About Melanie

This charming little house is a labor of love for me. I'm a designer and wanted to remodel a 1920's Austin bungalow.

Why Melanie chose Greater South River City

Travis Hts is one of the most charming and oldest cultural districts in Austin in the best location near trendy SOCO for walking to the best resteraunts, shops, bars, live music, boutique hotels and coffee shops.

What makes this house unique

Minutes to downtown and the rest of that Austin has to offer is all a quick drive, bike or uber away. It has the style of a boutique hotel in your own personal pied de terre with a yard. If you need any info on shops , groceries , bars, music , outdoor exploring museums etc ...I'm happy to point you in the right direction to make your Austin experience special.

Amazing time and Place South Congress

  • 5 of 5

Melanie and her home were fantastic. The house looks even better in person then it did in the photos. Melanie had the whole check-in process streamlined and easy. The house had everything that you could need and the beds were extremely comfortable. We will definitely be back in Austin and staying at Melanie's house again.

Thank you so much for the hospitality.
