About the property

Retreat-type rental right in the midst of Barton Hills. Private Hot tub included

Welcome to The Austinite!

This is a lovely 2/1 that is quintessentially Austin. Tucked away in Barton HIlls, one of Austin’s favorite neighborhoods, this property features an enclosed bamboo garden with an outdoor shower and hot tub. It honestly doesn’t get much cooler.

Then up the stairs to the front deck, which has the feel of a treehouse because you’re at the tops of the 30-foot high bamboo and just beneath the canopy of surrounding trees. There’s two bedrooms, one queen bed and one king.

The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you could want to cook a feast. Basic spices, oil, and all the pots and pans you’d need. There is also a grill on the front deck.

Towels and linens are of course included, with extras available as well. In the bathroom, you’ll find Dove shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Bring some flip flops so you can enjoy the outdoor’s a great way to start the day!

$160/weeknight, $210 weekend night - $1000/weekly

About Jay Reynolds

I'm a life-long Austinite and that is definitely part of the reason I choose to call this property The Austinite!

Jay Reynolds purchased this house in 2013

Why Jay Reynolds chose Austin

This property encompasses so much of what makes Austin awesome. You can walk and bike to dozens of restaurants, Zilker Park and The Barton Creek Greenbelt!

What makes this house unique

The hot tub area is incredible and being so close to S. Lamar is a major plus. Also, we have two other rental units that actually share a driveway so if you have a larger group we can definitely accommodate!

Great location near South Lamar Street. If Vonnegut and Bill Murray occupy your shrine of intellectual giants then this is the place for you! Fabulous host with a knack for punk rockers ;-)

Relaxing Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the New Year's weekend and absolutely loved it! We were looking for a calm and relaxing place to get away, which is certainly what we found. The property was neat and clean and also felt warm and welcoming when we arrived. Everything we needed was there and the hot tub was ready to go! There is also an extensive collection of books, games, and records - a nice break from phone and computer screens - that helped make this feel like a true retreat! The neighborhood is quiet, but very close to Lamar Street where we visited several restaurants and bars. The vibe is funky but chill, and felt very "Austin" without the craziness of downtown and the 6th St. area (where we'd planned to go, but ended up changing our minds once we saw what was nearby!). Jay was a wonderful host, responsive to our needs, and clearly prides himself on maintaining a property that's comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay in this property again!

Emmaculate, bright and cheery, a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

The property is so comfortable, clean, very private, and welcoming inside and out. It is located in a safe clean neighborhood, close to Zilker Park, and Town Lake. It is in walking distance to some wonderful restaurants, shopping, the famous Broken Spoke, The Mail Store, and much more. The boys, 1 & 3 had a wonderful time especially in the big swinging chair, and investigating the bamboo area. We will be contacting this owner again to rent not only this home, but also Unit A in front when we have a group of family arrive to Austin. A+ and so much better than a hotel. Thank you so very much for having us in your rental.

A gem in South Austin!

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO to find places to stay all over the place - Broken Bow OK, Sonoma CA, Panama City FL, and even Paris - and I don't think I've ever stayed at one as attuned to making guests comfortable as the Austinite. Everything you possibly could have needed was there down to milk and sugar for the coffee. The owner stayed in touch with us before and throughout our stay and answered our minor questions almost immediately via email. The house is super charming and very "Austin" in decor and feels like you are in your own oasis while only being blocks from all the fun on South Lamar! The hot tub and outdoor shower were great. We wish we could have stayed longer and are already making plans to return the next time we head that way!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

It took us moments to fall in love with this place. Perfect size for four adults and there were so many extras in the property. Very close to downtown and plenty of eateries around. The hot tub was clean and hot and easy to operate. My husband and I had the king bed and it was very comfortable. Will definitely request this property again!

More good food than you can ever eat in one trip!
Car: recommended

The Austinite Unit B is located in the heart of Barton Hills, just three miles to downtown and just a few blocks from so many amazing restaurants and fun things to do off South Lamar!

First and foremost the Barton Creek Greenbelt: there is a neighborhood entrance just two blocks away! You can hike the day away and never know you're in the middle of a city. It's truly amazing down there.

For food and drink: Kerbey Lane Cafe, Torchy's Taco's, Amy's Ice Cream, East Side King, Gordough's Public House, Bakers Street Pub, Thundercloud Subs, Papalote Taco House, and SO many more than are literally just a hop skip and a jump away.

Just two blocks to Art on 5th - which is an art gallery that features the largest collection of original Dr Suess paintings and drawing in the world.

If you're not driving in and not wanting to rent a car, the CapMetro bus lines are fabulous for getting in and around downtown, and there are bus stops less than two blocks away to scoot up Lamar.

There is a great farmers market on Saturday just a 10 minute walk!

If golf is your thing: I used to play professionally (toured 2005-2010 full time) and I still have connections at several great courses. So let me know for sure if you're bringing your clubs and maybe I'll even try to come fill the foursome if I can!

This is a fabulous neighborhood with tons of character and the location is a perfect doorstep to everything that makes Austin what it is.
