Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

Laid-back Luxury in the Heart of Travis Heights

Our Mid-Century Modern Guest House is the perfect spot to enjoy the charming, safe neighborhood of Travis Heights. Quiet and relaxing, yet only 1/2 mile from SOCO and a short distance from all central Austin attractions, it is an ideal base for visiting Austin. Smartly furnished with modern, designer pieces and contemporary art. Large terrace, screened porch with outdoor grill and comfortable seating overlook the native-plant landscaped backyard. Three (3) spacious bedrooms and two (2) baths accommodate 6 guests. The large kitchen is fully equipped for cooking (and/or relaxing), and opens onto the dining area and den. The comfortable living room is perfect for visiting, reading, or watching movies or cable on the Sony flat-screen TV. Big Stacy Pool is a short walk away, as is the 1.2 mile hike/bike trail in the gorgeous, wooded Blunn Creek Greenbelt. Both I-35 and State Highway 71 are easily accessed, just minutes away. Our guest house is family owned and operated and is a fully licensed short-term vacation rental by the City of Austin.

About Ann Watson and Jay Allison

I am Ann. My husband, Jay, and I live in Houston. We initially bought our mid-century modern home in the quiet, historical neighborhood of Travis Heights because we liked its unique qualities and location, close to SOCO, St. Edward's U. and downtown. Hopefully it will be our retirement home some day. Today it is perfectly refurbished and furnished with a pleasing mix of modern and vintage pieces along with our collection of bright modern prints and photographs.

Ann Watson and Jay Allison purchased this house in 2008

Why Ann Watson and Jay Allison chose Austin

Travis Heights is a trendy, eclectic neighborhood, with an interesting mix of old historic and new modern houses. It has hills and wonderful views, with dining, shopping, hiking, and music, all just a short walk or drive away!

What makes this house unique

Our historic neighborhood is perfect, with easy access to Austin Bergstrom International Airport, Downtown, Lady Bird Lake, Zilker Park, South Congress (SOCO), the Blunn Creek Greenbelt, UT, the Austin Convention Center, and the Long Center for the Performing Arts.

GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six absolutely LOVED this house! It is very, very comfortable, quiet and has a spacious layout. We found the '50s decor to be charming. The house was extremely well-stocked and cared-for. The neighborhood is great, with close proximity to lots of shopping and entertainment. Due to the inclement weather, we weren't able to use any of the outdoor spaces/barbecue but we appreciated them as well. I'd highly recommend this property.

A great house in a great neighborhood! It's a Travis heights special!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had extended business in Austin and stayed here for a number of months. The house is great! The neighborhood is as good as it gets! It's really nice and very close to everything! South congress shopping and food is around the corner. Very walkable to waterfront and Boardwalk. We walked many times over to Barton springs and to downtown. If you want a great in town house this is it.. The place is clean and well kept! Ann and Jay are great owners and will get anything taken care of quickly, should issue arise.. The pictures are very representative of the house. We had a great time and it worked great for us!

Harris Park Historical House

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed in this house for 10 days during our sons graduation from UT. It was conveniently close to the campus for the Thanksgiving football game against TCU and best of all, it was close enough to walk to the graduation. Getting to and from the freeway is easy and to down town Austin. Within walking distance to eateries as well. The house was built in the early 1900's and was beautifully refurbished. Loved the wooden floors & the french doors. The home was large enough to accommodate a large family. It was very clean upon arrival. The house was fully stocked with everything you could need. The owners were very accessible when we had a small issue arise. They took care of it instantly. We definitely recommend this rental to anyone coming to Austin. We'll be back for our son's Master's graduation.

Bridal Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The bride and her bridesmaids had a chance to spend some quality time together. The home was spacious enough and had enough bathrooms for 6 young women to visit, relax and then finally spread out and get ready for the big day. The home was great and the property owners did everything possible to accommodate the needs of our group. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone visiting Austin.
