Tootie's Place is a sweet cottage in the Zilker Neighborhood. The home is lovingly renovated and decorated in a blend of modern amenities, such as the LED HDTV's and premium appliances, with furnishings suited to the home's earlier origins. Enjoy your morning coffee or take your afternoon respite on the deep, shady, welcoming front porch or in the privacy of the back sun porch. Either way, you're relaxing in peace and quiet on this no-outlet street in the heart of the Zilker neighborhood. The location is ideal for your Austin visit. It is walking distance to Barton Springs, the greenbelt, Lady Bird Lake Hike & Bike Trail, and the Saxon Pub and other South Lamar destinations. A nice stroll to downtown and just a few minutes drive to everything you're coming to do in Austin.
The house is designed to be a mid-term rental (1 - 6 months lease) for 1 or 2 people. We do take shorter stays to fill gaps in our calendar, so feel free to ask about your dates.

My husband, the cat, and I just returned from our third month-long stay at Tootsie’s Place. We have spent the month of June in Austin in each of the past 5 years because our children and only grandchild live there. We discovered Tootsie’s Place after trying two other locations the two previous years.
The house is spotless, fully-equipped, comfortable, and well-located. It places us a ten minute drive from our kids (southwest Austin) and a ten minute drive to downtown. Fine yoga studios, a nice Gold’s gym, several markets including a terrific Central Market, and numerous music venues are located within easy driving distance. This year we caught a great acoustic set at the Saxon (just down the street) where we discovered a wonderful local fiddler, Warren Hood. Had we been able to stay longer, we would have seen AJ Croce at the near-by Strange Brew.
Gina and Steve, the owners and neighbors, are delightful and attentive and we look forward to visiting with them each year. Until our grandson is too old to spend a month with us, we hope to continue our summer stays at Tootsie’s Place.
Perfect for a first time renter in Austin: location, so convenient; owners, so helpful; cottage appointments and amenities, comfy and functional! Evening walks around the neighborrhood a highlight.
Ideal for long-term stays, whether you want to dive into Austin's burgeoning cultural scene or use it as base for exploring Central Texas. I will come back again and again!
I can't say enough nice things about Tootie's. It's in a perfect location; walking distance to Zilker Park, 5 minutes to downtown, SoCo and SoLa and unbelievably easy access to Mopac, which will get you anywhere quickly. So many great shops, bars and restaurants nearby, an Alamo Drafthouse, bowling, the Barton Springs pool, trails, boat rentals, all right there. The house itself is immaculate and cozy. Very nicely decorated, in a style that fits the house, with one of the most comfortable beds you'll ever sleep in. The street is not a through way, which is a huge plus in this neighborhood. Very quiet at night. And the nicest hosts you could ask for. Be sure to note, it is a small house, so take the "sleeps 2" part of the description to heart. And if you're tall, be prepared stand head and shoulders above the shower head. But don't let those things sway you away. If you're looking for a clean, quiet retreat for one or two people, close to all the best parts of Austin, this is the one. You will be glad you stayed here.
This is a truly exceptional rental property and could not have been more perfect.
My husband and I spend a month each year in Austin visiting family. This was our first stay here and definitely will not be the last. This small house is all usable space with plenty of closet space and storage. Each room has several windows further lending it an open and spacious feeling. It feels new, clean, and welcoming.
The house is fully equipped. Our children joined us for dinner on Fridays and the kitchen had every cooking utensil that I needed. There was a “to-go” cup to take coffee to the gym, a vase for fresh flowers for the table, colander for draining veggies, an excellent set of knives, and a vacuum with which to clean up the crumbs left by a 5 year old grandchild.
Conveniently located near the downtown area, we found ourselves within a 10 minute drive of at least 3 yoga studios, a gym, terrific grocery stores, a theater, and some great music.
Lastly, owners Steve and Gina went out of their way to make sure that our stay was comfortable. We look forward to visiting them again next summer (when I fully expect there will still be crumbs!).
Tootie's place is even more wonderful than its listing. The house was very clean and beautifully appointed with furniture, dishes, housewares, appliances, linens, etc. The owners could not have been more helpful or nice. There were fresh flowers in a vase on table in the eat in kitchen and a nice bottle of wine to greet me when I arrived. It is a great location to explore Austin and also walk to Zilker Park and the paths around the river that runs through the middle of Austin's downtown area. The back and front porches are wonderful to just relax on. It is a very quiet and relaxing neighborhood. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and all the stores one might need or want including grocery stores, pharmacies etc. I would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives and hope to stay there again in the near future.
Tooties's was the perfect rental for us! The Cottage was immaculate, well-maintained and the owners were lovely folks who aimed to please. Although the rooms were small, the kitchen had every gadget needed for cooking, bath linens were more than ample, and the small office served a variety of needs; in addition, the inviting porch and backyard deck provided an outside getaway to regroup from a day's outing. We loved Tootie's convenient location---close to Zilker Park for our daily walking routine and close to local restaurants offering theTex-Mex food we miss in Maine. When our Austin resident sons visited, we were afraid our "reunions" would be too loud for the neighborhood----but the owners, Gina and Steve, put our minds at rest, even joining us on the porch meeting our family. From our stay at Tootie's, we discovered small spaces have a definite advantage and kind owners are in a 4 Star category of their own. Thanks, Gina and Steve, for an awesome stay . . . Til next time, Jo Ann and Bill (Northport, Maine)
We are located in the heart of Austin. Close to the bustling city, but just up the hill from Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park in a quiet neighborhood.
If you are ready for music, the Broken Spoke, Saxon Pub, Continental Club, Radio, and One2One are all nearby.
The Hill Country and Highland Lakes are just a day trip away or you could go antiquing in Round Top!
