Austin House Rental Photos and Description

Sweet Zilker Park 1930's bungalow on one of Austin's most loved streets. This house offers 3 bedrooms in the main house (2 queens and a full). There is also a 1 bedroom garage apartment with a queen bed that can be rented for an additional fee. We do not rent both units to different parties. Quaint and comfortable.

Wonderful weekend with family is Austin

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better location for our weekend with cousins in Austin. Tina and Alan were helpful from the onset and made sure we had everything we needed. It's an easy walk to fun restaurants as well as the river path which is perfect for runners and walkers of all ages! The house and apartment were perfect for our group of five and we loved the screened in porch! We will not hesitate to rent this house again!

Great Wedding Central!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 adults and 2 children came to Austin for a family wedding, we were hoping to find a central location that would be easily accessible to the botanical gardens and downtown, this property was the perfect! It was a great location and was very roomy and comfortable. We had friends drop by and it was an easy walk to several restaurants and food trucks. Thank you to the owners who made us feel at home and were easily accessible when we needed quick assistance. The garage apartment was a great way to accommodate more family buy yet give them some privacy. We will definitely recommend this to anyone coming to Austin and we look forward to a return visit.

Family Get Together

  • 4 of 5

Out of town family members getting together. Good location with easy access to everything. We rented both the house and 1 bdrm unit above the garage. For our group it worked really well. We had a full house of 8 adults and even entertained several Austin friends one night. The screened in porch was a huge bonus and our stay would not have been as relaxing without it. The only downside was our expectation for using the BBQ two of our four nights; unfortunately it was not operational. Tina was very attentive to my emails and phone calls. Would definitely return to stay at this home in Austin again.

Perfect location for local Austin exploring!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 with 6 adult children visited Austin for the first time, hoping this property would be comfortable, easy to accommodate all of us, great for quick brunch meals, and central to the shopping, restaurant and entertainment venues. And we were right! Thanks for providing a lovely home, easy to use facilities, and flexible and pleasant managers.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We were in Austin for Cyclocross Nationals at Zilker Park. The house was absolutely perfect for us to stay with our friends. There was plenty of room and we had everything we needed. Walking to the park and also to tons of wonderful places to eat and listen to music was no problem. Loved the garage apartment too! Great Stay - we will definitely be back.

Quiet On The Set!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Austin for the Austin Film Festival and this was the perfect retreat from the festival hub bub. We rented both the house and the cottage as we had a large group that was multi-generational. There was plenty of privacy for everyone and lots of different spaces to hang in. The screen porch out back was a favorite spot as the weather was glorious. The cottage was perfect for my daughter who was working throughout our visit. The dining area was a favorite meeting spot and the living room is a great conversation area. The rental process was smooth and professional and everything was as advertised. The neighborhood is sweet and the location is an easy walk to a number of good places to eat if you don't mind hoofing it up a fairly steep hill. Austin Java is at the bottom of the hill and great place for coffee and breakfast. As we arrived from the 4 corners of the country the location of the airport was important to us and I will tell you it is a breeze to get to and from the airport. Austin does have some pretty mighty traffic though if you are headed downtown. Loved this place and will rent it again. Thanks for the hospitality Austin, you are terrific.
