About the property

Parkside, Park VIEW Adventure RECREATION...Costa Rica vibe 7 beds Loft style

Unsurpassed location. Breathtaking Penthouse atmosphere with panoramic views of Zilker Park. Enjoy being so close to downtown AND have so much outdoor recreation…Barton Springs Pool /Park and the River are as good as in your front yard. PLEASE INQUIRE FOR SXSW RATES (March 8-20)...AS THESE ARE NOT REFLECTED. All RATES are based on a per person basis. Please be sure to enter correct number of guests for an accurate quote and invoice.. There are two incredible levels to this property. On the upper level, the first thing you will see as you walk into the space is 3 sets of french doors opening off the main living space to a huge wrap around deck with views of the park. An enormous picture window enhances your experience of our beautiful Park in the open concept floor plan. The back entrance to Barton Springs Pool is literally just 379 steps away. You can see it from the balcony. We have IMMEDIATE ACCESS to Lady Bird Lake and the 10 miles of hike and bike trail surrounding the lake. This is Austin’s social hub for hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding. You are walking distance to so many of Austin's finest iconic restaurants, bars and Alamo Drafthouse theater. This property captures the true essence of the park by bringing the outdoors into your living space. In the morning or evening, with the 3 French doors open, the breeze is spectacular. The property offers a tranquil rooftop setting embodied by all natural materials including; cedar ceilings, wood and limestone counters, stone flooring and a solid 4’ granite kitchen sink. 2nd living room upstairs is luxurious and peaceful with a 70" TV if a game or movie is in order. It doubles as a bunk room for large parties. 2 full Bathrooms boast pristine white stucco with sparkling Quartz rock flooring.

4 bedrooms upper level:




4th bunk room/flex space (queen rope bed and 2 XL twins make up a lounge seating area perfect for entertaining and watching TV on the 70” tv or can be used solely as a bunk sleeping area)

Now that was just the upper level…there is so much more!

This complete lower level of this property offers you inspired design focused on the style and relaxed appeal of Austin, with flavors of a cottage in the French countryside. Breezy sun drenched flex space opens up to the main living area with a sliding wall and 6' corrugated swinging door creating a huge entertainment social space. The vibe is "oversized loft" "and a part of the park" with stone flooring and wood ceilings. Crystal chandeliers fill the dining area and lounge spaces with sparkling light. Enjoy cooking in a fully stocked stone and wood kitchen with a gorgeous marble farmers sink and custom gourmet prep island. The living/dining area is complete with 2 sets of French doors and 6 additional over-sized windows. Features include: An expansive deck off the living room, 2 impeccable stone and stucco full bathrooms with surround rainfall shower. Off the master a large fenced yard allows for any accompanying pet to roam freely.



2nd- full, plus 2 xl twin bunk beds

3rd -Another flex space. 2 XL twins make up a sofa in a sun drenched breezy lounge that opens up completely with a sliding wall and 6' corrugated metal swinging door. Or then the door and wall provide a completely private sleeping space.

Again, we are 10 minutes WALKING distance to so many of Austin’s finest dining experiences: Barton Springs restaurant row, pubs, bars, food trailer park and night clubs. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is just up the hill and Umlauff sculpture garden is half a block away.. It is a spectacular property in an unsurpassed location.


Youtube has a great video to show you what all the hub bub is about across the street...... enter "Barton Springs Pool" and the Day Tripper video shows you the real deal. :) (this site doesn't allow posts directly to the link-sorry) .

Perfect location to relax in luxury in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home! From its convenient location to its chic decorations to the plush bath towels, I cannot wait to head back to Austin so I can stay here again. Lisa was a dream to work with and incredibly responsive and accommodating to all our requests. Definitely choose this home if you want to enjoy your stay in Austin to the fullest!

Stay at this house!

  • 5 of 5

This home was very welcoming with plenty of amenities, plenty of private spaces, and a very convenient location.

Not only is it across from Barton Springs and many walking/running paths, it's also a quick walk to a number of food trucks and eateries, and only a quick uber drive to the downtown and other areas nearby.

There were plenty of dishes and amenities available, and ample common space for spending time with those who were also staying in the house.

And Lisa, the host, was exceedingly easy to communicate with and answer any questions. We had no issues with the house, but if we had, I know she would have addressed them immediately.

If I visit Austin again I will do so hoping this house is available. I strongly recommend you book it for your stay!

Beautiful home, the perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

This rental could not have been more perfect for our group! The house was exactly as pictured, beautiful, comfortable and clean. The sleeping arrangements were perfect and with comfortable beds, it was also great to have the four bathrooms and double kitchen space with the upstairs and downstairs spaces! There was plenty of common space for gathering and the kitchen had everything you would need for cooking. In addition to the great house, the deck was a really relaxing and spacious place to spend time together. Commute to the airport and downtown was super quick and the house was in walking distance to some great outdoor restaurants/ bars and the park. You really can't go wrong with this rental! And Lisa was so wonderful to work with! Thank you for a wonderful trip!

Beautiful + Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely AMAZING time in this house -- it could not have been more perfect! We had a whole weekend of activities planned but really just wanted to hang out in the house. The decks were huge and overlooked the park + the kitchen and living rooms were so cozy and perfect for a big group!

Lisa's house had everything that we ever could have needed, especially for cooking. We cooked several meals, so we were delighted that she had so many casserole dishes, big bowls, etc. She also made sure to leave out plenty of stemmed wine glasses, which we had asked if she had available. It was such a nice touch!

The house was incredibly clean and we all loved the decor. The location was central, yet quiet. Lisa herself was an absolute joy to communicate with -- she always responded quickly and warmly (and we had a LOT of questions). As a fellow VRBO host, I am pretty darn picky -- Lisa and her house exceeded all of our expectations. We can't wait to come back to Austin and stay here again!

Great location and perfect for a big group

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 16 stayed very comfortably at this location and loved the set-up. Half were in the downstairs area and the other half upstairs. However, there was more than enough room to congregate and hang out as a collective group in either setting. The location is very close to the action downtown, but also very walkable to parks nearby. Uber drivers found the location with ease. We would recommend this location to any big group looking to enjoy the great city of Austin. Lisa, thank you very much!
