Austin House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

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:
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets considered

OUR FIRST IMPRESSION WAS "ECLECTIC"!

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.

COOL PLACE WITH A LOT OF CHARACTER

  • 5 of 5
Great place to stay for a weekend in Austin with buddies. Back patio with tv and PA setup is awesome, record collection is great and there's plenty of refrigeration for beer and all the free eggs and condiments you could ever want!

The owner of the place, "Stix" is a first class host and went out of his way to make us feel welcome!

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This house is well-stocked and ideally situated. No more than a $15 cab ride to anything worth doing, the house served as a perfect home base for our bachelor weekend. Mike was super hospitable and accessible throughout the stay.

The property was clean, advertised accordingly, and I would definitely stay again.

GOOD TIME

  • 5 of 5
Micheal sure does know how to treat his guest. He leaves you full access to the house. His home is only a 15 dollar cab ride to 6th street. He can get you a hook up to some good places in town with no worries it was a great place to spend my bachelor party I would recommend someone else do it as well!

The house was great! We cooked our own meals even gathered eggs each morning, enjoyed the record collection and admired the garden. Even got a ride on the "Party Bus" parked in the front yard down to the "Third Base Sports Bar". Owner was great and very accommodating, Highly recommend a stay...
