Austin House Rental Photos and Description

Zilker Zen is a luxury, modern decor home set within a completely enclosed, bamboo lined property featuring a beautiful succulent garden, sun deck, and more than 1,400 square feet of outdoor living.

The house is also loaded with amenities such as a modern kitchen, spa shower, outdoor fire place, high-speed wireless internet, and a full entertainment system equipped with large plasma TV, surround sound, blue tooth integration for Iphone/IPad music, turntable with record collection, and outdoor speakers for relaxing on the patio.

Zilker Zen allows you to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Austin life, and then quickly retreat at day's end to your own private paradise.

Pets are welcome at this property, but please discuss with us and obtain approval before making your reservation, as there are some restrictions and rules.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We couldn't have been happier with the choice of Zilker Zen House for our family gathering during our son's graduation weekend. From the moment we walked through the gate and into the spacious, artfully landscaped front yard, we knew we'd found a restful oasis in the city. The house is beautifully decorated and architecturally unique with every amenity our three-generation group could ask for--a lovely, fully equipped kitchen, at&T; U-Verse for the wall-mounted flat screen TV, an inviting tin-roof screened-in porch, and a deck and ping pong table for the 20-somethings. The location was perfect as well--close to both casual and upscale restaurants (try Olivia!) and great for city hikes to Zilker Park and Barton Springs or shopping on South Congress. Jay and Lauren were just a text or phone call away and answered my questions immediately."

Reviewer Comments:

Zilker Zen is exactly as pictured! It is a beautiful retreat centrally located in Austin. The property is perfect for a private getaway weekend. The home was very clean and updated. The kitchen was well stocked and there were plenty of clean towels. We were very impressed with Emerson Properties. There were a few minor issues (accessing the gate opener, etc) and Emerson was quick and responsive. Only con was that there were several burnt-out lights in the kitchen area that made it difficult to see. Would love to stay here again!

This house was perfect for our stay in Austin. Fabulous location. Great, open floorpan with lots of doors/windows which made it light. Everything looked quite new and contemporary. Highly recommend it.

Great place. Rental company was extremely helpful and available - provided an Aerobed and even shipped back something we'd left behind. House itself is very cool, very Austin. Walking distance to restaurants, coffee, etc.

I have been impressed with Emerson Guest Properties since I first made contact with them. They are impressively professional and well-organized. And very helpful. A good TV was important to me, and Brooke Andrus checked it out, assured me of the channels I wanted, etc. They also provide a great app from which to communicate with them, learn local sites, etc. Very impressive. The house itself is lovely and comfortable. The ice machine acted up the first day we were there, and they immediately brought in ice cube trays. Very responsive to our needs. My sisters and I come to Austin once a year, and we plan to make Zilker Zen House our special place for years to come. We could not have asked for a better experience. We have rented several places of various kinds, and none was as completely satisfying as Zilker Zen. It is also in a nice neighborhood near all kinds of good restaurants and things. Excellent!

We were incredibly impressed by the house. The modern décor, abundance of sunlight and quiet, 'zen-like' setting resulted in a truly relaxing time. I would highly recommend this house for any stay in the Austin area especially for fun groups who can take advantage of the balcony views, fire pit and ping pong table!

We stayed here the week we got married in Dripping Springs with a few members of our bridal party and could not have chosen a better house! Everything was tastefully decorated and the house was equipped with every amenity we could have asked for. Loved the modern decor and ping pong table was a big hit as well!
