We bought this 1953 Spartanette in the Spring of 2010 and spent 18 months restoring it to modern standards. We completely removed all the original paneling, flooring, and fixtures. 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. Built in cabinets were designed and installed for ample storage. Our house and the Spartanette are now powered entirely by solar panels.
Rental includes street parking, wireless internet access, CD/Aux stereo, and cable TV. Pick up and drop off from airport can be arranged. Catering may also be available.
We hope to hear from you.

We have two sweet and aloof Ibizan hounds on the property as well as a small flock of heritage breed chickens in a closed aviary.
We ask that you smoke outside in the covered seating area and restrict candles or other flames to the outside areas or the fire pit.
If you have any special requests we will do our best to accommodate you. Please don't hesitate to contact us prior to booking with any questions.
Only stayed one night but the experience more than met my expectations. Would definitely recommend, as it's in a great part of town and all the amenities were there that you need.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully renovated spartanette and would gladly stay again. Everything we needed was furnished and Sara was extremely pleasant. We had concerns with the heat but the trailer was plenty cool with the brand new air conditioning. Drinks on a warm evening on the trailer's patio are a must!
What a neat space. Perfect Austin experience, very weird decor, lovely garden,platform bed with futon style mattress. Really enjoyed watching the dogs move around the garden. Great spot
A-mazing! Such a cool spot. Sara and her husband were super cool and great hosts. Not to mention their house and the Spartanette are solar powered which makes this airbnb go from 5 stars to 6! If I ever come back to Austin this rental is on the top of my list of places to stay.
I loved staying at Sara's Spartanette Guesthouse. Everything was just as pictured and the trailer inside was very modern and clean. Sara was extremely friendly and the yard was huge, nice, and private. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our first Airbnb experience and would definitely stay here again for our next Austin trip. Also it was convenient to get to downtown and all the places we wanted to go. Only about 10-15 minutes out from everything.
Sara was incredibly accommodating. Available whenever we had questions but also granted us our privacy. An incredible way to experience austin. Close to everything, unique, stylish in a lush garden setting. We couldn't have asked for anything else! It was a fantastic trip.
This place was awesome! This was my first airbnb experience and it was great - Sara made it very easy for us to access the Spartanette even when she wasn't around. The Spartanette was very clean and cozy, and we fit 3 people in it just fine. The neighborhood and backyard where the Spartanette sits were very quiet and artsy, and was only a short drive away from 6th Street, South Congress, and other fun places in Austin to explore. She was also very responsive to texts I sent asking for recommendations for places in Austin to check out. I would definitely stay here again.
