Terrific fully restored two bedroom 1940s cottage in a fantastic central Austin location. Tons of light and charm.

Great outdoor space. Very much an 'old Austin' vibe.

Excellent location in very high demand Clarksville area. Five minutes to downtown, 6th Street, Town Lake, Zilker Park. 1 block to great restaurants, grocery, coffee. Very walkable, friendly area. 

Address is 1629 Waterston Avenue Austin TX 78703.

Quality, eclectic furnishings (including custom made reclaimed cedar living room furniture and kitchen cabinets).  Two large sunny bedrooms, each with a queen size bed.

Gorgeous hand-scraped original wood floors.  Modern kitchen appliances (the stove is a high-quality reproduction).  Oversize washer/dryer.  

Blazing fast with and direct ethernet (up to 1 gig service).

High speed Level 2 electric vehicle charger in private drive (not shared with anyone else). J1772 universal compatibility - if you have a Tesla just bring your adapter.

See our guest house studio on the same property.  We live in the main house on the property (on the back side of the lot).

Fully fenced side and back yards. Dog friendly home. However we do not represent that the yard is dog proof and ask that dogs not be left unattended in the yard.   Also like many neighborhoods in Austin you will see neighborhood chickens and cats in the neighborhood and sometimes in the yard. 

Locally-owned (not a giant corporation). Austin is a boomtown and is undergoing unprecedented growth. You may hear construction going on in the neighborhood (generally restricted to reasonable daytime weekday hours but that's not a guarantee), there may be road closures for festivals, races, etc. 

PLEASE ASK about longer term rates. Rates for March/October are much higher because of SXSW and ACL and F1 but if you are seeking longer term rental the rates may be lower.

Since every booking is different the rates listed are an approximation. Rates are based on length of stay, specific dates needed, amenities needed, etc. Stays of less than 30 days are subject to the 17 percent lodging tax. Please don't hesitate to ask for details.
We bought this property years ago. Local residents. We provide furnished lodging full time. We've been providing lodging for over 25 years. We bought our first property in 1997 by selling our 1982 Jeep CJ5 and using the money from that for a down payment on our first place. This is our sole source of income. We thank you for your interest.
