SoCo condo description

Howdy Y'all!

Welcome to the Sweet Little Suite!

This place is adorable and artsy, clean as can be, and full of good vibes! I've fixed it up with every detail I can think of, and I'm always open to suggestions! Best of all, it's in an AMAZING downtown waterfront location.

You'll be looking at the skyline reflecting off the water and thinking, 'Daaaaaaang, she wasn't kidding: this is an amazing downtown waterfront location!'

You'll be walking to SoCo in 10 shady minutes and saying, 'Daaaaaang, that was a nice walk.'

Then you'll be eating Homeslice pizza and saying, 'Daaaaaang. That's some good pizza right there.'

Check out the photos and see what you think. If you have any questions, just send me an email.

Thank you!
Emily

                          The condo is in downtown Austin but feels like a woodsy private retreat. The location couldn't be better. It is smack-dab in the middle of the city, between SoCo and 6th Street -- Austin's two most popular bar and restaurant districts. It is on Lady Bird Lake, on the hike and bike trail, and within walking distance to several parks, the capitol building, convention center, art museums, SXSW festival, ACL festival, Barton Springs pool, mini golf, and many bars and restaurants. The university is about 20 blocks away.

                          Something you don't want to miss: in just ten minutes, you can walk to see the famous 1.5 million bats that fly from beneath the Congress Avenue Bridge every evening at sunset! Amazing!
