BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFUL DOWNTOWN RETREAT IN TRENDY OLD AUSTIN NEIGHBORHOOD

Clarksville, Austin, TX, USA
  • House3000 sqft
  • Bedrooms4
  • Sleeps8
  • Bathrooms3
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay2 - 3 nights

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.

                                                          Arturo E.

                                                          The property is superb. Centric, clean, well-equipped, all services, close to major attractions, etc. We enjoyed every inch of of it. Service from Molly (owners) is fantastic.

                                                          Arturo! You guys were amazing, gracious guests, and we were so honored to have you stay over the holiday.

                                                          Great house for our families

                                                          Dan H.

                                                          We stayed three great nights with two families. Tons of space and out girls loved the loft hangout. Close to everything either walkable or a short Lyft ride. The owner was fabulous and provided so much great info on the area. Looking forward to staying again soon.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thanks so much for your kind words, Dan - we absolutely loved hosting you! Thanks so, so much for booking with us (and for being so tall!)!

                                                          The house was exceptional! It was well-stocked even with some extras like a welcoming bottle of wine

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          It was an absolute pleasure hosting you and your family - I just wish so much I'd been able to say hello to the precious little ones in your group! We so appreciate you guys booking with us - and being the most wonderful guests!

                                                          Beautiful, comfortable & spacious home on quiet residential street with wonderful owner!

                                                          Rosanne P.

                                                          After some research on VRBO, we discovered this property and quickly settled on it as our family's choice. Our party of 8 all arrived from different states at various times for a family wedding in Austin. With 3 generations and different accommodation needs, this home suited us perfectly. Queen or King-sized beds in three of the bedrooms, plus two twins in the fourth bedroom was perfect for us. We loved the various seating areas throughout the home, where we each could find a separate quiet space to escape to when needed. The separate living room or den on the 2nd floor with the window seat was a favourite for our group, with the window seat being my personal favourite as a reading or napping nook. The only thing missing was more time to relax in the home since we were constantly on the go.

                                                          Molly was consistently communicative with me and helpful throughout the process, from decision to payment to arrival to checkout. She gave us assurances all along the way by providing phone numbers, area highlights, access codes, etc... everything we needed to feel comfortable that when we arrived at our destination, there would be no unwanted surprises. A wonderful hostess to work with! There were plenty of blankets, pillows, good thick towels (a must), toiletries, and complimentary beverages in the refrigerator, such a nice touch to welcome our group. I was tasked with finding the perfect place for our family, and everyone was happy, comfortable and grateful that this home was available to us. Couldn't have been happier with the space and the process.

                                                          Thanks so much Molly for making it easy for me to make a group of 8 happy & comfortable!

                                                          Oh Rosanne - I'm going to miss not being in touch and looking forward to your stay! It was such a pleasure hosting you and your family, and I just wish you could've stayed a little bit longer! All our warmest wishes to you all, and thanks so very much for your kind words.

                                                          Absolutely outstanding all around

                                                          Sam S.Seattle, WA

                                                          From the thoughtful and meticulous pre-arrangements that Molly provided to make arrival as smooth as possible, to the effortless and flexible checkout, our stay at this beautiful home in a residential area near downtown Austin was fabulous, comfortable and memorable.

                                                          The home is beautifully maintained, well appointed, spacious (8 of us were literally floating around in it), well stocked with a wide array of amenities, large comfortable rooms and bathrooms, a mezzanine floor with a cozy window seat with a nice view of fall in the front garden, a nice shaded wooded backyard with chirping birds, and delightful art work all around the house.

                                                          As nicely appointed as the house is, even better was how hospitable, friendly and welcoming our host, Molly was, going out of her way to make us feel at home and well taken care of.

                                                          You guys were such a tremendous pleasure to host, Sam. I wish so much we'd been able to say hello in person - and I wish we'd been able to say thank you in person! You guys are the most lovely, lovely family, and we wish you all the very, very best!

                                                          Will stay here agin for sure!
