Property description

Relaxed yet elegant central Austin home available for rent throughout the year. Located in a beautiful, established neighborhood within a few miles of downtown, the lake, and the hike and bike trail. Whether you are coming for entertainment, to explore the outdoors, or just wanting a quiet retreat, staying here will enable you to experience all that Austin has to offer.

The Space:
Our spacious home is located in the heart of Tarrytown, an established neighborhood just west of downtown with amazing trees and easy access to Lake Austin and the Lady Bird Lake running & biking trail.

Within a few blocks of our home, you can pick up a paved trail that will take you via foot or bike safely down to Zilker Park where ACL, Blues on the Green, and many other festivals & concerts are held. This is less than a 2 mile ride.

Our home is also only 2.5 miles from 6th Street/Downtown, 3.8 miles from the Convention Center, 4.5 miles from Rainey Street, and 17 miles from the Circuit of the Americas.

Our relaxed, but elegant Eastern Seaboard style home is 4200 square feet and has two screened porches for relaxing and dining - perfect when you want a break from the Texas heat!

Our home has been newly renovated with wood floors throughout, granite and marble counter tops, and state of the art appliances.

Our home is located on a double lot, and boasts a large back yard and front yard with great trees.

Amenities include:
Outdoor patio and grill
Front screened porch
Large back screened porch
5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms
2 living rooms
Dining room
Kitchen with breakfast area
2 additional rooms (currently offices)
Laundry room
Cable TV
Wireless access

Bedrooms are as follows: 1 room (master) with a queen bed, 2 rooms with double/full beds, 1 room with twin beds, and 1 room with queen bed frame & deluxe queen air mattress (see photo).

Please note: Nightly price does not include applicable hotel taxes which will be invoiced separately.

The Neighborhood:
Here you will experience the charm of a beautiful, established neighborhood yet still have the convenience of being close to the lake and to downtown Austin.

In addition to being close to all of the downtown amenities, we have lots of green space in our neighborhood including multiple parks that are within less than a mile from our home.

Reed Park is a great place in Tarrytown for outdoor lovers. The 6-acre park contains a playground, a swimming pool, a multipurpose field, picnic tables and a barbeque pit. There is also a creek and a nature trail.

Triangle Park is a great park for children, with a large field, swing sets, slides and monkey bars.

Enfield Park has a large multipurpose field, great play equipment, a pool and two tennis courts.

Tarrytown’s Lions Municipal Golf Course has been around since 1934 and has hosted many famous golfers.

The Mayfield Preserve is a 22-acre park on the edge of Tarrytown (about 1.5 from our home) that offers beautiful gardens, colorful peacocks and ponds with water lilies.

Deep Eddy Pool is a nice place to take a dip when the weather is warm (1.5 miles away).

Lady Bird Lake (about 1.5 miles away) offers hike and bike trails, kayak, and stand up paddle board rentals.

Getting around:
You have multiple options to get around Austin.

Uber/Lyft/Taxi: Our location (less than 3 miles from downtown) is ideal for a quick and easy taxi ride

Bus stop: There is a bus stop just a couple of blocks away on Exposition.

Owner info

About the owner: Our family loves being outside, whether grilling and relaxing at home or taking advantage of the many activities Austin has to offer. We've found that Austin has an abundance of options for visitors and residents alike. The hard part is narrowing down how to spend your time!

Why the Owner Chose Tarrytown, Austin, TX, USA:
Our family selected this home based on the charm of the neighborhood and the proximity to downtown Austin, Lady Bird Lake, and Lake Austin. It's close enough to be a short bike ride, cab ride or drive to all the entertainment and restaurants downtown, yet distanced enough to provide a quiet respite when you need it. And, for outdoor enthusiasts, our home is also uniquely situated to provide quick and easy access to many activities including hiking, biking, trail running, paddle boarding, rowing, water skiing, name it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being able to quickly be in an outdoor paradise - whether hiking up Mt. Bonnell, running around Lady Bird Lake, or waterskiing on Lake Austin, is a huge plus. We also enjoy riding our bikes down the trails for safe and easy access to multiple Austin festivals and events at Zilker Park.
