About the property

On ZILKER PARK-Barton Springs Pool/Lady Bird Lake/ 9 Minutes From Downtown

Enjoy all the richness that is Austin’s own central park, 365 amazing acres, ABSOLUTELY across the street. We have UNSURPASSED ACCESS to Lady Bird Lake and the 10 miles of hike and bike trail surrounding the lake. This is Austin’s social hub for hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding. You will be literally steps to Barton Springs Pool. * This property offers you inspired design focused on the style and relaxed appeal of Austin, with flavors of a cottage in the French countryside. Breezy sun drenched flex space opens up to the main living area with a sliding wall and 6' corrugated swinging door creating a huge entertainment social space. The vibe is "oversized loft" "and a part of the park" with stone flooring and wood ceilings. Crystal chandeliers fill the dining area and lounge spaces with sparkling light. Enjoy cooking in a fully stocked stone and wood kitchen with a luxurious marble farmers sink and custom gourmet prep island. The living/dining area is complete with 2 sets of French doors and 6 additional over-sized windows. Features include: An expansive deck off the living room, 2 impeccable stone and stucco full bathrooms with surround rainfall shower. Off the master a large fenced yard allows for any accompanying pet to roam freely. We are WALKING distance to so many of Austin’s finest dining experiences, pubs, night clubs and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Umlauff sculpture garden half a block away. This property is the complete bottom level of a luxury duplex with convenient parking by the front door. It is a spectacular property in an unsurpassed location. This is an exquisitely restored/remodeled duplex, lower level. Much like the most luxurious older hotels you can hear faint footfall from the upper level vacation rental property. Pricing has been adjusted for this potential. PLEASE INQUIRE FOR ACL AND SXSW (March 8-20) SPECIAL EVEN PERIOD RATES.

Perfect House for a perfect SXSW experience and any other experience in Austin.

  • 5 of 5

Lisa's house was amazing, the perfect view, the perfect beds and all the appliances where great. Also Lisa is the best host ever, available at all times and also super sweet and caregiving! Trully loved my stay there and we were in 7 in the house, and had plenty of room for all. Next years SXSW would love to stay there again! If i could would give 10 stars!!!!

Great property and location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful girls' weekend away at this beautiful house! It was very clean and well-maintained and Lisa was very responsive to any questions we had. We really enjoyed being so close to Zilker Park - walked everyday along the Lady Bird Hike & Bike Trail, rented bikes, swam in the Barton Springs pool - Austin is alive with activity!! We did rent a car as it was convenient at night to drive downtown to eat and listen to live music. We look forward to staying here again. Thanks for sharing you lovely home with us Lisa!

I had to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky that this place was available again! We stayed here last fall and when our travels brought us back to Austin with fingers crossed we did a search to see if it was available, AND IT WAS! (There have been a few times we had to look elsewhere). Love the improvements! What a great location and this time we went all in and used the kitchen to a fuller extent. Cooking and staying in on a rainy night was perfect. We’ll be sure to check if Lisa’s properties are available every time!

Perfect Austin Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family, including three school aged kids, just returned from a long weekend in Austin staying at this great property directly adjacent to Zilker Park. The location is perfect with kids and the property was more than advertised. Pictures don't do justice to the interior design. Lisa was very professional to deal with on the arrangements and went out of her way to ensure it was a pleasant stay. I highly recommend this property and want to go back in the summer months to enjoy the Barton Springs pool and the river activities easily within walking distance of the property.

The location was perfect and the house was clean and spacious.

  • 4 of 5

The five us us had a great time staying at Lisa’s place. The location was fantastic and the house was clean. Overall we had a fun stay. There were a few small things that would have made it a bit better - instructions for using the TV would have been helpful - we figured it out but it would have been nice to have them. There were no napkins, no aluminum foil and the toilet paper was industrial grade. When we have rented homes before using homeaway or other services I have always had experiences where the homes were well stocked.

These attractions consist of 360 acres on which visitors can ride bikes (bike rental half a mile away), hike, rent kayaks or canoes as close as 0.6 miles by foot, play volleyball or disk golf, fly kites, or stroll through the botanical gardens. While at the lake you can try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding, the world's fastest growing water sport. Barton springs road is home to many bars and restaurants, a putting range, a mini golf course, and a performing arts center. Nearby is the zach scott theater, the austin nature and science center, the south congress shops, home to first thursday, and a spectacular view of the congress bridge bats each dusk between march and november.
