The space

An amazing location and South Austin cool are yours in this peaceful, zen South Congress cottage.

An updated 1BR with study/office that will easily accommodate a single or a couple, the house has been newly redesigned with a simple, modern sensibility and every comfort in mind, even including complementary Keurig coffees. And there is the large, private, park-like backyard with a freestanding deck that has lounge and dining areas, plus a hammock to lay back and smell the jasmine in the garden.

You could not ask for a more ideal location to experience Austin:

- The cottage is literally just steps away from 3 of Bon Appetit magazine's Top 50 New Restaurants (Sway, Elizabeth St. Cafe, and Lenoir), plus 10 of Austin's most popular food trailers, including the original Torchy's Tacos, Holy Cacao and Gourdough's Gourmet Donuts. Most are within just one block of the cottage, and all are a great way to immerse yourself in Austin's amazing food scene.

- South Congress, with classic Austin venues like the Continental Club, Jo's Coffee at the Hotel San Jose, Guero's, Home Slice Pizza, and the 24-hour Magnolia Cafe, is a short 5-minute stroll away.

- Downtown, Lady Bird Lake, and the Hike and Bike Trail, with everything they have to offer, are only one mile away, and easily accessible on foot, by bike, or using one of the two bus lines that run right by.

Check out the photos, and feel free to contact me with any questions or to book a reservation for this one-of-a-kind Austin accommodation.

Edward's home was perfect for us in every way. We were lucky to stay for a whole month as we searched for more permanent housing in Austin, and our situation at Edward's cozy home was ideal. The house has everything you need with a fantastic yard and perfect location. Getting to all the great restaurants and shops on 1st and South Congress is very easy, which was great for us because we love walking. And Edward is the perfect host---he was very quick to respond to every message and looks after the house really carefully. Cant recommend any higher!

The Zen Cottage was perfect! It is clean, safe and in a fun location!! Filled every need for a quick weekend trip and quickly felt like home. Easy walk to food, shopping, outdoor activities. Edward was easy to communicate with and made the check in process a breeze. I will definitely rent again in the future!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend getaway. The location is perfect for access to SOCO and walkable to many neighborhoods. The backyard is perfect for hanging out on the hammock and having some beers. Easy check in!
