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.

                                                      Beautiful home in a great location!

                                                      Lisa L.

                                                      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!

                                                      Great property!

                                                      Paula H.

                                                      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.

                                                      Carol M.-

                                                      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

                                                      Madison R.

                                                      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.


                                                      Erin M.

                                                      My family and I had a wonderful time during our visit to Austin. Dana's home is beautiful, comfortable, and incredibly convenient for all we needed to do (and it's in one of my favorite areas of the city!). I would highly recommend this listing. Thank you for your hospitality!

                                                      Highly Recommend - Beautiful Home in a great neighborhood

                                                      Blake H.

                                                      Our group of 10 had a great time here. The house is very nice and we really appreciated all of the little things - the welcome note in the fridge, extra bedding and clean towels. In addition, the location could not be better. Very close to the water and a short cab ride away from all ATX hot spots. We endorse this property 100%. Thank you for your hospitality!


                                                      Tarrytown, Austin, TX, USA

                                                      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.
