The Pool – The thing you’ll love most about the Riverside Retreat is the sparkling swimming pool. Take a dip and then relax under the covered patio that features a colorful, Instagram-able mural perfect for group photos!

The Location – You’ll also enjoy short commutes to and from many of Austin’s iconic destinations. Rainey Street is just a 1.5 mile walk or scooter ride away! Many ride share app options are also available if you aren’t planning to rent a vehicle for your trip.

Any thing to look out for here? At VRMA one of the speakers made a point that you should let people know of any tricky doors, neighborhood issues, etc. in your guide since the guest has already booked. Better to give them a heads up and say its no big deal rather than them thinking you hid something / they had a bad experience that could have been avoided.
