Overview

Clarksville House Rental Photos and Description

Lovely four bedroom, three bathroom home a stones throw from downtown Austin

Enjoy an old Austin feel in downtown Austin's backyard. Immaculate home near just about everything Austin has to offer - SXSW, ACL, Formula 1 and COTA shuttle, Austin Film Festival, downtown district, Hike and Bike trail around Lady Bird Lake, Barton Springs, cool coffee houses, the flagship Whole Foods, eclectic shops, and some of Austin's finest restaurants (Clark's Oyster Bar, Jeffrey's, Winflo Osteria, Nightcap and Caffe Medici, just for starters). In the middle of it all, yet on a quiet street in the charming, hip and historic old Austin neighborhood of Clarksville.

The house features high ceilings, plenty of natural light, hardwood floors, a full open kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, two living rooms (both with flat screen TVs and one with a gas fireplace), two dining areas, a two car garage for super convenient parking (we’ll give you a garage door opener to keep in your car), a lovely back patio perfect for sipping coffee, and a utility room with a washing machine and dryer (and plenty of detergent!).

The house comfortably sleeps 8 people; a queen bedroom downstairs, and three bedrooms upstairs - the master, with a king bed (and a big bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower), a queen bedroom, and a bedroom with two twins. The upstairs, split level living room/den has a sectional sofa that could also be used for sleeping, but it should be noted that it’s an open-plan room without a door.

We have a lot of the comforts of home - wireless internet, a whole-house stereo, blow dryers, shampoo and soaps - and, most of all, strive to keep the house uber clean and well stocked with fresh towels and bedding.

We’re very happy, whenever possible, to accommodate early check-in and late check-out, and are available for any and all questions before and during your stay, both by phone and via email.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT INFORMATION

We are committed to helping our guests avoid potential scams, which are, unfortunately, all too prevalent. No vacation rental website - Homeaway, VRBO, Vacationrentals.com - nor us will EVER ask you to pay via wire transfer, check or money order. If you receive an email asking you to pay via one of these methods (emails can be hijacked by fraudsters), it is a scam.

Only make payments through the official Homeaway, VRBO or Vacationrentals.com websites with a credit card.

Please also note: The City of Austin enacted a new ordinance that limits maximum occupancy for short term rentals. The number of guests in your booking party cannot exceed 8 people (with no more than 6 of those people being unrelated), and at no time can there be more than 8 people on the property. No events, receptions or gatherings are permitted.

About Molly

I’m an almost Austin native (my family moved to Austin when I was six), and have enjoyed the city as a kid, a college student, a small business owner, and a mom.

I’ve lived out of the country for six years - time that I loved - but also time that gave me a new-found appreciation for this great town.

I have family living around the US and have enjoyed being a Homeaway guest over the last few years. I’ve made some wonderful friendships and now feel fortunate to have several “home away from homes” around the country.

I look forward to creating relationships and that feeling of home for our guests in Clarksville, in my own backyard.

Molly purchased this house in 2013

Beautiful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I had never been to Austin before and had a group of 8 adults. The house fit us perfectly and the location was unbeatable. walking distance to whole foods and other restaurants and 5-10 min cabs to anywhere else downtown. Molly was incredibly responsive, even answering questions well before our trip regarding restaurants and transportation. She was very easy to work with and was flexible with our check in and out time. The house had everything you could need in the kitchen, towels, shampoo etc. I would definitely stay here again!

Far exceeded expectations! Great home for a group traveling to Austin!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so much better than I even expected, even though the pictures already looked gorgeous. It was the perfect layout for my sisters, friends and I to have a girls weekend to Austin, TX. Molly was extremely accommodating and helpful. She left great tips/instructions and recommendations for us, as well as stocked the fridge with a variety of beverages. The house itself is laid out very well and felt spacious enough to comfortably host everyone in our group. The location to downtown Austin, 6th street and Rainey was ideal. For all of the options we looked into, this was by far the best location/experience/price-point and quality. You won't be disappointed! Thanks again Molly! :)

Beyond Impressed!

  • 5 of 5

The house is GORGEOUS and we couldn't ask for a better location. The house was spotless, spacious, and well equipped which really made our stay easy as we all had to fly in. What impressed me the most though was Molly; she is so flexible, accommodating and a genuinely kind person. We were a rather large group, all flying in from out of state at different times and she helped make this coordination seamless. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer!
