Overview

About the property

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 dining area through 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 8 steps 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, beach mats, noodles and/or camp chairs 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 ride share or 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.

Perfect peaceful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! Simple and clean with every necessary provision: deck with a neighboring blooming lilac tree, laundry facilities, coffee pot, microwave, BBQ grill and even the salt and pepper and sugar and olive oil! We couldn’t have asked for more. We loved the art work and the heart-themed design. Thank you Jay and Cynthia and Peach!

Cozy Stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four made ourselves at home ! We were able to play at a park, rent bikes and of course swim in the Barton Springs Pool. The condo was well equipped as well.

Every aspect of it was wonderful and met/exceeded our desires: location, friendliness/helpfulness of the owners, layout/supplies/furniture in apartment and anything else one would want. We had a great time here!
