DOWNTOWN, BARTON SPRINGS MINUTES AWAY - 78704 LOCATION

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."

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!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We love the location and are so happy that you did too and that it suited your needs. The walk-ability of the house makes it a fun place to stay, but its convenience to downtown Austin, UT and Mopac is also a plus.

Please come back and stay again, we appreciate guests like you!

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!

Biggest pluses: 1. Comfortable mattresses; 2. Very responsive, helpful hosts; 3. Near very cool stuff (food trucks, coffee shops, some of the best restaurants in town); 4. Driveway, patio, all your basic needs. Hope to stay there again.

Wonderful location!

The location was truly convenient for us, and the house was as pictured. Nothing fancy, but very clean and everything we needed was provided. The property owners were friendly and helpful. We would recommend this location to friends/family.

What a sweet, charming, lovely stay

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this very wonderful home for a few nights and can't imagine staying anywhere else for future visits.

The house is absolutely as described - I so appreciated some of the small but very helpful comforts the owners made sure were in place. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and I used it often; I loved having fast internet and ample places to sit and work, including the front porch, which ended up being my favorite place to hang out. Beds were comfortable and I loved how each room was so welcoming while still leaving a feeling of space to unpack/settle. I didn't use the TV/Cable but it was good to know it was available.

The location is absolutely perfect for those wanting to stay close to Zilker, etc. - and getting downtown and to other areas was really easy. The house is right off of the main road but far enough that traffic noise and such isn't really an issue. Just down the street are some awesome places to eat, like Gourdough's and Kirby Lane Cafe, all in walking distance. There was a very helpful house guide with other suggestions of where to eat and how to get around that I really appreciated, although I didn't have enough time to try them all.

But best of all are the owners - I had a chance to meet and chat with Becky and felt so welcome then and in the future! The communication before and during my stay was so important and I felt really comfortable about reserving a stay here. I'll be back, and would recommend this place to any mature and responsible folks who want a clean, comfortable, convenient place to settle in during a trip. This is definitely my first choice of places to stay for future trips, and I hope to visit again soon! Thank you so much Becky!
