You'll have so much fun exploring this house, outdoor living spaces and beautiful shaded lakeside neighborhood, that you'll forget the other reasons you came to Austin! You'll be reminded when you take a short 2-3 minute ride to downtown Austin and Zilker Park. An amazing kitchen and comfy, roomy bedrooms will bring you back. I'm happy to go through a manual procedure to postpone the payment of your security deposit until the day you check in. If the security deposit is not needed, it is refunded to your credit card 7 days after you check out. This should eliminate it being on your credit card for too long. We have four beds for 8 people; let me know if I can accommodate couch/blow-up mattress for up to an additional 4 people. The upstairs master bedroom has a king bed, jacuzzi tub/double headed shower, midcentury seating area and outdoor deck looking over the treehouse and lush backyard. The second and third bedrooms have full beds, and share a bright shower/bathtub bathroom. These bedrooms are on the street level with the kitchen with concrete countertops; dining room that seats 10; main living room; deck with gas bbq pit and dining table the seats 6; and treehouse that seats 4-6. The fourth bedroom downstairs has a full bed and a large living area off the backyard porch, with comfy outdoor sitting area, ceiling fan and garden water feature. There is a private outdoor shower in the backyard, as well. There are Sonos speakers to connect with throughout the house and outdoors, and four tv's in the living areas, master bedroom and kitchen. Digital keypad door entries eliminate the need for you to keep up with a key. I'm happy to go through a manual procedure to postpone the payment of your security deposit until the day you check in. If the security deposit is not needed, it is refunded to your credit card 7 days after you check out. This should eliminate it being on your credit card for too long. Boat rides in Lake Austin at $100 per hour; I would pick you up at the ramp down the street. Enjoy!

About Dana Wills
We are rooted in Austin though many friends and family. We love our community and home so much that we want to share it with you as we travel and move through life.
Dana Wills purchased this House in 1996
Why Dana Wills chose Tarrytown
We walked by and were awed by this house for years. When it came on the market, we snapped it up for its proximity to the lake and restaurants, then transformed it into an eclectic home with a getaway feeling. The short bike ride to UT football games or Zilker Park for ACL isn't the only reason everyone loves visiting us here!
What makes this House unique
When we created the outdoor living spaces, the experience of this treehouse-like home came together. Whether enjoying coffee in the treehouse in the morning, showering under the big oaks, relaxing on the back patio soothed by its unique lighting and garden water feature, or cooking out on the deck and playing guitar, the outdoor spaces make this house special.

Eclectic fully stocked home, exactly as described online!
I've traveled and used many VRBO properties, and often times the description and pictures online don't give an accurate depiction of what to expect. This property (and property owner) not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. Situated just a few blocks from Lake Austin and minutes from downtown and the MOPAC for easy travel to other cool Austin hot-spots, the "tree-house property" as my girls and I called it, had everything we needed for a relaxing long weekend. The home has many interesting features, and the owner is clearly a world traveler who wants to offer all of the comforts of home to her guests. Complete with stocked coffee and tea bar, shampoo & bath soaps, the property owner strove to make sure every need was met, including asking us what kind of cream we liked for our coffee so she could have it stocked for us!
The backyard is a lovely garden area with nice water feature,very relaxing for morning quiet time or an evening glass of wine. The tree-house sitting area was so fun to play cards, games, people watch or even get some work done on my computer. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this property to anyone wanting a quiet place to hang while enjoying all Austin has to offer.
PS this house is NOT a place for children or parties/party-ers! If you are looking for a kid friendly home, or a home you can throw a party this is not the place, keep searching!
The property was perfect for a group. Tons of space, great location and very comfortable
The House was clean and charming. The owner was more than accommodating and incredibly friendly through the process. Location was great, house had a perfect layout for a group. We loved it.
Beautiful home in a great location!
We were in Austin for a wedding and were able to feel right at home in this house. Dana was very kind and responsive. The house has everything you would need, and is within walking distance to great restaurants on the water. The outdoor space was wonderful for relaxing with family and friends!
There were 9 girls that slept in this house for a weekend and had a GREAT time. Everyone was comfortable and the house is laid out in a way that makes it really conducive to a lot of hangout time. The beds were very comfy and Dana is SUPER accommodating. I 1000% recommend you stay here if you are considering Austin. Great location- close to everything we wanted to do in a quaint neighborhood.
My only recommendation is that you dont touch the A/C unit too much. It works VERY well so can get a bit cold in the house. No complaints! Thanks Dana.
Comfy home in a great neighborhood.
We spent a month in this home and enjoyed every minute. We found everything we needed for cooking and living. The home is beautifully decorated and super comfy. It's a great neighborhood, close to everything, yet quite. Lots of people walking around. I would recommend this home to others. Thanks Dana for a great month.
Pretty and Safe location
Pros- Loved the location and the house. Owner was laid back and took care of laundry. Allowed us to check-in early & provided a really cool coffee and tea bar. Loved the privacy of the house and great to sit on the porch in the mornings. Loved that within walking distance to Abels and Hula Hut.
Cons- There wasn't any room for me to put anything in the freezer and not much space available in the refrigerator. A lot of knick-knacks on all surfaces so no space to put my things. No closet to hang clothes in master. Also, there was a horrible smell the first day we arrived and not sure what it was. It only subsided when we turned the air conditioning way down. Also, the owners car was in the lot upon arrival & needed all the parking we could get.
This property is in a great location in Austin's best neighborhood. It is a block to a Lake Austin boat ramp and another block to popular lakeside restaurants and coffee shop. The Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail is 2 miles away, with it's non-motorized boat, SUP and bike rentals, and 10 miles of downtown lakeside trails that serve as a social hub for runners, walkers and cyclists---and Stevie Ray Vaughan's memorial! Zilker Park, famed downtown Austin, the Texas State Capitol and the University of Texas are all 3 miles away.
