Zilker Zen House - Luxury 3/2 in Zilker Park
Additional Location Information
It's pretty hard to beat the location of The Zilker Zen - a VacationCake Luxury Property! It's located just about a couple blocks off of South Lamar Blvd, and within about 2 miles of downtown Austin, but more importantly just a few blocks from two of Austin's favorite hang outs: Maria's Taco Express and Matt's El Rancho Famous Mexican Food!
South Lamar is chalk full of great restaurants, music venues, and generally tons of fun stuff to do!
You're also within the confines of the Zilker Park neighborhood, which means you're within about a mile of Zilker Park: the great outdoor recreation area on the planet (according to local lore). Town Lake is also very near by as well.
Enjoy Austin living on your vacation to our town :)

What Past Guests Are Saying
More than we expected!
We couldn't ooh and ahh enough. The place was so cool and both young and old enjoyed every nook and cranny. We kept saying, "wow, this place is perfect." Thank you for the fine cotton sheets, the sparkling white towels, the sound system, the security, the party lights and oh, the coffee! We've already recommended it!
Best of both worlds: Tranquility and upscale amenities in the he
We couldn't have been happier with the choice of Zilker Zen House for our family gathering during our son's graduation weekend. From the moment we walked through the gate and into the spacious, artfully landscaped front yard, we knew we'd found a restful oasis in the city. The house is beautifully decorated and architecturally unique with every amenity our three-generation group could ask for--a lovely, fully equipped kitchen, at&T; U-Verse for the wall-mounted flat screen TV, an inviting tin-roof screened-in porch, and a deck and ping pong table for the 20-somethings. The location was perfect as well--close to both casual and upscale restaurants (try Olivia!) and great for city hikes to Zilker Park and Barton Springs or shopping on South Congress. Jay and Lauren were just a text or phone call away and answered my questions immediately. One thing to be aware of: The staircase to the master bedroom is quite steep and could be a bit challenging for seniors.
Gorgeous house, excellent location
We had a wonderful stay at the Zilker Zen House! The place was very clean and comfortable. The garden is pretty and the off-street parking was quite convenient. The finishes of the house are very modern and stylish. The location was prime, as we were able to walk down to the park within a few minutes. The only issue is that the train tracks are not too far away so light sleepers may hear the train whistle at night. The booking, check-in, and check-out were completely seamless.
We had a wonderful time at the Zilker Zen house - great beds, amazing space and a wonderful garden for the kids to run around in. Jay and Lauren were a pleasure to deal with.
