AVAILABLE SXSW - 2nd WEEKEND
Zilker House is a charming 1930’s cottage which has been completely restored. The house has a large claw foot soaking tub, open layout and vintage modern furnishings. Within easy walking distance of a dozen restaurants and a short bike ride from Barton Springs, South Congress, Zilker Park, Downtown and Lady Bird Lake the house is very well situated for all Austin has to offer. We are five blocks from a great playscape if you are traveling with kids. There is one off street parking spot available, and lots of street parking nearby. We also offer a pair of cruiser bikes for guests to explore the neighborhood.
With two bedrooms the house fits 4 people comfortably. One bedroom has a queen sized bed and the other bedroom has a full sized bed. An inflatable full bed available upon request and the sofa is very cozy. Each bed has high thread count linens and ample pillows. We also have a roll away crib, high chair, changing pad and lots of toys if you are traveling with little ones.
The kitchen is a chefs dream with a dual fuel stove, full sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave, warming drawer, coffee maker, and a tea kettle. Lots of dishes, glasses, pots and pans are also available. For your convenience we provide complimentary coffee and tea.
Unwind in the glorious vintage 6 foot clawfoot tub with optional shower surround. The hot water is on demand so feel free to luxuriate before wrapping up in one of our fluffy towels. We have a full sized washer and dryer in the house in case you need to do some laundry.
The living room is equipped (email hidden) (we have HBO), wifi, and lots of magazines in case you need something to read.
The owner and property manager lives in a house at the rear of the property, but they have a separate entrance and yard. Close by if you need something, but far enough away to give you as much privacy as you want.

Couldn't have asked for better accommodations or location. We were in Austin for SXSW and it was a nice reprieve to have a homestead away from the party scene. House is adorable and furnished smartly with vintage mid-century pieces. Kitchen and bathroom are updated with top-of-the-line finishes. Mary couldn't have been a better host, communicating quickly and making sure our needs were met (leaving bikes for our use was a great touch). Only suggestion would be to provide more lamps for ambient lighting. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
An amazing house, even more lovely in person. Great location, beautiful details. We would love to stay there again.
Great place. Spacious. Modern. Well equipped. Excellent and responsive host. Provides good local info for your stay - like menus of restaurants. Good location. Loved our stay here!
Beautifully renovated house in a beautiful South Austin neighborhood, very convenient to South Congress, Zilker Park, downtown, and other locations. We look forward to returning.
We loved our stay here. The house was beautiful and spotless. The location was wonderful and Mary was available for anything we needed. Highly recommend.
My husband and I had a wonderful weekend getaway at the Zilker House in Austin! We needed to book a space last minute and Mary was extremely accommodating and welcoming. The house was nicely renovated, clean and decorated beautifully. Close to S Congress and other great locations! Mary was very kind and made her self available to us; great host! We will definitely come and stay again!!!
Mary's place is a real gem in one of the best parts of Austin. The house is recently renovated and in impeccable shape. We were in walking distance of several great bars and restaurants, and really close to Zilker Park and Barton Springs.
Mary is really nice and was always available and responsive - she lives a house over, so she's around if something comes up. We would definitely stay here our next Austin visit!
Spotless house. Tastefully renovated with high-end finishes and fixtures. All done right, to standards for living in, not simply renting out. Centrally located to all. Overall, a pleasant and effortless experience. If looking to rent from a host who cares, this is the place for you.
Everything about the Zilker House and Mary was perfect. The house is in a fantastic location, close to downtown, SoCo and right in SoLa; it's easy to get everywhere from there. The house itself is so well done, beautiful kitchen and bathroom, plenty of space in the bedrooms and a roomy living and dining. Mary is a total sweetheart and super accessible. If we ever needed a thing she was right there and made sure we were completely taken care of. She has equipped the house with everything you need to know about the area and Austin in general. She has done this Airbnb thing right. I highly recommend her and the Zilker House!
I cannot say enough good things about my stay here. Mary is an amazing host - gracious, thoughtful and accommodating. She made sure we felt right at home. Her attention to detail made for a comfortable and relaxed stay - from the many toys, books and crib waiting for my 10 month old to the fully stocked kitchen and bathroom to the carefully curated selection of magazines. She even dropped off some olive oil and spices - just in case. Honestly, I would live here if I could! Bright and modern and, above all, CLEAN. It was tastefully decorated and spacious.
Great location. Walking distance to some awesome eats (Barley Swine, Lick Ice Cream) and a short drive to a dozen more restaurants and food trailers. Loved being so close to Zilker Park.
Really made for an excellent stay in Austin!
