Hello,
We are moving in a few months and need to live in the Arboretum area for 6-12 months. We are looking for a 2-3 bedroom, 2 bath apartment - preferably a 2-story town home. We would like it to be "resort-like" with pool(s), nice facilities, newer construction or rehabbed - basically, we want to make a splash with the kids so they are excited about the move.

It can't be too far from 183 and also, not north of the Spicewood Springs/McNeil exit or south of 360/183 exchange.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you!

So it sounds like you're reading a marketing brochure for Riata, but I'm not sure if they have townhomes in there. Townhomes might be difficult to find in the very limited area that you have mapped out.

I was thinking the same -- Riata.

Riata is nice, but it's isolated. There are several complexes off Jollyville Rd which are within walking distance to the Arboretum itself if you care about that. Your best bet is to use an apartment locator service - they are free. Or of you want to do some searches, use the zip code 78759. Be wary of some apartments in the 78758 zip code that say they are Arboretum area because they are not only NOT in the Arboretum area, but they are in a bit shadier area of town.

There are some townhome like apts in the Post Mesa complex off of Mesa and 2222. It's a little closer into town than the Arboretum area. There are a lot of apts off of Far West and Mopac but it's mostly university students.

Take a look at Marquis at Treetops, 5217 Old Spicewoods Springs road. My wife and I lived there 2 years, great location, schools, apartments and mangement. Good pool and very near bull creek. It's a little more expensive than average but families like to rent there while house hunting in the area and/or because of the schools, i.e., Anderson High School. Best apartments in the area IMO. Good luck.
