GREAT HOUSE - PRIMO DOWNTOWN LOCATION. WALKING DISTANCE TO 6TH ST - SXSW - ACL

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~. 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.

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!

Bachelorette Party of 6--Phenomenal Choice

  • 5 of 5
What can I say about this place. Truly amazing. There wasn't a moment in the three nights we stayed that everyone in the party didn't say "wow, this place is fantastic, I'm so glad we're here". Booked the place about a month in advance and shared the listing with the rest of the girls, we made it a surprise for the bride. The group was pumped to read about the amenities, the location and layout of the house.

When we arrived, the house was clean, very well maintained. If I had to pick my favorite part, it was the outdoor area. Being from Chicago, it was a true joy to be able to sit outside on the patio and have a drink. Everything felt very modern and updated, which suited everyone's taste.

Bob was fantastic to work with, start to finish. Immediately after I submitted interest in the place, I got an email to chat with him on the phone, which was great. I'm in sales and phone calls are a great way to get to know someone. Bob was great to work with, excited to have us come stay in the house and share his place in Austin. And, he was very open to communication while we stayed there as well, offering up a phone call if we needed anything. Really great customer service, felt like we were taken care of on vacation, he was like our own little concierge.

I would absolutely recommend this property in the very highest regard. Not only was the bride in complete shock with how nice the place was, but she kept thanking us the entire time.

We ate twice at the Tacos N Tequila place, once for dinner and once for brunch, it's a 5min walk away. We ordered take-out tacos on Thursday night when we arrived, and that was the best decision we've ever made. We ordered one of each of the tacos and lots of guac and queso, highly recommended. Then, hungover on Saturday morning, we stumbled in for brunch, which was probably the best buffet brunch I've seen, with dessert, huevos rancheros, great guac, just fantastic.

This is definitely your place if you want to stay close to the city, but far enough away for it to be quiet and to have your own space!!!

SXSW 2014

  • 4 of 5
Stayed here for 8 nights during the music portion for SXSW. The house was clean, well stocked with amenities, and within 25 minutes walking distance to all 6th St festivities. Plenty of room for our party of 4. It was away from all the craziness of downtown in a peaceful and safe neighborhood. We wished it was just a little closer to downtown, but that would probably come at the cost of all the noise. Owner was extremely easy to deal with and very accommodating. Definitely would deal with him again.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Beating the Longhorns was only PART of a great weekend!! We were so fortunate to have chosen the house....my wife graduated University of Texas and we've enjoyed the west end of 6th Street for years but always stayed downtown. Everything about this house is exactly the way it's promised. Quiet street right off 6th...close to everything on the west side and only minutes from downtown. Super close to campus. As far as the house, patio's were wonderful, TV room was awesome for college football, adjacent den could be closed off from the TV room was great! Both bedrooms were better than advertised. The best way to sum up this rental is that we'll be repeat customers! Period! Thanks to the owners for a wonderful Austin experience!!

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.
