Enjoy this spacious, well decorated comfortable bungalow one block from South Congress in the HEART of SOCO. Close to Zilker Park, Barton Hills, Travis Heights, and Downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I loved this place! It was everything they advertised. Very clean and comfy. Very roomy. I loved the leather furniture and large TV. The kitchen was fully stocked and they even had a washer and dryer! And the bed was so comfortable. I didn’t want to get up! But you can’t stay in bed when you’re in the heart of SoCo. There are great restaurants, café’s, and coffee shops all up and down the street. I loved browsing in the various shops that are all different from each other. Everything from a world bazaar type shop to an old fashioned candy shop to the biggest costume shop I’ve ever seen! And the food trailers were something you don’t usually see. They had everything from BBQ trailers to cupcake trailers. Zilker Park was less than 3 miles away (an easy walk) and you could even walk to the entertainment district downtown if you wanted. Austin is known for its downtown nightlife. The neighborhood was amazingly quiet though. You’d never know you were that close to so much energy. The owners were extremely accommodating and responded to every request very quickly. They are really nice people, who are a lot of fun on top of that! I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a weekend (or more) in the best part of Austin. Well worth the price!

This place is an absolute gem! Perfect location right off SoCo -- quiet, but so close to the fun. We were wowed by all of the amenities. Our hosts were so welcoming and helpful, recommending several fantastic local restaurants and activities. We will definitely stay here again!

I NEVER LEAVE REVIEWS........

  • 5 of 5
But this time I had to. This place is perfect! The location, the clean, neat, well thought out bungalow is everything you'd expect but what really completes the "package" deal are the owners. We arrived as strangers and left 3 days later feeling like close friends! Even the neighbors there greet you as friends (and we met several). IF YOU CAN GET IN, STAY HERE- YOU WON"T BE DISAPPOINTED. Austin is an awesome place and this bungalow is where we'll look to stay each time we visit!!! Looking forward to the next time we can get down there!!! We had a great & memorable trip!!!

Great place, great hosts

  • 5 of 5
Booked for 5 nights in late October to attend an Ironman race. The place was perfect. The pictures are not exaggerations. It really is that nice. We went with a group of people and I visited the places they rented. We won hands down on location and amenities.

Location is perfect. You can walk to anything on Congress street. For anything else you need a car (or take a bus) but that is true wherever you are staying. I was worried when I saw the location online. Ended up being the perfect location.

Sherie and Elliot are great hosts. They made us feel so welcome. Beer and a bottle of wine upon arrival, what's not to like. If/when we go back to Austin there is not doubt where we will stay. Thanks for a great time!

Great Cottage in Austin

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I are big fans of home rentals and this was one of the best. It's perfect for a couple, very clean, and has everything you need. The owner, Sherri, was great, and particularly helpful on restaurant and other recommendations. Would gladly stay here again.

We did not rent a car, but that was not a problem as far as hanging out on South Congress was concerned, but if you want to go downtown or further out, rent a car.

Great place.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this place for a quick weekend get away to Austin. We were SO pleased with the place when we saw it, just like the photos except I think it's even more spacious in person. It's very comfortable and there was definitely a lot of attention to detail here. You'll definitely be comfortable. We weren't sure if we were going to be too far from things, but it's not far at all. It's close to SO many things on SoCo and we even walked all the way downtown and back.

Soco Bungalow

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the property for a week this May, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
It was comfortable, within walking distance to almost all Austin's local activities, and Sheri and Elliott were very gracious hosts.
We hope to visit Austin again, and will most likely stay in this bungalow during our stay.
