Greetings! One of our recent guests told us our home reminded her of "an open air Costa Rican experience." Thank you for taking time to look at our property. If you are not familiar with Austin, this property and location requires a HUGE FUN introductionâ€¦ ðŸ˜Š in a second youâ€™ll see why. We have shown up in your search results if you entered â€œprivate poolâ€ in the filter. While we do not have a private pool or a beach. We do have something so UNUSUAL, spectacular and special we hope you will forgive us for jumping into your pool search results for the opportunity for us to introduce you to BARTON SPRINGS Pool and its potential for you. (VRBO should have a filter check box for â€œOH my gosh you just gotta check out this UNBELIEVABLE locationâ€ -so truly spectacular experiences wouldn't be missed.)
