Local Reviews

A planned community with HOA maintained amenities including pools, tennis courts and parks and trails

I love the fact that it is close to a major grocery store as well as some restaurants and shops. I also feel safe walking here.

I like that i'm not too far from downtown Austin, but still far enough so that I can avoid most of the I-35 traffic. I also like that there is so much around me and easy access to any given store or restaurant.

I like how close my neighborhood is to everything I need. I work in downtown Austin and I don't sit in a lot of traffic to go to work.

There isnt really anything unique. There arent any interesting places to go hang out with friends or family.

It's close by to a shopping center and a lot of restaurants. It's right by a major highway, 10 min drive to downtown.

Find a Pet Friendly Apartment

Austin is a mid-sized city in Texas and there are plenty of rental opportunities available. Finding an apartment in Austin that will allow pets can be made easier by using additional search criteria such as space requirements, amenities desired and what location in town you'd like to live in.

However through the use of online listings, you'll be able to locate an apartment for you and your dog or cat in one of the many diverse and interesting neighborhoods that populate the city.

What to Expect with a Pet Friendly Apartment

One of the first things to find out when you're looking through apartments listing is how much your deposit will be. You will likely have to pay an extra deposit, depending on the type of pet you have. Animals like cats and dogs can cause damage to floors and walls and the additional deposit will help cover some of those costs when you move out.

When you're looking for an apartment that welcomes pets, you'll also need to take other factors into account as well. These factors include the amount of space you require and what kinds of amenities are important to you. The amount of space you require will likely play a determining factor in whether you choose to rent a 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom apartment.
