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.

Perfect home for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great Austin experience for a girls weekend! The house is in an awesome location and we walked to brunches and while foods in super close proximity. Owner was very easy to get ahold of and readily available/willing to answer all questions. We felt comfortable and slept well in the cozy beds!

Fantastic home base during SXSW

  • 5 of 5

My colleague and I completely enjoyed staying at the house during a very busy SXSW. The two bedrooms with en suites were perfect for sharing. We used the bikes to get to heart of downtown in less than 10 minutes. The home had everything we needed and close proximity to Whole Foods and great restaurants (Winflo and Clark's) was added bonus. Thanks Bob for making our first time in Austin so positive. If we decide to attend the conference again we'll definitely be back!

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.

Car: recommended

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.
