FANTASTIC SOCO STUDIO

Austin Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio with loft, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Absolutely adorable former photo studio, now a brand new vacation rental. Located in the hippest part of town – SOCO (South Congress) with great access to everything that's best about Austin--shopping, restaurants, bars, and major music events.

The studio is an absolute jewel, with round windows, a loft bedroom, and high ceilings downstairs. The space super light and airy, and a happy laid-back Austin vibe. Opens onto a covered deck. Entry through a garden walkway. A real pleasure to be in!

Sleeps 2 or 3 comfortably, 5 if you really like each other.

New bathroom and kitchen. Private entrance, gardens, deck with gas grill, round windows, new high efficiency heat and air, backs onto a creek for great privacy, in a sweet central neighborhood. Super cute hipster music decor.

Suitability:
  • Singles
  • Groups
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

I'm a long-term South Austinite, love my hood, know my way around and am willing to share my secrets on life in Austin. I'm a visual artist, working and living in Austin for 25+ years. I love to share my city!

Jana Birchum purchased this studio in 2002

This is the hippest, coolest place in Austin, with a fantastic, joyous feel. Furnishings are modern and comfortable, with gorgeous photos from local music shows and artists. The neighborhood is close in, mellow and sweet. It's a great place to stay.

Private gardens and deck, unique style and design, great location. Super fun.

CONFORTABLE AND FUN HOME BASE IN AUSTIN

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I had a fabulous stay in Austin at this property. Parking on the street was fine. Beds were comfortable. Amenities more than met our needs. Very clean and spacious. Please note the stairs to the upstairs (where the sinlge bed and bathroom is) is more a ladder than stairs (VERY steep) so caution is required. We used this as a home base for seeing Austin (definitely check out Torchy's Tacos and Bouldin Cafe close by) as well as San Antonio, Fort Worth, and Hill Country. Thanks, Janna, for a great experience.

WONDERFUL WONDERFUL WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
This property was wonderful in every aspect. Conveniently located to EVERYTHING (South Congress ROCKS), Jana and her two dogs were a joy the studio was clean, comfortable and homey. Having a side porch to eat on or sit in the morning for coffee at was wonderful. I can't recommend this enough for a couple who just want to get away. My only disspointment is that it does not have a stove, just a hotplate and microwave. But that is VERY MINOR. Everything else was awesome. .

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Jane! I want everyone to enjoy the Studio as much as you all did!

I'll definitely consider upgrading the cooking situtation, if that's what people want. I understand about cooking on a hotplate, tho it's a really nice hotplate. :)

Thanks again!

PERFECT!!!

The studio was perfect and Jana was a lovely host. It was a beautiful and comfortable space with everything we needed; if Austin wasn't such an awesome city we would have been happy hanging inside the whole time! Highly, highly recommend!

AUSTIN FLARE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I absolutely loved Jana's studio space. It was eclectic, private, clean, spacious, and very comfortable. We really loved how conveniently located to South Congress and all it's fun vintage shops and yummy eateries (Magnolia Cafe, New India, and Home Slice), and to East 6th and Lamar for Music.

Jana and her two pups were friendly and non-obtrusive. We would highly recommend this property as a nice little home away from home.

Thanks Jana, Barkley & Oscar!!

FUNKY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I (plus our new puppy) stayed here for two and a half weeks before we could move into our new place. As we were new to Austin, we couldn't have picked a more fantastic location to experience the city. Close to all the food trucks, near downtown, and had all the modern conveniences nearby (grocery store, laundromat, etc). Quiet street, great patio and right in the heart of it all. A wonderful temporary "home" for us!
