The Space

Renovation was finished in October 2013 with ultra-quiet heating and cooling unit, separate entrance, dedicated parking for one car, and well-appointed en suite bath.

The kitchenette has a mini fridge, microwave, Nespresso coffee maker, and assorted dinnerware. PLEASE READ description through to the bottom: "Other Things to Note."

Guest Access

Guests have access to a large shady backyard and entertaining area, complete with fire pit for use during the colder months.

Interaction with Guests

We will be present during your stay, but we respect our guests' privacy and recognize that this is often an alternative option for those seeking peace and quiet that they couldn't otherwise get in a hotel. Check-in and check-out are completely self-sufficient and we rarely meet our guests.

The Neighborhood

Located in the heart of South Congress, this guest studio is a 10-minute walk to all of Soco's famed shopping and restaurants. A quick 5-minute drive, or a walk to the nearby bus stop, will bring you Downtown. This is the ideal spot for travelers looking for peace and quiet in a historic neighborhood with a distinct “South Austin" feel.

Getting Around

The airport is a short 20-minute drive, depending on time of day, and there are bus routes nearby if you're comfortable walking. Austin's bus system is reliable, but we recommend getting a car while you're in town. You will be able to park your car in our driveway during your stay.

Other Things to Note

INTERNET: is NOT listed as an amenity. We have (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Fiber which you do have access to, but some guests have reported spotty wifi reception.

TELEVISION: There is NO TV in this home.

HOT WATER: While the water tank is not shared with the main house, it will run out of hot water after 15 minutes. It takes 30 minutes or so to recharge. Please be aware.

1. Read the description thoroughly before booking.
2. We recognize that we are being paid to provide a service: a safe, clean, quiet, and comfortable place to sleep, shower, and store your things during your stay. Please understand that we have jobs, families, and obligations apart from Airbnb. Calls, texts, and emails after 9pm will addressed the next morning.
3. Communication: Please do not bang on our doors or windows to get our attention. The dogs will bark and we have an infant son who is easily woken. We provide our cell number so that you can reach us easily by calling or texting. Please call us with your urgent requests and if we're home, we'll meet you outside immediately.
4. Check-In / Check-Out: Late check-out and early check-in requests need to be determined at the time of booking.
5. Parking: The driveway is yours to park in during your stay. If you would prefer to park on the street in one of the two spots in front of our house, just let us know and we'll move a car to the driveway.
6. Noise: Please be mindful of noise after 8pm if you are in the backyard. Though the yard is wooded and private the sound carries to our neighbors.
7. Additional Guests: You are welcome to bring up two additional guests onto our property with prior notification, however they cannot stay the night.
8. Fire Pit: When you're done using the fire pit, douse the flames THOROUGHLY (no smoke or steam coming from the pit) with the hose in the back of the guest house and turn off the water when you're done. *Failure to do so will result in the loss of your security deposit.* Texas is dry and failing to watch or properly douse a fire puts you and everyone in our neighborhood at risk.

On Fridays and Saturdays the minimum stay is 2 nights.

Nicole is a NYC transplant and Chris is an Austin native. When we're not running around town with our family, we're soaking up the city's food, art, and music scene. We're diehard fans of the Soco neighborhood so when you ask as what to do and see, we're going to be a little biased :-)
