              About the owner: Born in South Africa and immigrated to the US when I was small I've never been able to shake my wanderlust. I love to travel for work and pleasure but I can't help but always return to Austin. I know how to find the secrets of a new city and I take a lot of pride in showing off Austin!

              Why the Owner Chose Travis Heights:
              This beautiful little Travis Heights house sits on a limestone hill overlooking the Colorado River and downtown Austin. The neighborhood is a little bohemian and has the friendliest neighbors around!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Walk or cycle to just about any attraction you could want from Austin. Half a mile to Congress Avenue and all it has to offer.
