Designated a historic landmark by the City of Austin, the c.a. 1937 Castle on the Hill is an excellent example of Moorish-influenced Mediterranean Revival architecture. An arcaded porch with steel framed casement windows extends along the front of the house; a smaller porch of identical design is located at the back. The property is also equipped with first-class, luxury amenities such as Viking appliances, central heat & air, security system and high speed internet access.
Located three blocks from the popular entertainment district of South Congress Avenue (SoCo) and one block from Stacy Park, the Castle on the Hill is perfectly situated to meet all your needs! Please visit our Virtual Tour; the link is below.
The Castle on the Hill - behind the scenes: 'The John House,' or more commonly known by the local residents as 'The Castle on the Hill' was featured by the historic preservation committee for the Travis Heights Neighborhood Association for exemplifying the rich, historic architecture of South Austin.
The owner's residence is located in the historic stone cottage south of the main house. Owners are available to provide guests with suggestions on restaurant options, live music venues and much more! We are a perfect home for families and small groups. We do not allow for events other than overnight accommodations.
We stayed in this incredible home with another couple and really enjoyed our time! Great location. Amazing home. Lovely neighborhood. There was plenty of space to unwind in the upstairs living space or the lower level. Enough parking space and extraordinary amenities. The owners were always available to answer questions and to help in any way they could. We'd really love to go back and would highly recommend!
The Castle is wonderful and located in a great place, close to main attractions and in a peaceful neighborhood at the same time, a couple blocks from South Congress, a around the corner from a park. We even walked to downtown. You can also take an Uber that takes less than 5 min.
Restaurants and coffee shops nearby are a great start of the day.
Ian and Angela provide not only their incredible home but a lot of information. At the home you´ll find various guides and tours suggestions.
As hosts they were most helpful, and made the booking process easy.
My gratitude and best wishes!
The Castle on the Hill is a perfect getaway house. It is beautifully appointed with every amenity anyone could want - from handsome comfortable furniture, to a fully equipped kitchen. We have been to the house twice and it truly feels like a home away from home. The location is perfect - right in Soco but nestled in the cute neighborhood of Travis Heights - and in walking distance to everything. I enthusiastically endorse this property! Enjoy!
I have to agree with all the other reviews...EVERYTHING about the place was first class. The location, the amenities, the rooms, everything! The owners, Ian and Anglea, are beyond accommodating and responsive. The house experience was even better than the Austin experience...and that's saying a lot for this incredible city. This is the place!!
Our group of five stayed at this beautiful home for three nights. We were blown away by the beauty and location. I cant stress enough how amazing Angela and Ian were. I highly recommend this home!
Our family of 6 spent almost one week in this incredible home. The experience was exactly what we had hoped for. We especially liked having a full kitchen where we could make meals at home as one of my children has some special dietary needs. The home is very grand and a real historic and iconic home in the neighborhood.
The property was very elegant and well maintained. The furniture and amenities were exceptional. The location is really central and so many of the places on our to see in South Congress -- and all were reachable by foot. The neighborhood is safe and offers plenty to do, day or night. I can recommend this place, hands down. Thanks for a great stay!
South Congress Avenue, better known as SoCo, is the vibrant arts and entertainment district south of the river. Swing dance at the famous Continental Club or eat some of the best Mexian food in town at Guerros Taco Bar, its all just a stone's throw away from one of the most unique residences in all of Austin -- The Castle on the Hill. Walk one block in the other direction and enter Stacy Park, designed with a public spring fed lap pool on one side and children’s spring fed wading pool and playground on the other. Walking trails weave throughout and lead toward the famous Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail where you will find access to all the outdoor activities imaginable, including canoeing, sculling, kayaing, jogging, and mountain biking. Whether your search involves a raucus night of live music, an outdoor exploration of Austin or just a quiet evening on the veranda, the Castle on the Hill provides a tranquil retreat nestled in the heart of it all.
