Hi there,

I live in Northern California but bought a beautiful 1930's Tudor style home in the heart of the best neighborhood in vibrant Austin TX because I can't get enough of it. The night life, outdoor activities, fun people and amazing weather are just some of the reasons I love this place. It's living in a beautiful tree lined neighborhood but being able to walk to cool restaurants and the best live music venue in all of Austin. Not to mention a stone's throw to downtown. I hope you learn to love Austin as much as I do.

Lisa Rom purchased this house in 2012

The pictures speak for themselves. This house is definitely a gem in the prestigious Travis Heights neighborhood.

The house is spacious, has big beautiful bedrooms, modern decor and has a great old vibe but is kept immaculately clean and presented with modern hip furnishings. The original beauty of the home has been maintained throughout. I also have bikes available for enjoying the fun outdoor lifestyle that locals can't get enough of.

Amazing house in a lovely neighbourhood

We stayed at Lisa's house for SXSW 2014 and we absolutely loved it. The house itself is a gem with ample room and tasteful interior, clean and well maintained, located in a lovely residential neighbourhood. SoCo, Magnolia Cafe and South Congress Cafe are just a stone throw away. Lisa was always helpful, even after the umpteenth question. I highly recommend staying with Lisa, would and probably will do it again.

We arrived on Christmas Eve with our daughter and teenage grandson to spend the holidays, and Lisa had stocked the kitchen with goodies for our Christmas breakfast. The house is very comfortable and spacious for four people. The kitchen is spacious and great to cook in, and we could see lots of squirrels and birds just outside the dining room window. Plus it's a short walk through a lovely park to the action (both food and music) on South Congress Street. Lisa was very helpful and responsive to our questions.
Austin's a great town to visit, the Travis Heights/Soco area well located enjoy what Austin offers (good food, lots of live music, walks along the river, and friendly people), and this VRBO rental is the icing on the cake!

Austin in May

This is the second time I have stayed in the "Hip Soco Beauty" and look forward to my next trip soon. The home is cozy, clean and has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. It's not only a charming home in a quaint neighborhood, but walking distance to S Congress where there is a lot of activity and a little something for everyone. Great eats (and yes, food trucks!), music, art and shopping. If the mile long walk is too far, grab one of the two cruiser bicycles in the garage - it's an easy and enjoyable ride. Looking for a fun outing? Rent a kayak, canoe or paddle board from Zilker Park Boat Rentals for a relaxing activity on the water. And definitely indulge in a specialty "big fat donut" at Gordoughs on S 1st Street (you can ride the bike there too).

First time at this location and was so pleased. This house is a true gem - completely restored, original flooring and fixtures, etc. Talk about comfort,everything you would need and more was provided. The whole house is fully equipt ,home away from home. Very clean, private with a beautiful setting and decor. I was traveling for business and the location was perfect for a quick cab ride to the downtown convention center. I recommend this property to anyone planning on visiting Austin ,and I will definitely visit here myself next time I'm in town. Fabulous place!

Great location for exploring Austin

We loved being located within easy walking distance to South Congress and all its food trucks/restaurants as well as cool shops. The home is very clean and tastefully decorated. The two beds were comfy, and so was the inflatable mattress. All the living is on one floor and it feels very spacious. The kitchen is well stocked, although we ate out.
Recommend you save up an appetite to try the food trucks on SoCo. We loved Hopdoddy, known for its burgers, but had to line up. Had a great brunch at the Austin Motel's outdoor patio. Lovely neighbourhood. Lovely visit!
