About Dani & Joel

We've lived in Austin since 1999 and we love it. We enjoy traveling (as often as possible) and meeting the travelers that grace our vacation rentals. Our other passions include graphic design, film making, publishing, and wake-surfing on lake Austin.

Dani & Joel purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Dani & Joel chose Austin

The eclectic, walking-neighborhood, combined with the classic mid-century lines of the home had us hooked!

What makes this townhome unique

• Located in one of the most coveted, eclectic neighborhoods in Austin- close to vibrant South Congress and downtown

• Light filled, relaxing, and inviting space

• High-quality mattresses, bedding, and furnishings

• Covered parking + free street parking

Beautiful, Modern, and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I recently stayed at the Orange Door. What a beautiful spot. It is meticulously decorated (I took photos for ideas for my house) and it has everything you could ever need if you want to cook. We didn't cook while we were there so didn't get to test out the stove and the beautiful range hood. It is wonderful to have your own laundry room as well so you don't have to haul as many clothes with you. The location is perfect - just minutes to downtown and to several fun spots. The neighborhood is really nice and quiet and the neighbors are super friendly. Also, Dani is the consummate hostess. She quickly answered all the questions I had and gave great suggestions for places to eat and explore. I'd love to stay in the other places too. I highly recommend the Orange Door to anyone looking for a place to stay in Austin. You will not be disappointed!

Great digs for an Austin visit!

  • 5 of 5

This spot was a great place to stay in Austin. We were traveling with two couples and it suited our needs very well. It was beautifully furnished -- it had everything we needed and nothing more. Clean and comfortable, it was large enough that we could relax together when we weren't out seeing things. The kitchen was well-equipped and we enjoyed the opportunity to make breakfast in house. The location allowed us to get places easily and the neighborhood made us feel at home. We highly recommend this spot for an Austin stay!

Wonderful Austin Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for such for your wonderful accommodations. We came from New York with two teenage

boys and found this place to be perfect for our family - conveniently located, very comfortable and a lovely neighborhood. It had everything that we needed for a memorable stay. The place was spotlessly clean and comfortable, walking distance to So Congress, although we

did rent a car to explore outside of the city. Easy to get around on public transportation as well.

Dani and Joel were incredibly accommodating and

lovely to deal with...I highly recommend staying here!!

Couldn't ask for more. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at SoCo Spaces and we won't stay anywhere else in Austin from now on.

We had another great stay at the yellow door. We wish there were these

exact accommodations in every city we traveled to!

Our two children were so comfortable and probably slept the best on any

trip!

Great location, excellent property

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed at this property. The duplex is very well appointed and the location could not be better. Travis Heights is the heart of Austin in many ways. Great restaurants, music and shopping all moments away. The property owners are very prompt in communications and completely welcoming. I will always try to stay in one of their places.

Perfect place for 2 couples or a small family!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just visited Austin for the first time with another couple for ACL and stayed in this house. It exceeded our expectations. The pictures on the site are all accurate, yet when we walked into the home we were pleasantly surprised . It's very clean and open with all the appliances you would need. A 10 minute walk to South Congress' bars and restaurants, yet nestled into a quiet and charming neighborhood, we couldn't have picked a better location. The owners were extremely helpful in advance and kept the communication lines wide open for anything we needed.

I highly recommend you stay at any SoCo Places property. Next time I return to Austin, I know where I'll be staying.
