Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This upstairs duplex was in a great location right next to South Congress and down the street from 1st. Easy to walk to fun restaurants, bars and live music. I would definitely recommend this property, it was clean, updated and comfortable. The only thing was the dog barking next door, I would recommend bringing ear plugs.

Owner's Response: Thanks Katherine and sorry about the dog! That was very unusual. The owner was sick and didn’t walk him that weekend. I will speak to her about it.

Great space! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

SOCO area was cool. Plenty of stuff within walking distance (Torchy's Tacos, El Guero, Continental Club). You can walk to 6th street if you're up for it (5-6 miles round trip).

Place was clean and well decorated. Comfortable bed and best shower head ever!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this rental. Holly was very quick to respond with any questions we had as well as accommodate our need for check in/out times. The place had a very warm and welcoming feel to it, very much a home like feel. It was a perfect location, walking distance to many restaurants, shops and nightlife. We travel quite a bit for business and look forward to staying here again when we are in Austin. Thank you Holly for letting us stay in your home, we very much look forward to the next time.

Great way to spend a weekend in South Austin.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to spend the weekend in Austin for her birthday. This place was perfect for what we needed and we enjoyed walking up and down South Congress eating, drinking and checking out the local shops. Spent most of the day Saturday at Barton Springs and Lady Bird Lake which are both super close. Overall great time and great place to stay. We highly recommend dinner at Mattie's which is in the neighborhood.

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.

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 or 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.

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.
