What makes this apartment unique

We are centrally located in a quiet neighborhood with huge beautiful trees lining the streets, a quick walk to Lake Austin, on a biking trail that leads to Zilker Park, across from a beautiful municipal golf course, and only a few miles (5-10 minutes depending on traffic) from UT, downtown, and Zilker Park. Our neighborhood is an oasis with easy and fast access to the exciting offerings of Austin!

Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

Very nice back house apartment in a lovely neighborhood. Great proximity to UT campus and downtown Austin. Check in and out was a breeze and owners were quick to respond to reservation request and provided perfect directions to the apartment and tons of ideas for enjoying Austin.

Another Great Tarrytown Stay

Another great stay at the Tarrytown apartment, our go to residence for Austin visits. So convenient for us (enjoyed coffee at Mozart's with my parents ☕️☀️) & Stephanie was, as always, a great hostess .We'll be back soon!

A beautiful property in gorgeous Tarrytown!

  • 5 of 5

Tony and Stephanie, and their kids were a great host to my stay! They made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed for SXSW 2016. I absolutely love this neighborhood because of its peace and serenity. If you're a runner and outdoor enthusiast, this place is for you! Lake Austin, and Lady Bird Lake running trails provided great daily exercise and a relief from the business of SXSW. I also recommend running along Scenic drive to catch a view of the gorgeous homes along the river and feel the Texas breeze blowing as you brisk along. Mozart's on the river is a quick walk away and a great place to have your morning coffee, breakfast tacos, and catch-up on work. Getting to downtown Austin and South Congress is very easy with Uber, or you can simply walk to Exposition and catch the local Austin bus. I would definitely stay with Tony and Stephanie again!

Great stay in the West Austin apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the apartment many times and love the accommodations and its convenience to Town Lake and UT.

The owners are very accommodating and responsive.

Walking distance to Mozart's and Hula Hut and a quick drive to Rudy's BBQ just over the Low Water Bridge in Westlake Hills.
