                      Enjoying the beauty surrounding this great Barton Springs area house 05/19/2010

                      VRBO Bear stayed here:


                      I just got back from Austin and couldn’t wait to tell you about this wonderful home just minutes from downtown, yet tucked away in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. It was everything a Bear could want. This home is surrounded by trees making it feel quite secluded. I truly felt right at home. The master bedroom had a screened in deck with the ambiance of a treehouse, perfect for relaxing with a book or enjoying your morning breakfast. But that wasn’t all! The master bedroom boasts a huge flat screen TV and a bathroom ‘just right’ for a spa get-away! The shower with multiple shower heads and sunken bath will pamper you like royalty.

                      Just beyond the back deck is a private apartment over the garage with full kitchen living area and bedroom. The other 3 bedrooms in the main house each had their own bathroom and roomy closet space. With sleeping accommodations for 10, this property is a great find for larger groups visiting the Austin area. The deck off the kitchen with BBQ grill provides plenty of comfortable space for outdoor entertaining.

                      There’s much to see and do in Austin. I enjoyed walking along South Congress (called SoCo by the locals) and seeing the many varieties of restaurants and shops. There’s an abundance of dining experiences from casual fare offered out of streamlined campers and eaten on picnic tables, to eclectic diners, to myriad upscale fine dining restaurants. You’ll want to come back and try it all. I also had to visit 6th Street to take in the sites and sounds, where you’ll see why Austin is known as the “Live Music Capital of the world.”

                      Whether you enjoy peaceful parks or the musical nightlife, there’s something for everyone to enjoy within a short distance of this lovely, spacious and oh, so inviting home in the heart of Austin.
