Barton Hills House Rental Photos and Description

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!

78704ever: Come hang out in the most sought after zip code in Austin, 78704: 'It's more than a zip code, it's a way of life!'

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!

Wonderful stay at this home for my son's Austin wedding. House was clean and comfortable and in a great location. Enjoyed our stay and would come back again. Owners were wonderful to deal with. Beds were clean and comfortable - linens were nice. Kitchen was well stocked. Great deck in backyard and beautiful evening setting.

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!

This was more of a moving my granddaughter to Austin into her apartment weekend, and right at the time we are having all the rain and floods going on in Texas. It was so nice that we had such a great home to end up after all the moving and tiresome work of unloading and working on organizing her apartment. We were able to just quit when we were tired and go to the home we rented and feel as if we were home we had all the necessities and comfort of home. It was large enough and enjoyed cooking and relaxing....even as it rained....I always remember to look up Home-Away for all my trips, any Hotel room. The owner of the Home was more than gracious and gave us suggestions of great places to go & eat out....I would highly recommend this home clean and in order and cute.

Westrock is a great home base to enjoy Austin!

  • 5 of 5

Westrock is a great home base to enjoy Austin!

We enjoyed walking to South Lamar (just 2 blocks away!) and eating at Kirby Lane Cafe (an Austin healthy-food cafe), Wholly Cow (for burgers and breakfast coffee and taco), Aroma (an Italian Restaurant), Torchies Taco (an Austin Classic), Amy's Ice Cream (another Austin Classic) and about 15 other restaurants on South Lamar. Just 2 blocks from the Broken Spoke...the oldest dance hall in Texas. We love cannot beat the "no motors" on Lady Bird Lake, just 2 miles away! You paddle right through downtown, or go to the wilderness area by Redbud Island. If there is a concert on Auditorium Shores, you can enjoy the concert from the water. We love Austin! Westrock lets you enjoy all it has to offer. Close to bus lines on Lamar. And there are taxis all over! The house itself is very clean. 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Nice patios to enjoy the Austin spring. Grill worked great. Jay kept us supplied with paper products and anything else we needed. We plan to return for 30 days again next year right after South by Southwest!

A home away from home for the holidays!

  • 4 of 5

The home had everything we needed for a holiday home--full kitchen, wine refrigerator, family dining table, comfortable beds, and lots of room inside. The backyard and patio were awesome and much more spacious than they appear in the photos online. Very quiet neighborhood. It was great!!

Fantastic South Austin House

  • 5 of 5

VacationCake is a great company. They manage several houses in Austin, a few of which I have had the pleasure to stay in. Jay and Lauren are so helpful with anything and everything. Their customer service is top-notch!

This is just the most darling house. Located in just off South Lamar, it's close to many great restaurants and just a short drive from Zilker park and Barton Springs. There is plenty of space - a large kitchen that is perfect for anyone who loves to cook, three bedrooms and 2 baths. But the deck is really the reason I loved this house. There is a huge, 2-tier deck in a large back yard. There is a grill, and a great bed-like lounger under a shade. Bamboo helps the yard feel private. Such a pretty house, in a charming little neighborhood in a great part of town. There's nothing not to love about VacationCake and the Westrock house.

'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.

The Westrock is a fully furnished and well thought out vacation rental home. With two king beds and two twins and two full bathrooms, a family of 6 (or 7) will be very comfortable. We've tried to think of everything you'd need and we start you with organic coffee, filters, creamer and sugar. There's basic condiments in the fridge. 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!
