About the property

Entertainer's Dream! 4 bedroom 4 bath house steps to Everything- Sleeps 6-14

This spacious home has 4 bedrooms with a king bed in the master, 2 queen beds, twin over full bunk bed, 4 full baths, plus a new pull out sofa and a futon. It will comfortably accommodate 15 people. I have a couple air mattresses as well if needed.

Location, Location, Location!! This classic Austin bungalow has all the amenities and updates you want while still a short walk to Zilker Park, ACL, Ladybird/ Town Lake, Hike/Bike trails, restaurants, tennis courts, grocery, and more!

This spacious property has hardwood floors throughout and is ideal for entertaining large groups. It used to be a duplex. I remodeled it and opened it back up to be a single family house. The main house now has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with a huge open kitchen. The master bedroom is very roomy and has a king size bed with 1200 thread count sheets and large walk in closet. There is a 50 in. flat screen TV mounted on the wall. The bathroom has double vanities and a stand up shower with double shower heads. Water pressure is very strong. The secondary bedroom is also pretty large and has a ceiling fan and queen size bed. The bathroom has a tub with shower and black and white checkered tile. The third bedroom has a new twin over a full bunk bed plus a new queen size pull out sofa bed. It also has a newly remodeled bathroom. There is also a newly renovated garage apartment that has a queen size bed and futon. It has a 50 in. flat screen TV and full kitchen. In total there are 4 full bedrooms and 4 full baths so you have plenty of space for family and friends. I also have two queen size air mattresses if needed.

This property is ideal for ACL as it is a short walk to Zilker Park. There is a dedicated trail across the street that leads to Ladybird Lake where everybody goes jogging, walking, paddle boarding, and biking. Deep Eddy pool is also walking distance. It is a natural spring fed pool that is open year round. It is ideal for kids. Barton Springs is very close by as well. If downtown is more your speed, you are less than a 5 minute cab ride to all the hotspots in town. The airport is an easy 15 minute drive. The property is in downtown Austin so there will be some road noise from Mopac as well as a train that runs through the middle of downtown.

Guests have access to the full property. There is a large backyard with a wooden deck. You have downtown views from the back deck. There is plenty of parking as well. Cable/ internet and plenty of DVDs are available for your viewing pleasure.

I live near the property and am available via text/ cell. I'm happy to help with recommendations for things to do. I am here to help you enjoy your stay! Here is my guide of things to do nearby the house.

About Michael Said

I grew up in Dallas and moved to Austin in 1994 to attend the University of Texas. Immediately I fell in love with this amazing city. I couldn't get myself to leave. Once finished with college I obtained my real estate license and have been a real estate broker for 15 years now. I have two beautiful daughters and we love spending time on the lake and enjoying all that Austin has to offer!

Michael Said purchased this house in 2008

Why Michael Said chose Tarrytown

This awesome house is so close to everything! You are less than a mile to downtown, Zilker Park/ ACL, shopping, restaurants, swimming, and so much more.

What makes this house unique

You are able to see the downtown skyline while relaxing on the back deck of the house. Also, there is a walking/ biking trail right across the street with direct access to Ladybird Lake. If you love to be outside and close to downtown then this is the house for you. It is only a few blocks to the Lake. I have three bicycles that are available to use.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to Austin to visit some friends and family. The house was well decorated and looked exactly as it does in the pictures. The garage apartment has a cool Austin feel to it. There was plenty of room for all eight of us to spread out. We used the bikes that Michael provided to ride around Ladybird Lake. It was so beautiful! We would definitely stay here again. It is so close to everything! Thanks for everything Michael!

Lots of great spaces, with comfortable sleeping for all. The apartment garage is a nice add on too!!

  • 5 of 5

We had about 11 guys staying there and all slept comfortably. There were a lot of cool spaces to hang out, including the back porch and yard area and a big living room. Also went for a run with access to the town lake trail literally across the street!

Great & Spacious House for Bachelorette Party!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and spacious, and was perfect for hosting a group of 12 women! The location was private and quiet, and only a short Lyft away from downtown. Would highly recommend!

5 stars is not enough!

  • 5 of 5

Seriously, the greatest host and house I have ever experienced! 5 stars does not even cut it. We came for my bachelorette party. There was plenty of room, and the house was adorable as pictured. Michael was so accommodating and helpful throughout the trip. I can't say enough about this place! It made for the best weekend ever.

Great location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience staying here was great! Michael was a great host, arriving shortly after check in to see if we needed anything and to offer recommendations for what to do in Austin! The cab ride to downtown was only $11 for a 4 person vehicle, and $18 for 6 person van. We were able to cook a couple meals in the kitchen which had everything we needed from pots and pans to silverware and spatulas! I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you Michael!

Gorgeous, spacious home - perfect for an incredibly fun weekend in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property for my bachelorette weekend in Austin. With 15 girls, I was worried it would be tough to find a home that would accommodate all of us in a central location and on top of that be comfortable and clean! I and my girls were completely blown away by the beautiful property - we all slept comfortably for two nights and were within walking distance and a quick drive from everywhere we needed to be.

On top of all of this, Michael was such a kind host. The minute I confirmed my reservation he gave me a call and was ready to provide recommendations on things to do in Austin. On our last day, when we were worried about a huge thunderstorm headed our way, he checked in on how we were doing and kindly offered to let us hole up in the house until the weather subsided so that we weren't rolling our luggage around in the storm before our flights.

I am so grateful for the incredible weekend I had here, and highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a fun time. Thank you Michael for being such a great host and enabling a great send-off!
