Welcome and thank you for considering our property! Please note: this home is available for certain special events (ACL, F-1, SxSW) and holidays only. Please check availabilty calendar and "rate details" for information.

Hills Haven is a beautiful and unique property located on a greenbelt just behind Barton Springs and close to downtown Austin. Whether you're coming to experience the "Third Coast's" world-class music and art scene, participate in Austin's abundant outdoor activities, or simply explore the great restaurants, shopping, and funky vibe that make Austin a top-rated travel destination and place to live, Hills Haven is your perfectly-Austin "home away from home." Hills Haven is within easy walking distance of some of Austin's best attractions: Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park (site of the Austin City Limits Music Festival and the Trail of Lights), the Long Performing Arts and Palmer Event Centers, the hike-and-bike trail and Lady Bird/Town Lake, Restaurant Row, and Austin's newest shopping district, SoLa (South Lamar). You're also just minutes by car, bike, bus, or cab from the center of downtown and the 6th Street, Warehouse (4th Street) and 2nd Street entertainment districts, the Texas State Capitol, and the University of Texas.

Easy access to all Austin offers and comfortable privacy - the best of both worlds.

We look forward to your visit!

Fantastic location, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Eric’s home is a very comfortable, well laid out, and exactly “as advertised”. Great communication throughout our rental made us feel welcomed and looked after. Loved the screened porch, and quiet back yard area - very peaceful.

Thank you!

Charming, comfortable, convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at this home and would recommend to others. We loved the charming, cozy details in decor and breathtaking beauty from the comfy screened porch. The kitchen was impressively well equipped and so organized. The accommodations were perfect for our group with nice linens, comfortable beds and ample towels.

The location was amazing and made it easy for us to get around Austin. Our hosts gave helpful information and restaurant recommendations for our stay.

Everything about our rental and instructions prior to and during our stay were well communicated.

The house was really nice and in a great location. It was a 15 minute walk to ACL. The owner was very nice as well. Would stay here again!

Beautiful Haven

  • 5 of 5

Your home is beautiful- perfect for our family holidays! We loved all the art work, the "international flair", and the funky touches. We made most dinners in your well-equipped kitchen and enjoyed them surrounded by the beautifully- lit trees through the wonderful dining room windows. Though it was cooler and we didn't get outside to relax behind the house, we loved the perfectly-tuned wind chimes! We were close enough to walk down to Zilker Park, and close to the great restaurants in SoCo. Great location.Working with Eric was great as well!

This was a great place for the SXSW event. Extremely clean and well kept. And not too far away from downtown, about a brisk walk away. We'd definitely like to stay again.

Thanks -
