About this home

Greetings! HAVE IT ALL! Right here. 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 water "front," we do have something so UNUSUAL, spectacular and special we would love the opportunity 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 location” so truly amazing sights and sounds could stand out. ;)


Thought went into every detail of this home's design to create the ultimate Zilker Park exotic vacation get away. We are 7 minutes TO ALL THAT IS DOWNTOWN. We do not have a view of the park but WE ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT NEXT TO IT AND BARTON SPRINGS POOL. NO RENTAL IS CLOSER. 726 square feet of outdoor living deck space at this property.



Please read complete description for ALL details. :)



This property sits 379 steps from ALL that is SO MUCH FUN WATER ACTIVITY and Park in Austin. Here, we are Zilker Park.



Briefly, Zilker Park is 358 acres of gorgeous center city park land and within it lies Barton Springs Pool which is fondly described as the crown jewels of Austin -The pool itself measures a whopping 3 ACRES in size, and is fed from underground springs with an average temperature of 68-70 degrees, ideal for year-round swimming. It is NOTHING shy of spectacular. *** Barton Springs Pool is currently requiring reservations. Just google Barton Springs Pool. to access reservations.



In addition to Barton Springs Pool, this property has immediate access to Lady Bird Lake, the river from the pool to the lake, all of Zilker Park and the 10 miles of hike and bike trail surrounding the lake. This is Austin’s social hub for hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding….RENTALS for ALL of these incredibly fun activities are within WALKING distance. Barton Creek Greenbelt also has a trail head in the park. IF you are a WATER lover, a nature lover, a CITY lover and a FOODIE!!- THIS property is for YOU!!



IN THE WORDS OF A GUEST... "A 10 minute walk gets you EVERYTHING...spring fed pool, lake, river, park, rooftop bar, bike and boat rentals, brewery, amazing restaurants, food truck park, top rated BBQ & Sushi, movie theater, LIVE MUSIC, botanical gardens, sculpture garden... the list goes on!!!"

ABOUT THE DESIGN: This property offers you inspired design focused on the style and relaxed appeal of Austin, with flavors of Costa Rica. The overall vibe is "oversized loft" and absolutely “a part of the park" with incredible floors made with huge individual rough flagstones, cool limestone walls and cedar wood ceilings. Restoration Hardware crystal chandeliers fill the dining area and lounge spaces with sparkling light. A breezy sun-drenched flex space at the far end of the home opens up to the main living area creating a huge social space. This area is so comfortable, relaxing and beautiful with banks of windows and a skylight. It is the perfect entertainment space for a large group. As a conversation/entertainment space, 2 overstuffed XL futon beds make up the sectional sofa. If your group happens to need a third bedroom then, for this room, a gorgeous 7‘ suspended cedar wall slides over and a 6’ corrugated swinging door cleverly and privately

tucks this space away with its own en-suite. This space is a MUST SEE truly unique, fabulously fun and fully customizable for your needs any time day or night.
Enjoy cooking in a fully stocked stone and wood kitchen with a luxurious marble farmer’s sink and custom gourmet prep island. The living/dining area is complete with 2 sets of French doors and 6 additional over-sized windows. While we do not have a view, a massive wrap around deck offers 4 distinct beautiful outdoor living spaces. Two "living" areas, a hightop table for 2, Two chaise lounges and an outdoor firepit. There are 2 impeccable stone and stucco full bathrooms with rainfall showers. Off the master with king bed, a large fenced yard allows for any accompanying pet to roam freely. The 2nd bedroom is small but has queen bed and 2 custom built in XL twin bunk beds, very whimsical. The 3rd bedroom, as described above, when closed off is just plain cool and comfy with XL twin beds. In the dining space, a 7.5’ custom cedar (built in place) table comfortably seats 8.



We are WALKING distance to so many of Austin’s finest dining experiences, pubs, night clubs and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Umlauff sculpture garden half a block away. This property is the complete private (no interior access) bottom level of a luxury duplex with convenient parking by the front door. It is a truly spectacular property in an unsurpassed location. The upper level of this property can be found on this site as well. 😊



Super exciting news.... We have installed 16' bamboo around the deck creating an instant TROPICAL PARADISE!!!! Truly it is nothing shy of spectacular and will provide year round TRANQUIL exotic beauty.



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



**** GREAT flex rates apply to this property. THIS is like a GREAT INSURANCE POLICY.

(Base rate for 4 guests) This helps your group avoid having to bear the unexpected expense of those who cannot make it. Only $65.00 per person/per night for each addt'l guest after the base rate.... Please see rental document for complete description. Other flat rate rentals do not give you this benefit. (Flex rates do not apply to holiday and special event periods and some March and October dates.)



Youtube has a great video to show you what all the hub bub is about across the street...... enter "Barton Springs Pool" and the Day Tripper video shows you the real deal. :) (this site doesn't allow posts directly to the link-sorry)



MAYBE ADD TO ALL THIS CRAZY FUN ?????....we have another amazing opportunity for you.... We are nothing shy of being THRILLED and HONORED to be associated with a FABULOUS private Austin chef, Mike Thompson. Mike has been to our properties and can be contracted privately to cater your in home event...whether it be a dinner, brunch or perhaps an in home cooking class or culinary demonstration. Please see his website for the amazing services his company offers....which we might add... we know from personal experience that his privately chauffeured hill country wine tour is INCREDIBLE!!!!!! :)

Just google NOLA kitchen for all the details.



Since we are so close to the park and downtown a great option would be to have bicycles delivered to you

and perhaps do a guided tour. This can be set up by you through Mike's Bikes and Tours. SO - MUCH - FUN!!!


This property is an exquisitely restored/remodeled LUXURY duplex, lower level. The upper duplex is a vacation rental property as well. Much like the most luxurious older hotels you can hear some noise transference. If you are sensitive to this, perhaps another property would better suit you.

    Can’t say enough good things!

    Everything about this property was amazing, from the lovely and welcoming decor/layout to the phenomenal location to the exceptional host who made everything so perfect for our stay. The property is the ideal place to hang out with friends or family, with terrific common spaces both inside and out, and really thoughtfully done. And our host really made our stay special with great suggestions and local tips to fully take advantage of our visit. We had a terrific time and definitely hope to come back soon!

    Amazing!!

    This was our first trip to Austin and Lisa was beyond helpful. The house is so gorgeous and location was spot on. The rental comes with everything you will need and more! The house was spotless and enough space inside and out! We do plan on booking with her again when we go to visit our daughter-my daughter loved this house so much she wanted to rent it while in school! Thank you Lisa for your kindness and hospitality, we could not have asked for more!!

    Amazing property all around!

    Our stay was simply amazing. Lisa was wonderful --- she made sure every detail was taken care of. Check-in was exactly as she stated and was super easy. The home was immaculate and oh so beautiful. It has everything you need : the kitchen was clean and had all the convenient appliances and was well stocked with the basics. The bedrooms were adorable and comfortable (my 3 kids loved staying in the bunk room!) The bathrooms were large and well stocked with the necessities. The general living spaces were so so so cute, confortable, and roomy. We enjoyed family movie night one evening on the super comfy sofas! The extra bonus room that turns into a bedroom with private bathroom is genius....beautiful room with lovely skylights overhead. The Location!!! ---- we loved loved loved the proximity to Zilker Park. We went for morning runs, walks with our dogs, and enjoyed the field for football, field hockey...... you name it! We strolled to the hot springs and enjoyed the beauty and adventure of the area. It rained the day we planned to go kayaking, but we visited the site which is a very very short walk from the house. Seriously, the location is perfect and we can't wait to go back for the water activities. And although this property is directly across the street from Zilker Park, it still maintains a quiet and peaceful environment. It was super quiet in the evenings which was great for sleeping/bedtime. And I have to mention Lisa again! She checked in with us during our stay to make sure everything was as expected. She is so professional, kind and welcoming!

    Absolutely Stunning!!!!!!

    This property is so amazing. The decor is absolutely beautiful, comfortable with separate spaces to relax. both inside and outside. It has everything you need to cook a meal. Plenty of room for the kids, lots of local magazines for ideas for your vacation. The Barton Springs pool was the neatest thing to see and experience and is literally steps from the house. The outdoor space at the home was a delight to eat breakfast, read a book or have a glass wine,. It was beautifully decorated with plenty of seating for conversation. If a beautiful house, walking distance to the Barton Springs Pool and just minutes away from all the music on South Congress is your thing, look no further and book this house. Lisa responded within minutes of questions I had about local restaurants. Thank you Lisa for a wonderful experience in your beautiful place.

    Excellent accommodations and perfect location

    Our stay in Barton Springs was great! I went with 4 other friends to celebrate my 50th birthday and we had a blast. The apartment is super cute and spacious. We were all comfortable sleeping and just hanging out. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The location was the BEST! We spent a lot of time walking to the springs and along the paths around the lake. We could also walk to restaurants. We would definitely stay there again!
