The Space

Located on the famous South Congress, this luxury condo is just a 20 minute walk from Zilker park (home of the ACL Festival). There is a bus stop across the street with an express line downtown (but you're already within 2 miles of downtown with nothing on your path but SOCO shops and restaurants- I recommend walking).

Here are some of the notable attractions in the 78704 area:

* Entertainment: Continental Club, Alamo Drafthouse, The Broken Spoke, Saxon Pub, Flipnotics, 6th St., Rainey St.

*Food: S. Congress Cafe, Hopdoddy Burger, Uchi, Olivia, Barley Swine, Chuy's, Shady Grove, Uncle Billy's, Wahoo's Fish Taco, Food trailers on S. Congress and S. 1st

*Drinks: San Jose Hotel, Black Sheep Lodge, Gibson Bar, Opa, The Horseshoe, Highball Lounge, Crow Bar, Freddie's

* Outdoors: Lady Bird Lake, Zilker Park & Barton Springs Pool, Barton Creek Greenbelt

Guest Access

The guest will have access to the full condo and balcony. They will also have a key to the pool, exercise room and laundry room.

Interaction with Guests

I will let the guest in and I'll usually be in town and available for any on-site issues (though there have never been any-I've only ever had to hand the keys off).

The Neighborhood

Dozens of options for brunch, tons of shopping, coffee, and gourmet food within walking distance, and a a few blocks from S. 1st and S. Lamar.

Getting around

There are a few very convenient bus lines that stop one block a way on S. congress. There are three lines which pick up every 10-15min which will take you downtown.

  • We had a great stay at Jeremy's place! Great location. Great a/c (75 was cool that first week of July :)) The parking spot was a big plus too! Thanks Jeremy. My first airbnb experience and it worked out great.

  • We had a really great first airbnb experience. Jeremy was readily available and quick to respond to our questions. The condo was clean and very nice. It was such a great location and safe. It's within walking distance to tons of great restaurants shops. We had a great time in Austin!

  • This was our first airbnb experience and it was great! Jeremy's apartment is in the perfect location for anyone who wants to get to know Austin. We were able to walk many places and there are easy bike rentals around if you're into that too. Loved the apartment - clean, decent size for the two of us, and it has a nice little kitchen if you want to use the fridge or microwave.

    Jeremy was super quick to respond to any questions I had during the entire process. He was able to get us in earlier than the listed check-in time which was ideal for our schedule that day. I would definitely recommend staying at his place!

  • This was the perfect place to stay for my recent visit to Austin. The location couldn't be better--in walking distance of all the restaurants, bars, and stores that SoCo has to offer (we even walked to downtown!). The apartment was very clean and nice, and was the perfect size for two people for a few days. I would definitely recommend it!

  • Jeremy's place was perfectly situated for our weekend trip to Austin. Close to all the shops and night life of South Congress. The apartment was clean and the air conditioning blew nice and cool. Great launch pad for an Austin excursion.

    Response from Jeremy:

    Thanks for the feedback, Carrie, and for the good review! I'll make those changes! (sorry, I have a lot of linens circulating- should definitely cycle out some of the old ones).

  • Excellent location, clean place, and good space for 2 people. Jeremy was very responsive in his communication and helpful with any questions. Overall very positive experience and will definitely recommend this place.

  • Really clean, was exactly as shown in photographs. Jeremy was very helpful and only a phone call away. Location is great, better than expected next to a really fun area of shops and restaurants and a short walk over the bridge to 6th street.

  • Great condo in cool area - a few blocks from the hustle of South Congress. Right by a bus stop so easy to get around if you don't have a car/want to walk.

  • I felt like I got really lucky staying at Jeremy's place -- it was perfect. Right on South Congress Avenue, within walking distance of all the best places and the place was very nice.

    Jeremy made everything very accommodating and easy to access. Top of the line place & host.
