4500 SQFT CASA GRANDE 1 MILE FROM DOWNTOWN. AN AWESOME LITTLE PALACE!

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms,1 converted sleep area, 5 Baths (Sleeps 13+)

It doesn't get better than this central/south Austin location to have family reunions. The living areas are large, cozy and allow for everyone to be together or spread out. Since the house has had two additions it mixes the old Austin with new chic. It is full of windows and skylights to let in the beautiful speckled light through the many trees. There are also many upgrades that come with this house including: handmade kitchen pottery, cove lighting, foot heaters, multiple shower heads and bidet in master bath, artisan light fixtures and wall hangings, stain glassed features, whole house music system, 2 master suites with 2 master bathrooms, long leaf pine wanes coating, glass tile, claw-foot tub and more!

At every turn, this house warms your heart and will make you and your family feel good. Bi-level outdoor decks and dining table allow for large outdoor gatherings in charming yard. This cozy 4500 sq ft abode sits on a double lot with 5 towering oak trees for lots of privacy.

Zilker Neighborhood: The Zilker/Barton Heights neighborhood has always been one of my favorite 'hoods in town. It's close to everything so that makes it nice. All the restaurants on Barton Springs Rd is walkable as are 2 local yoga studios, a few bars, a retro bowling alley, and the Alamo Drafthouse (our own eat & drink while you watch) movie theater. The best thing about our neighborhood is that it is safe. People (like you and me) walk and jog the streets from 5am until midnight. There's also a lot of Moms and/or Dads pushing strollers. I only started locking my house in the last few years after I had children. It also is perfectly safe to leave the windows open 24/7 for fresh air in appropriate weather. Gratefully, I've never had an incidence of theft or suspicious behavior.

About Colette Zygmont

I lived in this house for many many years. I adore every corner of it. It's super special and will surely exceed your expectations of a vacation rental. I, however, am choosing to live much more simply these days so i bought another house, very, very close by to protect my awesome little palace.

Colette Zygmont purchased this house in 1995

Why Colette Zygmont chose Austin

My house is close to everything but because of its layout, you feel like you're in France or some other exotic place. Plus, because of the abundant space you can really retreat or cozy up, whichever your preference

What makes this house unique

One of the most special places in Austin in Barton Springs pool. It is our crown jewel, open 365 days a year because its spring fed. The house is a 10 min walk from the springs. i encourage every guest to 'get baptized' Austin style. It will leave a lasting memory!

Totally Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
I was in a bind to find a rental due to getting overbooked on a different rental. Colette was very quick to respond, and very sweet and nice on the phone. Good customer service goes a long way! I ended up renting and was so surprised at how nice this property actually was. Our whole party felt so relaxed and enjoyed our time here so much. Even better, the early birds who turned in before the rest did had no problem with the noise in the rest of the house. Such a "zen-ed in" property. The decor was gorgeous. We definetly recommend this house and will choose it again if the need arises.

This house is great for large families or large groups. It lived up to the pictures and was clean and inviting. Colette was very helpful and we would recommend this property. We wanted to hang out together and not be in hotel rooms. We walked everywhere which was an added bonus. The weather was great and the house was just what we needed. Great vacation!

Good times

  • 5 of 5
With a group of 10 guys, we had a great time at the Awesome Little Palace. Easy access to downtown via walk or quick cab ride (look up the karaoke cab in Austin if you can). The house has lots of room with a convenient dining/living room for party congregation. I'll use it again if I'm back in Austin.

great place with some limitations

  • 4 of 5
Overall, this was a great home that met most of our needs. We had a large family group in town for graduation, and wanted a place that could comfortably accommodate 15 people and two dogs. This was perfect. Everyone said they loved how much space they had. Another strength, as other reviewers have stated, is that Collette was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. The house was also very clean and nice. As reviewers have also said, the location is absolutely fabulous!

There were a few problems, however, that interfered with our stay. The air conditioning unit on the top floor was broken, and the room was very hot and stuffy over the weekend. We also had problems with water temperature in two of the bathrooms. One was extremely hot and the other only cold. The last, and probably most substantial, limitation was the kitchen. Although nice, it was disorganized and tough to accommodate a large group. I like to cook, and for a group this large, the kitchen was limited. Two of the burners did not work, there was no dish soap, and the pots and pans were not completely clean and had been scattered in a disorganized manner in the cabinet (so it was difficult to get what was needed without a good amount of digging and other pans/dishes falling over). If you plan on eating out or ordering in, the kitchen should be no problem. But if you want to cook for your big group, it might be a little tough.

Again, overall, this is a great place with some limitations.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the 5 stars, although that sounds generous considering your experience. I wish you had reported that the AC was not working. The next group did report it and a brand new unit was installed promptly. Nothing is worse than being hot in Texas and I'm sorry you had that awful experience. The kitchen is a mess, I agree. I gave up trying to keep it tidy with so many folks in there moving things around. I can see how that could be frustrating. I checked the burners. The pilot lights were out and re- lit with a match. And i'm sorry you got frustrated with the plumbing situation. I called a plumber after you checked out and they said everything was working perfectly. The temperature dial on the upstairs shower was set on scalding. It just needed to be adjusted to a more appropriate temperature for your liking.

So please, please should you ever have issues like this either on a return visit or in any other vacation rental, consider a text or a phone call as soon as you have an issue. I am eager to please and, living 2 houses away, could have made your stay more comfortable immediately.

I'm glad it did not interfere with your visit. Please come back and i'll make sure everything is perfect!

Austin Event

  • 5 of 5
This is an incredible house and was perfect for our needs. We had a family wedding and needed a location close to downtown, and a place that was easy to entertain in as we had many guests visit. This home was very clean and the owner contacted us to make sure everything was in order and to answer any questions. There was a need for an ac unit to be worked on and she made sure that didn't interfere with our schedules, and it was fixed the same afternoon, very quickly. I would definitely recommend this property.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
This place is even more stunning than the photos suggest! Tucked away down a lovely street just off Barton Springs Road, this house is perfectly located for both Zilker Park and downtown Austin. Very spacious, immaculately kept and very well equipped - we found this the perfect place to spend a week in Austin's beautiful surroundings.

Couldn't recommend this place, nor the owner's care and attention before and upon renting, highly enough.

Owner's Response: Ah Adam!

It was really nice having you. It's always a pleasure to show off our fine town to Europeans especially since the UK is one of my favorite places to visit across the pond. I was so thrilled to see you and yours enjoying Barton Springs, our crown jewel.

And thanks for bringing the cool spring with you. I know you thought it was hot but we are pleasantly surprised to still need sweaters in the morning.

Best to you and many happy returns!
