About Eva Sim-Zabka

My husband and I lived in many places in Europe and the US. We moved to Austin in 1998 and absolutely love it here. We travel a lot but call Austin our home. Our children grew up here. Our daughter lives part time in Italy and part time in Austin. She is a fabulous artist, writer and adventure lover.

Our son is in high school and loves sports...mainly parkour and kickboxing. When he is out of high school , my husband and I want to live in different places for few months at the time (Europe, South America, Australia) and enjoy different cultures. We love meeting new people, learning new languages and making new friends.

Why Eva Sim-Zabka chose Austin

We bought this house because we loved the outdoor space. The park is just fabulous and there are so many things to do. We lived in this house for 3 years and enjoyed every day there. Every morning we would walk to the pond , watch ducks and turtles and spend some time with the nature. We love riding bicycles and we didn't want to ride on the streets. This park offers numerous routs so you don't get bored for sure. We enjoyed the events in the park that allowed us to meet our neighbors and their children. We loved how well maintained everything was here. Few years ago, the neighborhood opened up a new library (just down the street!) and a fun recreation center. What else do you need?

Quaint, beautiful, clean, and well laid out home in Austin

  • 5 of 5

We came to Austin for an early Christmas with our extended family. We had 2 couples and 3 children staying in this home, and it was so well laid out, that we were all cozy but comfortable. The upstairs loft for the older kids was a PERFECT getaway. The home was clean, and well decorated. The back yard was adorable. The home was right across the street from a beautiful park, so it was a great place to take the dogs for a walk and be out in nature. Thanks Eva and Irek for a perfect family get away!

The place was very nice, clean and comfortable with beautiful patio and back yard. Across the street is a great park with trails and Olympic swimming pool. It is in the middle of a very quiet residential area and not far away from I-35. Delightful!!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much! The owners were great to work with and the house was very clean and well maintained! Grocery stores were very close and convenient. The kids loved the extra hideaway bedroom upstairs and the park across the street! For our family, this was so much better than getting three hotel rooms where we would have to eat out every night and take all of our dirty clothes in a suitcase. We highly recommend this property for a stay near Austin!

This neighborhood is a dream if you are an outdoor lover. There are endless well maintained walking/jogging trails (mostly shaded) with wooden porch swings along the trails if you need a break. A beautiful park if just outside your front door with tennis court, basketball court, volleyball court, playground, pool, and more. The library is just down the street. It has lots of activities for kids including story time, arts and crafts and yoga for adults. You can fish or watch turtles in the nearby pond or spend some time in the meditation garden. Not too far we have a fabulous 18 holes, well marked frisbee golf. Another few minutes away you will find a recreation center with yoga, zumba, and other classes for adults. We are just minutes away from popular Domain with excellent restaurants, bars, shopping and live music. And then ... of course.. there is Whole Foods :)
