Austin House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6-8! Modern Kitchen and great yard.

Welcome to The Westrock! The latest VacationCake rental home! This 1800 sq ft 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is in a beautifully tucked away neighborhood that offers a perfect family abode that is within 3 miles of everything that Austin has to offer, including downtown, Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, University of Texas and it's also within about 200 yards of The Barton Creek Greenbelt! Oh, and The Broken Spoke is literally two blocks away! Bring your dancin boots!

In the house you have a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen in the second bedroom and two twins in the third. So you can comfortably sleep 6 people in beds. In the living room we have a queen sized fold out couch in case you do end up with 7 or even 8 people.

There are two full bathrooms, each with a shower/tub combo. The kitchen is gorgeous and open to living room, which get's a ton of sunlight. Enjoy the 46' TV in the living room that is connected with the AT&T Uverse U300 Cable package - so you can watch all your favorite shows when you're not dancing at 'the spoke.'

78704ever: Come hang out in the most sought after zip code in Austin, 78704: 'It's more than a zip code, it's a way of life!'

The Broken Spoke: World famous honkey tonk dance hall, literally two blocks away! So bring your boots and get scootin!

So much good food around here, as well. Dozens of great restaurants within walking distance.

You're also within a couple blocks of an entrance to the Barton Creek Greenbelt - which is one of the natural crown jewels of Austin. You can literally hike for miles in the middle of town without even knowing you're in a city. Beautiful stuff and well worth packing a lunch and taking a nice long hike!

When we had a chance to buy this house, I simply had to figure out a way to get it done. I am half of VacationCake Rentals and am thrilled to have this property in our stable

Jay Reynolds and Lauren Bard purchased this house in 2013

This is a fabulous three bedroom home in one of Austin's premier neighborhoods, Barton Hills.

We just had a huge deck built in the back yard! Plus you can walk to lots of great eats. But the best thing: Zilker Park and the Barton Creek Greenbelt is a short distance away.

Beautiful House at a Great Location

This house is simply incredible. I visit Austin on a regular basis, staying in rental houses. The experience with Jay and Vacation Cake at the Westrock house was fantastic. Despite the holiday season, they were responsive to all our needs. The house is beautiful, clean and maintained, and stocked! The outdoor living space and south Austin location are unbeatable. Do yourself a huge favor and rent this property.
Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words and of course come back and see us anytime! I'm thrilled you enjoyed The Westrock and come try another property of ours too sometime!

Cheers,

Jay

I was incredibly impressed with this beautiful house! We originally were going to rent hotel rooms for our party of seven, but knew we needed a place where we could all come together, and hotel rooms just did not provide that. This house is in an ideal location: less than two miles from Sunset Valley, a mile from downtown, and right off Lamar. We never had to travel far for anything we needed! I have rented houses before, but never one so well stocked with items. I always bring my own toiletries, kitchen essentials, etc., but that was not needed. They provided everything! The house was immaculate and beautiful with the most wonderful outdoor space. I will definitely be renting this house again!

We had a wonderful week's stay at the Barton Hills home. We were visiting family nearby and chose to stay in a home rather than hotel (there were 5 of us) and chose the Westrock street property. Home is well maintained, spacious, nice private and quiet location. The owners responded quickly to our needs. We recommend it to anyone travelling under similar circumstances.

This was a great house and perfect for our two small children. The kitchen was bright and well stocked. The house is in a great location and close to restaurants and cool places to visit. We rent houses on a regular basis and this one has been the best.

Great House! Great Service!

My family loved the Westrock house! There were six adults and a one year-old. We thought the house was decorated beautifully, and the location was great. We were close enough to the downtown area, yet far enough removed. The restaurants and bars near by were prefect! (Amy's Ice Cream is a must!) Jay was helpful, answering e-mails and returning calls in a timely fashion! We couldn't have asked for better service. We highly recommend this property or any others that are rented through Vacation Cake!

I had a small group of friends who stayed at the Westrock property in Barton Hills. The house was fully stocked and everything was ready to go for us. Vacation cake staff was very helpful and accomodating. The austin rental market is full of high priced rentals, but this one was absolutely the best value in town.

The Westrock perfectly suited our needs. We had 6 family members in town for UT graduation and it was the perfect spot to gather. The house was impeccably clean! The kitchen was well stocked. We especially appreciated having coffee beans and a coffee grinder in the kitchen, plus shampoo, conditioner and body wash in both showers. So very thoughtful!

My stay at the Westrock was wonderful. My girlfriends and I had to find a place very last minute and Vacation Cake was very accommodating. Jay was easy to communicate with and I enjoyed working with him. It was a beautiful home and I loved how close we were to the Zilker Park and South Congress area of austin - the Westrock was easy to find as well. The kitchen was stocked with cooking equipment, coffee, dinnerware, glassware and condiments, which was great for when we made breakfast. The check-in and check-out was really laid back and easy, which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend this house and Vacation Cake to anyone.

Perfect place for Austin Getaway!

I recently stayed here with some friends for an Austin getaway and birthday celebration. Lauren and Jay the property managers were very nice and very friendly to work with. We arrived to a perfectly ready house. The house was very clean - clean towels, bed sheets, showers, bathrooms, kitchen and etc. There were 5 of us and 2 dogs that stayed and it was very roomy - you could even have 2 more people stayed and it wouldn't feel cramped. Location was good - very close to downtown, barton springs and congress. Not walking distance but just a short drive. Lots of food around the area for anything you are craving.

This was our first experience using homeaway - and what a great experience it was. Would definitely do again when we come back! Thanks again Jay and Lauren for making this such a great stay!!
