The apartment was bright and well furnished, very clean, and accessible.



Love, loved, loved the beautiful prairie reserve and lovely park. The pool was an added plus and welcomed in this heat.

Great Apartment for short or long stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for about a week on a working vacation and found it very clean, comfortable and convenient to getting around the Austin area. Also, the community pool was very nice and having access to it was a big plus. There's a great walking/running trail around the community and tennis courts near by in case it's not too hot to take advantage of them! The landlords are great and were very helpful with suggestions for local things to do (restaurants, bars, etc.). If you want the convenience of having a kitchen, the one in the apartment is pretty nice and has most of what you need for some good cooking. There is a parking spot right next to the entrance off the street. Overall, very nice, new, modern apartment that definitel beats a hotel stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. I was worried that someone might have gotten your card information and was running a scam. Sorry about being so curt.
