Austin Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 large Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Convertible bed(s), 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.

Love the Heart House

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
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

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
  • Submitted: Sep 18, 2013

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.

In love with the Heart House!

This condo is sheer delight, spacious, well-equipped for every need, very comfortable bed and the coffee is a perfect wake-up. We walked the Hike and Bike trail every morning, enjoyed Barton Springs, and found good restaurants very near, especially Uncle Billy's. I especially liked the keyless entry. We own 2 beach condos at Port Aransas and rent them out, so I understand the effort these owners have gone to so our stay was so pleasant. I plan to return regularly--thanks.

Heart House Rocked ACL

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 18, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
We recently stayed 4 nights at the Heart House and loved this spacious 1 bedroom condo. Conveniently located just a few short blocks from Barton Springs and Zilker Park, it was the perfect respite for us after attending 3 solid days of the ACL Festival. We chose not to rent a car this trip knowing we'd be mostly inside the festival, and found it easy to walk everywhere we needed to go, including into downtown for breakfast post-festival - though we are active people. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, and the views from the balcony were great in the early mornings. Heart House is well stocked with the basic amenities, including organic coffee ready to grind, brew and enjoy. We didn't cook on this trip, but the kitchen had everything you'd need and a barbecue is at the ready on the deck. The king bed is cozy, and the bedroom itself comfortable and spacious. Since we flew out late afternoon well beyond checkout and didn't have a car, the owners were gracious to allow us to leave our packed bags inside the front door while we walked around town. We'd return here as a couple, and it's roomy enough that good friends could share the space if willing to sleep on a pull out bed and share the single bathroom. Enjoyed our stay, thanks very much!
