Enjoy this spacious, well decorated comfortable bungalow one block from South Congress in the HEART of SOCO. Close to Zilker Park, Barton Hills, Travis Heights, and Downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I loved this place! It was everything they advertised. Very clean and comfy. Very roomy. I loved the leather furniture and large TV. The kitchen was fully stocked and they even had a washer and dryer! And the bed was so comfortable. I didn’t want to get up! But you can’t stay in bed when you’re in the heart of SoCo. There are great restaurants, café’s, and coffee shops all up and down the street. I loved browsing in the various shops that are all different from each other. Everything from a world bazaar type shop to an old fashioned candy shop to the biggest costume shop I’ve ever seen! And the food trailers were something you don’t usually see. They had everything from BBQ trailers to cupcake trailers. Zilker Park was less than 3 miles away (an easy walk) and you could even walk to the entertainment district downtown if you wanted. Austin is known for its downtown nightlife. The neighborhood was amazingly quiet though. You’d never know you were that close to so much energy. The owners were extremely accommodating and responded to every request very quickly. They are really nice people, who are a lot of fun on top of that! I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a weekend (or more) in the best part of Austin. Well worth the price!

Great location and perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This bungalow was the perfect home base for our site seeing trip in Austin. The SoCo location was ideal for walking to eat or shop in this cute little neighborhood! Sheri & Elliot were helpful and responsive but left us to ourselves! The perfect hosts!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Such a fantastic experience! I stayed with them for an entire month - what great hosts. Their door was always open to me if I needed anything. The huge tv had all the great channels, the bed was super comfortable (I wanted to take the pillows :)). The kitchen completely stocked with anything you need from the Keurig to pots/pans to silverware. Big couch in living area. Great wi-fi. Loved the adjustable shower head too. Felt very safe walking the dog around the neighborhood at any time. Thank you for a lovely stay - I would go back in a heart beat.

July 4th Weekend visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this location. The owners were very accommodating and very nice. We brought dogs for the 4th of July weekend and for a convention. Our pups enjoyed walking through the very quiet neighborhood (which is funny, because it's right off South Congress, a busy street).

The location is great. You are just a few blocks from the main shopping and food and a few minute from downtown.

The rental was very comfortable, clean and spacious. Like I said, the Mitchells were awesome. We will definitely be staying with you guys again!

Awesome Property in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We could not have happier with our choice of properties for our Austin trip. Elliott and Sheri were incredible hosts! They provided us with great recommendations for restaurants, especially where to find the best brisket! They also took time to go over in detail restaurant choices both that were walkable and those that we needed to take our car. You could tell how proud they are of their wonderful city.

The property itself has everything you need. The kitchen was well equipped, washer/dryer available in the cottage, great flat screen TV and a Tempur-pedic mattress in the bedroom. Would definitely stay with them again on future trips.
