Property Details

We realize that folks travel from all over the world to com visit Austin, and we wanted to provide a theme that might just make you feel right at home.

This lovely two bedroom, one bath duplex features a hot tub, and lots of patio space to enjoy the weather. Zilker Park is just about 2 miles away, and downtown is just 3 miles.

The larger bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom has a queen. There is a fold-down sofa bed in the living room if you need more room!

The hot tub is private and for your use only. It's really nice especially when it's cold out 🙂

The kitchen is fully furnished and ready to cook. Stove is electric, FYI. There are plenty of pots and pans (new as of April 2016), basic spices, oils and we also provide organic coffee beans, grinder, filters, creamer and sugar.

Two new sofa chairs in the living room are super comfy!

We call this property The Traveler because we realize that folks travel from all over the world to com visit Austin, and we wanted to provide a theme that might just make you feel right at home. 

This lovely two bedroom, one bath duplex features a king bed, queen bed, private hot tub, and lots of patio space to enjoy the weather. Zilker Park is just about a mile and a half or so away, and downtown is just 3 miles.

NOTE: This property is next door to two similar units so if you have a larger group we have plenty of room available! Just ask! 

Walk to the Barton Creek Greenbelt, there's a neighborhood entrance just around the block! 


Getting downtown with Uber or Lyft is the easiest way to do it - since parking is a bummer down there. It's roughly $10-15 fare. 

We are located just one block off of South Lamar so there's tons of wonderful restaurants, juice bars, taco houses, bars, book shops, and even a gallery with the largest collection of original Dr Seuss drawings - all within a couple of blocks!

We have GOOGLER FIBER wifi and TV!

Parking is all done on the curb right by the front door. It's not a busy street so there's always easy free parking!

The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you'd need to cook up a feast. The stove is electric. We also provide a coffee basket for you with organic Ruta Maya beans, grinder, filters, creamer and sugar. 
This property has 1 King(s), 1 Queen(s), 1 Pull Out Sofa(s).

Guest Reviews

Great Spot by Dan 12/21/2016
Great Spot. Awesome locations. Hot tub on the deck is perfect. Great cable TV and super comfy bed. Clean and fully equipped and Jay is an outstanding host. Couldn't ask for more.
Great Little Austin Pad by MTBGirl 10/23/2013
Great Little Austin Pad
Great little half duplex in Austin in a very central location. This place had everything we needed, full size washer & dryer and a little outdoor patio area with a BBQ grill (which we used quite a bit) and hot tub and king size bed which was very comfy. The bathroom and kitchen were well stocked with essentials and tons of towels, also detergent for the laundry which was great and often isn't provided- so a lot of thoughtful extra touches. The owner (Jay) was really responsive when we mentioned that the dining room light bulb had gone and came over to fix it during our stay. This isn't a brand new house, as it appears to be in an established older part of Austin, so do not expect a state of the art home, but it was really clean and comfortable and the wifi was great, easy to access and seemed to have a good speed at all times. Owners also have a lot of information in a binder about the area and local restaurants and full cable- so all the comforts of home- highly recommended.
We got the Traveler as a place to stay for a bachelorette party. by Happy gals 03/22/2013
We got the Traveler as a place to stay for a bachelorette party. We specifically wanted this one due to it having a hot tub. I was hosting so I coordinated all the arrangements. I worked directly with Jay, but sometimes had to reach out to Lauren. Both were extremely professional and polite. I was very pleased with how timely my questions were answered and just overall impressed with the whole process. Jay even allowed me to check in early to decorate even though the grounds needed minor maintenance. I assured him I didn't mind working around what they were doing so he agreed to allow the early check in. The house offered all the comforts of home, including basic kitchen cooking/eating items to hand soap and lotion in the bathroom. If I say anything negative about the house, is the drive way and walking to the front door is on a steep hill, but you're in hill country so what can you do. I love how close everything was to the Traveler. 7 mins and we're downtown. 3 mins and we're at the highway. 2 blocks away from several restaurants and one block from the most honk tonk country bars/dance hall I've ever been to (The Broken Spoke). LOVE LOVE LOVE this house. I expect to do business again with Vacation Cake (Jay). Never again will I stay in a hotel while traveling to Austin!! Thank you again so much!!
