Top Trip Rentals has your vacation rental home just like you’d like it, and KEY Concierge further enhances that stay. Technology helps their tea of hospitality experts develop and deliver customized itineraries in advance for out-of-towners.
Founder and CEO Kim Shrum created the app-based service to provide “next level” services for discerning travelers and staycationers.
“We’re in a rewarding business,” explains Shrum. “We’re creating memories for our clients through unique experiences you can’t buy out of a box.”
These special itineraries involve tapping into the local community to identify unique adventures (arranging day trips to Marfa or catering intimate dinner parties) as well as satisfying everyday needs.
Our Top Trip guests find that KEY Concierge is a big help with services such as pre-arrival grocery delivery, bar stocking, and airport transportation. No matter what’s on the agenda, KEY Concierge infuses its services with personable and thoughtful attention to detail.

Dripping Springs was once a sleepy ranch town. Located 25 miles west of Austin, the town is on the way to the gorgeous Texas Hill Country. But as with all things near Austin, Dripping Springs has changed.
Today, it’s thriving town in it’s own right. With a new string of vineyards dotting the landscape, a thriving wine community exits. Only a short drive from downtown, Dripping Springs is an easy spot for a day trip getaway.
Local Wine and Food Festival
If you are looking for an excuse to explore Dripping Springs, this weekend provides the perfect opportunity. This Saturday, September 10, 2016, the city is hosting the 9th Annual “Dripping with Taste Wine & Food Festival”. The Food and Wine Festival showcases more than 75 food, wine, and spirits vendors made or produced in nearby Dripping Springs.
In Texas, we love to drive. Cars rule the road. So how do you get around Austin if you’re not driving?
At one point in time, Uber and Lyft suspended operations in Austin after voters weighed in on Proposition 1. As a result, the Austin City Council proceeded with more stringent security requirements. (This Texas Monthly article provides excellent coverage about the debate. Welcome to Austin, folks; we have lots of civic engagement!)
What Are My Ride Options in Austin?
If you’re navigating Austin without a car, what are the transportation options?
Austin has public transportation (take Capital Metro for both bus and light rail)
Try a ride hailing service (like GetMe and RideFare; Wingz goes to and from the airport only)
Car2Go is a convenient carsharing service (and dedicated parking places).
Austin’s primary cab services are Yellow Cab and Austin Cab (note that Austin’s cab companies gets less than stellar reviews on Yelp. From the complaints, cab services seem to take a long time, so allow plenty of lead time when requesting a pick-up)
Austin B-cycle, a cycling ride share, is a great way to have some fun and get a bit of exercise. And there’s a station conveniently located directly in front of our Littlefield Lofts on 6th Street!
TIP: Top Trip Rentals hasn’t tried it yet, but Shire Cab Company gets great reviews. The driver, Al, is a local musician (and, we hear, a character), so try Shire Cab Company for that uniquely Austin experience.
My personal favorite account? Pinterest. Why? Choose any Austin experience you want, scroll through those images, and see what catches your eye.
