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!!

Love this place!

  • of 5
Super clean, and the owner has thought of every little detail to make your stay a great one. Very cozy and comfortable. A/C works great. This little house is an incredible value. Considering that you will pay more per night for a motel room just blocks away, it just doesn't get any better than this place. PERFECT LOCATION. I will stay here every time I visit Austin. (The only thing I would say is that if you need a place with a bit of a yard or outside space, this is not the right place for you. But if that is not a concern, then this is the perfect home base for seeing Austin.)

Our Sister Trip to Austin

  • of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The guesthouse is only a block from South Congress where there is plenty of yummy places to eat and neat stores to shop in. The apartment furnishings were convenient and comfortable. Nicole had everything made available like she said she would. My 3 young boys and my sister and I fit comfortably. The kiddos did get a little stir crazy without an outdoor space to run in but Nicole was thoughtful enough to offer some toys for the boys to barrow during our stay. I would stay here again for sure!! Thank you!

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.
