Overview

South Congress House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Our 2BR house, in historical Travis Heights, is the perfect Austin retreat with a unique contemporary charm. Our living room is bright and cheerful with large windows and hardwood floors throughout the main living space. Our living room has a flat screen TV and entertainment center. The living room connects to the dining room, followed by the kitchen area. This main space is perfect for entertaining friends and family, with easy flow between rooms. Our renovated kitchen comes fully-equipped with all new appliances, cookware, and fixtures. Off the side of the kitchen we have a distinctive sun room with plush couches; this is a tranquil space to enjoy your morning cup of coffee and read the paper. Our two bedrooms both come with queen size Tempurpedic beds, original hard wood floors, and impeccable bedding. The shared bathroom is one of a kind with a rare claw-foot bathtub and southern comfort style. Our house has all the comforts of home with authentic Austin style.

Travis Heights is a historic Austin Neighborhood in south downtown. The main attraction of this neighborhood is the proximity to South Congress Avenue. South Congress is full of hip cafes and stores, and attracts many tourists and young professionals from all over the world. South Congress Avenue is an easy four block stroll away or you can walk two blocks to East Riverside Drive; either way, you have access to all the best restaurants, bars and shopping that Austin has to offer. Watch a game on the patio at Doc's, grab a bite at one of the many great restaurants (we recommend Perla's), and then wind down with a nightcap at the Continental Club without ever moving your car. To get to downtown Austin is just as easy: call Uber, a cab, or hop in your car; either way you are just a short three minute drive/ride away.

Reviewer Comments:

Cottage is in a quiet neighborhood super close to restaurants & shops on S Congress. Very comfortable beds and loved having the two separate sitting areas. Could use newer pots since the nonstick were all scratched and needs more kitchen supplies but we ate out while visiting so was not a problem for us. The keruig coffee maker broke on our last morning and the manager sent us a gift card to Starbucks. We enjoyed our stay very much.mwould stay again.

Perfect little cottage

  • 4 of 5

House was just as pictured. Was super close to S. Congress and the river. Great having two seating areas. Only drawback was entrance door goes thru one of the bedrooms which made it awkward when we needed to go out while they were still sleeping.

Charming but worn

  • 3 of 5

This is a sweet house in a charming neighborhood within walking distance to the hottest neighborhood in Austin. I only wish it was cleaner and brighter. The house smelled dirty. The bathroom and kitchen floors weren't very clean, and there were footprints in the dust on some of the tables where someone was probably standing on the table to change a light bulb. And it's silly to have to enter through the front bedroom when there's another door, now locked and bolted, that enters directly into the living room. With better cleaning and fresher window coverings that aren't broken, this house would be a real gem.

Great Location and Size of this property. The beds were very comfortable and appreciated the fresh towels. Everything was in working order. It was however fairly dusty and the backyard/landscaping could use a little help so much so that we did not even go outside.

Rats in Attic

Reviewer Comments:

Horrible, this place had a rodent infestation in their attic. Rented this place for a month & after a week staying there I was woken up 3 nights in a row to loud noises. With this being an older home I understand that this type of house would make some noises but this sounded like something else. After one night taking a family stroll we noticed the light to the attic was on as we walked up to the house. This came as a huge concern since it was not on the previous night we went on a walk & because we had been hearing noises at night. So my husband pulled down the attic door & down came tons of Rat poop, leaves & debris. So we called Turnkey that night & they said they would send someone to the property first thing in the morning fix the problem & clean up the entire toxic poop that was in the attic. So we waited & after not getting call from turn key we left the house around 3:30pm & when we got back to the house 2 ½ hours later & I noticed more rat poop on the floor where that attic door was at & I called Turnkey & asked if someone came to the house because if they did they didn’t clean up after themselves & we never got a call & turnkey said “yes” they had sent some one out while we were gone & took care of the situations & we would no longer have any more issues. So around10:30pm that same night I heard a loud clamp coming from the attic near the attic door & a rodent squeaking loudly for its life & thumping up & down. I was so disgusted & furious that it was not taken care of & that they expected us to stay the remaining time in this house while they caught rats & wait for whoever to come collect the rats as they decomposed & smelled up the house. It was literally the worst night sleep ever. I called turnkey that night & they moved us to a different house, but after using Turnkey several times this is last time we will be using them. We spend way to much money & all we expect is to have a clean house & working equipment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. It was an unfortunate situation and we are very sorry for the ordeal that you and your family had to endure. What sounded like an "infestation" was actually just 2 mice that somehow got into the attic. The traps that were laid out captured both and the source of how they got in has been resolved. Again, we are very sorry for what you and your family went through during your visit. We try very hard to ensure that our guests have a pleasant and enjoyable stay. We hope that you will reconsider using Turnkey in the future. -The TurnKey VR Team
