The space

OnCongress is the ultimate downtown Condominium in Austin. If you are looking for the most uniquely designed and decorated high-end rental in Austin, you have found it. This massive 3,000 sq. ft loft-style property was built and decorated by a former gallery owner and is recognized as one of the best in the city. It is right on Congress Avenue between 7th and 8th Streets. Its enormous balcony looks upon the Paramount Theater. The location is unlike any in Austin - as central as it gets.

OnCongress resides at 706 Congress Avenue - a building purchased by the owners several years ago and restored to its original façade. Along with the whole building restoration, the owners decided to carve out a unit to create a luxury condominium that would be among the most stylish units of any city. Every piece of OnCongress was purpose-built from the reclaimed wood floors throughout, the open staircases, poured concrete counter-tops, the unique split-level layout, high-end artwork, and custom furniture.

The front of the unit is a large great-room that combines the custom kitchen, dining area and living room into one large, high-ceiling industrial-modern oasis. Right off the living room guests can walk onto the over-sized balcony with a view up and down Congress Avenue. There are few restaurants or bars in town with such a great place to soak in all that Downtown Austin has to offer.

In the back of the unit the condo splits into a massive lofted bedroom above, and a huge game room below. The Master features a King Size bed and full bathroom, large sitting area with convertible sleeper and open views to the other floors. A large curtain can be drawn for privacy. For additional sleeping, the lower level game room features a Queen size murphy bed and a couch that converts into either two twin sleepers or an additional King size bed. Additionally, the upper level living room has a custom convertible sofa that folds into a double sleeper.

The game room features a custom steel girder pool table and full-sized shuffleboard table! There is a large flat-screen TV along with entertainment system and a professional desk in case you need to get some work done. There is also another full bathroom and a sofa-couch that can sleep two more people.

The amenities are just too long to list - free Wifi, full kitchen, two entertainment centers with flat-screen HDTVs, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Walking distance to everything downtown, right next to AMOA - the Austin Art House - across the street from the Paramount, around the corner from a Gold's Gym and Athenia - one of the best Greek restaurants downtown, everything Downtown is at your doorstep.

OnCongress also is the perfect place to host your event. Whether it be an intimate dinner party, business meeting, or festival gathering, this space has everything you need to host your group. 30+ days only. Contact us for Event Rates.

Stayed here with 7 people while going to a University of Texas football game. This loft was in an absolute perfect location, walking distance from everything Austin has to offer. The loft was also very spacious and perfect for entertaining. The Walker Luxury Vacation stuff went above and beyond my expectations. The entire weekend was perfect!

The studio is super central and stylish. It is super spacious and well equipped, doesn't leave much privacy though. All three rooms are basically connected. If you are a bunch of friends it is much fun! But you sleep all more or less in the same room. The terrace on the street is spacious and convenient, can be a bit loud due to the street an ACs in the surrounding buildings though.

This was the perfect size for our party of 7 over Memorial Day Weekend. The place was spotless, we felt so secure as all women staying in a new city, and the location could not be more perfect. It is centrally located Downtown close to 6th Street and so easy to get home to at the end of the night. There were more than enough linens & toiletries for all 7 of us and the WLVR team could not have been more communicative, helpful, and accommodating. I highly recommend this rental for anyone visiting Austin!
