My husband and are both chefs. moved to Austin 4 years ago. we live in the neighborhood and love it!
My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights at Tyler's Butterfly Bungalow in late September and would recommend this place to anyone and everyone! The photos and description provided are absolutely spot on, and the beds are ridiculously comfortable. The place is wonderfully located, with the heart of South Congress only 5 mins walk away. The bikes provided were an added bonus and allowed my friend and I to get to South Lamar and also ride the trails around Zilker Park. Tyler was an absolutely fantastic host who was always easily contactable and very accommodating. I will definitely be trying to stay here again whenever I am in Austin!
Our stay at the Carriage House was perfect for our weekend trip. The bedding was very comfortable and the house had everything we needed. It felt like a home away from home and was very cozy. The location was great in that it was easy to walk to South Congress to go out to eat or just stroll the neighborhood. And Tyler was very responsive replying to texts quickly while we were there when we had a couple of questions. I would definitely stay here again if in Austin and would recommend this home to others wanting to stay in South Congress.
Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Pictures are nicer than the actual place, but it's still a cute home to rent. Owner was very nice to allow early check in since no one was there before us. Excellent neighborhood & so quiet on the outdoor space.
I stayed here a few weeks ago with 6 girlfriends and had the best time. This house is perfect for having a quiet spot to come back to after a busy day but it's super close to all the fun shops/cafes in south congress. To get around the city, we rented cute bikes from Tsunami Cycles for $25.Their number is 512-448-9725. You won't regret renting this house. My only suggestion is that if you are more than 4 people, make sure to request the sofa bed to be made before you arrive. It wasn't for us which wasn't a big deal but would have been nice to have it all set.
The property was beautiful! We came for a bachelorette party and it was the best place to experience the nightlife of Austin while still being hidden away in a quiet neighborhood. There were many restaurants in walking distance and downtown was quick ride away. The house was very cute and the outdoor seating area was a definite favorite. Highly recommend this cozy house when planning your stay in Austin!
The location of the house was good; however there were too many other negatives that made the house not worth it. The house could use updates and is smaller than pictures made it seem.
The owner was not good about communicating. If I ever had a question, I had to reach out a few times before getting a response. There was an issue with double booking. Beware of the bungalow. It is listed all on one listing on HomeAway and can be booked by special request but when I requested payment to include the bungalow because I wanted to book it, the payment request that was sent over was not including the bungalow. This was an oversight on the owner's part and when we arrived at the property, instead of being understanding and helpful with the oversight and double booking, the owner was very unprofessional and had no interest in helping provide a solution. The owner refused to pick up calls and instead sent over her ex-husband hours later to speak to the guests with again no solution. We weren't even given a house key upon arrival.
There are plenty of better properties to rent from. I would not recommend this. Extremely unprofessional and negative renting experience. I've rented houses in the past and have had far better experiences.
Very cute. Loved the outside deck. Walking distance to South Congress restaurants, shops and bars. Our only complaints would be they didn't provide coffee that wasn't instant and the upholstery on the furniture in the living room needs to be cleaned.
