                  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.
