South Congress Getaways (Austin License ##OL2013085385) offers our guests the most authentic Austin experience -with both the plush comfortable & very eclectic decor. South Congress Getaways Guest House is the closest vacation rental in Travis Heights to South Congress Avenue, only one block from the most lively and exciting area in Austin.

We cater to those who enjoy a luxurious and clean home with amazing privacy and a very eclectic and vibe'y feel... only one block walk to South Congress Avenue.

Especially if this is your first time in Austin, at this house, you just drop off your bags and you are comfortably right in the center of all Austin has to offer -even a short walk to Downtown, while still providing complete privacy being nestled in a approximate 900 square foot Guest House.

Each bedroom is super cozy and unique, comfortable as well as private to the outside world. You can either open up the blinds and curtains for sunshine and the beautiful visuals of live Oak Trees, OR if you prefer to use the black-out curtains, you can sleep in as long as you like!

You are so close to South Congress, that it becomes part of your neighborhood while you are here! Jump down to Jo's for your morning coffee, grab an amazing breakfast at Magnolia's or South Congress Cafe, eat at one of the many top-rated restaurants, shop at the best boutiques, listen to live music, or head outdoors for the hike and bike trails -- whatever you choose, there is something to suit everyone.

The BEST location in Austin!

  • Submitted: Mar 27, 2014

I honestly can't say enough good things about my stay! Not only was this extremely easy to book, when I arrived the property was even better than it looked online. The location is awesome, convenient to everything in Austin, even during the chaos of SXSW. It really felt like a home, so much better than staying in a hotel. The maid service was great, very unobtrusive, and the area, though right next to South Congress, is very quiet at night. We were even able to park our two SUVs right behind the house with no problem. I'm actually looking forward to going back next year! I recommend this property to anyone wishing to enhance their experience in Austin!!
Owner's Response: Thank you, CC!! :) So cool and so very kind for you to take the time out to write this!... I know you are beyond busy :) It was so fun having you!

We want to be your home away from home when you come to Austin!!!! :)

Many thanks!

Perfect Location while in Austin

  • Submitted: Mar 20, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
From the moment we arrived I was impressed as Nicole had prepared for us a welcome basket as well as an information packet about the area. The 2nd floor apartment was in great condition with comfortable furniture and a nice ambiance. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to do some light cooking. As my business associates and I were attending SXSW, it was in a great location about 25 minutes walking distance from downtown. While it was unseasonably cold with even some rain, I enjoyed the walk and even rented a "City Bike" one day for only $8. All in all, I was very pleased with this place and would return.
Owner's Response: Hey there! Thank you so much for taking the time to post this! What a fun time to be in Austin and I am so glad to have had you guys in town!

Looking forward to having you back! :)

We loved our stay at South Congress Getaways! For three girls in Austin for a fun weekend, it was a great location for walking to everything on South Congress.

The house itself is wonderfully clean and comfortable. We loved the decor! Nicole was very easy to reach via text and was a good source of information for any questions we had regarding our visit.

Thanks for the hospitality!

Notes:
A car is not necessary when you are staying at the house, as it is just a 1 block walk to the vibrant South Congress Street (SoCo). You can walk to really beautiful parks nearby and a playground and tennis and pool at Stacy Park. The pool is heated and doesn't cost anything... it is actually spring fed. There are hiking and biking trails close by, as well. South Congress offers so many amazing restaurants, shops, etc. Across the bridge, a short walk away, you are in Downtown where you can see the State Capital and are close to the Convention Center. There is so much to enjoy while staying at this location, and then just an easy walk back to the tranquility retreat of the South Congress Getaways House.
