About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 4. Private hot tub! Lovely patio. Great location.

We call this property The Traveler because we realize that folks travel from all over the world to com visit Austin, and we wanted to provide a theme that might just make you feel right at home.

This lovely two bedroom, one bath duplex features a king bed, queen bed, private hot tub, and lots of patio space to enjoy the weather. Zilker Park is just about a mile and a half or so away, and downtown is just 3 miles.

NOTE: This property is next door to two similar units so if you have a larger group we have plenty of room available! Just ask!

Walk to the Barton Creek Greenbelt, there's a neighborhood entrance just around the block!

Getting downtown with Uber or Lyft is the easiest way to do it - since parking is a bummer down there. It's roughly $10-15 fare.

We are located just one block off of South Lamar so there's tons of wonderful restaurants, juice bars, taco houses, bars, book shops, and even a gallery with the largest collection of original Dr Seuss drawings - all within a couple of blocks!

We have wifi and cable.

Parking is all done on the curb right by the front door. It's not a busy street so there's always easy free parking!

The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you'd need to cook up a feast. The stove is electric. We also provide a coffee basket for you with organic Ruta Maya beans, grinder, filters, creamer and sugar.

Why Jay Reynolds chose Barton Hills

We bought this property because we love the neighborhood. We love being close to The Greenbelt, Kerbey Lane Cafe, downtown Austin, and Zilker Park.

What makes this house unique

You can walk around the corner, into a neighborhood Greenbelt entrance and feel like you're out in the middle of nowhere. It's beautiful out there and an amazing way to escape into nature. Also, being so close to downtown, but not IN downtown has it's serious benefits.

Friendly host and home is close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

The house was convenient and a perfect location. It was clean and well decorated with everything you need. A great back yard with plenty of area to relax and a nice neighborhood for evening walks. I enjoyed my stay and highly recommend the house.

Great location/fun time in Austin!

  • 4 of 5

After an early hiccup with double booking the property, we had a great time at The Traveler. If I could give the stay 4 1/2 stars (vs 4) I would. Jay was a delight and the house was the perfect size for 4 people. Plus great location near downtown. And, hot tub on the patio was so great!

Gorgeous rental in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

A classic Austin home in a location close to Zilker Park. Everything was clean and tidy with so much information about the amazing city! I would stay here time and time again...and I plan to. Austin rules and so does Vacation Cake. The process to rent is so simple and everyone I dealt with was friendly and helpful. Thanks Jay!

This is a Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I'm conflicted. I really enjoyed staying here. Great Location, great floor plan and very convenient. Some fantastic eating and drinking places out your door (Gordough's, Matt's El Ranchero) and the #803 express bus downtown is less than 5 minute walk.

Quiet, peaceful nights, comfortable beds and a starlit hot tub.

The owner is super attentive and responsive. There's even a Giant Jenga game.

This is a great place, can we keep it a secret?

Perfect Weekend Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! It was all we expected and then some. Excellent communication on behalf of the property management team. They provided countless ways to contact them (if needed, which we didn't because our stay went smoothly) and some great recommendations on things and places to do and see.

We enjoyed the hot tub. It was the highlight of our stay. Rest and relaxation at the need of a long workweek. If you are reading this, rest assured, you cannot go wrong by booking this place. It is located in a nice, quiet neighborhood? We are looking forward to our next visit.

Welcome to 78704! This property, which we call The Traveler, is located in the heart of the most famous zip code in Austin. Dozens of fantastic restaurants, bars, parks, trails, ice cream shops, etc are within just a few blocks. Downtown Austin is only about 2.5 miles away.

Just a few blocks down the road you have a neighborhood entrance to The Barton Creek Greenbelt...which is like the central nervous system for exploring Austin. You can hike down to Zilker Park without ever seeing a striped road.
