About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

South Lamar and Zilker combined equal location. Enjoy this mid-century bungalow in the heart of Zilker and South Austin. Decorated with vintage auto posters and other fun stuff.

It’s five minutes by car or cab to downtown. Only a two minute walk to Maria’s Taco’s, Matt’s El Rancho, Mr. Naturral and Irie Bean Coffee Bar. You are also a short walk to Barton Springs and Lady Bird Lake. But really, if you are downtown bound, no car is needed at this address because it’s also just one block from the main Lamar bus line that goes straight to UT and Downtown, cruising past Alamo Draft House, Uchi, Olivia‘s, and Barton Springs on the way. Or, take a cab, it's only three miles to downtown.

The home is two bedroom, one bath with complete kitchen, and dining. Sleeps five with queen beds in each bedroom and a pull out single in the living room. The bathroom is located in a hallway between the bedrooms. Grab dinner from Mr. Natural or Artz, take it home and enjoy a glass of wine on your own patio.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We love to travel, and it's because of the convenience and fun we have had in staying in vacation rentals by owner that we decided to make the experience availabe for others in this home.

Why the Owner Chose Zilker, Austin, TX, USA:
This home is location friendly and South Austin proud. It's located in the wonderful Barton Hills/Zilker neighborhood which we also call home. We are long time Austinites, and still think the city is one of the best places in the world. Open, friendly, and healthy - great music and lots of good food and fun. As we've watched Austin evolve into an urban destination with an outdoor twist, we thought - why not offer this home as a location that has the best of the lake and the parks but also is in close proximity to downtown? So we did.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
This is a wonderful house for people with pets. It has a small side yard that is fenced, and lots of sidewalks leading to the informal dog park at Zilker Elementary and on to Zilker Park and LadyBird lake. The house is cozy and perfect for one or two couples.
