                          Welcome to 78704! This property, which we call The Traveler, is located in the heart of the most famous zip code in Austin. Dozens of fantastic restaurants, bars, parks, trails, ice cream shops, etc are within just a few blocks. Downtown Austin is only about 2.5 miles away.

                          Just a few blocks down the road you have a neighborhood entrance to The Barton Creek Greenbelt...which is like the central nervous system for exploring Austin. You can hike down to Zilker Park without ever seeing a striped road.

                          About: This property is owned by Brett Egge and Jay Reynolds. Jay is a life-long Austinite and co-owner of VacationCake Rentals (who manages the property). Brett caddies full time on the Champions Tour. Golf is in our blood so if you're planning to bring your clubs, definitely let us know!

                          Why Private Homes:
                          We bought this property because we love the neighborhood. We love being close to The Greenbelt, Kerbey Lane Cafe, downtown Austin, and Zilker Park.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          You can walk around the corner, into a neighborhood Greenbelt entrance and feel like you're out in the middle of nowhere. It's beautiful out there and an amazing way to escape into nature. Also, being so close to downtown, but in IN downtown has it's serious benefits.
