The space

Please contact us before booking to confirm availability. We've added a 51" TV and some new furniture so it's even better now!

Come stay in our cute 1930's cottage/bungalow. Our house is located right off of South Congress, close to all of the shops, restaurants, and food trailers the area is known for. Only 2 miles south of Downtown and a 10-15 minute walk to the middle of the SoCo action. Easy bus access as well (1L)!

The house is located on a quiet and safe street in the Travis Heights neighborhood (the best in all of Austin). There is a small park and pool nearby as well as easy access to the river and the hike and bike trail.

Our modern/mid-century decorated home is open and light with wood floors throughout. There are 2 bedrooms and 1 bath with a claw foot tub! The master bedroom has a king size bed with a memory foam mattress (the best sleep I have ever had) and the second bedroom has a queen size bed. I am serious about my sleep and can guarantee that the beds and bedding will be comfy and relaxing.

We also have a sofa bed in the living room and if needed we can set up an air mattress in the office. The kitchen has everything you'll need and we also have a brand new fancy front loading washer and dryer for your use.

AND! We have a screened in porch to relax or congregate with friends. We also have: wifi, flat screen TV, DVD player, Apple TV, wii, and BBQ grill.

Dogs live here but they won't be present for your stay. We will dust and vacuum before you arrive!

Please let me know if you have any questions. Here are some of the fun things close by:
- Activities: Zilker Park, Barton Springs, Little/Stacy Pool, Lady Bird Johnson Hike & Bike Trail, South Congress Bridge Bats

- Don't forget the Contential Club and plenty of shopping and vintage stores!

We had a terrific time! The house was super clean, with the most comfortable beds ever. We loved the screened-in porch, spacious back yard, and minimalist design. Carol and Byron answered all of our questions speedily, and left us plenty of Topo Chico (a must in the rising heat!)…

We had such a lovely stay at Carol's cottage in SoCo. It is so clean and quiet and was such a wonderful refuge from SXSW. It is close to so many great restaurants and shops and a very pleasant and easy walk or bus into town. We all agreed that one of our favorite things about our…
