Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The best part about the house is the *old* Austin feel that you get (a rarity nowadays). The Verde Camp houses date back to the 1930's and share a half acre of land, and have recently been remodeled with all the modern conveniences.

The birds chirp in the morning, the squirrels dance in the shady canopy from a 250 year-old oak trees, church bells can be heard in the distance at noon. It's a pretty nice spot year round.

However, this area is HAPPENING. Not 3 blocks away is what NPR recently called 'the coolest street in America'. Vinyl records, the best thrift shops, and uniquely Austin stores, restaurants, coffee, and clubs. You can even get a straight razor shave. Perhaps a folk art galleries or a vintage sign is something you need..

Lots of veggie options, live music, clubs, Art houses, theater. Walk/bike to Lady Bird Lake (Town Lake) and get some exercise. Hit downtown, 6th Street, UT Longhorn games, kayaking/canoeing, and you KNOW you want some barbecue and a beer. It's all just minutes away.

Catch the bus or rent a scooter to almost anywhere. Or, hey.. just chill. Watch movies via the Roku on the 42' flat screen. Use the WiFi to surf the web. Get some work done. Rest, relax, get a massage, take a walk, order some food. Whatever. Once you stay, I know you'll come back.

Made the weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I met my girlfriends for a weekend in Austin and all 3 of us stayed in the 2 bedroom Mexia house. We loved that we had space to spread out without having to pay for 2 hotel rooms. The location was also close enough (and the weather tolerable enough) that we ended up walking from home to SoCo, Zilker, Rainey, and even UT and the Capitol! It was a great location and a great price. We didn't really optimize the use of all the amenities since we were there such a short period of time but we all could see coming back to Verde Camp on a longer trip w our respective families!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Verde Camp multiple times. It offers everything we need. Excellent accommodations and it's close to some our favorite Austin food, drinks, music, shopping, etc.

We will come back again and again!

An Austin Favorite

  • 5 of 5

It's one of Austin's many treasures. I almost hesitate to review it because I want to keep it a secret, but the owners are deserve to be as successful as possible. Cute house with a great authentic vibe. Wood floors, good design, Dr. Bronner's in the shower, a truly functional kitchen, all within easy walk of Austin's South Congress neighborhood.

Love this place.

  • 5 of 5

Brought Massachusetts friends to Austin. Verde Camp is the best way to get a taste. Hyper kid-friendly, thoughtfully designed and kitted out, walking distance from so much great stuff. Spent way more time at the house than we expected because it was so pleasant. This was our seconod stay and we will be back.

Stay at Verde Camp

  • 5 of 5

My wife, sister, brother-in-law and myself stayed at Verde Camp for several nights in September. We found it excellent for our purposes; the interior and exterior are very well kept, clean and stylish. The mattresses are nice and firm, there are pillows everywhere, and the air con kept up with the stupid Texas heat.

The neighborhood is quiet and all you can hear are the crickets. This is a far better value than the hotel chains a few blocks away.

Camp Verde is the bomb. ...

  • 5 of 5

Camp Verde is the bomb. Having lived in Austin for 7 years, we knew how great the location would be and it didn't disappoint. Walks to S. Congress for coffee, breakfast tacos, etc. were great fun. The house is spacious, well-equiped, clean, and comfortable with great beds and linens. Owner BJ and caretaker Michael are super friendly and attentive. We had our 2 and 4 year olds with us and they loved playing in the yard. We hope to stay several weeks next year.

The big draw is that you're 2 blocks from South Congress.
