Welcome to your home away from home, a three-bedroom two-bath multi-story home in Southwest Austin. Complete with a gas fireplace, digital cable, DVD players with surround sound and a DVD collection, wifi, washer/dryer, a patio set on the deck, a Wurlitzer piano, and even a treadmill for your on-the-go fitness needs.
The first floor houses the kitchen, dining room that seats 6, and living room with piano, 42" wall-mounted TV, digital cable, DVD player, iPod dock, two sofas, and surround sound.
The second floor houses the guest bedroom (queen bed) with TV/cable/DVD, guest bathroom with connected washer and dryer room, and a combination office/workout space that leads to the backyard, complete with deck, patio set that seats 4, and charcoal grill.
On the third floor you'll find the master bedroom (king bed) with its own bathroom, and another 42" wall-mounted flat screen with cable/DVD/streaming netflix.
You are within two miles of all things super: a Super Wal-Mart, a Super Target, and an HEB super grocery store. You are just ONE block away from Shipley's donuts for breakfast (best kolaches!), a yoga studio with a walk-in rate of just $5/class, and a Cajun restaurant/bar with live music almost every night. You're about 10-15 minutes from downtown, which is a straight shot down MoPac (Loop 1).
The house sleeps 4 very comfortably, but if you want to include the set of couches downstairs, you could easily swing six. ;)
Welcome to Austin!!
Claire is an awesome host! I contacted her last minute on an unusual request and she responded quickly and was very accomidating. During the whole process she was very communitative and even followed up with me afterwards. Her house was fabulous! It has such personaility and fabulous art everywhere. Since Claire was going to be out of town, her boyfriend contacted me with his info the morning of my stay if I had any problems. Overall the experience couldn't have been any better. And I strongly recommend her for your Austin staying needs.
Claire's place was a home away from home. As soon as you walk in you are instantly greeted by her passion for great artwork. Even though I didn't get a chance to meet Claire her boyfriend Mark took very good care of us. The cats added a lot of personality to the place too. I would recommend her place to anybody. Thanks again Claire and Mark for everything :-)
The place is nicely decorated in a very quite and convince location. Claire has two cats who are very nice and did not in any way disturb us. However, the experience could have been better if the place had been a bit cleaner, especially the bathrooms looked like they had not been cleaned for a while with hair on the floor and dirty toilet boils and seats. However Claire told me later that she was out of town and had a housekeeper take care of the cleaning so maybe our experience does not reflect the standard condition of the house.
Markus-- Since I was already out of state for Thanksgiving upon your arrival, I had my housekeeper clean and prepare the house instead of myself. I apologize that the bathrooms were not up to your standards and have discussed this with her. However, I tried several times via text and email to reach you during your stay, and I never received any reply or feedback from you until after you left the house. Had I been made aware of any issues during your stay, I would have gladly sent her back to fix, as I take pride in my home and want my guests to have the very best experiences. I am confused as to why you did not address anything with me personally, since we made it very clear that we were available for anything at all during your stay.
I stayed here during the Thanksgiving Holidays and had a wonderful stay! My family was very comfortable and Claire was great host and available for any questions that we had. I highly recommend this property.
Our stay at Claire's place was wonderful. Not only was the house amazing, but Claire is a great person and host! We contacted Claire on super short notice and she was having her 30th birthday party on the night we wanted to arrive, but she let us stay anyways and even invited us! We had one of the best nights on our trip. The house is big and clean with beautiful interior. Claire has made a big folder with everything you need to know about the house, neighborhood and Austin. Thank you, we would love to come back!
We had a really great stay at Claire's house. It was a last-minute reservation which she was totally able to accomodate. Claire's house is very warm and cozy - with 3 kids, it was a much better option for us than a hotel. We were able to kick back and relax. The two cats are a great addition!
I would rate this place a 10/10!!! My friends and I rented the place for the weekend to attend a friends wedding. Claire has a great style for decorating the place, very modern and organized! I would definetly rent the place out again! Claire was very accomodating, courteous, and a great host. I would recommend this place to anyone, absolutely loved the place (wish I owned a place like this)!!! :)
Hands down the best place to stay in South Austin! The house was extremely clean, very close to 6th street and feels like home! Claire was a very great host! She was quick to respond to my texts/calls when I had a question about anything. I highly recommend to rent Claire's house! You won't be disappointed.
Claire's place is just amazing. beds are good, location is great, she is a lovely host. the only bad thing was we just stay for a weekend .... 100% like
When planning our river trip to Austin, my friends and I decided to choose a vacation rental instead of a hotel for convenience and comfort. We couldn't have made a better choice! Claire's house is so charming and comfortable, we were in love with it the minute we walked through the door. We had planned to cook the entire weekend and it was perfect... the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and everything was easy to find. We shopped at the HEB close by, but don't forget to bring reusable bags as Austin has a plastic bag ban. Creature comforts were also plentiful with extra towels, pillows, linens, tea and coffee readily available. The patio off of the office was great for hanging out and having a drink. The location was awesome thanks to being really close to Mopac/Loop 1. We were able to get to downtown within 10 minutes and out to the river in 15-20 minutes. Last but not least, we really loved having the kitties around during our stay. Miles and Remy are sure to keep you company if you choose to stay here. Thanks, Claire! If we are ever back in Austin, we are sure to look you up again.
