The two bedroom/one bathroom “Kaleido House” is the largest unit in the Zilker Vacations family. It features by far the most original art and colorful decor to go along with the spacious wood beamed vaulted ceilings.
The Kaleido House is located just two blocks from Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool, and 2 miles to downtown. There is easy walking access to many of Austin’s famous restaurants as well as the outdoor paradise that is Zilker Park. Take a dip in the 68 degree waters of Barton Springs after enjoying a hike through the Barton Creek Greenbelt or a stroll around Lady Bird Lake. After a day outdoors, you’re only a short walk back!
If you’re still a bit chilled from the refreshing waters of Barton Springs, fill up the 200 gallon tub and take a relaxing soak (please note jets are non-operational). The tub also features shower heads on both sides, so you and your partner can enjoy a shower together without anyone hogging all the hot water.
When you’re not in the tub...the vaulted beamed knotty pine wood ceilings make the over 1000 square feet seem even bigger. The kitchen is fully equipped to handle cooking big meals, and the Whole Foods world headquarters is approx 2 miles away. Several convenience stores are even closer.
There is a king bed in the master bedroom and two XL twins in the second bedroom, which can be made up as a king upon request. There is a queen-sized pull out sofa bed in the living room as well. This property can comfortably sleep 6 adults.
Other amenities include: fresh coffee (organic local Ruta Maya) and tea fixings, washer/dryer and detergent, bath and beach towels, and a Britta water filter on the faucet.

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.
