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 currently in Norway. She is a fabulous artist, writer and adventure lover. She has been traveling all over the world for the past 6 years.

Our son is a freshman in the Technical University in Warszawa, Poland. He wants to experience other cultures, travel and taste the world . He loves sports...mainly parkour , kickboxing and jiu jitsu. When he is out of college he wants to return to the US and become a fire fighter. 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.

Eva Sim-Zabka purchased this house in 2001

Why Eva Sim-Zabka chose North 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?

Very nice home in north Austin

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering, this house was very welcoming, open, and roomy. Beautiful floors. Large, well-equipped kitchen. Three couples stayed here very comfortably. Two bedrooms share a nice Jack & Jill bathroom with double vanities. Double vanities also in the master bathroom. Comfortable beds. The loft is very cute and secluded; however, whoever might stay there would need to come downstairs to use a bathroom. All in all, this is a very attractive and comfortable home.

Wonderful north Austin park side house

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, comfortable house in a great location. Close to 35 and MoPac, directly across from a beautiful park with an extensive trail network. Irek and Eva were great. Eva was there to get us settled in and they were both immediately responsive when we had a problem. We loved our stay here.

(If you are ever here, check out Garbo’s, a small restaurant within walking distance. Fabulous Brussel sprouts; good seafood.)

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Irek and Eva's lovely home. The house was warm, inviting, and very comfortable and the park across the street was an added bonus! We just wish we had had more time to relax in the beautiful back yard- maybe next time :)

Perfect House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly as described and perfect for our extended family! We were in Austin for a wedding. 7 of us had traveled from West Texas, Alabama and Kentucky. It was perfect that we were able to stay under the same roof! Great location, close to parks and the city!! I’d definitely recommend this place! (And I’ll go back, too!!)

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 :)
