About the Property
Spacious 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, pull out couch; Sleeps 4-6; Kaleidoscopic decor
The tall ceilings are awesome: the vaulted beamed knotty pine wood ceilings make the over 1000 square feet seem even bigger. The kitchen is fully equipped to handle cooking big meals, and the Whole Foods world headquarters is a short drive away. Several convenience stores are even closer.
Other amenities include: Fresh locally roasted organic coffee and fixings, washer/dryer and detergent, bath and beach towels, and a Brita water filter to keep fresh water in the refrigerator.
Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park: We are located less than 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 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.
Downtown Austin: I'm sure you've heard of the madness on 6th Street, but certainly don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, 2nd Street, 4th Street and then West 6th Street. Then see a movie while eating dinner or just having a drink at Austin's favorite theater, the Alamo Drafthouse.
*Disclosure: the tub/shower is a little hard to get out of if you have disabilities, such as bad knees, and it wouldn't be convenient for bathing small children. We do have a small baby bathtub available upon request. Also, the jets don't work. Please call to discuss your particular situation before booking this house.

About: Peach and Cynthia Reynolds - Owns Kaleido Properties real estate company in the Zilker Park/Barton Hills area for over 25 years! Peach, the Broker in the family, is an avid golfer and likes to do anything outdoors as well as garden in his Zilker area home's backyard.

Why Barton Hills, Austin, TX, USA:
We have invested in rental property in this area because we know the value of living near the park and downtown. We love living in this area and sharing it with others!
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Being within walking distance to Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool is definitely the most unique benefit but also the double shower and huge tub is pretty cool too! The kaleidoscopic art, much by Peach himself (a kaleidoscope maker for 15 years), makes it unique. There is even a handmade kaleidoscope for your use made by Peach's brother, Mark Reynolds.
