Property description

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, 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, with 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.


Please note: The number of guests in your booking party cannot be exceeded without written permission from the owner. At no time can there be more than 8 people on the property without written permission. No events, receptions or gatherings are allowed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.
