Average

Good first apartment for young adults. Good location. Only 5 min from downtown. Cheap Uber or taxi ride. Free yoga classes. The apartments have very little storage, flooding, and minor electric issues. Easy fixes, but a pain in the butt. Outside area is nice. Never have an issue with parking.

Overpriced for the qualty of the apartment

The location for these apartments is amazing (very close to Congress, Downtown, and Rainey street), however the finishes are extremely cheap. The buildings are very old and have issues with leaking. The outside is very poorly lit which leads to safety concerns.

Great Community, beautiful and varied floor plans

I LOVE this apartment complex. My neighbors feel like family. We are mostly young professionals with pets (no kids!). We have barbecues, happy hours at the close by Whip In, pool and progressive parties together. My cat loves most of the dogs in the neighborhood. We have a 2 bedroom 2 bath with the living room/kitchen between the bedrooms and I never hear a peep from my roommate. It's a GREAT roommate plan. There are also other varied floor plans to fit your needs. New appliances and wood floors. The apartments are brick and well insulated. We have not used our heater at all this winter. The only thing that could be close to a drawback is that there's community laundry. I had never lived at a place with community laundry before and was dreading it BUT you can get 4 loads of laundry done at once! You save **loads** of time. I consider it a plus.

Great location

I've lived at the Algarita for a year and a half now, and it's really a lovely place to be. It's very close to downtown and to the highway. The surrounding neighborhood is lush, quaint, quiet and beautiful. I do not regret my decision to live here!!!

Great community in a great location.

Algarita Apartments are in a great location in the Travis Heights area of Austin. Less than 5 minute drive to South Congress where all the restaurants and bars are. The Whip In is a 30 second walk from the property if you like craft beer, live music and fusion cuisine. The staff in the leasing office are so great along with the maintenance on site. We have been living there a couple of months and have had no issues at all. The apartments are lovely inside and the property is in great shape. I really enjoy living her with my husband and new puppy. I would highly recommend this property is you are new to the Austin area as they also offer social events every month which is great for getting to know people. Awesome community overall.

About South River City

Situated just south of Lady Bird Lake lies South River City, commonly referred to as Travis Heights. This trendy, upscale neighborhood’s history dates back to the late 1800s, and development took off here in the 1920s. While beautiful new apartment complexes line the area, many small, older bungalow...

Great neighborhood to visit, just alright to live in.

- There are lots of restaurants but few are quick serve and many are pricey, so they get old fast.
- Very nice to be next to Zilker and Town Lake, but we don't use it as often as we could. - Being close to a large park that hosts lots of large events and located at a major intersection (Barton Springs and S. Lamar), there are lots of drunks, bad drivers, litterers, and homeless people. Also, lots of aggressive bikers illegally using the sidewalk which makes walking your dog a nuisance.
This complex is south of the river, and south of all the shops/restaurants on South Congress. This makes it close enough to walk to those venues if you want to, but it's also nice to be a little bit separate to the really crowded area.
It is convenient to getting on Town Lake and going down town. Within a few miles of HEB and Trader Joe's. There are a few sketchy people but if you keep your stuff locked up or in your apt you should be fine.
Cute area - close to South Congress / Downtown
Area is great!
Most of MBAs stay north of the river for socializing.
Safe neighborhood.
Lots of families.
Close to one convenience store/gas station.
Close to one bar/restaurant. 5 minute drive to South Congress/Downtown Very quiet. Close to I-35 highway. Pet friendly. Walkable.
Living on South Congress is awesome... close to work and social life.
