Large, bright, private, comfortable 2 bedroom, 2 bath duplex with plenty of parking, in convenient location. Pets accepted with prior approval and fee.
This bright and airy space sleeps 6 to 8 guests depending on who shares a bed. It has been inspected and is licensed by City of Austin. Also check my other listing of the Cottage near SOCO, and comments from prior guests. Located on the North Side of Ben White Blvd., you are not far from SXSW venues. Fire up the grill and hang with your friends and your (pre-approved) dog on the spacious deck in the enclosed back yard. Play darts, horseshoes or dominoes. Enjoy sitting around the fire pit. Snuggle into one of 4 regular beds (1 queen and 2 full-size, and a twin). Additional sleeping accommodations are provided with double sleeper sofa and roll-a-way. Enjoy bright and airy beamed cathedral ceilings, walk in closet, and 2 full baths, complete kitchen, and laundry room inside apartment. Treehouse has basic cable, internet, and Blue Ray for your Netflix account.
If you are driving from the Airport, it is a straight shot West on Hwy 71 (Ben White Blvd.) You will be almost equal distance between Austin's 2 main North and South routes (IH 35 and MoPac). Ten minutes or less to the Convention Center, and closer than that to Zilker Park, Auditorium Shores, and SOCO (South Congress with its cute shops, great eateries, and interesting foot traffic.) The popular Rainey Street club area is just across the Congress Street Bridge. Go North on South Lamar for a seemingly endless stretch of shops, cafes and bars. You will want to go to Maria's Taco Express Sunday morning for a rousing gospel music breakfast. Two-step with strangers at the Broken Spoke, and experience old South Austin at the Horseshoe Lounge. Duck into the nearby ice cream shop called "Lick" for a double scoop of Beet (yes, I said Beet) and maybe salted caramel, or grapefruit/cilantro homemade ice cream. Check out the Central Market Center just across Ben White/71, where you can get groceries, have a great lunch, catch a movie, and buy duds and gear at Whole Earth Provisions, or Cavender's Western Wear--you know you want some boots. Longing for decent Tex-Mex, try Casa Maria on South First Street.
You can expect to find plenty of towels, shower jell, TP, hair dryer, clothes iron and laundry detergent. There is a good stash of coffee, tea, cream and sugar, and condiments. Bus stops are a short 3 or 4 blocks away.
Gather wood for the fire pit by strolling down the magical path through the light and lovely woods next door. You may encounter children cutting through on their way home from school, and maybe a raccoon or two.
Check in and departure times can be flexible--just ask. When checking for availability, please enter your dates on my calendar and it will confirm that your days can be booked or are no longer available. Feel free to contact me with any unanswered questions. Will consider 2 nights only if there are fewer than 6 people in the party--please ask.
Daily price includes 17% hotel taxes, which are paid by me. Cleaning fee is for deep cleaning the day of check out. Will consider booking for just 2 nights for small groups. Please ask.
Fenced back yard, front deck in trees, full kitchen, iron, hair dryer, laundry room, Central Market shopping center, easy access to anywhere in Austin, Gold's Gym nearby, SOCO area, privacy, plenty of parking space.
There is a door code that I will give you so that your arrival can be flexible. You will probably not see me unless you need something--then I am only 15 minutes away.

We went to my sons wedding at Mercury Hall on March 1st. The Treehouse was the perfect place to stay as the venue was close by and we were able to take the neighbor roads to get there! We had a BBQ with a few family and friends and the back deck area was perfect! Also took the back roads to Maria's Taco's which was a great place to eat!! I would highly recommend this place for your stay in Austin!
I've stayed in Another one of Kaye's places and she was a great host then and now. The treehouse is lacking nothing. It's private and quiet with all the comforts of home. We would definitely stay here again. It's in a great location about 10 minutes driving to anything we wanted to do. Thanks again Kaye!
The treehouse was a cosy retreat with a wonderful living room that is conducive to hanging out. The beds were all comfortable and the kitchen had ample equipment for us to cook meals in. It was a great place to stay in Austin if you want to get away from the core just a little bit.
Kaye's place was perfect for our group! Plenty of sleeping space, and a great location only minutes away from SoCo- thanks for making our weekend a great one!
My family stayed at the Treehouse and were perfectly comfortable. Four beds meant we had plenty of sleeping options and 2 baths meant no one was waiting for others. Kitchen, laundry and living area made it a home away from home for the week. Its a fantastic south Austin location and Kaye was more than accomodating of our staggered arrival schedule.
Our family stayed at the Treehouse and it accommodated all 5 of us (needing 4 separate beds) plus a dog with no trouble! You could have even used the pull out couch and the cot to accommodate more. The house had everything you'd need - linens and a stocked kitchen. A very nice place to stay with lots of natural light. Also, dealing with Kaye was a pleasure; thanks, Kaye!
We rented the treehouse for my family that flew in from Canada for our wedding in Austin! We chose the treehouse because of its close proximity to Mercury Hall (our wedding venue). The treehouse was clean and very spacious and all my family members were able to sleep very comfortably in this space. Kaye was extremely accommodating and very sweet. She made sure my family had extra towels and linens, etc. She was easily available via phone and/or e-mail for any questions and was always very quick to respond :). My sister in particular loved the treehouse design and kept on commenting on how she wished she could live there! A great space for my family... thanks so much!!
I wasn't able to make the trip due to illness in the family but Kaye was very understanding and still let the rest of our party come. They said that the house was very nice and that Kaye was gracious and accommodating when they had to extend their stay due to bad weather. I will probably rent this place next time I head to Austin if I can and would recommend to friends/family.
EXCELLENT PLACE!! Super clean and comfortable! Beautiful surroundings. Kaye was an amazing host, this property has everything you need to have a great vacation, the best location to enjoy Austin's down town, F1 race and shopping malls. I definitely recommend it!!
Excellent place_very comfortable, clean, lots of light and quiet. Kaye was very helpful and accomodating. Only drawback- need car to go practically anywhere as it is a bit distant from most places you want to visit.
