Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Our thoughful 2BR/1BA house features a lovely open floor plan, an expansive deck with fan, great backyard and comfortable sleeping arrangements for four adults.

Enjoy the Texas weather from an enclosed back porch with plenty of room to dine and lounge late into the evening. When you’re ready to venture out, it’s just a few minutes’ walk to SoCo’s famed shopping area, and a 15-minute bus ride or even shorter drive into the heart of downtown.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

A sunny living area features a full-size sleeper sofa and two modern chairs for lounging after a day on the town while catching your favorite shows on the flat-screen TV. Flowing drapery, tranquil color schemes and light wood furnishings lend this space laidback Austin attitude.

An arched doorway leads into a classic dining room that accommodates four and features vibrant patterns for extra pep. Connected is a kitchen with traditional white cabinetry, a full suite of appliances and checkered tiles floors straight from the ‘50s!

On warm evenings, enjoy your meal in the covered porch dining area with seating for four, then enjoy a nightcap on the backyard loungers.

Two bedrooms each offer plush queen beds and elegant hardwood floors. Both share a full bathroom with shower/tub combo.

OUR LOCATION

South Congress is chock full of unique shops, eateries and interesting people, and our home is only one block from all the excitement. SoCo’s famous shopping area is only a five-minute walk from our rental – here, you’ll find everything from eclectic antiques at Uncommon Objects to circus-themed sweets at Big Top Candy Shop. Rent a bike to join the locals in scoping out the street top to bottom.

Hungry? Treat yourself to deep fried deviled eggs at Lucy’s Fried Chicken. You can walk there and back to burn some calories. Grab a margarita at Guero’s while you listen to some live music or satisfy your taste buds with gourmet burger at Hopdoddy’s.

If you have a car, you can drive downtown in just 10 minutes. If not, it’s just a 3-minute walk to catch a public bus that travels right into the heart of the city.

Perfect little SoCo house

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband and two young kids and we loved it. I lived in Austin about 13 years ago and this house reminded me so much of the house I rented.

While the house is small it accommodated us perfectly. The screened in porch was awesome for early morning breakfast with the kids and playing. Location is perfect. Walk or short drive to all our fave spots.

A few comments: an extra blanket or two would be nice. The toaster only toasts on one side. Also, I noticed a crack in one of the stemless wine glasses and tossed it. Lastly, I couldn't find a corkscrew anywhere which was a near crisis!

All around a perfect little house. We'd totally stay here again.

Great little house

  • 5 of 5

This a a great little house which has a securely fenced back yard. It is just

1/2 block off of S. Congress so walking distance to all that SoCo offers. The kitchen is well equipped for home cooking. There are just 2 suggestions. The mattresses (2queens) need to be replaced and there needs to be more comfortable porch chairs. The house was immaculate when we arrived. AC worked great. Would stay here again

Wonderful Austin stay!

  • 5 of 5

This little home was perfect for our weekend away from home. 2 adult couples had plenty of room to be comfortable and we really liked that the home had 2 queens rather than the second bedroom having a twin bed scenario. The home is older, yet very clean and has everything you need. Also, with older homes you sometimes have poor AC, but this house had a newer unit and stayed nice and cool in the 100 degree Austin heat! The location was perfect. You can walk to plenty of restaurants and shops on South Congress, and are only a short drive or cheap uber ride away from downtown or Barton Springs/Zilker Park. The street was quiet despite being close to the action. Also there's a big grocery store very close by. Overall, would definitely stay there again and would recommend to anyone looking for a place in Austin.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed in this lovely, quaint home for 3 nights in June. We loved this house, it was perfect for our first visit to SOCO. We walked the entire SOCO area and it was a short car ride to Rainey Street restaurants and bars. There is an HEB grocery store a block and a half away. We used the enclosed back porch frequently, especially during a nice rain shower! The kitchen was fully stocked. The beds were VERY comfortable. We took a nice walk through the surrounding neighborhood which was really fun to see all of the eclectic styles of the nearby homes. We would definitely stay at this great property again!

Reviewer Comments:

Apart from the convenience, location, cleanliness, etc. the house is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. I'd like to know the The name of the interior decorator that created this retro 50s look with such perfection, Even the cheesee mural of the Cowboys riding in the sunset looks cute. Only inconvenient was that you're supposed to take the garbage out Monday night and the recycling bin was full of smelly junk so the recycling truck did not pick it up, so I had to empty the junk into the trash bin myself; it was very heavy and kind of hurt my back. Too close of a "home away from home" feeling. Can you make sure the occupants put the trash in the trash and the recycling stuff in the recycling bin? Thanks ! I would recommend this place to others. I liked the Turnkey administration, very professional.
