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.

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!

Cozy Retreat Near Heart of Austin

  • 4 of 5

The Tree House is a very comfortable top-floor condominium adjacent to Zilker Park. It has a nice master bedroom with king bed and another room with a queen. Basically has everything you could need for a short or long stay: well stocked kitchen and bathroom, big screen TV, nice furniture, heating and a/c. Deck has views into the park and neighborhood. Very convenient location for exploring all that Austin has to offer, with nearby restaurants and shops, and walking trails along the river. We really enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review - we hope to see you back again soon! I wanted to be sure that it was clear that the 2nd bedroom only has a full size bed, not a queen size, for future guests.

Perfect Home Base for Austin Visit!

  • 5 of 5

What a cute place, and so convenient to downtown and other parts of Austin! The condo was very pretty, very clean and nicely decorated, and the perfect size for our family of 4. Love the view from the balcony and just a comfortable place to stay. I'm not gonna lie...the angled parking was a little intimidating at first, but we Ubered most everywhere so it was fine. It was nice being able to park so close to the easy steps up to the condo. The hosts were very responsive in the rental process and accommodating with our stay. I would highly recommend the Tree House and hope to be able to rent it again sometime. Thank you to the Reynolds!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed staying in the Treehouse. It sounds like you were able to maneuver our driveway and parking, even though it has some humps due to the hill it was built on, which is also why we have such a nice view from the patio. We look forward to having you back in the Treehouse or one of our other rentals sometime soon.
