Cute House Off S. Congress, Central

House - Entire home/apt · Greenridge Terrace, Austin, TX 78745, United States

Welcome to Austin – we're a creative professional couple renting out our house for a month or longer at a time. It's a simple and cozy 2 bedroom in South Central Austin, 10 minutes from downtown and even less to SoCo and more.

The Space

Cute south central bungalow off S. Congress / 71 - 2br w/ backyard - simple and welcoming.

The house is 10 minutes from South Congress and South First districts, 15 minutes from downtown and east side (6th street, Red River, Rainey Street, East 6th, etc.) as well as 15 minutes from Barton Springs, South Lamar and West Sixth areas. It's about 20 min. from University of Texas and about 5 min. from St. Edwards University.

There's a bus stop 3 blocks away that goes to a transit hub and also directly downtown. Taxi from downtown is about $15. Airport is 15 minutes away.

Our neighborhood is quiet and our house is a bungalow with vaulted ceiling, bamboo floors – simple and calm with lots of art, plants, and books.

There's two bedrooms with a queen bed each, one bathroom, kitchen, and a backyard with deck and seating.

There's also a couple of good working areas around the house and we have reliable wireless as well as wired connection at desk.

There's a park a block away with a playground and basketball court.

Guest Access

You're welcome to the whole house with the exception of a few closets.

Interaction with Guests

I will help you get settled and show you around but otherwise I'll be out of your hair and not at the house – but available by phone, of course.

The Neighborhood

It's simple, honest, and quiet with lots of trees and everyone's chill.

Getting around

S. Congress is the nearest big street and it will take you directly downtown, cruising through awesome SoCo district on the way.

It's also easy to get to pretty much anywhere in the city because you have access to three highways within 5 minutes.

If you don't have a car there's a bus stop within 3 blocks and it goes through a transit center with lots of transfer options. The bus also goes directly downtown where there's yet many more transfer options (or bike rental, car2o, pedicab, regular cab, etc.)

The airport is about 15-20 minutes away.

  • We had exactly 24 hours in Austin, and we happened to be there en route to a wedding on the same weekend as ACL. Daniel was accommodating from the very beginning, as he let us book his house for just one night, even though I am sure he could have found someone to rent it for the entire weekend. Everything about our stay was perfect. Daniel and his wife met us at the house when we got there from the airport (only a 15 minute drive), showed us where everything was, gave us some restaurant recommendations and instructions for using the wifi, told us to text or call him if we had any questions, and left. The house is beautiful - super tastefully decorated, very comfortable, with a great yard - we kept saying we wished we could stay longer (and that we had such impeccable taste in decor...) The location was great - in the 24 hours we were there, we went to two museums near the University, explored South Congress and South 1st Street, went swimming at Barton Springs, checked out some great restaurants and live music - and it was all very easy to get to from Daniel's house. We were in a bit of a rush to leave in the morning, so I texted Daniel, and he told me where to leave the key, and we were off. This was our first airbnb experience, and I am already a total convert- never staying at a hotel again. I highly recommend staying at Daniel's house - it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. My only regret is that our time there was so short.

  • Daniel's place was perfect. His brother let us in. Thankfully, Daniel was always available during our stay because I locked myself out! He was also very accommodating to our last minute request to stay.

  • Stayed at this house for SXSW. It was very cute as advertised and my stay was quite comfortable. Nice back yard and deck for relaxing after long days walking around Austin.

  • Daniel was a great host. His home was neat, tidy, and very cute. I felt very comfortable staying here. It was a quiet oasis while working at SXSW.

    I had to use taxis while in Austin and his home was about a $15 cab ride to downtown. There was plenty of street parking if you've got a car.

    The backyard had a nice deck with a table and chairs. We used it a lot to sit out and relax.

    Their home was filled with lots of great art books and had a really peaceful vibe. We used the kitchen quite a bit and the nearest store was a quick drive away.
