Every day in Austin should start in South Congress and this was the perfect place for that. A cozy and comfortable retreat. Thank you!
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!!
The 4 of us only stayed one night but defiantly booking again. Right in the middle of SOCO; walked pretty much everywhere. I loved that the had a water filter system with a cold water feature! Same price or cheaper than the hotels in the area but BETTER! Quiet neighborhood and easy to get to. Thank you for opening your home to us!
First, the apartment/loft was private and secure. It is located in walking distance just off the section of South Congress with to all the cool shops and restaurants nearby. I would suggest the Visitors Center at the Capital. It is put together very well with great exhibits and films that make it interesting even for us non-history buffs.
We chose to do our own breakfast with all the necessary utensils in the fully stocked kitchen . The owners take great pride in this rental and it shows. One of those "pictures do not do it justice" VRBO's. Would absolutely recommend for families.
I recently stayed at Nicole's fun place for a visit to Austin on a girls weekend. The location was perfect close to everything we needed. We even walked downtown one evening over the "Bat Bridge" maybe a 30 minute walk... We stopped at all the hot spots Torchy Taco, Magnolias, Perlas and Hopdaddy Bugers all right in her backyard. If you're looking for food, quaint shopping and a cool place to lay your head this is it.
I also found Nicole to be very accommodating. We had an early arrival and she was kind enough to allow for a very early check in.
Charming, clean and comfortable. We did have a bit of a struggle with the back gate sticking, but otherwise it was fabulous. Walked to Vespaio Enoteca restaurant on S. Congress for dinner. Walked home and had a wonderful rest of the night visiting with my 2 daughters. It really did feel like home. A wonderful mini family reunion.
My husband and I spent 5 nights here and found the property and Nicole to be very accommodating. You can walk to bars, restaurants, cute shops, music spots, and get your groceries easily too. The kitchen was well equipped and the furnishings were super comfy. As landlords ourselves, we look for the extras that a rental provides and you can certainly find many here! Great, quiet neighborhood. We wanted to be close to SoCo on this visit and this property hits the nail right on the head.
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).
