About Gloria Moore
Gloria Gene Moore moved to Austin in 1984 to become Director of Tourism for the Austin Covention & Visitors Bureau. She’s been in love with Austin ever since. Life’s unexpected zigzags provided her with three unexpected adventures into cancerland. These experiences led her to volunteer work as cancer support guide and advocate which led to a second masters degree at Austin’s Seminary of the Southwest where she became a chaplain. Gloria served on Mexic-Arte Museums board for 13 years and coordinated and facilitated Austin’s MD Anderson Community Support Group for 5 years. She currently works part time as a chaplain in an assisted living center and as a celebrant and officiant for memorial services, funerals, weddings, dedications, house blessings or anything anyone wants to ritualize or make special. She enjoys art, traveling, reading, cooking and swimming in Deep Eddy Pool and Barton Springs. She’s crazy about her dog Kiki and her beloved husband Ritchie Mintz, a gifted bodyworker and healer who Gloria thinks is the world’s best Rolfer. Ritchie conducts his Rolfing practice next door to this apartment building, which is owned by Gloria’s family. For more info see Ritchie Mintz.com. Ritchie is also a musician and author who plays a fantastic guitar, banjo and everything with strings except the violin.,
Gloria Moore purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Gloria Moore chose Westwood Park
This unique one of a kind vintage 1973 apartment located on a private, quiet cul de sac, while totally remodeled, remains a throw back to the old glory days of Austin before the skyscrapers and traffic invaded. Staying here in our wooded canyon. is like staying miles out of town in the Texas Hill Country yet is only minutes from all the tourist attractions and music of the inner city and has convenient access to all of Austin. Head twenty minutes west and you will find yourself at Lake Travis.
What makes this Apartment unique
This apartment has rare front door parking & plenty of it! It also has a beautiful Hill Country canyon view from the backyard. It backs up to Barton Springs Nursery, which is like a private garden. Its walking distance to local bars & restaurants. Its private, quiet and feels like you are staying in the country while you are only at most ten minutes from the State Capitol complex and all the nightlife, music and shopping to be found on South Congress. You are three miles from taking a dip in Barton Springs or a leisurely stroll around the 12 mile Barton Springs Greenbelt. If you are more adventurous, you can hike in the greenbelt creek area just a few feet from your back door through the greenbelt that this apartment abuts.

Stay at basement apartment in Austin TX
The apartment was in a nice location of town and reasonably priced. The owner Gloria was very responsive to all our inquiries and made every effort to meet our needs. The apartment was a basement apartment and clean. However, it was very dark and we like more light and sunshine in the house. There were windows but it was north/south facing I think so sunlight didn't get in much. The kitchen was very small and fixtures, oven, microwave were old. They were functional but prefer newer.
Pretty run down ,kitchen grease on vent hood, balls of dust and hair between couch and front wall
Paint missing off bathroom floor
One person's shabby is anothers' chic. We apologize for the grease and lack of cranny cleaning. That has been corrected and should've been spotted by our property manager. This morning we installed a new system wide WIFI that fixed the spotty coverage you complained about. Deep cleaners are busy in the apartment right now doing a spring cleaning in preparation for new floors and other upgrades. We are sorry you were unhappy here. We do hope you return to the more modern and more expensive short term rentals on this street as you did seem to value the prime location these rentals offer. Even with our shortcomings, which we are working on, we believe it offers the best value and view of any short term rental on our area.
Charming Comfort and Perfect Getaway!
This rental is awesome and worked out wonderfully for our stay in Austin during ACL weekend. Gloria is very helpful and accommodating and goes above and beyond to make the stay comfortable since we were not familiar with the area. The apartment is very spacious and has a lot to offer. I recommend this rental for any length of stay and wish we could've stayed longer!
Thanks Audrey. We enjoyed having you. Come back & stay again. Hope you enjoyed seeing the deer in the backyard. They seem to be there every morning now.
Live music capital of the world filled with art, good food, wonderful people and an unparalleled lifestyle, nestled in one of the most beautiful locations in America. We're located just three miles from the famed Zilker Park, headquarters for the Austin City Limits Music Festival and home of Barton Springs, and minutes from downtown Austin's museum, the University of Texas, SoCo and more. Great location for exploring a great city!
A car is preferred however we are about half a mile walk to Capitol Metro Route #30, which goes to downtown Austin, South Congress and connects to Bus 100, which serves the airport. (Ck Capitol Metro website for more info)
