No smoking in the house or on the screened in patio! There is a nice area out front for sitting and hanging . NO PETS ALLOWED. I'm an animal lover, but want to keep it pet free for other guest that might have pet allergies. No more than 5 people please. And please be respectful of my property is all I ask. Thanks:-)
Renee made it very easy to check in and was very accommodating. The basket of organic fruit was a nice touch and great to have around for a healthy snack. The house is great and in an amazing neighborhood. So close to downtown and all the exciting things to do in Austin. Lots of restaurants and food trucks close by.
I would definitely stay again next time I am in Austin.
Renee is the best! Her place is beautiful, super cozy, and the neighborhood is a great area to stroll around. The home is very well thought out with a lot of nice details I appreciate (deep kitchen sink, dimmable recessed ceiling lighting, etc).
I was able to focus on some writing (it's located in a nice quiet neighborhood) and enjoy quick access to the city. The price was more than fair for the space and experience here.
Thanks again, Renee!
The previous weekend I had the pleasure of staying in Renee's beautiful house in Austin, Texas. It was clean, spacious, and had just the right amount of light. The house has everything you might need and is very comfortable as well. I recommend this house as highly as possible if you are looking for an attractive, uncluttered, and low-key place to stay while in the heart of Zilker Park. Our host, Renee, was very helpful and communicative. Recommended!
We loved our stay at Renee's place. Its just like the pictures! She had bread, eggs, and coffee available for us and the beds were really comfortable. Lyft and Uber drivers kept commenting on what a great neighborhood we were in. We walked to South Congress one day and down the street to Barton Springs and Shady Grove. We would absolutely stay here again!
Everything about the Zilker house was perfect. It was darling and comfortable, we had everything we needed to truly enjoy Austin. The neighborhood is very close to downtown, eclectic and cooly arty. Very Austin. Absolutely loved staying there.
