Why Carole and Kerry Price chose Bouldin

We purchased this property because it is in a great Austin neighborhood and in the heart of town. Originally purchased as a leased rental property we decided to convert the property to a Vacation Rental property in 2010.

What makes this house unique

Our property puts you in easy reach of everything good about South Austin. Go for a run on Lake Lady Bird, have a great cup of coffee at a myriad of places, visit a uniquely Austin trailer park eatery, shop eclectic South Congress Ave and dance the night away at many local music venues.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great property, great communication with Carole. House is super clean, kitchen had a great layout and was well supplied. Carole has provided a lot of information on Austin - we know the city but great info those who don't. Loved the washer/dryer combo - made my life easy! Backyard was just great for my dog - two spaces, one small for quick outside trips, one large to run off the energy! If you know Austin, you know this is an unbeatable location. Easy walk to 1st street and the food trucks. Very short drive to SOCO and Zilker area. The weather was super hot (100 degrees) but the house has abundant ceiling fans and cold a/c! Thanks Carole - I will rent again.

Awesome place! Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

Hill House is a great place! The home was just the right size and clean. I loved having the fenced in yard for my little dog. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The location is perfect. I was able to walk to the food trucks on 1st and it is only a 10 minute walk to Congress, plus I felt very safe. I also walked to Zilker Park, although about 30 minutes it was pleasant and easy. There is great music at El Mercado, 2 blocks away as well as the Continental Club on South Congress. I even rode the bus to downtown. It costs $2.50 for a 24 pass and you can catch the #10 on 1st. The driveway is steep!! But if you go slow it is no problem. Carole and Kerry were awesome, quickly responded to questions and close by if you need help with anything. I hope to be back!! I totally recommend Hill House. Thanks Carole and Kerry!

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We visited this house the week after Hurricane Harvey hit our hometown. Our hosts asked after our safety and offered to make special provisions for us. This was just one example of the professionalism and care with which they treated us.

As for the property, it is a well-stocked house on a quiet street in a great part of the city. I would certainly stay here again!

Great location, well equipped house

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 5) stayed in this delightful house in a quiet street close to SoCo and Barton Springs. Carole stocks a good kitchen and made plenty of suggestions for fun activities, and tasty restaurants. Highly recommended. Michael, Melbourne, Australia.

Great house & location

  • 5 of 5

The owner thought of everything you might need on your trip. If you want to cook, the kitchen is nicely equipped with spices & liquids you would need.

It was conveniently located to 1st avenue eateries & congress st. It's a kovrly neighborhood to walk in as well. My husband & I have been visiting Austin every summer for years & this house was a stand out. We would rent on of this owners properties again. It was a soulful rental.
