About Dani & Joel

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 & Joel purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Dani & Joel chose Austin

The eclectic, walking-neighborhood, combined with the classic mid-century lines of the home had us hooked!

The proximity to downtown and South Congress is just one of the area's attractions. The neighborhood has gently rolling hills offering views of downtown, is filled with gorgeous live oak trees, and has many recreation opportunities.

What makes this townhome unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

A wonderful trip to Austin. Your place was perfect - so comfortable, immaculate, great location… one of the best VRBO houses we have rented. Thank you for your attention to detail to make our stay so enjoyable. The house had everything we needed and your welcome.

Wonderful to come back to at the end of the day!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Green Door for a week in April. We travel a lot, and I have to say this was one of my favorite rentals ever. The central location is great for getting around Austin. The reservation process and communications regarding the rental were excellent. The townhouse is very well decorated, spotlessly clean, uncluttered, and very comfortable. It has all the amenities you would want: comfortable beds, nice linens and towels, a well appointed kitchen, an outdoor grill, a nice deck to relax on at the end of the day. The photos and description online are spot on.

The attention to detail by the owners is evident and makes the ambience of this place special. We arrived late at night, and Dani had left lights on for us, with the internet radio playing soft music...a very warm welcome. It was a pleasure to stay here. Kudos to Dani and Joel.

Awesome modern austin retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed during Sxsw with my friends at socospaces. The house was bright modern and clean and Dani thought of every possible thing a guest could need. The kitchen was fabulous for cooking and the French press coffee maker was great. The location is in a a beautiful residential neighborhood and was a perfect hideaway from the downtown madness. I rode my bike into town and it was about 15 minute easy commute. I love this house .

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at the Olive Door as well as the Green Door. In fact, we have friends that have also stayed at homes from the same owners and all of the properties met our full expectations. The location of the properties allowed us to bike and walk to all of our favorite places. The attention to details are far above any other rental homes we have used...the cleanliness, maintenance and customer service is superb. The owners go out of their way to make sure all is taken care of! I highly recommend any of the "Colored Doors" to everyone!

A Peaceful Home in a Lovely Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We rent this property when we come in for SXSW every year. It is clean, really well equipped, and close enough to the action that we can ride our bikes from the property to downtown. The beds are super comfortable and the space is clean and quiet. I've stayed in other SocoSpaces properties as well, and they are all this way. The property owners are wonderful and very attentive, and have always been helpful when we need anything. Love this space!

What a great property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Plum Door for the month of February while visiting our son and his family. I found SoCo thru an Internet search and immediately thought "wow"; what fabulously designed properties. The reality matched the listing photos to a "t"; no false advertising here! We could not have been happier with the property, the location, or the owners warm and accommodating customer service. We are already planning a return trip to Austin next year and we will most certainly stay at one of the SoCo properties. Our son and daughter-in-law visited us and loved it too. We would highly recommend SoCo Spaces to anyone needing a rental home in Austin. Dani and Joel are a pleasure; they are talented (Dani designed the homes I was told) and their care and pride in the homes shows. Well done!

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

As a former resident of Austin many years back, it was such a joy to come back to Travis Heights - this time with my family. As picky as we are, we loved our stay in your home! We loved the mid-century style to it, yet with the ever fun vibe that warms my heart. We felt right at home. Thank you for the great hospitality. We look forward to the next visit.
