Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 12

Nestled in the woods that run along the Colorado River yet only minutes from downtown Austin, this cottage is reminiscent of the craftsman houses that were originally built in this historic area of the city known as Clarksville. The richness of the polished hardwood floors highlight the natural light that pours in from the many windows that enhance the open, clean line design of both the external and internal architecture. And even though the house comes complete with a sustainable vegetable garden and a chicken coop, both so re-mindful of this community’s days of old, it is also fully equipped with modern day amenities.

This area is so rich in history. Post emancipation, Clarksville was established as a community to reunite families and all who convened were encouraged to live freely. The same is true today. This house is located in a highly coveted location that affords you the opportunity to truly discover Austin.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome

Thank you so much for everything that you did for us during our stay at your lovely home. The house is very comfortable and has everything you could possibly want, with lots of extra, thoughtful details.. The bedding was much more comfortable than we could have expected and the cost was so reasonable. We stayed with our grandchildren and it was great to have all the extra space over an hotel room. Michael has made sure that you feel right at home and is most helpful with any questions. Thanks again for your hospitality, we hope we can stay again soon.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 14 days in March as a homebase for my daughter's wedding. I never rented a house before, and was a little nervous about what to expect. Mike was wonderful! He calmed my fears, and couldn't of been more accommodating! Having the house for entertaining and preparing for the actual wedding day was exactly what I wanted. My entire family(immediate and extended) had nothing but high praise for our living arrangements, including the chickens and ducks, fresh vegetables, and the great fire pit. Thank you Mike for an unique Austin experience, I couldn't of been happier!

Cozy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Michael was very welcoming and helpful. The house was very cozy and unique. Loved his backyard with all the ducks and chickens. We had free fresh eggs each morning and it was delicious. It was a cool man's man cave. The location was also very convenient to all the activities we wanted to do. Wouldn't mind coming back to stay again!

Our first impression was "eclectic"!

  • 4 of 5

The listing description was accurate, as were the amenities described. The property wasn't as clutter-free and clean as I would have liked it- but maybe that's because I'm a neat freak! We loved Mike (the owner) and Louis (the gardner)- they were very personable! There were no sheets or pillowcases on two of the beds when we arrived- but I called Mike and he said (after apologizing) he'd be happy to come over and take care of it. (That wasn't necessary!) Additionally we ran out of coffee (egads!), paper towels and bath soap. Again, Mike was wonderfully responsive- and we had them that afternoon! We loved having fresh eggs in the morning, and our youngest son loved the chickens and ducks! (The garden was amazing!) We would have loved spending more time at the backyard firepit- but our trip was centered around visiting family in the hospital. Location was great for us- because it was just a few streets down from family members. Mike did ask if there was anything he could do to make up for some of the issues we had encountered during our stay- and we told him it wasn't necessary. I would definitely recommend the property as I think the issues we encountered aren't the norm AND you can't beat having a homeowner go out of their way to make things right!!

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We first showed up on Thursday and we had a blast as soon as we walked in. We were drawn towards the house because of all of the cool trinkets, chickens, firepit among other things. Michael was a great host. We had called him on Saturday to see if we could have some friends over for a fire and he obliged. He even came over to hang out for a while. We also had asked him to pick us up in his party bus downtown. He then took us around to see all the mansion on the river and was a great tour guide.

We ate chicken and duck eggs every morning. How could it get any better? There is a coop on site with a wonderful garden and a chicken run.

If we come back to Austin we would definitely rent this place again.

Thank you Michael for all of your help.
