Capital Condo is the perfect place from which to enjoy all the fun that Austin has to offer. It's sparkling clean, tastefully decorated and completely comfortable with two HDTVs, free WiFi, a full bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen and a small dining area.
So Close to So Co: Capital Condo is one mile from the trendy SoCo area with more bars and restaurants than you can enjoy in several visits. Grab a quick bite at one of the trailer eateries or enjoy traditional dining at one of the many restaurants along South Congress. Enjoy some free live music in Guero's Oak Garden, have a cold one at the iconic Continental Club, eye the celebs at Joe's Hot Coffee, catch the game at Doc's Motor Works and experience pizza nirvana at Home Slice Pizza.
6th Street and the Warehouse District: Before there was So Co, there was 6th Street. It's still going strong and this traditional entertainment district has expanded over to the Warehouse District just a few blocks west. Capital Condo is just two miles south of downtown Austin, so on your way back from visiting our beautiful capital building check out ground zero for the Live Music Capital of the World. This is where the South by Southwest Music Festival takes place in March, but the rest of the year it's just the locals and their music- rock n roll, punk, indie, blues, heavy metal, jazz- it's all here for you to enjoy- if you can stay up that late. But there's plenty to see and do earlier as well, so put 6th Street and the Warehouse District on your list of things to do.
It's not just bars and restaurants: There's more to Austin than bars and restaurants, or so we've been told. Lady Bird Lake, the Hike and Bike trail, Butler Park, Zilker Park, Barton Springs pool and the Long Center for the Performing Arts are within three miles. St. Edward's University, the University of Texas, Zachary Scott Theater, Austin City Limits Moody Theater, the Blanton Museum, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum and the Texas State Capital building are all very close. Capital Condo is your perfectly situated headquarters for enjoying it all.
My family and I had the privilege to stay at this condo and can say that we really enjoyed ourselves. The condo was exceptionally clean and very comfortable. We felt right at home. We were able to use the kitchen space and had breakfast there for 9 people. Family enjoyed our time there. Sleeping accommodations were exceptional and very comfortable.The living room was also comfortable for unwinding at the end of a long day. The managers were contacted during our stay and prompt return call alleviated the issue. We would return to this condo in the future if we were to return to Austin. Many things to do and see in Austin and many things are easily accessible to the condo.
Do not hesitate to stay here. Very comfortable, clean, well provisioned condo. Designated parking place, gated entrance to complex, well provisioned kitchen, large bedroom, comfortable queen sized bed are only a few of the great things about this condo. Thoughtful, well thought out place to stay. Reading lights on both sides of the bed, a nightlight in the bathroom, decent knives in the kitchen and a knife sharpener. Decorated like it was your own house, not just for renters. Owners have thought of everything. Convenient to south congress fun and downtown. Our deposit refund was credited before we even got home.

I had never used homeaway so I was a little nervous, but everything went smoothly from my booking to the refund of my deposit. The owner provided excellent customer service.
First, let me say you can't get a better deal than this! Not only is the condo exactly as pictured, but it is much more spacious & bright than you can possibly show in a picture. There bedroom is huge with a wonderful walk-in closet with a dresser inside & full-sized ironing board. The owners have thought of almost everything a person could want/need. I'm not used to TX weather, & my allergies flared up, but there were tissues throughout the entire condo for my comfort.
The bathroom had a nice long counter for all my toiletries, & there were plenty of towels. There's even an automatic night light in the bathroom.
I cooked my entire 6 nights here. I had everything I wanted & needed. My only suggestion would be to have a few Tupperware type containers to store food, but other than that they had everything including a blender to make my homemade shakes!
The condo is in a gated, locked community, & I felt totally safe. The community itself is in a quiet, residential area. There is a restaurant, grocery store, & drug store within walking distance, & sidewalks to get there. I loved that this was nearby to South Congress & downtown because I spent most of my time there.
There is a Mexican restaurant literally across the street I went to on my last night, & I enjoyed a delightful meal & frozen margarita. Shopping & food at South Congress is wonderful, & the owners will provide you with a list of places to go & things to do as well as a map & guide in the condo.
As for the owners, they are trustworthy & responsive. They answered every email quickly as well as refunded my deposit quickly as promised. I really appreciated them working with me on my check-out time since I had a later flight.
This condo is decorated with renters in mind rather than some person who is renting out a back house on their property or living there part-time. It is clean, spacious, well-lit, tastefully decorated, and no smells of pets or cigarettes.
Austin is a lovely city, and this condo was the perfect spot to have access to everything a tourist would want to do. If I ever return, I would come back to this condo for sure.
I would recommend this condo to a couple or small family. You get more than you would pay the same price for a hotel room for sure!
