PRIVATE HOME IN TRAVIS HEIGHTS

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, 2000 Sq-Ft Home Nestled Close To All The Action (Sleeps 6)

Main floor of Spacious, luxurious house in the centrally located Travis Heights neighborhood. Large kitchen/dining room, living room with fireplace, sunroom/rec room, master bedroom and bath, plus 2 guest rooms with a full bath.

Relaxing, secluded, and secure inside and out. Great yard if you want relax outdoors or have an afternoon barbecue. For nightlife, you have easy access to Rainey Street district, South Congress, downtown, and Town Lake: the best of the best! Several choices for great dining (Vespaio, Guero's, Hopdoddy) and hip breakfast spots (Jo's Coffee, South Congress Cafe).

Rainey Street's charm is where it's at, and you'll be just down the street! It's quintessential Austin, relaxed, good-looking, and fun! We highly recommend starting things off at Lustre Pearl, continuing across the street at Clive Bar, and then making a stop at Bar 96. You'll be glad you did!

Expect to explore all of Austin's hotspots in the heart of the action, and return home to cool, spacious, private accommodations in a secure, quiet neighborhood. You'll have easy accessibility to everything, much of it in walking distance, including coffee shops, great shopping, excellent dinner and lunch options for a variety of budgets, high to low. A few minutes to downtown and, for many, an enjoyable walk or quick bike ride. If you don't feel like walking, hail a cab or take one of many buses from Congress Ave.

On arrival, you'll find a guide we've put together that will point you in the direction of what you need: shopping, dining, bars, culture—we can guide you to the flavor you're after and introduce you to something new along the way. No doubt, you'll have an excellent stay at our place!

As a person who loves to travel, and an owner of several thriving businesses, I know something about being treated right. There's a particular atmosphere I enjoy, and it has to be the right mix, the right combination of things. I'm super picky about cleanliness and I'm serious about fun—so putting those things together right gets my attention. In my bars, and in the restaurants I visit, things have to look good and work well, simultaneously. When something's off, I can't keep my mind off of it–it's too much of a distraction. So I notice, well, everything.

What this says about my living spaces, is that they are well maintained, roomy—I may need to bust out a dance party at any moment!—comfortable, and squeaky clean. People know that I like to have fun, that I demand quality, and that I take care of business. As a guest in my home you will have everything you need to enjoy yourself as you like. Relax, have fun, socialize, and rest. The beds are comfortable, the sofas seat you and a gaggle of others, and there's room to stretch out. Be together, cook, dance, watch movies, party, do yoga, and have privacy when you need it—vacations are all about you. Be yourself, enjoy yourself, and take care of yourself; it's exactly what we do.

I love this property because when I'm home, I really feel like I'm getting away from it all even though it's situated very close to all of Austin's hotspots. It really has a nice feel—friendly and inviting, but tucked away.

What's special about the Betty Jo house is its size (it's big!), that it's secluded and quiet, and that it's so close to all of the action.

I was in Austin for business and pleasure. The location made it a no brainer. 5 mins to downtown & 5 mins to S.Congress.The house is located in my favorite neighborhood, Travis Heights. It was clean, comfy, beautiful and private. Booking was easy, and the rate extremely reasonable. There is plenty of space for a larger group but still cozy enough for one. The open lay out and side patio make it perfect for entertaining. I plan to book it again soon for a girls getaway. I love, love this house and its location. I'll never stay in a hotel again!
