Why We Think Bouldin Is Best:
Bouldin is great! The neighborhood-y, 'South Austin Funky' vibe is unmatched. We love that you can walk to Zilker park for a day festival, or to take a dip in Barton Springs pretty much year 'round. We love that neighbors sit on their front porches and neighbors say "howdy" when you walk by. And we love being able to walk or bike to fantastic, hip new restaurants and vintage clothing stores on S. 1st Street and S. Congress Ave. There is always something going on and the people couldn't be friendlier. Bouldin is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Austin for its great oak trees, new library, parks, bars, airstream trailer food finds and proximity to SoCo, downtown and Zilker Park. We also like how close it is to Lamar, Mopac, and 71 for easy commuting around and out of town. Bouldin can't be beat for a vacation destination and it's super family-friendly. There are parks galore, including 2 splash pads that are walking distance and summer art classes for little ones at the Dougherty Art Center. Plus, almost every bar/restaurant within a mile is family-friendly.
You can catch a bus at the CapMetro bus stop 1 1/2 blocks east for an inexpensive and easy way to access downtown. You can also pretty much walk or bike to anything cool you want to do in the 'hood in less than 15 minutes.

I put up four artists in the house during a music festival I host in Austin. The artists loved their stay and were very comfortable. The house is impeccably clean and the beds / bedding are super comfortable. The artists had 0 complaints and only nice things to say about their stay in the house. Kat and I had a difficult time meeting up in person (so I could take a look at the place in person before renting) because of our schedules - but once we did meet, she addressed all of my concerns clearly, professionally and friendly. Overall, this was a good experience.
We really enjoyed Kat's place. It was clean, thoughtfully decorated and very comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the neighborhood. It was quiet, yet walkable to the most wonderful eateries. We highly recommend this place for your next trip to Austin.
I want to especially thank Kat for her prompt responses and attention to detail. She was a delight to work with.
This home was the perfect match for three colleagues working in town for a month. Kat was a great host, very easy to work with. The home and neighborhood are charming, great location.
Terrific South Austin spot. Beautifully done interiors and comfortable. Great service and follow up. Pricey but worth it.
The house was absolutely charming and the perfect South Austin vibe. We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. Kat was very responsive and attentive. We greatly enjoyed our stay. The pictures are very accurate. Would definitely recommend.
We where six lads traveling from Norway and UK.
The location of the house was excellent, in a quiet neighborhood close to everything. 10 minutes walk from good restaurants, bars and everything you need. 25-30 mins walk down to downtown Austin, or a 10$ taxi ride.
The house was clean, spacey and everything was just as promised in the advert.
When we come back to Austin we would love to stay here again, so all six of us would highly recommend the bungalow to anyone visiting (website hidden); this must be a fantastic location if you travel with family and kids.
From start to finish Kat was very helpful. She answered all of my questions promptly and included a comprehensive list of places to visit in the area. The rental was accurately depicted in the listing. The house is SO charming and in a great neighborhood. We could walk to coffee, shopping, and meals. We loved spending time talking on the back patio and listening to the train go by.
