House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 5)
This beautifully furnished 2 king bedroom, 2.5 bath house (sleeps 5 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.

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 Clarksville
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.

Amazing House and Location
We stayed at this house for SXSW and it was perfect. The house has two large bedrooms upstairs and plenty of room to hang out outside! You can walk to some the bars/restaurants,Wholefoods in only a few blocks away and Ubers/Lyfts were around $4.00 to and from downtown etc. The house was clean, beds were comfortable and Bob is great! I would rent here again if I was ever in Austin!
Great house; excellent location.
This house was well suited for two couples visiting Austin for a week with its two king bedroom suites upstairs. The home was comfortable, clean, well-maintined, and offered everything we needed plus more. The host was easy to connect with, made entry and exit easy, and gladly offered advice on request. The location is near downtown Austin while still being a quiet neighborhood, yet with easy access to main roads. Each day we plotted out a 3-mile loop walk, taking in the different sections of central Austin including Capitol square, the river walk, the University area, Umlauf sculpture gardens, etc. We tried out, and enjoyed, several of the nearby restaurants and bars. The neighborhood felt safe, and nights were quiet except for an occasional distant train whistle. This rental enhanced our Austin stay.
Great Austin experience.
This wonderful home provided a comfortable retreat from the hustle of the downtown area while at the same time being conveniently located to everything you would want to experience. Great owner communication as well. Highly recommended.
Comfortable and centrally located
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
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.
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!!
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.
