Clarksville is a quiet historical neighborhood, on the edge of downtown, which means you get to be close to all the urban action AND sleep well at night. Within a two block walking distance are many excellent restaurants, stores and parks. Downtown is a 10 minute walk.
The house is a gem of a historic house, decorated with beauty and comfort in mind. There are two bedrooms, one with a King bed, one with a Queen bed, and a family room that has couches that turn into twin beds, or a King.
The house is in a historic district of Austin, and the house has the old school charm of the 1940s, including built in phone nook, hardwood floors, original crown moulding. The house is roomy, sunny, cozy and very well situated. The backyard is big and private, with a big picnic table for picnics, and a fun red tire swing. House rental includes use of washer and dryer, hair dryer, toiletries, fresh coffee and breakfast snacks.
Guests can walk to fantastic local restaurants in all price ranges, cute stores, and a historic pharmacy with an old fashioned soda fountain. There is a Whole Foods, REI, and Anthropologie very close by, as well as the largest independent book store (Book People) and independent record store (Waterloo Records) in Austin. The neighborhood is friendly, charming, and extremely walkable.
Interaction with guests
I will meet guests a the house, and if I am unable to, will provide the door code. I am available by phone or text to provide any information or assistance.
Other things to note
The house is very near the beautiful Hike and Bike trail along Lady Bird Lake, the Zach Scott Theater, Farmer's Markets. It is in a lovely, quiet, residential Historic district, in walking distance of downtown, close to both downtown and nature.
Guests must be over 25, respect that this is a residential neighborhood, not smoke or use candles. No more than 5 guests. Plan on leaving the house relatively neat.
I am originally from LA but came 20 years ago, "just for a few years." The first area I moved in was Clarksville and I love living downtown. I am self employed and love my work and the autonomy of having my own business. I really enjoy being in a neighborhood where I can walk to things, and I love nothing better than running into people I know around town.
