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. No cars 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!
Austin is the Live Music Capital of the World! Sixth street, Rainey Street and the Warehouse District is a 10 minute drive from Zilker Park Place.

This is me in my art car. I have been a professional intuitive since 1993 and have teaching intuition classes since 1995. Presently I hold dating workshops and relationship support groups throughout the year. Somehow over the years I have become a relationship expert and have yet to find a question that I can’t answer. I enjoy local theatre and the film festivals and have found a great outlet for my reviews at the austinpost. I live in the neighborhood less than a mile from the rental. I am known for having one of the most colorful houses in this very eclectic neighborhood. The yard has been featured on the local yard art tour. The art car pictured above is my fourth. It is “Carsmos” which is decorated with a sea theme, the solar system, the city of Austin, and the different regions of earth on the hood. I am the female in the photo and my life partner is the male, who is also an artist. We have travelled a bit (mostly the U.S. and Europe) and the photos throughout the rental are ours. Color makes me feel alive and the color in the rental and in our photography is a reflection of that passion. My motto is “if there is still twenty minutes, there is time to see a museum”. Having studied art history and gone on four art history tours of Europe, I have been fortunate to have seen some of the very best European Masters and some of the greatest museums in the world. I couldn’t be happier.
Owner purchased this Townhome in 1990
Why Owner chose Zilker
I purchased the Four-Plex because of the incredible location and the highly desirable neighborhood. Although it looks like it might be a busy street, it is quiet and peaceful. I enjoy the greenery and the old trees everywhere. It is hard to get much closer to the park or to the back entrance of our famous Barton Springs Pool. It is our natural treasure. The unit is in a residential neighborhood but only blocks away are some of the best Austin restaurants located on Barton Springs Rd. Everything is close. There is no need to start a hike on Lady Bird Lake’s Hike and Bike trail when just walking out the door will add less than a mile extra to the run…one way of course. I lived in one of the units in 1990. It was hard to leave but fortunately I didn’t have to go too far. The neighbors are great and if you say “hi” they will always greet you with a big smile. Not only that but I’m sure they won’t mind helping with directions. After all, it is the Austin way.
What makes this Townhome unique
I have lived in Austin for over 35 years. I have great tourist advice. If you want to know the coolest things to do during your stay just ask. She can tell you how to reach me. Honestly, it would be hard to be in a better location, in a more comfortable environment, surrounded by the best that Austin has to offer. Have a cup of coffee, sit back, read, watch TV, or do nothing. Better yet enjoy the best of everything that Austin has to offer. It is just around the corner. You can drive, take the bus, or bike anywhere. After all my travels I still believe Austin is the best city on the planet.

Nice area. Attentive owner.
Fun, eclectic, and comfy place!
Loved the location, colors, and comfort of this wonderfully artsy townhome.
We stayed during Thanksgiving week. The kitchen was well stocked and we were able to cook a full holiday meal. It was a cozy place to stay, the bed being the most comfortable we have ever slept in. We would stay here again.
Enjoyed another stay at this great place
This was our second time to stay at this wonderful rental, cozy, close to everything, the right amount of Austin funkiness, and Lois is the best! She is so friendly and accommodating. Will continue to stay here when we come to town!
Artsy / fun townhouse.
This place is Austin funky - bright colors and artwork and even the fish tank toilet. Very comfortable and it is in a great location near Zilker Park and South Congress restaurants and night life. Lois was great and very helpful. She has everything you need in the kitchen & bathrooms plus lots of information on restaurants and places to go. The king sized bed was very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend it.
Very nice property , Great location! Very clean!
