About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This beautifully furnished 2 king bedroom, 2.5 bath house (sleeps 6 adults maximum) is in the eclectic Clarksville neighborhood of Austin. It is one block off West 6th Street and within walking distance to most SXSW venues and ACL. RATES ARE HIGHER DURING THESE EVENTS. You have the best of both worlds here, a quiet neighborhood with easy access to everything Austin has to offer. We are within walking distance of many of Austin's top restaurants. The landmark Whole Foods Market (their first store) is 1/2 mile from our front door. For runners and cyclists, Shoal Creek hike and bike trail is a few blocks Northeast, and Zilker Park is just a few blocks South.

The house features include modern eat-in kitchen (with flat-screen TV), living room, and den with state of the art 4K UltraHD 55 inch flat screen and American Leather sectional downstairs; and two master suites (both with king beds) upstairs, both with flat-screen TVs. We have just put in granite counter tops in the kitchen and both bathrooms upstairs. A queen size Aerobed and a large sectional sofa offer additional sleeping options. Enjoy eating and entertaining outside on our private patio.

It is an owner-occupied house much of the year so it is very well furnished and decorated. Call Bob or Lisa with any questions.

About Bob

Bob and Lisa are from Norfolk, Virginia. We own businesses in both Virginia and in Austin, and decided to move to Austin to become more active in our business here.

Bob purchased this house in 2012

Why Bob chose Austin

Clarksville is the best place to live (and vacation) in Austin. It is so centrally located. We had been looking at houses in this neighborhood for quite some time, and finally we lucked out when this house came on the market.

A taste of urban living in a quiet, classic Old Austin neighborhood.

Perfect for Austin!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at Bob & Lisa's house, it was perfect! There were 2 couples and we each had our own master suite. The house was beautiful, very clean and in a great little neighborhood. We easily walked back and forth to Zilker Park as well as many different restaurants & shops. They had bikes that we also used to cruise around town. We would absolutely recommend this property to any of our friends and family & plan on returning to the house in the future.

Comfortable and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Bob's house and were so happy. Great location in a quiet neighborhood but only minutes away by foot to coffee shops, grocery stores and local parks. Bob was available for any questions and this will be our choice for our next visit to Austin.

I could not have had a better experience

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I pulled up to the house, I fell in love with the neighborhood. It was so quiet, clean and beautiful. Then I entered the house and never for a minute considered it to be a rental house. I could tell it was someone's home and they had put so much care into everything from the design to the amenities. It was spotless. The kitchen was filled with anything you could need. Top quality furniture, appliances, kitchen utensils, pots and pans, linens, bath accessories throughout. I wish I had more time to have used the house in order to enjoy everything it had to offer. It had many areas to sit and enjoy yourself. A comfy living room and den and outdoor areas. I used Fasten car service and they were there in 3 minutes every time. Bob could not have been nicer and was so helpful and accommodating. He was truly grateful to have me renting his home. I felt grateful to have found it. I went during SXSW and thought I was going to rent a house in order to avoid the jacked up prices at the hotels, but I received way more than a bargain. I received the warmth of a beautiful home that was perfect in every way. I will never consider any other place to stay in Austin. It was quite the find.

Overall, it could not have been nicer. It would have been really great if we would have had guests.

  • 5 of 5

My overall experience was simply outstanding. I was most impressed with the cleanliness of everything & it felt special like home where not thousands of others had just visited. I only wished we had been able to have others over to enjoy some of the features like common rooms & porches; it was so comfortable. Loved the decorating & art. I hope to stay there again!!

Great experience and a great house!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for one month while I stayed in Austin for work. The owner couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. He upgraded the internet for me as I was working and living in the space for a month and purchased a scanner/copier/printer for my use as well. The location of the house is superb. The house itself was very comfortable and inviting, it felt like home right from the gecko. I would definitely recommend this rental, and will also be back myself for another great rental experience!
