The Zilker Barn is a quite oasis near downtown. The house has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Within easy walking distance of a dozen restaurants and a short bike ride from Barton Springs, South Congress, Downtown and Lady Bird Lake the house is very well situated for all Austin has to offer. There is one off street parking spot available in the shared driveway and lots of street parking. We also have a set of 6 loaner bikes.
With four bedrooms the house most comfortably fits 8 adults. One king room, two queen rooms, and a room with twin bunks and a trundle. One living area has a daybed, and the other living room has a sofa that converts to a full bed. An inflatable full bed available upon request. Each bed has high thread count linens and ample pillows. We also have a roll away crib and a high chair if you are traveling a baby.
The kitchen has been recently remodeled and has a full sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, and a tea kettle. Lots of dishes, glasses, pots and pans are also available.
Both bathrooms have walk in showers. The hot water is on demand on we provide ample fresh towels. The house has a washer/dryer if you need to freshen your clothes during your stay.
The living room is equipped with a cable TV , free wifi, and lots of magazines.
For larger groups we also have another rental property with two bedrooms that is available next door. Parties and gatherings are not permitted at this rental. The owners live less than a block away and are available to help with questions or maintenance issues.
Our house is licensed by the City of Austin as an STR, and we pay hotel occupancy taxes.

Mary Sledd purchased this barn in 2012
Zilker House is perfectly situated to enjoy Austin. We are close to many restaurants, bars and outdoor areas. Our house has been very lovingly restored and is both modern and charming.

The Zilker Barn is a great place for a group to stay in Austin! Our group of 8 adults fit comfortably in the home. The location is absolutely superb (walking distance from food, bars, and shopping) and the home was immaculate. I definitely recommend the Zilker Barn for any group staying in Austin. Mary is very quick to respond and was a pleasure to work with!
We rented both the Zilker Barn and the front house (#499147) and could not have asked for a more perfect location for a girls-reunion weekend! With 12 girls, the two homes provided more then enough space to relax, sleep comfortably in beds, enjoy a morning cup of coffee and so much more! The state of the arts kitchens (3), 3 bathrooms, 3 washer and dryers, beds for 15+, and large yards provided a true vacation home feel (note, the barn offers 2 kitchens/bathrooms, the additional listing offers 1 kitchen/bathroom). I would move in tomorrow if I could. The house is wonderfully located just off of South Lamar offering quick access to restaurants, food trucks, south congress shopping, zilker park, barton springs, lady bird lake, corner bar and night life. The house was BEAUTIFUL and offered a luxurious, comfortable, clean place to rest after a full day of activities. Mary was the most wonderful hostess that responded quickly to all of our questions and concerns when booking the trip. We will be back! Thank you Zilker Barn for a memorable weekend! I promise you will not be disappointed if you rent this home!
A group of us were in Austin for a conference and chose to stay at Mary's lovely rental instead of a hotel, and we were very glad we did. We rented both houses and it was extremely roomy, emmaculate and comfortable. The furnishings are excellent quality, the beds and linens are dreamy, and there is absolutely everything you need for a home away from home experience (including a great DVD and book collection). A fantastic bonus is the availability of bicycles, which we used to cruise around the neighborhood and circle the lake on Austin's amazing bike path.
Thanks Mary for making our first time in Austin so enjoyable. We can't wait to go back!
Visited Austin from NYC for a girl's getaway. The Zilker House is perfectly located! About a 10-15 drive from the airport and plenty to do within walking distance (Mary provides a book filled with things to do and restaurants in the area). It's only a short drive or bike ride to South Congress Ave and downtown Austin. The house was bright and sunny, very clean and comfortable...loved the décor! Enjoyed my morning coffee sitting outside in the front yard. It's a very nice place to come back to after long days of exploring the city!
