Overview

Barton Hills Condo Rental Photos and Description

Studio sleeps up to 4 in Queen bed and Queen pull out couch; full kitchen!

The Studio, our most affordable efficiency condo, is decorated with a "music" theme and has artwork and photos of Austin musicians. It has a 'James Bond' Queen bed with hidden pull-down arm rest and cup holders and a Queen sized pull out couch. There is a private porch with a table and 4 chairs. Gas grill is shared with The Sweet next door and is on the side of the building.

Located just a few blocks from Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, and the hike-and-bike trail around Lady Bird Lake, you have access to kayaking, canoeing or stand up paddle boarding, swimming, beach volleyball, Frisbee golf, hiking on the greenbelt, the Garden Center, the Nature Center and the playground and the train for the kids or a picnic on the Great Lawn. You can also venture out to explore The Live Music Capitol of the world at night. Or relax with the HDTV and Blueray DVD player.

Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park: We are located just two blocks from the single best swimming pool in the universe, Barton Springs. Use our beach towels, mats and/or chairs and enjoy the spring fed, chlorine-free waters of this over 1/8 mile long watering hole.

Downtown Austin is just 2 miles away!: I'm sure you've heard of the madness on 6th Street, but certainly don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, 2nd Street, 4th Street and then West 6th Street!

Alamo Drafthouse and The Highball: See a movie while eating dinner or just having a drink at Austin's favorite theater, the Alamo Drafthouse, or enjoy dinner, drinks, live music, dancing, and karaoke at The Highball, both just a short distance from this unit.

City of Austin License #007838. We support responsible registration!

An Austin gem!

  • 5 of 5

A weekend get away for my wife and I with our 13 year old son turned into a perfect get away in this gem with a perfect location! Love all the little touches like labels on the light switches, notes with instructions, cabinet doors left open to alert you to available spices, and hooks and towels racks a-plenty! Maps of the area, suggestions of places to go and things to see. The pull out sofa is ingenious how the cushions stay attached so no issues where to put them! Our 13 year old declared this one of the best places we ever stayed due to the large DVD movie collection. Barton Springs pool, Congress bridge bats, kayak on Lady Bird Lake, Lick's ice cream, Chuy's all within a long walk or quick drive. We never had this much fun in our 5 years attending the University of Texas at Austin! Morning coffee with a good book on the quaint porch. Can't wait to come stay again and see even more! Thanks for the hospitality and great digs!

Very Comfortable and Relax staying

  • 5 of 5

The Studio is a quiet and comfortable place to stay. We really had a great rest in this Studio. It is equipped with everything that we needed. Cynthia gave us a very nice welcome and provided us with much helpful information about Austin. The property is exactly like what the photos show, very beautiful and clean and well-maintained. The location is very close to the Zilker Park, which has many activities available for vacation. Yes! we would recommend our friends to rent this property.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I were looking for a nice quiet place to get a way for the weekend to ride bikes to local shops, restaurants, and entertainment, as well as do a little swimming and/or kayaking. We found that all of these goals were easily met due the condo's proximity to Zilker Park and all of the above. The condo was super clean, fully stocked with everything we could possibly need, and communication was perfect as to how to access the property and who to contact if we had any issues. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay or a better weekend. The highlight of our trip was being able to jump into the cool waters of Barton Springs after a full day of bike riding, then going to the food truck park and trying out all of the amazing specialties each one had to offer. We will definitely be booking again in the near future.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Jay and Cynthia are welcoming, accommodating, and responsive guests. The studio has all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay near Zilker Park and downtown Austin. All the little things they include in the kitchen, bathroom, closet space, and bedroom/living space were perfect. I know where I prefer staying the next time I travel to Austin, and where I will refer friends and family doing the same. Thank you so much, Cynthia and Jay!!

Perfect for me

  • 5 of 5

The "Studio" was absolutely perfect for me. Loved the bed, lots of hot water for showering. Everything on one floor.lots of towels including pool towels. Walking to Barton Springs a big plus. Deep Eddy's, another pool, a leisurely two mile walk. could also walk to some restaurants. Cynthia and Jay were great; very accessible. Will definitely stay here again.
