Property description

The House of Rock is a new addition to the VacationCake family of Austin rentals and we are exited about it because it offers impeccable location and a bit more breathing room for families to spread out. With a king bed, two full size beds, and two twin beds, we feel this offers groups of various sizes and make-up a nice array of sleeping options.

We actually in the process of furnishing out the 4th bedroom to increase capacity at this property a little bit!

This property is located very close to downtown Austin, about 2 miles. Zilker Park is about a mile away and you are within walking distance to several of Austin's favorite restaurants in the Bouldin Creek/SoCo area!

When you're ready to hit the town again, you're only minutes away from Downtown, UT, Barton Springs,The Greenbelt, SoCo and more.

Car: Recommended

This home is ideally located in the Zilker/Barton Hills neighborhood close to everything you've come to Austin to see, eat, hear or do. Delicious Tex-Mex food is 2 blocks away at Maria's Taco Express or Matt's Famous El Rancho. The age-old vegetarian vs. barbecue debate can be hashed out at Mr. Natural's & Art's Rib House which are both about 4 blocks away. Would your Texas vacation be completed with a visit to the last great Texas honky-tonk? Put on your boots & head over to The Broken Spoke, about a 1/2 mile from the house. Ready for a dip in Barton Springs? It's only 1.5 miles from the house -- you can bike there and to the Hike & Bike Trail. Downtown is 2.0 miles away & a city bus line runs down Lamar 2 blocks from your front door.

Other Activities: Live music venues, theaters, museums, restaurants
