Location

Austin, Texas, United States

Travis Heights is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Austin and is tucked under expansive Live Oak trees that are hundreds of years old! It's about 2 miles to the Capitol and since we're south of the river (Lady Bird Lake), we're Austin eclectic! Tiny House may be tucked away in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, but it's an easy walk to the best of South Congress (SoCo), the Congress St. bats, and is also close to downtown and East-side restaurants, bars and clubs. The Whip-in, a close walk, is an eclectic restaurant, bar and live music venue whose origins were a simple corner store. Want some quiet time? Take a walk through the neighborhood to Big Stacy Park, or swim in Big Stacy Pool- open all year round! Travis Heights has the best of everything!

I moved to Austin from San Francisco, sight unseen, 25 years ago and we've grown up together. I rented, then bought, my current home and have been here ever since! My house has been the hub of many gatherings and I'm a natural host- just ask my friends! I'm active and am always up for adventure around town, out of town and around the world. I enjoy traveling, have lived abroad and logged many global miles, but it’s always nice to come home to enjoy all that Austin has to offer: music, dancing, natural springs, or enjoying the hike and bike trail along Lady Bird Lake. I've been in the hospitality business for several years as a travel agent, bartender, catering and event coordinator, and would love to show you why Austin is the place to be!
