2BR/1BA BOULDIN COTTAGE CHARMER IN THE TRUE HEART OF SOCO!

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Our 1948 cottage home has been completely remodeled and sits under a canopy of huge Live Oak trees. It’s located in the vibrant Bouldin neighborhood, one of only a few areas that make up SoCo. We are 7 blocks off South Congress Avenue, best known for its fabulous shops, some of the best restaurants in the city, funky food trailers, great boutiques, and legendary music venues (like Continental Club). We are also 2 miles from the outstanding parks, Barton Springs and Zilker Park, and 1 mile to Ladybird Lake Trail and Auditorium Shores. After a long day of fun activities, come home to hang out and share a bottle of wine on the huge back deck under the Live Oaks (and glowing solar powered lanterns at night), or relax on the front porch swing and watch neighbors walk by.

The cheerful kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, gas cooking, and all the tools you need to cook your meals. There is also a French press, microwave oven, and toaster oven for breakfasts, and a good number of margarita and wine glasses just in case you need to unwind with friends after a long day of fun. The master bedroom bed has a deluxe pillowtop mattress, lots of cozy pillows, and has linen sheets in the summer months and fleece in the few cooler months. The guest room features a second queen bed with plenty of pillows and crisp cotton sheets. The bathroom has also been fully updated. The living room has a flat screen TV, a fireplace, and an IPod docking station. It’s open to the kitchen, making for an easy layout to hang out with friends and family.

Our property is TurnKey Rental Certified. When you book with us we’ll send you our mobile app with directions, our 24-hour live support number and rental guide. Then, you can drive right to the rental which features a digital door lock where you’ll use your unique code to enter (no need to meet for keys). Inside, you'll enjoy our premium amenities: shampoo, soaps, paper products and hotel-quality towels and linens. You can request an early check-in / late check-out and we will arrange it whenever possible.

*All TurnKey Vacation Rentals follow local and state tax rules. City and state taxes will be added to all reservation rates. Each reservation also requires a cleaning fee, and the standard Property Damage Protection policy.

Great little house near everything.

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for our family, also including my wife and 2 year old son, who referred to the house as "our cute little house."
The house was easy to get into. Everything was clean on arrival and a nice arrival gift was even waiting for us.
The amenities are great, especially in the kitchen. The back porch and yard were wonderful as well.
The best part of this house is the location. It's in a quiet neighborhood but easily walkable to all the food truck courts on 1st, and the busy Lamar and S Congress. We rode our bikes everywhere. Zilker park, the bike trail along the river and Barton springs are just a short bike ride away through the neighborhood.
We had a great time in Austin and this house was quite suitable for us and wells highly recommend staying here.

True South Austin Experience

  • 4 of 5
This was a great location for access to everything on Barton Springs Road, South Lamar, First Street, and Congress. I think maybe it should not be advertised as SOCO as it is several blocks away. It's not convenient to walk to every day or more than once a day, although we did the walk a couple of times during our stay. First street is very easy to get to. The house was very clean and in very good condition. We have no complaints about the home itself at all. I will make the comment that there is a train that runs nearby that I was not aware of prior to staying here. It is not in the immediate vicinity, but you can hear the train plainly when it comes by. The problem was the train blew the horn at 11 pm and 5:30 am at least 2 of the nights we stayed there. I think maybe I got used to it and didn't hear it at night the last couple of days. Also for comparison, it did not wake my husband up, but I am a light sleeper and it bothered me. I think I was mostly annoyed because I was afraid the train would wake my baby up; it did not wake my baby up. The house and booking company were wonderful and accommodating.

Reviewer Comments:
House is perfect alternative to a hotel - close to shops and restaurants, great areas to walk, great atmosphere to spend time in the back yard, no more than 5-10 minute drive from anywhere you want to be. Really nice coffee shops and brunch locations within walking distance.

Disappointing

  • 1 of 5
My husband and I booked this cottage for an anniversary getaway. We have rented a lot of great homes in this area of Austin, but we cannot say we were pleased at all with our stay here. We brought our dog with us on our trip and she got fleas while at this house. It turns out that she is highly allergic to flea bites and our time here was miserable. We ended up checking out two days early. When we tried to get the rental company to refund us for those two nights, they refused to do anything to compensate us. They have good customer service until you have a problem. My advice to future renters is that if you plan to rent this property, do not bring your pet.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear about the problems with your pet. As we explained, it seems likely that your pet might have gotten the fleas anywhere outside the home. We have had several guests stay there with no issues - and there have not been any pets in the house before yours for a long, long time. We inspected the home again and found no sign of fleas. Unfortunately, you did not notify us of the problem until after you had left so there was no chance for us to meet you, inspect the property while you were still there, or even to see your dog. It certainly seems more likely that your dog could have picked up fleas outside. You had mentioned that your dog has flea protection as well, which makes it even harder to understand how this could have happened. In the future, we'd always recommend contacting a manager and letting them know about issues like this before leaving town days early and requesting a refund later. Had we been able to verify anything about the stay, other than that you left early and wanted a partial refund, it would have been much easier to justify this on all sides. Again, we are so sorry that this happened to you and that you were disappointed in the overall stay.

Bright Cottage with a gorgeous backyard/deck

  • 4 of 5
My stay at this cute cottage was a delight. It was a perfect size for a long weekend stay in April. I hope to rent it again!

Pros:
-Front loading laundry machine + dryer
-SUPER soft bed
-SO many windows which provided beautiful light
-perfect location for master bedroom in back of house. Faces back yard with giant oak tree.
-cute kitchen with all of the essentials
-perfect front porch swing
-great shower head (rain shower) and magnifying mirror in shower.
-LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION - amazing neighborhood / SAFE and close to 1st street, S. Congress and not too far from downtown. I rented a bike to get downtown. Great for morning walks.

CONS
-sheets needed to be washed upon arriving. I received my cleaning fee back for this inconvenience.
-comforter inside duvet cover looked very dirty and old. I did not sleep with it.
-fruit flies: could not figure out where they were coming from. Possibly indoor plants?
-living room was not configured for comfort. Only one love seat and 2 chairs. TV over fireplace was not in an ideal area to watch. did not even use this room.
-Overall it could have been much cleaner.
