The Space

All furnishings were purchased recently from great stores like West Elm, Crate Barrel, Pottery Barn and Wildflower Organics. All linens are soft and new.

Two full baths both sport tub and shower options and there is a collection of books, hight-speed Internet and Roku televsion for your enjoyment during your stay. In addition, Bungalow is located less than a mile from everything that makes Austin great!

The Neighborhood

Why 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 to 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.

Getting around

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.

  • Very nice space! We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to book again for our next Austin trip. The home was so much better a hotel. Sure a hotel is a little cheaper but this home was welcoming, clean, and unlike a hotel, you could cook, sit in the living area and chat, and enjoy the sunlit patio with your morning coffee. There is also a washer and dryer which was nice. Perfect getaway! Book it!

  • Kat was very responsive to all of our queries. The Bungalow's location can't be beat, so close to all the eateries of 1st street and South Congress. The house is meticulous.

  • Cute place in an amazing neighborhood and great location in the city. It's a place I can see going back to over and over and everyone in our party feels the same way.
    Communication with Kat was clear, timely and positive.
    All around great experience.

  • This was a wonderful house with a great location! We were close to South Congress as well as the parks! We ran from the house down to lady bird trail with our children and it was wonderful! Quiet and the back deck made for wonderful evenings!

  • The house is so cute and perfect. I would live there permanently if I had my way. A group of friends and I stayed in the home to celebrate the last few days of my friend's single status before she becomes as Mrs. It was perfect. Thanks Kat!!!!

  • We stayed at Katherine's home (2.5 full bedrooms and 2 bathrooms) during SXSW 2012. It was perfect. Walking distance to SoCo as well as Austin Convention Center. Perfect spot to see all things Austin without being in the midst of the madness. Katherine's made Austin a second home.

    March 2012
  • Cute house in great location. Perfect for a family with young kids -- there was a crib and a single bed available, in addition to lots of great toys and kid books. Katherine was very responsive to our needs.
