This eco-friendly vacation rental near Austin, Texas, is the ultimate in vintage hippy style and modern sensibility.

In the efficient Hollywood bathroom, guests will find a toilet, a sink, and a shower. Linens and towels are provided.
This retreat is perfect for free-spirited travelers looking for a unique experience. Everything in the rental tells a story. Many of the decorations were collected by the owner on his world travels. The windows were recycled from a school, the countertops were taken from a bowling alley, and the container base was repurposed from a laboratory. Even the container itself has history and guests can imagine where it traveled before setting in Texas.
This rental strives to transport guests to another time and simpler life. In the living room, instead of staring at a TV, guests can relax on the sofa and enjoy the selection of books along with vintage records and a record player. The kitchenette just off the living room is equipped with a sink, a microwave, a mini-fridge, and a coffeemaker.
Guests can step out of the rental onto the deck and enjoy rocking away and taking a nap in the hammock. At night, guests will truly feel like they’re in another world as they sit around the firepit and connect with family and friends under the stars. Read More

This small town is full of charm and is loaded with historic buildings such as the small schoolhouse, the William Lockhart Clayton House, and Menke House. Henkel Square Market is seven acres of unique shops and historic buildings set among beautiful gardens and groves of oak trees.

This idyllic little town is the perfect setting for events and is also home to a six-week classical music festival in June and July.
