Great place and owner

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a true Austin place at a great central location this is the place for you. The pictures don't do the place a justice. Great place and the owner was amazing and answered all of our questions and was very helpful. Place was clean and well stocked with the basics you need. Thanks for a great stay. We will be back!!

Great base for exploring Austin

  • 5 of 5

This is the upper floor of a duplex. Its in a "funky" up and coming part of Austin, but the location can't be beat. Zilker Park is across the street, and you can easily access the Barton Creek and Lady Bird Lake trails from the park. A number of restaurants are within walking distance, and the shops and restaurants along South Lamar and SoCo are a short drive or longer walk away. Downtown, 6th street and Rainey Street all a short drive away as well.

While the drive-up appeal not that great, the interior has been thoroughly renovated, and you will have all that you need for your stay. My wife and I and three teens had plenty of room to spread out, and the large living area/kitchen provided plenty of family gathering area. The outdoor decks are very nice, and if the weather is nice, the french doors can be opened up to create a large indoor/outdoor living space.

All in all an excellent place to stay, and superior alternative to a hotel. Lisa, the owner, is responsive to texts and emails and ready to assist if needed.

So beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was as stunning as the pictures and so close to Barton springs! Less than a 10 minute walk to the hiking and biking trail. I would definitely stay again!!

Gorgeous, comfortable and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This has been one of the best home rentals we’ve ever stayed in, period. For starters, it’s in a spectacular location, and walkable to all the awesome food trucks and restaurants along Barton Springs Rd. It’s close enough to Downtown, and easy to get to 6th St, Rainey St and Congress Ave in a matter of minutes via Ride Austin or by driving. Other stores, like Trader Joes and Target were within a close 10 minute drive away so if we forgot something, it was not a problem and easy to get to as well.

The rental itself was very comfortable and homey with enough on-site parking for 2 cars. The beds, sofa, and chairs were comfortable and the unit had an awesome balcony with great views of open space. It was furnished with high end appliances which allowed us to cook some awesome breakfasts, and it had a nice long farm table which allowed us all to eat together comfortably as a group. Every single one of us adored the décor and amenities of this Zilker home.

We didn’t get to do all we wanted in Austin during our February 2017 trip, as a weekend trip is not enough time to experience this great City, but we do plan to be back. And when we do return, we would love to stay in this same beautiful rental! Lisa was a courteous host and was responsive to all our questions and needs.

The only thing I personally wish this rental had was an AppleTV or Google Chrome connected to the TV, so that we could easily connect our phones to the big screen TV that was in the living room to play music from our phones or watch Netflix late at night!

Overall we can't wait to return!

Such a Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this VRBO for my sister's bachelorette party and we had SO much fun!!! It's the ideal place for a group of women...SO beautifully decorated and plenty of space for 9 of us. Every morning we sat and had coffee and mimosas on the gorgeous deck that overlooks Zilker park. We were a short cab ride away from all the bars downtown, only about 9 minutes. On the warmest days we went and laid out by Barton Springs which was literally a 5 minute walk from the house. Not to mention that Lisa was incredibly helpful and accommodating. I couldn't rave more about this place! It was perfect!

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.
