Overview

Austin Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 large Bedroom with King bed plus Queen pull-out couch 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, 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 short distance are several of Austin's move 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 for watching 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!

What makes this condo unique

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.

Great!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at the Sweet. The owners were very accommodating, and provided 2 pack and plays, a baby bathtub and a highchair to make our stay more comfortable with our two infants. They also answered all the questions I had very quickly and helpfully. The unit was great and very comfortable. The location was very convenient. Highly recommended!

Just the right touches in the best location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay with Zilker Vacations. With them you have the benefits of a professional business (great customer service, attention to detail, streamlined processes, etc) AND the benefits of cozy, personalized rental space.

The Sweet is appropriately named; it is truly a charming space with just the right amount of leg room. My husband and I stayed for a few days with our daughter (8 month old) and our dog. There was plenty of room in the bedroom for us to keep the pack n play and room enough in the closet and dresser to unpack and stay a while. We ended up all three sleeping in the ridiculously comfortable king size bed and it was so relaxing!

The main living area looks just like it does in the photos. It's not huge, but for spending a weekend away for an anniversary it was perfect! We moved the easy chair and put our dog kennel there and the owners even provided a high chair for us to have in the dining area (so thoughtful of them to ask)!

We didn't have to buy any supplies like toilet paper, trash bags, etc. (we've stayed in places that had you do it yourself) and we were SO close to every option for food and groceries.

The property was very clean and well-maintained inside and out. The parking is kind of different for The Sweet because it's at the bottom of a hill, but the owner was very sweet about letting us park in a different spot so that our SUV would fit comfortably.

I would absolutely recommend Zilker Vacations overall and The Sweet if you are a smaller family or even just one person. They are close to EVERYTHING and they are wonderfully accommodating hosts!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. We love to hear when our guests appreciate the effort we go to to look after the details! I wish there was something we could do to change the parking situation, but since we are built in a hill, it is what it is. We are happy to try to find guests another open spot if the one for The Sweet is too difficult to manage. And best of luck with socializing the dog!

We can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, Zilker Vacation rentals has provided us with a perfectly equipped, thoughtfully decorated, comfortable condo. Although we did not need the kitchen on this, our second Austin visit as renters, we could see that it is as well equipped as our previous rental at Park Place. We look forward to staying in this gem again.
