Austin Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6
The cozy Travis Heights home is a short, five-block walk to historic South Congress Avenue with an eclectic mix of fine restaurants, music venues, vintage (clothing) shops, and unique culture of street vendors, musicians & artists..and my favorites, Jo's Coffee, Amy's ice cream, and Guero's Tex/Mex.
The 1930's stone cottage, nestled under towering Pecans and Live Oak trees in a historic neighborhood, is 'Old Austin at its finest.' Catch the Congress Ave bus to watch the bats fly from the bridge, or browse Downtown's 2nd, 4th and 6th Street's music/night life districts.
The Travis Heights home is beautifully decorated and landscaped, modern everything, new central air/heat, washer/dryer, shaded-gated patio and off street parking. The upstairs Tree House Bedroom has a queen Tempurpedic, sitting area and private bath. The downstairs Patio Bedroom has a double futon bed and twin, full bath, and french doors opening to a private patio. The LR has a comfortable single futon bed/couch.
The cottage is one block from Stacey Park hike and bike trails, tennis courts, children’s playground, and free heated swimming pool. I include two bikes and tennis rackets. Stay in the heartbeat of what makes Austin unique and loved by so many--experience its romance, grace, & excitement.
The front door has no steps and is wheel chair assessable. There's no car traffic on Pecan Grove, just foot and stroller traffic to Stacey park.
You're within a half mile of Town Lake, bordered by 10 miles of hike/bike trails, where you can find kayaking, sculling, and canoeing for rent. Catch (from April to Oct) the largest urban bat population flying at dusk at the Congress Street Bridge. Walk across the bridge to enter the new Second Street restaurants & shopping area, or the nightlife in the Warehouse 4th Street or the younger Sixth Street (Old Pecan Street) Districts. Lots of pedi-cabs and horse carriages. Also enjoy swimming in Deep Eddy & the Barton Springs natural spring-fed pools--where Austin stays cool.

Why Charla Hathaway chose Austin
Creekside Cottage is in quiet, distinguished neighborhood in the heart of Old Austin within blocks of South Congress and Downtown. The home borders a walk bridge on a dead-end street; no cars, just walkers on their way to the park.
What makes this cottage unique
Having bedrooms on two levels, up and downstairs (each with their own bathroom), gives privacy. The 1930's vintage stone cottage is full of light, charm, efficient use of space, and shaded by stately pecan trees.
