These 5 homes managed by TurnKey Vacation Rentals are the perfect place book whether you’re an out-of-town traveler or Austinite looking for a luxurious staycation. 


Just three miles away from downtown, this 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom home has a dream kitchen for any aspiring chef. After you’ve cooked a gourmet meal for your family or friends, unwind on the patio or balcony before heading into the city to explore. Experience life near Lake Austin with a trip to Hula Hut for a bite to eat or an afternoon coffee at Mozart’s Coffee Roasters.


Accurately named the Spicewood Sanctuary, this 7 bedroom / 5.5 bathroom home is almost too good to be true. Enjoy the views of Lake Travis from the back porch while you sip a bottle of wine from a local Hill Country winery. Rustic, cabin-inspired features, and a sparkling pool will make you feel like you’re at a private, peaceful resort.

West Central

Perfectly situated between Lake Austin and downtown, this historic 6 bedroom / 8 bathroom ranch estate once belonged to U.S. President Lyndon Baines Johnson. This home, while full of history, was recently renovated and boasts a large, modernized kitchen, a game room, and a gorgeous new pool. Take your stay to the next level by visiting the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and LBJ Library, soaking in the splendor of the family that once called this residence home.

South Central

This 4 bedroom / 3 bathroom home is tucked away in the heart of one of the quirkiest parts of the city. Just a five minute walk from South Congress, you can enjoy everything this urban oasis has to offer and then visit SoCo for one-of-a-kind shopping and dining. Bright, open spaces give this modern residence a relaxing and rejuvenating feel.

Lake Travis

The term ”palatial villa” is an understatement for this 4 bedroom / 3.5 bathroom estate. Surrounded by boat docks, gorgeous views for miles, and spacious outdoor living, this home has everything you could need for a getaway. Spend the day on Lake Travis before coming home to grill and watch the sunset over the water from your backyard.

We hope you enjoy your stay, no matter the area of Austin! Experience the city like a true Austinite with the Moreland Properties Austin Area Guides.
