Oh my! The only thing I really don't like about this place is I only had it a week! I will leave behind some of my most peaceful memories, deepest laughs with friends and a little piece of my heart!

This has been many people’s personal favorite for one reason: the view. There’s nothing like waking up every morning and feeling the sun shining through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room while you sip your coffee and contemplate the day. It literally feels like your up in a treehouse. The covered patio is a great place to enjoy the fresh air and view from also. This unit features two bedrooms and a “Hollywood” bathroom, which has a second sink/vanity in the Master Bedroom that can be closed off from the main bathroom. This is the perfect place for a family coming to enjoy what Austin has to offer or could house up to two couples for a music festival or a weekend out on the town. There is a king bed in the master and a full-size bed in the smaller second bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the essentials, such as coffee maker, coffee & grinder, water boiler, toaster, blender, cookware, etc.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Perfect all around

  • 5 of 5

The tree house was all and more as it was described and shown in pictures. This place was in pristine condition, stalked with some extras, had a "concierge basket" of info and maps. Decorated with just amount of furniture inside and out with tons of place to put our stuff. Well Done! SO easy to get any where with Uber, bike rental and walking. Felt at home walking to market at night, great neighborhood.

We hit the hot days and even enjoyed the fireplace after a long bike ride. The deck is defiantly "Tree House living" with all the birds and squirrels putting on quit the show and the city in the distance..THANK YOU for sharing

Great Rental with Private Deck

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we read about in the reviews and saw in the pictures--a great getaway spot with a private deck to enjoy our morning coffee and breakfast. It was a quick easy walk to Barton Springs and Zilker park and a little bit of a longer walk to some restaurants and food carts. The location was very convenient to get to downtown as well. We loved that we didn't have to do a lot of work before leaving--just the dishes! The rental came with a binder full of ideas for eating and doing so we didn't have to look anything up which was nice! GO TO TORCHY'S!!!!

We'll be back! Great for families.

  • 5 of 5

Had a spectacular stay with our 2.5 year old a 2.5 month old. The owners were great about answering questions prior to booking, after booking and throughout our stay. They are total pros and shows. They let us borrow a pack n play, a high chair, and bed rails for our stay which made things so much easier.

An easy 2 block walk to Zilker Park and so close to everything. You feel like you're right near the heart of the action, yet it's a quiet retreat. I also love how eco-friendly the amenities are!

Owner's Response: Even though we don't meet all our guests, it was a pleasure meeting your family and hearing about your adventures with the little ones. Glad it was a good last week of maternity leave and that we could make it more pleasant for you. Hope to see you again soon!
