Great location and price.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location slightly off the beaten path, but close enough to restaurants, hiking, the river, and downtown activities. The room, kitchenette, and bathroom were clean, comfortable, and modern with everything we needed for our five day stay. David and Kerry were very friendly and they provided great suggestions for activities in the area. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a cozy retreat in a fun town.

Perfectly Situated

  • 4 of 5

This little studio was situated perfectly in central Austin. It was within walking distance of downtown and surrounded by all kinds of small cafes and businesses. It was also close to MoPac and not a far drive from I35 either so driving to other sites and recreation areas was pretty simple. The studio is quiet and comfortable and met almost every need. The electric stove worked for everything that we needed and the extension to the counter gave us all the space that we required for food preparation. The one negative was that it only has a small refrigerator which made it difficult for us to buy and keep the groceries we require.

Comfortable, quiet, and clean

  • 5 of 5

This is my third stay and it has always been comfortable and relaxing. A great location, a pleasant walk to downtown, but far enough away from the bustle.

Exceeded expectations. Low price for location and surprisingly private.

  • 5 of 5

We are from Austin so we certainly appreciated the location and the price and the large yard and the privacy. We were here on semi-business and needed to be in this sweet spot location but didn't want to pay tourist prices ... and we did not have to. Far far superior to the room we had at the Holiday Inn on Townlake the night before.

Snug. Intimate. Location Location Location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for solo sojourn or duo with high capacity for intimate living. Has nearly everything you'll need except inside 2 top table. (The counter extension does not accommodate 2 chairs comfortably). The patio does have table with 2 rocking chairs which we used when weather permitted. Making breakfast everyday was easy- there's a hot plate, toaster, French press, hot water kettle, mini fridge. Owners used every square inch for living space- bonus is the spacious shower. Thankful for the oil space heater- never needed the AC. Ventilation can be tricky as there is no fan in the bath. Just open windows! A cute neighborhood across the street from a school playground- delightful sounds of kids playing, otherwise quiet. For the price, a good value. And it's in Austin, walking to 24 Diner, Mean-Eyed Cat, and Whole Foods a breeze.

About Kerry

I have lived in Austin for over 30 years. I came here from Seattle, Washington to dance with a modern dance company. I love the friendly vibe of the residents, the spirit of creativity in arts and business and the heart of the people. I've had my own company working for clients like Dell, Microsoft, and Austin Venture start-ups. I've helped them implement complex change initiatives and improve management.

We are active in non-profits and bettering the lives of people in Austin and around the world.

We are wonderful hosts who are ready to make your stay relaxing and memorable. We are available 24/7 and live on-site in the larger home if anything is needed.

Kerry purchased this bungalow in 1989

Why Kerry chose Clarksville

You have a private patio, backyard surrounded by greenery and birdsongs. The studio itself is relaxing and fully appointed.

You do not need a car. You can walk to ACL, SXSW food, coffee, music, hiking, swimming and downtown.

This neighborhood is super safe and your studio was once a music studio so it has extra security features.

What makes this bungalow unique

This home and studio are absolute charmers. Situated in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Austin, we find our neighbors to be super friendly and willing to help you out with suggestions or directions AND the number of shops and restaurants within a mile could satisfy almost every need!

Affordable, peaceful and newly renovated.
