Perfect Spot Close to Downtown
I absolutely loved this place. The location was awesome and it was the perfect size for a weekend.

Sooooo perfect!!!
My boyfriend and I just want to get away for a bit and found this place on a whim and we were more than pleased! The location is perfect walking distance to all of the REAL nooks and crannies! The place was squeaky clean and the neighborhood was very safe. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to relax and also be able to go out at anytime for some great food and drinks! Thank you turn key!!

Perfect Hideaway!
We loved our stay in the Sidecar! Gorgeous space with the perfect amount of room for two. Walking distance to everything great in SOCO and a short hop in the car to hit the MOPAC or I35. We only wished we could have stayed longer! When you stay here make sure to take a walk down S 1st St. with all of the food trucks and cool shops. Also, walk around the surrounding neighborhood and soak up what truly makes Austin what it is...eclectic and funky! Two small warnings, it's great to be able to pull your vehicle into fenced parking for the night, however if you have an SUV or large car it can be a slight challenge to get in the gate. But once in, your vehicle is secure and right next to the cottage. Makes loading and unloading a breeze!! Also there is a gorgeous little sitting area alongside the cottage, perfect for coffee in the morning or drinks in the evening however the Mosquitos are seemingly training to become dive bombers in their own little war! Bring bug spray! Overall we loved the Sidecar and will stay there again! Turnkey (they manage the renting) were amazing to work with and always available for requests. Can't recommend enough

Comfy cottage!
My wife and I decided on this unit because it was close to everything we wanted to do during our mini-moon. Her only complaint was that she wished the bed was a king size because I moved around way too much and we had to sleep on the edge to keep from waking each other. Also we found out at the end of our stay that the easiest way to pull into the gate was by coming up the long side of the alley. The neighborhood was quiet and beautiful. The cottage was clean and there are basic cooking supplies in the kitchen. We wish we could've stayed longer! The next time we visit Austin, we will definitely book this cottage again (even with the queen size bed lol)!

Great location
This cottage is in a great location, set away from the road, yet within walking distance of all the trendy stores on South Congress and South 1st. Ideal for just one or two nights stay or like me, the whole week. I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

great place, poor housekeeping
We loved a lot about this space. Location, size, décor & amenities were just what the photos depicted. We traveled all over the city, visiting friends & eating at our favorites restaurants, even ventured into the hill country for cool vintage finds to use in our art. After a long day it was great to come back to this special spot, which is easily accessible from every direction. Great food is within in walking - El Chile, Bouldin Cafe & yummy gelato at Dolce Neve. Enjoyed my a.m. coffee in the side yard as the sun arose. The washer/dryer was a plus since we were traveling for 2 weeks. The only issue was finding a pair of dirty underwear in between the sheets! We found another set of sheets in the closet, but that pair was not clean either! I will spare you the dirty details. I sent TurnKey photos & they quickly responded they would bring new sheets first thing in a.m. It was late, so we made do with blankets on hand. At 10am we called & they said not to wait they’d handle it. We left the dirty linens on the floor so they could see the stains. We returned at 6pm to an unopened pkg of new sheets on the bed, dirty linens still on the floor. Outraged, I called again, they seemed very upset we had returned to this. I threw the dirty linens in a pillowcase, placed them outside & began washing the new sheets to use them that night. Not our plans for the evening. A mgr called the next day offering to remove the cleaning fee. I probably should’ve had them reduce the bill but all else was fine & it's minor in the huge scope of life & I didn't want it to ruin my vacation. Extra towels in the closet were damp & moldy smelling so I washed them on a sanitary cycle, thank goodness for the W/D! There’s also mold in the wall along the shower, from a leak inside the wall where there’s even more mold. TurnKey reassured me they’ll correct the issues. I sure hope they do, because it's a great little spot and I'm sure the owners wouldn't appreciate their property being mismanaged.

Great back house!!
This was a wonderful property. It is very convenient to some of our favorite places located downtown. It's perfect for 2 people. The only trouble we had was not having the other lock information but the company helped us out and it was no problem.

Johana studio
My friend and I enjoyed how close it was to the shops and restaurants on 1st and Congress. The air conditioner was efficient and didn't take long to cool down the studio. Overall it was a nice stay. The gate getting into it was tricky and difficult to open and close at times, especially in the rain at night. (: As we were leaving we realized we'd finally got the hang of it; so perhaps the lesson is that we should've stayed there for a few more days on vacation.

Comfortable accommodation in great location
Great location (nestled on an alley between Bouldin Castle and Robert Plant's new Austin home) in easy walking distance to everything South Congress and 1st Street have to offer. Many good restaurants within a few blocks. The house is spacious, well equipped, nicely decorated, and was spotlessly clean. The bed is comfortable. Plenty of closet and drawer space. Very helpful property management. I would definitely stay here again

Johanna Street 712B
My wife and I stay five nights in the house 712B, Austin. It's a clean and comfortable house. There are micro waves, washer, dryer, and refrigerator. We enjoy our stay very much. The two restaurants nearby at the corner at Elizabeth street and 1st are very good. Don't miss them when stay at the 712B.

Perfect Little Mini House!
This property is perfect & SO cute! I was expecting it to be tiny but it wasn't! There was plenty of room to move around for 2 people. I'd never stayed in a vacation rental & this makes me NEVER want to stay in a hotel again! We loved being able to cook while we were there so we didn't have to eat out every day/night. Others have mentioned the gate/lock being a little difficult to use but after a couple of times it was a breeze! The neighborhood was VERY quiet! The unit was in a great proximity to popular Austin attractions! The washer & dryer are compact size so you have to wash smaller loads, but having them there was very convenient! Turnkey was very professional & thorough in there communication with me! They even called to ensure I was able to enter the unit & to find out if I needed anything! I would definitely rent this unit again

Great little cottage in Austin
We needed a place to stay for a convention. This was a great spot and very comfortable. A little hard to find at first (spent about 25 mins trying to find the access). The people at Turnkey were super helpful and we finally figured it out. Hopefully the description has been updated.

Charming Studio Suite
I enjoyed my stay at the S. Austin Cottage while I was in town. I liked that it was so close to the action on hS. Congress and Lamar, but was in a quiet neighborhood that felt more like a retreat in the woods. Be prepared on initially arriving it was tucked back in an alley way so give yourself some extra time. But once you find it, it's not a problem!

'A' Location - very difficult parking, gate and door lock
Location is terrific. Interior finish is very good for short term stay; very clean and well maintained. The entry gate in the alley is very difficult to find the first time and could necessitate calls and assistance. The alley gate is extremely difficult and needs to have working lights. The padlock is very fickle and will require many, many tries before access is gained. The alley gate also is heavy and does require some muscle to operate. The parking spot is extremely tiny. If you rent a full size car, you will NOT be able to access through the alley nor gain access to the parking spot; meaning you will need to park out on the main street (if you can find a spot) and carry your luggage down the alley. Once access through the alley gate is gained, the front door lock just never works. We had to place calls, put on hold, stand outside in driving rain. The alley gate and front door were problems during our entire stay. Now.....all of that being said, great spot, well maintained. Hopefully the landlord can figure out the alley gate and front door...if they did, this place would be perfect. Also, the rental detail should give warning about the inability to access with anything other than a sub-compact car.

Loved the house, perfect getaway for my wife and I. Great location for walkin to shops and restaurants in the area. Everything was provided that we needed.

Only thing I would change is the AC unit was noisy, but probably because the heater hadn't been used often.

Will definitely stay again!!!

Stay here! Trust me
My boyfriend and I wanted a quiet spot to relax and get away after two very hard Mardi Gras weeks in New Orleans. We fell in love as soon as we walked in. It was very clean, modern, well decorated and homey. Kitchen was well stocked, shower pressure was incredible, they supplied us with little soaps and shampoos and an assortment of tea and coffee that can satisfy any taste. We really enjoyed eating our breakfast outside by the grill. Other than that, the location was perfect. We brought our bikes and were able to get to shopping on South Congress, downtown, awesome food and drinks on Rainey st. and Zilker park. And it was an easy drive everywhere else. You definitely want to stay here!

Perfect little tucked away spot
My husband & I spent a long weekend at this cute little casita. It had everything we needed and was very well located for walking to SoCo or S Lamar restaurants. The unit was nicely decorated and maintained, with a place to park a single vehicle out front (under a tree - be prepared, it may need a bath afterwards??). We had absolutely no issues with our stay & would not hesitate to rent this spot again thE next time we head to Austin.

Spotless, cute vacation rental
The cottage is great, very clean, modern and ready. Check in and out was easy. I agree with all the other positive comments, so don't want the next suggestions to take away from any of that. If I had to find ways to improve it even further, I'd suggest two things. The wooden gates- have an easy and secure way to keep them open- anchor points in the ground rather than hoping for good luck in the grass. Granted, I arrived on what became a windy and stormy night, yet the gate blew in the strong wind as I was navigating the turn, and dinged the car paint :( After that I parked on the road. Secondly, in a wood frame cottage in the heat, the AC will need to be on- it's very high up, a wall unit, and it is either on or off, it doesn't ever go quiet by cycling on and off, the fan is constant. A Split System AC unit would be a perfect solution, and eliminate the constant noise and the need to stand on a step stool to control it. The owners are clearly a gem- they left a small gift to apologize for the building work next door- love it!

Enjoyed the cottage very much. Very clean and comfortable! Great location. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance. Turnkey staff very helpful! If you are sensitive to a continual noise the air conditioner unit can be irritating. We rented a Ford Fusion which was tight fit for the gated area but street parking convenient or rent smaller car.

Austin gated back yard back alley nest
Property is very unique in location. Entering from 3rd street down narrow allow you pass castle on left and ultra modern corner home on right. This backyard gated location is Austin quant and Austin weird. The two piece gate can be a pain to open and close as you come and go. I found backing car into gravel drive best. The pea gravel parking area is only large enough for one car. Rocks from parking area stick to shoes and feet and are tracked into unit every time. Once inside unit I found it to be perfect for my 6 day stay. I cookout on electric grill one night. Cooked using microwave, oven and cooktop surface. Daily laundry with washer and dryer. Full sized refrigerator. I was unable to start dishwasher. Big negative was construction next door of two story house with garage. Austin growth leads to air compressors banging at 9:00 am. It's like a great alarm clock. Work should be done in 30-60 days.

Perfect Birthday Weekend!
What a wonderful weekend we had in this adorable cottage! Perfect location to walk to anything you want. Also a short drive to many other fun restaurants and activities. Cottage was so cozy (in a good way) clean, bright and charming. Perfect for a romantic stay with someone you Love! The bed was so comfortable with wonderful sheets and quilt. The only missing in this property is a nice out door space to sit and have a glass of wine or cup of coffee. It appeared to us they are working on a new fence and security parking gate so our car was not behind a locked gate which some reviews said. It was fine for us (2 women) we felt the neighborhood was very quiet and safe. I would suggest taking your own bikes or renting while you stay you could bike everywhere. We renting just for a few hours and had wished we had them the whole weekend. Maybe the owners could provide 2 bikes for their renters for a fee, it would be so cool to have them there at the property! Thanks again for an AWESOME weekend, we will return.

Great location & Outstanding Accommodation
This property is in a great location and is way better than staying in an apartment or hotel. You can park right outside the front door and have plenty of privacy. The place is simple, well decorated, and has all the necessities--including a well stocked Keurig. What I especially enjoyed is the size. The cottage is big enough that we weren't cramped but not excessively big, which made the price point perfect.

Park your car and grab your walking shoes!
This was a great place to stay! Parking right next to the door. Extremely walkable to a local library, great restaurants and coffee shops. Bouldin Creek Cafe sells coffee by the bag and they grind it according to your coffee maker. This rental has a French press, a big and a small drip coffee maker AND a Keurig! I used the French press. Well worth it :) Nestled between S. Lamar and 1st St you have so many options for entertainment or just hanging out in the side yard barbecuing. I would definitely recommend this gem!

The location could not have been more perfect. The parking was off the street and felt very safe. We were minutes away from all of the locations we wanted to visit and the property was spotless and serenely quiet. My girlfriend and I got engaged on this Austin excusrsion, and we'll remember this little cottage for the rest of our lives. It was perfect and we loved it, and would jump at the chance to book it again for our next visit.

A nice stay with a few issues
This was a nice place to spend a long weekend. Thoughtfully stocked, well-designed to maximize space, cute decor, and clean. The private parking was a huge plus. That said, we had a few gripes: The rental confirmation process through Turnkey was frustrating. The tub drained slowly and the smoke detector ran out of batteries and started beeping in the middle of the night (twice!). Though Turnkey's customer service was pleasant and responsive, they weren't able to resolve either issue in the time we were there. Finally, the bedframe was extremely squeaky, waking us up every time we turned over. If these issues were resolved, we'd be happy to return next time we're in Austin!

Cute cottage, great location!
Home was very clean and just as described. The location is great and the home is perfect for 1-2 people. I would definitely stay there again!
