BEAUTIFULLY UPDATED 3/2 HOME IN BARTON HILLS WITH BIG PRIVATE BACK DECK

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6-8! Modern kitchen, king bed, beautiful back deck.

Welcome to The Westrock! This 1800 sq ft 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is in a tucked away in the Barton Hills neighborhood that offers a perfect family abode that is within 3 miles of everything that Austin has to offer, including downtown, Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, University of Texas and it's also within about a quarter mile of The Barton Creek Greenbelt! Oh, and The Broken Spoke is literally two blocks away! Bring your dancin boots!

In the house you have a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen in the second bedroom and two twins in the third. So you can comfortably sleep 6 people in beds. In the living room we have a queen sized fold out couch in case you do end up with 7 or even 8 people.

There are two full bathrooms, each with a shower/tub combo. The kitchen is gorgeous and open to living room, which get's a ton of sunlight. Enjoy the 46' TV in the living room that is connected with the AT&T Uverse U300 Cable package - so you can watch all your favorite shows when you're not dancing at 'the spoke.' This includes The Longhorn Network

78704ever: Come hang out in the most sought after zip code in Austin, 78704: 'It's more than a zip code, it's a way of life!'

The Broken Spoke: World famous honkey tonk dance hall, literally two blocks away! So bring your boots and get scootin!

So much good food around here, as well. Dozens of great restaurants within walking distance.

You're also within a couple blocks of an entrance to the Barton Creek Greenbelt - which is one of the natural crown jewels of Austin. You can literally hike for miles in the middle of town without even knowing you're in a city. Beautiful stuff and well worth packing a lunch and taking a nice long hike!

Public transport is easy and we have a private charter vehicle available as well.

Guestbook comments from the manager
I was incredibly impressed with this beautiful house! We originally were going to rent hotel rooms for our party of seven, but knew we needed a place where we could all come together, and hotel rooms just did not provide that. This house is in an ideal location: less than two miles from Sunset Valley, a mile from downtown, and right off Lamar. We never had to travel far for anything we needed! I have rented houses before, but never one so well stocked with items. I always bring my own toiletries, kitchen essentials, etc., but that was not needed. They provided everything! The house was immaculate and beautiful with the most wonderful outdoor space. I will definitely be renting this house again!

When we had a chance to buy this house, I simply had to figure out a way to get it done. I am half of VacationCake Rentals and am thrilled to have this property in my stable

Julia Bower purchased this house in 2013

This is a fabulous three bedroom home in one of Austin's premier neighborhoods, Barton Hills.

We just had a huge deck built in the back yard! Plus you can walk to lots of great eats. But the best thing: Zilker Park and the Barton Creek Greenbelt is a short distance away.

Home Away from Home in the Heart of Texas

  • 5 of 5
This is truly a home away from home. You open the front door and immediately you know you made the right decision. A spacious dining and living room with a well equipped kitchen. The master bedroom has an on suite bathroom so you can close the door and the kids can have the other bedrooms. However, the greatest part of this house is the backyard and deck. Just make your morning coffee and sit outside. It is a little piece of heaven in the city of Austin. If need be, bring your pet! They will love the backyard! Location is great as well. You are moments away from Kerby Lane, the Broken Spoke and Wheatsville. And just minutes to downtown Austin and SoCo. I highly recommend Westrock. It was perfect for our family.

Beautiful House at a Great Location

  • 5 of 5
This house is simply incredible. I visit Austin on a regular basis, staying in rental houses. The experience with Jay and Vacation Cake at the Westrock house was fantastic. Despite the holiday season, they were responsive to all our needs. The house is beautiful, clean and maintained, and stocked! The outdoor living space and south Austin location are unbeatable. Do yourself a huge favor and rent this property.

Perfect place for Austin Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed here with some friends for an Austin getaway and birthday celebration. Lauren and Jay the property managers were very nice and very friendly to work with. We arrived to a perfectly ready house. The house was very clean - clean towels, bed sheets, showers, bathrooms, kitchen and etc. There were 5 of us and 2 dogs that stayed and it was very roomy - you could even have 2 more people stayed and it wouldn't feel cramped. Location was good - very close to downtown, barton springs and congress. Not walking distance but just a short drive. Lots of food around the area for anything you are craving.

This was our first experience using homeaway - and what a great experience it was. Would definitely do again when we come back! Thanks again Jay and Lauren for making this such a great stay!!

'The Westrock' is located just south of downtown Austin, in the Barton Hills neighborhood (one of Austin's finest!). The Barton Creek Greenbelt is just a couple block away and Zilker Park is about a mile and half away, all through the neighborhood!

Also, don't forget about Austin's most famous honkey tonk dance club: The Broken Spoke - less than two blocks away. You can even pull that off in your boots, I reckon!

Some nearby eats: Kerbey Lane Cafe, Torchy's Tacos, Papalote Tacos, Thundercloud Subs, Phoenicia Bakery and Deli, and dozens more.

Nearby drinks: Gordoughs Public House, Baker St Pub, Park Sports Bar, Pluckers.

Public transport is easy if you won't be having a car - there's bus stops just out on Lamar. Easy access.
