About the property

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!

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 cottage, great location, great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage could not have been more perfect for our visit to Austin. Having a separate living space from the bedroom made it more desirable than a hotel. It was a short walk to shops and restaurants, so we hardly ever had to use our car, and free off-street parking was very nice to have. The hosts were very accommodating and friendly. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Austin.

Can't wait to come back and hang out

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodations and great hosts. The property is clean, convenient and comfortable. We were in town for business at the capitol so it was an easy 10 minute drive from the cottage. Wish we could have stayed a few more days to try some more of the neighborhood restaurants. We did make it to Perlas and Elizabeths both recommended by our hosts and both were excellent. Thank you Sheri and Elliott for having us at the cottage - we hope to return when our schedule is less hectic so we can really explore the neighborhood. Cheers!

Clean, quiet, comfortable (pet friendly) & well located Austin cottage hosted by two amazing owners!

  • 5 of 5

It is rare to find hosts that are so caring, so present and such a pleasure to have on property. The units are detached, so you still have the feeling of privacy and exclusivity many people want in their rental. The hosts are Austin natives and know the area quite well, so they can also be incredibly helpful and resourceful.

Their serene property is located in walking distance to some incredible local landmarks and one the best walking streets in all of Austin: "SoCo." When we needed a few things for our stay or some help with solving some travel challenges, they responded immediately and graciously.

We couldn't recommend them more highly! One thing is certain, you will have a flawless stay at their cozy cottage. Also, that Queen size Tempur-pedic mattress made all the difference in the world!
