Cozy home sweet home in the heart South Congress and all the Austin Charm.
A short stroll to music, food and shops. Down time can be spent with some records or playing a tune on the wurlitzer. The back yard is ready for hammock naps and a picnic!
Enjoy the 78704 area with your very own cozy little house. Have drinks with friends or relax in a hammock in the back yard before taking a walk to the plentiful South Austin food and drink offerings to be found in either direction. A short distance from Zilker park and less than a minutes walk to bus # 10, so you're minutes to downtown for a single dollar, 2 dollars and you get unlimited transfers for the next 24 hrs!
In the main bedroom you will have a lovely king bed! There is a Queen bed in the second bed room and a single bed can be put out in the sun room. An air mattress is available for larger groups.
Also I have a pack and play type crib for those traveling with children!
The living room can be host to your new record store purchases or lounging between activities. While you may want to sample all the coffee, tacos, and margaritas beyond the front yard, the kitchen is ready for some drink and snack making and is really a dream to those that enjoy cooking on vacation.
South 1st neighborhood has a lot of the locals favorite shops, food trucks and cafe's.
You are minutes from down town and the South Congress or popular SOCO area.
The area is accessible by walking, biking or public transit. There is also plenty of free parking and drive way if you have a car.
The bus is one block from the house and will take you to down town straight route. Easy!
We loved our stay at Baxter's place! The house was gorgeous and cozy, and just a quick walk to all the best restaurants, bars, and shops on South Congress. Baxter was very warm and welcoming ~ she made sure that we had maps and knew about fun events happening in town that weekend. Could not have asked for a better experience!
Baxter was incredibly accommodating of our unconventional travel schedule. The house was in great shape when we arrived and every bit as charming as the listing suggests. It was a great little retreat off of South Congress to have drinks, listen to music, and relax in her great big back yard. Baxter gave me some recommendations for restaurants that turned out to be great. I would recommend Baxter and her house to anyone looking for a great location in Austin as well as a tidy and comfortable place to stay. Absolutely great experience.
We had a fantastic stay in Baxter's home. We had a lot of complications with our incoming flights and Baxter was easy to get in touch with and very flexible about how to get us the key. Once we did arrive, the house was perfect! It's in a great location and was the perfect place to stay for a weekend exploring Austin. I would definitely stay here on another trip to Austin.
Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed staying at Baxter's place for the weekend! She is an incredibly friendly host who has done a great job turning the house into a fantastic little getaway. Music lovers will surely enjoy spinning some vinyl late at night or rocking the Wurly with friends. :)
Oh so good!!
Perfect cosy home for 4 of us.
Amazing location...a quick walk to the 24 hour magnolia cafe...bars, restaurants, live music all within walking distance.
SoCo is a great neighborhood that honors and respects local business.
We had a great escape and Baxter was super easy to communicate with and made the experience very easy.
The cottage was great for our needs and Baxter was very friendly and helpful throughout the process. She sent helpful emails in advance to orient us to both the apartment and neighborhood. Baxter was also easily available by text and accommodated us storing our luggage until our evening flights. The cottage was clean and as seen in the pictures with a fun Austin vibe and a great location. The only drawback was low water pressure in the shower and warm (not hot) water. Everything else was great though and I highly recommend!
This was the perfect spot for our first trip to Austin. We came as a group of four intent on exploring a large part of the city over the course of 5 days, and the house location made it easy to do! We opted for local buses (the 10 is a great option to get downtown quickly), walks up and down 1st street and Congress, and the occasional Lyft to get around. Baxter met us with tons of tips and even a kind bottle of welcome champagne. Well worth a stay! Thanks, Baxter.
