Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

* Sleeps 8 * Barton Springs * Zilker * ACL * SXSW * F1*

Staying here in this 3-story townhome, you will enjoy living downtown while being surrounded by a peaceful green space on a quiet, dead end street. One guest commented that it feels like 'I'm living in a beautiful tree house with a grand piano.' You will not have to worry with all of the Austin Gridlock traffic and have the choice to walk or bike to almost EVERYTHING!! Close enough to the action, but far enough away to get some sleep! Zilker Park, Barton Springs, ACL, SXSW, Long Center, Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail, Zilker Botanical Gardens, Palmer Events Center, Zach Scott Theater, go canoeing, or eat at plenty of the great restaurants, (like the original Chuy's) and there's also a grocery nearby. You will be living closer to Zilker Park and Barton Springs than the car parking areas for ACL! 2 miles to the F1 Helipad Transport! City bus is a only a 10 minute walk. You'll have nice views and beautiful sunsets. The open kitchen and living area are on the second floor. This contemporary home has been recently remodeled with all furnishings including granite countertops, fancy coffee machine, large outdoor grill, and all new appliances! 3 Bedrooms, one on each floor, 3 Full Bathrooms, Garden shower, grand piano, glass atrium and a fireplace. Fun, Funky neighborhood on a quiet 'No Outlet' street. Covered parking available. Wifi. Great place for kids that are old enough and young enough, to negotiate stairs. We are happy to offer some directions or assistance; whatever will make your stay more comfortable. We can usually offer discounts for extended stays and repeat customers--just ask. For parties larger than 8--please call us--the neighboring townhome can be rented simultaneously to host a total of 14 people! We are licensed by the City of Austin (by law all short terms rentals have to be licensed in this city; make sure to inquire before you rent. We apologize in advance for the Austin taxes). We are always happy to help you navigate all the Austin awesomeness! Send us a message if you have any questions! Can't wait to help make your stay in Austin absolutely terrific!

Accessible by foot: Austin's Urban Jewels

Zilker Park, Barton Springs, and the Hike and Bike Trail consist of 360 acres on which visitors can ride bikes (bike rental a mile away), hike, rent kayaks or canoes, play volleyball or disk golf, fly kites, or stroll through the botanical gardens. While at the lake you can try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding, the world's fastest growing water sport. Barton Springs Road is home to many bars and restaurants, a putting range, a mini golf course, and a performing arts center. Nearby is the world class Zach Scott Theater, the Austin Nature and Science Center, the famous food trailers, the South Congress boutiques, home to First Thursday, and a spectacular view of the Congress Bridge bats flying at dusk between March and November.

About Tom and Daris Hale

Tom and Daris are artsy musicians that perform with the Austin Symphony, Ballet Austin, and Austin Lyric Opera. We have spent many years performing and living abroad in places such as Italy, Austria, Mexico, Germany, and most recently in Tanzania.

We have two feral children that are relatively house broken and rarely bite. The kids have to attend ballet, opera, and symphony more than they would like and usually resort to hanging with the stage crew. Quite frequently we host foreign exchange students (high school and college) just because we enjoy sharing the best of American culture, like spray-on tans, and dog sweaters. Seriously, we love people and sharing Austin with them. We look forward to hosting you!

Tom and Daris Hale purchased this house in 2012

Why Tom and Daris Hale chose Austin

This property is amazing because it is very private and quiet, yet very close to Austin's finest attractions. You will be closer to ACL than people can park their cars! You can go jogging and then jump into Barton Springs. The greenbelt is great for hiking during the day and 6th Street is fab for evening pleasures. This is a great place if you want to have fun and then retreat to a peaceful accommodation. Then hopefully you will have time to enjoy some coffee from the fancy machine or watch a movie on the large flat screen TV.

What makes this house unique

The views, the quiet wilderness even though you are in the city, the artsy neighborhood, the greenbelt, and of course, Barton Springs-wow! Zilker Park!

Loved your house! We had never been to Austin and we were so impressed with the location. We even took the kids on a bike ride around town. The house was great. My only suggestion– to the very friendly and attentive owners– is that there be a door installed on the upstairs master bedroom to help with noise and privacy. Everything else–from the grand piano, to the formal dining room and lovely porches was perfect. Thanks so much for inviting us to stay in your home. ~Nikki

Owner's Response: Thank you to our kind guests! You all were so conscientious and we appreciate it. The door to the upstairs bedroom was temporarily out for a repair and is now back in its place, new and improved! Thank you, again. Tom and Daris

Tom and Daris went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect summer in Austin. This location was perfect. There are amazing bike paths nearby with swimming at Barton Springs Pools. Also, there are restaurants and a neighborhood grocery store nearby. They let us use their bikes, so we were free to roam! We rode bikes downtown or took a quick Uber ride. We like to cook and it provided everything we needed. Our favorite part about the house was the upstairs back patio. It was the perfect place to enjoy coffee in the morning. Thank you Tom, Daris and family!

Very comfortable and relaxed with amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable environment. Lots of great books, spices in the cabinets and legos for the kids if you have them. Also includes an office area with computer and wifi access if you need to work remotely. Lots of nooks to escape even with a full house. Functions perfectly as a home base.

Wonderful host owners; very accommodating, helpful, easygoing couple. Large comfortable house offers many options for sleeping and nooks for privacy and plenty of bathrooms. Enough space to spread out and be comfortable. AC cooled well despite a large area and large group of guests. Everything in solid working order and arranged for easy access. Outdoor patios and balconies galore. Great kitchen, living, dining area is perfect for entertaining. Having piano was a nice addition and plenty of sheet music available. Easy 1.5 walk to Zilker, coffee house, juice bar, eateries. Nice quite neighborhood area and plenty of street parking available despite the fact that it was UT grad weekend. Everything you need to set up housekeeping fairly immediately. Bring eats and drinks and you are all set. Stairs are required, so must be able to do your steps both indoors and out. Loft style master bedroom does not have a door so that could be an issue for some who may want to shut out the rest of the house. Great stay for our family graduation weekend. Travel to downtown/university - maybe 10 minutes by car. Cab service ran about $8 to UT each way. Really superb stay for us.
