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.

                                                            This property is beautiful, clean, and well maintained. Nestled in the tree tops of one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Austin it is also only blocks from South Congress and downtown. The owner is gracious and helpful. I would stay here agin for sure!

                                                            The perfect place to relax!

                                                            Loved our stay! Wonderful neighborhood, near great eats and shops. Would rebook in a heartbeat!

                                                            Perfect place for the best of Austin

                                                            My wife, adult musician son, and I stayed at Laura's unit over the Labor Day weekend. It is perfectly located in a quiet wooded neighborhood just a 5 minute or so walk from the food, music, and fun of South Congress. We used the Austin bike share system with several nearby stations to ride to Zilker Park, Barton Springs, and all up and down Lady Bird Lake, and we used Lyft to get to great places north of the lake. Laura's unit was very clean, plus has a beautiful pool in the backyard for cooling off and relaxing during the hot Austin summer. All in all, a great stay and highly recommended.

                                                            Privacy in the treetops w/a pool !

                                                            Close to most everything that is eclectic Austin

                                                            Awesome location and wonderfully set up.

                                                            Great place to stay in Austin

                                                            Great location and cute apartment

                                                            Carolyn B.

                                                            Laura communicated with us perfectly. The location of this apt is close to everything. Some places were even walking distance. The pool was nice but we didn't use it much. There were too many mosquitoes around. The apt itself is cute and very comfortable. We dealt with some rain last night but were able to watch some on demand tv. I would recommend this place without hesitation for anyone looking to check out Austin for a few days or a week.
