Great Location to visit Austin!

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly as pictures and description suggest. Home is a good word to describe the experience you will have. Lovely spa appointments, spacious rooms and beautiful views of the park. We walked every day for coffee, food trucks and barbecue!!! Quick ride to great locations in Austin as well as the airport. Lisa is easy to connect with and would highly recommend this home to all. Thanks for a great family vacation.

This place is decorated so well that you truly feel at home! The view of Zilker Park is surreal! Access to everything is easy, including great restaurants. The owner was incredible, caring and very knowledgeable about Austin and all it has to offer. My family can't wait to stay again.

Great location, and even cooler house and landlord.

  • 5 of 5

First, this location is literally a 5 minute walk to Barton's Spring, Austin impresses me because you can feel like you are in the country in the middle of a bustling city, Barton Spring's delivers that. Second, the treehouse is the appropriate name for this house, you are up two stories looking down on Barton's Springs and all the goings on across the street, you at once feel "away from it all" and "close to the action." Finally, Lisa, the landlord, is a sweetheart, we had a question about something inside the apartment (turned out to be my fault) and she was on the spot within an hour, totally friendly, with her repair guy to try and help out. My family is considering coming back around the holiday's, that's how much they enjoyed this unique property in the heart of America's coolest city.

Lovely and very comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed the home and the deck. Plenty of space for all of us to have our own place to retreat. All of the beds and furnishings were very comfortable. Very clean and great attention to detail. Right across the street From Zilker Park and very convenient to downtown Austin as well as the interstates.

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.
