** Welcome to SoCo Spaces **
The red house (license # 100853) is nestled on a quiet, tree-lined street just 2 blocks off South Congress (SoCo) in charming Travis Heights. Stroll to fantastic restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and music venues. You can also easily catch a bus or walk downtown.

This light-filled, modernized 1926 bungalow is the ideal place to relax after a day or night of exploring vibrant Austin.

Enjoy an iced tea or margarita in the private back yard - under a majestic 350 year old oak tree.

Get a good night’s rest on the comfortable eco-bamboo memory foam mattresses. Both main floor bedrooms feature queen beds and high quality linens. The master bedroom boasts a large walk-in closet. A loft with a double futon sleeps additional guests.

The main bathroom has a tub/shower combo and slate tile floors. A half bathroom and laundry area are conveniently located off the kitchen.

The kitchen, dining, and living room feature high vaulted ceilings. The fully equipped kitchen features a gas oven, dishwasher, disposal, microwave, coffee grinder, french press, toaster, and blender. The flat screen TV in the living room is equipped with google fiber tv, a dvr, and a dvd player. There’s also a digital radio with pandora and internet radio stations.

In case you need to work, you’ll find a roomy desk and the fastest wi-fi available (Google Fiber)!

There’s a carport for one vehicle plus free street parking.

Beautiful Stacy Park is 3 blocks east and equipped with 3 acres of walking trails and a heated, spring-fed swimming pool. You'll also find a wading pool, playground, & friendly neighbors at Little Stacy Park - enough fun to entertain even the tiniest of travelers for hours.

We live in this neighborhood, we love this neighborhood. Once you've enjoyed a relaxing stay at the little Red House, we know you will too!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2000

About: We've lived in Austin since 1999 and we love it. We enjoy traveling (as often as possible) and meeting the travelers that grace our vacation rentals. Our other passions include graphic design, film making, publishing, and wake-surfing on lake Austin.

Why South Congress, Austin, TX, USA:
When we found it, the 'little red house' wasn't red. It was dirty grey and literally sinking into the ground. After a massive renovation effort we brought it back to life and restored it to better than original. Nearly 100 years old, this jewel of Texas history is the perfect place to call home as you explore Austin's most popular neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
RENT WITH CONFIDENCE With 10 years of experience, Soco Spaces has always operated in compliance with the city of Austin legal requirements. The City of Austin requires that Vacation rentals obtain a license for legal operation.
