Travis Heights house description

Our Comfy Cozy Cabin is close to South Congress Culture and Cuisine. Near downtown, it’s a choice location to experience all that Austin has to offer.

Fitness, fun and food are all within walking distance. History, sports and live music are just blocks away.

Across the street is Big Stacy Park - three acres of nature and walking trails, playgrounds for the kids and even a spring-fed, heated swimming pool that's open year-round!

Big Stacy also includes tennis courts, a basketball court and a kiddie pool that's open in summer.

Back at the cabin, prepare a savory meal in our fully equipped kitchen - or barbeque outside on the grill! Mmmmmm.

Chill out in the backyard next to the the koi pond waterfall. Feeding pellets are provided. ) (((((('

Watch sports and movies on a 46'' HDTV with Time Warner Cable or AppleTV with Netflix! Wi-Fi works throughout the house.

Relax in the hot tub before turning in for a great night's sleep on a new Pillow-top King Size master bed. Zzzzzzzzz.


A ROMANTIC GETAWAY…: Looking for a peaceful hideaway in Austin? This comfy cozy cabin is a great place to spend quality time together. Share a glass of chardonnay by the tropical koi pond or melt away in the relaxing bubbles of the large outdoor Jacuzzi.

FAMILY FUN & FIESTAS…: Families enjoy our central location. Trips to the State Capitol, Memorial Stadium or Town Lake are just a few stop lights away.
Don't forget to come back and fire up the charcoal grill and layout a Texas size BBQ on one of our two outdoor picnic tables.

Home was built in the 1940s and renovated in 2007.

                        We stayed in this great cottage when we were in town for a UT football weekend. The location was perfect for getting to the campus as well as wonderful restaurants & shopping on South Congress. The neighborhood is a wonderful place for walks and picnicking. Although our favorite spot in the entire neighborhood was the back patio at the cottage. We enjoyed breakfast and evenings out by the pond. The house had everything we needed - comfortable beds, room to relax and visit, cookware to prepare breakfast for the patio and an ipod docking station and speakers to enjoy our music. Would highly recommend this great vacation cottage.

                        I stayed at the cabin this past weekend and I just cannot say enough good things about it. The house is just adorable, the hot tub is amazing and the koi pond is a great touch. The neighborhood is perfect, lined with amazing homes and the soothing sounds of crickets to sleep to at night. The cabin is very clean and has everything you need in it to make meals. The owner, Jac, was very very accommodating and very nice. I would highly recommend staying here. Also, its within a mile of the hip SoCo area, with shops and restaurants. We walked there one evening and it was a really nice walk.

                        I can't say enough wonderful things about the Casita! We picked this house because of the location and all of the wonderful amenities. The home delivered more than that, it offered a place to make memories for us and our extended family. We enjoyed walks to SoCo restaurants and shops, swimming in Stacey pool for free, playing in the park and creek and relaxing in the hottub for the first few days. Then we had a nice size family gathering of relatives. We smoked a large brisket in the smoker and various other meats on the gas grill. It was very comfortable for our party and everyone loved the house! I can't wait to go back to Austin and stay here again! The communication with the owners was flawless as well. Kudos to Jac and Jeff for making us feel welcome!

                        The description of this charming place was good but fell short of how quaint it was. We lived in Austin years ago and if you ever wanted to know what Austin neighborhoods were like before it became the mecca it is today, stay in this wonderful place. It is small yet roomy with fabulous Teas decor that adds to its cabin-like interior. It was quiet which we were hoping for. The huge live oak tree stretches its limbs in front of the porch overlooking a xeroscaped front. We walked a short block or two to the neighborhood pool to cool off and relax. One thing to keep in mind is this place is not for the bad knees. It is quite the climb to the front door but that is part of the attractiveness of the experience. We had a few minor questions and they were answered immediately. Can't say enough good things about it - you'll just have to rent it fto find out or yourself. We'll be back for sure.

                        We have just returned from a fabulous vacation in Austin. We chose the Cozy Cabin due to it's location and facilities and were not dissapointed! The cabin is very clean, homely and comfortable so we settled in very quickly after our long flight. The owner has thought of every amenity and responded promptly to any queries we have both in the run up to and during out trip. We loved the hot tub and our two children looked forward to feeding the fish every other day. Right accross the street is an outdoor heated pool,with lifeguards and changing failities, which we we took full advantage of. The cool area of SoCo with it's 50s style and restaurants to suit all tastes, retro stores, vintage clothing shops and a great trailer food park was 10 minutes walk away through leafy quiet streets and Stacy Park. Although the cabin is really close to the city centre, you feel like you are in the middle of the country as it is a very green and leafy neighbourhood with squirrels aplenty. Zilker Park is a 5 - 10 minute drive away and you can walk for hours turtle and bird stopping as well as cycle and kayak. Barton Springs is a fabulous amenity and a great place to cool down in the summer heat. We cannot recommend the cozy cabin highly enough and hope to return in the not too distant future.

                        Our family of four spent nine days in Austin this summer for a volleyball tournament and couldn't have asked for better accommodations. This two-bedroom house is a charming renovation that includes all the amenities you could want, is close to so many cool Austin restaurants, shops and trailers on SoCo and the surrounding areas and is a very short walk to the warm, spring-fed outdoor pool at Big Stacy park. Everything at the house was as wonderful as described, it is well maintained and clean and there is even a large bonus room with a six-person dining table and window views of the quaint backyard. You will love this place. P.S. We do suggest parking out front on the street since the driveway is pretty steep...but other than that, this place is a wonderful retreat.

                        We found the cabin to truly be cozy and comfortable. It is in a great loation to access all of Austin's attractions and a short ride to Jo's for morning coffee. The house was just the right fit for us. The beds were very comfortable and the air conditioning is super. Nice quiet and safe neighbrhood feel. Would definetly come again. The owners were great to deal with, really responsive and helpful. Highly recommended!

                        My family and I had a wonderful time at your cozy cabin. This was our first visit to Austin and we found the cabin was perfect for our needs. We loved the surroundings! Everything was very clean when we arrived. We had all the amenities to make our stay comfortable. The jacuzzi was a real plus..we used it in the morning and at night! The coi pond was a hit with my younger daughter who also found a toad in it! She loved the backyard. The location was close to all to the cool shops/restaurants on South Congress but tucked in the hills so we didn't feel like we were too close to the action. Thanks again and we hope to use your cabin again in the near future.
