This light-filled, modernized 1926 bungalow is the ideal place to relax after a day or night of exploring vibrant Austin.

Enjoy an iced tea or margarita in the private back yard - under a majestic 350 year old oak tree.

Beautiful Stacy Park is 3 blocks east and equipped with 3 acres of walking trails and a heated, spring-fed swimming pool. You'll also find a wading pool, playground, & friendly neighbors at Little Stacy Park - enough fun to entertain even the tiniest of travelers for hours.

We live in this neighborhood, we love this neighborhood. Once you've enjoyed a relaxing stay at the little Red House, we know you will too!

About Dani Rasmussen

We've lived in Austin since 1999 and we love it. We enjoy traveling (as often as possible) and meeting the travelers that grace our vacation rentals. Our other passions include graphic design, film making, publishing, and wake-surfing on lake Austin.

Dani Rasmussen purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Dani Rasmussen chose Austin

When we found it, the 'little red house' wasn't red. It was dirty grey and literally sinking into the ground. After a massive renovation effort we brought it back to life and restored it to better than original. Nearly 100 years old, this jewel of Texas history is the perfect place to call home as you explore Austin's most popular neighborhood.

What makes this cottage unique

RENT WITH CONFIDENCE

With 6 years of experience, Soco Spaces has always operated in compliance with the city of Austin legal requirements.

The City of Austin requires that Vacation rentals obtain a license for legal operation. Legal operations should have their license number on their listing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfection wrapped in a cute cottage surrounded by a beautiful, friendly city. I had never been in to Austin before and after this week it has come to the top of my favorites list. Your home is charming, the bed and the linens so comfortable, your furnishings mixing contemporary with the charm of the cottage… well, all I can keep thinking is the word perfection! Thank you for allowing this sweet space to be available.

Perfect place to stay in Austin

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely perfect location for a mom / daughter girl's weekend in Austin. We came from Michigan, Illinois and California to be together and had an awesome time around the South Congress area, which is just a couple of short blocks away from the house. In fact, almost everything is within walking distance, including the Capital, 6th Street, and the bats of the Congress Street Bridge. The house is adorable, well maintained and has great amenities. The neighborhood is one that anyone would love to live in, let alone, vacation in. Short drive to Barton Springs (like maybe 10 minutes) and another short drive to the University of Texas LBJ Library rounded out a great weekend. We felt very lucky to get this house and highly recommend it to anyone.

Wonderful Soco Space

  • 5 of 5
We loved this bungalow! The location to all of the Soco shops, bars and restaurants was so convenient. We were thrilled to be located so close to such a hot and happening spot in Austin. The accommodations and decor are something out of a magazine with all of the bright, light and soothing color tones. We especially enjoyed the music playing as we entered the space. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. We were able to enjoy a little time on the back patio under the large and beautiful trees. It is very clean and organized. Everything you need in a kitchen is available to you. The owners were incredibly easy to work with and covered every detail. We hope to come back and visit a Soco Spaces property in the future. Well done!

Perfect location in SOCO!

  • 5 of 5
Spent 5 nights in this adorable cottage and felt very relaxed and Austin-y! Dani and Joel are the hippest hosts! Loved the comfort of beds / master closet best! Would like a bigger TV and TV in bedrooms, but I admit I should be happy for solitude without that.

Owner's Response: Hi Jill, thanks for staying at Soco Spaces again. It was nice to meet you in person this time! Your timing was great because we were just thinking the same thing. We've ordered a new, large flat screen TV and will have it installed in the next week. Please come back to enjoy it, and the Red House, again soon - we love hosting returning guests!

Fantastic in-city get away

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled with the Red House. It enjoys an exceptional location, within a short walk (but not too short) from the SOCO shopping and dining area and a very short bus or car ride downtown. The house also has good access to I35 for those visiting San Antonio or other spots in Central Texas. The house has tons of charm and, although not large, is clean, very well appointed and comfortably accommodated our group of 4. During our relatively short stay, we met several neighbors, who were without exception very friendly and welcoming. Dani and Joel live in the neighborhood and respond very quickly to requests for info, etc.

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5
We escaped the cold weather in DC to celebrate our 40th birthdays in Austin! The Red House was the perfect spot to explore and enjoy Austin. It had everything we needed...it was cozy, bright and a great home away from home! If we make it back to Austin, we'd love to call The Red House home again. We met Joel upon our arrival and he could not have been more welcoming!

The Red House in SoCo

Thank you! We really enjoyed it. Having graduated from UT in the late 70's I have to say that you have captured the essence of the "true" spirit of the city in your wonderful red house. Rebecca and Riley
