About Dani Rasmussen

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 Rasmussen purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Dani Rasmussen 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.

Wonderful to come back to at the end of the day!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Green Door for a week in April. We travel a lot, and I have to say this was one of my favorite rentals ever. The central location is great for getting around Austin. The reservation process and communications regarding the rental were excellent. The townhouse is very well decorated, spotlessly clean, uncluttered, and very comfortable. It has all the amenities you would want: comfortable beds, nice linens and towels, a well appointed kitchen, an outdoor grill, a nice deck to relax on at the end of the day. The photos and description online are spot on.

The attention to detail by the owners is evident and makes the ambience of this place special. We arrived late at night, and Dani had left lights on for us, with the internet radio playing soft music...a very warm welcome. It was a pleasure to stay here. Kudos to Dani and Joel.

Disappointed in SoCo Spaces

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I, who have rented numerous properties in the U.S., Europe and Australia just spent three weeks at the Green Door condo (one of four condos named for colors situated in two side-by-side duplexes) in Austin Jan. 2015.

We found ourselves disappointed in the comfort level. Yes, the contemporary, simple lines look nice in the photos on the site, but we didn't really notice that the dining room chairs were plastic with no backs and that the floor was a painted concrete throughout the unit, which is easy to see when looking back at the photos. Only one throw rug to add any warmth and that was a plastic-feeling shag rug underneath the coffee table. The nice looking sectional was rather stiff and the only seating available. The living area needs a comfortable easy chair with an ottoman for an alternate choice to the stiff sectional.

We are retired and beginning to age, and comfort is very important to us. With a few changes it would be a lovely place to rent. It desperately needs carpeting, which would warm the whole place up, and if not that, then at least some soft throw rugs, particularly by the beds. And, replacing the dining room chairs with actual chairs would be better for the back. We found one of the mattresses needed to be replaced, as well.

On the good side, it is in a great location in the Travis Heights neighborhood and close to the desirable SoCo district. It had a very nice wrap-around deck with table and chairs, a nice bathroom with a 'rain' showerhead, and a nice gas range and hood in the kitchen.

Love The Green Door at Soco Spaces

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in one of the lovely duplexes Soco Spaces provides in the Travis Heights area. They really do think of everything! The amenities, furniture, fixtures.... it is all wonderful and such great taste in mid-century modern style. We walked to dinner on South Congress and didn't even have to mess with parking! It is a fabulous neighborhood and an easy walk! Perfect for our visits to see our daughter in college. We will definitely be back soon!

Beautiful home, interior design and perfect locn

  • 5 of 5

Dani and Joel created an amazing space and experience from start to finish. Their home is striking inside and out, perfectly maintained and in the perfect location. I love the clean, contemporary interior design from the art to the furnishings and even the towels. The wrap around deck is so inviting that you may decide to stay 'home' during your entire visit. You don't need anything. Just show up and enjoy. Thanks Dani and Joel! See you in 2015.

Well maintained and perfectly located!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went to Austin for a brief getaway and to attend a concert. It was the first time there for both of us and where we very pleased with the experience. The city is very inviting and clean. There are a ton of places to entertain yourself at. The county/city parks and spring fed pools are awesome, state parks offer some great hiking, shopping is right around the corner, there a several entertainment districts, incredible bars, and the place is full of restaurants that will leave your mouth watering for more. In 4 days we did not have a single meal that was not incredible.

Accommodations - the house gets an A+. It is actually a duplex, but you would never know it other than seeing the other tenants car in the driveway. It's located in an upscale residential neighborhood that is beautiful and incredibly located . Your less than a mile from the South Congress ave area and a short cab ride to the party areas of Downtown ($10-20 cab ride). The owners have taken great care in maintaining the property in tip top condition. There is a front porch that wraps around to the side which I found to be a great place to sit each afternoon. Your close to the highway, but again would never know it, so getting out and about is a breeze. In all the rentals we have stayed over the years the bedding in this unit was in the top tier for comfort. The unit has been tastefully remodeled. No corners where cut which to me says a lot about the owners and their willingness to provide the best experience to the renter as possible, which is what we had.

Beautiful, Modern, Chic Home in Travis Heights!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here based on a recommendation of a friend who lives in Austin and he definitely knew what I was looking for!

I was in Austin for a conference at the Convention Center for a week along with a co-worker. Instead of staying in separate hotel rooms $$$$, we opted to stay in The Green Door by SoCo Spaces.

The reservations, communication and support from the owners was incredible as was the neighborhood which was quiet and seemed far-removed from a bustling city.

No fault of the owners, we thought it would be smart to get a weeklong bus pass, but after a day ditched those for taxi 's on the Hail a Cab Austin app.

Even with cab fare, we came out far cheaper than a hotel, enjoyed having a house, kitchen, and laundry to ourselves and a quiet patio to chill out on in the evenings.

Highly recommend and hope to be back someday soon.
