Property description

The ATX House is furnished with everything you will need for a great stay in Austin. This cozy condo is thoughtfully decorated with custom 'Austin' photography and art and features a super covered patio complete with a gas BBQ grill. The bedroom features a King bed and a large plate glass window with view of the area. The open living/dining area has a table for 4 and a full size pull out couch and arm chair. There is an HDTV with DVD player and full cable and wireless internet. The kitchen is fully furnished if you plan to cook.

The ATX House is part of the Zilker Vacations family of vacation rental homes and condos in the Zilker Park area. We do everything we can to assure you the most comfortable stay possible. Be sure and read our reviews and see why we get many return guests!

Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park: We are located approx. 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 68 degree 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. Zilker Park is Austin's crown jewel, and certainly one of the most fantastic outdoor recreational areas on the planet!

Downtown Austin!: The legendary 6th Street is where you can find great live music every night of the week in dozens of bars. Don't bother driving down there, parking is a problem and it's only a $10 cab fare. Also, don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, South 1st Street, 2nd Street, 4th Street and then West 6th Street!

Alamo Drafthouse and The Highball: See a movie while eating dinner or just having a drink at Austin's favorite theater, the Alamo Drafthouse, or enjoy dinner, drinks, live music, dancing or karaoke at The Highball, both just over a mile from this condo.

Bring bikes if you're driving down, or we can help arrange discounted rental bikes for you (except for big festivals).
