About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths! Modern kitchen, king bed, beautiful back deck.

Welcome to The Westrock! This 1800 sq ft 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is in a tucked away in the Barton Hills neighborhood that offers a perfect family abode that is within 3 miles of everything that Austin has to offer, including downtown, Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, University of Texas and it's also within about a quarter mile of The Barton Creek Greenbelt! Oh, and The Broken Spoke is literally two blocks away! Bring your dancin boots!

In the house you have a king bed in the master bedroom, a king in the second bedroom and two twins in the third. So you can comfortably sleep 6 people in beds. In the living room we have a queen sized fold out couch in case you do end up with 7 or even 8 people.

There are two full bathrooms, each with a shower/tub combo. The kitchen is gorgeous and open to living room, which get's a ton of sunlight. Enjoy the 46' TV in the living room that is connected with the AT&T Uverse U300 Cable package - so you can watch all your favorite shows when you're not dancing at 'the spoke.' This includes The Longhorn Network. HOWEVER: as of Feb 2015 we will have Google Fiber internet and TV!

The Broken Spoke: World famous honkey tonk dance hall, literally two blocks away! So bring your boots and get scootin!

So much good food around here, as well. Dozens of great restaurants within walking distance.

You're also within a couple blocks of an entrance to the Barton Creek Greenbelt - which is one of the natural crown jewels of Austin. You can literally hike for miles in the middle of town without even knowing you're in a city. Beautiful stuff and well worth packing a lunch and taking a nice long hike!

Public transport is easy and we have a private charter vehicle available as well.

About Jay Reynolds

I'm a born and raised Austinite and actually i've lived more on less in this neighborhood my whole life! I love the Zilker and Barton Hills area. There's really no where else i'd rather call home. Currently I live right around the corner from this property.

Jay Reynolds purchased this house in 2013

Why Jay Reynolds chose Austin

This is a fabulous three bedroom home in one of Austin's premier neighborhoods, Barton Hills. The location is perfect for exploring town and still having a quiet place to go relax and regroup.

What makes this house unique

We had a huge deck built in the back yard! Plus you can walk to lots of great eats. But the best thing: Zilker Park and the Barton Creek Greenbelt is a short distance away. Downtown is only 3 miles. New restaurants are opening within just a few blocks seemingly every day!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I was incredibly impressed with this beautiful house! We originally were going to rent hotel rooms for our party of seven, but knew we needed a place where we could all come together, and hotel rooms just did not provide that. This house is in an ideal location: less than two miles from Sunset Valley, a mile from downtown, and right off Lamar. We never had to travel far for anything we needed! I have rented houses before, but never one so well stocked with items. I always bring my own toiletries, kitchen essentials, etc., but that was not needed. They provided everything! The house was immaculate and beautiful with the most wonderful outdoor space. I will definitely be renting this house again!

The Westrock is equipped with central heat and AC, beautiful living areas, a brand new back deck, comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen and plenty of linens and towels for you. There are TV's in the living room and master bedroom with full ATT Uverse Cable. This is a fabulous location to enjoy the best Austin has to offer, just a stones throw off of South Lamar (but far enough that there's no traffic noise), you've got dozens of fabulous restaurants and bars within walking distance! Read our reviews and you can see how happy our guests have been!

Cute, cozy, and clean

  • 5 of 5

The condo that we were going to rent became unavailable, so the owner asked if we would like to stay in a house. There were just two of us, so we had more roomed than was needed. But, we thought it was a great house! Nice big kitchen, attractive bedrooms with two king beds and two twins, and a cool deck with fun lighting.

The location was good for our activities, especially since we were wanting to visit my cousin's new restaurant Eberly. It was just a quick drive down S. Lamar. The toiletries are always appreciated as well as the coffee beans. Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, sister and I stayed at the Westrock while visiting the grand babies, we all found it to be our new destination and home away from home. Very quite neighborhood and a great location for seeing all the Austin has to offer. We found the listing matched the VRBO description, was very well maintained and clean. High highly recommend this property to all my friend and family.

perfect house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 3 little kids for a weekend trip to Austin. The house is as described, and very very clean. Good layout and very comfortable. Kitchen is wel equipped. The property is in a laid back residential neighborhood. We walked from the house thru the greenbelt to Barton Springs pool. A pretty cool urban wilderness hike! Tons of cool coffee shops and restaurants nearby.

Amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 high school girlfriends stayed here for a 3-day weekend. The house was perfect for us! Kelly was wonderful to work with and even bought props for the pictures she took of us. She definitely went above and beyond just getting the house clean and ready for us. The open kitchen, dining, and living area made a perfect spot for hanging out together. We enjoyed the patio for morning coffee too. Home is well stocked with the basics, even coffee beans and grinder. We had plenty of driveway and carport space for our 4 cars. We're planning to stay here again next Spring.

Great Location, Great Place, Great Owners.

  • 5 of 5

Made a great deal on a short notice trip to see my father for Father's Day. The place was so perfect for me and my pups and family, that it became the place we celebrated our family gathering.

Will want to stay here again and almost don't want to rate it as high as it should be, because it will always be booked!

'The Westrock' is located just south of downtown Austin, in the Barton Hills neighborhood (one of Austin's finest!). The Barton Creek Greenbelt is just a couple block away and Zilker Park is about a mile and half away, all through the neighborhood!

Also, don't forget about Austin's most famous honkey tonk dance club: The Broken Spoke - less than two blocks away. You can even pull that off in your boots, I reckon!

Some nearby eats: Kerbey Lane Cafe, Torchy's Tacos, Papalote Tacos, Thundercloud Subs, Phoenicia Bakery and Deli, and dozens more.

Nearby drinks: Gordoughs Public House, Baker St Pub, Park Sports Bar, Pluckers.

Public transport is easy if you won't be having a car - there's bus stops just out on Lamar. Easy access.
