Property description

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 short distance are several of Austin's move famous eateries. Chuy's Tex-Mex and Shady Grove and are all within a mile, and Austin's most famous sushi restaurant, UCHI, is just over a mile away. If espresso is your thing, look no further than Austin Java Co, about a mile away.

Recreation activities nearby are plentiful. During the summer there is live theater Thursday - Sunday nights at the Zilker Hillside Theater and there are also performances Wednesdays - Sundays most weeks at Zach Scott Theater just under a mile away. Live music is all over Austin and one of Austin's most storied venues, The Saxon Pub, is about a mile away! And then there is live music with a great dance flood and karaoke at the popular High Ball next door to the Alamo Drafthouse for watching movies while being served food and beverages - all just over a mile!

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 :)
