Travis Heights house description

The best part about the house is the *old* Austin feel that you get (a rarity nowadays). The Verde Camp houses date back to the 1930's and share a half acre of land, and have recently been remodeled with all the modern conveniences.

The birds chirp in the morning, the squirrels dance in the shady canopy from a 250 year-old oak trees, church bells can be heard in the distance at noon. It's a pretty nice spot year round.

However, this area is HAPPENING. Not 3 blocks away is what NPR recently called 'the coolest street in America'. Vinyl records, the best thrift shops, and uniquely Austin stores, restaurants, coffee, and clubs. You can even get a straight razor shave. Perhaps a folk art galleries or a vintage sign is something you need..

Lots of veggie options, live music, clubs, Art houses, theater. Walk/bike to Lady Bird Lake (Town Lake) and get some exercise. Hit downtown, 6th Street, UT Longhorn games, kayaking/canoeing, and you KNOW you want some barbecue and a beer. It's all just minutes away.

Catch the bus or rent a scooter to almost anywhere. Or, hey.. just chill. Watch cables/dvds on the 42' flat screen. Use the WiFi to surf the web. Get some work done. Rest, relax, get a massage, take a walk, order some food. Whatever. Once you stay, I know you'll come back.

- Noise. Be respectful. We have a No Noise Policy that is strictly enforced after 10 PM. Loud or obnoxious behavior will not be tolerated.
- The neighborhood restrictions prohibit campers, motor homes and any type of trailer being parked in the neighborhoods at any time.
- No Smoking. Smoking is not allowed at this property.

We allow well behaved pets with deposits.
