Why Jay Reynolds or Cynthia Reynolds chose Austin

We bought this property because we love the neighborhood. We love being close to The Greenbelt, Kerbey Lane Cafe, downtown Austin, and Zilker Park.

What makes this house unique

You can walk around the corner, into a neighborhood Greenbelt entrance and feel like you're out in the middle of nowhere. It's beautiful out there and an amazing way to escape into nature. Also, being so close to downtown, but in IN downtown has it's serious benefits.

Excellent Service

  • 5 of 5
This duplex is great. Everything I needed, and more, for a comfortable visit in Austin. The hot tub is fabulous, the beds are comfortable. Jay and Lauren are responsive to all needs and they are the best resource for any of your Austin questions. I was really impressed with the level of service for the low price. I will be returning to stay with Vacation Cake.

Great Little Austin Pad

  • 5 of 5
Great little half duplex in Austin in a very central location. This place had everything we needed, full size washer & dryer and a little outdoor patio area with a BBQ grill (which we used quite a bit) and hot tub and king size bed which was very comfy. The bathroom and kitchen were well stocked with essentials and tons of towels, also detergent for the laundry which was great and often isn't provided- so a lot of thoughtful extra touches. The owner (Jay) was really responsive when we mentioned that the dining room light bulb had gone and came over to fix it during our stay. This isn't a brand new house, as it appears to be in an established older part of Austin, so do not expect a state of the art home, but it was really clean and comfortable and the wifi was great, easy to access and seemed to have a good speed at all times. Owners also have a lot of information in a binder about the area and local restaurants and full cable- so all the comforts of home- highly recommended.

Great location, relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here almost a week, and found everything I needed at this great little house. The house was clean and well stocked, the bed was comfortable, the kitchen had most of what I needed to cook meals, and the hot tub was an awesome bonus. Jay was super responsive to any requests I had and was very easy to work with. The location is fantastic - close to lots of restaurants and bars, and walking distance to the scenic Greenbelt (which my dog appreciated). I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for a girls weekend

  • 5 of 5
We got the Traveler as a place to stay for a bachelorette party. We specifically wanted this one due to it having a hot tub. I was hosting so I coordinated all the arrangements. I worked directly with Jay, but sometimes had to reach out to Lauren. Both were extremely professional and polite. I was very pleased with how timely my questions were answered and just overall impressed with the whole process. Jay even allowed me to check in early to decorate even though the grounds needed minor maintenance. I assured him I didn't mind working around what they were doing so he agreed to allow the early check in.

The house offered all the comforts of home, including basic kitchen cooking/eating items to hand soap and lotion in the bathroom. If I say anything negative about the house, is the drive way and walking to the front door is on a steep hill, but you're in hill country so what can you do.

I love how close everything was to the Traveler. 7 mins and we're downtown. 3 mins and we're at the highway. 2 blocks away from several restaurants and one block from the most honk tonk country bars/dance hall I've ever been to (The Broken Spoke).

LOVE LOVE LOVE this house. I expect to do business again with Vacation Cake (Jay). Never again will I stay in a hotel while traveling to Austin!! Thank you again so much!!

Very Nice, Easy to Work With

  • 5 of 5
I booked the Traveler for my co-workers during SXSW. Everything was clean and everyone had nothing but good things to say. One group even said their hosts left beer for them in the fridge :)

Austin cottage

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was great, in easy distance of Austin centre, clean and quiet. Could do with some comfortable easy chairs! Loved the area and would definitely stay there again should we visit Austin again. Very nice.

Welcome to 78704! This property, which we call The Traveler, is located in the heart of the most famous zip code in Austin. Dozens of fantastic restaurants, bars, parks, trails, ice cream shops, etc are within just a few blocks. Downtown Austin is only about 2.5 miles away.

Just a few blocks down the road you have a neighborhood entrance to The Barton Creek Greenbelt...which is like the central nervous system for exploring Austin. You can hike down to Zilker Park without ever seeing a striped road.
