Truly enjoy Austin in the heart of South Congress. Head south to experience weird and delicious delicacies, or north to see the bats and downtown. This is how you have the full Austin experience.

The Space

This spacious apartment comes with the coolest king-size bed you have ever seen. Feel like a lord in the Game of Thrones when you sleep here.

The kitchen area is fully stocked with oven, stove, dishwasher and refrigerator. All new silverware and dish ware.

Far and away the best part about this apartment is the location. If you want to really experience the city of Austin, there is no better place to be. South Congress has everything you come for. Lady Bird Lake (w/ paddle boarding), food trucks, Colorado River (where you can see huge flocks of bats) are only a few blocks away. You're literally directly across the street from the famous "i love you so much." graffiti mural on Jo's Coffee. A block north is the Hopdoddy Burger Bar, arguably one of the most famous restaurants in Austin.

Besides food, South Congress has tons of great boutique shopping you can't find anywhere else. If shopping trips was on your agenda for your Austin trip, you'll be spending all your time on this street.

If you want to go see Zilker Park (the site of ACL) or the Barton Creek swimming holes, just head a little west. Keep on the following the river up to Mount Bonnell for one of the most beautiful views you've ever seen. This is definitely a central point if you're coming to experience the outdoors in Austin.

There is Wi-Fi coming from the router in the apartment, so you won't be sharing it with anyone and slowing your connection. The 46" LCD is hooked up to Apple TV loaded with a complimentary paid Netflix account.

All sheets and towels are washed after every single stay by the local EcoClean laundromat, the most environmentally friendly laundromat in Austin, so everything will be very clean for your stay.

A great location for ACL, SXSW, Formula 1 or really any event in Austin. No more dealing with the crowded and expensive hotels downtown. Have your own apartment to get the true Austin experience.

We will always be in communication and there for you in case you need help with anything.

We hope you choose to stay.

  • The StateHouse apartment is truly like having your own place in Austin, and the location could not be better. The bed is amazing, as is the couch, and with a full kitchen, balcony, pool, and washer/dryer, you couldn't ask for more. Hunter and the rest of the crew were quick to respond to any questions/requests. And as I said, the location is prime Austin, right in the middle of all kinds of unique and great shopping, restaurants and bars, and local attractions. I would definitely stay there again.

  • We had a wonderful experience staying here. The place is very nice and the location is amazing, in the midst of great restaurants, coffee shops and bars. We rented bikes (which we highly recommend!) and all of the great Austin attractions were easily reached by bike - Zilker Park, Barton Springs, downtown, Rainey Street. In addition, we reached out to the owner with a question and received an immediate response. We would definitely recommend this place to others.

  • The apartment and location were excellent. It was the perfect place to come back to every spending a long day at the X-Games. I have stayed at dozens of hotels in Austin over the years, but I'm going to definitely make this my go to place when in Austin.

  • Our stay with Mspaces was absolutely perfect! The apartment is beautiful very clean! Not to mention the location was in the heart of Soco which has many nice shops, restaurants and some nightlife. The apartment is also conveniently located right next to downtown Austin(2 minute
    trolley, short bike ride/walk).

  • This place was great! I only wish we had an extra night to spend here. Literally right in the heart of SoCo, perfect location.

  • The hosts, MSpaces could not have been better. They responded really quickly to any questions and they ensured everything ran smoothly. A really friendly and professional bunch of people. The apartment is fantastic, has everything you need. Washer/dryer and Apple TV very welcome. SoCo neighbourhood is great for hanging out, very relaxed, loads of places to eat and drink, really safe - you have everything here. Loved Downtown Austin too but was always glad to get back to SoCo, it's a much nicer area to stay. Highly recommend MSpaces and this apartment

  • Stayed here with a couple of friends when we came to Austin for a friend's wedding. The place was gorgeous and exceeded our expectations - clean and super comfortable. It combined the comfort and security of a private home with the clean anonymous environment of a hotel - conveniences like a Brita pitcher and washer/dryer with detergent and dryer sheets, but no creepy feelings or constant reminders that you are in someone else's house. We especially enjoyed laying out by the pool and eating our breakfast from Jo's on the balcony.

    The bed truly is awesome - I am something of a diva about my sleep environment and I really appreciated the fluffy down pillows and comforter. My friends were comfortable on the couch and the air mattress as well. We took advantage of the huge TV and Hulu Plus account to watch some of our favorite shows - a great added bonus.

    The location was absolutely perfect for our needs - I had previously stayed in the SoCo neighborhood and prefer it to downtown. A lot of the wedding activities were in downtown but we had no problem walking or grabbing a cab. Everyone we talked to about where we were staying commented on how ideal the location was.

    The only downside to our stay was that a package I had shipped to myself (Rent the Runway) went missing - UPS had confirmed delivery the day before my arrival, but when I arrived it wasn't there. The package room in the State House information center didn't have it either - they said they had a new UPS driver who delivers directly to the apartment door, so my fear is that someone might have taken it. Obviously this wasn't MSpaces fault - Rent the Runway shouldn't have shipped it so early (I had given them the exact dates I would be there). Hunter was really responsive and helpful with this issue, and RTR was able to overnight me a new dress that was delivered to the package room the next day - just a word of caution to anyone planning on shipping packages to this address during your stay.

    Overall it was a fabulous experience and I hope to stay here again next time I'm in Austin!
