1 Bedroom Flat in the Heart of the Zilker Area
Our 1-bedroom flat is located on the ground level of a stone triplex built in the 1940s. It has been completely renovated to expose interior brick walls and stained concrete floors, and enjoys its own private patio set up for outdoor dining.
You can rent the Flat 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. To see the other units, please enter their listing numbers in the VRBO search bar: 450977 (1 bedroom unit) and 423250 (studio).
All 3 units have clean, crisp linens, quality furnishings and original art. Our WiFi connection is good and there are lots of things to do close at hand, nestled in the quiet of an established Austin neighborhood.
We have bikes for your use wherever you may venture. We are 5 minutes from Downtown and the SoCo district, just south of the river that runs through town. We are walking distance from Zilker Park, home to the famous natural pool known as Barton Springs, and also home to the ACL Festival, outdoor summer theater, and the annual Kite Festival. Walk to Lady Bird Lake, where you can paddle board, canoe, or jog the trails. We are in the midst of excellent eateries and unique Austin entertainment like the Broken Spoke, the Highball retro bowling alley, and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, in an area known as the South Lamar (“SOLA”) district.
If you want to venture outside the neighborhood, we are 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.

About Ann Giles
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.
Ann Giles purchased this House in 1998
Why Ann Giles chose Zilker
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
What makes this House unique
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.

Very convenient location and nice VRBO
The owner was excellent to deal with. This is GREAT Austin neighborhood - so close to down by and very close to Zilker Park, Barton Springs, many, many restaurants. We often got take out from Wheatsville Coop one mile down on Lamar and brought that back and ate at the house. House has basics covered. Nice patio to sit on if weather is good. It is the first floor unit and there is a unit above. We did hear them - but it wasn't loud - but if you are very light sleeper you should be aware. Neighborhood is lovely quiet neighborhood. Enjoyed evening strolls enjoying all them many different types of houses in neighborhood.
Very charming and comfortable. Great location, near everything.
Couldn’t have asked for anything more. Very comfortable, including bed!
Exactly what we were looking for
Cute and convenient!
Ann has been so great to work with: polite and professional. The property fits two perfectly for both short overnights or a longer getaway. We will be renting this property again in the future! .
Wonderful hideaway :)
This truly is an urban hideaway and in a great location. It's spacious, extremely quiet, warm and very inviting. I will definitely stay at this property in the future. Thank you for the warm welcome and the beautiful accommodations. If I could give it 6 stars, I would.
Amazing cozy space and close to downtown!
Very clean and comfortable. The owners thought of everything and it was so convenient to Barton Springs pool, downtown, and all the great eats on Lamar. We will be back again!
We are only 5 minutes from downtown, yet nestled in the quiet of an established Austin neighborhood. We have bikes to explore all there is to see and do within just minutes of the house, including the Barton Creek greenbelt, Zilker Park (home to Barton Springs pool and various festivals and outdoor theater), excellent restaurants and shops, and local night spots like the Broken Spoke and the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. In fact there is so much to see and do in our area that we have published a neighborhood guide for our guests.
