This comfy, new, modern studio-apartment is perched on Cliff Drive (a cliff) 2 minutes walk above the entrance to Zilker Park, the site of Austin City Limits Live Music Fest... and Restaurant Row with Austin's signature Tex-Mex restaurant, Chuy's, serving huge, inexpensive deluxe platters and their sister eatery, The Shady Grove, or Juliet's Italian Ristorante and across the street is Juiceland & the Kava Bar with one of two trailer-food parks, all a stone's throw away on Restaurant Row, a short walk down a wooded hill. A guest once said, "You're 5 minutes from 'everything Austin'..." and its literally true. You can be Downtown in your seat at the Paramount theatre in 10 minutes or walk to Whole Foods World Hdqtrs, founded here, just a short walk, over Town Lake across a beautiful foot bridge on South Lamar. Conveniently walk to all SXSW venues... The Convention Center is 1.5 miles; the Long Center and Auditorium Shores are a half mile away; and, ACL Live in Zilker Park is our immediate neighbor, less than a five (5) minute walk inside thru the venue's city-side entrance. Wake up on The Cliff above the famed Barton Springs pool with a pot of French-press gourmet coffee, you can walk for a swim or an adventure on Town Lake, walk/ jog the Green Belt just a minute from your door. Canoes and Kayaks for rent just minutes down the hill from your door. Choose from many eateries, coffee shops, or the wonderful Daily Juice bar, all minutes walk through a safe, quiet pocket neighborhood; or, you can make your own at the Bamboo Room Studio. There is a private outdoor patio to the side. The apartment is set up for two and can accommodate a 3rd, in the extra bed in the loft up a half-spiral stair. The walk to Barton Springs has an option to go through the woods beside the Umlauf Sculpture Garden, down a rocky trail, which is literally a "woods path" directly into the spring-fed pools around which Native Americans settled for millennia--now the soul of Austin--to bathe in the healing, mineral-spring fed water bubbling up into an enormous pool and waterfall, the reason populations settled here and drew the first Austin settlement that became the heart of Texas--put a towel around your neck and walk down thru' the woods for the experience. The Saxon Pub is our neighbor --a legendary music scene that still has our best players appearing on weeknights for a $5 entry, it's a 10 minute walk from our door-- and you pass the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema South on the way, where film directors and actors congregate when in town, serving awesome food and drinks during the movies on perfect screens in intimate stadium seating. South Austin 78704 is our 'hood and this Zip Code is the inspiration for "Keep Austin Weird" due to the proliferation artists and musicians living here on the south shore of the downtown... many many of the very best restaurants and small music venues are immediately available for walking--South Austin is the spirit & heart of the true, laid-back Austin lifestyle that has made our little city famous.
