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.

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 and Joel purchased this townhome in 2009

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.

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.

BEAUTIFUL, MODERN, CHIC HOME IN TRAVIS HEIGHTS!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here based on a recommendation of a friend who lives in Austin and he definitely knew what I was looking for!

I was in Austin for a conference at the Convention Center for a week along with a co-worker. Instead of staying in separate hotel rooms $$$$, we opted to stay in The Green Door by SoCo Spaces.

The reservations, communication and support from the owners was incredible as was the neighborhood which was quiet and seemed far-removed from a bustling city.

No fault of the owners, we thought it would be smart to get a weeklong bus pass, but after a day ditched those for taxi 's on the Hail a Cab Austin app.

Even with cab fare, we came out far cheaper than a hotel, enjoyed having a house, kitchen, and laundry to ourselves and a quiet patio to chill out on in the evenings.

Highly recommend and hope to be back someday soon.

MODERN OASIS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at PLUM DOOR - Great Owners - Clear instructions for check-in and everything labeled. Kitchen, bathroom, laundry room - all supplies are provided. Ceiling fans and A/C. Clean, modern and comfortable. Large closets! Very close to South Congress. The only thing I would suggest would be a few comfy chairs for the living room. Great neighborhood. You just can't beat this value and group of properties.

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
We have vacationed in Austin quite a bit over the last few years – each time discovering new restaurants and music venues to enjoy and a favorite discovery we made a couple of years ago is SoCo Spaces’ Green Door. The owners, Dani and Joel have thought of everything to make their guests’ stay a relaxed and enjoyable one - truly a home - away - from - home! The furniture and beds are very comfortable and everything is spotless. The wonderful deck is great for leisurely coffee in the morning or unwinding after a day of exploring. The neighborhood is lovely and peaceful and it is an easy walk to South Congress.

The reservation process is easy and the area guide is very helpful - full of great suggestions.

We rave about our stays at the Green Door and will definitely be back!

AMAZING AUSTIN GET-AWAY!!

  • 5 of 5
For the last several years, we have stayed exclusively at SoCo spaces' properties whenever we have traveled to Austin. We have stayed at the Red House, the Green door, and the Orange door, and they are all fantastic!! Since we tend to travel with our toddler and our pooch, it has been so amazing to find a space that works so perfectly for us. Our baby can have his own room, so that we can actually get some sleep. We can have a refrigerator to store some on-hand emergency food. And, everyone has room to roam, play, and lounge. One time, we realized en route from Fort Worth to Austin that we forgot to pack our Pack N' Play. No worries...Dani and Joel to the rescue...they had one waiting for us at the house when we got there. They also always provide us with a high chair each visit, which is super-helpful.

All in all, the properties are exactly as described and pictured...they are beautiful, light, modern, and funky. The location of the properties CANNOT be beaten...they are all a short walk away from South Congress, which is home to a ton of delicious eateries and eclectic shops. Austin, in and of itself, is an incredible vacation destination, with a ton of things going on at all times. The Soco spaces' properties are an oasis in the middle of it all. Plus, Dani and Joel are so nice, attentive, available, and helpful throughout the entire duration of your stay. They listen to feedback provided in the guestbooks and have changed some features of the properties accordingly. As you can see, I cannot say enough nice things!!
