Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 1050 square feet, sleeps 6

Explore Zilker Park from your front door. This architect designed 1955 duplex is built into a hillside with terraced gardens out your front windows and treetops out the back. At 1050 square feet this first floor 1 bedroom is spacious! An easy walk to restaurants, coffee shops, live music venues and all that makes Austin special. Downtown Austin is less than a mile away, an easy walk or bike ride on the lovely hike and bike trail.

Barton Creek Greenbelt: One of Austin's premier mountain biking, hiking, trail running and rock climbing destinations. This 8 mile long, 809 acre greenbelt begins less than 1/4 a mile away from our front door. Beautiful and fun in any season. During wet weather the creek is a kayak, tubing and swimming destination with numerous small waterfalls and fun rapids.

Austin's Hike and Bike Trail: Easy access to downtown is car-free on this waterfront trail, 1/2 block from our front door. Popular with bikers, walkers and joggers, trees and wildflowers provide shade and beauty along this 10.3 mile trail which loops around the lake. Several pedestrian bridges cross into downtown with access points to live music venues, restaurants, shopping, museums, concert halls, the opera house and beyond. Don't miss the Congress Avenue Bridge, home to the largest Urban Bat Colony in the world!

SERENE spot!

  • 4 of 5
The house was perfect. Lots of space inside with a lovely patio outside! Rainy stay prevented us from enjoying Zilker Park. We didn't anticipate the distances to downtown so had lots of long walks. Wishing the owners had been better informed about live music venues and how that all worked. We had a waiter Dan who taught us about Lyft site for transportation. Loved LBJ Library, etc. Owner plans to address that. For longer stays, I would have rented a car.

Owner's Response: Thanks! You all are inspiring us to get out and see more music.
I tend to get a year's full of listening over the two ACL weekends and
forget about the rest of the year!

Best ACL rent house!

  • 5 of 5
This little tree house was perfect for my little family. It has a very short walk to ACL which is great when you traveling with a 7yr old and a 1yr old! This was our 2nd year staying here and hopefully it won't be our last! Perfect!

Clean, spacious, comfortable, on a quiet street. Lots of amenities; fridge, microwave, tv, appliances, speedy wifi (better than the throttled speeds I get at most hotels).

Two minute walk to the edge of Zilker park. From there you've got your pick on getting around, sidewalks, trails that go on for miles and can get you to downtown. If you're a casual bike rider and don't need anything fancy, there's batches of B-Cycle stations close by and at $8 per day or $25 per week, its hard to beat the convenience.

Alamo Drafthouse is a 12 minute walk and the best place in Austin to catch a movie.

There's a batch of outstanding restaurants (Green Mesquite, Chuy's, The Picnic-Food Truck Park and more) on Barton Springs Road, 12 to 20 minute walk.

If/when I'm back in Austin, I'll try and stay here again!

Awesome Place to Stay! Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here on a spontaneous trip to Austin with our 2 kids under the age of three. It worked really well for us and sure beat staying in a hotel. I loved all the big windows and landscaping! Felt like we were in a tree house. The pictures definitely don't do it justice. The location was perfect for us. Really close to great local restaurants and parks. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

The Perfect Austin Rental

  • 5 of 5
Our small family just returned from the Wren's Nest and we absolutely hated to leave it. The rental is extremely spacious for a small family or couple. We found it spotless and with every extra you could possibly need (pillows and blankets, board games, kitchen items, kids' movies). The king mattress was extremely comfortable and our daughter loved the pull-out couch. There is so much natural light, yet you have complete privacy with the lovely trees and bamboo outside.

The location cannot be emphasized enough - a short walk to Barton Springs and Zilker Park, Austin Java, Flip Happy Crepes, and Juiceland. South Congress and downtown are a 5 minute drive. We could have easily stayed another week. From this home base you can be as active as you please or set out on foot and just explore the beautiful surroundings and wonderful eateries close by.

Customer service was responsive without being intrusive. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to others. Pictures do not do it justice - especially in terms of space. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

AMAZING HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This house was PERFECT.Amanda was such a pleasure to coordinate with. Spoke to me multiple times on the phone and provided really clear directions to her home. Once my friends and I got there we had such an amazing time. She had everything we could have needed- toiletries, coffee and coffee pot, tons of towels, blankets, etc. The neighborhood was gorgeous, on top of Zilker park and Barton Springs and a quick bike ride to downtown. We had the best time and can't wait to stay at Amanda's again.
