Overview

About the property

One Bedroom Apartment with open floor plan 3 blocks to South Congress (SoCo)

Bouldin Creek Treehouse is an entirely furnished apartment located in Austin’s famous South Congress District (SoCo), available for short-term rental.

The Treehouse sits atop a new architecturally contemporary home that was designed with the idea of breaking down the barriers between indoor and outdoor spaces. This design element is evident throughout the house and the apartment.

The apartment, located on the second floor, has a private entrance, 9’ ceilings and two large 8’x8’ windows opening up the apartment to direct sunlight and a view of two 300-year-old live oak trees and Bouldin Creek.

The apartment comfortably sleeps four in its living area, with a queen-size bed and sleeper sofa, a full bathroom and furnished kitchen. Is accessed via a semi-private stairway with wood deck outside entrance.

South Austin, and the South Congress district in particular is the foundation of what makes Austin the cultural hub it has become in recent years. The Bouldin Creek Treehouse is just blocks away from downtown and in walking distance from the shops and restaurants on South Congress and South First streets. Additionally, the Treehouse is less than a mile from a grocery store, dry cleaner, gas station and has direct access to multiple freeways (I-35, HWY 71, HWY 290).

Great location! Beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little quiet place- perfect for two (maybe three)! Walking distance to South Congress, the river (1 mile), and downtown. Easy parking. Perfect for our mother/daughter get-away!

Great eats and activities: Gourdoughs (donuts-actually meals- got the Squealing Pig and Granny’s Pie- delicious! Moonshine for dinner- blackened catfish was fabulous! Visited the Umlaut sculpture garden, and the Escape Game (Goldrush). Don’t forget to grab a slice of pizza at Home Slice. Yum!

An lovely weekend in a clean, nicely decorated, house in the trees. Would definitely stay here again!

Peaceful Oasis in Bouldin

  • 5 of 5

I was in Austin on business for 6 days and stayed in this lovely apartment. It was just perfect. Clean, quiet, nestled in the trees along a little creek, with easy access to the highway. Good restaurants and healthy food options within walking distance. This is a place I look forward to visiting again!

Elegant Treetop Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse is wonderful! My wife and I, along with our two small children, spent a beautiful week in South Austin, and this apartment was a perfect launching ground for our adventures. The building is chic, modern, and had every comfort. The owners, Scott and Tim, were super friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better stay.

Lovely. Wonderful modern house situated on an amazing property.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, modern and appropriately furnished suite. The house is located within walking distance to great restaurants and activities, while the property makes you feel miles away from everything. Very peaceful.

South Austin, and South Congress Street in particular, is the creative backbone of Austin. Music, food, shopping; SoCo is everything that is great about Austin all right next to each other. Whether it's heart-stopping Texas BBQ at La Barbecue or authentic New York Pizza at Home Slice, there is something for everyone just minutes from the Treehouse.
