Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 7

Our 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath updated mid-century home is tucked in a lush, wooded setting only a block from the shops, restaurants, and iconic “I Love You So Much” mural on South Congress.

Plan your day’s adventures from a large back deck with built-in seating or from one of two living areas, and unwind after a day on the town in the master bathroom’s soaking tub. With conveniences like a washer and dryer and remodeled kitchen, you can spend less time fretting about the day-to-day and more time enjoying your Austin getaway.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

Our house retains its original midcentury character while offering some updated amenities.

Between its two living spaces, there’s lots of room for the whole family or group to relax. The main living space boasts its original narrow board hardwood flooring and midcentury door, wood-paneled ceiling and stone feature wall. The décor here has a midcentury flavor, too: a perfect place for conversation, coffee, and possibly a classic cocktail.

The second living space is the TV room, with 42-inch flat-screen and fold out futon. Great for Saturday morning cartoons or Saturday night movies.

As for dining, the chef in your group will certainly enjoy our kitchen, complete with granite countertops, gas range, bar seating for two and plenty of cabinet space. Enjoy your meals at the mid-century modern table in the adjacent dining area. You’ll find a full bath on the main floor, as well.

Our three upstairs bedrooms boast plenty of light and comfort. The master, with vaulted ceilings and big windows, comes furnished with a queen-size bed. Enjoy your morning coffee on the private balcony here, complete with Adirondack chairs, or soak in the jetted tub in the en-suite half-bath. The master also has direct access to the jack-and-jill full upstairs bath, with stone tile step-in shower.

The second bedroom comes furnished with a queen bed, while the third bedroom, also with vaulted ceilings, has two twins: perfect for kids and teens.

Our house also boasts a large back deck with plenty of seating and lush, green yard space, making it an ideal spot for lawn games and other fun group activities.

OUR LOCATION

We’re only a block away from the shops, restaurants, and iconic “I Love You So Much” mural on South Congress. Torchy’s Tacos is around the block, and local favorites South Congress Cafe, Hopdoddy’s Burger Bar, Guero’s, and more are just minutes away on foot.

If you’re looking to find out what keeps Austin weird, we’re also close to lots of unique shops like Uncommon Objects, Monkey See Monkey Do, South Congress Books, and lots more.

Reviewer Comments:

This roomy house was the perfect spot for us to stay right before Christmas! I was in town for work but I brought the family and they were able to walk to all of the shops and restaurants on South Congress to get their last minute shopping in and enjoy Austin. The location is conveniently located to downtown and centrally located so you can get anywhere fairly rapidly. The house itself if gorgeous and well-lit during the day without the need for lights. We had a minor issue with the water heater (which is brand new) but TurnKey was incredibly responsive to calls. Even the neighbors are nice! I highly recommend this property if you're looking to spend some quality time in Austin!

Terrific location

  • 4 of 5

The location is fantastic being one block off of Congress, so there are tons of options within a short walk for coffee, lunch, or dinner. I would highly recommend it from that perspective. The house has an odd layout and lacks some features you might see in other homes (furniture, televisions, cable), but I would recommend someone stay here particularly for the price.

We had some water issues but they were able to help right away. No issues at all. Very clean property! Great location near Congress street! I just wish they were a little bit flexible with check out time. We wanted to extend check out a couple hours since our flight was leaving at 1pm and were told that we would have to extend another day if we wanted to do that.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed with a group of friends for a weekend and had a great time! The location couldn't be better: it's just a block off of Congress, so you can easily walk to bars and restaurants! The house itself was also nice: very big, with a nice back porch and a nice kitchen. You are quite close to neighbors, so if you are planning on staying on the deck at night they (and you) may have a problem. The only other issue we had was with the cleanliness: the property wasn't dirty but there were areas with cobwebs and an odd smell when we arrived. Additionally, we found at least three different cockroaches during our stay, which are tough to keep out during the summer I'm sure but nevertheless did make us a little uneasy. Overall a fantastic place, despite the minor cleanliness issues. Would definitely recommend!

Reviewer Comments:

Roaches were in the Home. Given the 100 degree temps, the HBAC units were woefully inadequate. At the price point, it should not matter what temperature a customer likes. There is not enough light in the home. There is not enough furniture in the home. Basic cable would be nice. Cheap owner we guessed. I won't stay in this particular rental unit again. The location was perfect for my Families visit to Austin. I will rent again in the South Congress area. Great Staff! Very Heloful. Home Away is a " keeper" for this business traveler.
