One of Austin's premier mountain biking, hiking, trail running and rock climbing destinations. This 8 mile long, 809 acre greenbelt begins less than 1/4 a mile away from our front door. Beautiful and fun in any season. During wet weather the creek is a kayak, tubing and swimming destination with numerous small waterfalls and fun rapids.
Austin's Hike and Bike Trail:
Easy access to downtown. No cars on this waterfront trail, 1/2 block from our front door. Popular with bikers, walkers and joggers. Trees and wildflowers provide shade and beauty along this 10.3 mile trail which loops around the lake. Several pedestrian bridges cross into downtown with access points to live music venues, restaurants, shopping, museums, concert halls, the opera house and beyond. Don't miss the Congress Avenue Bridge, home to the largest Urban Bat Colony in the world!
Austin is the Live Music Capital of the World! Sixth street, Rainey Street and the Warehouse District is a 10 minute drive from Zilker Park Place.

This is me in my art car. I have been a professional intuitive since 1993 and have teaching intuition classes since 1995. Presently I hold dating workshops and relationship support groups throughout the year. Somehow over the years I have become a relationship expert and have yet to find a question that I can’t answer. I enjoy local theatre and the film festivals and have found a great outlet for my reviews at the austinpost. I live in the neighborhood less than a mile from the rental. I am known for having one of the most colorful houses in this very eclectic neighborhood. The yard has been featured on the local yard art tour. The art car pictured above is my fourth. It is “Carsmos” which is decorated with a sea theme, the solar system, the city of Austin, and the different regions of earth on the hood. I am the female in the photo and my life partner is the male, who is also an artist. We have travelled a bit (mostly the U.S. and Europe) and the photos throughout the rental are ours. Color makes me feel alive and the color in the rental and in our photography is a reflection of that passion. My motto is “if there is still twenty minutes, there is time to see a museum”. Having studied art history and gone on four art history tours of Europe, I have been fortunate to have seen some of the very best European Masters and some of the greatest museums in the world. I couldn’t be happier.
The Owner purchased this townhome in 1990
I purchased the Four-Plex because of the incredible location and the highly desirable neighborhood. Although it looks like it might be a busy street, it is quiet and peaceful. I enjoy the greenery and the old trees everywhere. It is hard to get much closer to the park or to the back entrance of our famous Barton Springs Pool. It is our natural treasure. The unit is in a residential neighborhood but only blocks away are some of the best Austin restaurants located on Barton Springs Rd. Everything is close. There is no need to start a hike on Lady Bird Lake’s Hike and Bike trail when just walking out the door will add less than a mile extra to the run…one way of course. I lived in one of the units in 1990. It was hard to leave but fortunately I didn’t have to go too far. The neighbors are great and if you say “hi” they will always greet you with a big smile. Not only that but I’m sure they won’t mind helping with directions. After all, it is the Austin way.
I have lived in Austin for over 35 years. I have great tourist advice. If you want to know the coolest things to do during your stay just ask. She can tell you how to reach me. Honestly, it would be hard to be in a better location, in a more comfortable environment, surrounded by the best that Austin has to offer. Have a cup of coffee, sit back, read, watch TV, or do nothing. Better yet enjoy the best of everything that Austin has to offer. It is just around the corner. You can drive, take the bus, or bike anywhere. After all my travels I still believe Austin is the best city on the planet.
Beautiful apartment and so close to Zilker / Barton Springs. I went running on the trails every day. The 2-block proximity to nature and the lake really made this work trip feel almost like vacation. Also, the grill on the patio works just great! Thank you Lois!
Zilker park place is a great house in a great location. My husband are returning guests and we will definitely book again. The house is very well equipped, very comfortable, clean and well maintained. Lois is an excellent hostess and is keen to ensure you have all you need for your stay. Location is very convenient for Downtown Austin, Zilker park and Barton Springs Pool. We do not hesitate to recommend.
My husband and I stayed here over the holidays and were very happy with our choice. The layout is great, with the bedroom and master bathroom a floor above the living room, kitchen, and powder room. The kitchen was very well-equipped, and the rest of the townhome had extras of all the standard amenities. The townhome is close to downtown and only a short walk to Zilker Park and Town Lake beyond. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Austin.
Our host made this girls weekend away very special! The townhouse was beautiful, well equipped, and just what we expected. Our host helped us navigate Austin, find the best shops, restaurants, and experiences to make our short stay pretty amazing! We will definitely return to Austin, and when we do, would love to stay here again.
We had such a great time at this wonderfully funky spot. The bed was super comfortable and the whole place was very clean. Eclectic decorations and the fish in the toilet tank really set the vibe for our first trip to Austin and ACL. Perfect walkability to the venue through a very scenic park. Kitchen was nicely equipped for morning coffee and late night take out. Lois provides a lot of great info on the surrounding area and made it a point to come by to make sure we were enjoying our stay. I will definitely be staying here again the next time I'm in Austin.
My family and I enjoyed our stay here. It was in a great location, it was clean, things were very turnkey and easy to use, and communication with the owner was good. I would recommend this location to any small family looking to get out and explore the greenbelt area of Austin.
This very large one bedroom vacation rental is located in the Zilker Park Area of Austin. It is in 78704 known for the Soco District, Barton Springs Pool, and an abundance of out door activities. The trail surrounding Lady Bird Lake is less than a mile from the rental and Barton Springs Pool couldn't be much closer. Downtown, 6th street, and the warehouse district are minutes away. We are close to almost anything and everything a tourist would want to do. Downtown is less than a $10.00 cab ride away. A bus stop and a convenience store are located around the corner.
