About this listing
Stay in the Texas Hill Country in a quiet and serene gated estate set on five acres located directly on Barton Creek. Drive to downtown Austin in just 15 minutes, walk across the street to the Barton Creek Resort, Spa, and Country Club to enjoy dining, golf, tennis, and swimming, or lounge in the sun by the pool at home in complete and total privacy.
Enjoy hiking and exploring on the property, complete with stairs and trails heading down to the creek waterfront. Soak up the summer heat by the infinity edge pool and hot tub, or enjoy some outdoor activities on the sport court or at the country club.
The entire home is equipped with a state-of-the-art audio and video system with speakers throughout the interior and exterior. The system is complete with a Blu-Ray changer that houses 500 movies on demand, Apple TV, DirecTV, Netflix, and Airplay, which allows you to stream the music from your iPhone to the home audio system.
All of the controls for the home can be manipulated from iPads, which are provided with your rental. The lights, audio, video, pool controls, alarm system, security cameras, and thermostats can all be adjusted with the touch of your finger.
The massive master suite is located on the ground floor. Relax on the Chesterfield sofa and watch television on a large flat screen that is mounted on the wall. Lay on a Kluft mattress under an impressive chandelier. Soak in the oversized garden tub, dress in a large walk-in closet, and enjoy a private outdoor patio that is perfect for morning coffee while watching the birds and squirrels play in the yard. Occasionally, the deer pass through as well.
A complete list of house rules will be provided upon request or at the time of booking.
About the Host, Ryan
I have been in Austin since 1994. As much as I love the city, I also enjoy traveling and photographing vacation destinations and tourist attractions around the world. As a registered travel agent, I am able to work while I enjoy tours and activities in places like London, Paris, Rome, New York, San Francisco, and Hawaii, to name a few.
I have always wanted to own/operate a hotel. That has been a passion of mine since I was a child. For that reason, I enjoy having guests staying in my rental properties, and I want to provide so much more than just a place to stay. My goal is to create a memorable experience for my guests. I want my guests to know that not only does Austin deliver a good time, but that this home away from home is waiting for you. With my connections in the travel industry, and tenure in the city, I strive to provide a level of service you will not find with other rental managers.
Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like. I enjoy talking about Austin and the property, so I welcome you to communicate with me. I am here to help, and your good time is my priority.
