About Holly

House has not been landscaped yet,it is in the works. I will be growing veggies in the back and you can help yourself! I am a real estate agent and if you are thinking of moving here I am happy to help you out in any way I can. I love animals and just lost my cherished cat before moving in, so I would love to see a smiling furry face every so often, would even help with dog walking.

Holly purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Holly chose Austin

Brand new, Great walkable location to downtown and lake, amenities! Alarm! Stylish amd cozy. Garage space. quiet street, nice neighbors. whole house Air purification system, pets considered.

What makes this bungalow unique

This is the upstairs apartment in a brand new adorable bungalow in the heart of South Congress. Well decorated, alley access to South Congress, near trails and parks (and the trailer park eateries!) and very walkable to shopping and restaurants. Except the dishes, everything in the apartment is brand new. The windows give the impression of being in a very zen treehouse. Plenty of privacy. Also, I live downstairs and am available if there's anything you need that wasn't already stocked in the apartment.

Great location for ACL

Great space for 2 couples. Not too far from Zilker. Close to good restaurants or an HEB if you want to stay in and dine.

Fantastic apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is in a great location! An easy walk to great restaurants and shopping. The apartment was very clean, bright and stylishly decorated. The garage parking was a definite plus, especially in the Austin summer heat. If we are ever back in Austin, we would not hesitate to stay here again!

Do we have to leave?!?!?!?!

  • 5 of 5
This home away from home was perfect. There were two of us and we both enjoyed our stay.

The home has everything you need. A well appointed kitchen, good sized living room, dining area, private entry, tons of light, clean and bright bathroom and a ton of closet space.

The location is amazing, It is in between S. 1st and South Congress so no matter which way you walked you were close to restaurants and shopping. Easy walk to HEB and a cute little market with great breakfast tacos. The bus is about 100 yards away and it is one of the main arteries of the bus line and can get you anywhere. It was a very safe area and would not feel uncomfortable walking around at any time of night. And it was really quiet. If you know Austin you know it can get loud!

We didn't have a car and with a location this good we didn't need one. I do with Austin would get Uber. The taxis are a pain and we almost died going to Uchi (go to Uchi by the way).

Holly the owner was great and even though we never ended up running into each other she was amazingly easy to work with and gave some great recommendations on where to eat.

Some little extras that were great...There was an espresso maker (pod style so even I could figure it out) with little espresso cups YUM...The tv channel selection was really good...blackout windows for sleeping late...easy to open windows for the Austin breezes...a cooler to take to the Salt Lick (go to the Salt Lick)...Local area info on the small bar...front and back entrance to the house.

I loved this place and would recommend it to anyone! Thank you Holly!!!

Great SoCo location, would stay again!

  • 4 of 5
Pros: Great location, upstairs living feels like your own small home, furniture and decorations are high end, and so nice to have own washer/dryer in unit
Cons: Windows are a bit drafty so noise from South Congress and cold comes through, shower could have been warmer, and hard to roll luggage over loose/placed stone walkway

Owner's Response: Thank you! I rarely hear anything from the street, but it depends on the weekend (I think you were here Marathon weekend which was packed!). And the windows are new and well insulated, but there are 4 of them in the bedroom. I will check the water heater!

Awesome in Austin

  • 5 of 5
Austin was our departure point for our two week hit the road running ROAD TRIP. We had planned to make Austin our "relax" time before heading home. We explored alternate accommodations because of the high price of hotels in the Austin area. It was the right choice. From our first contact with Holly we were greeted with a high standard of Texas Hospitality. Holly informed us honestly about what to expect from her rental and the SOCO community. The top floor is an immaculate living area with all the amenities.Parking and a separate entrance was a bonus. Holly has a "What can I do for you" attitude for her guests and was very helpful in our agenda to see and experience Austin. The South Congress area is a great jumping off point for all of Austin with very cheap public transit very close by and at $2 for a day pass why would you drive. I highly recommend Holly's home. Get the Texas Tour book for what you would like to see and do , then ask Holly where the "locals" go ( restaurants services and landmarks ) You won't be disappointed. Finally we apologize for the late review. As long term married partners my wife thought I had reviewed it and of course I dropped the ball and thought she had already done it.

The South Congress area of Austin is probably the most popular tourist area in the city. My house is 100 yards from S Congress with easy access to downtown, you can walk in 20 min or catch a cab or bus across the street. Lady Bird Lake is on the way downtown and has a beautiful hike and bike trail with kayaking, canoeing and paddle boating easily accessible. South Congress Ave has about 20 different wonderful restaurants and bars, some of the most popular in the city, as well as a lot of shopping. The world famous Continental Club is a short walk as is one of the best outdoor patios in the city, and there are many celebrity sitings at restaurants like Guerro's and South Congress.
