About Connie 'Paprika' Leaverton

I have had the great fortune of living in Austin for more than 25 years, and feel this Soco Bungalow is not only a great location in Travis Heights, but its the cutest house with a bit of retro and southwestern design to make this a wonderful, unique Austin experience.

Walk to Soco (South Congress) 3 blocks away and shop, dine and entertain yourself. Moments to downtown and 3 blocks to Stacy Park and a free, heated, year-round pool. The two queen size beds are comfy, with 2 full bathrooms for the 3 bedrooms. I also have a twin bed in the smaller bedroom, great for kids but comfy for adults too. Very sweet!

I maintain the property with the utmost care, cleanliness and professionalism.

Quaint and sweet, incredible location, giant live oak trees, outdoor spaces.

Love it!

Great Austin Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend during Austin City Limits music festival. The home is in good condition, and has all the amenities we needed to have a comfortable stay for 5 adults. Close proximity to the city and walkable to restaurants when it isn't too hot. Overall it was a great experience - we would stay at this property again! Thanks!

Awesome location in Austin!

  • 4 of 5

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!!

south congress area bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We found the area where the bungalow is to very convenient.The South Congress area has lots to do and downtown is only a twenty minute walk or there is easy mass transit.

When not out in the action,I really enjoyed sitting in the front yard,which is on a quiet street and has lots of plants and trees.

The bungalow had everything we needed and was very clean.The owner was really nice,and if we are ever back in Austin,we will try to stay there again.
