Overview

South Congress House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Our thoughful 2BR/1BA house features a lovely open floor plan, an expansive deck with fan, great backyard and comfortable sleeping arrangements for four adults.

Enjoy the Texas weather from an enclosed back porch with plenty of room to dine and lounge late into the evening. When you’re ready to venture out, it’s just a few minutes’ walk to SoCo’s famed shopping area, and a 15-minute bus ride or even shorter drive into the heart of downtown.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

A sunny living area features a full-size sleeper sofa and two modern chairs for lounging after a day on the town while catching your favorite shows on the flat-screen TV. Flowing drapery, tranquil color schemes and light wood furnishings lend this space laidback Austin attitude.

An arched doorway leads into a classic dining room that accommodates four and features vibrant patterns for extra pep. Connected is a kitchen with traditional white cabinetry, a full suite of appliances and checkered tiles floors straight from the ‘50s!

On warm evenings, enjoy your meal in the covered porch dining area with seating for four, then enjoy a nightcap on the backyard loungers.

Two bedrooms each offer plush queen beds and elegant hardwood floors. Both share a full bathroom with shower/tub combo.

OUR LOCATION

South Congress is chock full of unique shops, eateries and interesting people, and our home is only one block from all the excitement. SoCo’s famous shopping area is only a five-minute walk from our rental – here, you’ll find everything from eclectic antiques at Uncommon Objects to circus-themed sweets at Big Top Candy Shop. Rent a bike to join the locals in scoping out the street top to bottom.

Hungry? Treat yourself to deep fried deviled eggs at Lucy’s Fried Chicken. You can walk there and back to burn some calories. Grab a margarita at Guero’s while you listen to some live music or satisfy your taste buds with gourmet burger at Hopdoddy’s.

If you have a car, you can drive downtown in just 10 minutes. If not, it’s just a 3-minute walk to catch a public bus that travels right into the heart of the city.

Great family basecamp foe Austin excursions

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with family over Memorial weekend. Great location for walking to restaurants/coffee shops/shops--close to both South Congress (busier, hoppier vibe) and South 1st (bit more laid back). Central location for side trips (Umlauf Sculpture Garden was a big hit with our 7 yo daughter; Cathedral of Junk was an interesting side trip too).

House was clean. Beds were comfortable. Got good nights sleep. Enjoyed relaxing on back porch at the end of the day.

Would definitely recommend.

UT Parent Orientation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here during my son's UT orientation. Location was great. I loved the neighborhood feel, but within blocks of great dining and shopping. Grocery store is also an easy 3 - 4 block walk or drive. Access to UT campus is not bad either with at most a 15 minute drive. House was very clean. I loved morning coffee on the large screened in back porch or walking to a nearby coffee shop. Nice hardwood floors, original farmhouse sink in kitchen and the honeycomb tile work in the bathroom give it a historic feel. Cute place. Would stay here again if available.

Cute house!

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I met in Austin for a weekend of hanging out, eating, and just relaxing. The house is very sweet- perfect for two people, but would be good for two couples, too. It's very conveniently located to South Congress St. and all the restaurants and little shops there. The management company was helpful as well. Our only issue was the close proximity to neighbors who were extremely loud- but that's not really the fault of the owners of this house! Thanks for a great weekend!

This is a wonderful house to rent. Right off of So. Congress, but really quiet. The house was super clean and the beds were very comfortable. It had everything we needed. Thanks to William who responded promptly to a WiFi issue. This house is really a gem!

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at this property during the second weekend of ACL this year, and couldn't be happier with our decision. Everything was exactly as advertised and the location was prime not only to SOCO, but a short drive to Zilker park and downtown. Would definitely recommend this property.

Reviewer Comments:

Four of us stayed for a weekend- the whole experience was seamless and very simple- the house looked even better in person- it was very clean when we arrived- comfortable beds and kitchen was great. We enjoyed having coffee on the screened back porch. Everything about this home was in perfect working order - I have already told friends about this great charming place.
