About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 2-6, 850 square feet in the heart of Zilker!

This spacious, newly built 2nd story detached garage apartment will make you feel right at home while enjoying all Austin has to offer. We are located within walking distance of Austin's best attractions - Zilker Park, Barton Springs, Lady Bird Lake & Hike and Bike Trail, Live Music, Congress Avenue, Whole Foods Flagship Store, Local Premier Restaurants and much more! All of this in a very quiet, family neighborhood.

We have 10' ceilings throughout the unit with ceiling fans in each room. It is fully equipped with a 32' TV, cable, wi-fi, refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, kitchen necessities to prepare your own meals and comfortable seating for 6. One room has a king bed, the other a queen and the sleeper sofa in the living room comfortably accommodates two. The bathroom has a full sized tub with shower and a washer and dryer if needed. A newly constructed deck with pergola provides a wonderful outside space to kick back and relax.

If you need space for more than 6 people, we also rent out our main house on the property. It sleeps 8-12 and has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Please check out VRBO listing #429287 for more details!

Entrance and Parking: The accommodations are above a detached garage with an elevated view, so please keep in mind there are stairs to the entry door. The entry is on the back side of the structure and we have motion lighting and also a switched porch light operable from both inside and at the bottom of the stairs. We have a sidewalk around the unit to the stairs. Parking is available on the street. The building is located in the rear of the property and is a little over a 100' walk from the street to the entrance.

Neighborhood Notes: This is a quiet, family-oriented neighborhood. We respect our neighbors and their property. No big parties are allowed however small social gatherings are quite fine. Please be aware of your noise level at all times. Take a walk around the block and you'll see many people outside enjoying the 'hood with their family and pets. We live on the property and are here to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable, while respecting your privacy. Please let us know if we can do anything to make your Austin experience even better!

Excellent stay in Austin

  • 5 of 5

This rental has plenty of space and feels like a home. It includes a completely furnished kitchen space, two comfy bedrooms, laundry facilities, and a spacious living room, large enough to entertain. The owners were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd VRBO in Austin. Really enjoyed our stay. Very private, house was in great shape, bed comfortable, great neighborhood. The house is in walking distance of many restaurants, pubs, and Ladybird path along the Colorado River. We will definitely return to this home.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for our stay in Austin. Literally minutes to Zilker Park, downtown, and a ton of Austin's best eats. Enjoyed the privacy of the garage apartment (spacious, esp with the high ceilings), even with neighbors' construction, it was still very quiet. Everything you need is in the apartment which is clean and well kept. Comfy beds and nice powerful shower pressure. 2 crates of toys/books for babies/toddlers along with lots extra blanket/towels. Jessie was very easy to reach at any time, and even helped us find our missing cell phone! Would definitely stay here again!
