Austin Bungalow Rental Photos and Description
Austin's coolest neighborhood, steps from all that Austin has to offer.
The real South Congress (SoCo) area only 2.5 blocks to the heart of South Congress and 2.5 blocks to the burgeoning tourist promenade of historical South First (SoFi). (Many others listed as 'SoCo' are a dozen blocks from Congress.) Perfect festival home base! Flat rate event pricing for a range of dates allows guests optimum flexibility: come and go as you please and as your schedule allows.
This home is perfectly located to access everything that cool, hip and funky about Austin. It's about a 30 minute walk to the Capitol but frequent Rapid-Transit buses whisk you there in no time.
The house sleeps up to seven, with 3 bedrooms and two full baths, plus two living areas. High-threadcount sheets, down pillows and comforters (non-down available, too), supple leather furniture, and fluffy towels add to your and your guests' comfort.
Spacious for entertaining, with a generous kitchen, the house has a large back deck and a good sized, private back yard, rare in this area.
Off-street parking is available for 3 vehicles, but you really don't need a car: you are in walking distance, a bike ride or a cheap cab ride to everything that makes Austin what it is! Bike rental stand is only a couple of blocks away.

Why Preston & Paula chose Austin
Walk to any type of attraction, from fine dining to funky food trailers, great music, spring-fed pools, hiking trails around the lake, and downtown. Easy walking or bus access to downtown. Park your own car in the covered carport and avoid searching for a free parking spot. Enjoy the tourist-friendly South Congress walking strip with its eclectic shops, art galleries, eateries, and music then stumble a few short blocks to relax in our peaceful home on a remarkably quiet street despite its central location. Enjoy the open space with friends and family preparing delicious meals to share in the vaulted, light-filled dining room or spacious deck.
Privacy: The home has two wings each with its own bathroom and access to outdoors for optimal privacy.
Neighborhood: The home sits in a historic neighborhood with friendly neighbors.
Nearby Attractions: Just north, along downtown, is Austin's famous Lady Bird Lake running trail. And the spring-fed Barton Springs Pool is must visit, located across from Zilker Park, the annual venue for the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
