You really can't get much closer to the action than this! This private condo is a newly renovated unit in the heart of Austin's South Central District.

Nice apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5

This was an excellent place to stay to visit Austin. It is close to downtown but on a quiet street. For runners and walkers, the location is excellent as it is only 1/4 mile from a great trail system that follows Barton Creek and the banks of the Colorado River. There is a small market next door with provisions (you should check the expiration date on perishable items as some of the ones we wanted had expired a few weeks prior). There is a good food truck location less than a mile away. The only issue we encountered is that the Internet connection is very slow (4Mbps download with high latency). If you need a good connection, you may not be satisfied with this. Also, be aware that there isn't cable TV, just over-the-air broadcasts. If neither of those things bothers you, this is a great place and I highly recommend it.

Phenomenal stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this neat property enough. Sean was a great host and the place is convenient to everything that makes Austin great. I'm gonna miss my breakfast tacos and morning walk to Lou Neff Point. Hiking, kayaking, art, gardens, great restaurants, all within close proximity.

The Barton Hills neighborhood is located in Austin's coveted South Central District. It sits on the edge of the Barton Creek Greenbelt, and is surrounded by world-renowned amenities such as Barton Springs and Zilker Park, home of the ACL music festival. Lady Bird Lake and Downtown are only blocks away, where you will find the Convention Center's SXSW festival, Auditorium Shores, The Long Center, 6th Street, shopping on Congress Ave (SoCo) and so many more bars and restaurants it would be impossible to list them all! Rent a bike nearby and enjoy everything Austin has to offer!
