Travis Heights Modern with Pool near Music Lane1303 1/2 Hillside Avenue , Austin, Texas 78704, United States
About this listing
This award-winning modern masterpiece sits in the quiet Travis Heights neighborhood, steps from famous South Congress. This unique home features a chef’s kitchen, skylights, high ceilings, concrete floors, a private backyard with outdoor dining space, a comfortable seating area and a pool. This is an incredible home for a large family or group of friends and perfectly accommodates a work from home lifestyle with multiple desks and spaces to work. Great wifi throughout!
The Alterstudio designed home is a substantial renovation and expansion of a 1927 bungalow paired with a new sculptural structure clad in black-stained cypress, connected via a glass entry bridge. This 2,250 sq ft home is split into two zones; one for living and socializing, and the other for relaxing and sleeping – and by entering in the middle, both sides appear in dialogue with each other. Elements from the original bungalow were reclaimed and used throughout the home.
The outdoor space includes a beautiful large table with seating for 10, an additional lounge area, and a heated pool protected by a lockable gate. The patio area is accented with Austin touches like edison lights hung from the trees and local plants. The front yard has a net swing hanging from a gorgeous live oak.
Kid and adult friendly entertainment options include board games, toys, kid micro scooters, 3 smart TVs, Sonos and an Xbox.
Also, please review the LONG-TERM STAY – ADDITIONAL FEES section below. Stays over 29 days are waived from paying the State and Local Hotel Tax. However, there are additional fees we need to collect for damage coverage and housekeeping.
LONG TERM STAY – ADDITIONAL FEES FOR STAYS OVER 29 days.
In compliance with our policies for long term stays, we need to collect a few additional fees from you before guaranteeing this reservation. Please see below and reply here with any questions. Your guest ambassador will reply shortly and be available to assist you where needed.
Trust & Safety Fee:
As part of our effort to help you relax and enjoy your stay, we have partnered with Safely.com to provide you with $1,500 of accidental coverage in place of a security deposit. A portion of the cost for this protection was included in your rental rate and fees and covers you for accidental damages during your stay. The Safely fee for nights over 30 days is $200, $50 of which was already collected. Please be on the lookout for a payment request or resolution request for the balance of $150 and ensure the balance gets paid and guarantee your reservation.
NOTE: The Trust and Safety Fee is refundable only if the reservation is canceled in writing at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the arrival date.
Additional Cleaning Fee:
We do require additional cleaning fees for guests staying longer than 3 weeks. Your Guest Ambassador will coordinate the cleaning schedule for a minimum of once every 2 weeks. You can request cleanings more frequently if desired. Additional cleaning charges will be sent using a payment request or resolution request, immediately following the cleaning.
Austin offers plenty of transportation options. Ride sharing, micro mobility, and mass transit are available everywhere. The airport is just 15 minutes away.
Prior to check-in, we will send you detailed directions to ensure a seamless arrival. Pack n Plays or High Chairs must be requested prior to arrival.
Parking enough for 1 car in the carport, and plenty of curbside parking in front of the house.
No parties please. Quietly entertaining a few friends is fine, but nothing larger. This is a dense neighborhood and surrounding houses are sensitive to noise.
HOTEL TAX COLLECTION: Both the City of Austin and the State of Texas requires all hotel and vacation rental hosts to collect hotel tax. We collect these two taxes within the booking transaction. The state requires 6% and the city requires 11%.
YOU ARE HELPING: A portion of the city hotel tax helps support Austin’s musicians and related businesses.
Stay Local Austin is your host during your stay and will be there to answer any questions you may have about the home or the surrounding area.
