About the property

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.


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.


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.

SOCO rental

Very clean and comfortable. Loved the screen porch. Easy access to everything we wanted to do and see.

Would definitely stay there again. WiFi was not working but everything else was perfect for our needs.

Austin South Congress Casa

  • 5 of 5

Our Austin house was perfect. Great location and super clean. Lots of amenities available in the house. Easy to get in and out. Lots of space and the street was super quiet. The Turnkey iPad available in the house was super helpful. The only downfall was that the wifi wasn't working and there was no detergent for us to wash the towels at the end of our stay. Overall, I would definitely stay at this place again.

Owner's Response: Hi Lauren, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and share your experience. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Please be assured we are looking into that wifi issue and will get it resolved. We've also purchased some laundry detergent for guests' use. By the way, our mention to start a load of towels on the way out is not required at all, and only a suggestion to help the Housekeepers get started. Only if you have time, so please don't feel obligated next time you stay. You were perfect guests, and we look forward to next time! -The TurnKey VR Team

Very clean bungalow near SoCo

  • 5 of 5

Really charming and clean bungalow just two houses off of south congress. While not large, this two bedroom 1 bath has everything you need and is nicely proportioned. The bedrooms are nice, the kitchen is light filled and the screened in back porch is lovely. I particularly liked how clean it was and how much it felt like a vacation rental and had unopened soaps, shampoos/conditioner, etc for guests. Highly recommend this property.

Cute little house, very comfortable and easy!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cute little house that sure beats staying in a motel. The bed is comfy, kitchen adequate and it has a washer/dryer on the screen porch. Its a right off south Congress, can walk SoCo, or 1st ave, 20 min walk to downtown or Lady Bird Lake. We just had a great stay.

I'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

This is an adorable house in a great location. Easy walk to shops, restaurants and music. I rent a lot of vacation homes so tend to look carefully at the amenities. Everything needed was there, and it was spotless.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, 1 block from Soco.

Nice private yard if you are bringing your dog.

Washing machine and dryer in the house are perfect.

Everything clean and amenities are ok. However it is important to bring cooking oil, salt and pepper for a good beginning.

Austin is well-known as the capital of Texas, the home of the University of Texas, and as a gateway to the Texas Hill Country. It is home to the annual South By Southwest music, film and interactive festival, and also the Austin City Limits music festival every October.
