About the property

Austin, Texas

This colorful, 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom vacation rental house, which we call "Austin Soul," sleeps 6 comfortably, making it perfect for couples or friends looking for an unforgettable ATX experience! Located just steps away from Austin's lively South Congress Avenue, the charming purple and green bungalow is 89 years old but young at heart, featuring a sleek, contemporary interior with plenty of amenities you can't find in a hotel room.


Bedroom 1: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Living Room: Queen Pullout Bed

You'll love relaxing in the living room, where you can stream your favorite Netflix or cable network shows over the ROKU and Google Chromecast devices on the flat-screen TV, or discuss the day's events with your own music streaming through the Bluetooth stereo.

The unique split bedroom arrangement and 2 baths allow ultimate privacy for 2 couples. Additional sleep space is available on the queen pull out sofa in the living room.

Austin is a foodie's paradise, but if you want to have a home-cooked meal, you'll find a fully equipped kitchen complete with granite counter tops and a Weber gas grill out back. When the weather's nice, bring your conversation outside to the backyard and lounge in the colorful adirondack chairs.

The house itself is very comfortable, but it's the location that really makes this home unbeatable for your stay in Austin. Just outside your door is funky South Congress Avenue (SoCo) and crazy South First Street (SoFi). You could easily spend all your time within blocks of the house visiting quirky shops, a vast variety of restaurants and food trucks, or some of Austin's most famous music venues.

You won't need a car here to have a great time - but if you do have a car, you'll really appreciate the passes provided at the property. The nearby CapMetro SoCo Station and B-Cycle kiosk provide additional transportation options and are less than 2 blocks away. If you like using rideshare services, be ready to go, since your driver will arrive within minutes of your call!

When you need a little rest before heading back out for some evening entertainment, 'Austin Soul' provides a quiet oasis. It's difficult to imagine that the busy pedestrian sidewalks of South Congress and South First are so close!


When you stay at 'Austin Soul,' you'll experience the authentic heartbeat of The Live Music Capital of the World, all thanks to its incredible location. The Continental Club, C-Boys, and Guero's Oak Garden are just blocks away. Downtown is rich with music venues, including Austin City Limits Theater, only about a mile away.

Austin also offers plenty of outdoor activities for those who try to work some fitness into their vacation. At Lady Bird Lake, just down the hill from the house, you'll find 10 miles of hiking and biking trails with spectacular city views, canoes, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards.

Just off the trail at Zilker Park is Barton Springs Pool, a 3-acre, natural, spring-fed swimming hole popular for its cold, clear water and sunbathing on its grassy banks. 'Austin Soul' is proud to provide beach towels for all your water adventures!

Whether you're coming for a festival, wedding, foot or auto race, family gathering, football game, convention, or just a little BBQ and music, you might as well stay close to it all.

A stay at "Austin Soul" will leave you with a sense of the old Austin and still provide the modern conveniences you expect. When you're ready to book your trip to the city, check out this vacation rental home!

Stay in this cute house and walk everywhere! Two blocks to bakery, restaurants, shops and only 20 minutes to downtown. Comfortable well-stocked house with private sitting area in backyard and a very helpful and personable host living nearby. Highly recommend.

Rare find at such an idea location!

  • 5 of 5

After many visits to Austin, we have committed ourselves to SOCO rentals each time. We love it and this spot was a first timer..... and the best ever! Everything was totally as described, all and more than you possibly would need for your stay. Just off Congress, it was surprisingly quiet every night we were there. You can literally walk just a few steps to some of Austin's best dining and funky shopping The rooms were excellently furnished,very comfortable and all ample directions for what was available in the house as well as parking, television and WIFI info. Loved it and will return in a heartbeat!

Perfect Getaway Weekend with the Girls!

  • 5 of 5

The home is perfect! My trip this time around was part visiting with my college son and part girlfriend trip; this house fit the bill for both. The location is phenomenal, parking not an issue and the home itself is adorable. Most of the time we ended up leaving the rental car parked as everything was more walk-able than I thought it would be. I have been to Austin many times over the last eight years and would definitely recommend this home for any type of getaway.

Beautiful home ideally located

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Austin was a terrific! Immaculate home with everything you need. Owner was very helpful. No criticisms to offer. The location was an easy walk to awesome restaurants, food trucks and shopping spots. We'd definitely return. For me, we'd think twice before adding the 5th visitor to sleep on the couch pull-out only because the house isn't huge and if you have some early risers and some night owls in your party, it might make it a little tough on that person. Bravo!
