We love Austin and with this property being just a block away from the center hub of South Congress and .4 miles from downtown, it is so wonderful to be able to offer it to guests! We have loved having families, guests in town for weddings, UT football fans, visitors to the convention center here and more.
Nicole purchased this Guest House in 2013
Why Nicole chose Greater South River City
All of the most fabulous areas of Austin are very accessible from this vacation rental without your needing a car and as well, you are only .4 miles from downtown Austin. I was able to put my imagination and care into this property and I love sharing that with guests. I have been so lucky to have had truly amazing guests to my properties!
What makes this Guest House unique
Within a ONE block walk to South Congress, you can: Walk to the “Farm to Market Grocery Store” is just two blocks from the house and very convenient specializing in delicious and special delights as well as the basics. Truly enjoy live music any night of the week at Austin’s famous Continental Club "the granddaddy of local music venues”, C-boys Heart & Soul Bar or outdoors at Guero’s Mexican Restaurant which are all within a few blocks. Experience some of the best Italian cuisine at Austin’s Vespaio Italian Restaurant, Botticelli’s or Enoteca Italian Restaurant. Dine at Perla’s where they specialize in high-end cuisine and have the loveliest of outdoor patios (my personal favorite at dusk or evening). Venture out for casual dining and grab a delicious slice of pizza at Home Slice Pizza (if gluten free Southside Pizza is just up the street), Hop Doddy's famous hamburgers, many trailer eateries, or the newest Torchy’s Tacos, and so many more! Start your day off with the upscale Jane’s Restaurant just on the corner for weekend brunch or Magnolia Cafe for their diner-style breakfast on weekdays or weekends. Walk to grab your morning coffee at Jo’s Coffee, Mananas or Tom’s Coffee Shop. Go to one of the best Happy Hours in Austin at South Congress Hotel, which is only a four block walk. Enjoy ice cream at Amy's Ice Cream, grab a cupcake at the Hey Cupcake! trailer, or go into the coolest candy shop, Big Top Candy Store (my kid’s favorite)! Shop trendy and fabulous stores like Uncommon Objects, Yard Dog Art Gallery, Creations Boutique, as lovely storefronts line the street left and right. If you would like a very cozy and secluded stay with access to South Congress just a block away, read above and this might be your home during your stay in Austin!

My wife and I made our first trip to Austin and had a blast! Great food, great music, and great weather. What made this trip so nice was staying at this great house. The location is perfect. You are literally two blocks from amazing restaurants, clubs, and shops. There was no reason for a car we could walk just about everywhere. The guest house was super comfortable, decorated really cool and had everything that we needed. Nicole was great! She answered every question that we had and took care of all our needs. We will definitely recommend this property to any of our friends heading to Austin and we would certainly stay here again.
Thank you :) You were so lovely; we would love to have you back!
Great Location & Cozy-Clean
The apartment is in a great location. We were walking/biking distance to just about everything. It was very clean & comfortable. Nicole was prompt to answer questions. The only drawback is that you only get one parking space & its parallel parking, kinda difficult to park when you drive an SUV with a 5 bike-rack attached. 2 parking spots would’ve been ideal since the unit can accommodate 6 people. However, there was additional parking on the side street, so not too bad. I would definitely recommend this unit to others.
Driving an SUV with a 5 bike-rack would be challenging to park pretty much anywhere in a thriving city, especially a block to the most popular street in Austin where everyone wants to visit. 90% of the homes in this area do not even have a driveway yet I give up one of my own two private parking spaces for my guests to have the luxury of having one car be a few steps to the entrance of the guesthouse. In fact, I park on the street personally so that my guests have this space. I am sorry that my prompt responses, and great location and it being cozy and clean were not enough for a 5 star review because of your SUV with a 5 bike-rack. I really take pride in giving everything I can to my guests.
Home Away From Home
We felt welcomed from the moment we stepped through the door! Perfect location near SOCO. As “long term” (two weeks) residents we did a fair bit of cooking and found everything we needed. So many nice touches! Very comfortable.
You could not ask for a better location. Walking distance to everything on South Congress. Stay was perfect and the apartment was very clean and well kept. Will definitely stay here again.
Lovely home in great location
We rented the main house + this guest cottage for a bachelorette and it was absolutely perfect. The home is beautiful and spacious. The beds were extremely comfortable, there were enough bathrooms for our size group. The location of he home is convenient to the bars & restaurants. Would definitely recommend!
Location + classy + perfection
Me and my husband and two small kids 5 and under stayed here for a long weekend. The location was a block off the action of Soco, so having a parking spot, and being able to walk a lot of places was great. The apartment was very clean, decorated beautifully, not cramped at all, with comfy beds and even some toys for the kids to play with! Access into the apartment was seamless, and the instructions for our stay were clear and easy. Next time we come to town if this place is available we would definitely love to stay here again!
Wow, that is such a wonderful review! It is very kind for you to take the time. We would love to have you back!
There are many amazing parks, water holes, public pools, areas to hike near the property. At the same time, the property is short walk from the hippest and most popular streets in Austin (South Congress).
