This charming bungalow is located in the Travis Heights neighborhood - just south of downtown and just east of the trendy South Congress (SoCo) shopping district. Built in 1949 by a local craftsman this 3 BR/2 BA 2,000 sq ft home features front work of native Texas limestone and decorative stucco on the remaining sides.

On the main floor there is a living room with a large picture window over looking the tree-lined street and a dining room that opens on to a second-story deck. There's also a furnished vintage kitchen updated to include a microwave/convection oven and a 5-burner gas range.

Close to South Congress Ave, downtown Austin and Lady Bird lake this location is perfect for visitors interested in all that Austin has to offer.

It's even a quick trip to Memorial Stadium on UT game days!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time "wintering" in your lovely vacation home. Every need was anticipated. What a great house! And what a fun, interesting area. We're already planning our next trip to beautiful always surprising Austin.

I bought this house in January of 1998 - just as the neighborhoods around downtown Austin were experiencing a true renaissance. The home was purchased from the daughter of the original owner and I've done my best to stay true to the 1940's styling (with a few modern updates, of course). In June of 2008 I moved a bit further north but decided to keep this house. We enjoy it on open weekends and someday hope to retire here.

EXCELLENT LOCATION IN AUSTIN

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful 2 weeks in this house, which is ideally located for all Austin has to offer. The house is well stocked, in a great, safe neighborhood. It has a nice deck and parking off the rear of the house, with a fenced yard, which our dog thoroughly enjoyed.

Unfortunately the weather was less than perfect while we were there, but the house was warm and cozy. We really appreciated the comfortable beds, great linens and towels and the ease of working with Sam on the booking. We will definitely return to this house on our next trip to Austin.

PERFECT PROPERTY FOR OUR GIRL'S GETAWAY WEEKEND!

Perfect Property for our Girl's Getaway Weekend!
  • 5 of 5
For our annual Getaway Weekend this year we chose Austin - a city 3 of the 4 of us had never been to, so we had absolutely no clue where we should stay. We considered both hotels and rentals, and decided on this one. All of us were so happy with our choice! This 3 bedroom home seemed like an excellent location for our purposes (we did have a rental car too). I would actually say that I think the property looks even better in person on the inside than in the photos. I was surprised by how classy the furnishings were. The home has a very elegant look. I chose the 2nd upstairs bedroom and my bed was a little slice of heaven - so incredibly comfortable - I was wishing I had just come to sleep! Of the two who slept in the downstairs bedroom (very large), one of them opted to use the futon and she said it was quite comfortable. The futon mattress was far thicker than an ordinary futon. There were so many great amenities in the house (like board games and DVDs) that it was almost a shame we hadn't come just to stay inside! But we had a whole city to see and this "Beautiful Bungalow" was in a very convenient location. There are a lot of fun shops in the South Congress area which is actually quite close to the house. And we thought the South Congress Cafe was so unbelievably delicious we did breakfast there twice! I must also say that I loved the fact that the front door has a key code entrance. All 4 of us did end up coming and going at the same time, but it was nice to know that if anyone had wanted to head back early, they would have still been able to get into the house. The owner was also very easy to work with and accommodating. Final payment was via phone, so we had to arrange a time to have the call. This house really worked out perfectly and it was quite clean. I would absolutely recommend it to friends and give it an excellent rating without a moment's hesitation.

FAMILY WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience with a VRBO rental and everything was wonderful! The house was clean, comfy, and homey; the owner was very easy to work with; and the location was convenient. Our family had a fantastic time and are already talking about a return trip!

WONDERFUL PLACE, MUCH TO DO NEARBY

  • 5 of 5
The property was very clean and well maintained. Our family (my wife & I and two children and their spouses) were comfortable in our bedrooms. The living area was spacious and allowed us to relax comfortably. It is located very near South Congress (Soco). There is an abundance of shops & food there. Also, Zilker Park is nearby (great park for bike riding and canoeing). Just a little farther is the downtown area and 6th street. We would recommend the evening leaving of the bats from under the bridge (Google "Austin bats").

Austin is a great place to visit, and this house is a great place to stay.

LOVE THIS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
my family stayed here on two separate occasions a few months apart: the first when we were house hunting in ATX and again when we were actually meeting the movers at our new home. everything was stress free and easy (during an otherwise very stressful time!). the property was centrally located and clean clean clean clean clean. we had infant twins at the time and this house was perfect (two pack n plays on site! that alone saved hours of stress :)). although we now have a guest room, I would send visiting friends and family to stay here in a heartbeat and wish I myself had a reason to visit again. thank you, sam!

EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR A WEEKEND IN AUSTIN!

  • 5 of 5
We had several family members coming in for a wedding in Austin, and this house was the perfect solution! It was clean, well-kept and very comfortable. Sam was easy to get in touch with and happy to help. The location is great and the house had everything we needed, including beach towels for our boat excursion on Town Lake. And we got to bring our dog, which is always a plus. We will definitely stay there again!
