Recent Travis Heights reviews

  • Most perfect place to get away!

    "This property is exactly as presented. You can tell the owner takes great pride in her property. Everything was clean and well supplied. The beds are really comfortable and the electronics are top notch. But the best part is the zen like garden area around the pool. It was like relaxing in a oasis in the middle of the city. A great way to start the day or to wind down after a busy one. Location was perfect and walking distance to SoCo or even to downtown. Highly recommend. I will stay here again next time I am in Austin."

  • Simple studio with everything we needed

    "This basement studio looking out into a yard with old trees has all the basics, including internet, kitchen with a dishwasher and access to a washer and dryer. My husband and I spent 2 weeks here and were very comfortable."

  • Highly Recommend!

    "Cute, comfortable bungalow in a quiet neighborhood, convenient to SOCO and downtown. Lovely original artwork thoughout the house. The owner left plenty of bottled water in the refrigerator which was greatly appreciated. The only suggestion I have for improvement is to provide a few more chairs outside in the back yard."

  • Such a CHARMING house and great location!!

    "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."

Travis Heights Travel Tips

See Hip Hotspots While Staying at Travis Heights Vacation Homes

Historic Travis Heights, located in south Austin, Texas, is a desirable neighborhood with a mix of hip apartments, small family homes and large mansions. There is also a large selection of Travis Heights vacation homes. The neighborhood was created in 1913 as an exclusive area for the wealthy. Now, it's one of the most sought after locales, thanks in part to its proximity to Downtown Austin and to major freeways. It is also close to South Congress Avenue, referred to as SoCo. This is an area of Austin known for its trendy cafes and unique shopping. When visiting the area, be sure to choose Travis Heights lodging that puts you near the SoCo area.

Parks Offer Activities for Children and Adults

The area's name comes from the topography of the land. The landscapes rise and fall, giving some residents excellent views of Downtown Austin and others peaceful views of wooded hollows. Big Stacy Park and Little Stacy Park also boast the same landscape, with acres of rolling woods for children to play. Adults can enjoy the offerings at both parks as well. Jog around the parks or cycle through the natural settings. Those with pets can enjoy Norwood Estate Park, a dog-friendly park where many locals gather on weeknights and weekends.

Enjoy the Area's Historical Architecture

The architecture in Travis Heights is simply stunning. You can find many carriage houses with detached garages throughout the neighborhood. Many of these garages have been turned into highly sought after apartments as well as Travis Heights lodging for tourists visiting the area. You will also find bungalow-style homes that were popular during the area's huge development boom in the 1920s. Some of these homes have also been turned into Travis Heights vacation homes.
