THE BEST LOCATION IN AUSTIN!

  • 5 of 5
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!!

BEST LOCATION TO STAY IN AUSTIN

We were so happy to be able to stay at this adorable apartment while we were in Austin. Nicole was an amazing host . We were welcomed with champagne and soft music upon our arrival. The apartment looks like it belongs in a magazine because of the beutiful furniture and finishes. It was so comfortable for us . We had all the amenties we needed. The location is key. You can walk to all the great shops and restaurants on S. Congress. So much nicer to stay in a neighborhood type area then downtown. Our next trip to Austin we take , we won't hesitate to book this place again.

THIS HOUSE MADE OUR 1ST TRIP TO AUSTIN AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I loved staying at this house, and so did our friends. We hadn't been to Austin before, but we had heard to just "get to South Congress" and that we would have the best trip. This house was a block out the door of a walk to this street. It says in the description that you can drop your bags off and be in the heart of Austin and that was true. It was exactly what happened in our case. We got there, and ended up walking down the street and found so many restaurants and shops and the like, just down the street. We didn't know that The Continental Club was so close, either, but it was just down the street as well. We hit Perla's patio, Vespaio and Jo's Coffee each morning.

We had a car, but next time, if the house is available, we all decided that we wouldn't even need a car. We found out that it is a 15 minute cab ride to the house from the airport, and once you are there everything is within walking distance.

We noticed these really cool bikes on South Congress that we want to make use of next time and as well, Austin seems to be a city where even taking a bus could be cool. -wouldn't be caught dead in one where we live, but it all seems to go in Austin. The bus stops were all right there.

The house was totally clean and the coffees that the owner left out for us were really sweet. Thank you for a great stay!!! We will be back!

BEST PLACE TO STAY IN AUSTIN!!!

  • 5 of 5
I am so, so glad I found this place! It was so nice pulling up and having an easily accessible parking spot and walking into such a beautiful guesthouse. There was music playing and coffee out and everything was absolutely amazing. The beds were awesome (naturally I decided to try both) and the couch was perfect for lounging. I hope next time I come to Austin this place hasn't been booked yet- I'll definitely be back!!!

THIS IS WHERE EVERY DAY SHOULD START IN AUSTIN.

  • 5 of 5
Nicole was extremely accommodating as we had made a last minute extension to our stay in Austin and needed a place asap. The description of the rental says it all. A quick walk to SoCo for coffee or breakfast and a short bike or taxi ride to 6th street or Zilker park. Absolutely cozy and clean. The perfect place to come back to after a day of adventuring in Austin. There were 3 of us but could easily accommodate 5-6. This will be the first place I check for availability when we return to Austin, which I hope is soon. Thanks Nicole!

GREAT LOCATION IN AUSTIN!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, one year old son and I were in Austin for a wedding and stayed at this property. Everything was perfect and exactly how it was described. It was very clean. The kitchen had everything and every dish, utensil, pot, pan, etc. that you could possibly need. The location could not be better. Lot's of good restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance and a short drive or cab ride to downtown.

Nicole was easy to work with and responding quickly with all the questions I had leading up to our trip. She even left a bunch of toys out for my son, which was great since it is hard to travel with enough stuff to keep him entertained.

Overall, it was a great trip. We will definitely be staying here again next time we are in Austin.

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.
