About Carlos Martinez

I have worked in the Real Estate and wealth management industry for over 20 years. I enjoy travel, nature, art, culture and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Carlos Martinez purchased this house in 1999

Why Carlos Martinez chose Austin

Convenience! Walk to outdoor activities...swimming holes, pools, parks, hike & bike trails, restaurants...something for everyone! Plus, just minutes from downtown...convenient for festival-goers, holiday travelers or anyone that wants to be near shopping districts and Austin's main attractions!

What makes this house unique

The home is private as you do not face any other homes on the street. There are plenty of hiking trails and you are surrounded by nature, yet a 5 minute drive to downtown. This is a very friendly and desirable neighborhood in Austin. You will see many smiling faces each day walking and jogging the streets morning, noon and night.

A-OK

  • 3 of 5
The location is definately the best thing about this place! It's a neighborhood with character and its a quick 5-10 min trip downtown. And the property managers were great to work with. The house was very clean. The only bad thing I could say about the house was the bathroom tub definately needs some fixing - the tub would not drain properly so you were standing in water up to your ankles. And the most important thing - the coffee pot was broken :( Both two simple fixes thankfully!

Near UT Campus

  • 4 of 5
The duplex was exactly as describe. The beds were clean, nice and comfortable. Very cozy - kitchen just right. We found the 4 days and 3 nights very pleasant - the location was perfect. Close distance to the UT campus...all the restaurants and 6th street activities. We will call on this property next time we are in Austin...hopefully yard maintenance will be mowed so we can enjoy the front and backyard grill next time. Hook 'em Horns!!

Stay with us in October and enjoy the 3-day ACL Music Festival. The home is located within walking distance to Zilker Park where the festival is held each year. Trust us...you don't want to deal with having to park a car on the festival grounds! Enjoy Barton Springs (also walking distance) which is a spring-fed pool. On the other side of the pool is a large park complete with picnic tables and a huge playground for children complete with a train that circles around the park. Enjoy sno cones as you lay out on the banks of the pool. For those more active, jog or bike on the Town Lake trails or rent a canoe. Nearby restaurants include Shady Grove (family friendly local place which often has live music), Austin Java, Uncle Billy's BBQ and microbrew, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Baby A's Tex-Mex (home of the purple margarita), Daily Juice and Flipnotics Coffee.

Head east a few blocks to shop in the nearby South Congress (Soco) district. Find thrift stores, vintage shops, a costume store, candy stores, tons of antiques and homemade items, clothing stores, retro toy stores, and lots of locally owned boutiques. Grab a pizza at Homeslice, enjoy Tex-Mex at Guerro's Taco Bar, relax at Sunday brunch at South Congress Cafe or the Woodland, bring your appetite to the delicious Vespaio Restaruant, see a local band at the Continental Club, play a round of mini-golf at Peter Pan Golf, or check out a play at Zach Scott Theater. Don't forget to stop on the South Congress bridge and check out the bats!

South 1st Street is also a few blocks from the home and is a street lined with authentic Mexican pastry shops, antique stores, record stores, boutiques and Polvo's Mexican Restaurant.

A 5 minute drive will get you to the heart of downtown where you can visit the world famous 6th Street, home of wall-to-wall bars and live music every night of the week. Eat, drink...even catch a movie at Alamo Drafthouse. Visit the new 2nd Street Shopping District to catch a movie and shop local boutiques as well as high-end specialty stores. There are dozens of cafes, coffee houses, bars and restaurants to suit every taste imaginable. If you would like a chaufferred tour of downtown Austin, hop aboard the Austin Duck Tour which is a boat-on-wheels! The tour guide will fill you in on Austin history while driving you around the downtown area and ultimately into the lake for a quick boat ride near Hula Hut and Mozarts Coffeehouse before returning you to your original destination.

Looking for a 24-hour eatery? Check out Magnolia Cafe (try the Magnolia Mud or the pancakes) or Kerby Lane Cafe.

Looking for something for the kids? Check out the Scottish Rite Theater for a variety of live plays such as Peter Pan, cool them off in the many splash-pads around town, take them for a dip at Deep Eddy Pool (they offer movies there during the summer), catch some live music at Blues on the Green or visit the numerous parks throughout the city.

Coming to Austin in November? Check out the Formula One Races! You can also let the kids enjoy the Chuy's holiday parade down South Congress.

If you need any tips on where to go and what to see...just ask! We are happy to make recommendations!
