Overview

Barton Hills Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 large Bedroom with king bed, 1 Bathroom, full size sofa bed, Sleeps up to 4

The fun loving Heart House will certainly make you smile! You will sleep soundly in the king pillow-top mattress and enjoy the 3rd story view from the floor to ceiling windows in the bedroom and from the patio off the sliding glass door. The living room features a vaulted ceiling with clerestory windows which provide wonderful natural lighting. The patio is always a popular hangout spot for your morning coffee, dinner, or a late night cocktail. The Heart House has a fully furnished kitchen to cook in if you so choose. There are 2 gas grills shared by 3 properties in front of the building. The entry is only a 1/2 flight of stairs from the parking spot right in front of this 6 unit building built into a hill in Barton Hills. Have fun finding the hearts in all the art on the walls!

Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park: We are located approx. two blocks from the single best swimming pool in the universe, Barton Springs. Located in the heart of Zilker Park, use our beach towels and enjoy the spring fed, chlorine-free 68 degree waters of this over 1/8 mile long watering hole. Also enjoy the hike and bike trail, boating on the river, frisbee golf, the Nature Center, the Botanical Gardens, the playground and the train for the kids or a picnic on the great lawn. Zilker Park is Austin's crown jewel, and certainly one of the most fantastic outdoor recreational areas on the planet!

Downtown Austin!: The legendary 6th Street is where you can find great live music every night of the week in dozens of bars. Don't bother driving down there, parking is a problem and it's only a $10 cab fare. Also, don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, South 1st Street, 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 or karaoke at The Highball, both just over a mile from this condo.

Loved the location of this rental

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly what we were looking for in a rental at this time. Location was excellent and within a couple miles of everything that we wanted to see in our short stay. Patio with a great view, access to Zilker park within a couple blocks and walking trails along Lady Bird Lake, short driving to great restaurants on Congress Avenue, LBJ Library, and the state capital. Communication with the owners and the condition of the rental was excellent. We would definitely book this gem again in the future .

Great, central location, sweet space

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Heart House!! I was amazed by how close it was to all of my favorite things. It is a half a mile away from Barton Springs Rd.!- Great walking distance too. The space in the apartment was nice. The pictures definitely do it justice. Lovely patio and great widow in the bedroom. We hope to stay here again soon!

The Heart House is a Homerun if you are looking for a fun, spacious getaway for a great value

  • 5 of 5

As someone who spends hours looking at properties and reviews before booking my 4-5 visits a year to Austin, I couldn't have been more pleased with the Heart House. The location is excellent and the fun, light filled spaces made for a pleasant stay on a rainy weekend.

The high ceilings in the living space were a fantastic bonus as were the size of the bedroom and closet. Everything was clean and every amenity from movies to gourmet flavored teas was ready and waiting.

Spending time on the balcony would have been great if the weather had been more cooperative but we still enjoyed the great view from the living space.

Plenty of Austin shopping and restaurants are nearby as well as the University of Texas and downtown. I can whole heartedly recommend the Heart House after a stay that left me wishing I could linger a few more days.

Relaxation with a VIEW in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I travel to Austin a few times a year to visit my daughter at UT and every trip I spend hours looking for property that is visually appealing in a great location at a good value. The Heart House exceeded my expectations. It is a superb location for access to numerous restaurants and shops while being close to downtown and campus. The natural light was a fantasti bonus as was the oversized bedroom.
