South Congress House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6

STR License # OL 2013 011392

We offer $49 Vacation Rental Damage Protection, which covers up to $3000 of accidental damage, as an alternative to the refundable security deposit. Just let us know if you'd prefer that option in your reservation notes and we'll set it up for you!

This beautiful modern home in the heart of Travis Heights is the perfect place for a stay in Austin! It's just a short stroll to South Congress' top restaurants, shops and entertainment.

Park Lane Modern is just 2 blocks from vibrant South Congress, near beautiful parks, restaurants and music venues. The heart of Austin, Lady Bird Lake, is just down the hill. It's encircled by 10 miles of hike and bike trails, and offers canoeing, kayaking, and boat tours. Little Stacy Park, with playground and tennis courts, is just around the corner. The Big Stacy Pool, heated and spring-fed, is a short walk away.

Downtown Austin is just across the Congress Bridge. It's an easy stroll away and a short cab ride back. The Second Street district features several great restaurants, the Violet Crown movie theater, and Moody Theater, new home of ACL Live.

A courtesy pack & play and high chair are available upon request.

Experience everything!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in home for a few days to attend a UT college visit and worked w/Brooke, who was friendly & nice! There were 6 of us and the house was the perfect size to accommodate us all! So much room that none of us felt cramped at all...and honestly, so modern & cool, the pics don't do it justice!

They DO have a Keurig, even though their description just says 'coffee maker', so that was a nice, unexpected find. We shopped right down the street at HEB for little things like half & half, Splenda & adult beverages, however, we ate out at almost all our meals since SoCo was right down the street.

SoCo, by the way, is legit about a block & a half away and located where some of the BEST pizza & Mexican food could be found...if you can't find something good to eat within walking distance of the house, I worry about ya :) There were also plenty of little & big named shops along SoCo, for those that love to shop while on vacay. Warning for those with heat or sun-sensitivity...Austin is straight up HOT & humid in July, so fair warning to take LOTS of water when you leave to go to SoCo and wear super comfortable shoes.

The house was in a great location to other things too! We were a 10 min drive to Barton Springs pool (which is FREEZING!), 3 min from Congress St. Bridge to view bats (around 8:30p) & it took us 15 min to drive through downtown to get to UT.

Now that was all the good stuff...there were a few things I thought could have been better but it all had to do with the "make ready" process. The cleaning or stocking crew should ensure coffee for the Keurig is available for the next guests (there were 2 unopened boxes of decaf but the regular coffee box was there empty), make sure the lights on the walking path all work at night (there are these really cool metal walking "pads" that can be a little difficult to maneuver at night when the lights don't work...we used our iPhones' flashlight to help) and that the tree next to the parking space is kept trimmed out of the pathway (I'm 5'2" and I ran into that darned tree the entire visit). Again, though, the pluses totally outweigh the negatives at this home and we're still super happy we rented it!!

Perfect house for enjoying South Congress. Very spacious with a modern feel. Easy walk to many prime spots on South Congress and not a bad walk to South First. Management staff was very helpful.

Reviewer Comments:

The location was excellent, the house beautiful in terms of layout and furnishings, and property management/access was good. We had two little ones with us and appreciated that there were 2 cribs and high chairs (although we only knew in advance about availability of 1 of each, so brought a portable crib and had overweight luggage bringing high chair). We had some friends over for dinner, and parking was a bit of a problem, with only 1 guest parking permit (friend almost got a ticket 15 minutes after arrival). The 1 parking place was somewhat blocked by a tree that needed pruning. The property was clean, well-maintained ( a bit of dirt in fridge- should have been cleaned more thoroughly). It was a bit confusing which trash cans to use, despite the notebook of rules. All in all, the property worked well for us ( 3 couples, 2 small children), and we would definitely rent it again.

My family was in town for a wedding and decided to rent a house so the babies would have room to crawl around. Park Lane was awesome!!! The house is beautiful and in a great location. We walked to restaurants to eat and the local coffee shops. I would definitely stay here again!
