2br/1ba guest cottage near South Congress Ave. Quiet, cozy, comfortable and a great value! Beautiful tree top views from front porch.

This perfectly feathered Nest is centrally located and close to everything great about Austin. You can walk to South Congress, Riverside Drive and Stacey Park with easy access to I-35. Zilker is a short cab ride away.

Small and cozy, it’s the perfect place to rest your head after a busy day in our city. It sits high up above the street and has a long view to the hills west of town. Two bedrooms, one Queen and one Full size bed with a nicely remodeled bath and a kitchen with all the essentials including a washer & dryer. There’s a table with an umbrella out back to have coffee al fresco and it’s so quiet you’d never know how close you are to downtown.

You share a wall with the owners (a lovely couple), who live on site.

The Nest is only a block away from Little Stacy Park (with an amazing playground under huge oaks and a spring fed toddler pool) as well as the Stacy Park greenbelt, beloved by the Travis Heights neighborhood for its quiet walking/running path. Big Stacy Pool is nearby, a full size spring fed pool that is free to the public, open year round and heated in the winter.

At this time, this property does not allow pets. If you are in need of a pet friendly property please let us know and we'd be happy to make some recommendations.

A courtesy high chair and Pack & Play are available upon request

Reviewer Comments:

This property was nothing fancy but fine for my needs. It was very well stocked and I could walk to the path around Lady Bird lake from the house. The management company was helpful with running the dvd player and also replacing some bulbs that burned out. My only complaint is that the owners of the building who live in the adjoining apartment have their bedroom upstairs above the rental unit. Even the quietest people (which they are) make substantial noise walking above in an older home. I'm not sure this was mentioned in the advertisement.
