CHARMING HOUSE TRAVIS HEIGHTS / SOUTH CONGRESS - SOCO / DOWNTOWN AREA

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

This house was built in 1926, in historic Travis Heights. It still has its old-world charm, even though we have modernized it for comfortable living. The home is equipped with central air-conditioning and heat, kitchen appliances including refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, gas stove/oven, and microwave. The one full bathroom has a claw-foot tub with shower - so take care in climbing in and out! Sitting areas have been furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs, tables, and an HD television. Both bedrooms include queen-sized beds with Tempurpedic mattresses. There is a dining room and breakfast bar, as well as a lounge near the kitchen for additional space and relaxation. A washer and dryer are present for your use. Internet access via WiFi is also included. This stand-alone bungalow has a covered front porch, driveway for parking, plenty of street parking, as well as fenced-in backyard.

This rental property is located in Travis Heights, in the heart of the 78704 zip code. Though located on a quiet street, it is only a few blocks from the hubbub of South Congress, and has easy access by foot or short drive to downtown Austin, the UT campus, Zilker Park, and Lady Bird Lake. The hip feel of SOCO is magnetic and can be felt at this rental. Watch a game on the patio at Doc's, grab a bite at one of the many great restaurants (we recommend Perla's), and then wind down with a nightcap at the Continental Club without ever moving your car!

Our property is TurnKey Rental Certified. When you book with us we’ll send you our mobile app with directions, our 24-hour live support number and rental guide. Then, you can drive right to the rental which features a digital door lock where you’ll use your unique code to enter (no need to meet for keys). Inside, you'll enjoy our premium amenities: shampoo, soaps, paper products and hotel-quality towels and linens. You can request an early check-in / late check-out and we will arrange it whenever possible.

*All TurnKey Vacation Rentals follow local and state tax rules. In Austin, city and state taxes add 15% to the reservation rates. Each reservation also requires a $99 cleaning fee, and the standard $39.99 Property Damage Protection policy.

DISMAL

  • 1 of 5
The only favorable features of this property are these: location (a quiet street in Travis Heights) and good mattresses. The place is otherwise dismally inadequate -- in need of painting outside and inside and in need of thorough cleaning and refurnishing and especially in need of basic kitchen wares and dishes and glasses. When I visit Austin, I enjoy buying food from local farms and local farmers' markets, and so I usually rent a place with a kitchen so that I can store my food and cook my own meals. I entered Casa Vinita's dark interior and immediately smelled stale air and moth balls, and when I reached the kitchen, I found the it shockingly inadequate. Almost all the eating utensils were plastic. The only cutting knives were a paring knife and a steak knife. The only cooking vessels were two small, dirty skillets and one large, dirty skillet. The stove top was dirty, with grease spatters and bits of dried vegetable matter around the burners and on the back panel. There's a small set of dinner and salad plates, bowls, saucers and cups, but no serving dishes or serving utensils. There are four wine glasses, but the only two coffee mugs are "freebies" from a diagnostic clinic. Kitchen drawers, like everything else, were dirty, some filled with twine and "beer brand" coasters and the like, apparently left from previous tenants. I was disgusted and called the owner right away and said the house was not really clean, especially the kitchen, and that the kitchen supplies were appallingly inadequate. I asked for at least a partial refund, which she refused. She said she'd go out and buy kitchen items that I specified were basic to kitchen functionality, which she did, and when she came, she also wiped down the stove top. I could then do the cooking I needed to do, but it was very unpleasant to stay in such a shabby and poorly appointed house. Not only is the kitchen inadequately supplied, but there are no bedside or sofa-side reading lamps. The sofa itself is a cheap, ugly sort of sectional, with big throw pillows against the back -- most uncomfortable. The beds had clean sheets but no bedspreads, only a blanket folded at the foot. This property appears to be valued by its owners only as a cash cow, with little if any thought given to the comfort of people who PAY to stay there. I will never stay there again, never recommend it to anyone, and in fact warn friends interested in renting in that area to steer clear of this property.

Owner's Response: Pam, I am sorry that my property did not fulfill your expectations. However, this house is clearly described in our listing, which is an accurate depiction of the property. I oversee the cleaning myself, and had checked the house prior to your arrival, and can assure you that it was clean (by the way, we have cedar-lined closets - no mothballs!). Your description of the state of the house when you arrived is inaccurate. Thank you for fairly pointing out that I did try to satisfy you, including immediately going out and buying the kitchen equipment that you needed, in addition to other items that I thought you might utilize. None of our prior guests have indicated any deficiencies in the kitchen or with the house and the contents of the house, but I was quite willing to try to make you happy, if at all possible. I wish you luck in your future travels. - Vinita.

QUIET CHARM CLOSE TO S. CONGRESS

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at this wonderful oasis two years in a row for the music portion of SXSW. It is conveniently close to South Congress and also to downtown Austin. We walked everywhere from here and it couldn't have been more perfect. The home is charming and clean and very private. There are marvelous live oak trees surrounding the property and it is a pleasure to sit and watch the Grackles from the back patio in the morning with a cup of coffee as we planned our day of music. Austin is a terrific town to visit and this house is the perfect location to use as a home-base for all your activities.

GREAT LOCATION/GREAT TIME

I rented this property for a family wedding over Memorial Day weekend. The property was beautiful! Wonderful neighborhood, close to everything but still nice and quiet at the actual property. Will totally recommend this property to anyone.

  • 5 of 5
Very well taken care of, clean and spacious house on a quiet street just off Riverside Dr. and S. Commerce street. Quick and easy access to S. Commerce, Downtown and Barton Springs. We were very impressed with the layout, location and care given to this wonderful place. We are already preparing to schedule a second stay here.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words, and for being such great guests. You probably meant "South Congress" instead of "South Commerce" in your review. Looking forward to seeing you again!

WONDERFUL STAY AT A BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
I love this place. It is a cute cottage that is close to downtown. I stayed here and found that it was a quick trip to local attractions and other Austin attractions. I can not wait to return to Austin so I can stay at this perfect home. I wish I could have stayed longer!

If you are interested in enjoying the music scene and bars on 6th Street, dining and shopping on South Congress (SoCo) Avenue, hiking or jogging on the trail around Lady Bird Lake, enjoying the festivities during the South-by-Southwest or ACL festivals, or taking a dip in Barton Springs - all are within walking distance.
