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

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, comfortably sleeps 4, full kitchen, washer/dryer

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.

Quiet charm close to S. Congress

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.

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.

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!

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!

Car: not necessary

Travis Heights is a charming, eclectic, and historic neighborhood located in south Austin, Texas. It is known for it's proximity to downtown, SoCo, IH-35, Lady Bird Lake, Zilker Park, and Barton Springs Pool. 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. We are also a short walk from Hotel Saint Cecilia.

Travis Heights is home to Big Stacy and Little Stacy parks and the Blunn Creek greenbelt. Nearby attractions and venues include Auditorium Shores and Austin Convention Center for SXSW, as well as Zilker Park for ACL Fest, and the Moody Theater for ACL Live. A short drive on nearby IH-35 will get you to Inner Space Cavern, one of the best preserved caves in Texas. Or satisfy your shopping itch by visiting the giant outlet malls in neighboring San Marcos or Round Rock. An approximate 20-30 minute drive will get you to the new Formula 1 racetrack.

Austin is known as the Live Music Capital of the world - and many of the clubs that host these bands are located on infamous 6th Street in downtown. Also nearby are a multitude of restaurants, the Warehouse district, the State Capitol, Guadalupe street (AKA 'the Drag'), and of course the UT campus and home to the Texas Longhorns - all within a few minutes drive or comfortable walk into downtown.
