Bedrooms 7
Space 2,483 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

7 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 16

Our 7BR/4BA house and backyard cottage are nestled in Austin’s Travis Heights neighborhood, just one block from our city’s hippest spot: South Congress Ave. Your big group of up to 16 people can enjoy the best of SoCo’s restaurants, dive bars, food trucks, art galleries…and a lot more.

Take the cottage for yourself: this totally separate guest house includes its own bathroom, 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen and dining area…even a washer a dryer!


The main house has 5 bedrooms, including 4 on the first floor and a large, open loft upstairs. Each has its own queen-sized bed. Two additional air mattresses can sleep 2 more guests, for a total of 12 in the main house.

If you get tired of dining out in SoCo, stay in for a big, shared meal…no reservations required! The well-equipped, eat-in kitchen in the main house features stainless steel appliances, including a chef-grade gas range. If you need more burners for side dishes, there’s always the second kitchen in the guest cottage!

Dine together at the 6-person table in the dining room and/or outside on the deck’s large, picnic-style table (this space has a BBQ grill, too). Afterward, get cozy in the main living area with its two plush couches, large flat-screen cable TV, and unique wood-burning stove. Or wait the obligatory 30 minutes then hit the brand-new swimming pool!


The 2BR/1BA back cottage features quaint living and dining areas. The kitchen table has four wicker chairs, and two more can sit comfortably at our counter bar. Up to 4 can sleep here in 2 queen beds, each with their own separate bedroom. With access to a charcoal grill, a full washer/dryer, and a complete kitchen, you can tuck away in this private spot for as long as you want!


The deck area and brand new pool makes this incredible backyard a coveted Austin spot in its own right. Dip into the pool, flip burgers on the grill, and enjoy tree-shaded seclusion near Austin’s trendiest street.

Please note that the pool can be heated for an additional $50 per day.

Your vacation rental is just a couple houses back from South Congress—a place that embodies our town slogan: “Keep Austin Weird.” Enjoy the best dining, shopping, and people watching in the city. Stroll down the street to catch some street vendors and musicians before dinner at Guero's Taco Bar and a nightcap at C-Boy's Heart and Soul, a bar and hangout just a block from your house.

Stay in this amazing location and you won't ever have to move your car!

The City of Austin limits occupancy to six unrelated adults.

South Congress location

  • 4 of 5

We had family gathering. Plenty of sleeping rooms. Gathering space somewhat small,unless weather is good and you can go out to patio. Kitchen good but needs pot holders and kitchen towels. Hot tub was nice. Sure the pool would be great if weather was good. Many great restaurants and shops just a few blocks away.

Could be amazing!

  • 3 of 5

This house has charm and a great location. The beds were comfortable and the linens were nice however the hot water was an issue. Four people stayed over the weekend and by no means was the house to capacity. Not one of us had a hot shower that lasted longer than a few minutes, not enough hot water to wash and condition your hair. On that note, the hot tub never passed like-warm and the pool requires addition money if you'd like to use it. I could have saved $500 at another house but thought the hot tub was worth the extra money. for us it was a bit overpriced for what we had in amenities.

Owner's Response: Hi Poppi, thank you so much for the review, and while we are glad your stay was mostly great, we do apologize if the hot water heater was not functioning properly, and wish we had known during your stay so that we could have helped out. Here at TurnKey, it is our highest priority to make sure each guest has the best experience possible, and our 24/7 guest hotline is always available to help if anything comes up. Please know that we have since checked out the heater settings and made sure everything is working perfectly. By the way, you were wonderful guests and we're hopeful to hear from you again! -The TurnKey VR Team

Great House! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a perfect location that is within walking distance to many many great restaurants and shops on South Congress. It's also a quick couple mile car ride to 6th Street and Rainey Street. The pool was clutch for the hot Austin days!

Only downside to the trip was the late checkin time and early checkout time, especially a 10am check out time.

Nice house, great location

  • 4 of 5

Lots of shops and restaurants all around and minutes from downtown. The house was very clean and accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay here and the only negative thing that I could say was check out time was 10am. I guess I didn't read it correctly but for the price I paid I didn't find this very reasonable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the compliments, and we love to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Although 10 am is our standard check-out time, we certainly understand that guests prefer later departures and do our best to accomodate them when we can. In your case, we had guests arriving the same day you were leaving, so the cleaning crew needed time to prepare for the next group. Hopefully next time you stay with us, you can take advantage of our 12 pm check-out time if there aren't guests arriving that same day. By the way, you were perfect guests and we appreciate you taking care of our home as if it were your own. Please come stay again anytime! -The TurnKey VR Team

Bachelor party in Austin

  • 5 of 5

Rating Details:

The vacation rental was spotless.

I was very happy with the location.

I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is around 20 mins from the airport, so it was an easy (and affordable) cab ride. There is an enormous amount of space available between the main house and back house (we had 13 stay). The rooms are large, the house was extremely clean and the kitchen was very functional, with pots and pans etc. The location itself was excellent with lots of shops, restaurants and bars on Congress and then it was about a 40 min walk into downtown.

Bachelor party

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a bachelor party of this past weekend. Very spacious front house and back cottage for the party of 15. Location was pretty good. Walking distant to so good restaurants and chill bars.
