WALK TO ALL THE BEST FOOD, MUSIC, AND FUN! GREAT HOUSE, AWESOME LOCATION!

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2BR/2BA comfortably accommodates 6. There is a kayak and fire pit to enjoy.

You will love this location! Walk to Austin's favorite hot spots for food and entertainment. Steps away from South Congress, the house easily sleeps up to 6 guests in 2 bedrooms with an additional 2 pull-out beds. Cheerful and clean with a large fenced-in backyard, the house can accommodate children of all ages. Washer and dryer unit is included.

Modern furnishings and a sunny dining area offer guests a comfortable getaway. One bedroom offers a queen-size bed and the other has a full-size, both dressed in plush, quality linens. The sofa pulls out into another queen bed and there is an available twin size roll-a-way, too. Flat screen TVs, HBO and Showtime, plus wi-fi are provided for downtime in between trips to nearby live music venues and beer gardens.

The spacious yard is perfect for a game of frisbee, horseshoes, and relaxing by the fire pit. A large kayak is available to take to one of the many nearby lakes (at your own risk, of course).

The house is a short walk away from many Austin landmarks such as Stacy Pool, which is spring fed and open year round,CBoys music, ACL-born Lucy's Fried Chicken, and The Continental Club, an Austin original for live, local music. The house is a great location for a relaxing vacation in Austin as well as being perfectly located for SXSW, ACL, and COTA events. Here is a nice link to a schedule of fun activities and festivals in Austin:

We love this house and are happy to share it with locals and visitors alike who want to stay close to Austin action. This is a perfect location for ACL, SXSW, FUN FUN FUN Fest, F-1, Longhorn Games or just a vacation spent in beautiful Austin, TX.

Leslie purchased this house in 1997

Leave the car parked and walk to enjoy local Austin culture. In less than 1 minute on foot you are on South Congress Avenue, a must see area for any traveler. The food trucks, patios, restaurants, bars, and live music venues are local favorites and are often featured on Food Network and the Travel Channel.

There is a food mart 2 doors down as well as a wine shop just a couple of blocks away. Also within walking distance is the Texas-original super market, H.E.B. Entertainment is all around and there is a spring fed city pool, 'Big Stacy', that is open year-round just 2 blocks from the front door. This location is great for families and friends looking to dive into Austin culture.

Great location for a stay in Austin!

This quaint home just off South Congress was a perfect place for our three day stay in Austin! Just around the corner from the great vibe of South Congress, we were within walking distance of plenty of action. Although we were directly across the street from a junior high, we weren't impacted at all.

The home was as advertised, nicely laid out, updated and with comfortable beds. The owner responded immediately when we let her know it was a little cold (~30 degrees in Austin during our stay). She brought over an extra blanket and a space heater.

Great place for a couple but could easily work for two couples since there are two bedrooms. You just have to share the one bathroom. The backyard horseshoes and fire ring didn't get used since it was so chilly but would be fun in the summer! Outstanding value for the price!

The location and price were outstanding. The home is small but the yard is big and has a fire pit. The cable tv was not working but a call to the homeowner and he fixed it the next day. You can walk to dinner and drinks anywhere on So. Congress. Good value for a cheap price.

My husband and I along with another couple rented the violet cottage for a long weekend away during ACL 2013 and we had a blast at the house!! FIrst off, the location can't be beat. We travel to Austin fairly often and this is far and away our favorite neighborhood. Easy walking distance to all S. Congress has to offer, especially Magnolia Cafe, one of our favorite places for good food any hour of the day. Also love to eat at S. Congress Cafe and Hopdoddy which are very near by. Got to swim at Big Stacy Pool and jog at the neighborhood park. The house is so cozy and offers everything that you need if you plan to prepare your own meals. The furniture is really nice, the beds were very comfortable and the sofa was too! Leslie, the owner, even stopped by to take care of a small problem we had and stayed quite a while to give us tips on her favorite places to eat and hang out in Austin. Also brought beer, which was much appreciated!!! Would love to come back again. One of the best times we've had in one of our favorite cities!!! Highly recommended!!!

Most of use had never been to Austin before this trip so we were not sure about how the location of the house would be. This house is in the perfect location to walk to the restaurants, shopping, and of course ice cream on South Congress. The back yard is a nice place to relax after a day of walking. The inside of the house is clean and stocked with pretty much anything you would need and the beds were so comfortable! We truly enjoyed our vacation weekend in Austin and now what we call the "Purple Palace". I would recommend this property to friends and I will be staying here again, my next trip to Austin. Thanks for the perfect spot!

What a super fun little house. Perfect location just minutes walking from all the happening SoCo shops, bars, and restaurants. Extremely clean and very cozy. Extremely comfortable bed and sofas. Kitchen, dining & living rooms were far beyond expectations. AC and fans were already on for us upon arrival, providing a much needed escape from the heat outside.
Cool yard to hang out in as well, loved the horse shoe pits.
Property management was extremely helpful and accommodating with our arrival and departure hours. I would highly recommend this property, and will absolutely stay here again the next time I'm in town.
Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us, John! You have been a pleasure to work with - we'd love to have you back at any of our homes, anytime.
