Guestbook comments from the owner
I cannot say enough good things about my stay here. Mary is an amazing host - gracious, thoughtful and accommodating. She made sure we felt right at home. Her attention to detail made for a comfortable and relaxed stay - from the many toys, books and crib waiting for my 10 month old to the fully stocked kitchen and bathroom to the carefully curated selection of magazines. She even dropped off some olive oil and spices - just in case. Honestly, I would live here if I could! Bright and modern and, above all, CLEAN. It was tastefully decorated and spacious.



Great location. Walking distance to some awesome eats (Barley Swine, Lick Ice Cream) and a short drive to a dozen more restaurants and food trailers. Loved being so close to Zilker Park.



Really made for an excellent stay in Austin!

Lifelong Austinite. Professional photographer and tech nerd. I love hanging out with my family and working on old houses.

Mary Sledd purchased this house in 2011

We purchased this house condemned and forclosed. We spent more than a year getting working on it - doing much of the work ourselves. We could not ask for a better location to enjoy Austin from.

Close to TONS of great Austin attractions. Quite and clean. Nice layout and furnishings.

GREAT PLACE, GREAT HOST

  • 5 of 5
The house was clean, modern, and charming. Very comfortable too. We enjoyed playing with our fifteen-month-old son in the fenced in front yard. It was with in walking distance to a few great restaurants. The neighborhood was cool too. Mary was very hospitable and went above and beyond, stopping by the house to bring us a lamp and a humidifier for our son. She also stocked the house with toys and a crib. Thank you Mary!

We have rented on VRBO many times, I must say this is one of the very best. The owner was very helpful. The location is in the heart of Austin with access to many activities. We will rent this property again on a future visit to Austin.

PERFECTLY AUSTIN

  • 5 of 5
We love the Zilker House! Located in the heart of funky South Austin, it is within walking distance to breakfast tacos, BBQ, two-stepping and Barton Springs. The house itself was clean, modern, bright and peaceful. A great place to put your feet up after a long day exploring all that Austin has to offer. Mary, the homeowner, was extremely sweet and helpful during our stay. The Zilker House was a perfectly Austin experience and we will definitely be back soon!
