The space

Hi nice Airbnb folks!

We love our small South Congress Treehouse (550 sq ft), but if you need more space, check out our other listing for "The Coach House Austin on SOCO", which can accommodate up to 8 folks comfortably. The two together form what we have lovingly referred to as the compound for almost 15 years and we have had nothing but lovely experiences with folks coming to perch in our kooky and relaxed neck of the woods.

The treehouse is on South Congress, but tucked in a quiet garden oasis.

Remember. South Austin's unofficial motto is 'we are all here, cause we're not all there'…

The treehouse is a two story guesthouse just off South Congress behind iconic Magnolia Cafe. A five minute walk to shops, a few minutes more to the Hotel San Jose for drinks or the Continental Club for honkytonking or Wednesday night funk, and about a 15 minute run to Town Lake Trail.

There's a BBQ in the backyard and an upstairs balcony that is miraculously shady in summer and sunny in winter. Plus a sweet kitchen for cooking and a built-in desk area for working if you have to.

Upstairs you will find a comfy double bed and a queen-size loft bed! If you are happy to squeeze there is also an additional full size fold out couch in the living room downstairs.

The treehouse is as open plan as a small studio can be, so in terms of privacy, think expanded tiny house more than miniature mansion ... Upstairs, the beds and bathroom are all packed into a small space, sweet configuration from our standpoint, but we are also assuming you are traveling with folks you know and love well :)

There are two outdoor spaces that make the treehouse feel bigger than it actually is, a private terrace with space to seat 4 comfortably for supper and the above mentioned private deck.

You have your own private washer and dryer and storage space for bikes and parking for cars, wifi, internet streaming and local channels tv, and big time good mojo for a sweet stay in ATX.

There is a big golden doodle on the compound. Make of that what you will. He has become well accustomed to folks perching in the treehouse and will either steer completely clear and/or become your best friend depending on the mood you are in while on holiday!

We would be happy to give you recommendations to local haunts, suggestions for undiscovered gems, and introductions to sweet neighbors from whom you can borrow a cup of sugar if you need.

We are kind of airbnb evangelists.... we have had such a sweet time hosting. We look forward to having you experience ATX as our guests soon!

Guest access


Interaction with guests

as little or as much as they want. we always respond to requests asap and are often traveling so it really is hard to say if we even cross paths with folks. when we do we've had wonderful experiences meeting new folks who've stayed with us through airbnb.

Other things to note

For anyone with a cable addiction, heads up that we are in recovery and while we have a large HD internet streaming tv (Roku) with netflix and hulu and all the local channels, we no longer are feeding the cable beast, so you'd have to watch the big game at a great bar around the corner instead of in our living room ;). Also, while we love to host your four-legged family members, there is a $50 charge for pets fyi.

Love Tracy's place! First of all, great location. Easy walk to everything I needed to do for biz or pleasure. Adorable place, nice to have the kitchen, also nice to have the upstairs outdoor balcony. Tracy was a super host - made sure everything was great and checked in after my first night. I'll be back FOR SURE. Wonderful stay. Thanks!!

Literally steps away from the shops, restaurants and entertainment of SoCo (Austin's revitalized South Congress strip), this place is great! We had everything we needed - and loved the layout with the private balcony off of the upstairs bedroom. Excellent value - and Tracy made everything easy - checking in & out, getting additional information was all a breeze.

Wonderful, secluded abode in a shared scenic backyard right behind Magnolia cafe in SoCo. Loved the private space and the separate entrance for guests! Tracy is really friendly and so gracious. Highly recommended experience!

Tracy’s treehouse is adorable and she is a gracious, thoughtful host. The place is comfortable, quiet, and very clean / well-arranged. I stayed by myself and found the space to be plenty of room. Also, the shower has great water pressure! It is very well-located just off South Congress, near plenty of exciting restaurants and shops. Tracy is incredibly friendly, helpful, and thoughtful. Great stay; highly recommend.
