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.
No smoking inside, please!
Bobby and Cindy were happy to see us and spent time conversing and giving us directions around town. Listing accuracy was superb, pictures showed reality. Neighborhood serene even though adjacent to major thoroughfare, convenient to downtown and shopping. The rooms were immaculate, inviting, and very comfortable.
Everything from booking, communicating and staying at Bobby at Cynthia's was professional, friendly and of high airbnb standard.
The photos do not disappoint. In fact, I found the apartment and garden more charming than I expected. The apartment is extremely clean and includes lots of amenities to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. I would recommend this apartment to any friends and family and look forward to coming back next time we are in Austin.
Thanks for having us!!
We had a wonderful time at Via Libre! It was the perfect place for us to unwind after a full day of sightseeing! Cynthia and Bobby thought of everything and were very hospitable! Great location too! We will stay here again upon our return to Austin! FANTASTIC place!
I call it the tree top as it's above the main house and Cynthia is clearly an artist! If I could pick this place up and move it to where I live I would! It was perfect decor, so clean and tidy and Cynthia was so welcoming and accommodating when we needed to store our cases after check out.
Would definite recommend and stay again when in Austin!
It took us all of three minutes to realize how lucky we were to have booked Via Libre with Cynthia and Bobby. We had everything we needed and lots more. The place is inviting, comfortable, beautiful and Cynthia and Bobby couldn't have been nicer.
Take care y'all!
We had an incredible stay here and highly recommend this property. Cynthia and Bobby went above and beyond the call of duty to provide everything we needed and more. The apartment is very clean and accommodated the 4 of us well. The inside and outside space has a Austin chic vibe about it and is very comfortable. We loved it! Besides that, the hosts made us feel like family and went out of their way to make our stay one we will long and fondly remember. It was everything we were looking for and more.
Our stay was amazing. Through many plan changes, cyntgi was more than helpful adjusting to our schedule. The place was everything and more we could have wished for. We will definitely return. Thanks!
