The Space

This is in the South Congress area of Austin. You get your own house, with your own kitchen, bath, and everything. It's a fully furnished guest house and ready for you... a king bed in the master bedroom, queen in the second bedroom, and a sofa that folds out into a queen bed in the living room.

We're 3 blocks from Homeslice Pizza and the infamous Continental Club, and all the great food and eclectic shopping you could ask for. Cupcakes from an airstream? (website hidden) coffee in town? Check. Mexican Margaritas and BBQ? Check and check.

Our 1930's House is fully furnished in an eco-friendly way, and comes complete with super comfy, all-natural and allergen free beds, as well as full kitchens.

Stay in our house instead of a hotel, and I promise you'll stay here everytime you come back to Austin!

The rate listed is the flat rate with all taxes included (unless a pet fee or extra guest fee needs to be attached/ rate is based on 4 guests).

Interaction with Guests

We can interact as little or as much as you would like.... we are pretty hands off, but love to provide amazing customer service.

The Neighborhood

South Congress has sooo many places to eat, drink, and (website hidden)'s coffee has great beverages and amazing people watching. Big Stacy park is just down the street with a great running path and pool... not to mention Lady Bird Lake not being far, as well.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The location is absolutely the best. The home is very well cared for and the setting is peaceful and full of character. The host are very friendly and attentive. I plan on having this be my new Austin spot to stay.

  • Bj's place is cute, quaint, and in an absolutely fabulous location! It's within walking distance of everything you'd want to see or do on Congress. We walked to South Congress Cafe for breakfast one morning and Perla's for lunch with our (website hidden) was able to accommodated us on short notice, too! He responded quickly and took care of all our needs. I would definitely recommend his place for a larger group. There are several other homes to stay in on the lot, Verde Camp, which seems like a perfect set up for a family or college reunion. Also, his home is within walking distance of downtown. I ran to the trails on Lake Bird Lake which is just shy of downtown, it was about a mile run, so certainly within walking distance. Great way to see the city as well!

  • The home that I stayed in at Bj's Verde Camp was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The grounds are well taken care of - green grass, plants and big trees around the property. Drake avenue is a quiet street with friendly, helpful neighbors, a nice short walk away from south congress, and overall perfect location for enjoying East Austin, downtown, Barton Springs...Bj is a friendly, relaxed host who is quick to help you book and available to help or simply say hello during your stay.

  • The house was the perfect size for 2 couples to share and absolutely adorable! Well decorate and clean, and the king size bed was super comfortable. Walking distance to tons of bars/restaurants in South congress and overall great neighborhood. Loved it and want to go back with a group of several people and rent all 4 homes at once (there are 4 homes on the compound so would be cool to do with a group)

  • Wonderful, cozy property that is well managed by kind folks. Everything you need is within walking distance, and the bikes are a great idea (though it was too cold the days we were visiting). Thanks Leslie, BJ, and Star for making our visit memorable.

  • I did a boys weekend with two old college buddies. We really enjoyed the place - and it was very close to all the activities on South Congress. I would definitely recommend the place.

My wife and I are courteous and generous people. We run a tight ship and our main rule is simply 'leave it like you found it' and 'have a great time in Austin!' We own and operate eight guest houses in Austin, collectively known as 'Verde Camp' (feel free to search for us on the web). We've built up a very good reputation over the last five years, and our Yelp and TripAdvisor reviews reflect that! We hope you'll give us a try.
