Perks for the Parents

A 15-minute drive from Lake Travis, crickets chirp and owls hoot in the night by this 4-bedroom family home, which includes a pool and beautifully designed spaces. Especially well set up for cooking, the house has a chef’s kitchen complete with oversized farm table for all of your farm-to-table meals; to complete the scene, a CSA farm bushel can be delivered prior to arrival, a private chef can be arranged and groceries can be pre-ordered and delivered. Despite being just 5 minutes to downtown, the quarter acre lot is peaceful and serene and it feels like you are in the country.

Why Kids Love it

Kids love the property because of the pool. There are also many games and outdoor activities ready to go. There is an amazing park just 2 blocks away and you are only half a mile to the famous Lady Bird Lake complete with hiking and biking trail. The hosts can offer many creature comforts such as cribs and high chairs. There is a built-in barbecue for summer dining, and a 15-ft home theater DVD projector for family movie nights. It’s in a great location for enjoying Austin’s annual events - including ACL Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Formula F1 and SXSW.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 1 week. Note that the pool is gated. The property has a built-in outdoor bbq, xeriscape landscaping, indoor wood burning fireplace, central air conditioning and heat, sleep in loft and rain shower. The kitchen has state of the art appliances including all of the dishes and utensils you need. There is a portable Bose ipod dock, plus internet and cable TV throughout. Car rental is useful but not essential in this central location, ¾ mile from downtown. There is driveway parking for 2 cars.

About the Location

The residence is centrally located in the Historic Travis Heights neighborhood. It is just 2 blocks from the hip South Congress area, and a stone's throw from downtown Austin’s cafés, wine bars, museums, antique shops, bakeries, theaters, galleries, farmers' market, rivers, springs, parks and library. The house is within a 15 minute drive of Lake Travis and is in a good location for exploring Central Texas and the Hill Country's lakes, rivers and more. It is a 20-minute drive from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

Accommodation Details

This property includes a garden with barbecue and pool and a casita/pool house with 1 bedroom with queensize bed and 2 day beds, and 1 bathroom plus a private outdoor shower. The main house has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen, screened-in porch, lounge and bathrooms with shower and tub options. Bedrooms include 1 with kingsize bed, 1 with twin bed and 1 with 2 twin beds. Additional beds may be available, including a single sofa bed.

Style Notes

Modern family. The main house was built in 1895 and has over 2,000 sq ft of space for families to enjoy, with 12’ ceilings and modern art throughout. Lounge on the screened in porch, outside in the peaceful garden or inside this beautiful home. The main living space is open, warm and colorful, and includes pot plants and pop art. We love the well chosen modern furniture, the tree-lined back yard and the well-equipped family kitchen.

Keep Austin Weird

This historic south Austin neighborhood is quaint, charming and a little bit unconventional. Two city parks offer plenty of opportunity to play, while Lady Bird Lake at the top of the district is a great place for hiking, biking, bat-watching and paddleboard yoga. Keep Austin Weird, y’all...
