About the property

Great 2 Story House on Stacey Park, 4 Bed/2 Bath, (Sleeps 8-9) walk to Congress

This wonderful house overlooks Stacey Park and is located in the coveted Travis Heights neighborhood of Austin.

Great Location!

Award winning restaurants and excellent shopping are just a five minutes walk away to South Congress Ave. (SoCo). Downtown is minutes away, where shopping, nightlife and cultural events await!

We regularly walk to Riverside to Lady Bird Lake and walk along the river trails. The kids love watch for trains on the bridge and also love going to see the dogs play all along the park. You don't have to have a car at all as you are not far from some of the best fun in Austin; though, that said, a car, bike or cab might be nice on the hotter days.

Walk out the front door and you will find a peaceful Stacey Park with excellent walking/running paths along Bouldin Creek. Walk the path a few minutes to the right and you will find beautiful Stacey Pool (open year round/spring fed) great year round for lap swimming and kiddo fun in the summer. Walk a few minutes to the left and you will find a large park and children's playground with picnic tables and outdoor grills. There is a shaded fenced in pool for small children (summer months only) and 2 refinished tennis courts (with lighting till 10PM).


The house decor is smart, comfortable, and simple. There are beautiful hardwood floors downstairs, Mexican tile in the kitchen and Berber carpet upstairs.

All bed linens are 600 thread count.


Upstairs you will find the Master bedroom (king bed) and a small bedroom (queen bed). The upstairs is one my favorite spots in the house. It is pretty and bright; the hallway has 2 comfortable club chairs for reading and relaxing. Our children love to play in this area. We do require that young children are supervised at all time upstairs due to the loft overhang and the stairs

The master bedroom features a wonderfully comfortable California king size bed, an en suite bath with two sinks, a large shower, and a whirlpool tub.

The small bedroom features a comfortable queen bed. This small room is one of my favorite places to sleep.


The downstairs front part of the house has a small living room, 2 bedrooms with comfortable Queens size beds and a full bath.The bedrooms and bath are located off of a short hallway that can be closed off at night or in the morning for privacy or quiet.

Also downstairs, is the spacious and well equipped galley kitchen with its adjacent dining area. It is nice and open and and is perfect for dinner with friends and family. The kitchen table has 2 leaves that expand to seat 8-10 comfortably. When my whole family is visiting, we pull in the small oval table from one of the sun rooms and place it on the end so that we can all eat together.

The Kitchen dining area opens onto the larger Sun Room which we use as the main living room. It is a great room for hanging out and visiting or watching TV (Large Flat screen with full cable). This room is wide so it is really 2 rooms in one. We have it decorated so that the side without the TV lends itself to game/card playing or reading etc. The couches are large and comfortable and there are many chairs for larger groups.

The back wall of the sunroom has 6 floor to ceiling windows that look out on one of the nicest features of the house; the beautiful back deck. It is a wonderful place to relax or eat/drink in the shade of the gorgeous very old live oak.

Laundry Room

Off the Dining area, there is a laundry room with a full capacity washer and dryer.

Longer term rental options

We are also open to long-term rental. We would prefer to rent the house furnished but can be flexible for the right renter. Rental start date for furnished rental may also be flexible. Will only consider Long term if no short-term guests are booked within the dates desired.

So, so warm and comfortable. We had 8 extended family members staying together for a family wedding.

  • 5 of 5

The home and outdoor living area in Austin were perfect for our extended family. The kitchen was fully equipped for our family potluck post-wedding brunch outside on the patio. So much fun! Thanks for sharing your lovely home!

So Cozy Home Near SoCo

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a great location--directly across from a park and just a 10 minute walk to SoCo shops, restaurants and bars. The house is comfy and charming, with plenty of room, and really well stocked with basic things like spices, laundry detergent, paper goods, etc. The property managers were pleasant to work with and very responsive to our questions. The house is older and it could use some updates here and there, so it might not suit someone who expects perfection in EVERY detail. But if you want quiet, cozy and convenient, this property fits the bill!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

While the house could use some updates, especially in the bathrooms, its location was great and the house had plenty of room. The one disappointment was that while the backyard was fabulous, the table on the deck was so rickety that none of us felt comfortable using it for dining. Given how wonderful is the backyard deck, the owners really should invest in some new outdoor furniture.

South Congress great weekend

  • 5 of 5

I'm a farm kid from Iowa living in California for the last 25 years. When my wife and I visit Austin we prefer an honest home versus a hotel stay. Our hosts welcomed 4 couples and we had plenty of room for privacy and spreading out in the house or backyard. We walked to groceries, breakfast, lunch, dinner, shops and music clubs. We all love the South Congress vibe and this comfortable home only enhanced the experience. All the original instructions were sufficient to keep us engaged and running smoothly. Any questions were answered quickly. Checkin and checkout were ridiculously friendly, well-informed and easy. Bathrooms clean and efficient. Kitchen wide open and well appointed. See? We loved it. You will, too.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

5 girlfriends and I stayed for a long weekend (our annual reunion since college in the '90s). Not only was there plenty of room, comfortable beds, nicely stocked kitchen and great "hang out" space inside and outside but the location was within walking distance to South Congress (think Torchy's Tacos, Continental Club, shopping, etc)). It was also a quick cab ride downtown with RideAustin (like Uber). The property managers were very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for a wonderful weekend!
