Zilker condo description

City of Austin License #2014 007837. Located on the edge of Barton Hills, just 2 blocks from Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool, The Sweet is a perfect spot for a couple, or small family, coming to enjoy what Austin does best: get outdoors!

We provide the beach towels, now you just have to stroll down the hill and take the plunge into the clear spring fed waters of Barton Springs. At 68 degrees year round, it will certainly refresh you all the way to your core! If swimming isn't your thing, there is the Garden Center, Nature Center, hike and bike trails, greenbelt trail, great lawn, frisbee golf, and the playground and kidee train for the little ones. And if you're not traveling with bikes, don't worry, we've got you covered. We've got several options for bike rentals right in the neighborhood!

Austin at it's best: Austin is also known for it's dining excellence. Within a half mile are several of Austin's move famous eateries. Chuy's Tex-Mex and Shady Grove and are all within about a 1/2 mile, and Austin's most famous sushi restaurant UCHI is just another few blocks down the street.

Recreation activities nearby are plentiful. During the summer and fall there is live theater most nights of the week at the Zilker Hillside Theater, there are also live performances almost nightly at Zach Scott Theater just a quarter mile away. Live music is all over Austin and one of Austin's most storied venues, The Saxon Pub, is about a half mile away! And then there is bowling and karaoke at the popular High Ball and the Alamo Drafthouse for watching movies while being served food and beverages (under construction)- all within a mile!

The Heart of Austin: If espresso is your thing, look no further than Flipnotics Coffee Space or Austin Java Co, less than a mile away.

Needless to say, if you know Austin I'm just preaching to the choir. But if you've never visited here then you are in for a real treat!

Come stay and play in the heart of Austin...you probably won't want to leave :)

NOTE: We are licensed with the City of Austin to collect and pay the hotel occupancy tax.

You honestly don't need a car if you're on the fence, just rent some bikes and you'll have easy access to just about anything you'd want to do in the area. Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Botanical Gardens, The Barton Creek Greenbelt, the Great Lawn (home of ACL), Chuy's Tex-Mex, Shady Grove, the Saxon Pub, Flipnotics Coffee Space, Casa De Luz, and so many more awesome places that are less than a mile away. Come Enjoy :)

                                  Golf: I (Jay Reynolds) am a ex-professional golfer and instructor! So if you're interested in playing golf, taking golf lessons, or just going out to hit a few balls, we can certainly make that happen!
