Wonderfully comfy, cozy, charming, and clean "cabin" in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, parents, and I visited Austin over Christmas so we could spend some time with our daughter who moved here earlier this year. This wasn't our first VRBO / Home Away rental, but it was by far the best. In previous rentals, we had to run to the store immediately for things like toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, salt & pepper, plastic wrap, trash bags, dish soap, hand soap, matches, etc. This house was was not only completely stocked with essential items, but also had many extra thoughtful items such as shampoo and conditioner, lotion, wine, soda, snacks, fruit, firewood, candles, Keurig pods, and more. In addition to consumables, the house had attractive decor, comfortable furniture, quality towels and bedding, and useful items such as robes, umbrellas, and shopping bags. And the house was CLEAN, which we really appreciated, having stayed in some less-than-clean rentals in the past. Also, the location is fantastic! It's in an adorable neighborhood, yet feels completely private and peaceful with its bamboo forest and trickling fountain. We visited nearby Zilker Park nearly every day, where there is hiking and even a natural spring-fed pool that is 72 degrees all year round. My husband loved swimming there, even when the air temperature was in the 30's. In addition to outdoor activities, the house is conveniently located to Austin's many restaurants, attractions, and shopping areas. Finally, Stephanie was very attentive, friendly, organized, and professional. She even called in advance to see if we wanted Christmas decorations. We did and they were lovely! We truly enjoyed our stay and would happily stay here again on future visits to Austin.

Cozy Cabin, Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in the Zilker cabin over the Thanksgiving holiday. We enjoyed its central location. It is close to Zilker Park, Barton Springs, SoCo and the downtown. The home was very comfortable and the landscaping provided privacy. Stephanie thought of everything. She provided all the amenities you could want. Just bring some clothes and your toothbrush! When a small issues came up Stephanie was very responsive. Much appreciated! I would definitely stay there again!

Cozy and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our first trip to Austin. Our son had recently relocated there, and the Zilker cabin is only one mile away from his apartment. The cabin is also very close to other places of interest to us, downtown, the walking and biking paths along the river, and many good restaurants.

Stephanie was very accommodating, and very accessible. The cabin was well stocked with supplies, and Stephanie thoughtfully also provided some snacks and drinks. Stephanie quickly addressed an issue we were having with the TV.

If our son stays where he is, we will definitely come back to the Zilker cabin.

It's great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here and felt so welcome. Fresh flowers and a bottle of wine in the fridge were only two of the thoughtful touches. Everything was beautifully done and I especially loved the old fashioned cooker. So wonderfully American! Thanks Avalon.
