Travis Heights house description

Welcome to Casa Vinita!

We are officially licensed by the city of Austin to operate our home as a short term rental.

This house was built in 1926, in historic Travis Heights. It still has its old-world charm, even though we have modernized it for comfortable living. The home is equipped with central air-conditioning and heat, kitchen appliances including refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, gas stove/oven, and microwave. The one full bathroom has a claw-foot tub with shower - so take care in climbing in and out!

Sitting areas have been furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs, tables, and an HD television. Both bedrooms include queen-sized beds with Tempurpedic mattresses. There is a dining room and breakfast bar, as well as a lounge near the kitchen for additional space and relaxation. A washer and dryer are present for your use. Internet access via WiFi is also included.

This stand-alone bungalow has a covered front porch, driveway for parking, plenty of street parking, as well as fenced-in backyard.

This rental property is located in Travis Heights, in the heart of the 78704 zip code. Though located on a quiet street, it is only a few blocks from the hubbub of South Congress, and has easy access by foot or short drive to downtown Austin, the UT campus, Zilker Park, and Lady Bird Lake.

Come and stay to enjoy all that Austin has to offer - much within walking distance - including SXSW, ACL, cheering on the Longhorns, conventions in downtown, etc. Or relax with leisurely hikes around Town Lake or Zilker Park, as well as the miles of nature trails nearby.

We hope to do everything we can to make your visit as enjoyable and carefree as possible.

Casa Vinita bears my name, because of the pride with which I offer this cottage to our guests. As such, I ask that you take care of my home, should you honor us with your stay.

Please note: No pets. No smoking.

Children are welcome.

                              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.
