Private studio apartment on south Congress behind magnolia Cafe. This is a garage apartment in my back yard. It has a separate entrance that leads right out on to S. Congress or you can chill in the yard or up on the big deck above the garage. I'm in the residential neighborhood bordering S. Congress Ave in the SOCO district.
Privacy, WiFi, your own kitchen, bathroom and bedroom Maple floors and a great location with a queen size bed. You can walk to anything down town or take a $6 cab.
There is also a bus stop across the street. All the restaurants and shops of South Congress are a few steps out the door. Check my other listing for recommendations, under South Congress private room.
The yard in fenced and very dog friendly. I have two dogs of my own.
This place is in a great location, just a few blocks from all the shops on South Congress. The apartment was as described and perfect for our stay. It was clean on our arrival, and stocked with the essentials. Our only issue was getting the key; I tried to contact Matt prior to arriving, and didn't hear anything back. When we got there, no one was home to get us a key. However, we did find an excellent way to pass the time (headed down to the street to eat dinner). Matt called in about an hour and we got the key no problem. All in all, we were pretty happy with the place!
So, this will be a double review, since we added on an additional night without doing a new reservation. Positives all around!
This location was so perfect! It seemed quiet and secluded, but was near steps away from the Congress St. location of Magnolia's (my favorite!). Matt was good about answering texts and emails and the place was well equipped!
The perfect location, this cozy self contained unit is exactly as described. The rear entry spills out onto S Congress Ave and very easy to duck out for a morning coffee or Bloody Mary. Matt was communicative and accommodating to a couple of requests we had. Would stay again.
Perfect location, clean and easy to access. The unit is exactly what was described and most issues from other reviewers have been remedied. There is also a TV and cable with every movie channel added in the bedroom. The back door leads right out onto South Congress which made it very easy to access shops and restaurants. The unit was clean, the bed comfy, and having a full kitchen was helpful to keep leftovers/make snacks. I never met the host but he was accessible by phone in case anything was amiss. Wonderful stay and I would most definitely book here again.
The studio location could not have been more perfect for my exploration weekend in Austin! Matt was quick to respond when I had questions and even let us check in a few hours early. The apartment was clean and met our expectations!
This place was great! Amazing location and comfy settings inside the studio. Mat was great and responded to my many questions in a timely manner. Highly recommend this spot!

About the Host, SoCoBnB /Matt
I live in Austin Texas but grew up in Eugene Oregon. I've lived in Colorado for many years and Asia for two years. I'm a photographer, a skier, a cyclist and a climber who loves the mountains. Traveling and meeting interesting new people is my favorite part of life. Airbnb is a great way to make both things happen. I'm always happy to meet other travels and swap stories even if you're not staying with me. I've lived in Austin for a long time and know it well if you're looking for advice.
I keep my house pretty nice but love to rough it when I travel. My favorite places are Haiti, China, India and Eastern Europe.
We're not here for a long time, so we might as well be here for a good time.
