About Naomi Bourgeois
I have been living in Austin since 2000 and absolutely love this city! This house is actually my mom's but she travels a lot so I'm helping her rent it while she is gone. Feel free to ask me for suggestions on bars, restaurants, and things to do. I want to make sure that everyone who comes here leaves loving this city as much as I do.
Naomi Bourgeois purchased this Townhouse in 2013
Why Naomi Bourgeois chose Zilker
My mom bought this house as her retirement place. She bought it because she can walk to the hike and bike trail on Lady Bird Lake directly from her house. She loves doing that everyday. There are also the Barton Springs Pool and Deep Eddie's pool walking distance, which have spring water (no chlorine!) and are super refreshing during the summers.
Minimum age of primary renter:25

Wonderful home, comfortable and clean. Would definitely stay again.
Nice little place very close to Barton Springs road and Zilker Park. It comfortably slept 6 people. It has a very large dining table. The house was exactly as described. It is about 1/2 a mile from Zilker Park with a sidewalk the entire way. The house sits at the top of a fairly steep hill, but it’s not a problem to navigate if in decent shape. I highly recommend this place if looking to explore the Barton Springs/zilker park area
Beautiful spacious townhome that is in a great, quiet location. Short rides to Congress st and downtown. Naomi was very responsive and made sure our needs were met. I’d highly recommend this townhome if you’re coming to Austin.
Very comfortable and in a great location
I stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday with my husband, two kids, and my mother-in-law. It was very comfortable for the 5 of us. Just a short walk down the hill gets you to the park. We had no issues with the temperature control like a previous renter and due to cold temps at night and warm temperatures during the day we had to switch from heat to A/C several times and the unit worked just fine. The beds were very comfortable. It was lovely to walk into Christmas decorations as well! It was a great location to have easy access to downtown Austin, as well as all that South Austin offers. I would definitely stay here again.
Loved the house!
The house was great for our group of six. Beds were very comfortable, everything was very clean and we had everything we needed. The furnishings were very eclectic and interesting and we loved hanging out in the screen porch. Thank you for sharing your house with us!
Not comfortable or worth the price
Ok location from distance, but keep in mind it is UP HILL the entire way back from Zilker. Not a huge issue if you're in shape though.
House was nice enough from the looks. 3 comfortable beds upstairs with 2 baths. Nice patio out back with seating. Neat little entryway out front. Covered parking for two normal size cars.
Why the low rating? We showed up for our stay (Friday) and walked in to the house the morning of our stay at 80F. We dropped the luggage off and dropped the ac a bit to cool if for out return after being in the heat all day. On our return the ac had not done anything and the house was still 80F. None of our group slept well as the house would not cool off.
We contacted the owner first thing the next morning. While we were out for the day someone came by to look and we were told it was fixed.
On our return (Saturday night) - the house was still 80 and the ac was not working. We again sleep bad. Opening the windows for a breeze helped but that backfired by the partying neighbors at 3am.
We again notified the owner Sunday morning and left for breakfast. We were gone maybe 55 minutes and were told someone stopped by while we were out. The ac was frozen per that visit. We left it off but noticed that water was now leaking from the downstairs bathroom exhaust fan (directly below ac) leaving that bathroom unusable. We were told it would be fixed that day within a few hours.
We left for the day and returned that night to the ac working.
So 2/3 of our trip was without ac. We promptly notified owner of issues. No refund or reimbursement as "we can't beat the location, convenience of parking and below market value lease."
I cannot recommend a place at this premium price that doesn't have ac. I would not have considered it as an option if I had known. We were required to pay for 'damage' insurance and then seem to be on the hook to cover the ac visit cost as they had to pay a premium to have someone come out on a Sunday.
I would advise somewhere else. If it goes write you may enjoy, but f something breaks it becomes your problem to work around. We've stayed towards town at just a bit further for 2/3 the price. The walk is longer but not as bad from the up hill side. Better pricing and more restaurants to have the option to walk to. We will head that way next time in town.
This unit is located in the heart of Austin, walking distance from Zilker Park and Lady Bird Lake, Barton Springs Pool, Austin Botanical Garden, Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum, and local restaurants and bars.
There is a bike lane right in front of the house. You won't ever need to use your car as you would find everything really close to the place. By bike you can get to WholeFoods market, Zach Scott Theater, the Long Center of Performing Arts, local day spas, and all of downtown restaurants and bars.
You will love this property! Amazing 3 bedroom 2.5 baths.
