1. The sophisticated haven in East Austin
Weirdly close to Austin. Well, no, basically in Austin – some of the best coffee in the city is a five-minute walk away (Fleet Coffee) and yet, this place is very ambient and spacious and calming. This is, in part, thanks to the private pool and patio with outdoor furniture. It is also due to the neutral soft interiors, natural light and materials throughout and I guess having this bubble of luxe so close to the city is unusual, so that makes it all the more special. It sleeps eight.
