Austin Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

SoCo Cottage w/ 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, sleeps 2-4 w/ 700 sf, washer/ dryer

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. Great place to stay for Music Festivals, right in the thick of it! Walk to great restaurants, nighttime entertainment, attractions, eclectic shopping, and more! Sink into the Tempur-Pedic mattress for a great night's sleep, then wake to walk to the hike and bike trail along Lake Ladybird. On the way back, stop to enjoy a great cup of joe at one of the many outstanding coffee shops and bistros. Have lunch at an acclaimed SoCo restaurant or try a food trailer for an exciting change of pace!

ACL? Less than three miles. SXSW? Just blocks away to enjoy a multitude of entertainment options, less than two miles to downtown.

Of course you will enjoy all the comforts when you return from your adventures. Cozy well-appointed furnishings, a fully stocked kitchen, a 50' plasma HDTV in the living room with Blueray and Smart amenities, and that wonderful Tempur-Pedic bed and 32' LCD HDTV in the bedroom! What's not to like?

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!

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here while in town for a wedding at Mercury Hall. The location is perfect for exploring South Congress. The cottage is exactly as pictured. Elliott and Sheri greeted us when we arrived and made a point to stop by on our last day there. They sent us an email ahead of our visit with all of the information we could possibly need for our stay - especially all of their restaurant recommendations. They were also extremely accommodating with our early arrival and late check out. We would definitely stay here again!

Comfortable and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for three nights while in town for a family wedding. The owners were very helpful and friendly, sending us local tips before our trip and greeting us upon arrival. The cottage was clean and comfortable, with nice amenities. The bed was extremely comfortable and we enjoyed the front porch for our morning coffee. We were a short walk to all of SoCo. We would definitely stay again.

Loved this SoCo cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this perfect SoCo cottage! The owners, Elliott and Sheri, were extremely nice and helpful before and during our stay. The cottage was so clean and cozy...just as pictured and described in the ad and in the earlier reviews. We liked it so much that we chose to watch the LSU game on the big screen TV, in the comfort of our cottage vs. going out to the local sports bar. This is a perfect location for anything that you want to do in Austin. Great restaurants are just steps away or just a short drive to downtown and Zilker Park. And even though we were only 1 block off of S. Congress, where the action is, you would never know it because it was oh so quiet! We would definitely stay at this charming, adorable SoCo cottage again and have already recommended it to friends who plan on visiting Austin. We fell in love with the city and the cottage and we are already planning our next trip! Thank you Elliott and Sheri for sharing your lovely cottage! Hope to see you again soon!

Delightful cottage in SOCO

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in central Austin. Very clean and tidy little cottage and kitted out with everything we needed for our stay, which on this occasion was one month. It is tucked away on a quiet street just off South Congress so within walking distance of shops and some good restaurants.

The delightful owners, Sheri and Elliot live next door and were always attentive to any little request we had . We want to keep this gem our secret so hopefully nobody reads this review.

Great hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a wonderful experience staying at Sherri and Elliot's bungalow. Their hospitality was second to none and they always had great suggestions on great things to do in austin. They always had a quick and helful response whenever contacted. They went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and right at home. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here when looking for a great location to stay in Austin.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was fantastic. Nice amount of room, well decorated, clean and well stocked with everything someone would want. Owners Elliott and Sherri are very nice and had great recommendations for places to eat. LA Barbeque was unbelievable with quite honestly melt in your mouth brisket. The bungalow is on a quite street but right off of south Congress so easily accessible to shopping, music and great food. We had a wonderful time and kept saying to each other how nice it was to keep coming back to the bungalow.
