About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Our 1948, 2BR cottage home has been completely remodeled and sits under a canopy of huge live oak trees. The cheerful kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, gas cooking, and all the tools you need to cook your meals. There is also a French press, microwave oven, and toaster oven for breakfasts, and a good number of margarita and wine glasses just in case you need to unwind with friends after a long day of fun. The bed in the master bedroom has a deluxe pillow top mattress, lots of cozy pillows, and has linen sheets in the summer months and fleece in the few cooler months. The guest room features a second queen bed with plenty of pillows and crisp cotton sheets. The bathroom has also been fully updated. The living room has a flat screen TV, and a fireplace. It’s open to the kitchen, making for an easy layout to hang out with friends and family. After a long day of fun activities, come home to hang out and share a bottle of wine on the huge back deck under the live oaks, or relax on the front porch swing and watch neighbors walk by.

The cottage is located in the vibrant Bouldin Creek neighborhood, one of only a few areas that make up SoCo. We are seven blocks off South Congress Avenue, best known for its fabulous shops, some of the best restaurants in the city, funky food trailers, great boutiques, and legendary music venues (the Continental Club). We are also two miles from outstanding parks like Barton Springs and Zilker Park, and one mile to Ladybird Lake Trail and Auditorium Shores.

Super location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three just returned yesterday from our stay in Austin. We loved this rental! The house was clean, comfortable, and in the best location to everything we wanted to do during our stay. We have a 6 year old and there were a few playgrounds and a splash pad within a short walk which she loved! She also LOVED the macaroons that were left for us upon our arrival!. What a sweet surprise! We visited the pastry shop a few times which was just a few blocks away and it was fantastic. There were so many great coffee places, shops and resturants that we are definitely going to have to come back and stay at this house to experience it all again soon!

Home away from home

Loved this rental. It was so homey, and an excellent location! It was 5 minutes from everywhere we wanted to go, plus it was located in a really cool neighborhood. We didn't want to leave! I've been to Austin a number of times and have to say this s was my favorite visit ever!

The Cottage Needs Some Work

  • 2 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was somewhat unhelpful.

The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.

I was more than happy with the location.

I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

On the outside, the cottage no longer looks like this. On the inside, every room needs some maintenance, some rooms more than others. Replace the dishes and wine glasses in the kitchen.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback, and we are so sorry to hear if your experience staying with us was not as great as it should have been. While the home is not brand new, it is very well maintained and charming. We have spoken with the homeowner, and we are happy to send a video of the home to any potential guests so they may see for themselves. In regards to the dishes and wine glasses, TurnKey and the owner have both personally gone by to confirm that the dishes, which were purchased in the last year, were plentiful and in good shape. However, we do realize we needed a few additional coffee mugs, which have now been purchased. If there is anything else we can still do for you, please reach out anytime and let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team

The MOST wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter and I rented this house for a week in Austin after reading the many fabulous reviews. From the pictures, the description, and the communication we had before our trip, we felt secure it would be a good stay in Austin.

It was far far better than a good stay in Austin (even though the weather was rainy)! Our stay was like staying at home - if our homes were perfectly stylish, comfortable, and within a short distance to an incredible city. We had no idea how much we would ADORE the neighborhood!

We have rented MANY other properties. What was especially wonderful about this house was the amenities: everything in this house has the quality if things I would have at home: There is not a coffee pot, there are two AND a French press. There is a waffle maker, good knives, and quality pots and pans. There were supplies we normally have to run out and purchase like paper towels, laundry soap, and toilet paper. There were little soaps and shampoos in the bath!

The beds really ARE very comfortable, there were ENOUGH towels and pretty much anything we needed - there is no skimping in this house.

Back to the neighborhood ... like I said, we had no idea how much we would love being exactly where we were! It was great to walk, and right down the street from great places to eat AND the best ice cream shop ever!! All this and at best five minutes from being downtown (if you're not going during rush hour)!

We read that there would be macarons when we arrived, and thought we got rooked! But the next day where was a lovely little box with a sweet note: our macarons!

Thank you SO VERY MUCH for a remarkable week in your remarkable home. I look forward to coming back!

Adorable Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely adorable and in such a great location! We stayed here with another couple during ACL and it was cute, cozy and clean with a great back deck and yard. The owners left us a sweet note with some french macarons from one of their favorite little pastry shop just down the road. The management company was wonderful in providing all the details for the home and quick to respond when we inquired about booking. We are hoping to come back to Austin again to spend more time exploring this wonderful city and we already talked about booking this property again.
