About this home

River floating ACROSS THE STREET IS OPEN, Lady Bird Lake rentals for Kayaking and SUP are OPEN, 10 mile hike and bike trail around the lake is OPEN.
Greetings! One of our recent guests told us our home reminded her of "an open air Costa Rican experience." Thank you for taking time to look at our property. If you are not familiar with Austin, this property and location requires a HUGE FUN introduction… 😊 in a second you’ll see why. While we do not have a private pool or a beach. We do have something so UNUSUAL, spectacular and special we would love the opportunity for us to introduce you to BARTON SPRINGS Pool, the river, Ladybird Lake, Zilker Park and its potential for you. (VRBO should have a filter check box for “OH my gosh you just gotta check out this UNBELIEVABLE location” -so truly spectacular experiences wouldn't be missed.)

We are 7 minutes to ALL THAT IS DOWNTOWN AUSTIN.

Nature and the Park take center stage in this vacation style Zilker Park property.

QUOTE IS REQUIRED FOR ALL HOLIDAYS and ALL MARCH and all OCTOBER dates. (instant booking not accepted)

GREAT flex rates apply. Only $75 per person per night after the first 12 guests. (except holiday and special event periods) These flex rates offer booking confidence like an insurance policy. If you are forced to change the number of guests down the road, you can be refunded for those un-attending guests down to the base of 12. This helps your group avoid having to bear the unexpected expense of those who cannot make it. Other flat rate rentals do not give you this benefit. The rates are based on a per person basis with a base rate minimum (12 guests) and then per person additional fees apply beyond the base rate. Please enter the correct number of guests for an accurate quote...for additional info regarding rates policy see rental document or inquire. If you need to add guests later, just let us know and we can invoice you.

In the words of a guest... "A 10 minute walk gets you EVERYTHING...spring fed pool, park, rooftop bar, bike and boat rentals, brewery, amazing restaurants, food truck park, top rated BBQ & Sushi, movie theater, Irish pub, LIVE MUSIC, botanical gardens, sculpture garden... the list goes on!!!" AND just a 7 minute drive into downtown.

There are two incredible completely private independent levels to this property. THERE IS NO INTERIOR ACCESS between properties. So much room to roam & private space. On the upper level, the first thing you will see as you walk into the space is 3 sets of french doors opening off the main living space to a breezy huge wrap around deck with views of the park. An enormous picture window enhances your experience of our beautiful Park in the open concept floor plan. This property captures the true essence of the park by bringing the outdoors into your living space. In the morning or evening, with the 3 French doors open, the breeze is spectacular. The property offers a tranquil rooftop setting embodied by all natural materials including; cedar ceilings, wood and limestone counters, stone flooring and a solid 4’ granite kitchen sink. 2nd living room upstairs is luxurious and peaceful with a 70" TV if a game or movie is in order.

    Really enjoyed it all..............

    House was spacious and clean. The location was fantastic. We spent time walking or doing activities in the park each day. Best thing about the place was Lisa. She was very available, diligent and helpful with whatever we needed.

    We had the best stay in Austin! The property was beautiful, clean, and close to everything. Lisa made our stay even more seamless with easy check in/out, excellent recommendations and always making sure everything was working properly. We highly recommend this property as well as the wine tour with Chef Mike and his wife Lori. We enjoyed it thoroughly!

    A wonderful home and superb host!

    My group of 10 stayed at Lisa's wonderful Zilker house over Labor Day Weekend to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday. The house was extremely clean, pristine and perfectly furnished. It has everything you could possibly need to enjoy a weekend away. The location is incredible, just steps from Zilker Park and a very quick drive into downtown Austin. Most importantly, Lisa was an absolutely superb host -- accommodating, welcoming and easy to communicate with. We can't wait to come back and stay again!

    Wonderful house for large group--Location Location Location

    We were a group of 12 who stayed in the house from 26 December to 1 January and had a great time.    Worked out perfectly for our group.  What we liked best about the house; --Location.   So close to everything in Austin.  Zilker Park and hiking, kayaking, biking,  swimming and restaurants.   Only a 20 minute hike to downtown Austin. --Great views over Zilker park--wonderful porch and windows to enjoy the view.   Caution--a new house is being built right in front of this property--it appears that it will block most of the view from the part of the house that is on the first floor.  New house will be under construction for a few more months.   --Well equipped kitchens with everything you need for a large group.  Lots of spices and misc items that you need to cook.   --Very clean and well maintained. --Lisa, the property manager is extremely helpful.   Some of the challenges of the house for a large group; --House has 7 bedrooms but only 4 bathrooms --Bedrooms worked fine for our group but one is extremely small and another has a curtain for a door. --House is rented as two units (3 bedrooms up and 4 bedrooms down)   so there are two very private entrances to each floor of the house.  The downside is that there is no stairwell connecting the two units which would be very helpful.   There is a significant walk between the entrances that includes a fairly steep hill.  The advantage to this design is there is more privacy for a large group because both units have washer and dryers and kitchens and quiet space in one unit while gatherings are going on in the other unit.

    Beautiful House & Wonderful Stay

    When we first stumbled upon this absolutely gorgeous house, it seemed almost too good to be true. There must be a catch! But everything was as perfect as it seemed online (even more perfect if you could believe it!). The house was interior looked like it was out of a magazine, complete with this wonderful indoor/outdoor feel. Everyone was jaw-dropped. The deck was probably our favorite place to hang out during the day with sweeping views of the park. The house was clean, beds were comfy/numerous, and it was stocked with everything we needed for our large group. On top of that, it was really in the perfect location -- very easy to get around Austin with ride sharing and walking distance to awesome bars and restaurants (Shady Grove was one of our favorite spots of the trip!). Leading up to and throughout our stay, Lisa was the most thoughtful, gracious host. She was always very quick to respond, and went above and beyond to make sure to accommodate us during our stay. Really, we can't thank her enough! If you are considering this house, I would say snag it immediately! Don't wait. You won't beat it. Some of the people in our group are coming back to Austin or have friends who are coming to Austin in the coming months and they are all wanting to stay here again/telling their friends to book this house. Two thumbs way, way up!

    Fantastic House, wonderful location, attentive and professional communication with property mgmt.

    Austin is a great location to visit, and this house was a great place to call home base during our visit. The location is just a short drive from downtown, and the immediate neighborhood is a fantastic place for restaurants, shopping access to the Barton Springs Park, the SoCo shopping district, and more. The house is a two story unit - you can rent one or both floors - we rented both since we had a party of 7 people. The property has been decorated in an eclectic western style, with comfortable beds, good amenities, great social areas, and a good sized kitchen area. Highly recommend!

    What a great experience!

    From the communication with the owners to the convenience, utility and simple rustic beauty of the space, our group loved this property. We used it for a professional retreat, and the layout was just perfect - different meeting spaces, kitchen spaces that had all the utensils and pots we needed and were open enough for group cooking, fantastic porches and comfy couches...this place had it all.

    Stunning, modern, and spacious

    Our stay at Lisa’s Austin Home was spectacular. The house is absolutely gorgeous. Downtown and South Congress were both easily accessible by a short uber/lyft ride. The beautiful riverside path is just steps from the house. We loved this home. The upper and lower units are separate and sometimes rented to two different groups for the same night. We had a big group where we had both units, so we had to go outside to transition between the units because there is not an interior access method. This was the only downside of our stay but totally makes sense for the property and was more than compensated by the all around quality of the property. Lisa was impressively prompt in her responses to our questions ahead of and during our stay. I would definitely recommend this property for large group gatherings.
