I honestly can't say enough good things about my stay! Not only was this extremely easy to book, when I arrived the property was even better than it looked online. The location is awesome, convenient to everything in Austin, even during the chaos of SXSW. It really felt like a home, so much better than staying in a hotel. The maid service was great, very unobtrusive, and the area, though right next to South Congress, is very quiet at night. We were even able to park our two SUVs right behind the house with no problem. I'm actually looking forward to going back next year! I recommend this property to anyone wishing to enhance their experience in Austin!!
Perfect spot for our family trip to Austin. The house is well equipped with all the comforts of home. Wonderful spot - we'll be back!
Stayed here 3 nights during a girls trip with my 2 sisters, and we have zero complaints! Very clean, plenty of space, all the amenities we needed. And the best part: a 1-minute walk to S Congress! Grocery store a block away, plenty of restaurants and fun boutiques within blocks, it was perfect! Would definitely stay here again!!
My husband and I rented this property for a week deliberately choosing a location that would allow us to walk to many of the city's top spots. We were a block and a half to the now very trendy street South Congress and as an added bonus we were thrilled to find out we were only a ten minute walk from a the year round heated six lane pool in nearby Big Stacey Park. All aspects of this rental are very well looked after. The owner has paid incredible attention to detail so she has made it very easy to feel right at home. Anytime we needed anything, her reply was prompt; nothing major just hangers or extra coffee. The beds were comfortable, the TV/sitting room was very cozy and the kitchen and bathroom were beyond well equipped for a rental. There was AC worked perfectly during our unexpected but welcome heat wave! The available free parking right on the premises was great to have when we rented a car.
We highly recommend this property. Thank you Nicole for a wonderful stay!
This is a spacious 2 bedroom apartment above a garage so there are stairs to climb, but worth the effort. Just a block or 2 to South Congress and all of the shops and restaurants. Be sure to try New India but keep in mind this is way hotter than most Indian food so go with medium. Torchy's Tacos are great. Amy's dark chocolate ice cream is scrumptious. If you feel like cooking in, HEB is right nearby. You will enjoy relaxing on the sofa after walking to the shops.
Excellent, clean, comfortable, quiet, and cozy rental just off South Congress! We stayed a week and the location was perfect for what we like to do (eat, shop, drink, walk, and listen to live music!) Would recommend this location for anyone wanting quick access to Soco and having a quiet and private location. Nicole provided great service and was available when needed!
There are many amazing parks, water holes, public pools, areas to hike near the property. At the same time, the property is short walk from the hippest and most popular streets in Austin (South Congress).
