SoCo Bungalow Minutes to Downtown

Apartment - Entire home/apt · South Congress Avenue, Austin, TX 78704, United States

The Space

This is one of my newest modern designed guest bungalow which will accommodate 1-2 people and is perfect for the traveler who prefers to spend their money enjoying Austin and not on their sleeping accommodations. Great Value!

The bungalow is located just off Congress Avenue about 2 miles to downtown in the most trendy desired zip code of Austin "78704" (please see map), and public transportation for Congress Avenue (SOCO DISTRICT) is just two blocks away. You can view the range of distance to some of Austin's landmark's and point's of interest at the bottom of this page. If you enjoy biking up and down the SoCo strip, Mellow Johnny's bike shop downtown has commuter bike rentals at reasonable rates.

The heart of SoCo, just a short distance down Congress Avenue and is loaded with boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, banks, entertainment, etc.

In addition, the famous 6th street, barton springs pool, famous bat bridge and the lady bird lake (with huge hike and bike trail) are also a short distance from the Bungalow.

The very popular Crow Bar is within walking distance and has a great outdoor patio and inside seating so you may enjoy a nice cool drink and/or play a game of pool.

You can enjoy all the excitement and entertainment that South Congress has to offer and on a budget. This little jewel is very clean, affordable.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The SoCo Bungalow was super cute and cozy. The pictures Joe & Bella have posted are a true representation of the space. The bungalow is within walking distance of all the fun bars and restaurants on South Congress which made it great for stumbling home late at night. The bed was comfortable as were all the pillows that accompanied it. While I did not use the kitchenette it was super cute and I found it would great for one to two people if they wanted to prepare a meal. The bathroom was clean, the towels were soft and felt just like the ones you'll find in a fancy hotel.

    I highly recommend staying at Joe & Bella's bungalow, you won't be disappointed!

  • Oh my goodness what a perfect little spot! My boyfriend and I came to Austin for a long weekend, and the Bungalow was the perfect home base for our trip. The bed was so cozy comfy, and the place was very clean, and the private entry made it feel like our very own spot. Joe and Bella pay attention to detail, and gave us suggestions & info before we even arrived. We'll definitely be back again! :)

  • The SoCo Bungalow is perfect! Newly renovated bath, perfect kitchenette, most comfortable bed with luxury linens that smell amazing! Slept like a baby!

  • This was my first time using Airbnb and it was WONDERFUL! We truly had a better experience than we have with hotels! The bungalow was so quaint and perfect, it had everything we needed and more! I must compliment the fun decor and cute neighborhood! Oh and the bed!!! It was comfy and soft! As the for the room goes, it obviously had a great insulation, because we never heard a peep (people or cars)!!!! I highly recommend staying at this property if you are in Austin.

  • This was our first Airbnb experience and it was perfect. The place was clean, smelled great, and was exactly as pictured (I think they may even use a professional cleaning service, it was that clean).
    We could have easily been comfortable staying for a week or longer in the space. It's extremely well laid-out with nice touches (mounted flat screen, deluxe Kohler shower head) that don't make you miss staying at a hotel.
    The location was close to the hub of South Congress so we never felt removed from the action, but the block was very clean and quiet. Highly recommended.

  • I had a brilliant stay here for SXSW. The busses were super convenient in the mornings to head down town. The room was clean and cosy. This was my first Airbnb experience so I had some trepidations but I can honestly say I will looking at booking with Joe and Bella for next year.

  • We had a great time at the bungalow. Perfect for a couple on a weekend getaway. It drops 60 degrees while we were in Austin for the in wall heater came in handy, didn't need the ac. Super comfortable bed. Host is very responsive and helped us deal with some AirBnB payment issues. THANK YOU!

  • Host was very attentive the bungalo was as discribed. Neat and clean, very close to St. Edwards University and an easy walk to the SOCO district. Definitely plan on visiting again.

  • Joe and Bella's bungalow was definitely one of the best airbnb experiences we've had. Great location,perfect size for two and thorough easy to understand descriptions/(email hidden)e space is great for guests with or without a car. We would highly recommend to other airbnb folks!

    February 2014
  • The bungalow was really comfortable and well-located. I came into town for an interview at a nearby university and appreciated the proximity to SoCo when I had downtime as well as the quiet and proximity to the highway for the interview components of my trip. I would definitely stay here again if I find myself in Austin.
