Accommodation Description

· Kid-friendly · Barbecue

This glamping accommodation can sleep four to six guests, and the daily rate allows for up to six. For an additional fee per person per night, however, more than six guests are permitted to stay at this luxury villa.

There are two master bedrooms, each with king-size beds. Extra king-size mattresses can be brought in for when there are more than four guests. There are also two bathrooms, with a jetted tub and an open shower tiled with actual stones. Never fear for lack of toiletries and comforts while staying in this glamping villa—the owners have thought of everything and then some.

The fully equipped kitchen features a refrigerator and freezer, an oven and a stove, a microwave, a blender, an ice maker, a coffeemaker, a dishwasher, a toaster, and the unit’s washer and dryer. There is also a dining area with seating for five. For guests who prefer to have their meals cooked for them while on vacation, both catering and a private chef are options that can be arranged by the hosts for an additional charge.

As if lacking in activities to do and places to see while in Austin, this villa also comes with the necessary entertainment systems and technology to allow guests to have movie nights in and so much more. In the living room is where glampers will find a television with cable/satellite TV, a DVD player, a stereo system with a CD player, games, a radio, and a video game console and its respective games. Enjoy Wi-Fi throughout the entire villa, too.

Meanwhile, outside, there are three balcony decks with patio furniture and a gas/electric barbecue for cooking and dining al fresco. Other amenities included in this accommodation are central air conditioning, ceiling fans, filtered water, linens and towels, off-street parking, and a wood-burning fireplace. Read More

Accommodation Features

  • King-size bed
  • Shared Barbecue

The facilities of this glamping villa are quite unique; it’s not every day glampers get to arrive at their accommodation by a personal tramcar. According to the owners, this glamping rental is the only residence east of the Rocky Mountains that requires a tram to access it. The 1.5 minute tram ride will take glampers up 210 feet at a 55 degree angle to reach the villa.

Other extras at this accommodation include three balcony decks with breathtaking views of Lake Travis, Mansfield Dam, and Hudson Bend, as well as a gas/electric barbecue, cable/satellite TV, and Wi-Fi. There are many unincluded additions that guests may ask for, too, including a masseuse, a chef, an aesthetician, concierge services, and more; requests simply must be made in advance to the hosts.

Location + Surroundings

  • Museums

Austin is located in central Texas in Texas Hill Country and is the capital city of this southern state. With a vibrant arts and culture scene and a modern attitude, this Texan city is a hotspot for Americans from all across the U.S., many of whom end up moving here to take part in its affinity for live music, culinary adventures, and forward thinking. The popular SXSW festival is held annually in March here, highlighting the newest and the best in three different categories—Music, Film, and Interactive—and it’s worth planning a trip to go glamping around this major event. Other main attractions in Austin include the Texas State Capitol building, Lake Austin, the Barton Springs Pool, the Zilker Botanical Garden, McKinney Falls State Park, The Contemporary Austin, and The Paramount Theater, to name but a few.

  • Boating/Sailing

Aside from exploring all the history and culture that Austin has to offer has a major city, glampers will also find themselves with many options for staying outdoors and discovering the natural landscape of Texas Hill Country. Guests can go boating, jet skiing, fishing, sailing, parasailing, snorkeling, diving, swimming, water skiing, and windsurfing on the lake, for those who have a passion for on-water activities. If glampers would rather stick to land, there is plenty of biking, golfing, hiking, and tennis playing to be done in the area, too.
