This is really one of the coolest places in Austin. You will love the feel of Zilker Park Place . The photos just don't do it justice. This is a very large two story townhome that is part of a very quiet fourplex in a very quiet neighborhood. It has 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath,sleeps 5 adults (one king bed, one pull-out couch with memory foam and the chaise lounge). For the location, which is two blocks from Barton Springs Pool, and per sq. ft. the price is one of the best bargains around. If you are a cook, you will love this fully stocked kitchen. It has all the amenities anyone could possibly need for a day's stay or for a months.
Zilker Park Place is close to everything that is happening in Austin. Full of color and original art (photos taken on our travels and art by the resident artist next door), it is a happy place with great energy. The bedroom has a King size bed with the with the most comfortable mattress I have ever laid on. The couch in the living room is a Queen sleeper with memory foam. The down stairs bathroom comes with 'Pretty Boy' the tetra fish and his aquarium which happens to be part the toilet tank. The kitchen is set up for all your cooking needs including an espresso machine. It is close to SoCo and less than a $10 cab ride to downtown. It is located about a block from the the bus and is easy walking distance to restaurant row on Barton Springs Rd. The hiking trail around Lady Bird Lake is approx. a mile away. Enjoy Zilker, Barton Springs, or the Greenbelt. It's hard to get a cooler place with a better location. (WiFi/digital cable/sports pack).
This is not a party house. You would have neighbors who expect to have peace and quiet surround them. Please be considerate.

Lois was an awesome host! She replied very promptly to our questions and she was friendly and welcoming! The house is decorated in the Austin, creative style. King bed was very comfortable. Fridge was stocked with: butter, jelly, balsamic vinegar, hot sauce, etc. Coffee/filters, tea, sugar, creamer and cocoa were provided and kitchen had all of the cooking/utensil necessities. The best part in staying there was the convenient access to Barton Springs, Zilker, Greenbelt, and numerous hiking/biking trails. It is a 5 min. walk to the pool and some trails. You can also walk to numerous eateries, food trucks and bike rentals on Barton Springs Rd. Neighborhood was very quiet and we always had a restful sleep! Thanks Lois for the comfortable "home away from home"!
Since I had never been to Austin before, I was not sure of a good location for our stay. This turned out to be perfect! Lois's place is a couple of blocks from miles of green belt trail. The back entrance to Barton Springs pool is just off this trail and a walk north brings you to kayak rentals, great food trucks and restaurants. Uber rides took us any distances we wanted to go when our feet wore out. It was inexpensive and efficient
The home is very comfortable and had everything we needed. The fun furniture and artwork AND the fish tank in the toilet tank were charming.
Lois called shortly after we arrived and met up with us the next day to make sure all was well. She offered any advice we might have needed on getting around or places to go.
I recommend this rental.
I rented this place out for my folks who came and stayed for 2 weeks during the fall season and they were over the moon with everything here. Lois has everything ready and is the perfect host. The place is very Austin and is close to good restaurants and town. I highly recommend this place and next time any of my friends/family come to Austin i will be recommending they stay here.
Lois's place is simply amazing. Great decorations, very, very comfortable, extremely clean and tidy. Well equiped kitchen and they even have a barbecue grill. I highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Austin. Lois was a perfect host, making sure we had everything we needed. If you ever stay there, don't forget to feed the fish.
Had a wonderful time staying at Lois' place. Was exactly as advertised and a lovely place. Took all of 90 seconds to walk to the park and no more than 7-10 minutes to downtown. Highly recommended.
This town home was exactly as described when
booking. A very pleasant experience with excellent
amentities and a great location.
Beautiful apartment and so close to Zilker / Barton Springs. I went running on the trails every day. The 2-block proximity to nature and the lake really made this work trip feel almost like vacation. Also, the grill on the patio works just great! Thank you Lois!
