South Austin Neighborhood Guide

Residential · Up-and-coming · Friendly

When most people think of Texas, they think of a land with wide-open spaces that go on for miles. That “everything’s bigger in Texas” ideal often feels untrue in the city of Austin— except for South Austin. No neighborhood in the city feels less city-like and more suburban than here. But, don’t let the signs for PTA meetings and blood drives completely throw you off.


While the residential vibes of South Austin allow you to live the white-picket fantasy, its location, only minutes away from some of Austin’s best hot-spots, allows you to experience the best the city has to offer. So, while the bustling streets of South Congress’ bars and restaurants may be a few minutes drive up the road, you still get to return home to a far less busy (i.e. less noisy) place.

South Austin is largely responsible for "keeping Austin weird" as it is far removed from the tech and young professional vibes that have started to become more common in the city. The area is known for a strong arts, food, & culture scene.
Connecting with a local Austin apartment expert is the best & fastest way to find apartments in Austin. You’ll get access to all the current rent specials in Austin, get a custom list of recommended buildings (some of which you might not even know about), and sign your next lease with confidence.
Apartment policies regarding AirBnB change frequently, so for the most accurate list, we recommend reaching out to one of our Locators for the most up-to-date information.
It is best to start looking for apartments in Austin 10 weeks before your move-in date. 10 weeks will allow you to see all of the inventory available, and also give you plenty of time to tour units and consider your options.
Apartment listing websites can be great for preliminary research, but working with a Locator allows you to ask questions, get personalized suggestions, find buildings you might not have found on your own, find the best rent discounts, and ultimately sign a lease in a place that you love with zero stress and absolute confidence.
