Zilker House Rental Photos and Description

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!

Wonderful Location and Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this rental to anyone going to the Austin area. We stayed here for a reunion with some college friends. The location is wonderful and it allowed us to walk or bike anywhere we wanted to go. The home is well-equipped and comfortable. The owners are friendly and accommodating.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay with the family at Jessica's guesthouse. She was very helpful and prepared the place with everything we would need - baby crib, toys, extra sheets/towels. Definitely would come back to stay here next time we're in Austin. Location was ideal too, close to downtown, Zilker park, and the highways.
