My husband Dennis and I have stayed in VRBOs for many years and so I have a good sense of what guests need and want for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

We absolutely love the live music scene in Austin, and the youthful, spontaneous nature of urban living. We are avid bikers and spend a lot of time exploring the bike trails and paths around town. Everything we do is within a few mile radius of our home, including our vacation rental. That means we can make sure everything is in top shape for our guests, and respond quickly should any problems arise.

What a great location! Nestled in the quiet Travis Heights neighborhood just blocks away from a vibrant happening area of Austin, River City Flats are the perfect size for comfort and functionality, and luxurious enough without a lot of fuss.

You also can't beat the convenience of bus and taxi to explore all of downtown Austin, and getting to and from the airport.

GREAT TEMPORARY HOME

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and our 14-year-old son were fortunate to spend a month at this beautiful place. The location is wonderful--an older, quiet tree-filled neighborhood. Be prepared to set aside some time each day for taking a walk. There are side streets to explore with lovely homes, as well as nearby Stacy Park with a nice trail running along the creek, as well as Stacy Pool. Also, South Congress is nearby with a lot of shops and restaurants. As someone who has resigned himself to long waits at Home Slice Pizza, it was a great feeling to call ahead and order and pick up a pizza and walk back to eat it at our place. It is also nice to be able to walk to the Continental Club for great music. A couple of time I also walked across the Lake to Rainey Street to hear music.
A big plus for us was the beautiful back yard. My son loved to play Frisbee and football with friends back there, and we could sit on the balcony and watch.

GREAT HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We chose this home for a short out of town vacation. The home is beautifully updated and the location close to South Congress (and the great food choices) and I-35 give you great access to everything you need. Plenty of space for our family of four. Beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything needed to fix a nice meal if you choose to stay in and eat. We really enjoyed our stay!

GREAT PLACE FOR SOCO

  • 4 of 5
it was a great place for soco - and there is an app for taxis that makes it easy to get into downtown.
The place is fantastic - super clean - there is even a fire pit in the back yard!

The only thing that made this good insted of excellent is early Saturday morning (my only sleep in morning) there were workers cutting grass for awhile - not relaxing at all.

The cancelation policy is strictly enforced - even moments after booking - be aware.

The duplex/apartment was great! Awesome location close to South Congress! I recommend bringing bikes and exploring the neighborhoods/shops on SOCO/Barton Springs/Zilker Park. Property was very clean and well kept! I would completely recommend it without doubt!

South Congress is a neighborhood located on South Congress Avenue in Austin. It is also a nationally-known shopping and cultural district famous for its many eclectic small retailers, restaurants, music and art venues and, more recently, food trucks.

South Congress begins at the Colorado River and Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge and runs due south towards Ben White Boulevard/TX-71. The area is bordered by two historic South Austin neighborhoods: Travis Heights to the east and Bouldin Creek to the west. River City Flats is located in the heart of Travis Heights

Since its humble beginnings in the 1850s, South Congress Avenue has been transformed from a rural country road to the capital city gateway and, finally, to the vibrant shopping district that it is today. Many Austinites attribute its enduring popularity to the magnificent and unobstructed view of the Texas State Capitol, convenience to cultural events at Auditorium Shores and Zilker Park, performing arts at the Long Center, ACL Live, and Zachary Scott Theater.
