BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFUL DOWNTOWN RETREAT IN TRENDY OLD AUSTIN NEIGHBORHOOD

Sleeps8
Bedrooms 4
Bathrooms3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights

Overview

About the property

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 master bathroom with a big tub and walk-in shower), a queen bedroom, and a bedroom with two twin beds. The upstairs, split level living room/den has a sectional sofa and throw blankets for lounging and TV watching.

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

Lovely home in great location

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out perfectly for our family, of six, who were in town for our son's wedding. The layout was great, with lots of common areas, and, the bedrooms were nicely sized-especially the master-and private. The master bath and closet were huge and it was nice to relax in the chaise lounge that was in the bathroom. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen and the treats Molly had left us. The house is in a quirky neighborhood which has lots of cute restaurants nearby. We easily walked to downtown and South Congress is a short drive away as is the interstate to the airport. Molly was very responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommend!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, immaculate spacious property. The neighborhood is great, lots to walk to. Our host Molly gave us many recommendations for places to go. We could have spent way more time in Austin to fit it all in.

Perfect Home & perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home over Christmas and it exceeded our expectations. It was perfectly cozy and had everything we needed to make it a wonderful Christmas! We cooked a lot and whatever was missing, Molly made sure that the house was equipped and ready for us. She gave thorough instructions and not to mention an amazing list of places to eat, drink and visit. The location to downtown and grocery stores couldn't have been easier. We had a small problem with the AC unit but as soon as I told Molly, she was there. We had gone out for the day and by the time we got back home, it was fixed. From the loft, to the kitchen and backyard- it was an extremely comfortable stay.The house was spotless and it felt just like home. Thanks so much for helping make our 2016 Christmas even more memorable!

Owner's Response: We just loved hosting your family over the holidays - and thanks so very much for being so gracious about the AC. There's never a good time to have it conk out, but who would've thought it would even be necessary over Christmas! Only in Texas...!!! We wish you guys all the very best for 2017, and a million thanks for booking with us.
