About the Property

3/2 +office, Bike downtown, to Zilker Park, Barton Springs, walk to greenbelt

Great house for the summer that features amazing proximity to downtown while feeling like a retreat in the woods. Two greenbelt entrances nearby for hiking and swimming. 5-10 minutes to Austin's best restaurants, bars, live music venues, the convention center, the Botanical Gardens, the flagship Whole Foods, Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, Zach Theatre and the Long Center, Broken Spoke Dance Hall, and two minutes to the hike and bike trail on a protected bike lane which takes you downtown and all over Austin.

The house is over 2000 sq ft. and has 3 large bedrooms plus an office. The master bedroom has a queen, the second bedroom has a twin, and the third has an American Leather brand queen sleeper sofa with the highest quality foam. Both master and twin bed have organic mattresses! The living room couch has a ratchet system that allows it to lie flat as a double bed. There is also a fold-out cot for 1 and an air mattress queen. Altogether you can sleep 8. There are two full bathrooms. Master has separate bath and shower.

The house is equipped with Wifi, Roku, Netflix, DVD Player.

The outdoor deck spans the back of the house, and comes with a Gas BBQ. There are woods in the backyard so it feels like a cabin retreat. Top quality playground equipment make it child friendly.

The kitchen is well stocked with all the appliances you might need: Fridge with water/ice maker, Stove, Microwave, Toaster oven, Vitamix, Tea Maker, Waffle Maker, Crock Pot, Coffee Maker.

The house also has double water filtration--a whole home filtration system to remove chlorine, and a reverse osmosis filter in the kitchen for drinking water. Everyone tells us you can really tell how much better the water tastes.

We can also rent you our car (Mazda 3 HB) which is listed separately on a car rental website. We make this available exclusively to guests at our house at a greatly discounted rate.

1 mile from the Hike and Bike Trail
5 minute drive to Downtown

We'll stock the fridge with your favorite breakfast foods and snacks from Whole Foods so you'll have food upon arrival.

Also available at no extra charge: three adult Trek bicycles, two small child bicycles, and a tagalong (co-pilot) which can be attached to one of the adult bicycles.

Due to the City of Austin's short-term rental regulations, no more than six unrelated adults are allowed to stay in a single-family residence in Austin, Texas.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Nina is a newborn and family photographer and Mike is a software engineer. We enjoy biking on the hike and bike trail which starts near our house and goes downtown and along the Town Lake. We also enjoy tubing in the creek right by the house when there's water. If you want to see reviews of our property they can be found on air b and b which is what we've used mostly up till now.

Why the Owner Chose Zilker, Austin, TX, USA:
Beautiful hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings and open space which is flooded with light. It feels like a cabin retreat in the woods yet it's minutes from downtown and all Austin's greatest attractions—Zilker park, Botanical Gardens, Umlauf Sculture Garden, Barton Springs Pool, the best restaurants, dance halls and clubs. Quiet, safe neighborhood with all the action right around the corner.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Barton Hills park is one block away. It has a covered basketball court, playscape, and two baseball fields, and it's a nice place to meet new friends. The trailhead into the beautiful woods is right behind the school. It's fun to hike across the creek to Taco Deli on the other side! Trampoline and monkey bars in backyard!
