With an ideal location between South Congress and South Lamar, this rental is a quick walk or drive to countless attractions! Fair Bean Coffee is less than ½-block away, and the infamous Tommy Want Wingy food truck is 2 blocks away. Music lovers and barflies will feel right at home in this neighborhood—C-Boys Heart & Soul, One-2-One Bar, and the Continental Club Gallery are all within 1 mile.

The adjacent open-floor kitchen is clean and bright with refreshing lime-green and sun-yellow paint, stainless steel appliances, and everything you need for whipping up a delicious meal or a special dessert. Laundry/mud room off the kitchen has pale yellow paint and a little chalkboard; dining area has a tall cafe-style table.

An opulent master bedroom is an absolute sanctuary in deep red and blush pink set of by beautiful hardwood floors. Includes a queen-size bed, sweet floral wall art, and soft side table lighting. 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds and fun pops of blue and green amid creamy white walls and hardwood floors. Single bath is bright and clean with a shower/tub combo.

The big, fenced-in backyard is a great place to play or get some sun! Back deck and adjacent patio features a picnic table plus umbrella, cafe table and chairs, built-in benches, and Adirondack chairs. Lots of shade, and lots of space!

THE LOCATION

Be you a foodie, a music lover, a film buff, or an outdoor adventurer, Austin has something for everyone—and this remarkable home is near it all!

Nestled between South Congress and South Lamar, you're just a few minute's walk to tons of restaurants, music venues, and bars and a quick drive to kayaking, rock climbing, and the paths of Zilker Metropolitan Park. Have an intimate meal of tapas at Winebelly or a casual bite at hole-in-the-wall eateries Tommy Want Wingy and the Flying Carpet—each are less than ¼-mile away. The home is 9 minutes from downtown, 8 minutes from Zilker Park and on the bus route.

For an epic downtown tour, check out Congress Avenue Kayaks 1.6 miles away and acquaint yourself with the city by water! Satisfy your inner monkey at Texas Climbing Adventures only ½-mile away, or rent a boat at Zilker Park for a relaxing paddle down Barton Creek and the Colorado River.

Reviewer Comments:

We were very excited about this house and location, but I never received information the day of check-in as promised. I had to call twice and text Turnkey rentals. I received an access code that was wrong and finally got an email and text with the correct info. While I was on the phone they asked me the same security questions for the 3rd time - it was annoying. The house was clean and cute but couldn't find towels and the toilet made a terrible sound after flushing. It woke up the entire house. I called and texted for towels and it took the company 3 hours to get back to me. We finally found some in the laundry room that hopefully were clean.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed in this home while in-between houses when we were moving. It did the trick. It was four of us there. Two adults and two boys. The second room with twin beds was perfect for our boys. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to live and cook there. The only thing that surprised us was the fact that this Home allows dogs. The home was clean, but it was clear after staying a night or two that the duvets and blankets aren’t washed between stays as we all had dog hair all over our clothes. We are NOT pet owners so this was a problem for us. I contacted TurnKey and they brought us new sheets. I washed the blankets myself. We just took the duvets off the bed all together. It seems after someone stays with a pet the home needs a deeper cleaning. The master light flickered when it was on. There was no DVD player for our kids to watch movies. We used the AppleTV and Netflix instead.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a wonderful long weekend getaway in Austin, the location of this property is hard to beat! However, the home itself could do with a couple of updates-- top priority being the beds. There were 4 of us so all of the beds were full during our stay and we all experienced the same issues. The beds are flimsy, springy & offer no support. Seriously terrible sleep. Also, we were happy to have the extra 2 hours for complimentary late checkout but the cleaning service showed up about 30 minutes before our departure time and just parked on the curb and stayed there with their window rolled down as we were packing the car which struck us as a bit odd and unprofessional. Overall, the property is a great launching pad for whatever you have planned in Austin (we weren't there to hang at the house) but, I'm not sure we'd stay again unless a bedding upgrade was made. Thanks!

Quirky bungalow in convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect bungalow in a great location for a family of four. Brand name appliances, plenty of seating, and comfy beds with the softest sheets and pillows! Communication re: getting in and out was prompt and easy to understand. Last guest forgot to log out of his Apple account but a text to Turnkey resulted in an immediate call from IT with instructions that resolved the issue. You could easily relax and spend most of your time at the bungalow. But if you’re going to get out and explore Austin and the surrounding area, you’ll likely want to rent a car.

Two of us spent the Christmas holiday in this charming house, which had a fully equipped kitchen, gas grill in the backyard and all of the comforts of home. The neighborhood was quiet and the location made it easy to get to wherever we wanted. Enjoyed having Apple TV in the living room.
