A beautiful, comfortable, 2-bedroom garage apartment (with private access for guests) just a few steps away from everything South Congress has to offer (we highly recommend Torchy Taco's and Gourdough's donuts for eats and the Continental Club & its upstairs Gallery for live fun) and 20 minutes by foot from the river (Lady Bird Lake) and downtown. The owners clearly understand the vacation renter's needs -- the place is perfectly appointed (e.g., fully equipped kitchen, extra towels, clearly printed tips & instructions throughout) and includes many touches that most owners don't think of (the personalized door code made entry & exit a breeze, and the Google Fiber TV was particularly nice for a down evening after two late nights on the town). Communication with the owner was always quick, thorough, and gracious. For those who don't do well sharing bathroom space, take note that there is only one, but otherwise this is the perfect place for a group of four people who enjoy...

Management response:

Wow, how sweet! I am so thankful and appreciative that you wrote this AND took the time! :) What a kind thing to do! We would love you back, anytime! Thank you!

My wife and I were taking our two children (grown) to Austin to celebrate college graduation from A&M. We have all been to Austin many times and stayed downtown or out on one of the lakes, We are tired of hotels and have found these private rentals to be far more comfortable. This was our best stay in Austin ever. The South Congress area was a blast for us all to explore. We didn't have to worry about driving or parking as the house is about 11/2 blocks from the action. The house it's self is comfortable and very clean.

We'll be back.
