The Space

*Note: This listing is an excellent option for anyone coming into town for temporary project/film work. Feel free to contact me and discuss flexible options for a longer stay.

My house is located in the charming historic neighborhood of Travis Heights, near bustling South Congress Ave. and 2 blocks away from Stacy Park, which offers a heated spring fed swimming pool, walking trails/green belt and a playground with toddler pool! Easy access to grocery, shopping, dining and entertainment districts. The Whip Inn is 3 blocks away.

There is a large kitchen and breakfast nook that opens out onto a huge deck and patio/grilling area, plus ample back yard. This house as a great "vibe" and many renters end up spending a lot of their time in Austin hanging out on the front porch or back patio.

This is an awesome rental for SXSW or ACL or F1, because it is in a quiet part of the neighborhood once you get home, but only minutes away from everywhere you want to be for party/music/race time. *Note that special nightly rates apply for these special events.

Secure wireless internet and cable. House is fully outfitted with top-of-the-line cooking utensils and a charcoal grill on the back patio, etc. Driveway parking available. Washer & Dryer in the house.

Queen beds in each bedroom (3 total) and a brand new, super comfy double sofa bed in the den, with additional double futon sleeper in the living room as well.

Near all of Austin's central bus lines and I encourage you to check out Car2Go.

I am a 3rd generation Austinite and I can put you right on to the best my hometown has to offer, all you have to do is tell me what you are interested in. You'll love it here!

Guest Access

You will have access to the entire house and all of it's features: kitchen, laundry, back yard patio, etc...

Interaction with Guests

I am always a phone call or text and 2 minutes away, but otherwise you won't see me during your stay after check-in.

The Neighborhood

Travis Heights is one of the best neighborhoods in Austin, with historic homes along oak-lined avenues. It is convenient, easy access from the Airport, and to Downtown, South Congress, South Austin, and East Austin entertainment districts.

Getting around

This house is walking distance to South Congress (8 blocks). It is walkable to Rainey Street, Downtown, and East Austin, but will take about 30 minutes. A better option would be biking for those areas, or Car-2-go. Uber and Lyft have also entered the Austin market as of this week, for ride share.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • A very good house in a pretty decent location. Can walk to SoCo and downtown in less than 45 minutes. Which is pretty good for SXSW.

    I only met Cameron briefly, and he was very kind.

    There was one caveat though. I got a text saying city employees might show up and ask me some questions about the rental. I don't know why, but I definitely would prefer not to have to deal with such issues.

  • Cameron's house was everything we hoped it would be for a very much anticipated family visit to Austin: it was home-y, uncluttered, spacious, and clean; with nice, modern appliances and a big backyard with a deck and table for eating outside on nice days/evenings. We were very at-home here. Cameron gave us a warm welcome and was available for anything we needed. We would happily return to this house on future visits. We LOVED the house AND the neighborhood!

  • Cam was a great host. Very accommodating and helpful.

    December 2013
  • Four of us guys traveled from England to Austin for the USGP.
    Cameron met us at his house, showed us around and ten minutes later he was giving us a ride to the local supermarket!
    The house is great and the four of us easily managed to create four separate bedrooms out of it. The location couldn't really be better. It's nice and quiet, so a good night's sleep is no problem. South Congress Avenue is only a ten minute walk away and the very awesome Whip Inn is less than that.
    Cameron was great - always at hand if we needed anything, but never intrusive.
    We had a great time in Austin and would recommend Cameron's house to anyone.

    November 2013
  • We had a wonderful family reunion at Cameron's home. There was plenty of room for all of us. Cameron was attentive to all of our needs, and prompt (as well as patient) with our questions. Austin is an amazing city and the location is great. Thank you Cameron!

    November 2013
  • Cameron is a sweet, laid -back man who made us feel very welcome. He was actually pleased that we threw a little BBQ party, and made full use of his great backyard entertaining area.

    We loved our stay, and felt very at home in his lovely house.

    October 2013
  • Our stay was lovely. There were six of us in all, four adults and two infants and we were completely comfortable in the space. Managing two nap schedules made it difficult to see very much of Austin but we all enjoyed the house.

    October 2013
  • Cameron's house is in the great Travis Heights neighborhood, accessible to all that is great about Austin for young and young at heart people, particularly those interested in being near UT. Very cozy house, perfect for our needs! Incredibly huge and comfortable back yard which our puppy adored, and lovely neighbors-cutest girl and family next door who love dogs and visited! Seriously, they made the trip-we felt so at home! Couldn't ask for anything more! Highly recommend!

    September 2013
  • This was our first rental from Airbnb, and we weren't sure how things would go, but finding and renting the property was so easy. The site and app were super user-friendly and there were no surprises.

    The house in Travis Heights was great! The quiet neighborhood was close to everything we needed and a short drive from anywhere we wanted to go. There was plenty of room for our party of 4, and we enjoyed the bottle of wine and bagels left for us by Cameron. The house was clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. Lots of backyard room, and we wouldn't hesitate to do this again. We highly recommend!!!

    September 2013
  • The house was great! Just as advertised. Excellent location, safe and quiet neighborhood, and very comfortable. Would certainly stay again!

I am a 3rd generation Austinite and I love my hometown. I grew up in central Austin only a few miles from where I live now, and I have been running all around this town since forever ago. I bought this house, in this specific neighborhood, because I love being in a historic area with oak-lined streets, yet 5 minutes away from everything you would want to do or see. I am a friendly, social person and I like meeting new people. The day my offer was accepted on the house, I ran a (website hidden) ad for a roommate and I have shared this house with amazing people for the last 6 years and made wonderful friends out of total strangers. If I am in town when you rent, and we click, I love to hang out and I will show you a local's tour of Austin. If I am busy/out of town, or you would rather figure it out on your own, that's OK too. Everything they say is true, Austin is awesome, so reach out and email me and we'll get you set up for a visit soon.
