About Lisa Rom

Hi there,

This is the best neighborhood in Austin and very near downtown! The night life, outdoor activities, fun people and amazing weather are just some of the reasons I love this place. It's living in a beautiful tree lined neighborhood but being able to walk to cool restaurants and the best live music venue in all of Austin. Not to mention a stone's throw to downtown. I hope you learn to love Austin as much as I do.

Lisa Rom purchased this house in 2012

Why Lisa Rom chose Greater South River City

The pictures speak for themselves. This house is definitely a gem in the prestigious Travis Heights neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

The house is spacious, has big beautiful bedrooms, modern decor and has a great old vibe but is kept immaculately clean and presented with modern hip furnishings. The original beauty of the home has been maintained throughout. I also have bikes available for enjoying the fun outdoor lifestyle that locals can't get enough of.

5 Star Hotels Can't Touch This Place!

  • 5 of 5

This should sum it up: We live in a home with 3 times the square footage, with a pool/jaccuzi , on a lake, but we have missed Lisa's place since we came home! Amazing!

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and has a home feeling, where you leave your home and arrive at your new found home in Austin! The house is very spacious, clean and has a Texas feel all around. Lisa was very accommodating and easy to contact at any point in the day. Stayed here for a bachelorette and we had an amazing time, grasped the whole Austin experience in a weekend! South Congress is also walking distance or a short car ride away.

Great old house in quite neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

First, Lisa was a very accommodating and attentive host and I thank her for that. This is a wonderful roomy old house with a modern kitchen and central A/C. I loved the cedar closets, real wood floors that creak, and large bedrooms. Early risers can see a great sunrise outback on the deck. The window in the small room off the living-room is great to open and get a cool breeze blowing through the house.

Just remember this is an old house and things do go bump in the night; especially during high winds as we found out. We kept hearing a banging sound during the night and discovered the window sashes were loose on the bedroom windows. One was not locked securely and the other was remedied by inserting a small piece of cardboard between the sash and the frame. Enjoyed!!
