Our apartment is perfect for the budget traveler. It's very clean and with about 500 square feet it is spacious enough for 2 guests, although there is a fold out couch if you need it. My wife and I lived here before buying the main house on the property. It was a great place to live and gave us many happy years. I'm sure you will love it too!
Located near Congress and Riverside, just a few blocks away from longtime Austin establishments such as Guero's Taco Bar, The Continental Club, Allen's Boots, and many other amazing restaurants, shops and music venues. The South Congress bridge, where the bats emerge at sunset every evening from March to October, is just a few more blocks away and leads directly into the downtown area only a mile from our apartment, all within walking distance. You can pick up the hike and bike trail at the bridge as well, and it runs for many miles around Lady Bird Lake. Public bike rentals are within a five minute walk on Congress Avenue.
We do provide off street parking for one car.
Rate includes 15% state and local hotel taxes for stays shorter than 30 days.

John's place was an adorable, well-kept space that was a welcome escape after SXSW week was over. He was quick to respond to messages, the place was ready for us right on time, and everything was very easy.
Awesome location, and a great place - will definitely be back!
This is the perfect place to stay in Austin. Super cosy cool place and a short walk away from the bars and restaurants of South Congress. John was a friendly and helpful host.
This really is a perfect Austin location in South Congress! Walking distance to great restaurants and shops! I can't imagine staying in any other area of town. The little cottage is comfortable and cozy and was perfect for our rainy weekend stay. If we return to Austin, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Quite perfect!
John's place was very accommodating. He was able to get me in a few hours early and the place was spotless. The place is very convenient to all of the spots in SoCo. I look forward to visiting again soon.
Our host, John, was just great. He was on the property and available for assistance when needed but totally in the background. My friend and I were comfortable in the apartment and we absolutely loved the location and neighborhood. Close to South Congress and downtown.
Everything was as described and a very convenient drive to the main drag of the South Congress neighborhood, even walkable. After an emergency altered our itinerary, the hosts were helpful enough to clean up the space on short notice so we could check in well ahead of our scheduled arrival time.
