SXSW, ACL, FORMULA 1, BEAUTIFUL DOWNTOWN AUSTIN RETREAT.

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.

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

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!

Perfect girl's weekend in downtown Austin!

I couldn't ask for a better weekend getaway with all my best friends in downtown Austin. From start to finish, Molly provided amazing customer service, was very helpful with suggestions, and really went out of her way to make sure we had a fabulous weekend. Our group consisted of 10 ladies and I was also amazed at how spacious and well-stocked it was - I think there must have been 30+ towels in the house that we used during our stay :) In addition, the pictures don't even do the house justice. We had 6 girls getting ready in the master bathroom and it felt like we could have had all 10 of us in there. We also used the kitchen to cook in for a few dinners and breakfasts and the house had everything we would possibly need.

With all the girls coming in from out of town, the location could not have been better and was so convenient to anywhere we wanted to go (which came in handy with only one car!) ... It was a 10 minute walk to Town Lake where we did a 4+ mile loop around the lake every morning. We also walked to the flagship Whole Foods everyday to pick up groceries and miscellaneous items (a must when staying here). There are a bunch of fun little restaurants and bars that are so convenient to walk to - one restaurant (Winflo) that was literally at the end of the street.

I can't wait to try to get another group to go back! Thanks Molly for everything you did to make the process as easy as possible!!

Owner's Response: Thank YOU, Jessica! You couldn't have been more gracious and wonderful - and you left the house absolutely immaculate. You were very naughty, though.... I wish you'd been having a coffee on the back patio instead of doing my job!!! A million thanks. And I hope so much we might see you again some time - soon!

Perfect home, perfect Austin location!

  • 5 of 5
This property was beautifully kept, well-stocked, and in perfect condition. Molly was a joy to work with, and so responsive. Her mom checked us in and was just lovely. We had extended family all traveling together. There were 4 bedrooms and 3 baths and it all looked even prettier than the photos on HomeAway. We were a block off of 6th street, and could walk to all of the great Austin 6th street spots. I ran most days and the neighborhood was safe and interesting. I would totally stay there again, and would recommend to anyone.

This was our first time to rent a home for vacation, but won't be our last!

Several friends stayed here for a girls reunion. It was the perfect house! We sat on the back patio for coffee in the mornings and walked to our dinners at night. Molly gave us a great list of places to eat and things to do. It is a beautiful home-new, clean and very accommodating! I would love to stay here again the next time in Austin!
