What makes this apartment unique

This is the upstairs apartment in a brand new adorable bungalow in the heart of South Congress. Well decorated, alley access to South Congress, near trails and parks (and the trailer park eateries!) and very walkable to shopping and restaurants. Everything in the apartment is brand new. The windows give the impression of being in a very zen treehouse. Plenty of privacy. Also, I live downstairs and am available if there's anything you need that wasn't already stocked in the apartment.

Perfect place in Austin

The property was great. A perfect location for exploring the South Congress area. The home was very nicely decorated, clean and bright and the owner very responsive and flexible on check-in/out times. We even had a garage spot! I would stay here again for sure!!

Gorgeous Location!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely gorgeous! Perfect for a weekend getaway or anytime of stay, as it had plenty of amenities and everything was nice and organized. Within walking distance from many of the restaurants and businesses that South Congress has to offer. We rented scooters for the weekend so that is also nice that there is access this close to the place. Lots of privacy and lots of space! When my vacation came to an end, I did not want to leave this place! I would definitely stay here again!

Lovely space in great location

  • 5 of 5

First off I must say Holly is a great host! She was quick to respond to questions asked and was very accommodating with our check in/out times. The apartment is essentially brand new and had everything we needed. The space was private, clean, and fresh. Its located at the end of South Congress but you can easily walk to stores, restaurants, etc. We did drive a good bit but that’s only because we wanted to do a lot of exploring. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks Holly for a great experience!

Wonderful house with a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Really nice place in a nice area. It was easy to walk to places. We even walked downtown which took around 45 minutes in the heat. We loved our stay in Austin and would love to come back. Holly was very helpful and the apartment had a lot of really wonderful touches. It was nice to have a washer and dryer with the hot temps and rain.

The South Congress area of Austin is probably the most popular tourist area in the city. My house is 100 yards from S Congress with easy access to downtown. You can walk in 20 min or catch a cab / Lyft / bus across the street. Lady Bird Lake is on the way downtown and has a beautiful hike and bike trail with kayaking, canoeing and paddle boating easily accessible. South Congress Ave has about 20 different wonderful restaurants and bars, some of the best dining in the city, as well as a lot of shopping. The world famous Continental Club is a short walk and there are many celebrity sitings at restaurants like Guerro's and on South Congress.

Cancellations for special events must be given 6 weeks ahead of time for SXSW and a month ahead for ACL Fest and Formula 1 to receive a refund. Please purchase trip insurance if you are concerned you may need to cancel for these events. These are the busiest times of the year and I would lose a good deal of money if my place were to go unbooked due to a last minute cancelation. Thank you for your consideration. Also, Homeaway doesn't offer a way to show minimum stay requirements for weekend vs week day - right now i have a 2 night requirement for week day and a 3 night requirement for weekends. i apologize in advance if this causes confusion.
