The Heart House is a lovely one bedroom condo just a few blocks from Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, & Lady Bird Lake! With a new king bed and floor to ceiling windows in the bedroom, it's a romantic treat for any couple.
There's a queen sleeper sofa in the living room, WiFi/cable TV, reserved parking, free laundry on site. This property is pet friendly, but we do charge a $50 pet fee ($100 for 28+ day stays). If you choose to instant book, we will send an additional request.

The space
The fun loving Heart House will certainly make you smile! You will sleep soundly in the king pillow-top mattress and enjoy the 3rd story view from the floor to ceiling windows in the bedroom. The living room features a vaulted ceiling with clerestory windows which provide wonderful natural lighting. The balcony is always a popular hangout spot for your morning coffee, dinner, or a late night cocktail. The Heart House has a fully furnished kitchen to cook in if you so choose. The entry is only 8 steps up from the parking spot right in front of this 6 unit building built into a hill in Barton Hills. Have fun finding the hearts in all the art on the walls! We are licensed with the City of Austin.

Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park: We are located approx. two blocks from the single best swimming pool in the universe, Barton Springs. Located in the heart of Zilker Park, use our beach towels and enjoy the spring fed, chlorine-free 68 degree waters of this over 1/8 mile long watering hole. Also enjoy the hike and bike trail, boating on the river, frisbee golf, the Nature Center, the Botanical Gardens, the playground and the train for the kids or a picnic on the great lawn. Zilker Park is Austin's crown jewel, and certainly one of the most fantastic outdoor recreational areas on the planet!

Downtown Austin!: The legendary 6th Street is where you can find great live music every night of the week in dozens of bars. Don't bother driving down there, parking is a problem and it's only a $8 cab fare. Also, don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, South 1st Street, 2nd Street, 4th Street and then West 6th Street!

Alamo Drafthouse and The Highball: See a movie while eating dinner or just having a drink at Austin's favorite theater, the Alamo Drafthouse, or enjoy dinner, drinks, live music, dancing or karaoke at The Highball, both just over a mile from this condo.

Guest access
You renting the whole property - this is not a shared unit. You also have reserved parking right in front of the 8 steps up to the door.

Other things to note
PET FEE: Please note that if you plan on bringing a pet we do charge a $50 pet fee ($100 for 28+ day stays). If you choose to instant book, we will add the fee as an additional request or you can pay directly.

There's wifi and cable included. All of our properties are fully stocked with linens, towels, basic kitchen items (spices, oil, etc), Britta Filter and organic coffee beans, grinder, filters and drip coffee maker. Anything left there is for your use. Ask for beach mats, noodles and/or camp chairs to use. We also have baby equipment upon request.

Covid Update:  We have enhanced cleaning practices in effect, contactless check-in with keyless deadbolt and 24 hours unavailable between guests.  Many public places, such as Barton Springs Pool, may be closed currently, and many restaurants are operating at reduced capacity, so make reservations or call ahead. Additionally, cleaning fees have been raised to $85/$150 to help mitigate extra time our housekeeping staff is spending to disinfect all surfaces between guests.

During SXSW, there is no weekly discount.

We are a family that manages 8 properties under the business name, ZilkerVacations. My husband's nickname is Peach and our son is Jay. All of our properties are within two block of Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool and all sorts of other fun stuff! We have lived in the Zilker area for more than 35 years, raised Jay and his sister there, and have a residential real estate company called Kaleido Properties in the neighborhood. Peach is an amateur photographer and continues his love of color and kaleidoscopes (used to be a kaleidoscope maker for 15 years) with his Kaleidoscope calendar, published each year. Jay and Peach are big golfers and also glad to offer suggestions. We all love being outdoors, whether walking, biking, swimming or golfing. Jay likes to do yoga and can recommend studios. Peach and Cynthia volunteer with Keep Austin Fed, rescuing food that would end up in the trash and getting it to people who can use it. Jay is on the board of the Austin Bat Cave, a non-profit that teaches underprivileged kids creative writing. We are also founding members of the Austin Rental Alliance and have worked with the City of Austin on short term rental regulations and continue to advocate for all hosts to collect taxes and register with the city. We are happy to help other people enjoy our neighborhood. We will leave you alone or can be available to answer questions about anything. We enjoy meeting our guests but don't always get the chance.
