South Lamar and Zilker combined equal location. Enjoy this mid-century bungalow in the heart of Zilker and South Austin. Decorated with vintage auto posters and other fun stuff.
It’s five minutes by car or cab to downtown. Only a two minute walk to Maria’s Taco’s, Matt’s El Rancho, Mr. Naturral and Irie Bean Coffee Bar. You are also a short walk to Barton Springs and Lady Bird Lake. But really, if you are downtown bound, no car is needed at this address because it’s also just one block from the main Lamar bus line that goes straight to UT and Downtown, cruising past Alamo Draft House, Uchi, Olivia‘s, and Barton Springs on the way. Or, take a cab, it's only three miles to downtown.
The home is two bedroom, one bath with complete kitchen, and dining. Sleeps five with queen beds in each bedroom and a pull out single in the living room. The bathroom is located in a hallway between the bedrooms. Grab dinner from Mr. Natural or Artz, take it home and enjoy a glass of wine on your own patio.

We love to travel, and it's because of the convenience and fun we have had in staying in vacation rentals by owner that we decided to make the experience availabe for others in this home.
Rebecca Heston purchased this bungalow in 1997
This home is location friendly and South Austin proud. It's located in the wonderful Barton Hills/Zilker neighborhood which we also call home. We are long time Austinites, and still think the city is one of the best places in the world. Open, friendly, and healthy - great music and lots of good food and fun. As we've watched Austin evolve into an urban destination with an outdoor twist, we thought - why not offer this home as a location that has the best of the lake and the parks but also is in close proximity to downtown? So we did.
This is a wonderful house for people with pets. It has a small side yard that is fenced, and lots of sidewalks leading to the informal dog park at Zilker Elementary and on to Zilker Park and LadyBird lake. The house is cozy and perfect for one or two couples.
We wanted to share what our New Years guests told us in the guest book: "We loved staying in your place. Thank you for the Christmas lights and the little touches like the poinsettias. We had a great stay, it was wonderful to be able to take a cab inexpensively to downtown. We hope to be back."
Great loca. Comfy beds. Good for dog.
Arpdale House fit our needs perfectly! From our first contact for reservations up until check out, everything was organized and all instructions were very clear. The house had everything we needed, and is in a great location. We would definitely choose to stay there again!
The home is very comfortable and clean. The location is near many sites and shopping. We had a great time in Austin.
Excellent value for your dollar! Home is updated, very cute and in an excellent location; beds are comfortable and the house is very clean. The owners were awesome and allowed us late checkout so that we could go to Maria's Tacos for Sunday lunch and live music (which they recommended and it was great!). We will definitely stay here again!
This is my second time staying at this property. It is in a very cool location in Austin, among some of the best restaurants, coffee shops, music venues, food trucks, shopping. Traffic has become a bit of a concern in Austin, and where this is located gives you options on avoiding traffic.
The house is clean and comfortable. The owner is very responsive and helpful, and has a book for those who aren't local to know what is good and local. The residence has a keypad lock that makes it easy to come and go, and not have to sort out keys. There's a nice patio area when the weather is nice.
We stayed for almost 2 weeks while we visited children and grandchildren. The kitchen was sufficiently equipped to meet our cooking needs. Having Celiacs means that I have to prepare a good many of my meals. Also, having a dining table rather than just bar stools at a countertop makes the eating the meal more comfortable.
The bed was very comfortable. Both heating and cooling system worked well (temps in Feb can certainly vary!).
Best of all was the location. Bluebonnet has a protected bike lane to get you to the path along Lady Bird Lake and Zilker park. Lamar has restaurants and stores within easy walking distance and provides quick access to the highways serving Austin (except at rush hour).
Lady Bird Lake walking trails right on the river; Barton Springs Pool a mile walk or drive away; Matt's El Rancho for mexican food, Maria's Sunday Gospel Brunch is not to be missed, and Green Mesquite BBQ at Barton Springs Road and Lamar. Remember to head to Saxon Pub for Sunday night music after dinner at Maudie's, live like a local......
