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 space

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.

Guest access

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.

Jordana was amazing! So helpful and her place is so so so cute. The beds were extremely comfortable and it was just a quick walk to downtown and whole foods :). Even the backyard was so cute! I would highly reccomend staying here.

Jordana was a very gracious host. We were first time visitors to Austin. She was always available for help and suggestions if needed. The house fit our needs perfectly. If you are a small family or a group of small friends looking for a relaxed and private place to crash, Jordana's will work for you.

Jordana was great! She gave us a list of recommended restaurants and places to visit in the area. There are great restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance of the cottage.

Jordana was there to meet some of my group and was very helpful in providing directions and dinning recommendations. She was easy to reach when we couldn't figure out the wifi passcode!

I stayed here with a few colleagues for SXSW Interactive to avoid the ABSURD hotel prices during the event. It was an excellent decision. Jordana was an amazing and gracious host who made several helpful recommendations for restaurants, activities, and general navigation of the city. The house was perfect for our needs. The bedrooms were comfortable and private and the bathrooms clean and totally functional. The location is great for those who want to be close to downtown, but not smack in the middle of the mayhem. It took us about 8-10 minutes via car to get to the heart of downtown, but keep in mind this was at the height of SXSW traffic. It's probably closer to 5 min on a normal day and definitely walkable if you're looking for a little activity. I highly recommend staying here if you're looking for some local Austin living!

Jordana was extremely prompt to respond to any query and very lovely and helpful. The place was exactly as described. It is about a 30min walk to the convention centre, which was a nice way to start the SXSW day, and about a 10-15min walk to Wholefoods and otherwise also really easy and quick via car with Uber or otherwise. Really nice to get away from 6th street madness at the end of the night - Great for SXSW. Thanks Jordana.

Wonderful place to stay for our group of five for an ACL weekend and to explore Austin from. Jordana was a terrific host by providing tips about the neighborhood, allowing us to drop off luggage before check-in time and giving us breakfast snacks. The house was very comfortable and cute. Highly recommend!

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.
