Also we have another vacation rental (North Padre Island waterfront) on vrbo that we've been leasing for years. I say this so that you can see the reviews on that place and get an idea of what kind of owners we are, and how we take care of our guests. Our property in Austin is relatively new on vrbo and so we have only a few reviews thus far.

Wonderful space, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with another couple, for South by Southwest. The house was perfect for us. We especially loved the private outdoor space and the proximity to downtown. The property owner was so accommodating, and even allowed us to check in early. I highly reccomend this property!

very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well kept. We were there for a weekend but were really only at the house to sleep. The location is quite convenient, whether accessing downtown Austin or MOPAC for heading out of town, plus the ability to walk to the lake and the restaurants there was very nice. I would certainly stay here again.

Perfect location, incredible stay

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I were in town to play in a golf tournament across the street at Muny - could not have been a better location to stay! The place was clean, comfortable, and easy to get in - out. Would recommend to anyone who needs a place to camp out for any period of time.

Fantastic location, convenient & comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Austin for the whole week of SXSW as performers of the festival, staying in Clarksville kept us close to grocery stores, great coffee shops and of course the Magnolia Cafe for late night eats. It was totally convenient to Uber to and from our performances and the house was cool, quiet and comfortable. Highly recommended from a group of musicians who have travelled all over the world!

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this home which is in a beautiful and developed neighborhood with CHARM and walking distance to a local restaurant for dinner and coffee house for breakfast on the water. Even though there is a bus service that goes by the house it is better to have a car since you are 2+ miles out of town and if raining a bike ride wouldn't work. This home was COZY, CLEAN and well stocked for cooking and beds and sofa COMFY too.
