Overview

Austin Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

South Lamar and Zilker combined equal location. Enjoy this mid-century bungalow in the heart of Zilker and South Austin. Decorated with vintage auto posters and other fun stuff.

It’s five minutes by car or cab to downtown. Only a two minute walk to Maria’s Taco’s, Matt’s El Rancho, Mr. Naturral and Irie Bean Coffee Bar. You are also a short walk to Barton Springs and Lady Bird Lake. But really, if you are downtown bound, no car is needed at this address because it’s also just one block from the main Lamar bus line that goes straight to UT and Downtown, cruising past Alamo Draft House, Uchi, Olivia‘s, and Barton Springs on the way. Or, take a cab, it's only three miles to downtown.

The home is two bedroom, one bath with complete kitchen, and dining. Sleeps five with queen beds in each bedroom and a pull out single in the living room. The bathroom is located in a hallway between the bedrooms. Grab dinner from Mr. Natural or Artz, take it home and enjoy a glass of wine on your own patio.

About Rebecca Heston

We love to travel, and it's because of the convenience and fun we have had in staying in vacation rentals by owner that we decided to make the experience availabe for others in this home.

Rebecca Heston purchased this bungalow in 1997

Why Rebecca Heston chose Austin

This home is location friendly and South Austin proud. It's located in the wonderful Barton Hills/Zilker neighborhood which we also call home. We are long time Austinites, and still think the city is one of the best places in the world. Open, friendly, and healthy - great music and lots of good food and fun. As we've watched Austin evolve into an urban destination with an outdoor twist, we thought - why not offer this home as a location that has the best of the lake and the parks but also is in close proximity to downtown? So we did.

What makes this bungalow unique

This is a wonderful house for people with pets. It has a small side yard that is fenced, and lots of sidewalks leading to the informal dog park at Zilker Elementary and on to Zilker Park and LadyBird lake. The house is cozy and perfect for one or two couples.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to share what our New Years guests told us in the guest book: "We loved staying in your place. Thank you for the Christmas lights and the little touches like the poinsettias. We had a great stay, it was wonderful to be able to take a cab inexpensively to downtown. We hope to be back."

Austin stay a success

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this homey place. We enjoyed the location and all the instructions for getting around supplied by our hosts. We used their Wifi and the Car2Go and the Austin Bcycles and enjoyed touring the area. We even managed to cook a pancake breakfast for family one morning and found everything we needed in the kitchen.

Our hosts were consistently courteous and helpful.

Great stay for ACL weekend!

  • of 5

We had a wonderful stay over ACL weekend! The house was perfect for our group of two couples. It was conveniently located, very clean, equipped with everything we needed, and had the cutest little patio area! Becky and Felipe were both incredibly quick to respond to the only (very minor) issue we had, and they even had the place ready for us early. The only downsides were that the pillows weren't very comfortable, and the walk back from ACL was up a very steep hill, but I'm very picky about pillows and usually bring my own, and the hill provided a great workout for us after a day of eating and drinking. Definitely not deal breakers, and we'd love to stay here again!!

Very Warm and Comfy

  • of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The owners were available, attentive and extremely helpful with suggestions, advice, etc. We rented a car for our week’s stay, but the home is very centrally located (just off Lamar) so bus transportation is also an option, with Walgreen’s and some restaurants within easy walking distance. The beds were extremely comfortable, the overhead fans in both bedrooms were a plus and, depending on the season, a little porch off the kitchen can be very enjoyable. Also, a lovely table that can double in size to seat 8+ people came in very handy as well. Overall, it was a homey, comfortable place to stay.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

I was so impressed with this house. Small but big feel. Beautifully done, super clean, very comfortable. Location was perfect, easy to get to and exactly as described. Owner was quite gracious, there were food trucks across the street and close to everything I wanted to do. I will be back!

Perfect little vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation house, fully equipped, nicely decorated, and in a GREAT location! Zilker Park is very close, as well as South Congress district. Lots of places to eat and shop nearby. We had our two kids with us and were very comfortable; everyone had plenty of room. We enjoyed the nice breezy patio! We visit Austin a few times a year and this will be our new place to stay! Enjoy!
