South Congress House Rental Photos and Description

This relaxing,two bedroom with Brand new Euro-top Serta Queen mattresses, one bath.

Wow!! this 1930's Bungalow is nestled in one of Austin's most desirable areas Travis Heights. Hardwood floors, original Art Deco hardware throughout.What a perfect location two streets from South Congress,See live music at the Continental Club, dine at so/co restaurants,or one of the many top food trailers Austin is famous for. Just one block the other direction is beloved Stacy park swimming pool and jogging trails. Take a morning swim in the open year round spring-fed pool that keeps it warm in the winter and with cool water added in the summer makes the best pool around! Jog along side a tree lined creek with your very welcomed doggie. Sit in the tree-filled yard and sip a margarita or imbibe on the complementary locally roasted coffee we provide each guest. We live close so if needed can provide rides to and from airport for no cost!

We allow a pet if it its well behaved there is a non refundalble 65.00 deposit as the clean up after a dog is much more time consuming.

Go river rafting 30 minutes away in San Marcos or go to one of our extremely gifted film festivals , comedy festivals, There is a reason Austin had been on the best places to live for years!!! come see for yourself.

Nearly perfect!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and our son were delighted to stay at this property. It was nearly perfect. I say nearly, because there was a problem with the couch, but Tyler assures me she has replaced it so that will not be a problem for us if we go back. And I would go back. The location is wonderful. Travis Heights is a great neighborhood. We were on a corner, but it was the quietest corner I've ever stayed on. Tyler said they are remodeling the kitchen in the near future, but we think Austin is all about food and never used the kitchen facilities except for coffee and leftovers. And by the way, Tyler was always responsive to any of my questions or concerns. I found her to be totally accommodating and charming, too. I would happily stay here again if I return to Austin.

the small house

  • 3 of 5

dont expect to much of this house, it is old, worn out, small and as usuall filled with the stuff you dont want to keep in the house you live in "we can use it in the house we rent out instead of throwing it away"

if you want to cut and cook something bring knifes and a pan..

i dont want to talk about the sofa..

and the messy yard...

the one thing we laughed the most about was the only entrance to the second bedroom, it was thru the bathroom !! that was impossible to find out in the pictures..

it was fairly clean if you didnt look in the corners..

the good things was comfortable beds and of course the location... if you just want to enjoy the area and just have a place to sleep its ok..

will we be back ??

Perfect cottage for our anniversary get away. Location was just right for all the things we had planned to do while in Austin. Free pool nearby was nice for a cool dip on a hot August day. Enjoy your visit. We did.

The place was great and easy to find. The rooms were clean and the place was well equipped. We had fun using it as homebase while exploring Austin.
