Located in Tarrytown, Via Libre is perfect for out-of-towners curious to explore Austin, music aficionados looking for a convenient base for ACL, travelers with business at the Texas Capitol, Longhorn football fans, and visiting families.
We are close to UT and downtown with easy access to MoPac. A short walk or bike ride takes you to the Johnson Creek Hike and Bike Trail, which leads to Ladybird Lake, Auditorium Shores, and Zilker Park (home of Barton Springs and the ACL Music Festival). A mile away, you'll find Deep Eddy Pool (spring fed and open year round), Lion's Municipal Golf Course (18 holes in the heart of Austin), and Lake Austin's waterfront dining. There is access to public transportation (bus) within walking distance (less than a mile). The walk is doable but not incredibly pedestrian friendly.
Please note that Via Libre is an upstairs apartment without elevator access.
Via Libre requires a 2 night minimum on weekends.
We are happy to work with you to accommodate special requests. We can arrange to have your kitchen stocked in advance, prepare your room with flowers and wine, coordinate dry-cleaning, or help you develop an itinerary for your stay. Please inquire about pricing based on your specific needs.
The 15% hotel tax is included in our rates.
No smoking inside, please!
Awesome place that is super close to downtown. Would be a great spot for fun but I was actually in town for business and it worked out great! Will be back!
We had a wonderful weekend in Cynthia's apartment. The place looks even better than in the pictures. It's close to downtown. Cynthia and Bobby were very welcoming and flexible on arrival and departure times. Definitely a great place to stay.
This was my second time staying at Via Libre and I enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The great location, cold beer waiting in the frig, wonderfully decorated rooms, and adorable outdoor patio make me think of this as my "home away from home" when visiting Austin. Cynthia and Bobby are the ultimate hosts!
Absolutely LOVED this cozy, warm, and welcoming space in a perfect Central Austin location! The impeccable decorating with even the smallest little touches throughout the apartment make you feel right at home, and Cindy and Bobby could not have been sweeter or more hospitable! I will definitely be back!
Cynthia and Bobby are consummate hosts, from their perfectly amended & cozy Austin abode, to the equally welcoming landscaped grounds. And then there was also the Shiner beer waiting for us in the fridge. We felt like personal friends of theirs. What a treat. We'll be back for sure.
P.S. Some day in the future, I'd LOVE to hire Cynthia to decorate our home and their firm to design the landscaping for our yard! :)
there's no where like Via Libre! We did a one day turnaround to attend an event in Austin. I arrived back home feeling as rested as if I'd had a week off.Location can't be beat, it's every bit as striking as pictured, and Cindy and Bobby are the greatest.
We felt right at home from the moment we walked in the door. Everything was exactly the way it was said it would be. The home is clean, private and has amazing flare. Bobby and Cynthia have an incredible place and I will choose to stay here again. I, along with my friends enjoyed talking to Bobby throughout our stay.
About the Host, Cynthia & Bobby
We are a fun-loving couple with adult kids (and young grandchildren) in the Austin area. Before we moved here, we created and ran two guest houses in west Texas, The Refuge at Wit's End and The Blue Willow at Erinshire. Hosting has been a passion and a joy for over 20 years. We're happy to do whatever we can to make your stay enjoyable!
