Apartments in Austin for Cooks

Everyone has a favorite meal to eat – whether it’s eaten to celebrate a personal victory, to mourn a devastating loss, or simply because it’s what you happen to crave. Some people love vegetables, others push them as far away from them as possible; some love to save dessert for last, and others like a sweet nibble before dinnertime. Whatever your preferences may be, nothing brings family and friends together more than what’s shared at the dining table, and here at the Retreat at Barton Creek, we have the luxury apartments in Austin and amenities you need to make that happen.


Every single luxury apartment here includes a contemporary style kitchen, perfect for cooks of any skill level and background. The laminate wood or stained concrete flooring in the living and dining areas will match your décor scheme with ease while withstanding everything from heavy traffic to accidental ketchup spills. Roast, boil, sauté, and chill to the right measurements in our modern black-on-black appliance package. Wash your hands, dishes, and fresh produce in the double stainless-steel sink with a garbage disposal to tear down unwanted waste.

Zilker Park: Austin Trail of Lights

Perhaps one of the greatest things about the holiday season is the lights. Even the simplest displays of string lights in the neighborhood adds a sense of joy and merriment to a bright time of year, the vivid colors imitating the brilliant stars in the night sky. Here at the Retreat at Barton Creek, our great location by Austin gives you access to dozens of spectacular light displays throughout the city, though one, in particular, stands out above the rest at Zilker Park.

Signing in on its 51st year, the annual Austin Trail of Lights is in full swing at Zilker Park; the signature city park is located only three miles from our luxury apartments, allowing you to attend the festivities by a ten-minute drive or a bike ride through the Barton Creek trails. Starting on December 9th, the display will open to the public, and with so many activities and special events, it’s easy to find something for everyone. University of Texas students can come in for UT night to celebrate success for their future; police, firemen, and veterans alike can get their appreciation on Heroes Night; watch your favorite holiday films on Movie Night, and more. Bring in fresh cans and foods to help feed the hungry through the various charities in place, listen to live performances of classic holiday music from local talents around the city, and enjoy holiday refreshments like tasty hot cocoa or warm carnival-style treats. Tickets are available for pre-purchase online on the website, though certain days may include free admission.

Luxury Austin Apartment Community Amenities at The Retreat

When you think about living somewhere urban, perhaps you still want to feel a little closer to nature or a little out of the way. It’s seemingly impossible to balance both, while still retaining the same perks that come with urban luxury apartments. Here at The Retreat at Barton Creek, we offer the rare experience of having both. Being just outside downtown Austin yet right next to the Greenbelt allows our apartments to feel closer to nature, allowing you to relax and still be only minutes from the thriving capital of Texas. Even being a bit out of the way, nothing is lost and we provide only the best from our luxury Austin apartment community amenities, ensuring you truly feel what a luxury apartment should be.


The token community amenity is, of course, the pool, however at The Retreat we step it up with infinity edge pools with a sundeck, as well as a lap pool, making sure you have the room to do what you like, whether it be escaping the heat or toning up with some aquatic exercise. Speaking of exercise, if you find yourself in need of adding a workout to your daily routine, don’t worry about a gym membership, as we offer a 24-hour fitness center which allows you to workout at your own pace and on your own time. When work is done and you feel the need to relax and get in some social time, stop by our clubroom for a game of billiards, or just to mingle. These, of course, are just a handful of our community amenities.
