About this listing
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 the go to SOCO and S 1st finds, down town and Zilker park.
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.
There is parking provided and if traveling with out a car, you're less than a block 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!
Full House, kitchen fixings, record player, piano, television and bicycles!
You are minutes from down town and a block from South Congress or popular SOCO area. Lots of live music on any given night to walk to, amongst record stores, vintage boutiques and thrift shops and plenty of patio margarita happy hours in either direction.
South 1st neighborhood has a lot of the locals favorite shops, food trucks and cafe's and runs parallel to South Congress.
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!
Other Things to Note
I'm a moments notice away for any recommendations and helpful hints but otherwise you are free to enjoy the life of a local on your own.
Thank you Baxter for a wonderful stay! I highly recommend staying at this lovely place. It is located in a quiet, centrally located neighborhood. The decor and details of the place are perfect! Everything was very clean and we felt at home. The record collection and piano were big hits! Baxter was incredibly thoughtful, welcoming, and gives amazing recommendations for where to go/eat/drink in Austin. Can't wait to come back!
Loved the house... comfortable beds, nice layout, well-equipped kitchen, and a turntable with great record selection. Loved the neighborhood... a quiet, lovely street, but just a block from South Congress and all the food, music, and shopping you could dream of. And Baxter was friendly and accommodating (she met us at the house even though we got in an hour late, and she put out a third bed based on what I had told her about our group, even though I forgot to ask for it!)
Our stay in Austin was amazing and Baxter's place had everything to do with it! The location is perfect. It's just steps away from all of the restaurants, bars and shops on South Congress and it's less than a 10 minute drive from all the bars in Downtown.
The place itself is so fun and you can really tell that each piece has its own story - it made the place that much more interesting. Baxter was an amazing host and I'm so happy we got to meet her and pup Mushroom!
Baxter's house was beautiful, quirky and so close to South Congress. We LOVED it! Reminded me of the time when I had a sweet little house on Elizabeth St. Such a fun area of town, and such a great place to spend your vacay!
The house was fantastic and well beyond anything I had hoped for! Though pretty tiny for a house, the layout made it feel huge, especially for only 2 people. Eclectic antiques were ever where but it was cozy and comfortable instead of feeling like a museum. Both beds were very comfortable and the sheets were super soft. I wish we had more time to spend in the house... or that I could just live there!
Baxter was wonderful about communication and flexibility. We never met but she was only a text away. She, the house that we didn't want to leave and the killer location on South Congress are what made our mini vacation. I strongly suggest checking out the shops in the area and wandering wherever looks interesting, because it is bound to be even cooler than you imagine. I absolutely recommend staying here and hope to do so again soon!
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.
