Overview

Austin Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 6

Bring a car if you want to, but you won't need it. From the SoCo Casita (City of Austin license # OL 2012127650) you are less than a five-minute stroll to SoCo's wide sidewalks lined with buskers, artists, craftspeople...many of Austin's best restaurants...and our great, home-grown, uniquely-Austin shops....Got your fill of that? Seven-tenths of a mile to the tree-canopied Town Lake hike and bike trail. Cruise the lake on a pedal-powered swan boat, pole board, kayak or canoe from Lone Star Riverboats. Rent a bicycle and dawdle under the trees less than another mile to gorgeous, huge, naturally-formed Barton Springs Pool. Back at home, stroll three to five blocks to white-tablecloth restaurants Vespaio, Woodland, Perla's... Or grab vittles from Thai food to BBQ to crepes and cupcakes at the Airstream foodie trailers.....Ready to party? A five-minute walk takes you to live music at the legendary Continental Club...Trophy's....Jovita's....Freddie's.....Dance beneath starlit skies and the ancient oaks at Guero's Taco Bar....Need even more variety? Downtown jumps at night and it's one mile away. Enjoy!

The best

the Casita is always our home away from home when visiting Austin. The property is close to everything and has all the comforts of home. We hate to leave but are looking forward to next time. Thanks Dale. You're a peach!

Super home, host & location! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Second stay at the Casita and I'm sure we'll be back again! The home is very clean, comfortable and a perfect location for exploring SoCo and downtown Austin on foot. Parking and getting around by car was equally convenient. The 3 bedrooms are all generously sized and super comfortable and the kitchen had everything we need. Within a couple blocks of excellent First and SoCo restaurants & food trucks. Live music venues (continental club) also very walkable. It's a hopping, funky neighborhood with tons to do day or night but also safe and fun for all ages, and a great way to absorb the culture of the city. Thank you Dale for being such a great host! We really appreciated the coffee and cinnamon rolls for breakfast and for taking the time to answer our questions. You have a lovely home in the best neighborhood in town and we can't wait to return!

Terrific!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house, in a fantastic location! I lived in Austin for much of the '70's, and for a while in the '80's, and return yearly for music, food, swimming, etc. THis time I brought my adult son and one of his friends. The house was perfect-- comfortable, super quiet, ultra-clean, and perfectly located (we could hear the live music from Guero's when we sat in the backyard. The south Congress area is a real treat- great restaurants everywhere (I discovered my new favorite mexican restaurant on S. 1st, also convenient to the house)…and fun shopping. I will definitely return. Dale is a great owner and very accommodating.

Perfect location! Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is in the perfect location, and provides a charm that makes you never want to leave. We were so pleased with the service we recieved from Dale (owner). Dale went out of his way to ensure that we were comfortable, knowledgable of the area, and to make sure that we felt right at home. Quality, caring, prompt, excellent customer sevice.

This home is located in the PERFECT location to experience Austin at its fullest. Just 2 blocks from Soco we were able to shop, enjoy nightlife, and eat some of the best food around. Just 2 blocks in the other direction is 1st street, where we fell in love with the Trailer Park (Trudys food Truck) and the Donought food truck( must try the Granny Apple Pie donought!)

With a short drive we hightly recommend checking out Lake Lady Bird ( paddleboarding), or even take a nice swim/hike at Barton Springs!

We just couldnt get enough of Austin. There is no doubt we will be returining to visit this great area and look forward to our stay again in this perfect home!

We are absolutely in love with this place

  • 5 of 5

The Casita is our home away from home when we visit Austin. We have stayed numerous times and each time we are greeted with kindness and very generous hospitality. This home has everything you will need and is located in the heart of Austin. Perfect place for a wonderful time. We will definitely be back Dale. You're a peach!
