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

Beautiful well kept home in the heart of down town Austin, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this fabulous home for 5 days for my daughters wedding. It was the perfect spot and close proximity to all the different things we attended for the wedding and close to the hotels where other family members were staying. It's a very large and comfortable home with plenty of space to move around and not be on top of one another. The beds were great and very comfortable with nice linens and towels too. The master suite is very large and was great space for when we were all getting ready for the wedding. Molly was the best hostess as she had everything readily available for us on our arrival (coffee, creamer, sugar, honey, wine, shampoo, conditioner, Topo Chico, soap, laundry soap, toilet paper, paper towels and many other staple items in the pantry) and was there readily available if we needed anything. There is a large two car garage which is very handy when it's raining. Both our large truck and Suburban fit with room to spare. There are two separate living areas to spread out for large families and the back yard is awesome! Just a short walk away is a great little Italian restaurant as well as several others close by. My husband rode his bike around the areas trails and parks and loved it! Whole Foods and Starbucks are a couple of blocks which was very handy. I would highly recommend this home for your family! We'll be back for family gatherings I'm sure. Thanks again Molly for everything!!
