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.
Our stay at Sara's was great! The Spartanette is perfect for two people. The whole place was relaxing and that backyard is beautiful - we particularly liked the dogs & chickens! We would definitely want to stay here again if we come back to Austin. We used Uber the whole time we were there and this is a great location - far enough from downtown, but also just a short drive away if you want to get there. Sara is helpful & friendly and you can tell she's put a lot of effort into the place. Check it out!
I highly recommend both Spartanettes! Sara was a great host, and the spaces were impeccable! I spent my wedding weekend on the property and it was purely magical. From the glorious yard with chickens and sweet dogs, to the on-point decor and fantastic deck. Nothing short of perfect!
It was a great stay in a beautiful setting. The airstreams were beautifully decorated. The beds in both airstreams were uncomfortable and in the mansion it was very hard. I had sleepless nights both night. There was an issue with fleas in one of the trailers and the host took great care to rectify the problem.
Kirsten told me they had seen fleas in the Spartanette the morning after their stay. I had a professional out that same day to treat the yard and inside on based on her report. Neither I or the professionals saw any fleas before during or after the treatment. My subsequent guests did not encounter any issues with bugs either. I'm certainly sorry Kirsten had sleepless nights.
I highly recommend staying in this space. It was absolutely enchanting and quant. Sara was very hospitable and made us feel right at home. It was quiet and clean. The yard was lovely to sit out and read in. The location is in a great spot it was close enough to everything within a short drive.
