About the property

Studio, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This newly remodeled upstairs studio is walking distance to everything downtown and in the South Congress (SoCo) district. Experience Austin by staying in this wonderful old neighborhood, which is close to live music, food, culture, history and recreation. The light filled 2-bedroom studio is upstairs in my home. With off-street parking and a private exterior entrance it is the perfect place to relax after a day of exploring Austin. Gaze out to the two majestic 200-year old oak trees or enjoy yourself by sitting out in the shady backyard patio. A stroll 3 blocks west takes you to lively South Congress Avenue filled with fantastic restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and music venues. The house has a vintage pool which is filled in the summer months for a dip but if you are a swimmer Big Stacy Park and pool is a short walk away with its year round pool which is fed by natural hot springs in the winter months. The park also has over 3 acres of walking trails. Additional swimming and recreation is but a short drive away at Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool. If you are a runner or walker Lady Bird Lake trail is just a couple of blocks away for a jog or walk, and is home to Austin's famous Congress Avenue bat colony. The entertaining Second, Warehouse, and Sixth Street districts downtown are a 3-minute bus/cab ride or a 15 minute walk. Also close by are Auditorium Shores, the Convention Center, Whole Foods Market, the Long Performing Arts Center, the Capitol and much more.

The studio has two private bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and the other with a full size. . A small refrigerator, coffee/tea maker and microwave are provided for convenience or take the beautiful five minute walk up to Jo’s Coffee shop or the numerous South Congress restaurants for wonderful breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Austin Bergstrom Intl. airport is only 20 minutes away ($30 cab ride).

Owners are available to provide guests with suggestions on restaurant options, live music venues and much more!

Great place to stay for Music Festivals, right in the heart of it! ACL.... Less than 3 miles. SXSW....Just blocks away to enjoy a multitude of the entertainment venues.

About Laura Toups

I have lived in Austin for over 30 years and love the creativity and vibrance of this city.

Laura Toups purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Laura Toups chose Greater South River City

I created this new space upstairs to provide others an opportunity to experience Austin while staying in a quiet special place. If desired, I am happy to assist in helping you find the unique places in Austin during your stay.

What makes this apartment unique

Why do I love where I live? It is the wonderful location close to all the city benefits while having my own oasis of nature in this heart of the city. I love how quiet it is while still being a short 10 minute walk to the lively people place of S. Congress or downtown......come stay here and see what I mean.....see you soon.

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable rooms, views of lovely garden and pool. We enjoyed walking and kayaking at Lady Bird Lake, relaxing inthe garden and cooling off in the swimming pool. We were in town for a tournament at UT and appreciated our host’s flexibility. Thank you, Laura!

Once Again, SoCo Hideaway Charms

This was our fourth (fifth?) stay here and it was marvelous. Consistently delightful, charmingly hidden, wonderfully quiet, yet close to everything.
