Property description

Welcome to The Garner Hideout!

This cozy guest house is in the Zilker ‘hood that marks the entryway to South Central Austin. The neighborhood sits on a limestone bluff over the 350-acre Zilker Park. This is the home of the Austin City Limits music fest and of Austin’s spring fed soul—Barton Springs pool.

From The Garner Hideout, walk west into the sunset to dip in Austin’s coolest pool, mountain bike along Barton Creek, stroll through the Botanical Gardens, romp on the Zilker’s playscape or ride the Zilker Zepher train. Don't miss the gorgeous Umlauf Sculpture Garden, it's a true urban oasis.

Just down the hill to Restaurant Row on Barton Springs Road - where you'll find Austin Java, Chuy's Tex Mex, and Uncle Billy's BBQ. And shortly from there you can make your way to Lady Bird Lake, where you can rent a kayak or canoe or circumnavigate the lake on Lady Bird’s hike and bike trails. At dusk, run, paddle or pedal under the Congress Ave. bridge, home to the nation’s largest urban bat colony. Just across the lake looms the downtown skyline and the Whole Foods’ mother store, a new Trader Joe's, and much much more.

Walk easily to the Alamo Drafthouse and several of Austin hot-spots like Vox, Shake Shack, Uchi, Cantina Italian, Medici Coffee, The Gibson and HighBall.

You're just a shot hop over to South Congress’ funky shops and restaurants and less than two miles away is Sixth Street’s and all the madness.

Zilker Neighborhood

The entryway to South Central Austin, the Zilker ‘hood sits on a limestone bluff over the 350-acre Zilker Park. This is the home of the Austin City Limits music fest and of Austin’s spring fed soul—Barton Springs pool. Follow the sunset west from the house to dip in Austin’s coolest pool, mountain bike along Barton Creek, stroll through the Botanical Gardens, romp on the Zilker’s playscape or ride the Zilker Zepher kiddie train. The gorgeous nearby Umlauf Sculpture Garden is well worth a visit.

Walk north to affordable eateries on Barton Springs Road’s restaurant row or to Lady Bird Lake, where you can rent a kayak or canoe or circumnavigate the lake on Lady Bird’s hike and bike trails. At dusk, run, paddle or pedal under the Congress Ave. bridge, home to the nation’s largest urban bat colony. Just across the lake looms the downtown skyline and the Whole Foods’ mother store, where you can have your sweetie dipped in a vat of chocolate.
