VRBO Bear stayed here:
I just spent an amazing weekend getaway at this modern, updated townhome, known as “The Orange Door.” It’s located in the friendly Travis Heights neighborhood of Austin, Texas. This ‘pet friendly’ townhome has all the comforts of home – with even better décor and furniture! The kitchen was full of amenities any bear could want (especially a bear who likes coffee) and each bed was as comfy as could be.
The neighborhood is friendly and serene and just a short walk to South Congress (aka SoCo) which is a great place to grab a delicious bite, explore cool and funky shops, get a drink or hear some great live music. Also within walking distance is Stacy Park, where the dog walked me every morning. There is also a spring fed pool in this park – perfect for cooling off from the hot Austin summers.
The Orange Door is the perfect place to stay when traveling to Austin. It is centrally located and has all the amenities of home.
