Charming Bungalow in SoCo

  • 3 of 5

This was a charming bungalow to be sure. Also, a great location. Congress Ave was only about two blocks away. Overall, the place is clean and tidy, comfortable, well-furnished, and there are some whimsical decor items (little plastic characters sprinkled throughout). The owners are great, located right next door and were there in a flash when we had some trouble turning on the tv. However, there are a couple of things that could be better: the bed in the back room squeaks every time you move, not all the doors close, the one door in the back room doesn't have a handle/knob, the shower curtain doesn't reach fully to the floor so the floor gets soaked (you'll need to put a towel down), the white chair in the living room is dirty, and there is a very large cockroach type bug that lives in the kitchen and comes out at night. He likes the counter area, by the dish drainer. He's huge, so enter at your own risk.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the feedback. While I don't think the roach "lives" in the house (or no one else has mentioned the live in guest in the past 4 years we've been doing this), we did have the house exterminated and thank you for alerting us to his presence. The shower has also been fixed. Unfortunately, the guests prior broke our shower rod and we had to put up a makeshift solution that didn't work as well as we'd hoped.

Location! Location!! Location!!!

This charming house is in a great location. It is within walking distance to South Congress and a quick drive to downtown. The house was very clean, beds were comfy, and linens were fresh. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Adorable house, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my birthday in Austin with a group of girls and this was the perfect crash pad for us! The house was beautifully furnished, spotless, and had plenty of room for 5 of us. It's ideally located just blocks from South Congress so it was perfect for shopping and grabbing a quick bite without having to worry about parking. Also, just a quick uber ride away to downtown and sixth street! We had a blast, definitely would recommend!

Charming House Perfect for a Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

My college roommate and I decided to meet in Austin. I found this house a week or two before we arrived. Kristi was great!!! The house is super cute, clean, and in a perfect location. This was my first time staying in a house rather than a hotel and I was a bit concerned. I'm very picky about my accommodations (it can make or break my trip) and only stay in 5 star hotels. The pictures don't lie it's well decorated and I was extremely comfortable. It's not real big but doesn't feel cramped or cluttered. The linens and towels were soft and clean. The location was perfect. We did a lot of walking and could get to all the fun locations in the SoCo area. Kristi will provide recommendations on restaurants and attractions as well if you want them. She was really nice. I'd definitely stay here again!!!

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from Austin and wanted to share our experience. This is a charming bungalow in a wonderful location. Great area to walk for shopping, restaurants and all things Austin! We arrived on a Sunday and took a quick trip to Whole Foods and then settled in for a great week in Austin. Page, one of the owners, was very friendly and was available for anything we might need, which was nonexistent because everything we needed was there for us...sans a good knife, but hey, everything else was very clean, very peaceful and every room carefully and meticulously decorated. If you need a rental, look no further because this place is perfect in every way...Thank you Page and Kristi for sharing your lovely home with us!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect, smaller house in a great area for, well, everything. We stayed for SXSW, which frankly is all over the city. I thought it'd be a little far away, but I was wrong. In walking distance to everything.

Plus - the place was adorable! Very clean, comfortable, provided everything we could have asked for. There were three of us and it was very spacious, never felt cramped or on top of each other. I will definitely stay here the next time I go to Austin!

Thank you!
