This is our guest house, newly constructed this year. It is in a setting where guests can enjoy privacy. The Zilker neighborhood is a very interactive place where neighbors know each other, take walks, ride bikes. We want to maintain the family oriented environment, and ask our guests to respect the neighborhood. No parties please.
Susana purchased this House in 2013
Why Susana chose Barton Heights
We live in the heart of Austin, a vibrant city with much to offer. We are within walking distance of numerous restaurants, the hike and bike trails, Zilker Park (short walk to ACL!) and shopping. It is perfect place to stay when coming in for ACL, SXSW, Film Festival, Austin Kite Festival, UT football games, XGames. It's a walk or short taxi ride from downtown and UT.
What makes this House unique
The guest house is newly constructed. The best feature is the incredible downtown view. City of Austin STR License OL 2013 124632

The location was ideal. Lots of walkable options for food and drinks. Convenient access to river-front trails and downtown. Would recommend.
Excellent host, home, and location!
Excellent location! The home had everything we needed. I liked the decor, could tell it was newly done. Would recommend to friends staying in Austin! Thank you, Susana!!
We were in Austin for a girls weekend and had the best time! Loved the view and cleanliness of the apartment.
The Posada Terrace in Austin is awesome.
Susana's Posada Terrace in Austin off of S. Lamar St. is awesome. It's simply a great location and we really loved the fact that it was a private 2brm/2bath with a balcony situated in the back yard, with total privacy. We would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to get downtown quickly, who enjoys the great city view, and their privacy. We plan on staying here again next time we're in the Austin area!.

Nice, clean property in a great location
There were 4 of us visiting Austin for the weekend, and this place was great. Location was great, we walked to several restaurants and over to Zilkernark for a nice morning hike/walk. The house was clean, quiet and had nice amenities. It fit 4 of us comfortably, although 2 did share the downstairs bed. We'd recommend this property and would stay there again.
Great Location and well appointed!
This rental is great! The location is fantastic for walking to shops and places to eat. Uber rides are a short distance and easy to schedule. The owner has many items that on hand in case you forgot something. The apartment is clean and well maintained. I would stay again.
Jog or bike on Lady Bird Lake trails or rent a canoe. Nearby restaurants include Shady Grove (family friendly local place which often has live music), Austin Java, Uncle Billy's BBQ and microbrewery, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Baby A's Tex-Mex (home of the purple margarita), Daily Juice and Flipnotics Coffee.
Head east a few blocks to shop in the nearby South Congress (SoCo) district. Find thrift stores, vintage shops, a costume store, candy store, antique and clothing stores, etc. Grab a pizza at Homeslice, relax at Sunday brunch at South Congress Cafe or the Woodland, enjoy Italian at the delicious Vespaio Restaruant, see a local band at the Continental Club, play a round of mini-golf at Peter Pan Golf (walking distance), or check out a play at Zach Scott Theater (walking distance). Don't forget to stop on the S. Congress bridge and check out the bats!
South 1st Street is also a few blocks from the home and is a street lined with authentic Mexican pastry shops, antique stores, record stores, boutiques and Polvo's Mexican Restaurant.
A 5 minute drive will get you to the heart of downtown where you can visit the world famous 6th Street, home of wall-to-wall bars and live music every night of the week. Visit the new 2nd Street Shopping District to catch a movie and shop local boutiques as well as high-end specialty stores. There are dozens of cafes, coffee houses, bars and restaurants to suit every taste imaginable. If you would like a tour of downtown Austin, hop aboard the Austin Duck Tour which is a boat-on-wheels! The tour guide will fill you in on Austin history while driving you around the downtown area and ultimately into the lake for a quick boat ride near Hula Hut and Mozart's Coffeehouse before returning you to your original destination.
