Chris is a fabulous host. The place is quaint and the location is top notch. Close to tons of great ATX eats. Make sure to tell the goats HI! The temp was above 104 degrees during our trip in June, so Chris made sure to stock the fridge with lots of cold water. He really goes above and beyond for his guest.

Really enjoyed by brief business stay at Chris' bungalow. Very authentic Austin decor married with the benefits of the latest technology. Would certainly stay again if returning to the South Congress area.

This was such an amazing spot. You can walk to The Soup Peddler and Bouldin Creek, two of my fave Austin spots for grub. Chris was such a great host. He had tons of suggestions for my visit and really made me feel at home. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get a real Austin experience.

Chris and the SOCO Cottage made for an amazing trip! Chris was knowledgeable about all of the quirky and fun things to do in the area and even took us for a quick tour of Austin upon check-in! The SOCO Cottage was in a PERFECT location for walking, riding, and taking a short Uber ride to everything we could possibly want to do/see while in Austin! The Airbnb was perfectly decorated, clean, comfortable, and stocked with items we may have forgotten and needed. We couldn't have been happier!

Chris' place in SoCo was a great home base for our visit to Austin for two nights. We loved getting to meet the dogs and goats! A very unique and comfortable find. Very central to anything we wanted to see and do, and we walked most places. Would definitely tecommend and stay here again.
