Austin Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 large Bedroom with King bed plus Queen pull-out couch in living room, sleeps 4

City of Austin License #2014 007837. 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, 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 Garden Center, 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 half mile are several of Austin's move famous eateries. Chuy's Tex-Mex and Shady Grove and are all within about a 1/2 mile, and Austin's most famous sushi restaurant UCHI is just another few blocks down the street.

Recreation activities nearby are plentiful. During the summer and fall there is live theater most nights of the week at the Zilker Hillside Theater, there are also live performances almost nightly at Zach Scott Theater just a quarter mile away. Live music is all over Austin and one of Austin's most storied venues, The Saxon Pub, is about a half mile away! And then there is bowling and karaoke at the popular High Ball and the Alamo Drafthouse for watching movies while being served food and beverages (under construction)- all within a mile!

The Heart of Austin: If espresso is your thing, look no further than Flipnotics Coffee Space or Austin Java Co, less than a mile away.

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 :)

NOTE: We are licensed with the City of Austin to collect and pay the hotel occupancy tax.

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.

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!

PLACE WAS SO CUTE AND CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
Place was so convenient to everything and the owners were more than accommodating. They really made us feel welcomed and wanted to make sure we knew we could contact them foe anything. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need and more. The bed was also very comfortable. We would definitely rent from these owners again.

A SWEET SUITE

  • 5 of 5
Great little place to stay and very well equipped compared to other places we have rented in other cities. Close to not only the parks and trails, but also the Violet Crown art film theater (GO there!), the Long Event Center, and too many restaurants to mention. The owners are very accommodating, quickly replacing the dishwasher when it went belly up and installing a land line for us for the month to use on some lengthy (5-7 hr) daily teleconferences. We'll be back.

GREAT LOCATION AND AMAZING SERVICE

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I had an amazing time in Austin as the location was great for biking around Lady Bird Lake. Cab downtown was only $10+ and driving to all the places we wanted to eat were no more than 15 minutes away. Cynthia even offered us free tickets, Uchi gift certificates, and were very flexible with our check-out time. We will definitely be coming back!

WONDERFUL STAY AT THE SWEET

  • 5 of 5
Jay, Cynthia and Peach Reynolds have successfully created a perfect home away from home with The Sweet. Everything one needs when staying away from home was provided and Cynthia emailed the day after my arrival to make sure I arrived ok and had everything I needed. The park is just a couple minute walk from the condo and everywhere I needed to go in Austin was easily accessible from my location. I will not hesitate to rent from ZilkerVacations on my nice trip to Austin.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

"The Sweet" is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood near Barton Springs. It has everything you need and a little more. The booking was easy and friendly and the thoughtful little touches really give this place a special point of difference. It's safe, secure and well presented with relaxed and warm decor. I would stay here again without a doubt.
