Property description

The Treehouse has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath plus an extra sink and vanity in the master, a pull out couch and sleeps 4-6. There is a king size bed in the master, a full size bed in the small 2nd bedroom and a full size pull out couch in the living area.
The open living/dining room features vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling glass panels in the dining alcove and opens to a nice covered treetop patio. Enjoy the 42' HDTV with DVD in living area and an Ipod docking clock radio in the master bedroom. We have many DVD's, games and books for adults and kids alike. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook a full meal or you can grind our locally roasted organic coffee beans for a cup of coffee while you get ready to go out. Besides coffee, we offer a variety of tea, organic sugar, Splenda and enough 1/2 & 1/2 to get you through at least your first morning.

This 3rd level condo (ONLY HALF FLOOR WALK UP with parking right in front of the stairs), in a small 6 unit complex, is located less than two blocks from Barton Springs Pool, the Hike and Bike Trail and Zilker Park. Walk to Chuy's, Shady Grove, Austin Java Company and several other local Austin favorites. Cab fare to downtown 6th street area is only $10 or Lyft and Uber drivers are usually around the area.

For more information about our other vacation rentals, call or email us. We have received fantastic reviews and comments - let us show you why!

Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park: We are located about two blocks from the single best swimming pool in the universe, Barton Springs. Located in the heart of Zilker Park, use our beach towels and enjoy the spring fed, chlorine-free waters of this over 1/8 mile long watering hole. Also enjoy the hike and bike trail, boating on the river, frisbee golf, the Nature Center, the Botanical Gardens, the playground and the train for the kids or a picnic on the great lawn.

Downtown Austin!: I'm sure you've heard of the madness on 6th Street, but certainly don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, 2nd Street, 4th Street and then West 6th Street!

Higher rates apply for ACL, Formula One and SXSW. See rates page.
