Overall the home was very nice. The location was perfect to reach the downtown area and still enjoy the solitude of nature. My one complaint is with the owner. We had a bad experience with her and found her to be accusatory and emotionally unstable regarding a problem that arose in the last day. I would not consider returning to this rental. I will say that her husband was very accommodating as we had multiple problems with the tv. And he showed up to try to help. I would try to deal mostly with him.

Owner's Response: It is rare that we have unhappy guest. We strive to provide the highest level of customer service to our guests which our reviews reflect. Unfortunately, in this instance, the guest did not check out on their day of departure which created confusion with the cleaning staff who locked the property while they were out. In spite of this fact, we paid a locksmith to open the house so the guest could get back inside. We also agreed to reschedule our cleaning staff for the following morning and allowed the guest to stay an additional night so they would not have to find new accommodations.

The Zilker Tree House was perfect for the six of us. The location was great. Within easy walking distance to Barton Springs Pool, and more; and a quick drive to the downtown area, SOCO and Lamar. The House has everything you need and the owner is totally accessible by email and phone. We had a wonderful time and will definitely stay there again .

Thrilled!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with the Tree House! Exceptional location, a short walk to Zilker Park, Barton Springs Greenbelt, shopping and dining area and a very short bus or cab ride downtown. The house has everything and more we needed for our stay. How was very very clean and well cared for. Thanks for a great stay!

Enjoyable Stay.

  • 4 of 5

Nice and clean condo. Bathroom supplies plentiful. Comfortable accommodation. Kitchen smaller than expected, some cabinet drawers cannot be opened properly. Only one night stand in master bedroom. Wished to have more trash bins and kleenex.

All in all, a lovely stay. Thank you.

Great Austin Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here in April and the place was great. A true Austin experience. The house has everything you need and walkable to all Barton Springs restaurants. The property manager was great and quick to respond. I will stay here again in the future. I highly recommend this property.
