About This Listing
Two-story freestanding treehouse in quiet garden oasis in the heart of South Congress bustle! Two queen beds, super high ceilings, brand new full kitchen, wifi, laundry, private balcony, terrace and separate entrance, free parking, and happy vibes!
Hi nice Airbnb folks!
We love our small South Congress Treehouse (500 sq ft), but if you need more space, check out our other listing for "The Coach House Austin on SOCO", which can accommodate up to 6 folks comfortably. The two together form what we have lovingly referred to as the compound for almost 15 years and we have had nothing but lovely experiences with folks coming to perch in our kooky and relaxed neck of the woods.
The treehouse is on South Congress, but tucked in a quiet garden oasis.
Remember. South Austin's unofficial motto is 'we are all here, cause we're not all there'…
The treehouse is a two story guesthouse just off South Congress behind iconic Magnolia Cafe. A five minute walk to shops, a few minutes more to the Hotel San Jose for drinks or the Continental Club for honkytonking or Wednesday night funk, and about a 15 minute run to Town Lake Trail.
There's a BBQ in the backyard and an upstairs balcony that is miraculously shady in summer and sunny in winter. Plus a sweet kitchen for cooking and a built-in nook for working if you have to.
Upstairs you will find a comfy queen size bed and a queen-size loft bed! If you are happy to squeeze there is also a full size fold out couch in living room.
There are two outdoor spaces that make the 'treehouse' as we call it feel even bigger than it is, a private terrace with space to seat 4 comfortably for supper and the above mentioned private deck. Plus guests have free reign of the organic garden and grill station and potential to shnagg bikes for their stay for free.
There is a private washer and dryer and storage space for bikes and parking for cars, wifi, internet streaming and local channels tv, and big time good mojo for a sweet stay in ATX.
There is a big golden doodle on the compound. Make of that what you will. He has become well accustomed to folks perching in the treehouse and will either steer completely clear and/or become your best friend depending on the mood you are in while on holiday! Makes us no never mind either way..
We would be happy to give you recommendations to local haunts, suggestions for undiscovered gems, and introductions to sweet neighbors from whom you can borrow a cup of sugar if'n you decide to get to baking..
We have thoroughly enjoyed our time working with airbnb and are now including our baby venture, the treehouse out back as well, so we look forward to welcoming you to our extended home!
Interaction with Guests
as little or as much as they want. we always respond to requests asap and are often traveling so it really is hard to say if we even cross paths with folks. when we do we've had wonderful experiences meeting new folks who've stayed with us through airbnb.
just yes yes yes. after living all over the world, there's just no place we'd rather be. and we aren't even native texans :)!
yes. bus stop at end of our street will get you anywhere you need to go. car to go and zip car available as well.
Other Things to Note
For anyone with a cable addiction, heads up that we are in recovery and while we have a large HD internet streaming tv (Roku) with netflix and hulu and all the local channels, we no longer are feeding the cable beast, so you'd have to watch the big game at a great bar around the corner instead of in our living room ;).
Be sweet. And we promise to do the same.
Great spot! Cafe behind is awesome for a big breakfast! A lot of stuff around the hood!
Tracy is a great host....very warm and hospitable. She communicated perfectly and in a timely manner before my arrival, explaining location, the fact that she has a dog and a young son, and how to access the unit. When I arrived, there was a lovely welcome amenity package of wine, chips and salsa, a map and guide book. I had my 14 week old puppy with me and she was super cool about her. At one point, the internet was very slow and she spent several hours on the phone with ATT to correct the issue and I never experience another problem. The location is a great....one block off of South Congress and within walking distance to restaurants, shops and food trucks. I had a great time!
What a great spot!! This "treehouse" is very well appointed and in a perfect spot just south of SoCo's busier area (which is just the sort of slightly more relaxed environment after attending SXSW).
Everything is clean and in great working order, with any needed comforts (air, extra heaters, blankets, fans, etc.) already provided.
Tracy was a very gracious hostess, and I'd gladly stay here or in one of her other properties again.
Tracy, perhaps I'll see you next year!
This place was a great find. Location is prime and it is within walking distance of some of the great shops and restaurants of South Congress. Really enjoyed how quaint the house was and I feel like our group had much more fun being bundled together in the house as opposed to having to split up and get pricy hotels downtown. If you're looking to host a group of people that had never been to Austin before (as I was doing) , this place is perfect and has the uniqueness that the rest of Austin conveys and what I think people are looking for when they come to Austin. Even though I had booked this only a few days before our trip, Tracy had everything completely ready for us, clear instructions provided, and even had cookies and beverages awaiting us when we arrived. Would for sure stay here again.
Tracy was so welcoming and responsive to every question that we had. On arrival, there was even a little Austin welcome package that made such a lasting impression!
The location of the treehouse is 2nd to none! It was so convenient to get to downtown and the areas surrounding Austin.
