STYLISH SOUTH CONGRESS HOUSE IN TRAVIS HEIGHTS – ONE BLOCK TO DINING & SHOPS!

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4-5

This is a 1936 single family home that is well loved and well decorated. The home has a large kitchen with a spacious prep island, large windows on three sides looking out onto a large pecan tree - and plenty of dishware for entertaining. The living areas are decorated with contemporary art and designer-quality furniture, including G Romano. This house has been photographed in Tribeza magazine, for a piece on interior design.

We are on a spacious corner lot with a large yard. This house is on a quiet street one block away from the hippest area in Austin, South Congress Avenue. There are many great restaurants, shops, bars and music venues only a 5 minute walk away - Continental Club, Gueros, Hey Cupcake, Vespaio....

Bedrooms include high-end natural latex mattresses and bedding. With large pecan trees, cozy but stylish furnishings, a deck, cruising bicycles, this house is meant to feel like your stylish home away from home.

We are looking for respectful renters who will really enjoy their time here.

We lived in this rental house ourselves for many years, which we hope ensures that all the amenities are provided, and have paid special attention to keeping this house charming and fresh, both for ourselves and for our renters.

Natural cleaning products are used. The paint is no-voc. This all means we take care in eliminating toxins and allergens as much as possible for our guests and the environment.

This was the first home we purchased as a family. We lived in this house for 6 years and loved it. With more kids came more needed space but we wanted to keep the house to be able to share it with great people.

Owner2 purchased this house in 2003

This old but quaint house is in the best location in Austin. It is in a quiet neighborhood within a 2 block walk to many restaurants, shops and coffee on South Congress.

Great yard. Nice deck. Organic furnishings. Lots of windows for an old house. Location. Location. Location. Quiet neighborhood....

We had a wonderful time spending Thanksgiving in this comfortable Travis Heights home! It had everything we needed to entertain our family while watching football on the big screen tv in the den. The bikes came in handy for riding to South Congress and enjoying the shops and restaurants. Our dog loved the yard and the neighborhood. Brian was responsive and helpful and the property was clean and well maintained. It was a great experience and we plan to return next November. Thanks Brian!

My family of five stayed here for a week of vacation. Its comfortable, yet chic, decor made it lovely for both adults and kids. You can't beat the five minute walking distance to the fun of SOCO - Home Slice Pizza, Guerro's and Joe's coffee, to name a few of our favs. We watched all the downtown 4th of July festivities from a great vista point by the local middle school. If I could, I would rank it four and a half stars for the following reasons: the lack of washer, which was scheduled to be replaced, and the lack of a set of curtains in the master bedroom. Overall, we would highly recommend it to others! Don't miss the bats at dusk or swimming at Reimer's Ranch.
Recommended for:  Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Families with Young Children
Owner's Response: Sears was on my bad list but the new washer and dryer finally arrived. And we'll put the curtains back up. Last guest must have taken them down. So glad you had a such a nice stay.

My husband and I stayed here and we loved it. We have stayed in several vacation rentals around downtown Austin but this one is a perfect location. It's an adorable house with extremely comfortable beds. We are already on the books for a second visit and can't wait. The owner is also very nice and accommodating, which we really appreciated.

The house and location are perfect for a great Austin getaway. The house was well kept and had all the amenities we needed. The property is located in the SoCo area one street over from all the shops, restaurants, and clubs on Congress. Easy walking distance. The location is also in close proximity to many of the more popular destinations in Austin.

We truly appreciated how responsive and accommodating Brian was during our stay. I would recommend this rental to family and friends.

Cozy Digs

Very good feel to this South Congress neighborhood (porches, peeps walking dogs, bicyclists, neighbors with kids) and a great ambiance in this comfortable home. Wonderful wood-paned windows in every room -- they actually open and close -- great back deck with barbecue pit, nice furnishings, a large TV and Internet for connectivity. Not for the mod-squad type, as there is no dishwasher and the bathroom is small. But, hey, you want SoCo, not the W Hotel, right? I'm returning and pretending I live there.
