Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Our 2BR house, in historical Travis Heights, is the perfect Austin retreat with a unique contemporary charm. Our living room is bright and cheerful with large windows and hardwood floors throughout the main living space. Our living room has a flat screen TV and entertainment center. The living room connects to the dining room, followed by the kitchen area. This main space is perfect for entertaining friends and family, with easy flow between rooms. Our renovated kitchen comes fully-equipped with all new appliances, cookware, and fixtures. Off the side of the kitchen we have a distinctive sun room with plush couches; this is a tranquil space to enjoy your morning cup of coffee and read the paper. Our two bedrooms both come with queen size Tempurpedic beds, original hard wood floors, and impeccable bedding. The shared bathroom is one of a kind with a rare claw-foot bathtub and southern comfort style. Our house has all the comforts of home with authentic Austin style.

Travis Heights is a historic Austin Neighborhood in south downtown. The main attraction of this neighborhood is the proximity to South Congress Avenue. South Congress is full of hip cafes and stores, and attracts many tourists and young professionals from all over the world. South Congress Avenue is an easy four block stroll away or you can walk two blocks to East Riverside Drive; either way, you have access to all the best restaurants, bars and shopping that Austin has to offer. 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. To get to downtown Austin is just as easy: call Uber, a cab, or hop in your car; either way you are just a short three minute drive/ride away.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was clean and woked well for us, but the lack of some basic household and kitchen amenities was noticeable. For instance, we had to buy a dust pan, aluminum foil, and saran wrap. There was a little salt but no pepper, splenda but no sugar. The trash and recycle bins had not been emptied in some time. Overall, the stay was good, but if I did it again I would come better equipped than I usually plan on for Home Away.

Owner's Response: Hello Charles, We appreciate you taking the time to leave this review. We're glad to hear your overall experience was good, but are sorry for the inconveniences you mentioned. We stock each home with what is called a "starter supply" of basic items. It is not designed to be an unlimited supply but, rather, to get a typical reservation through a weekend or get folks started so that they can enjoy their arrival days, take inventory, and pick up whatever else is needed to get them through their trip as needed. Prior to each stay, we stock dish soap, laundry detergent, a roll of paper towels, toilet paper, a dish brush to wash dishes, a few trash bags, dishwasher detergent, bar soap, and the standard bathroom amenities you might find in a hotel. Thanks again for your feedback! -The TurnKey VR Team

Cute, roomy cottage, super clean.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, older home in the Travis Heights neighborhood. Lovely wood and claw foot tub. Well maintained and close to SoCo and downtown. As we were there during an extremely cold spell for Austin, it was tough to stay warm anywhere, but the extra blankets provided helped! Would have liked to have had Netflix or something other than just cable channels, however.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

This rental is in an excellent location, it's easy to bike into downtown from here (we brought our own bikes). We really enjoyed relaxing on the front porch, and the bed in the back bedroom was really comfortable. Inside, the house is pretty basic, almost spare, and I have stayed in other rentals that provided a few more amenities, especially for the price. There were 2 single K-cups provided, and some basic travel-size toiletry products in the bathroom. Adding things like tea, some creamer and sweetener packets, and a Brita jug for filtered water goes a long way in making a rental feel homier. Basic antenna tv service, which wasn't something worth calling in and complaining about, but most rentals usually offer cable or satellite. Its a great choice if you won't be home much, but amenities felt lacking. We also counted about 7 big sticky mouse traps throughout the house, and I'm glad we didn't wake up to find mice stuck to them!

Owner's Response: Hi Randi, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and share your experience. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We appreciate your feedback in regards to the Brita pitcher and cable, and will make sure to pass your comments along to the homeowner. In regards to tea, creamer and sweeteners, TurnKey does not stock any food-related items in our homes in order to prevent guests from consuming anything that has either been contaminated or has spoiled. Please be assured that we will also be looking into the mousetraps at the home to ensure this is addressed. By the way, you were perfect guests, and we appreciate you taking care of our place as if it were your own. Please come stay again anytime! -The TurnKey VR Team

Reviewer Comments:

The property is 3 blocks from South Congress Avenue. We walked down there for dinner 2 nights and drove down the third evening. Parking was not an issue. There was very little noise in the neighborhood. We had a couple of issues that the rental company dealt with quickly (Keurig and a mouse). We enjoyed our stay there. FYI, the grill in the backyard is very small but understandable since it is a rental home.

Map

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.
