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!
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!
