Costumes and Canines in Austin

Austin

Halloween is a special time of year, mainly because it’s the one day you can dress up however and as whomever you want and no one can judge you for it. Anyone can get into a costume: you, your parents, your kids, your neighbors and friends, and, yes, even your dogs. Whether you have a few beloved furry family members of your own, or you simply enjoy the adorable sight of puppies in full costume, we have an upcoming event at Retreat at Barton Creek that’s perfect for you.

On Sunday, October 27th, Bee Cave Central Park will host Barktober, a Halloween-themed event dedicated to man’s best friend. The two-hour event will feature a colorful dog parade, featuring all the costumes upon both dog and owner marching down the street. Afterwards, there will be an exciting costume contest, where you can compete for the Scariest, Funniest, Most Creative, Disney-themed, and Best in Show awards. Even if you and your pets don’t participate in the parade or contest, it’s the perfect venue to have fun, meet fellow dog lovers, and enjoy all the great displays. Admission is entirely free, though if you wish to participate in the contest and parade, there’s a $5 registration fee, and the proceeds will go towards the improvement of the Bee Cave dog park. Best of all, Bee Cave Park is only thirteen miles away from our luxury apartments in Austin, a mere twenty-minute drive.

Savor the best of the spooky holiday with Fido here at the Retreat at Barton Creek. Explore our luxury apartments in Austin and attend the Barktober event this October.

S1: Stylish Studio Apartments in Austin

studio apartments

The best part of any studio apartment is its versatility. True, they may be smaller compared to their other apartment counterparts, but they’re perfect for those who may be on a budget, who are acclimating themselves to a new town, or who can make the most of their amazing organization skills. Our luxury studio apartments at the Retreat at Barton Creek offers more than just a cozy place to live, but a home full of the best amenities for any resident to enjoy.

Our luxury studio apartment floor plan, the S1, brings convenience and comfort together in one neat 505 square foot package. The bedroom is mostly walled off from the rest of the apartment, giving you that much needed privacy during the late hours of the night, and it can hold anything from your softest king-size mattress to your focused computer desk work zone. Organize your outfits and linens with ease using the handy sliding door closet and adjoining linen closet. Wake up in the mornings with a refreshing shower, or soak in the tub for a luxurious evening in our spa-inspired bathroom, complete with washer and dryer connections to conquer your laundry right from the comfort of home. Practice your culinary skills in our modern kitchen, which comes with a breakfast bar and a dining room for a nice table. Finally, lounge back and make the most of spare time in our spacious living room, or step out and soak up the sun from our private patio or balcony space.

Putting For Fun in Austin

Austin

Mini-golf is the ultimate fusion of sport and entertainment: it’s easy enough for anyone to grasp – even the tiniest of players, while still holding the same competitive spirit of its bigger brother sport, golf. Retreat at Barton Creek has all sorts of fun activities at and around our luxury apartments, so you’re never short of family-friendly excitement over the weekend.

Peter Pan Mini-Golf is a local mini-golf venue right by the heart of downtown Austin, which hosts a wide variety of zany arenas and décor to explore. It’s highly rated on both TripAdvisor and Google Reviews for its mixture of whimsy and challenge, and it’s only three miles away from our luxury apartments, a mere ten-minute drive or twenty-minute bus ride away, if you want to save on the hassle of parking. Test your skill on two eighteen-hole courses – the easier yellow East path and the challenging blue West path – or double your fun and try out both on the same day. Conquer crazy obstacles such as the loop-de-loop on the blue course or the colorful turtle on the yellow. Need to cool off in between putts? They offer refreshing shaved ice cones for $2, or bottled waters and sodas for $1 for all guests, and they also allow families to bring coolers for snacks under the warm sun. Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for kids five and younger, with great discounts available for those who dare to brave both courses.

Shoot for the hole-in-one here at Retreat at Barton Creek. Stop by our Austin luxury apartments and Peter Pan Mini-Golf for a fun weekend adventure.
