About Deacon

What's there to say, very laid back guy who loves Austin. I'm usually running the Hike & Bike trail, Stand Up Paddling the lake or watching live music somewhere in Austin.

Deacon purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Deacon chose South Congress

I've lived in just about every part of Austin. After 20 years there is no better Austin experience that living in the dead center of the action.

South Congress is center of the Austin Universe. From the food trailers to the off the wall antique stores to the restaurants and clubs it's the Austin you've heard about.

What makes this townhome unique

Walk there, stumble home.

Just 3 blocks from Congress you can walk there and stumble home, really.

I live across the street but you'll probably never meet me. I'm usually on the go.

Need a recommendation (cab, restaurant, bar, something to do) ask or send me a text. Been here 20 years so I know the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location and very easy to check-in. He contacted me by email throughout my stay to insure everything was satisfactory.

Perfect location, with an easy ride to downtown. Even walked to a few good meals in the neighborhood.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable place for us to stay - the beds were super comfy! Deacon, the owner, was so helpful and easy to reach. We would definitely stay here again!

Elevator Saves The Day

  • 5 of 5

We booked knowing that my wife would be on a scooter/crutches because of a broken foot. Not many two bedrooms in Austin had two queen beds and were accessible for the mobility impaired. This unit fits both criteria. It is two stories, but has a FREAKIN' ELEVATOR. Finding that feature made our trip feasible.

The location is great. Quiet street with a few things in easy walking distance, and everything just a short ride away. Easy access from the interstate too.

The first floor bathroom has handrails.

The unit was clean and well kept. The minimal wear and tear was nothing to be concerned with.

Strong WiFi throughout the house.

Comfortable sofa and beds. Good water pressure and temps.

There was no access to dedicated parking but we were able to street park two cars directly in front of the unit, without any problems, all weekend.

The lower floor bedroom is right along a driveway to the back of the complex, but with our travel white noise machine, we didn't hear anything.

Good booking. Good value.

Missing Simple Things...

  • 2 of 5

The condo is in a good spot for Austin...but you will need to Uber or rent a car to get around. Unfortunately when we got there; no towels, no toilet paper, unclean dishes still in the dish washer. These to me are simple things that should have been right. We also had issues with the front door lock but luckily the owner was available via phone to give us an alternative code. Btw...the picture isn't the exact condo. Overall our experience could have been better.

Good location, good value

  • 4 of 5

Location was in easy walking/RideAustin distance to everywhere that we wanted to go in Austin. The place is quite clean and in a quiet, safe neighborhood.

Some VERY easy details would make this place 5 star: trash cans in the bathrooms/bedrooms, full sets of towels for both bathrooms (rather than odds and ends), liquid soap dispensers for the sinks, maybe a few toiletries to get you started (like in a hotel?). Most places that we've visited (whether VRBO or AirBnB) provide this. Maybe take away the lamp that doesn't work in the "marlin" room?

Great bones, just a little tired.

(we actually were changed to a different unit in the same complex (which was not a problem, and the owner let us know in advance), but I'm assuming the situation is the same in this one)

Nearest Airport
5 Miles
Austin Bergstrom
Car: not necessary

Just steps from South Congress and about 1 mile from Townlake and great running on the hike & bike trail. The home comes with 2 bikes so you can ride to great restaurants and clubs.

Make sure to check out a show at the Continental club and have a few drinks at the San Jose. There are too many places to recommend for dinner, just pick a place they're all great. From Mexican to Italian to hamburgers the food on South Congress is easily some of the best in Austin.
