Enchanting Zilker Cottage in Downtown Austin

Located in: Austin
Attention: During SXSW there is increased rates and a minimum stay of 3 nights. For all other times, there is a minimum stay of 2 nights.

You will never forget your stay in this luxuriously appointed, utterly charming 'jewel box' of a house in the Zilker Park neighborhood. The beauty of our Bungalow is exceeded only by its perfect location.
This is an original 1940's Zilker Cottage in the very BEST location within 1/2 mile from DOWNTOWN AUSTIN with a cozy bedroom, bathroom, living room, dining room, huge kitchen, and vine covered front porch. Street parking is available (for free) in front of the house. You can look forward to staying so close to downtown but in a safe, upscale, and cool Zilker residence. Best of both worlds.
The Zilker Cottage is located in front of my residence and is completely private and all yours to enjoy! I live on the property, as well, and have a side gated entrance and driveway (my separate, private residence is not pictured). I may or may not get to meet my guests in person. I am, however, very close by and available via email and can always be reached should any questions come up during your stay :) The following are some details about your Zilker Cottage:

Enjoy this private bedroom with it's original hard wood floors and gorgeous antique door knobs, flat screen TV including cable, WiFi internet, Sealy Posturepedic Sotherby PLUSH queen sized mattress, fluffy topper, GOOSE down comforter with 100% cotton duvet cover, Egyptian cotton linens, Egyptian cotton pillow cases, and sturdy/elegant Eddie Bauer bed frame. The room is very small measuring 12 x 12 with the majority of space taken by the huge bed for sleeping comfort. Closet includes wind-up alarm clock, ironing board, iron, plenty of room to hang clothes, many shelves for storing belongings, and two huge maps of Austin. The bathroom has hard wood floors, a full bathtub/shower (if you're a ceiling), hand soap, lotion, shower gel, Yardley soap, shower cap, and comfy all cotton towels also provided. The sink and tub are both original to the house (cast iron) and restored. I did, however, replace the white surround tile around the bathtub...I couldn't salvage the old tile :( All bathroom appliances (faucets, toilet, etc) are new, as well.

The kitchen is gorgeous with an antique chandelier, gas stove, microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee maker, ceramic teapot, kettle, blender, pots/pans, FILTERED water system, and tons of dishes in the event you would like to cook and dine in.

Living room:
I have a beautiful saddle leather sofa, huge coffee table, with lots of Austin and Texas themed books and magazines on hand to read, as well.

Dining room:
There's a fantastic mango wood dining room table (bar height) which comfortably sits four is also a great place to get comfortable with lap tops, read newspaper, etc. as there is plenty of table space. It's also ideal for a great meal with friends and family!

This house is in Zilker, a residential neighborhood in south-downtown Austin that adjoins Zilker Park, 351 acres on the Colorado River. Within the park is Barton Springs, a large, naturally fed swimming pool. The nearest commercial corridor, South Lamar Boulevard, is one block away, and has many restaurants, coffee shops, and music venues. About a mile away, there’s South Congress Avenue, a strip lined with restaurants, bars, vintage shops and stores like Allens Boots, which carries over 4,000 pairs of cowboy boots, along with hats and pearl-button shirts.

If you book a stay here (I can't emphasize this enough) please consider walking/running/biking this area as it offers incredible homes to admire, the famous Hike and Bike Trail on Town Lake, Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, Umlauf Sculpture Gardens, Botanical Gardens, restaurants galore (including the famous 'Uchi' sushi restaurant 1 block down the street), Alamo Drafthouse, etc, etc, etc. This is a very safe, cool, and historical area of town and I encourage you to take advantage of this location.

PARKING: There is a private driveway that I use for my personal car only but we have unlimited street parking right in front of the house for your convenience.

TRANSPORTATION: There is also public transportation with the nearest bus stop less than a block away on Lamar Boulevard/Treadwell Avenue in Austin, Texas 78704. The bus can take you to 6th Street (downtown), the Warehouse district (downtown), the 22 acres of the Texas Capitol (downtown), the University of Texas campus; or the Austin Convention Center to name a few destinations. Cab fare is about $5 to downtown - it's only 1/4 mile away. There's always Uber and car2go, as well.
