Overview

About the property

* Sleeps 8 * Barton Springs * Zilker * ACL * SXSW * F1*

Staying here in this 3-story townhome, you will enjoy living downtown while being surrounded by a peaceful green space on a quiet, dead end street. One guest commented that it feels like 'I'm living in a beautiful tree house with a grand piano.' You will not have to worry with all of the Austin Gridlock traffic and have the choice to walk or bike to almost EVERYTHING!! Close enough to the action, but far enough away to get some sleep! Zilker Park, Barton Springs, ACL, SXSW, Long Center, Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail, Zilker Botanical Gardens, Palmer Events Center, Zach Scott Theater, go canoeing, or eat at plenty of the great restaurants, (like the original Chuy's) and there's also a grocery nearby. You will be living closer to Zilker Park and Barton Springs than the car parking areas for ACL! 2 miles to the F1 Helipad Transport! City bus is a only a 10 minute walk. You'll have nice views and beautiful sunsets. The open kitchen and living area are on the second floor. This contemporary home has been recently remodeled with all furnishings including granite countertops, fancy coffee machine, large outdoor grill, and all new appliances! 3 Bedrooms, one on each floor, 3 Full Bathrooms, Garden shower, grand piano, glass atrium and a fireplace. Fun, Funky neighborhood on a quiet 'No Outlet' street. Covered parking available. Wifi. Great place for kids that are old enough and young enough, to negotiate stairs. We are happy to offer some directions or assistance; whatever will make your stay more comfortable. We can usually offer discounts for extended stays and repeat customers--just ask. We are licensed by the City of Austin (We apologize in advance for the Austin taxes). We are always happy to help you navigate all the Austin awesomeness! Can't wait to help make your stay in Austin absolutely terrific!

Accessible by foot: Austin's Urban Jewels

Zilker Park, Barton Springs, and the Hike and Bike Trail consist of 360 acres on which visitors can ride bikes (bike rental a mile away), hike, rent kayaks or canoes, play volleyball or disk golf, fly kites, or stroll through the botanical gardens. While at the lake you can try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding, the world's fastest growing water sport. Barton Springs Road is home to many bars and restaurants, a putting range, a mini golf course, and a performing arts center. Nearby is the world class Zach Scott Theater, the Austin Nature and Science Center, the famous food trailers, the South Congress boutiques, home to First Thursday, and a spectacular view of the Congress Bridge bats flying at dusk between March and November.

About Tom and Daris Hale

Tom and Daris are artsy musicians that perform with the Austin Symphony, Ballet Austin, and Austin Lyric Opera. We have spent many years performing and living abroad in places such as Italy, Austria, Mexico, Germany, and most recently in Tanzania.

We have two feral children that are relatively house broken and rarely bite. The kids have to attend ballet, opera, and symphony more than they would like and usually resort to hanging with the stage crew. Quite frequently we host foreign exchange students (high school and college) just because we enjoy sharing the best of American culture, like spray-on tans, and dog sweaters. Seriously, we love people and sharing Austin with them. We look forward to hosting you!

Why Tom and Daris Hale chose Zilker

This property is amazing because it is very private and quiet, yet very close to Austin's finest attractions. You will be closer to ACL than people can park their cars! You can go jogging and then jump into Barton Springs. The greenbelt is great for hiking during the day and 6th Street is fab for evening pleasures. This is a great place if you want to have fun and then retreat to a peaceful accommodation. Then hopefully you will have time to enjoy some coffee from the fancy machine or watch a movie on the large flat screen TV.

What makes this house unique

The views, the quiet wilderness even though you are in the city, the artsy neighborhood, the greenbelt, and of course, Barton Springs-wow! Zilker Park!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely enjoyed our stay. It is a bit like staying in a glass treehouse.

Kitchen is well stocked and it is centrally located, but in a quiet neighborhood (not in the middle of loud 6th Street).

Would definitely stay here again.

The house is fun and welcoming. Great amenities and the location is the best.

  • 5 of 5

Three story town house with bedrooms and bathrooms on every floor. The kitchen is roomy, modern and stocked with everything we needed to make a light snack or a full meal. The glassed in eating area and the patios were so nice. A short walk to the green belt. A short drive to good eats on S. Lamar. The upstairs shower was the best thing ever after a long walk! Would definitely re-visit

Wonderful family vacation home in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have picked a better family vacation spot in Austin. Spacious, comfortable home with (bonus!) fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms. The dining room was amazing--we stayed in for many meals just to enjoy the room. We were 10 minutes drive from almost all of the big Austin attractions--nice walking trails nearby as well. Plenty of room for the 7 of us--each reported comfy mattresses and pillows. Love that each bedroom has it's own bathroom and patio/balcony area. Would stay here again if we plan another family trip to Austin.

Ideal spot for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend here with 6 people and a small dog. House was immaculate. All necessities were provided. Plenty of sleeping space in the 3 bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which is ideal. Owners responsive and friendly. Very convenient to everything in Austin. Would stay again and recommend to others.
