About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 1050 square feet, sleeps 6

Explore Zilker Park from your front door. This architect designed 1955 duplex is built into a hillside with terraced gardens out your front windows and treetops out the back. At 1050 square feet this first floor 1 bedroom is spacious! An easy walk to restaurants, coffee shops, live music venues and all that makes Austin special. Downtown Austin is less than a mile away, an easy walk or bike ride on the lovely hike and bike trail.

Barton Creek Greenbelt: One of Austin's premier mountain biking, hiking, trail running and rock climbing destinations. This 8 mile long, 809 acre greenbelt begins less than 1/4 a mile away from our front door. Beautiful and fun in any season. During wet weather the creek is a kayak, tubing and swimming destination with numerous small waterfalls and fun rapids.

Austin's Hike and Bike Trail: Easy access to downtown is car-free on this waterfront trail, 1/2 block from our front door. Popular with bikers, walkers and joggers, trees and wildflowers provide shade and beauty along this 10.3 mile trail which loops around the lake. Several pedestrian bridges cross into downtown with access points to live music venues, restaurants, shopping, museums, concert halls, the opera house and beyond. Don't miss the Congress Avenue Bridge, home to the largest Urban Bat Colony in the world!

Serene home for relaxing after a long day

  • 5 of 5

We were in Austin for a competition at the conference center and wanted a calm space away from downtown and close to Zilker Park. This place was perfect. Everything we needed in the home was available. The wifi was fast and easy to use. The location was perfect for both time in the park, bicycle riding and our time downtown.

Awesome home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is so charming; tucked away in the trees. The owner, Amanda, was so sweet and easy to work with. She really has the home organized and provides items you'd typically forget to bring. I would highly recommend this house; easy access to Zilker Park, Barton Springs and 6th street!

Lots of space, very relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. We stayed there with our three kids (4, 2 and 10 months) for the weekend. The location is great, it was an easy drive anywhere. There are a ton of great places to eat and lots of food trucks nearby. Zilker park was so much fun - we could have spent a week there. The house felt like home. There was coffee in the freezer ready for us, movies for the kids to watch. It was so relaxing. Thank you Amanda for a great place to stay! We will definitely be back!
