About the Property
Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)
You can rent the studio to sleep a total of 2, or you can combine it with one or both of the other units in the house to sleep a total of 4 or 6. Too see the other units, please type their listing numbers in the VRBO search bar: 450977 ('Treetop Suite') and 442385 ('Urban Hideaway').
All 3 units have clean, crisp linens, quality furnishings, and original art. Our WiFi connection is good, and the patios are a great place to enjoy the quiet of an established Austin neighborhood only five minutes from downtown and the SoCo district, and walking distance of the South Lamar (“SoLa”) district.
We offer bikes for you to explore the many things to do within walking or biking distance from the house. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, check out the greenbelt along Barton Creek or Barton Springs Pool--each about a mile away. If you are looking for great food, you are just around the corner from the iconic Matt's El Rancho and the fabulous 'Restaurant Row' on Barton Springs Road. Walk to the ACL music festival or enjoy live outdoor summer theater at Zilker Park. Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Zilker Botanical Garden are beautiful places to explore and picnic. At the end of the day, dance to live country music at the locally-famous hole in the wall--the Broken Spoke. Or check out the HighBall retro bowling alley/karaoke bar and neighboring Alamo Drafthouse Cinema--uniquely Austin experiences.
If you want to venture outside the neighborhood, we're also close to the University of Texas and the Highland Lakes just west of town. We are happy to recommend things to do and places to see.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: We are a husband and wife team that loves old houses. We were each renovating our own 1940's era home when we met. Since then, we've acquired two additional homes and had four children. We love spending time with both--keeping the houses in great shape for years to come and keeping the kids busy and fed! One of us is a native Austinite and the other has been here since 1995, so feel free to ask us anything you want to know about Austin, and we will try our best to help.
Why the Owner Chose Zilker, Austin, TX, USA:
Location and character. Close to downtown, yet nestled in a quiet, established neighborhood with mature trees and great opportunities to explore nature. A unique structure--beautiful natural stone and concrete block construction originally built as a carriage house but easily converted to unique rental apartments
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Original, natural building materials give the house character and soul. Clean and manicured outdoor areas extend the enjoyable space of the apartments. Clean and crisp linens and furnishings make for a relaxing and enjoyable retreat.
