About Eva Sim-Zabka

My husband and I simply love houses. We have been remodeling , renting, buying and selling real estate in Austin since 2001. We love the process of transformation. No matter how old and ugly the house might be, we will transform it into a beautiful, artistic, and modern space. Outside of real estate, we love to travel internationally, meet new people, taste new foods, learn new languages, and make new friends. We are originally from Europe, but truly, the world is our home. We lived in many places and many homes and will make you feel welcomed and comfortable.

** Eva holds an active real estate license in the state of Texas

Eva Sim-Zabka purchased this house in 2013

Why Eva Sim-Zabka chose Austin

We love this neighborhood. The house is in the heart of Austin, yet on a quiet , private street. It gives us a perfect access to places we enjoy, live music, markets, parks. We are both from Europe and walking and riding our bicycles is very important to us. We don't like to sit in traffic!

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

I along with a few family and friends, stayed at this residence. This residence is a 5 star 5 diamond property, both owners were very accommodating and I will absolutely reserve in advance for my next stay.

The location was fantastic, 20 min away from lake, downtown, and much more.

Love the back yard!

  • 4 of 5

Prefer to stay at a VRBO place as opposed to a hotel when traveling and staying for several days in one location. This house was exactly as described. The fenced back yard was a huge plus! Very private and quiet. Gas grill was put to good use as was the comfortable patio furniture. House literally had 100's of CD's for any type of music you wanted.

Our party was three adults and one child so the beds worked out okay. Would be nicer if there were 2 Queen beds instead of just the one, especially if being rented by two couples. Overall, really enjoyed the house and everything about it. Neat as a pin when we got there, owner was very pleasant, and everything worked without a problem.

Sometimes VRBO rentals are disappointing, but this one definitely did not! Would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Wonderful stay in Austin !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Eva ! Your home was perfect for our family gathering. We celebrated a family birthday and several flew in from many states. It was so nice to all be in the same home and enjoy being together. The home is clean and decorated beautifully. The paintings in the home are beautiful and the colors are vibrant ! We had everything we needed for sleeping, cooking and a place to gather and relax. The backyard was awesome ! Beautiful deck with plenty of seating and relaxation for all. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful home! We will be back.

Eva provides 5-star service! Our group of 4 didn't know our way around Austin, but Eva and her very helpful binder, made our planning efforts a lot easier. The house lived up to the photos. We loved relaxing on the back patio and having a quick walk to Thunderbird coffee. Thanks for all of the help, Eva.

Lovely House in the heart of Austin!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this lovely house for a week … and without a doubt this house added to the wonderful time that we had in Austin. There were 5 of us … our two adult children plus our 17 year old grandson and we all had our own personal space … there are 3 bedrooms including a 4th optional bedroom. The house is beautifully laid out and easily accommodated our family. The furniture is lovely throughout … none of us could get over the art work … Eva, our host, is an exceptional artist!

Mornings began with a cup of coffee in the beautiful backyard and days ended with a glass of wine in the beautiful backyard. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked and we always made breakfast before leaving and many evenings made dinner.

The location is great! A 15 minute drive from the house to just about anywhere! Eva, our host, was so warm and gracious … even allowing our daughter and grandson to stay later on departure day since they had a late flight home! We couldn't have had a better experience!!!!!
