Zilker house description

Our spacious 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment occupies the entire second story of a restored stone house built in the 1940's. It offers a roomy, separate study, hardwood floors, loads of natural light and vintage charm.

You can rent the treetop suite to sleep 2, or you can combine it with one or both of the downstairs units to sleep a total of 4 or 6. To see the downstairs units, please enter their listing numbers in the VRBO search bar: 442385 (1 bedroom unit) and 423250 (studio).

All 3 units have clean, crisp linens, quality furnishings, and original art. Our WiFi connection is good, and the landscaped patios are a great place to enjoy the quiet of an established Austin neighborhood only five minutes from downtown or the SoCo district, and walking distance from the increasingly popular South Lamar ('SOLA') district.

We offer bikes for you to explore the many things to do near the house. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, check out the greenbelt along Barton Creek or Barton Springs Pool--each about a mile away. If you are looking for great food, you are just around the corner from the iconic Matt's El Rancho and the fabulous 'Restaurant Row' on Barton Springs Road. Walk to the ACL music festival or enjoy live outdoor summer theater at Zilker Park. Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Zilker Botanical Garden are beautiful places to explore and picnic. At the end of the day, dance to live country music at the locally-famous hole in the wall--the Broken Spoke. Or check out the HighBall retro bowling alley/karaoke bar and neighboring Alamo Drafthouse Cinema--uniquely Austin experiences.

If you want to venture outside the neighborhood, we're also close to the University of Texas and the Highland Lakes just west of town. We are happy to recommend things to do and places to see.

                      Location

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      We are only 5 minutes from downtown, yet nestled in the quiet of an established Austin neighborhood. We have bikes to explore all there is to see and do within just minutes of the house, including the Barton Creek greenbelt, Zilker Park (home to Barton Springs pool and various festivals and outdoor theater), excellent restaurants and shops, and local night spots like the Broken Spoke and the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. In fact there is so much to see and do in our area that we have published a neighborhood guide for our guests.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About the owner: We are a husband and wife who love old houses. We were each restoring our own old house when we met in 1998. We now have 4 young children and have left our 'real jobs' behind to pursue restoring old houses full time. We're so thrilled to get to offer our homes to you through VRBO!

                      Why the Owner Chose Zilker:
                      Location and character. Close to downtown, yet nestled in a quiet, established neighborhood with mature trees and great opportunities to explore nature. A unique structure--beautiful natural stone and concrete block construction originally built as a carriage house but easily converted to unique rental apartments.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Original, natural building materials give the house character and soul. Clean and manicured outdoor areas extend the enjoyable space of the apartments. Clean and crisp linens and furnishings make for a relaxing and enjoyable retreat.
