The Space

Modern designed little guest apartment 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. 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.

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 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 South Congress is just a short distance away 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.

There are lots of ways to get around Downtown. So whether you're coming from or going to the airport, or enjoying a night on the town, kick back and enjoy the ride!

Capital Metro operates numerous bus routes from all parts of town providing service to Downtown. Most individual rides are 50 cents (bus drivers cannot make change). You can buy a $1 day pass that's good for 24-hours, a $5 card that's good for 20 rides (half price) and $10 passes that permit unlimited ridership within a calendar month.

You can purchase half-price fare cards, and pick up free bus schedules and route maps at the Capital Metro Transit Store, located at 323 Congress Avenue, and at most major supermarkets.

Check In
  • How can a place be so sophisticated and so adorable at the same time? Joe and Bella have done a wonderful job of appointing this great little bungalow. This is my kind of AirBNB stay: lots of detailed information ahead of time, and very low maintenance check in and out. The bungalow I stayed in was super quiet and the bed very comfortable. Thanks!

  • Amazing price for this area! This space was perfect for our needs. The bed was comfortable and the kitchenette and full-size bathroom were very accommodating. This little bungalow is smack dab in the middle of (in my opinion) the most fun part of Austin. Thanks Joe and Bella! We look forward to staying here again!

  • Had an excellent stay in this comfy abode! Very close to bus line and more spacious than even the pictures suggest. The welcome packet Joe and Bella included was very thoughtful and helpful in getting settled in. I would definitely recommend this spot to people looking to stay in Austin.

  • The bungalow was perfect! My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay. It was very clean, with a nice decor and great location. You were in walking distance of local restaurants and public transit. We were not disturbed at all and it was a quiet place in a nice neighborhood. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Austin in the future. Thanks!

  • Great little place! It was very clean and comfortable and quiet - Just what we we're looking for as a nice little get away from the hectic pace of New York City. We didn't even bother renting a car and were able to get around Austin by bus, bicycle, and on foot. Would easily stay here again and highly recommend it, especially for those who want easy accessibility to the SoCo area and all that it has to offer. Thanks so much to Joe & Bella!

  • Such a cozy, great apartment! It was very clean, modern and furnished with exactly what we needed. We didn't end up using the kitchenette because we wanted to try all the local restaurants and food trucks, but it was stocked well. Checking in and out was super easy as well.

    We really loved the neighborhood because it's so walkable! There were lots of bars and shops within walking distance and it's proximity to SOCO and downtown was perfect.

  • Great little bungalow just as advertised and thoughtfully and tastefully appointed. Really convenient location close to everything.

    Joe and Bella had everything really well organized with clear instructions so settling in couldn't have been easier.

    Thoroughly recommended to anyone who is looking to visit Austin and needs a simple comfortable base close to the action!
