Overview

Austin Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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."

Such a great place to stay for SXSW. Close to great places to eat and really affordable for the location to downtown. Just 15 minutes on the bus which is very regular. will definitely look to stay again when I come back for SXSW again.

Thanks again

Austin stay at Arpdale

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal location for our needs, while staying in Austin. Close to 6th street, downtown and UT with plentiful dining experiences close by as well. It is a great home. Everything you need is provided to make you feel that you are in your own home. Loved the pillows and comfortable beds. We all slept very well. Kitchen is well equipped and the patio was just a nice space to have your morning coffee. The convenience of location was perfect. Pharmacies, food, and libations close by. The house was extremely comfortable for my son, myself and my son's fiancée. We all said upon leaving just how special this experience was and what a great place to stay. I would definitely make sure you put this one high on the list, and really at the top. The owners are good people and if you need something they are very accessible. Overall a great place to stay while in Austin. I better stop with all the nice things to say - they may raise the price. I did mention it was very reasonably priced didn't I? Loved it and would highly recommend. -Todd

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.
