3800 Main offers some of the best amenities and finishes for the lowest price in Midtown. They have a pool, two gyms, two clubhouses, grills, and computer rooms. Management is responsive and reasonable.
Great amenities and city-life feel
This property is very accommodating. Amenities are great. Free Starbucks machine in the club room, free gym, gated parking garage, key fob required to enter the building. If you want a little city-life and have a vehicle, this is a great place. It's about 5 miles away from campus, and takes roughly 20-25 minutes to get to school in the morning, and about 20 minutes to get home in the afternoon.
The apartment itself is large and well laid out. Each floor of the building shares a free washing machine and dryer. HOWEVER the apartment manager who lives in the apartment building is terrible. She has four animals, two of which are dogs, even though the building doesn't allow residents to have dogs. None of the animals are trained and they bark, howl, slam against the door, and fight at all hours. They've broken down her back door twice, and have caused damages. Their feces are left in the shared backyard of the building for days and weeks on end and have caused other residents' and neighbors' animals to get sick. The police have been called before because of blood smeared on her windows, which ended up being from the dogs fighting each other. All such noise and safety complains fall on deaf ears, as they are sent to her. The management company refuses to talk to any residents, and directs all contact back to her.
If she were to leave, the apartment would be large and a great deal for the price. However as - is, it is loud, scary, and potentially dangerous for us as residents and our pets.
Relaxed, young environment
This complex is perfect for single living or living with a roommate in you 20's. I live in a one bedroom and love the casual and young environment. It is not loud or flooding by students. It is right off of 183, 35, and close to Mopac. I recommend! hf
Decent for the price and location
I've had an overall good experience for the past few years at this location. They do need to offer a little more to long term residents as far as continued maintenence. Changing smoke detectors and a new air filter don't go a long way after 4 years of normal wear and tear. The grounds are nice and kept well, gym facilities, club house and pools are nicely maintained. Great access to everything you need an 10 mins from DT
We really love living here. The proximity to the train is a really cool option when we want to go out, and their are plenty of bars and restaurants within easy reach. The complex is well maintained and the staff are friendly. Parking is generally very easy it's a great location to commute from.
Midtown Commons is conveniently located in mid town Austin right on the metro Station on N.Lamar and Airport. The community is nice, clean and secure with multiple shops within the community including a local brewery. The community is on 15 min drive to the airport and about the same to the town lake in down town Austin. The only upgrade I would personally ask for is a bigger Gym and routine maintenance to garage doors locks.
Decent Complex for Quiet/Normal Individuals
Pros: Free Parking, Maintenance responds within 48-72 hours, Apartments are fairly spacious
Cons: New management employees are NOT polite, No amenities included (including paying TWO DIFFERENT services for trash), Gym/pool not open consistently
Great Place, Great Location
I've lived here for two years and absolutely love it. You literally will not find a better place in this location. It comes with a washer and dryer and that's hard to find. You cannot beat the price for this awesome location! I can also walk to Starbucks and the grocery store.
Too Expensive for what you get
Rent increased from $919 at move-in May 2013 to $1,158 starting March 2015 for 340SF apt ($239 increase; utilities not included). I'm moving! Too many leaking pipes in bldg. One cleaning person for a 9-story bldg. Only love the location & free Wi-Fi.
Quite, good maintenance
Good maintenance services.
Location is a little shady, a lot of homeless people. But overall a good place to stay. Nice spacious rooms. Loving room and bedrooms are quite large. Kitchen is new and has all you need including microwave, stove, and fridge.
Highly Recommend the Retreat
Great location & price. highly recommend this apartment complex. the gym is 24 hours and it is on south lamar near tons of dining and right next to the highway. there are also trails nearby and two pools. 360 & mopac are right down the street as well.
My First Apartment
Came to Austin for the UT Economics MA program. It's only one year, so I needed something not too expensive but nice. This apartment was exactly what I was looking for. Staff is fantastic and haven't had a major problem yet. They did take a little while on repairs but eventually it all worked out. Would recommend!
Retreat at Barton Creek
Grounds are pretty and well kept. People are mostly quiet. The only thing the drives me crazy is that the wifi in the gym is really spotty and the gym itself is a little out of date. Nice view of the infinity pool from the gym though. Love the location of my unit and the office staff are great. They throw fun holiday parties alot through the year as well which is a nice touch.
Maybe I just got unlucky with my neighbors :(
Living in an expensive apartment, I would think I would have better access to what's offered. The clubhouse used to close at 9 pm, but since new management the closing hour has changed to 6 pm. Which leaves that unassailable to people who work the normal 9-5 job. Every time I've been in contact with management they are not very friendly, and are very monotoned. Oh and my upstairs neighbors suck! I get it, I live in an apt. But when the floors are so thin that you can hear the person above you having sex because their bed is so squeaky or when they decide to let their dog play fetch inside, it's very annoying.
