    About this property

    Cozy, River-front Cabin, Private, Romantic AND Parties OK!

    Romantic cabin in Del Valle
    AT JUST 2 MILES from Bergstrom airport and 6.2 miles FROM CIRCUIT OF THE AMERICAS, the Penny River cabin built in 2014 is located in the absolutely perfect location -- far enough fr town for total peace and quiet if you want it but a short hop, skip and a jump on a paved, country road to 2 main highways and 3 main arteries that feed directly into north, central or south Austin, respectively. It is gated for extra security and features a privacy fence all 3 sides (except for side with a view to the beautiful Colorado River). The ideal arrangement here is for up to 3 adults. This puts mom and dad in a master bedroom on a beautiful new Tuft N Needle King Size bed with their own private bathroom and one additional individual (up to and including an adult) in the guest/study on a Murphy single (also brand new Serta, very comfy!). As a bonus you'll also celebrate not having to purchase either Property Damage Insurance or Renters Insurance. It's paid FOR you, giving you an average $150 savings up front to spend on yourself. NOW KICK BACK in one of our 3 comfy chaise lounges on the back lawn overloooking the beautiful Colorado and take in the view. Moms, pops, kids, seniors, friends, all are welcome, even *Parties, but please advise us at the time of the booking of the number of anticipated guests you will invite and the expected duration of their stay and the duration of the party. A huge plus at Penny River is that your cabin is basically 100% private; that is, the owner lives on the property as well, but in a unit separate, in back, fenced. A reminder safety-wise is that the entire property is gated and fenced, adding a major degree of safety for you, your family, possesions and automobiles. The owner only accesses the cabin area driveway to get to his car but the cabin property is not accessed otherwise except at night, if you are away and have forgotten to turn on security lights for your return. In these instances, we peform a "house check," first knocking on your door twice and only then entering to turn on outside lights. It goes without saying that certain unpredictable emergencies might require us to come onto your area unannounced. Nights here are meanwhile almost magical. A huge 115' x 30' back yard opens to a huge night sky above the likes of which you probably haven't seen in years. Enjoy the full moon and a million stars overhead, BBQ on the patio and handle a full party of guests (up to 25 total, which includes yourselves) on the deck. A very cool sliding glass kitchen window allows through-food-service to the deck for convenient serving and clean up. A screened Garden Room with overhead hanging baskets and 2 cushy high chairs await you for morning coffee. A Bose radio too. We can't over-emphasize the 9 glorious miles Penny River is from downtown and the downtown noise, bustle and pollution, but if you must go into town you are mere blocks from 2 major highways to get you there using any 1 of the 3 major arteries into Austin from the east side. These connect to the north, central and south sides, accordingly (ask us). The lower section of the wine rack has lots of pamphlets on where to go, what to do and how to get there. Or maybe you're the quieter type that would prefer to stay close to the cabin and nature and just visit one of several beautiful hicking trails in the immediate area. You might just be needing a good rest, in which case fill your pipe with your favorite tobacco, your glass with your favorite wine and drift away in the quiet and peace of Penny River. Choose one of 3 available chaise lounges hanging on the fence near the palms and enjoy the occasional canoe, kyack or fishing party as they drift by on the beautiful Colorado.. INSIDE THE CABIN: There's a Mexican cantera patio just left of the deck and a loft barn garage just adjacent where we store party tents and extra tables and folding chairs if you're hosting a dinner or small party. Please, WE MUST HAVE A BODY COUNT and AUTOMOBILE COUNT IN ADVANCE of any planned parties. If you do decide to explore downtown Austin don't miss beautiful Zilker Park, which abuts an amazing botanical garden. There are hiking trails just everywhere. Ask locals what THEY like and don't be afraid to ask them what you'd like to explore. Austin is extremely friendly. Finally, Penny River is secured by a gated and locked entrance and further secured by a privacy fence on all sides except the River, of course. 2 cars can easily park inside the confines. Please remember to ask before arriving in more than 2 cars this as fire regulations require us to situate the cars in a certain way. We are subject to scheduled and sometimes unscheduled maintenance (lawn mowing, a plumbing problem, an electric failure resulting from a brownout or blackout) but we will always advise you with as much advanced notice of impending maintenance before coming into your general area, unless we can't reach you, in which case we may attend the need, unannounced. Unscheduled maintenance emergencies may not allow much advanced notice and possibly none. Thank you for understanding.

      A quiet place to rest after Austin City Limits

      This was my first time using vrbo and Jim definitely gave me a positive experience that’s going to make me want to use it again. This property slept all the amount of people we need in a comfortable manner and was far away enough away from Austin to not get city noise at night but close enough to drive into the city for ACL without any significant traffic. The patio area is beautiful and provided a great place to relax after a long day. Jim was courteous and gave us a tour of the property immediately when we got there and is super friendly I would definitely stay here again my next time in Austin.

      5/5 Excellent

        Great host

        Right on the river. Jim was one of the best hosts ever. We'll be back

        5/5 Excellent

          Great Weekend Getaway

          Jim was very helpful and kind, he had the home fully furnished and prepped for our arrival. He worked with our schedule and walked us through his rental home. The location of his home is perfect for the fisherman on your vacation, just across the Colorado River is a trail that leads to some good freshwater fishing holes. Overall a good experience, we had no issues and always felt welcomed.

          5/5 Excellent

            Jim was a great host

            We all felt so welcome staying in this cabin. Cabin was really close to the highway so it made it easier to get on the highway if we needed to get out. A lot of things were provided in the house for us to use. Jim was really responsive and communicative with us and so helpful. We enjoyed our stay at this place and would definitely stay there again if we go back to Austin and will recommend to others. I wish we could have stayed there longer.

            5/5 Excellent

              Quiet, peaceful cabin

              The property is exactly as pictured. A very inviting, friendly, helpful property owner will greet you and make sure you have everything you need, and the cabin has everything including new appliances and a washer and dryer. There is a gate that swings open with a garage door opener which keeps your car and belongings safe at the end of a cul de sac. We never heard any noises, we slept soundly, and were never disturbed by anybody or anything. Austin is full of highways and interchanges, and there is a little "turnaround" before getting to the small residential area where the property is, but that is pretty typical of what you will find in Austin with all the growth and road construction. It takes almost 30 min. to get to downtown Austin from here. The deck and view of the river is what sets this cabin apart from everything else.
