly neighborhood (people said hi to us on our walks) with well-kept homes and variety of architecture, both old and new. Lots of trees provide shade for the hot Austin sun. The location is fantastic--walking distance to neighborhood park, pool and SoCo attractions, and super close to downtown and river. The kitchen and back family room are spacious and very comfortable for a large group. Master suite is also big with lots of closet space and en-suite bath. A lovely back deck with a table for 6-8 and extra chairs is accessed from both. The two front bedrooms share a Jack-n-Jill bath. The owners have included anything you might need from bug spray and sunscreen to shopping bags, water bottles and a cooler. Even spices and oils for cooking are provided, a rarity in previous houses we've rented. Nice decorative touches such as hand-painted ceramic light switch covers and a red guitar in kitchen. Internet & AC worked great. For us, it was a wonderful base for UT graduation w/family. Sandy was very quick in responding to emails so we were able to confirm availability and set up payment without delay. Highly recommend!"

"This is my second time staying at Verde Camp, and will not be my last. Verde Camp offers SO MUCH MORE than a hotel or Air BNB, and is located a very short walking distance to South Congress Street, the main street and hub of Austin. The homes all have a very "Austin, Texas" aesthetic and feature cable TV/Netflix, a full kitchen (with complimentary bottles of Topo Chico, coffee and tea), amazing outdoor patio spaces, bikes, laundry and the price is amazing for everything you get."
