About this listing
One block from South Congress, our cozy 2 bedroom house is the perfect spot for an Austin visit. In walking distance from South Congress and/or 1st street - and a 2 minute cab ride to the heart of downtown.
Other Things to Note
While we do have a large driveway, the streets are narrow. Please use extreme caution when cars are parked in the street as it can become very challenging to navigate when exiting the driveway.
This is a quite and well kept neighborhood. Please be respectful of our neighbors.
The house was a lot older than we anticipated. I would say the pictures don't show the true size of the bathroom either. Very hard to share with 4 people. Water pressure in shower was very low, and shower did not drain. When we first arrived at house there were crumbs on the floor that were sticking to my feet which made me feel like the house was not cleaned thoroughly. Master bed was very comfortable. There was no toilet paper or paper towels, we had to have a friend bring a roll over when she came to get us. The garbage disposal in the kitchen did not work so the house smelt like the food we ate the night before and was not the best. Water condensation was coming through the roof and floor during the big storm on Saturday. Is that normal for an old house? Overall, the house was fine but everyone staying there did not feel clean and it was pretty cramped so we decided to leave a night early.
My friends and I stayed here while attending a wedding in Austin and we loved it.. it was perfect for 3 people. It is tastefully decorated, clean, spacious and comfortable particularly nice with air con to escape the humidity. The location was brilliant - after having stayed one night in a hotel in downtown Austin i much preferred this location which was very peaceful and a short stroll to south congress shops and restaurants. To get into Austin was a short uber ride so it was no problem to get around. John was an awesome host… he always responded promptly and kindly went out of his way to help us with a coat hanger shortage!
The house was awesome, very cozy and with a lot of personality. We felt right at home. It was also right in the middle of S Congress, walking distance to all kinds of restaurants, shops, etc... I would highly recommend this spot to anyone going to Austin. John was super easy to connect with. Thanks!
We had a great experience and everything advertised was delivered. John was in touch whenever we had questions and gave us helpful tips. The house is clean and larger than I expected. The king bed was extremely comfortable and the linens were all in great shape. The house is located on a cute street with numerous live oaks and is within walking distance to a bunch of cool shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, etc. Highly recommended!
John was a great host, the house is perfect and we had a lovely stay in Austin. I would come again and warmly recommend John's house. Thanks!
We really enjoyed our stay in this fantastic and very cozy house. The location was great. John is a very attentive host and made us feel welcome. Looking forward to a return visit.
