Barton Hills condo description

City of Austin License #2014 007838. The Studio, our most affordable efficiency condo, is decorated with posters and photos of Austin musicians. It has a 'James Bond' Queen bed with hidden pull-down arm rest and cup holders and a Queen sized pull out couch. There is a private porch with a table and 3 chairs.

Located just a few blocks from Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, and the hike-and-bike trail around Lady Bird Lake, you have access to kayaking, swimming, beach volleyball, Frisbee golf, hiking on the greenbelt, the Garden Center, the Nature Center and the Great Lawn. You can also venture out to explore The Live Music Capitol of the world at night. Or relax with the HDTV and Blueray DVD player.


Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park: We are located less than two blocks from the single best swimming pool in the universe, Barton Springs. Located in the heart of Zilker Park, use our beach towels and enjoy the spring fed, chlorine-free waters of this over 1/8 mile long watering hole. Also enjoy the hike and bike trail, boating on the river, frisbee golf, the Nature Center, the Botanical Gardens, the playground and the train for the kids or a picnic on the great lawn.

Downtown Austin just 2 miles away!: I'm sure you've heard of the madness on 6th Street, but certainly don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, 2nd Street, 4th Street and then West 6th Street!

Alamo Drafthouse and The Highball: See a movie while eating dinner or just having a drink at Austin's favorite theater, the Alamo Drafthouse, or enjoy dinner, drinks, live music, dancing, and karaoke at The Highball, both just a short distance from this unit (UNDER CONSTRUCTION UNTIL LATER IN 2013)
