Barton Heights studio description

Our 'very cool' apartment is a quaint little hideaway decorated in the owner's favorite teal colors. The comfy queen bed will sleep 2 people, with a plush double futon for additional guests. The full kitchen is perfect for creating your favorite meals, a contemporary bathroom with a big walk-in shower, a private deck, and parking all add to the charm of this studio.
Plan to eat in or walk down to restaurant row which is just a few blocks away. Walk to tons of outdoor activities such as Zilker Park, where you can swim in Barton Springs, one of the largest spring-fed pools, canoe on Lady Bird Lake, get some good exercise by renting bicycles, or walk the hike & bike trail, kayak, play beach volleyball or frisbee golf, explore the Botanical Gardens, or ride Zilker train with your kids.
Just 1.6 miles from downtown where you can enjoy sights and sounds in the Live Music Capitol of the world. Very close to SoCo, SoFi, and can walk to SoLa. Your just can't beat it!!!

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: The owners are Scott and Debbie Sherrill who live in the main detached house with their little shih tzu, Tony Parker. Scott is a native Austinite and actually grew up just a couple of miles from where they live now. Debbie got to Austin as fast as she could in 1973. Both have enjoyed watching Austin grow and change, and love to hear about their guest's adventures while visiting here. They are as hands-on or hands-off as you want them to be.

                      Why the Owner Chose Barton Heights:
                      The Zilker Studio Apartment was originally renovated to accomodate Debbie's aging mom. Her mom never made it to Austin but they decided to finish the renovation so friends and family would have a cozy place to stay while visiting, and are able to offer it to folks needing a great place to stay while visiting Austin. Everyone who has stayed in the studio apartment has absolutely loved the apartment, the location and us!!!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                      You just can't beat this location! It's close to everything. Even though the apartment is small, the vaulted ceiling makes it feel spacious and roomy. A sliding glass door lets abundant light in to brighten your day, and the deck is a cool relaxing place to enjoy the perfect Texas weather. The parking spot is just steps from the apartment door and is used just by our guests.
