Overview

Tarrytown Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Full Bath, 1 Office (can be converted to bedroom)

Scenic Place Condos is an ideal setting if you are looking for a quiet and scenic place to stay while still having easy access to downtown Austin or the University of Texas. Tarrytown is a one-of-a-kind location that is rich in history, charm and scenery. It is situated minutes from the heart of downtown and is filled with large trees, lake views, peaceful parks, and historic properties.

The condo is located directly across from the popular Scenic Drive. You can walk along Scenic to experience some of the most beautiful views of Lake Austin. Mt. Bonnell (1.3 mi) is also a popular destination for a vista view of the city, the lake, and the surrounding hill country. Neighborhood shopping such as a grocery store, pharmacy, and coffee house is ½ mile away. You can also enjoy dining or a drink on the lake at nearby Hula Hut, Abels on the Lake, or Mozarts Coffeehouse.

Scenic Place is a convenient location for outdoor enthusiasts, event-goers, music lovers, cyclists, runners, hikers, and anyone visiting town for a University of Texas related event or visit. It is also great if you are in transition between homes, want to have a long stay near your family members that live in the area, are transitioning into Austin from another area, need to be close to the hospital, or are just passing through and want to explore Austin and the Hill Country.

If your plans will keep you downtown, it is less than 4 miles away or a $15 cab ride. A city bus stop is also next to the property.

Other nearby popular places & destinations include:

- Lady Bird Johnson Lake Hike/Bike Trail (Town Lake) (3 mi.)

- Mayfield Park and Nature Preserve (1 mi.)

- Austin Museum of Art Laguna Gloria (1 mi.)

- Deep Eddy Park & Cabaret (3.4)

- University of Texas at Austin (5 mi.)

- Zilker Park (ACL Fest) (5 mi.)

- Seton Medical Center (2 mi.)

- Lions Municipal Golf Course (1.5 mi.)

Feel free to call me directly if you have any questions.

About Nancy E. Roberts (Betsy)

I moved to Austin in 1997 from Maryland, fell in love with the active outdoor lifestyle and chose to stay. I purchased this home in 2002 and have renovated the entire interior over time. After getting married in 2013, my husband John and I bought a home together nine miles north and now maintain this condo as a vacation rental. We are not absent owners or property managers. We live and work in Austin full-time and are close by if our guests need anything during their stay. I enjoy and love all that Austin has to offer and this condo & location makes it easy to do everything and still enjoy the peace and quiet of the hill country.

Why Nancy E. Roberts (Betsy) chose Austin

I chose this property because I wanted to live in a quiet historic neighborhood with easy access to downtown and Lake Austin. Tarrytown is quiet, scenic, and classy with an ecclectic & wide-ranging mix of homes. I enjoy walking along Scenic Drive, biking downtown, coffee at Mozarts, drinks at Hula Hut, climbing Mt. Bonnell steps; walking to Reed Park; swimming at Deep Eddy, watching the peacocks at Mayfield Nature Preserve, and more.

What makes this condo unique

My property is unique because it's a great and affordable way to stay in Tarrytown! it is so close to downtown activity, in the hills, accessible to bike routes, and close to the lake -- but still quiet and affordable for a single person, couple, or small family.

Superb Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

For the past few summers, we have stayed in various houses in the Austin area while visiting family. This condo is by far is the best!! The location was perfect-easy to get downtown or to Mopac etc. The condo is the perfect size and configuration. It had absolutely everything we needed and then some!

We were welcomed with a lovely basket of wine, beer, sweets and Austin essentials! I can not recommend this condo enough. It is was so comfortable we did not want to leave!!

Amazing Location, Awesome House, Excellent Host.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Tarrytown. The house was well apointed, in a wonderful neighborhood. The Starbucks, and Randall's grocery made for a nice evening or morning walk. Overall the host was welcoming and readily available to answer questions. All of the best part's of Austin felt like nearby drives. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks for sharing your awesome house!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here in April/May 2014.

The location is convenient for access to downtown Austin as well as the N. Lamar Central Market & other shops/restaurants nearby. We enjoyed walks thru the beautiful neighborhood & along Scenic Drive with views of the lake. The condo is well furnished & so comfortable. The owner was great to work with as we extended our stay & very responsive during an unexpected brief utility outage in the area. What a pleasure to have the patio to enjoy the spring weather. We will be back!

This is the second time we have stayed in the Tarrytown Condo. It was clean, comfortable, and welcoming this time as it was before. Great place for grandparents visiting family.

The perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this property and it's owner! We stayed here for three months and absolutely loved it. The furnishings are unbelievable - literally every comfort of home from beach towels to a blender is included. The location is phenomenal for access to central, north OR south Austin. The owners are helpful and responsive and went out of their way to accommodate our needs (including leaving child proofing gear for us since we have a one year old). You really can't ask for a better rental!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in so many VRBO and this was the most welcoming. We walked into the kitchen to find a wonderful basket of Texas goodies. The fridge was so clean and contained NEW products for our use - butter, cream, mayo, mustard. The baths were very clean (points on the tp) and the beds are comfortable. The decor is delightful.

We hope to stay here again.
