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.

Cute little house - Perfect location.

We absolutely loved our stay at your house. It was just perfect for weekend away. We enjoyed walking to great shops and restaurants on South Congress. Plus, the house and neighborhood were so charming. We would definitely stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

Cottage is in a quiet neighborhood super close to restaurants & shops on S Congress. Very comfortable beds and loved having the two separate sitting areas. Could use newer pots since the nonstick were all scratched and needs more kitchen supplies but we ate out while visiting so was not a problem for us. The keruig coffee maker broke on our last morning and the manager sent us a gift card to Starbucks. We enjoyed our stay very much.mwould stay again.

Perfect little cottage

  • 4 of 5

House was just as pictured. Was super close to S. Congress and the river. Great having two seating areas. Only drawback was entrance door goes thru one of the bedrooms which made it awkward when we needed to go out while they were still sleeping.

Charming but worn

  • 3 of 5

This is a sweet house in a charming neighborhood within walking distance to the hottest neighborhood in Austin. I only wish it was cleaner and brighter. The house smelled dirty. The bathroom and kitchen floors weren't very clean, and there were footprints in the dust on some of the tables where someone was probably standing on the table to change a light bulb. And it's silly to have to enter through the front bedroom when there's another door, now locked and bolted, that enters directly into the living room. With better cleaning and fresher window coverings that aren't broken, this house would be a real gem.

Reviewer Comments:

Great Location and Size of this property. The beds were very comfortable and appreciated the fresh towels. Everything was in working order. It was however fairly dusty and the backyard/landscaping could use a little help so much so that we did not even go outside.

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.
