Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This beautifully furnished 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath (sleeps 6 adults maximum) is in the eclectic Clarksville neighborhood of Austin. It is one block off West 6th Street within walking distance to most SXSW venues and AC~L~. Lower rates for 4 night stays or more, however higher rates will apply during SXSW and ACL. See the rates section on our listing. You have the best of both worlds here, a quiet neighborhood with easy access to everything Austin has to offer. Z-Tejas, Winflo, Clark's Oyster Bar, Counter Cafe, 24 Diner, and Jeffries (perhaps Austin's best), are some of the many restaurants within walking distance. Cafe Medici and Sweetish Hill Bakery are great choices for your morning coffee and pastry. The landmark Whole Foods Market (their first store) is 1/2 mile from the front door, and Nau's Drugstore is even closer (with a soda fountain). For runners and cyclists, Shoal Creek hike and bike trail is a few blocks Northeast, and Zilker Park is just a few blocks South.

The house features include modern eat-in kitchen (with flat-screen TV), living room, and den with 55 inch flat screen and American Leather sectional downstairs; and two master suites (both with king beds) upstairs, both with flat-screen TVs. We have just put in granite counter tops in the kitchen and both bathrooms upstairs. A queen size Aerobed and a large sectional sofa offer additional sleeping options. Enjoy eating and entertaining outside on our private patio.

It is an owner-occupied house much of the year so it is very well furnished and decorated. Call Bob or Lisa with any questions.

About Bob

Bob and Lisa are from Norfolk, Virginia. We own businesses in both Virginia and in Austin, and decided to move to Austin to become more active in our business here.

Bob purchased this house in 2012

Why Bob chose Austin

Clarksville is the best place to live (and vacation) in Austin. It is so centrally located. We had been looking at houses in this neighborhood for quite some time, and finally we lucked out when this house came on the market.

Great Austin Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This charming home is in a great location for exploring Austin! Everything was comfortable, clean and convenient. The house is well-equipped and furnished, bright and cheery, and decorated with lots of interesting artwork. Even on an unseasonably cold weekend, we felt quite cozy. The owner was very hospitable and made all the arrangements easy.

Perfect Location to Downtown

  • 5 of 5
This turned out to be a perfect fit for us. It was close to 6th so within easy walking distance to any of the wonderful shops and restaurants in the area. We would definitely recommend the house as well as stay again on our next trip to Austin. The owners are very easy to work with and did a fabulous job of making it an easy trip.

Excellent home for business travelers!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing house! We arrived really late (past midnight) but thanks to the clear directions, it was a breeze to locate and enter the property. As we stepped in, the house has been cooled down to just the right temperature. The property came equipped with Nest, the owner has set things up before we arrived (thank you!). A few minutes into checking out the house, you'll soon realize that the owner has put a lot of thought into the decor, and making things very comfortable for those who are staying there. From the choice of furniture, colors to posters - I call it Texan Hip. In any case, we noticed there's a TV in almost every room in the house. There were two bikes for us to use. The owner has also offered us to take a few sips from the liquor bar.

Utensils, bottles of water, snacks are all available as well. We also appreciated the fine little touches, from the branded shampoo (Aveda) to iPod/iPhone speakers. We flew in from Asia to attend a series of meetings. One of the things we looked forward to at the end of the day was to just head back and enjoy the comfort of home.

Thanks for making this such a wonderful stay.

Perfect home, perfect Austin location

  • 5 of 5
I couldn't ask for a better weekend getaway with a group of some of my best girl friends in downtown Austin. From start to finish, Bob provided amazing customer service and was very helpful with suggestions for our group of 6 ladies that were all from out of town.

Upon arrival, I loved the look and feel of the house instantly – it was very unique and very Austin. It was also nice how modern and updated the house was, and we had the perfect weather to enjoy the outdoor patio with our evening happy hours at the house. We also really enjoyed having a keyless entry system with a code so we didn’t have to worry about losing keys while we were there.

With all the girls coming in from out of town, the location could not have been better and was very convenient to anywhere we wanted to go... 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 every day 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. Other activities included lunch & shopping along South Congress Street (30 minute walk), a picnic in Zilker Park (15-20 minute walk), and shopping at the 2nd Street District downtown (10-15 minute walk).

Thanks Bob for everything you did to make the process as easy as possible. Our group is already talking about the next trip back!

A taste of urban living in a quiet, old neighborhood. Great evening walks to many fantastic restaurants, including Z-Tejas, Cafe Josie, Jeffrey's, Winflo, Clark's Oyster Bar, Sweetish Hill Bakery, and too many others to list!! Zilker Park and the Shoal Creek hike and bike trail are only a few blocks away. Shops and art galleries abound. The land mark original Whole Foods Market is 1/2 mile away.
