Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious apartment in restored 1940's era house

Our spacious 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment occupies the entire second story of a restored stone house built in the 1940's. It offers a roomy, separate study, hardwood floors, loads of natural light and vintage charm.

You can rent the treetop suite to sleep 2, or you can combine it with one or both of the downstairs units to sleep a total of 4 or 6. To see the downstairs units, please enter their listing numbers in the VRBO search bar: 442385 (1 bedroom unit) and 423250 (studio).

All 3 units have clean, crisp linens, quality furnishings, and original art. Our WiFi connection is good, and the landscaped patios are a great place to enjoy the quiet of an established Austin neighborhood only five minutes from downtown or the SoCo district, and walking distance from the increasingly popular South Lamar ('SOLA') district.

We offer bikes for you to explore the many things to do near the house. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, check out the greenbelt along Barton Creek or Barton Springs Pool--each about a mile away. If you are looking for great food, you are just around the corner from the iconic Matt's El Rancho and the fabulous 'Restaurant Row' on Barton Springs Road. Walk to the ACL music festival or enjoy live outdoor summer theater at Zilker Park. Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Zilker Botanical Garden are beautiful places to explore and picnic. At the end of the day, dance to live country music at the locally-famous hole in the wall--the Broken Spoke. Or check out the HighBall retro bowling alley/karaoke bar and neighboring Alamo Drafthouse Cinema--uniquely Austin experiences.

If you want to venture outside the neighborhood, we're also close to the University of Texas and the Highland Lakes just west of town. We are happy to recommend things to do and places to see.

About Ann Giles

We are a husband and wife who love old houses. We were each restoring our own old house when we met in 1998. We now have 4 young children and have left our 'real jobs' behind to pursue restoring old houses full time. We're so thrilled to get to offer our homes to you through VRBO!

Ann Giles purchased this house in 1998

Why Ann Giles chose Austin

Location and character. Close to downtown, yet nestled in a quiet, established neighborhood with mature trees and great opportunities to explore nature. A unique structure--beautiful natural stone and concrete block construction originally built as a carriage house but easily converted to unique rental apartments.

What makes this house unique

Original, natural building materials give the house character and soul. Clean and manicured outdoor areas extend the enjoyable space of the apartments. Clean and crisp linens and furnishings make for a relaxing and enjoyable retreat.

A great experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Treetop Suite for three nights and loved our stay. The apartment is very spacious and light ( lots of windows) and very tastefully decorated. It is immaculately clean and quiet.We also welcomed thoughtful amenities such as nice shower gel, sparkling water, Starbucks coffee and fruit.

The bedroom is cozy and the bed is really comfortable. Although we didn't cook, the kitchen is big enough and well appointed to do so. For us the location is perfect as it is only three blocks away from our daughter's house. The neighborhood is charming and within short distance of restaurants, drugstore and coffee shops. We look forward to staying there again.

Perfection!

  • of 5

Ann and Scott have provided everything for the perfect getaway. This property is beautifully decorated and everything we needed was provided. Each of the 3 units has it's own private patio. Even the off street parking is beautifully landscaped. I especially loved the reading room. The bed was comfy. We were here a week in fairly cold weather and did not feel at all closed in on the days we chose to spend more time in the apartment. The location is great for exploring Austin. The information booklet was also very helpful. Our only complaint is the low water pressure in the shower...a small detail given that our week long stay was perfect in every other way.

Amazing Stay at the Treetop Suite

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was much shorter (1 night for NYE) than we would've liked. This was where we (a couple bridesmaids and I) stayed the night before heading to my wedding venue for the Big Day, and it was the perfect way to be ushered into the wedding weekend. This little gem was the cutest house in the neighborhood. It was very comfortable, clean and accommodating with the nice sized kitchen and spacious bedroom and living room. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. The owners were very gracious as we asked many questions and had several requests. Thank you for your wonderful customer service!

absolutely accurate

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved these accommodations. The treetop suite was nicely appointed and very comfortable. We felt right at home. Our host was easy to contact, but never hovered. We also loved the neighborhood and the proximity to Barton Springs. In addition, our cleaning deposit was returned within one day of our departure. No muss and no fuss, a great travel experience. I would happily return in a heart beat.

Minnesota Visitor

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at the property for a week over the holiday. The unit was clean and nicely appointed.

It is located in a quiet neighborhood only a block or two off South Lamar which has many restaurants and a short drive to downtown Austin or easy access to Ben White Blvd. In addition the airport is 15-20 minutes away which was very convenient.

The owners were very responsive during my stay and prior to arrival. Highly recommend this property for quiet neighborhood and close proximity to DT Austin.

Car: not necessary

We are only 5 minutes from downtown, yet nestled in the quiet of an established Austin neighborhood. We have bikes to explore all there is to see and do within just minutes of the house, including the Barton Creek greenbelt, Zilker Park (home to Barton Springs pool and various festivals and outdoor theater), excellent restaurants and shops, and local night spots like the Broken Spoke and the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. In fact there is so much to see and do in our area that we have published a neighborhood guide for our guests.
