What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Zilker Cabin. My husband I went with my parents and our 5 month old daughter. Such a cozy & intimate place to stay while exploring Austin. The accommodations were wonderful, the location, superb, and Stephanie did such a good job prepping the place for our arrival. We would recommend the Zilker Cabin to anyone looking for a little getaway to Austin. It really does feel like home.

My wife and I took a long weekend and stayed in this home with another couple. The house is very clean and located in a very quiet, neat neighborhood. We didn't rent a car and were able to walk to a fantastic breakfast place, Snooze. Uber doesn't exists in Austin, so downloaded the app Ride Austin and were able to get picked up multiple times and dropped off in the city (across the river) for $20. The great thing about this house is that the only thing you see out of each window is bamboo. You don't even realize that houses are around you! I would definitely recommend this house. And by the way, the owner could not have been more accommodating and friendly. Thanks for a great stay!

Amazing house and Stephanie was a wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful as the pictures. It is well equipped and then some. Also it is within a 10 minute walk to Zilker Park and Barton Springs pool- so an excellent location as well. We have rented many houses and so I can honestly say this was the best house I have stayed in. We will be back! Thank you for sharing your home as a vacation rental..

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!
