VRBO Bear stayed here:
I just got back from another great weekend in Austin – I love that city, there’s always so much fun to be had! The Green Door is in Travis Heights, a charming, quiet, centrally-located neighborhood about 8 blocks from funky SoCo – a perfect location to experience the first fruits of Austin. The home has attractive curb appeal with a wrap around front porch and two comfortable chairs to relax in and enjoy the view amidst huge historic oak trees.
This contemporary home has an open floor plan with new furnishing throughout. The comfortable modern couch in the living room seats 4 adults easily (the oversized, long hair pillow was my favorite). Cool concrete floors throughout the home keep the temperatures pleasant during the hot summer. I enjoyed watching the NBA Finals on the HD flat screen TV.
The open kitchen has clean, crisp white counters and is well equipped with all new appliances, plenty of glassware, dishes, pots and pans, and coffee maker – all the necessary items to prepare a home cooked meal. The refrigerator was pre-stocked for me with a six-pack of assorted local beers and the fresh flowers were a great touch. Right outside the sliding kitchen door was the gas barbeque, perfect for grilling fresh Salmon I bought from the Whole Foods Global Headquarters just 2.5 miles away. You can use one of the classic cruiser bikes that comes with the rental!
The shower/tub has a rain head faucet – I loved that. The towels are new and soft – probably thanks to my distant relative, The Snuggle Bear. Both beds were very comfortable with great pillows. The walk-in master closet is spacious and could easily double as a babies sleeping room; plenty of wooden hangers are available in both closets.
The Green Door is hands-down a regular favorite of mine to recommend for a weekend or week-long stay for one to two couples, or a small family. The owners have thought of every detail. They even went above and beyond to make sure I enjoyed my stay and even before my visit they were attentive and easy to contact during the reservation process. They also provided maps & local magazines, notebooks with places of interests, and suggestions for fun activities during my stay, like Esther’s Follies on 6th St. - hilarious!! This home has all the conveniences of a home-away-from-home, but with thoughtful personal touches to make it a great vacation spot.

Why South River City, Austin, TX, USA:
The eclectic, walking-neighborhood, combined with the classic mid-century lines of the home had us hooked! The proximity to downtown and South Congress is just one of the area's attractions. The neighborhood has gently rolling hills offering views of downtown, is filled with gorgeous live oak trees, and has many recreation opportunities.
