This is our guest house, newly constructed this year. It is in a setting where guests can enjoy privacy. The Zilker neighborhood is a very interactive place where neighbors know each other, take walks, ride bikes. We want to maintain the family oriented environment, and ask our guests to respect the neighborhood. No parties please.

Susana purchased this house in 2013

We live in the heart of Austin, a vibrant city with much to offer. We are within walking distance of numerous restaurants, the hike and bike trails, Zilker Park (short walk to ACL!) and shopping. It is perfect place to stay when coming in for ACL, SXSW, Film Festival, Austin Kite Festival, UT football games, XGames. It's a walk or short taxi ride from downtown and UT.

The guest house is newly constructed. The best feature is the incredible downtown view.

PERFECT LITTLE PLACE FOR A QUIETER AUSTIN STAY!

  • 5 of 5
I feel so lucky to have found this place! I was initially going to stay on my own while attending a conference downtown. I'm more than happy to walk, ride a bike, or take public transportation, and after a very loud rental experience in downtown a few years ago, I thought I'd explore another Austin neighborhood. I felt safer knowing that the owner was in the main house. This adorable little property is well outfitted for a small group; I wound up having a friend stay with me and attend the same conference, and we were plenty comfortable, each with a little private space in the evening. We were able to prepare breakfast at "home," and take a beautiful walk along the lake to the conference center (about 1.5 miles away). There are lots of places to rent bikes nearby, including an Austin B-cycle station about a block away (bike share with auto payment/rental and lots of stations around town). There are lots of great places to eat and shop nearby, including a local grocery around the corner and the flagship Whole Foods about a block away. We loved sitting on the balcony and enjoying Austin's cooler evenings with a glass of wine and a view of downtown. We never used a car once we got there (though we were blessed with great, if warm, weather)! The owner is also great - she answered emails quickly and had great suggestions, as well as a warm welcome. I would suggest adding another sharp knife or two, and maybe some bigger/deeper/differently shaped bowls (for cereal), but I think if I'd asked the owner while we were there they'd have appeared! (Oh, and maybe instructions for the A/C/ units? I'd never used those before and thought I had them working, but only had the fan on until my friend arrived and explained them to me - they work great, I just didn't know what I was doing!) The neighborhood is quiet and friendly but very close to the nightlife of Austin. I live in Florida and only get to Austin when I have a professional need to do so, but I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Those are excellent suggestions. I will definitely add more knives and bowls for cereal. Also, Whole Foods is about 1 mile away from the property. Thanks for the wonderful review!

MOST EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE FOR SXSW

  • 4 of 5
This Zilker based two-story home-away-from-home was a perfect fit for my week+ at SXSW. Nice fixtures and fittings, comfortable lounge space upstairs and well-equipped kitchen on the ground floor. Sound system was more than adequate for the space, as was the TV/cable set-up - but I didn't use it that much because the view (a little marred by the neon-bright 24-hour McDonald's) from the Downtown-facing, VERY private deck was spectacular. Walking distance to great resto's (Odd Duck, Barley Swine, Henri's, etc), an easy bus ride ($1), from a very close bus stop, into Downtown with a very nice market and super BBQ just a few steps away. Owner Susana was delightful (I only met her when I arrived which was perfect) and flexible on check-in and out timing. This was the first time I had stayed out of the of Downtown SXSW, and it was a true oasis ($10 cab ride) away from the craziness, so glad I did, and will definitely be happy to return next year! A couple thngs that could be improved (hence 4 stars): Hooks! Hooks on the back of the bathroom door. Hooks for hats/jackets. Hooks for damp towels... Hooks, and plenty of them! And for that true touch of luxury, a King bed would be an easy and much appreciated upgrade. But I had a fantastic time and would recommend this property to anyone looking for privacy that's handy for Downtown!

PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
I did not stay here but my sister did and I visited her each day. She loved it and so did I. Walking distance to Zilker Park, Barton Springs, 5 minutes to downtown and Congress, walk to Saxon Pub for live music. Rental is exactly as pictured, clean and everything you need is provided. Sat on the deck in the evenings with a glass of wine, it was great and I would definitely recommend it.

Head east a few blocks to shop in the nearby South Congress (SoCo) district. Find thrift stores, vintage shops, a costume store, candy store, antique and clothing stores, etc. Grab a pizza at Homeslice, relax at Sunday brunch at South Congress Cafe or the Woodland, enjoy Italian at the delicious Vespaio Restaruant, see a local band at the Continental Club, play a round of mini-golf at Peter Pan Golf (walking distance), or check out a play at Zach Scott Theater (walking distance). Don't forget to stop on the S. Congress bridge and check out the bats!

South 1st Street is also a few blocks from the home and is a street lined with authentic Mexican pastry shops, antique stores, record stores, boutiques and Polvo's Mexican Restaurant.

A 5 minute drive will get you to the heart of downtown where you can visit the world famous 6th Street, home of wall-to-wall bars and live music every night of the week. Visit the new 2nd Street Shopping District to catch a movie and shop local boutiques as well as high-end specialty stores. There are dozens of cafes, coffee houses, bars and restaurants to suit every taste imaginable. If you would like a tour of downtown Austin, hop aboard the Austin Duck Tour which is a boat-on-wheels! The tour guide will fill you in on Austin history while driving you around the downtown area and ultimately into the lake for a quick boat ride near Hula Hut and Mozart's Coffeehouse before returning you to your original destination.

Looking for a 24-hour eatery? Check out Magnolia Cafe or Kerby Lane Cafe.
