House - Entire home/apt · Eva St, Austin, TX 78704, United States

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This studio is in a great location, only a few minutes walk to South Congress stores and cafes. The studio has its own entrance and shares a nice backyard with the beautiful main house. Had a great time and definitely recommend!

  • This studio is as advertised and I found all of the previous reviews to be accurate, but it is unfortunately not a perfect find. A lot of the details in the apartment are shoddy, including a lack of light fixtures, an absent smoke detector, and a 5-foot high shower head. As previously mentioned, the location is great, it is very clean and quiet, and Matt was accommodating on the phone.

  • The location of this place is amazing. I mean you really can't get better. your back door literally opens onto south congress. The space itself is very minimal. If you don't plan on spending that much time in your room (which we were not), and just want to experience Austin. A great place. The bed was VERY comfortable. The water pressure in the shower though was really really low. We never actually met Matt, but he was great in getting us in and set up safe and sound.

  • Great spot! Comfortable, private, and has great access to South Congress. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    February 2014
  • This beautiful and cozy SoCo studio is a gem in spectacular location. Matt is an intelligent and kind person who is great to talk to! He will make sure you are taken care of and I could not recommend this place any more. I will stay here again!

    February 2014
  • The location was perfect. If we walked out the back, we were literally a half block from S. Congress. It was quiet and comfortable, and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay near that area of town.

  • The reservation was canceled 8 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    December 2012
  • Matt is a great guy and has both a beautiful house and a perfect studio apartment (where I'm staying). He's been extremely flexible, even letting me park my motorcycle in his private parking area. Location is PERFECT! Congress St., which is jam packed with restaurants, bars and a cool music venue, is a block away and downtown, which is even livelier, is a 15 min. walk or a $5 cab ride away.

    December 2012
  • Perfect location for our Formula 1 visit! Matt's place is conveniently located to South Congress and 1st Street. This is where we spent most of our time. Also, for breakfast you can literally walk less than one minute to Magnolia Cafe. We hope to return next year.

    November 2012
  • Matt is a friendly and accommodating host. His condo is in an awesome location, private rear entrance from S. Congress, comfortable bed, very clean. Very Austin. Would definitely stay again.

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.
