SoCo Cottage w/ 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, sleeps 2-4 w/ 700 sf, washer/ dryer

Enjoy this spacious, well decorated comfortable bungalow one block from South Congress in the HEART of SOCO. Close to Zilker Park, Barton Hills, Travis Heights, and Downtown. Great place to stay for Music Festivals, right in the thick of it! Walk to great restaurants, nighttime entertainment, attractions, eclectic shopping, and more! Sink into the Tempur-Pedic mattress for a great night's sleep, then wake to walk to the hike and bike trail along Lake Ladybird. On the way back, stop to enjoy a great cup of joe at one of the many outstanding coffee shops and bistros. Have lunch at an acclaimed SoCo restaurant or try a food trailer for an exciting change of pace!

Of course you will enjoy all the comforts when you return from your adventures. Cozy well-appointed furnishings, a fully stocked kitchen, a 50' plasma HDTV in the living room with Blu ray and Smart amenities, and that wonderful Tempur-Pedic bed and 32' LCD HDTV in the bedroom! What's not to like?

Guestbook comments from the owner

I loved this place! It was everything they advertised. Very clean and comfy. Very roomy. I loved the leather furniture and large TV. The kitchen was fully stocked and they even had a washer and dryer! And the bed was so comfortable. I didn’t want to get up! But you can’t stay in bed when you’re in the heart of SoCo. There are great restaurants, café’s, and coffee shops all up and down the street. I loved browsing in the various shops that are all different from each other. Everything from a world bazaar type shop to an old fashioned candy shop to the biggest costume shop I’ve ever seen! And the food trailers were something you don’t usually see. They had everything from BBQ trailers to cupcake trailers. Zilker Park was less than 3 miles away (an easy walk) and you could even walk to the entertainment district downtown if you wanted. Austin is known for its downtown nightlife. The neighborhood was amazingly quiet though. You’d never know you were that close to so much energy. The owners were extremely accommodating and responded to every request very quickly. They are really nice people, who are a lot of fun on top of that! I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a weekend (or more) in the best part of Austin. Well worth the price!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a perfect place to stay if you are visiting Austin. The location is within walking distance to SoCo (and downtown as well for me - 2miles). The cottage had everything you need and is super comfortable (great bed is a plus)! The owners are also super helpful and accommodating. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!

Wonderful cottage in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week-long stay in this cottage (small house with covered parking, patio with table and chairs and a gas grill (although we didn't use the grill). It was extremely well equipped with everything from coffee to paper products. The cottage is very clean and very convenient to South Congress. So quiet that you wouldn't know that you were only a block away from SoCo. Bed is really comfortable; there was lots of storage for clothing, etc. The owners are wonderful and gracious. We look forward to staying here again. Highly recommended.

Great cottage, great location, great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage could not have been more perfect for our visit to Austin. Having a separate living space from the bedroom made it more desirable than a hotel. It was a short walk to shops and restaurants, so we hardly ever had to use our car, and free off-street parking was very nice to have. The hosts were very accommodating and friendly. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Austin.
