This home was easy to find and all the ammenities any hotel could offer you, except a pool and gym but who needs a pool and gym when you can just get your exercise in by taking a walk down to nearby Barton Springs Pool. We arrived later than anticipated and just like Motel 6, they left the light on for us so it was pretty easy to find.
The house itself was in emmaculate condition, everything was clean but if you get dirty, there is a washer and dryer you can use. Coffee was fully stocked as was a refreshing pitcher of water in the fridge, spice drawer also stocked. A stove and barbeque pit are there for you if you want to stay in and cook. the decor inside was nice, the bedding was extremely comfortable. We had to force ourselves to get out of the house and engage in outdoor activities, so we took a short drive out to dripping springs (hamilton pool) to go on a hike with our 2 sons. When we returned, we walked the neighborhood and played outside in the front yard. The place had a variety of dvd movies for us to watch as well as an assortment of board games to play. We taught our 6 yr old how to play chess and he has asked to play everyday since we got back to our home in Corpus Christi, TX. There is a table for 6 and you can request a high chair and/or booster seat at no additional cost. Iron, hairdryer, additional bedding are all located in the closet. Basic toiletries were also provided (shampoo/soap/body wash as well as guest towels). The giant oak tree located in front of the porch has to be at least 100 yrs old and provided nice shade and privacy. The shower /tub could easily fit four people, that's how big it is and you have 2 shower heads hitting your body on each side.
The rate was much pricier than what we're used to paying, we stayed at the Austin Motel on South Congress on our last visit, which is in a great location but during our last trip we lost a good 2 hrs of sleep after some guests were having a conversation right outside of our room. I said "never again" and on this trip, I made it a point to do better research on places to stay in Austin, I came across some very small font on "google maps" and saw the words Zilker Vacations on the map. I clicked on it as I was intrigued and it led me to the website. I read reviews and booked it for the date that I wanted, full payment is expected 2 wks prior to date of arrival. Everything was perfect, can't say enough about this place which is why I used all space allowed on here. :)
