Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this location for our trip to SXSW. It was such a perfect home base for us and so convenient. Close enough to walk to everything, but also quiet and not right in the middle of all the craziness - couldn't ask for a better spot! Really lovely, clean, and comfortable space for us to relax and decompress from the festival. Dominique was an incredible host and I highly recommend her property to anyone looking to stay in Austin.

Great Stay and Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks in March, and it exceeded our expectations every step of the way.

Fantastic location - walking distance to downtown AND to all the great shops and restaurants on South Congress; moments from Torchy's, Threadgills, and Guerro's, as well as the Long Centre, Auditorium Shores etc.

The place is huge, with a full kitchen, dining room, private patio, and much more..and best of all, it's impeccably clean! The service was stellar from the first time we contacted Dominique to inquire about a booking - she always got back to me within a few hours, answered all of our questions, and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable experience.

We've stayed in a LOT of different places in Austin over the last 10 years, and this has easily been the best place we've stayed. HIGHLY recommended!!

Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I went to a wedding in Austin & the bride told us to search in VRBO because it would be more affordable & more comfortable place as opposed to a hotel. I'm glad I did. I had never heard of VRBO. This was a cute condo, very clean & spacious. Love that I was able to bring my furbaby Toby. He loved the little backyard & he enjoyed all the squirrels that would be scurrying around there. . This is a great location. There are some restaurants & food trucks within walking distance. Congress street is close by & my puppy & i went to a nearby small trail & the following day we went to the trail under the Bat Bridge which was only 5 min walking distance. The only thing was kind of scary was the entrance to the parking lot because it was sort of steep & you could see where a few cars had hit the bottom of their cars. Anyway, we were careful driving in & out, though. It also had a dvr to play movies, & there were books & game boards to play but we were busy with wedding stuff & sightseeing, we didn't have time to use them but it's a great touch. Also there is coffee available for you to make. All in all, it's a great cozy place. I have already recommended this site to a few people. We enjoyed our stay at this property. Thanks Dominique. :)

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed at this rental the first weekend of SxSW and had a wonderful time! Dominique was extremely accommodating and Abel was so helpful! Originally concerned since we wouldn't be right in the downtown area we quickly realized this was even better - we were within walking distance to the SoCo area (full of cute shops and restaurants) and only a 10 minute Uber drive (if that) to Rainy and 6th street. At the end of each night we were easily able to go home to a quiet, relaxing spot. Overall a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! Yes ...This place is great because is quiet yet walking distance to downtown and or south congress ...You get the luxury of peace and quiet nestled in a private nook then right down the street all the hub-bub of downtown living , south 1st street food trucks restaurants and shops ...If its raining hard or super hot a bike ride or uber is the trick

Clean, perfect location, wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 8 month old had a wonderful stay in Austin. The location was perfect to get anywhere you wanted to go. Easy walk to some great food trucks on 1st Street and a quick walk over to South Congress. Easy drive to the city or over to Zilker park to enjoy the outside activities. Dominque was so helpful and we really enjoyed our stay in her home. We will definitely be making another trip back to Austin. We have already told 2 friends about this property as well for their upcoming trips. Would highly recommend!

Very clean, has everything you forgot at home!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect. Austin was very wet this weekend and the property was loaded with extra towels and linens. We were able to find local attractions with the guidance from the welcome letter that was sent to us with confirmation. Thank you for making us feel right at home.

This beautiful home is located right in the center of it all.

Walk only a few blocks to Lady Bird Lake where you can hike & bike with the view of the lake on one side and the downtown Austin skyline on the other.Although the property is tucked back and away from the noisy street.... Everything is just a hop skip and a jump away.From the classic tourist frenzy of 6th street fame to the lowdown blues & Jazz clubs such as Elephant room or Continental club on on South Congress...You name it... Top rated restaurants close .. Austin convention center ..Palmer Event Center Long Center..ACL..Moody Theatre..Auditorium Shores...Seventh Flag and Austin Java Coffee houses..Best music venues rated by Austin and much much more only a stones throw away.

The home has bamboo floors. No carpet.High End furniture from Four Hands, Copenhagen and special pieces created by some of my favorite Austin Artists.The paintings on the wall can be purchased if so desired and proceeds go to the artists. The beds are modern platform so you can get wrapped into a deep sleep to prepare you to wake up ready to enjoy.
