Owner - Michelle Keahey purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Owner - Michelle Keahey chose Travis Heights
The location is the best Austin has to offer for those that want to be walking distance to all of the arts and entertainment, dining and shopping, while being able to retreat in the privacy of an urban oasis.
What makes this Cottage unique
In addition to the vibrant Soco area there are always festivals, concerts and marathons in the immediate location. ACL music festival and SXSW are within 5 to 10 minutes away. Hike and bike trails, kayaking and sculling or paddling on Lady Bird Lake, and bat watching on South Congress bridge are also just blocks away. Visit the State Capital, the museums, the second street shopping district. Enjoy the nightlife in the warehouse and sixth street districts. Catch a performance at the new Long Center for Performing Arts. Swim in our beloved spring fed pools - Stacy pool located in Travis Heights, Deep Eddy and Barton Springs.

Michelle was the perfect hostess. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable. The location is perfect. It is within walking distance from SoCo and downtown Austin. Ubers are very affordable should you choose that route.
Awesome place. The landlord, Michelle, was wonderful. Such a relaxing retreat. If I ever come back to Austin, I'm staying here.
Beautiful property in the heart of Austin
We enjoyed the beautiful patio and the lovely space right in the heart of the action of Austin! Every detail was attended to and we had all that we needed for a relaxing stay.
Enjoyed the experience, good location.
Highly recommend. Clean, true to posting, beautiful outdoor space, communicative and friendly host.
Could not have asked for a better experience!
Michelle’s guest house was the perfect spot for our girls weekend. She was an accommodating host, allowing us to check in a little early and having everything we could possibly need available in the house. The space was cozy for 4 people - I definitely don’t think it can hold any more than that.
The backyard was to die for - we ended up spending more time there than out some days! Michelle was great about giving us full reign of the space - we saw her very few times after we checked in.
The location is awesome; a short walk to South Congress, and about a 25 min walk/7 min car ride to downtown, although you feel completely separated from the city on the quiet side street the house is on.
Ultimately, we could not have had a better experience, and we are already planning our return.
This downtown property is two blocks from S. Congress or (SoCo) just behind the St. Cecilia Hotel. Walk to shopping, restaurants and live music. It's also just a half mile to downtown, 6th street and the Convention Center where a lot of the SXSW activities are located. The Long Center for performing arts is also walkable by less than 10 minutes. If you like to walk or jog you can reach the hike and bike trail or 'Lady Bird Lake' in just 5 minutes. Barton Springs swimming pool is a 10 minute drive, well worth it even if you don't want to swim! Across from the spring is Zilker Park where the famous Austin City Limits (ACL) music festival is located. There is plenty to do within walking distance or a short cab ride to all the popular spots in Austin from this property.
Other Activities: Boating, Miniature Golf, Shopping, Kayaking, Health/Beauty Spa
Golf: Lions Municiple Golf Course is approximately 5 miles away and is a public golf course.
