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 :)

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!

Super comfortable furnishings (bed!), nicely appointed, organized / supplied kitchen.
Honestly, I was a bit disappointed with drive-up appeal but the privacy, quiet, trees and apartment all spoke for itself with simplicity and hospitality. Also important was feeling safe as I traveled alone.
Enjoyed wine and cheese in the porch in the evening.
(One thought - paint a mural on the retaining wall outside the kitchen area windows !). Thank you. I'll be back.
The Sweet was awesome! Very clean and close to everything. The owners communication was great and provided lots of recommendations for things to do around the city. We would stay here again.
Perfect, private, cozy condo.
One of our best condo rentals ever. Really appreciated all of the good, thoughtful communication with the owners, including a driveway "ice alert!" Super cute and well-equipped. They have thought of everything.
So glad you enjoyed The Sweet. Too bad about our steep driveway, but icy conditions don't come too often in Austin. Hope to see you again soon!
We loved being right next to Zilker and could walk to several restaurants on Barton Springs
I was very pleased with The Sweet! I had everything that I needed to make me very comfortable. In addition, the location is great. Thank you for a terrific visit!
Close to everything
Recently spent 4 nights at The Sweet. Very clean and comfortable. I will try to stay here the next time I come to Austin.
