Welcome and thank you for considering our property! Barton Bungalow is a charming two-bedroom, two-bath vacation rental home in the heart of Austin, which can accommodate up to 6 adults. Whether you're coming to experience the 'Third Coast's' world-class music and art scene, participate in Austin's abundant outdoor activities, or simply explore the great restaurants, shopping, and funky vibe that make Austin a top-rated travel destination and place to live, Barton Bungalow is your perfectly-Austin 'home away from home.'

Austin Attractions: Located just south of Lady Bird/Town Lake in hip Barton Heights, Barton Bungalow is within easy walking distance of some of Austin's best attractions: Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park (site of the Austin City Limits Music Festival and the Trail of Lights), the Long Performing Arts and Palmer Event Centers, the hike-and-bike trail and Lady Bird/Town Lake, Restaurant Row, and Austin's newest shopping district, SoLa (South Lamar). You're also just minutes by car, bike, bus, or cab from the center of downtown and the 6th Street, Warehouse (4th Street) and 2nd Street entertainment districts, the Texas State Capitol, and the University of Texas.

The house is an updated and expanded bungalow that combines the best of old and new and is decorated with eclectic and thoughtful touches to make you feel immediately at home. All of the standard amenities (see list below) are found in the inviting indoor spaces; the professionally landscaped yard that extends from the rear screened porch provides a welcome retreat after your busy days exploring the city. Easy access to all Austin offers and comfortable privacy - the best of both worlds.

We look forward to your visit!

About Eric Peabody

I moved to Austin in 1991 to escape the Midwest cold and attend graduate school at the University of Texas. This was the first house I ever purchased. I was so attached to the house that I couldn't sell it when I moved to get a little more space in 2003. I still live in the same area -- only about 12 blocks away.

Eric Peabody purchased this house in 1997

Charming, convenient to everything

  • 5 of 5

The house is in great condition and in a fun area within walking distance to so many area attractions. The kitchen is equipped with everything required for a great stay, and the beds were comfortable. Eric was particularly helpful, and went the extra mile when a member of our party forgot a wallet after we checked out.

The Perfect Spot in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great trip to Austin! The home was perfect for us. The location was great for traveling with two teenagers. They could walk to Zilker Park and the juice bar on Barton Springs Rd. The home is in a quiet neighborhood that is in a convenient location for getting around Austin. The home is very clean, well appointed and had everything we needed for our stay. The front and back porches were a great bonus that you don't find in a lot of other properties. We will definitely stay here again when we come to Austin.

Girls' weekend

  • 5 of 5

Three long-time friends and I came to Austin to celebrate our 60th birthdays. The bungalow was perfect for us - plenty of room to spread out, and a great location! The weather was perfect for enjoying time on the screened-in porch. The house was very well equipped. The only suggestion would be dish towels in the kitchen. This will definitely be my go-to place for future girls' trips.

Fun family weekend!

We had a great weekend at the Barton Bungalow! Thanks, Eric! The house was comfortable and clean, everything was as promised. Nice back yard and lovely screened in porch! Super quiet neighborhood. And best of all it was easy walking distance to my son's house in Zilker!

Austin's Barton Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the convenient location. It was spacious for the four of us and we even had Thanksgiving dinner while we were there. The owners surprised with a bottle of wine for our dinner! We enjoyed the screened in porch area and found that the house had everything we needed during our stay. We hope to rebook it for another trip to Austin to visit our daughter!

Great, cute, house close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Great place in the middle of everything! Rented for an extended 3 month stay, landlord was attentive and I walked or Ubered everywhere. Close to Zilker Park and all that makes Austin fun (but in a nice relaxing setting which made you feel part of the city).
