Overview

About the property

1 bedroom with King Tempurpedic bed + queen pull-out in living room, sleeps 4

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, (beach mats, noodles and/or camp chairs on request) 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 Botanical Gardens, 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 more 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 where you watch 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 :)

Why Jay Reynolds or Cynthia Reynolds chose Austin

Our family has lived and worked in the Zilker neighborhood for more than 30 years and we love sharing it with others!

Walking to Zilker Park is the best perk of the neighborhood. We love spending time outdoors and especially cooling off in Barton Springs on the hot summer afternoons!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent two weeks in The Sweet and couldn't have been happier. The location was perfect -- easy to walk to the park, and even a convenience store and mailbox close by. The apartment was nicely decorated and very completely furnished, with every kitchen convenience imaginable. The Reynolds were most accommodating, even letting us come a day before our time, with only a few hours notice, when I messed up our travel schedule. They answered all our questions promptly. When our travels bring us back to Austin, we will certainly try to stay here again.

Perfect for relaxation and proximity

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, well decorated condo perfect for a long weekend getaway. Has all the furnishings one needs and the bed is quite comfortable. Cynthia and Jay were great to work with and certainly proactive which I do appreciate. The driveway is steep but not problematic for my SUV. Overall a nice experience.

Better than Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Hearth House instead of The Sweet and it was spectacular. It was clean and near to The Hand Build Motorcycle Show. The owners were always in contact with me via e-mail or cellphone. They allow me to check out late without charging us an extra fee. For sure, I will return next year with my partner in crime.
