SOCO - SECLUDED 2 BEDROOM STUDIO

Austin Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This newly remodeled upstairs studio is walking distance to everything downtown and in the South Congress (SoCo) district. Experience Austin by staying in this wonderful old neighborhood, which is close to live music, food, culture, history and recreation. The light filled 2-bedroom studio is upstairs in my home. With off-street parking and a private exterior entrance it is the perfect place to relax after a day of exploring Austin. Gaze out to the two majestic 200-year old oak trees or enjoy yourself by sitting out in the shady backyard patio. A stroll 3 blocks west takes you to lively South Congress Avenue filled with fantastic restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and music venues. The house has a vintage pool which is filled in the summer months for a dip but if you are a swimmer Big Stacy Park and pool is a short walk away with its year round pool which is fed by natural hot springs in the winter months. The park also has over 3 acres of walking trails. Additional swimming and recreation is but a short drive away at Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool. If you are a runner or walker Lady Bird Lake trail is just a couple of blocks away for a jog or walk, and is home to Austin's famous Congress Avenue bat colony. The entertaining Second, Warehouse, and Sixth Street districts downtown are a 3-minute bus/cab ride or a 15 minute walk. Also close by are Auditorium Shores, the Convention Center, The Children's Museum, Whole Foods Market, the Long Performing Arts Center, the Capitol and much more.

The studio has two private bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and the other with a full size. The couch is a pull out full sized bed. A small refrigerator, coffee/tea maker and toaster oven are provided for convenience or take the beautiful five minute walk up to Jo’s Coffee shop, a unique food trailer stop or numerous restaurants.

Austin Bergstrom Intl. airport is only 15 minutes away ($20 cab ride).

Owners are available to provide guests with suggestions on restaurant options, live music venues and much more!

Great place to stay for Music Festivals, right in the heart of it! ACL.... Less than 3 miles. SXSW....Just blocks away to enjoy a multitude of the entertainment venues.

I have lived in Austin for over 30 years and love the creativity and vibrance of this city.

Laura Toups purchased this studio in 1990

I created this new space upstairs to provide others an opportunity to experience Austin while staying in a quiet special place. If desired, I am happy to assist in helping you find the unique places in Austin during your stay.

Great Place to get away from it all

This apartment was a very clean and beautiful retreat in the heart of SoCo. I come to Austin every year for a SXSW, and try to stay as close as possible, and this place was very close. A couple of routes to get to S. Congress, and a great area for walking. Near busline, and the pedicabs would take us to the bottom of the hill on Riverside. Had great communication with the owner, via phone and text, even bumped into her downtown once. The bedrooms are large and spacious, the living area is about the same size as the bedroom, great for 2-4 people but larger group would be cramped. The Wi-Fi was great. The backyard and trees are filled with life and made for great viewing in the Tree House.

Lovely Quiet Retreat

This apartment was a spectacularly beautiful retreat in the heart of the SoCo neighborhood. My husband and I come to Austin every year for a family visit, and try to stay in this general area - and this place was the best we've staying in by far! From the great communication from the owner, to her warm greeting (with fresh flowers) when we arrived, to the walkable proximity of the shops and restaurants nearby - everything was perfect. [The only minor point I'd warn those older or physically challenged folks about is the rough path and number of steps up to the door of this retreat (since it's a second-story entrance) - these might be off-putting to you.]

Wonderful Stay

This was a wonderul place, neat, clean, great location. If there were a negative, it would be the amount of stairs to climb. Just be aware if you have any limitations. The owner was easy to work with, the price was right. We had a great stay in Austin and this home made it even better.

Great SOCO location and accomidations

We had a blast in this quaint South Congress Austin Neighborhood. Just across the lake and in the shadow of the downtown Austin skyline you are a short walk from everything that makes South Congress cool, hip and weird. The Owner was great and accommodating, she has done a great job building this neat rental, it is private, very clean and very nicely decorated. My 2 essentials were met with coffee ready to be made and an iPhone dock for my music. Bring a bottle(s) of wine and a good attitude, everything else is there, enjoy.
