The two bedroom “Kaleido House” features original art and colorful decor to go along with the spacious vaulted natural wood vaulted ceilings. The master bedroom features a comfy King bed and the 2nd bedroom has 2 X-long twins. The couch in the living room is a Queen sleeper. Highlighting the cedar lined bathroom is a 200 gallon double shower/hot tub with skylight*. Located just two blocks from Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool, the Kaleido House is the perfect home base to enjoy everything that Austin has to offer. There is easy walking access to many of Austin’s famous restaurants as well as the outdoor paradise that is Zilker Park. Take a dip in the 68 degree waters of Barton Springs after enjoying a hike through the Barton Creek Greenbelt or a stroll around Lady Bird Lake. After a day outdoors, you’re only a short walk back! Upon request, the 2nd bedroom's 2 X-long twin beds can be set up as a King Bed.
The tall ceilings are awesome: the vaulted beamed knotty pine wood ceilings make the over 1000 square feet seem even bigger. The kitchen is fully equipped to handle cooking big meals, and the Whole Foods world headquarters is a short drive away. Several convenience stores are even closer.
Other amenities include: Fresh locally roasted organic coffee and fixings, washer/dryer and detergent, bath and beach towels, and a Brita water filter to keep fresh water in the refrigerator.
Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park(closed for repairs until March, 2013): We are located less than two blocks from the single best swimming pool in the universe, Barton Springs. Located in the heart of Zilker Park, use our beach towels and enjoy the spring fed, chlorine-free waters of this over 1/8 mile long watering hole.
Also enjoy the hike and bike trail, boating on the river, frisbee golf, the Nature Center, the Botanical Gardens, the playground and the train for the kids or a picnic on the great lawn.
Downtown Austin: I'm sure you've heard of the madness on 6th Street, but certainly don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, 2nd Street, 4th Street and then West 6th Street. Then see a movie while eating dinner or just having a drink at Austin's favorite theater, the Alamo Drafthouse.
*Disclosure: the tub/shower is a little hard to get out of if you have disabilities, such as bad knees, and it wouldn't be convenient for bathing small children. Please call to discuss your particular situation before booking this house.
