South Congress Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Large Fenced Yard in heart of Downtown Austin

Our downtown bungalow is an ideal WALKABLE location for family, friends and colleagues in the heart of Austin's SOCO entertainment district. This is a perfect spot for a romantic weekend away or spacious enough for a family with kids and a dog, featuring a huge deck and a great fenced backyard for grilling out and hanging out.

SLEEPING: Can accommodate 1-6 people with 2 stylishly decorated bedrooms, and sleeping accommodations in the living room with a queen sofa sleeper. There are 2 full bathrooms for privacy.

EATING: This house features a recently remodeled kitchen with enough vintage touches to remind you that you are in a 1930s house in South Austin. There is a cozy dining area for indoor dining, as well as access to the backyard deck off of the kitchen. Kitchen has basic cooking set-up included with updated appliances. Walk to many of Austin's best restaurants from this location.

WALK TO/LOCATION: SOCO DISTRICT: This vintage cottage is right off of South Congress and you can walk to everything that this artsy neighborhood has to offer. Walk to:

-Restaurants, like Enoteca Vespaio Guero's Taco Bar and South Congress Cafe.

-Art galleries, like Yard Dog Gallery

-Coffee shops, Jo's Coffee and Bouldin Creek Coffeeshop

-Clothing boutiques, shop for boots at Allen's, or just go urban with an all-black ensemble at Blackmail Boutique

-And even a retro candy shop, Big Top Candy Shop, moments from your doorstep.

This quaint cottage is the perfect launching pad for an ACL, F1, SXSW or X Games outing for a group of colleagues with 5+ separate beds and 2 full bathrooms for space and privacy.

Professional Service and Exceptional Agent

  • 4 of 5

I wanted to take a moment to write about Chereen Fisher and her agency. Although this particular property did not suit our needs for a recent stay in Austin, I can tell you that Chereen and her staff answered all of my questions, stayed on top of the process, and followed through on their promises to get me information. I was able to go to the website easily. Chereen and her staff quickly returned the email, and if I ever need a private residence in Austin for a vacation, I will return to her office. Her professionalism really came through and I wanted to recognize for any other prospective clients.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for taking your time to share these kind words. I don't know if I have ever received a review from a guest that didn't rent from me! Your review probably means the most to me for this reason. Only wish we had been able to find the perfect home for this trip but certainly look forward to having you as our guest next time! Cheers, Chereen
