Property description

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 4 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, canoeing or stand up paddle boarding, swimming, beach volleyball, Frisbee golf, hiking on the greenbelt, the Garden Center, the Nature Center and the playground and the train for the kids or a picnic on 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 just two blocks from the single best swimming pool in the universe, Barton Springs. Use our beach towels, mats and/or chairs and enjoy the spring fed, chlorine-free waters of this over 1/8 mile long watering hole.

Downtown Austin is 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.
