We had a great stay while in Austin! Not too far from downtown but quiet enough to not be in the business of the city. Enjoyed a nice meal on the lovely balcony!

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

The bed in the master bedroom was hard on our backs, other than that it was very quiet on our stay because of rain the construction next door delayed.

Amazing View of Barton Creek!!!

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent a weekend lodged at Barton View and just loved it, from the perfect location (very close to Barton Springs Pool) to the neat decoration and amenities. The only thing needing some attention is the kitchen equipment, that might be missing due to borrowing from other properties: colander for pasta, baking trays for heating things in the oven, this kind of stuff. And I only say that as one of the few people that bothers to cook while in Austin (the main reason why I prefer a rental than a hotel), if you don't use the kitchen much you wouldn't even have missed that.

We will most definitely be back in the future!

Hilltop Style

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared the stylish accommodations with another couple at Barton View A last weekend while in Austin for a mountain bike race. A few notes:

The property management company was very thorough, checking in periodically between the time of our reservation thru the day we checked out.

The site is in a quiet residential neighborhood and literally on top of a giant hill--awesome if you're into running or biking on hills--and the view really is spectacular from the deck. In the morning you can just make out the sounds of kids playing on the fields from the school a few blocks away.

The lot next door is under construction but the crew doesn't get started until about 830a in the morning and if you're out and about all day you will have minimal impact. We did receive a special rate due to the inconvenience of the construction.

The bedrooms and baths are spacious and have nice big closets. Kitchen is well stocked and appliances all in good working order.

Lamar Blvd with all of its restaurants/shops/bars is right down the hill and Barton Springs Road also a two-minute drive for more food/drinks. Downtown and 6th Street area are 10-15 minutes by car with traffic (there's always traffic!).

We would not hesitate to recommend Barton View A to friends and family!

Delightful Stay and Close to the Places We Love to Go!

  • 5 of 5

Words to describe this unit are light filled, private, quiet, lovely view, eclectic aesthetic, comfortable, clean, and best of all close to Zilker Park, Barton Springs, and Ladybird Lake Trail. We like to get out and enjoy the outdoors so this is a perfect spot to stay if you want to walk, bike, or drive to Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, or Ladybird Lake Trail (formerly called Town Lake Trail). The condo is comfortable for four adults with 2 bedroom and 2 bathrooms. There are many fabulous places to eat near by but the kitchen is well stocked for preparing a meal. This condo is a terrific base camp for getting out and exploring Austin - downtown, UT Campus, South Lamar, South Congress. We plan to stay here again!

Really Nice Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a really nice place to spend a weekend. Space and amenities were quite accommodating and the patio view was splendid. I typically stay downtown with all the noise, so this peaceful retreat was quite the refreshing change. Uber made it easy to keep the car parked in the carport and still get anywhere at low cost. I would stay here again.
