Amazing Travis Heights beauty in the hippest part of Austin. Expansive house, sleeps 4 in beds and 2 additional guests (couch/twin bed in living room plus queen air bed). Chic, immaculate and spacious two bedroom house - newly furnished, hardwood floors, beautifully decorated, lots of windows to view large oak trees and outdoor habitat. Extremely private, yet a few minutes walk to the best shopping and dining Austin has to offer. This private upgraded house offers top of the line, brand new King and Queen beds with luxurious linens in separate expansive bedrooms. Includes beautiful outdoor living with wood deck, outdoor table that seats 6, fire pit, and his-n-hers beachcomber bicycles.

About Lisa Rom

Hi there,

This is the best neighborhood in Austin and very near downtown! The night life, outdoor activities, fun people and amazing weather are just some of the reasons I love this place. It's living in a beautiful tree lined neighborhood but being able to walk to cool restaurants and the best live music venue in all of Austin. Not to mention a stone's throw to downtown. I hope you learn to love Austin as much as I do.

Lisa Rom purchased this house in 2012

Why Lisa Rom chose Austin

The pictures speak for themselves. This house is definitely a gem in the prestigious Travis Heights neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

The house is spacious, has big beautiful bedrooms, modern decor and has a great old vibe but is kept immaculately clean and presented with modern hip furnishings. The original beauty of the home has been maintained throughout. I also have bikes available for enjoying the fun outdoor lifestyle that locals can't get enough of.

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The house was exactly as advertised - a traditional bungalow that was remodeled in all the right places! The kitchen was great...and the backyard and front porches were great retreats. Plus, it is in a lovely neighborhood that is great for walking - and a nice easy walk to shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, etc.! Lisa was a great host - and source of info. We highly recommend this house - and would stay here again on a future trip to Austin.

5 Star Hotels Can't Touch This Place!

  • 5 of 5

This should sum it up: We live in a home with 3 times the square footage, with a pool/jaccuzi , on a lake, but we have missed Lisa's place since we came home! Amazing!

Very nice house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time east of Congress, and we loved the area. The house is quiet and well-equipped, with a good kitchen, two large bedrooms and ample living space. The cottage, which has been beautifully done, gives added flexibility.

Cute home, lots of space, nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I visited Austin with a friend for a long weekend. We are old friends who live in different parts of the country and decided to meet in this cute town. This home was perfect for the two of us and can hold more! We each had our own bedrooms with nice comfortable beds. The home was clean and had everything we could have needed. The kitchen is newly remodeled and very nice. Location is one of the most important things when you are on vacation and the location of this place was good. It was about a 20 minute to S. Congress if you wanted to grab dinner or a drink. We did have a car and I would recommend it in Austin. It was nice to have to drive around for meals, Barton Springs, shopping trips on 2nd, etc.

Overall this property was super clean, cute, lots of space for a 2 bedroom, cute cottage in back if you have more guests, great kitchen, nice safe neighborhood, etc. Gave it 5 stars!
