Great house and location. Lisa was great- allowed an early check-in and delayed check-out. Beds are super comfortable. Some fun restaurants are walking distance on Barton Springs Road. You can also rent bikes there for taking the park loop downtown.

Amazing Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Austin for a bachelorette weekend and this house could not be more perfect! The house fit all of us very comfortably and felt more like home than a vacation rental. The location was perfect - right across the street from Zilker Park/Barton Springs and about a $10 cab ride to go downtown. Lisa was great, very accommodating and always helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better stay!!

Perfect location, lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property with 3 generations of family all under one roof. The location was perfect, a quick walk on foot to the park, Barton Springs pool, or food trucks. Groceries and dining right nearbye, or drive 1 mile to South Congress or downtown. The house had 4 different sleep areas, a nice deck overlooking the park, a kitchen stocked with everything you need to cook, and 2 full baths. Lisa, the owner, was very responsive and flexible with us. Great place to stay and explore Austin!

INCREDIBLY SPOT! Best Rental I have ever stayed in- hands down. Stop searching places and just book.

  • 5 of 5

This is hands down the best rental property I have ever stayed in- and I travel a lot- so... yeah, it is that wonderful. While the photos are true to form, they can't possibly give the true essence of Lisa's house the respect it deserves. You can see she really cares for this house and has put a ton of love and hard work into it. From the decor and openness of the house, it made it ideal for me and my guests trying to enjoy Austin and one another without having to think too hard about doing so. As with any trip, I was nervous for our arrival, hoping my guests liked my choice of accommodations and I can not tell you how relived I was when we walked in to the airy space and immediately felt at home, in fact, we all wished it was our home! Not only is the space in and of its self breathtaking, so is the location. We went down to Barton Springs every day and was able to paddle board in a matter of minutes from leaving the house. We didn't have to pack a car and head across town, we just walked out the door and was there. Our guests could come and go from the water as they pleased, making it a breeze for varying plans and schedules. We were also able to walk down the street to brunch and/or the bars if and when the mood suited us.

Above all though, Lisa was truly a gem to work with. From my first inquiry, booking, arriving, and leaving she was beyond helpful- super communicative, responsive, easy going, accommodating, and all around lovely. Quite frankly I wish she had a rental property in all of my destinations so I could work with her again. Needless to say, I will be finding another reason to return to Austin so I can stay here again and will be recommending her place to anyone and everyone I can.

This property sits 379 steps from the back entrance of Barton Springs, a 1,000 foot long, spring fed, natural limestone pool. Additionally, it is a stone's throw to Austin's urban jewels, Zilker Park and the Hike and Bike Trail which boast lush scenery and urban skyline views. These attractions consist of 360 acres on which visitors can ride bikes (bike rental half a mile away), hike, rent kayaks or canoes as close as 0.6 miles by foot, 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 Zac Scott Theater, the Austin Nature and Science Center, the South Congress shops, home to First Thursday, and a spectacular view of the Congress Bridge bats each dusk between March and November.
