Wonderful Light Private and Sunny Zilker Cottage Perfectly for a Couple
Price: $79/night 2 guests 1 bedroom 1 bed 1 bathroom
Translate this description into Spanish
Tucked behind our house in the Zilker neighborhood in South Austin, this sunny one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage accommodates one or two people perfectly. We’ve got two great bikes you’re welcome to borrow any time. Austin license: 2013 OL 122394.
The space gets wonderful light from its many windows. Stare out into the big trees by day and at night lay in bed and watch the moon go by.
The bed is a queen with great sheets and pillows. We also just finished a complete renovation of the bathroom and shower to add a 40-gallon tank for plenty of hot water.
We’re just up the hill from Zilker Park (home of Barton Springs, Austin City Limits, and the beautiful Greenbelt).
Just three blocks east is the heart of South Lamar with tremendous restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and breakfast tacos – not to mention Austin’s best snow-cones and the city’s one and only honky-tonk dance hall. (See a current list below.)
One note …
We’ve gone to the trouble of being fully licensed as a short-term rental with the city of Austin (License: OL (phone number hidden)) (Looks like AirBnB is suppressing the number because it thinks it’s a phone number If you are a city official, please contact me if you want to verify the license number.) Having a license means you will not be in danger of having your stay canceled or interrupted because of a citation. But it also means we have to pay to hefty 15% tax to the city and state. We’re keeping the rental rate for the cottage low, but do not know that it includes that tax, which other property owners may be choosing not to pay.
Also note that I will only accept reservations now from Airbnb members with at least two positive reviews / references. Thanks
Happy to answer any other questions you might have.
Q & A:
“Is there a TV?”
“Do you charge for use of the bikes?”
No, you’re welcome to borrow them. Just be sure to borrow the locks as well and lock them up securely and legally.
“How far is it from Austin City Limits?”
According to (website hidden) Maps, we’re 1.7 miles from Zilker Park. An easy walk down the hill or you can borrow the two bikes.
“Does it have a kitchen?”
It has a microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker, plates, and silverware but no oven / stove.
“Could we have a third person?”
There’s a camping cot if you absolutely need to accommodate a third person, but it’s really set up for 2 people.

Attention to the guests
I’m always available if you need me and I’m happy to offer advice about what to see and do in Austin, but I usually assume you want your privacy.
Just to be extra clear: There’s no breakfast included. I try to stock the little kitchen area with free coffee and tea.
