Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed 4 nights at this lovely home, which is located at the end of a bamboo-lined driveway in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance Barton Springs Pool. The home's glossy wood finishes exude a cool tropical cabin vibe. The beds are comfortable, the linens are clean, the air conditioning pumps cold, and the house is orderly and well-maintained. The attentive owner has provided a coffee/tea maker (and coffees and teas), a water purifier for the refrigerator, as well as soaps and other amenities. Outside, there is a nice deck with a porch swing and a patio with an umbrella-covered table and chairs for enjoying a cold beverage. We would love to return on our next visit.

Hidden Austin Treasure

  • 5 of 5

Of all the various homes I've stayed in, this one is a real gem. For lots of reasons - the comfortable, simple decor, the amply stocked kitchen, the little luxuries like the claw foot tub, the beautiful bamboo that surrounds the property so it feels like the tropics, but most of all because Stephanie is an incredible host. You need it, you don't even know you need it - she's got you covered. Location and ease of use are additional plusses. It's truly the best spot in Austin if a quiet, close to the action, real home is what you are seeking.

Exceptional weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend with friends, both flying in from different states. Had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. The house is located in a perfect place that made for getting around easy, not taking too long to get to wineries, Lake Travis, Congress St for amazing restaurants and the bat's on the bridge. Stephanie is the perfect hostess, making herself available for any questions. The house was inviting and comfortable with everything available to us in case we forgot something. Also personal little touches, coffee and tea fully stocked and beautiful fresh flowers. A lovely place to go for our weekend, enjoyed every minute. Recommending it to our friends!

Far exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at the Zilker cabin to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. The cabin is a wonderful, quiet, Zen-like retreat, perfectly located with all the household amenities you would expect from a top notch vacation rental. More amazing and unexpected than the cabin is the attention to detail, personalization, and clear passion for hosting from Stephanie! Aside from the fresh flowers, fruit basket, and welcome refreshments, she had a birthday sign, candles, and cupcakes waiting for us when we arrived. A perfect weekend at a perfect property thanks to the perfect host!

My girlfriends surprised me with a birthday "staycation" at the Zilker cabin. When they told me our awesome agenda, I was so excited about the activities we had planned. I had no idea that my favorite part would be this cabin! It was absolutely perfect! Stephanie made sure the smallest details were taken care of. I have often been concerned with staying at home rentals because I am very particular about having all of the things I need. This cabin has everything! It made for the absolute perfect girls weekend!

I am a business traveler and also a mom of 2. I have stayed at MANY hotels! I will never recommend a hotel over this cabin for friends visiting Austin.

I can't wait to bring my family here to enjoy the seclusion of the home, but also the proximity of everything Austin! Thank you, Stephanie, for making my birthday perfect!
