Amazing place to stay, wonderfully appointed, fantastic sanctuary – highly recommended!
We stayed in this lovely Barton Heights/Zilker home during our time at SXSW interactive, and we could not have been more pleased with the experience. The house – as good as it looks in the pictures on this site – is even better in person, and the owner is beyond helpful and accommodating.
Situated in a beautiful neighborhood that is at once secluded and quiet and surprisingly convenient, the house served as a welcome sanctuary from the craziness of the conference. The large, well-appointed kitchen and outdoor grill provided an ideal venue for cooking with a large group. The inner yard and covered deck is just the perfect place to relax.
Being so close to the walking/biking/running paths of Zilker Park and along Barton Creek was a real highlight. Though there are buses that provide an easy link to downtown and the convention center area, we mostly walked – it was so incredibly pleasant to stroll along the river. If you are a paddling fan, or just want to get out out on the water for a bit, you can rent kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and more small watercraft an easy walk from the house.
I really can't even express how great it was to stay in this comfortable, well-cared-for, and generous house. I hope to have another chance to stay here in the future.

Owner's Response: This house attracts wonderful guests. It brings such great pleasure to have people enjoy this place. I will sell the house some day and I will miss all the wonderful interactions I've had with beautiful people looking for a beautiful place to stay.
