We bought this 1953 Spartanette and spent 18 months restoring it to modern standards. We maintained the original floor plan, but replaced the floors, walls, electrical, plumbing, and insulation with modern equivalents. All the windows and doors were fixed or replaced. The bath was upgraded to include a large sink, full shower, and a modern yacht style toilet. The original half bath tub was repaired and replaced. Included custom built-in cabinets for ample storage. Our entire compound is partially powered by solar panels.

We hope to hear from you.

We loved our stay in the Spartanette! It was very clean and cozy, and lovely to have a yard and quiet space to retreat to.

We loved the Spartanette. Everything looked great, was clean and worked perfectly. It was ideal for enjoying quiet evenings after visiting Austin. It's a pity the weather wasn't nicer or we would have spent more mornings on the lovely patio area with the friendly dogs. We had a hot muggy week, but the AC kept everything cool and the hot shower with good pressure kept us fresh. Sara was an excellent host - quick to respond to any questions we had. Highly recommended for a cosy and relaxing stay.

A little noisy at times, but overall a great place!

The spartanette is a very unique and well designed airstream. The interiors are beautiful and efficient, reminiscent of European apartments. It's a great place for 1-2 people. I only stayed a night but was comfortable and had everything I needed. The only drawback I would say is privacy screen like drapes or blinds are absent on the doors and I felt like I had to be very careful, especially at night when the lights inside were on and outside was dark. Other than that everything was perfect. The AC was cool and the bath water hot! What else would you need?

The 1953 camper was amazing. Loved it. Look forward to staying there or the other on-site camper next time.

Sara's place is cute and comfortable. Before arriving I was a little nervous about the trailer's temperature control and its bathroom size; I happy to say I worried for no reason! The temperature stayed nice and cool in August (even by a Minnesotans standard). And, the bathroom was much more useable (for showering, drying hair, and putting on makeup) than I excepted! The bed and couch are very comfortable and there's plenty of storage space to put your bags. Sara's yard is beautiful and well maintained. Her location is incredible convenient to all the fun Austin spots! Oh, and, Sara is excellent with quickly communicating--before our arrival and during our trip. All text were answered within 30 minutes. Truly an amazing host!
