Austin Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 large Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, sofa bed, Sleeps up to 4

City of Austin License #2014 007840. The fun loving Heart House will certainly make you smile! You will sleep soundly in the king pillow-top mattress and enjoy the 3rd story view from the floor to ceiling windows in the bedroom. The living room features a vaulted ceiling with clerestory windows which provide wonderful natural lighting. The balcony is always a popular hangout spot for your morning coffee, dinner, or a late night cocktail. The Heart House has a fully furnished kitchen to cook in if you so choose. The entry is only a 1/2 flight of stairs from the parking spot right in front of this 6 unit building built into a hill in Barton Hills. Have fun finding the hearts in all the art on the walls!

Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park: We are located approx. two blocks from the single best swimming pool in the universe, Barton Springs. Located in the heart of Zilker Park, use our beach towels and enjoy the spring fed, chlorine-free 68 degree waters of this over 1/8 mile long watering hole. Also enjoy the hike and bike trail, boating on the river, frisbee golf, the Nature Center, the Botanical Gardens, the playground and the train for the kids or a picnic on the great lawn. Zilker Park is Austin's crown jewel, and certainly one of the most fantastic outdoor recreational areas on the planet!

Downtown Austin!: The legendary 6th Street is where you can find great live music every night of the week in dozens of bars. Don't bother driving down there, parking is a problem and it's only a $8 cab fare. Also, don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, South 1st Street, 2nd Street, 4th Street and then West 6th Street!

Alamo Drafthouse and The Highball (re-opening later this year): See a movie while eating dinner or just having a drink at Austin's favorite theater, the Alamo Drafthouse, or enjoy dinner, drinks, live music, dancing or karaoke at The Highball, both just over a mile from this condo.

Nice and clean, well stocked

  • 5 of 5
The Heart House was great for the two of us. We have stayed with Zilker Vacations a couple of times before. We got what we expected...clean and well stocked. If you need something just make a call and they will try to help you out. We dined out on the balcony every day. Love the art work!!

Heart House is Perfect for Formula 1 Lodging

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Heart House while attending the Formula 1 race in November 2013 and it was perfect. We were close to two of the designated parking areas (about a 20 minute drive) as well as to downtown Austin (5 minute drive) for the variety of restaurants and racing vibe. There were also restaurants and shops close by as noted in the book left for all guests to use during the stay.

The one bedroom rental with its full kitchen, very comfortable bed and tastefully decorated space made our stay very memorable. The gourmet coffees were a welcoming touch as well. Cynthia and Jay also left us a Formula 1 magazine which was a great souvenir from our trip.

We plan to attend the race again this year but since we are traveling with several couples, we cannot take advantage of such awesome hospitality. However for future rentals, we do not need to look elsewhere as this is our place to stay.

Thank you for a great trip!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Jackie,
Glad our Heart House worked out so well for you last year. If you are traveling with more friends, consider our 2 bedroom properties, The Treehouse, Kaleido House and Park Place. All sleep up to 6 with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and a pull out couch in the living room. All are on the same block so the location is the same overall. We look forward to our returning guests, some who come back every year. Hope to see you soon!
Cynthia, Peach and Jay

Heart House in Austin is Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Tucked on a quite street in a lovely Austin neighborhood is the Heart House. We stayed here 8 nights at the start of a long summer road trip and found it to be the perfect place to begin our trip. The kitchen is well stocked as we love to cook. The amenities were up to date and very accommodating. We also had our little dog with us and he too found it to be warm and inviting. You'll love Barton Creek which is just around the corner.. Can't go wrong with this property.

Love the Heart House

  • 5 of 5
I head down to Austin every so often for work, and I try to stay with Zilker whenever possible. The Heart House is a treat - always homey, well kept, and a lovely place to come back to after a long day. And it's quiet, but still close enough that I've gone downtown or to the park when the day's not so long.

It's also got complimentary movies, kitchen, some actual living space - it's basically like staying out a friend's apartment while they're out of town. Recommended.

We heart the Heart House

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed at this lovely rental for our vacation to Austin. The location was great, it was well stocked, very clean, and the bed was beyond comfortable. Peach, Cynthia and Jay were more than accomodating and even allowed us to check out a little later on our last day. We wil most definitely be renting from them the next time we're in Austin!

Great home away from home nestled in Hill Country

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend had stayed in Zilker Vacations properties a couple times before and recommended we stay there for our most recent trip to Austin. I am so glad that we chose them over a regular chain hotel. We were in town for the Waterman's Paddle for Humanity event over at the Texas Rowing Center and stayed "The Heart House," which was maybe 10 minutes away. Nestled in a nice, tree-lined, "hilly," quiet neighborhood, the location was also convenient to tons of restaurants and bars, grocery stores and more. Many places were within walking distance, including a place to drop into Barton Springs creek and multiple trails, and a very short drive from Zilker Park. The unit itself was as fantastic as the location. It was a small 1 bed/1 bath apartment complete with full kitchen, living and dining areas, fireplace, parking spot and large balcony with views of the hills. Although we didn't use the grill, we did take advantage of the patio table and chairs for our morning coffee and breakfast. We didn't cook there at all, but had everything to do so if we wanted to. They even had spices, Saran wrap, foil and Ziploc baggies, which came in handy. We had a real coffee pot and not one of those tiny 4-cup things you get in hotel rooms, and whole bean coffee that we ground with the provided grinder. Jay and Cynthia thought of everything down to the umbrella in case it rained, the Whole Foods branded shampoo/conditioner and shower gel, many books and magazines to read, games to play, and a nice variety of DVDs. When we originally booked, it was just going to be the two of us, but had to bring my boyfriend's 12 year-old twins at the last minute, so the fold out in the living room was a plus! All in all, we had a wonderful time and felt like were in a home away from home during our stay. The only thing I would have liked is a w/d, but since it was a short trip, it was an issue. For me personally, this unit might be a little too cozy for four people, especially if you stay longer than a weekend. It's just hard for me to share a bathroom with three other people. Nonetheless, we made do and have no complaints. A couple friends who frequent Austin stopped by on our last day and we showed them around and told them how great Jay and Cynthia were to work with. They'll be calling Zilker Vacations on their next Austin trip and so will we! Thank you for helping make our weekend that much more fun!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that our amenities make things more pleasant for people staying with us. It's the little things that count sometimes. There are 2 washers and dryers in the laundry room, free for our guests use, soap included. It's not as convenient as having it in the condo itself though. Next time, with a group of 4, I recommend our Kaleido House or Park Place down the block which do have their own W/D and are much larger 2 bedroom duplexes. We look forward to our return guests and always offer a 5% discount to them.
