MID-CENTURY ZILKER HIDEAWAY

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bath, sleeps 8

Eclectic, contemporary, laid-back home just minutes from Zilker Park! Walk down to the ACL Fest, and then return to the tranquility of your private oasis. Located on a quiet residential street, this split-level home features gleaming hardwood floors, amazing light, and a large recently-refinished pool surrounded by a new deck. The spacious floorplan allows plenty of room for you and your family to relax and soak up the Austin atmosphere.

Retro touches abound, from original light fixtures to the rock fireplace. You will feel like you've stepped back in time, while still enjoying all of the modern comforts. This home offers an ideal Austin vacation.

There is a three night minimum at all times, and no parties or events of any type are permitted at this property. The house is located on a small residential street, so only four cars are permitted to park at the house at any time.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Best Austin Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was the best get away we could possibly find in Austin. The location is central, the neighborhood is so quiet and safe. The pool is absolute perfection. The beds are incredibly comfortable. We plan on renting the same house again for the future. I would recommend this house to anyone who stays in Austin.

Our friends stayed in this gorgeous home the week of our wedding in Austin and on their behalf I can confirm how much they loved it!
Katie was very accommodating in meeting us to pick up the keys at a convenient time and showing us around the house. It felt like walking onto a californian set of Mad Men, in the heart of Zilker area in Austin.
The swimming pool is also a very very welcome treat!

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful peaceful Austin get away. All rooms are spacious, and many bathrooms means everyone had their own little private corner. I would happily stay in this house myself as a local Austin hideaway!

Loved my stay at the Rental. The location is perfect for Austin. Close to the music venues and great eateries. Downtown is easy to get to along the river.
The house is a split level which allows for the kids to be downstairs watching the TV, while the adults can sit around the pool. The neighborhood has side walks and there is a park near by. I will use this rental again.
Owner's Response: thank you

Wonderful Oasis close to the City

I LOVE THIS HOUSE! I wish I could take it to Oregon with me but then there is no sun there to enjoy by the pool. This is the perfect set-up for a big family of all ages. I love all of the bedrooms with a different color for each room. I love the character of the house. We usually stay at hotels when we go on vacation but took the chance to rent a house for the week that we were visiting our niece and nephew at UT. I am SO happy that we took that chance. Having a relaxing place to go back to that has such a comfy atmosphere was great. The kitchen was stocked withh all the amenities that I have at home. (blender, mixing bowls, plenty of gadgets, etc...) My little kids loved the neighborhood, we were there for Halloween and went Trick-or-Treating to all the neighbors. Zilker Park is a great kid friendly place within walking distance.
We will definitely return to this wonderful home.
Thank You!

Great location, but needs TLC

If your vacation includes a group of friends, this house is probably a great fit. However, my recent trip to Austin was to spend time with family (6 adults, 2 children) and attend a wedding. This meant spending a little more time in the house - in this regard, the house fell below our expecations. I recognize that people want different things out of their vacation and house rentals, so I've included a pro/con list. Hope it helps.

Pros: (1) responsive owners and management (worked with us on price and quick to address emails/questions). (2) great location (up the street from Zilker Park and close to restaurants) (3) backyard - nice landscaping and pool, (4) bedrooms - nice decor and comfortable beds, (5) family room - enough seating for large groups (max about 6), (6) washer and dryer (big plus with kids)

Cons: (1) kitchen - old, small, and closed off to other rooms. if you don't plan to spend time in the kitchen, then this is probably irrelevant. but families tend to gather in the kitchen, which was EXTREMELY tiny and closed off to the the living room. Only space for 4 to sit at the table. Although there was a larger dining table, it is located in a separate room. Owners should consider knocking down a wall or two. Also, the kitchen wasn't particularly well-kept and b/c it is old, it felt dirty, particularly inside the cabinets. (2) Amenities - the house, on average, works out to about $140-175 per room/night (4 rooms). In a hotel, for that price, I expect certain amenities - soaps, shampoos, towels, etc. Don't expect that here. Towels were plentiful. But basic bar soaps (costco - not a big deal, but when on vacation, you want something nicer) and no shampoo. Took us awhile to find toilet paper (extra was not in the bathrooms but in a random location in the laundry room). (3) Keys - if you stay here with a group, request an extra set of house keys. You need the keys to lock the door from the inside (you can't just lock the door behind you) - if you are coming/going at different times with friends/family, this creates a logistical problem. A few of us wanted to be out late, so those that stayed back had to sleep with the door unlocked, otherwise we would have had to wake them up to get back in.
(4) Overall - house is old and it feels like it. you can't tell from the photos. but, once you get in, you'll find the 1970's bedroom doors stick to the frames making impossible to quietly open/shut them, showerheads are short, bathrooms are old.

Austin at its finest! A short 10 minute walk gets you swimming in Barton Springs Pool, attending ACL, Blues On The Green and Kite Fest in Zilker Park, or enjoying the hike and bike trail, not to mention easy access to SoLa's eateries and shops (South Lamar district). Downtown Austin is about a 2 mile cab ride.
