About Justin Hilton
i am a designer and writer living between San Francisco , Hawaii, Taos, and Austin with frequent trips to India. I love animals and nature. I'm also a huge fan of mountain biking, snowboarding and yoga. We put lots of love and thought into the creation of the SOCO Studio and feel deeply honored to get to share it with you. Looking forward to being in touch and getting to hear your story as well. Warmly, Justin
Justin Hilton purchased this House in 2011
Why Justin Hilton chose Greater South River City
I grew up in Austin and after traveling around the world have found no place like it. It was always my dream to have a place in SOCO district . I choose the Drake property because its surrounded by huge oaks and has the feeling of being in a tree but its steps away from Austins best food and entertainment options .It;s a short drive to Famous Barton Springs and less than a 5 minute bike ride to the amazing Lady Bird lake hike and bike trail and just a little further to the 2nd, 4th and 6th street entertainment districts .
What makes this House unique
There are too many amazing qualities to list about the Soco Studio but one thing we hear constantly is that it has the the worlds coolest shower - we look forward to hearing how you like it

Absolutely loved it
The place was super clean and fresh. It wasn't far from Congress. We could walk there and back no problem at all. We loved the room. It rained all day one of the days we were here and we just enjoyed staying in and relaxing. The bed was super comfortable. The shower was amazing! Definitely would recommend this place to everyone!
Very nice stay, well maintained property , very quiet really enjoyed our stay and the area of south Congress.
Thank you Robert for your review, it was a pleasure to host you, I am so happy to hear that you had enjoyed our place, hope to see you soon again.
Third time, still completely charmed.
We are repeat guests to this property. Please find our previous reviews for more details behind our continuously high ratings. This time around I would simply like to point out that you cannot beat this neighborhood. Travis Heights is a PERFECT location from which to explore Austin. Quiet and beautiful, and chalk-full of interesting homes, but at the same time a 5 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of South Congress. Fifteen minutes and you'll be strolling the trails at Lady Bird Lake. Although we love to walk the area (our Fitbits love Austin almost as much as we do) we still always rent a car. We appreciate how quickly we can get on the I-35 when we want to explore some barbecue joints down Lockhart way, head up to North Loop area to see a film or track down a cool cocktail bar, or see what's up in hip and happening East Austin. This property is our home away from home when we come to Austin, and we highly recommend it.
We just loved it
This place suited us down to the ground. It was on fire outside weatherwise but the treehouse was cool and calm and a cocoon from the hustle in Soco. We ate at Gueros, went dancing at a few clubs, shopped at the cute shops and took the local bus a couple of times to 6th and also to see the bats. We actually cooked a meal here and slept well. Really recommend this place for comfort and location.
We were quite pleased with our stay! It is a quick walk to Congress or a quick ride to downtown (downtown is also walkable, but it is a little over a mile). It is also easy to get in and out of town avoiding some busier areas from this location.
We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The patio was perfect for an evening cocktail before heading to dinner. While it does not have a full kitchen, we thought we might use the hot plate or coffee maker along the way. However, with so many amazing food options nearby we didn't touch the kitchen area!
We would definitely return for future visits!
Cute studio with the best location!
We loved our stay at "our tree house" . Such a lovely place with everything you need in it. The location for us was the best! We enjoyed the shower soooo much and having our breakfast out in the balcony while listening the birds and watching the squirrels. We highly recommend it!!!
Soco is the heart and soul of Austin with countless clubs and fantastic restaurants all within walking distance.
