Austin Heights Condos are located in one of the city's most desirable areas, 78704. The building was erected in the 1960's, but renovated in 2006 with many of the original features incorporated into the design.
The property is located right on South Lamar, so walking to several local restaurants and downtown is easily done. Also, there's a bus line directly in front of the building. Some of the local restaurants and bars include: Uchi, Luke's Trailer, Barley Swine, El Alma, Gibson Bar, OPA and Henri's and many more.
Zilker Park and the hike and bike trail is a 10 minute walk away.
This unit is directly in front of the pool, featuring a nice view from the living room window. You'll have plenty of space in the 750sq ft., with its one bedroom, full bath, kitchen and dining areas. The bed is a queen-sized adjustable tempur-pedic. Also offering In-condo laundry, as well as two flat screen TVs with Time Warner Cable and Apple TV. The property has a gated parking lot and comes with one parking space.
No Smoking and No pets. Renters may use the pool, but may not bring additional guests.
John's place is great, and as many other people have said it's a great location for all the amenities of the city, SXSW etc. It's immaculately finished and super-comfortable, a welcome getaway after your amazing days out in Austin. It was great knowing John was always on the end of the phone, but really everything you need for your stay is set up in the condo, you feel right at home. Highly recommended :)
Nothing but great things to say about our experience at John's condo. The location was perfect for those traveling to ACL- it was a quick walk to and from Zilker Park, near some great restaurants, and only a $10 cab ride to other points of interest (South Congress, 6th St). The condo is spacious, clean, and stylish, with a bed so comfortable it was hard to get out of some mornings. We loved being able to take a quick dip in the pool out front after long hot days in the park. John was an incredibly generous host, allowing us flexibility in check-in/check-out times to accommodate our flights in and out of town and replying promptly to all communication. John is a host that goes out of his way to make you feel welcome, which was very appreciated. We felt right at home!
Thanks for leaving the place in great shape. I got there before the house cleaner and started to cancel the cleaning because the place looked so good! I did have her clean, but even she said how nice you two must be because she had very little to do. Many thanks, Sarah! Come back anytime!
What a fantastic place to stay in Austin! John was very explicit in his check in procedures, communication was great. The condo is BEAUTIFUL and very clean. He had a note for us and ammenities in the fridge for us. The location of the condo is perfect walking distance to most everything you will need in the downtown, S. Lamar and Congress areas. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a quiet, clean, beautiful place to stay in Austin.
John's apartment is really nice, spacious, and with great furnishings (including a foam mattress that is really comfortable!). It's in a good location, within walking distance to downtown Austin, SoCo, and Zilker.
John himself was extremely responsive and helpful during SXSW, a time when a lot of other hosts can be flaky.
I'd recommend John and his apartment to anyone!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! My wife and I stayed here to attend the 2013 Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL), which is an easy 3/4 mile walk...so convenient! Downtown, the State Capitol, the University of Texas, and South Congress (SoCo), are all quick, easy drives. The condo is very well-decorated, fully-supplied, and clean. John is a great guy, and a welcoming, helpful host.
