The space

Hi nice Airbnb folks!

We love our small South Congress Treehouse (550 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 8 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 full size bed and a queen-size loft bed! If you are happy to squeeze there is also an additional full size fold out couch in the living room downstairs.

The treehouse is as open plan as a small studio can be, so in terms of privacy, think expanded tiny house more than miniature mansion ... Upstairs, the beds and bathroom are all packed into a small space, sweet configuration from our standpoint, but we are also assuming you are traveling with folks you know and love well :)

There are two outdoor spaces that make the treehouse feel bigger than it actually 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.

You have your own 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!

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 you need.

We are kind of airbnb evangelists.... we have had such a sweet time hosting. We look forward to having you experience ATX as our guests soon!

Guest access


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.

The neighborhood

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 :)!

Getting around

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 ;). Also, while we love to host your four-legged family members, there is a $50/night charge for pets fyi.

This was an awesome space. Tucked away-quiet and comfy for sleeping, but close to everything we wanted to do-shop, eat, hear music. Host was so nice and gave us many great suggestions that were spot on. Will make this space our Austin stop in the from here on.

The treehouse was perfect for my best friend and I on our long weekend trip to Austin. We usually stay at hotels off of South Congress because we love the area and Tracy's location was just what we were looking for- you are steps away from all the food and shopping you can handle. The backyard was beautiful and we really enjoyed all of the outdoor seating areas! We will definitely be coming back!

A super cute, quaint location literally feet from the Magnolia Cafe and all that South Congress has to offer. It is a completely open loft with minimal privacy, so it's great for small families or very close friends. The house was very clean and inviting with a secluded yard and private exit out the back. Amenities were minimal but sufficient for an extended stay in Austin.
