Tarrytown House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4-10

This luxury house is great for families, bachelorette & wedding parties, film crews....

This house was built in 2008 by one of Austin’s leading architects. We chose the lot for its size and proximity to Downtown and in order to save a 100+ year old oak tree that was going to be cut down.

You enter the house and immediately come upon a huge living area with 12 foot ceilings. The floor plan is all open – the dining, living and kitchen area is one huge space. The kitchen was designed for a gourmet chef. The marble counters are enormous. There is a 6 burner stove with an over-sized oven. All appliances are stainless steel.

The house was built with all allergen free material and is Eco-Friendly. There is only sustainable wood floor – no carpet. The paint is no-voc. The insulation is jean insulation – not the pink stuff. The cabinets are formaldehyde free…. Our intention in making these higher-end choices was to create a calm-feeling and healthy space. The house sits 6 feet off the ground which makes you feel like you are living in a big tree house.

Every room has large windows, most of which center on the big, beautiful old oak tree in the backyard.

The dining room area has a large steel table that sits 6-10. The chairs are hans-wegner wishbone design. The living room area has an organic couch from G Romano that is on top of an oushak rug and a real wood-burning fireplace. These rooms look out through large windows onto the tree as well.

The backyard is one of the largest you'll find in the heart of the city.

Off the dining area is a full bath next to a lounging room with a big screen tv, blue ray player and lots of movies.

The big bedrooms and 2 additional full bathrooms are upstairs. Big windows, design furniture, comfortable beds and linens are in each room.

The location is great. The house is in a quiet up-scale neighborhood that is still only a short walk to Zilker park where ACL (Austin City Limits) is and the river (Town Lake or Lady Bird Lake) that runs through downtown. In addition, you can walk to several nice restaurants, a grocery store and a great juice place – JuiceLand. We are only 5 minutes by car or bus to downtown Austin where all the shops, restaurants and bars are located. The popular 2nd street is only 4 minutes away.

There are 5 bedrooms:

- #1 - King bed and a day bed

- #2 - Queen bed

- #3 - Designer sofabed folds into comfortable queen bed in the lounge/media room

- #4 - Full bed

- #5 - Full bed

- We also have 2 blow up mattresses available upon request.

- We have plenty of towels and linens for everyone.

About Owner

We are a nice family that moved from San Francisco to Austin about 11 years ago. We like traveling, fun family time and great food.

Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why Owner chose Austin

We built this home for ourselves, with all of the love, care, and attention to detail that goes into a home you live in. Now we travel frequently and thus can share our great house with others when we are gone. It is our intention that this home provides everyone who stays here the space for creating great memories and acts as the incredible jumping off point for exploring central Austin that it always has for us.

What makes this house unique

The kitchen with the stools around the island is amazing for cooking or just looking out onto the huge oak tree with some great coffee or wine.

The Best Vacation Home Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my bachelorette party in April 2015 for 3 nights, and I can honestly say that it was hard for us to leave! This house is AMAZING! The breathtaking layout and ambience really does make you feel like you are in a 1st class tree house! Everything was so clean and organized, and we were well stocked with everything we could have possibly needed. We had more than enough sleeping and getting ready space for 8 girls. The location is great as well! The house was about a 5 minute Uber ride to everything we wanted to do and the neighborhood is beautiful and very safe. But the best part was the owner, Brian, who was so great to work with while we were planning. He responds quickly to emails and was always happy to answer any questions I had! He also gave us a neighbor's number incase of emergencies while we were there! Our trip could not have gone better and was so smooth. I highly recommend this rental for any trip to Austin!

Perfect for 3 days of ACL

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had a great time for a long weekend and the house location was perfect for walking to ACL and surrounding eateries. We had 2 friends stop buy for lunch one day and they were blown away by the house, the setting, the neighborhood and they suggested they would rent the house next year if we didn't. Ha. Good luck with that. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms are large and more than met our needs. Love the kitchen / den / dining room together overlooking the majestic oak tree. Very scenic. Would highly recommend and expect we will stay there again numerous times in the future. Brian was very easy to work with and assured me we were in walking distance to everything and he was exactly right.

We could have easily had 3 or 4 more guests stay with us without feeling crowded. I highly recommend this house.

Lovely place

  • 4 of 5

The house was stunning and was a treat to spend time in and host guests in. We did have a couple issues with some things that were broken, but the owner fixed the problems right away. Owner was extremely pleasant to work with. I would recommend this house as an awesome hangout for 6-10 people!

If I could rate this house 10 STARS I would! It was the perfect house for my bachelorette weekend! I was initially very impressed with the pictures online but it ended up being even better in person. Brian was so quick to respond to all of our questions and was such a pleasure to work with. He even allowed us to check in early on our arrival day so some of the girls could decorate and have things looking nice by the time I showed up. If I even need a place to stay in Austin for a large group of people I'll for sure be rebooking this property. Thanks Brian for everything!
