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 renovation, 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!

The proximity to downtown and South Congress is just one of the area's attractions. The neighborhood has gently rolling hills offering views of downtown, is filled with gorgeous live oak trees, and has many recreation opportunities.

What makes this townhome unique

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

• Proximity to fun and activities yet peaceful and quiet

• Less expensive, more private, and much larger than a hotel room

• Light filled, relaxing, and inviting space

• High-quality mattresses, bedding, and furnishings

• Covered parking + free street parking

• WiFi throughout

• RENT WITH CONFIDENCE: With 10 years of experience, Soco Spaces has always operated in compliance with the city of Austin legal requirements.

The City of Austin requires that Vacation rentals obtain a license for legal operation.

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!

Cute, Comfortable, Great Neighborhood!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at SoCo. Everything was clean, convenient, and comfortable. The surrounding neighborhood was amazing and it was just a few minutes drive to South Congress where there was an abundance of food and shops. I would definitely stay here again!

Great value good location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the orange door 3 nights with another couple the beggining April. We were able to walk to south congress and lots of other areas which was a huge plus for us. The duplex was plenty big enough for 4 people and had everything we needed. It is decorated very modern but comfortable and was very clean. We enjoyed a glass of wine on the back patio under the bistro lights. I would reccomend this property to anyone visiting Austin!

This is now my favorite place to stay in Austin. Tastefully decorated, immaculately clean, located in a beautiful neighborhood just minutes from SOCO. In addition, the owners are very quick to respond to any inquiries. Highly recommended!

This house is beautiful and located in the perfect area. It was super close to South Congress which has some amazing restaurants, fun shops and great bars. The house itself was well-maintained and had everything we needed for the long weekend. Will definitely be staying again the next time we're in Austin.
