Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8 In The Heart Of Austin

Enjoy an old Austin feel in downtown Austin's backyard. Immaculate home near just about everything Austin has to offer - SXSW, ACL, Formula 1 and COTA shuttle, Austin Film Festival, downtown district, Hike and Bike trail around Lady Bird Lake, Barton Springs, cool coffee houses, the flagship Whole Foods, eclectic shops, and some of Austin's finest restaurants (Clark's Oyster Bar, Jeffrey's, Winflo Osteria, and Caffe Medici, just for starters). In the middle of it all, yet on a quiet street in the charming, hip and historic old Austin neighborhood of Clarksville.

The house features high ceilings, plenty of natural light, hardwood floors, a full open kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, two living rooms (both with flat screen TVs and one with a gas fireplace), two dining areas, a two car garage for super convenient parking (we’ll give you a garage door opener to keep in your car), a lovely back patio perfect for sipping coffee, and a utility room with a washing machine and dryer (and plenty of detergent!).

The house comfortably sleeps 8 people, with a queen bedroom downstairs, and three bedrooms upstairs - the master, with a king bed (and a big bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower), a queen bedroom, and a bedroom with two twins. The upstairs, split level living room/den has a sectional sofa that could also be used for sleeping, but it should be noted that it’s an open-plan room without a door.

We have a lot of the comforts of home - wireless internet, a whole-house stereo, blow dryers, shampoo and soaps - and, most of all, strive to keep the house uber clean and well stocked with fresh towels and bedding.

We’re very happy, whenever possible, to accommodate early check-in and late check-out, and are available for any and all questions before and during your stay, both by phone and via email.

Please note: The number of guests in your booking party cannot be exceeded without written permission from the owner. At no time can there be more than 8 people on the property without written permission. No events, receptions or gatherings are allowed.

About Molly

I’m an almost Austin native (my family moved to Austin when I was six), and have enjoyed the city as a kid, a college student, a small business owner, and a mom.

I’ve lived out of the country for six years - time that I loved - but also time that gave me a new-found appreciation for this great town.

I have family living around the US and have enjoyed being a Homeaway guest over the last few years. I’ve made some wonderful friendships and now feel fortunate to have several “home away from homes” around the country.

I look forward to creating relationships and that feeling of home for our guests in Clarksville, in my own backyard.

Molly purchased this house in 2013

Lovely vacation home - lovely host.

  • 5 of 5
This vacation rental was a wonderful home-base for several out-of-town guests attending our Austin wedding. The property was clean, comfortable, and well stocked with linens/toiletries/basic kitchen supplies. Molly was a kind and attentive host, and our security deposit was returned quickly. We will keep this property in mind for our next trip to Austin!

Great Place, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic house, beautifully appointed, clean & comfortable, felt just like home. Central location provides easy access to everything you'd want to do, yet it's tucked away in a funky little neighborhood that is classic Austin. And Molly could not have been nicer or more accommodating, it seemed we were renting with friends. Highly recommend this place!

We will be back! Perfect house, perfect location, perfect hostess!

  • 5 of 5
We had a girls reunion (first time we had seen each other in 25 years) at the house and I can't imagine a better rental! The house itself was gorgeous, beds were super comfy, tons of space and everything was fully stocked. The house is just off 6th street - we walked each day to the "bar" area of 6th street without a problem and only once took a cab back (but it was so close that it was nice and cheap). Molly was a fantastic hostess. My friends were very impressed with this "find" and we decided that we will for sure use it as our "go to" location from here on out for future visits. Thank you Molly!

Amazing house! Molly is an excellent host! :)

  • 5 of 5
Excellent property! The house was very clean and so beautiful. It is incredibly spacious and we did not have any problems entertaining guests there. The yard was well-maintained and an overall pleasant area to hang out. We really have only the most positive things to say about the house! Even the neighbors were so friendly. It was so conveniently located to pretty much anywhere - we walked to brunch in the morning and were able to visit most notable Austin locations within a 10 minute drive. Molly was so accommodating and even went out of her way to stock the fridge before our arrival. She also gave us a very helpful list of local restaurants, grocery stores, etc that were all excellent recommendations. We felt right at home!
