Adorable home in great location

  • 5 of 5

Two girlfriends and I rented this home for a long weekend and we really enjoyed our time in it. The home is tastefully decorated and laid out well for 2-4 people with two bedrooms with very comfortable beds, a large couch for lounging, an updated bathroom, and a full kitchen. It is also a short walk to South Congress street, in a safe neighborhood. The owners also went the extra mile in making sure the home was stocked with toiletries, umbrellas, coffee, muffins, and oranges. I highly recommend this home.

Felt like home in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had never been to Austin, but after this trip we will intend to come back and if so, will certainly stay in this wonderful home again. The house is so comfortable and has everything you could possibly want or need. Tastefully done, plenty of space, well appointed and cannot say enough about the location. What a fun, vibrant neighborhood so close to everything authentically Austin. We walked everywhere we ate, walked to great live music and just enjoyed the house and the neighborhood in general. Jimmy was very responsive, helpful and had some great local suggestions. We use VRBO almost everywhere we travel and it's safe to say this place is at the top of our list of favorites!

Adorable Cottage, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this adorable, bright, and cozy cottage during my wedding weekend in Austin. The home is decorated with lots of white and neutral colors, giving it a very peaceful feeling (helpful during wedding stress!), plus lots of windows provide excellent natural light. We loved the bathroom with the clawfoot tub and walk-in shower, and beautiful marble countertop. The master bed was super comfy, with a fluffy comforter and lots of pillows. The kitchen was also well stocked with any cooking and dining accoutrements we needed. The location is great, you can walk to Torchy's on SOCO in about 5 minutes, and Homeslice in 10, but it was still quiet outside despite being so close to SOCO. The only thing I noticed the home was lacking was a dock for iphones/ipod to play music - but really, that's being nitpicky. We loved staying here and it felt like home! Hoping to go back for a future anniversary!

This rental was perfect for a three day weekend. Not real big and only one bathroom but it was clean, modern and comfortable. The location couldn't have been better. It's within walking distance to the shops, pubs and restaurants on South Congress. The owner was very easy to work with and check-in and check-out were a snap. We would definitely stay here again.

A Great, Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

While we are in Austin we usually stay with friends, but this trip we came down for ACL Festival and we wanted a place convenient to all the great things Austin has to offer. The neighborhood was quiet, and so close to lots of restaurants, and shopping. We loved walking to Polvo's, and other great restaurants on South 1st Street as well as South Congress!

The house was so adorable, and so well decorated. The cottage was very comfy, it was nice to spend some down time in between activities at the house. I have never slept so well!

Jimmy was very easy to deal with, we had no problems communicating and getting info on how to get in the house. He was very helpful and sweet.

We loved staying here, it was very hard to leave.
