Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Our 3BR/2BA luxury house is centrally located across from Zilker Park and just a short drive to the nightlife of downtown Austin, yet tucked away in the hills so you can enjoy your privacy with unbelievable views. Natural light spills through the many windows of the main floor living room, featuring vaulted ceilings, a large flat screen Smart TV, a wet bar, and a grand piano for the Beethoven of the bunch. The formal dining room is adjacent to the living room with seating for eight and access to a large gas grill on the outside deck. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen opens up into a charming breakfast nook surrounded by windows for 180 degree views of the Hill Country. On the first floor, you will find two bedrooms, each furnished with queen beds, a beautifully tiled full bath and an atrium. A large master suite takes up the entire second floor and comes complete with a queen bed, vaulted ceilings, and your own private, covered balcony. The lavish master bathroom has granite countertops, a roomy walk-in shower and a separate garden tub. At the rear of the house, you’ll find a sparkling swimming pool with a large wraparound deck and incredible views of the Barton Creek Green Belt.

Perhaps the best part about this house is its location across from Zilker Metropolitan Park, where - no matter the season - you are perfectly situated to enjoy all that Austin has to offer. Walk home from the Austin City Limits Music Festival, held annually in Zilker over two consecutive three-day weekends and boasting a lineup that includes famous artists of all genres, as well as budding musicians. Take a short stroll to the Botanical Gardens and get inspired by the beauty of nature, or cool off in the waters of Barton Springs, a spring-fed outdoor pool. If you are here to attend F1, consider visiting the heliport, located directly across the Barton Creek Green Belt from your rental, and enjoy an exclusive helicopter commute to and from the Circuit of Americas. Delight in a signature Chuychanga at Chuys, or visit Baby A’s for one of their famous purple margaritas, both only a short five minute drive from the house. Catch a play at ZACH Theatre near the shores of Lady Bird Lake or venture downtown to 6th Street, famous for its live music venues and annual festivals, like SXSW. There is always something entertaining to do in Austin!

The City of Austin limits occupancy to six unrelated adults.

Awesome House in Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

I loved the look of this house - great art, beautiful furniture and the location was so beautiful. The pool looks out onto a nature preserve - it was so relaxing. There's plenty of space and the furnishings were lovely and very unusual. There was this really funky metal chair that we all swore must be super uncomfortable - and after we tried it, we fought over it! Some of our favorite moments in Austin! We are cooking types, and it was nice to have plenty of cooking tools available. We had the kiddos with us, and it was a great place for them - plenty of space for kids and adults. I would definitely rebook for our next trip!

Reviewer Comments:

Great location, house is beautiful but needs serious maintenance work as well as keep the drawers free in order to have some room for own stuff. Kitchen needs to be really full equipped for those who like to cook their own seriously and not microwaved. Management were very kind and our stay was ok, but this property has much more potential in order to exced expectations.

This place was the perfect crash pad for a weekend of partying in Austin. From the quirky metal work furniture to the cool Dia de los Muertas display in the dinning room it was everything we could have hoped for.

Cool and Quirky!

  • 5 of 5

This house could not suit the whole "Keep Austin Weird" vibe any better. From the cool metal work pieces of furniture to the Dia de los Muertos cabinet of curiosities in the dining room. It's awesome! The pool is super warm thanks to facing the sun all morning, and it's just a great place to chill when you're not enjoying all of Austin has to offer.

Great house, but had some unnecessary management issues

  • 3 of 5

I'm only giving this house 3 stars because, upon check-in at 3:30pm (30 minutes later than the scheduled check-in time), the house appeared to be being lived in. The kitchen had bags with garbage in them, and the master bedroom bed was unmade with clothes thrown all over the room. We called TurnKey and, after a few back and forth calls, they informed us that the owner thought we were checking in a day later than we actually were. Why wouldn't TurnKey remind the owner that we were checking in? Seems like an easy way to manage this type of communication. After 3 hours (most spent on the phone with TurnKey), the owner came home to clean up her items and a cleaning service came to clean her room and kitchen. Had the owner and Turnkey communicated better, this could have been easily resolved BEFORE we arrived.

I will say, however, that TurnKey and the owner handled this situation very well and were pleasant to deal with in the process.

Aside from the headache at check-in, the house was great for our trip. The location of the home is beautiful, it's set on a quiet corner with spectacular views. The bedrooms, kitchen, and bathrooms were in good condition though not updated. If I could avoid unnecessary issues at check-in, I would stay here again and recommend this property to others.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the setting- the view couldn't have been better! This house has so much potential- it's a shame that it hasn't been maintained as well as it could be. In the real estate industry we would describe it as "tired". The pool is in poor condition and the filter hardly works, and it was not clean. We arrived to the umbrella in the pool and the umbrella stand broken. The kitchen cabinets and drawers were grimy- actually everything was just not clean. There was so much garbage from previous renters on the rocks below the pool that we climbed down and collected 2 bags of bottles and cups so we could enjoy the view better. The kitchen had all the required items but everything was old and very used- could use some upgrading On the upside, the 3 beds were delicious- nice sheets and plenty of clean soft towels. It was private- plenty of parking- great location with easy access to Barton Springs, downtown, and South Congress. I loved waking every morning to the bird calls. The garden has some gorgeous plantings and there is plenty of furniture by the pool to enjoy the space. I would not market this house to sleep more than 6 since the futon has a metal bar down the center which makes it impossible for an adult to use. It is a nice house over all but it looks nicer in the photos and certainly is not worth the $800/night we paid. I have checked below that I would not recommend this property as is, but with some maintenance, minor renovation and deep cleaning it could be a gem. The rental agency was able to get us an extended check out time and we did appreciate that.

Owner's Response: Hello Wendy, thank you for the review and the feedback, we do appreciate the comments. Due to the recent wind yes the umbrella had blown over. We will follow up to see why there was so much garbage left behind, we have a cleaning company come in after every stay and it seems like an area was missed. If there was a clean issue we would have been happy to have someone come back to the home and take care of these issues for you. We are happy you enjoyed your overall experience with us in Austin and the serene location. Thank you again for staying with us and for the comments, it does help us improve our overall experience. All the best ~ TurnKey VR
