Welcome to Casa Vinita!
We are officially licensed by the city of Austin to operate our home as a short term rental.
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.
Come and stay to enjoy all that Austin has to offer - much within walking distance - including SXSW, ACL, cheering on the Longhorns, conventions in downtown, etc. Or relax with leisurely hikes around Town Lake or Zilker Park, as well as the miles of nature trails nearby.
We hope to do everything we can to make your visit as enjoyable and carefree as possible.
Casa Vinita bears my name, because of the pride with which I offer this cottage to our guests. As such, I ask that you take care of my home, should you honor us with your stay.
Please note: No pets. No smoking.
Children are welcome.
