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.

Enjoying the sun on the patio! 07/08/2014

VRBO Bear stayed here:


I had such a nice time staying in Bob and Lisa’s comfortable and charming vacation rental that I would recommend it to any friend or person looking for a good place to stay when visiting Austin. The location is perfect: within walking distance of restaurants, stores such as Whole Foods supermarket and the lake trail as well. It is close to downtown and at the same time located in a very quiet and nice neighborhood. Coming from the Austin airport, it was easy to find even for someone who has never been in Austin and without a GPS!

Entering the home is very convenient and easy because there is a door lock with key code: no need to schedule an appointment to get the keys and no need carry extra keys. The AC was already turned on when I arrived and the temperature was cool and welcoming. The place was clean and ready for guests, very welcoming! As nice and professional as a hotel and even better because there is a kitchen, a beautiful dining area and a huge living room.

The bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds and enough room to store clothes and other items. The bathrooms are also quite large and beautiful.

Last but not least , there is a cute patio right beside the kitchen to have a drink or even dinner outside and 2 bikes in the garage to use on the lake trail or just wander around Austin. I also had the chance to take some yoga classes very close by as there are tons of yoga studios everywhere

Car: Recommended

A taste of urban living in a quiet, classic Old Austin neighborhood. Great evening walks to many fantastic restaurants, including Z-Tejas, Cafe Josie, Jeffrey's, Winflo, Clark's Oyster Bar, Sweetish Hill Bakery, and too many others to list!! Zilker Park and the Shoal Creek hike and bike trail are only a few blocks away. Shops and art galleries abound. The land mark original Whole Foods Market is 1/2 mile away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Clarksville, Austin, TX, USA:
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.
