What makes this bungalow unique

This is the upstairs apartment in a brand new adorable bungalow in the heart of South Congress. Well decorated, alley access to South Congress, near trails and parks (and the trailer park eateries!) and very walkable to shopping and restaurants. Everything in the apartment is brand new. The windows give the impression of being in a very zen treehouse. Plenty of privacy. Also, I live downstairs and am available if there's anything you need that wasn't already stocked in the apartment.

Nice upper "apartment"!

  • 4 of 5

Nice upper space.Nice location. Only disappointment was the bedroom carpeting, which was dirty and stained.

Very clean and well appointed! Owner was friendly. Loved the location, walking to South Congress and everywhere else. No complaints at all. Important to know bathroom is a master bath, so our guest had to come through our bedroom to use it, but it worked out okay. Great that we had the use of the garage since our car was full of stuff. Would highly recommend this to anyone, and would love to come back. Fold out couch was comfortable too.

Great property, great location...

  • 4 of 5

Holly was a very responsive homeowner and accurate in her description of the apartment (darling, and clean....) as well as its "primo" location -- so easy to walk all the way up Congress Ave! Loved the walk-in closet; Wi-Fi & TV really great, too, and so nice having washer & dryer as well as a garage space!...just a few little touches I'd recommend would make this place completely PERFECT!!! Would highly recommend...

Could not be happier with this place!

  • 5 of 5

Perect place for us to stay while visiting our Son here in Austin. Apartment is immaculate and had everything we needed for our stay. Great location. We were able to walk many places or take a short cab ride wherever we needed to go. Bed was very comfortable ! Hoping to be able to stay here the next time we visit

Great location spotless, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Holly was great to deal with. Very responsive. The apartment was perfect for my wife and I. It was very comfortable, spotless, and well equipped including kitchen basics and condiments. Tv's in living room and bedroom. Great location. One block off South Congress and a few blocks south of shops, restaurants and music. We had a car, so garage was handy. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!!

My weekend rates will fluctuate due to large events like Formula 1 and ACL Festival. Cancellations for special events must be given 6 weeks ahead of time for SXSW and a month ahead for ACL Fest and Formula 1 to receive a refund. Please purchase trip insurance if you are concerned you may need to cancel for these events. These are the busiest times of the year and I would lose a good deal of money if my place were to go unbooked due to a last minute cancelation. Thank you for your consideration. Also, Homeaway doesn't offer a way to show minimum stay requirements for weekend vs week day - right now i have a 2 night requirement for week day and a 3 night requirement for weekends. i apologize in advance if this causes confusion.
Parking is in the garage, or on the street.
No smoking
No pets
No parties

Please respect the neighbors and keep the noise level down
I I have to ask you to leave because of noise or maximum occupancy violations or destruction of property / illegal activity I will not provide a refund.
If you need something, if something is not working or you have any issues, please just call, text or knock!

The South Congress area of Austin is probably the most popular tourist area in the city. My house is 100 yards from S Congress with easy access to downtown, you can walk in 20 min or catch a cab or bus across the street. Lady Bird Lake is on the way downtown and has a beautiful hike and bike trail with kayaking, canoeing and paddle boating easily accessible. South Congress Ave has about 20 different wonderful restaurants and bars, some of the most popular in the city, as well as a lot of shopping. The world famous Continental Club is a short walk as is one of the best outdoor patios in the city, and there are many celebrity sitings at restaurants like Guerro's and South Congress.
