Overview

About the property

Bungalow, 1200 sq. ft., 2 Bedrooms, Office Area, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Upon check-in you'll receive your own keyless security code to let you into your new home away from home. The main bedroom is furnished with a queen bed. The second bedroom has a daybed that folds out comfortably into a king size bed or can just be used as a twin bed. There's also an additional twin bed in the second bedroom. There's a full size kitchen, a large living room, and laundry. The 10 foot ceilings and large windows make the home feel even larger than it is. This historic home was completely remodeled in 2010 and includes different residences, but it still has its old character and charm from 1915. There's a large fully fenced back yard with a patio set perfect for a relaxing afternoon.

Location is everything! Stay in one of the most trendy and historic neighborhoods in Austin. The location is ideal for families or anyone that would like to be close to all of the attractions that Austin has to offer, but also a quiet, relaxing, and safe neighborhood and home to come back to after exploring.

Walk a few blocks and you can have breakfast or coffee at one of the best bakeries in Austin, shop at a local grocery store, have lunch at several restaurants, view the many early 1900 Victorian homes, or an afternoon snack at a local sandwich shop that's been open since 1909. If you want to travel somewhere farther away in Austin, the bus route is on the next street. Hop right onto the bus and go anywhere for $1. If you need any recommendations on places to eat or see in Austin, we are more than happy to help any time.

We are family friendly and can accommodate children 5 years old or older. Total of 4 people includes any children.

Great location, great price and cute!

  • 3 of 5

Overall, my experience with this stay was very good. The house is in a great location with a really good price for the quality. The house is comfortably furnished and cute. My daughter and I enjoyed our stay. A few constructive criticism comments:

- the placement of two singles in the dining room is a bit strange. Understand maximizing the space for more people but it sort of took away from it feeling like home.

- A full length mirror somewhere would have been nice.

- The wine opener was broken.

- Understand keeping the price down and not provided toiletries but I do think having coffee would have made a nice touch.

- The stove is a bit outdated and made a lot of noise when you walked through the kitchen.

- Bathtub was cute but trying to use as a shower was cumbersome and it being the only bathroom, left us with not a lot of choice.

- I hit my head on the stairs coming down many times. I dont know if it makes sense for someone really tall to try to stay/live there.

- Some light in the closet area of the master would be good.

We appreciated the owners thoughtfulness. I would recommend this house for others.

Convenient and modern clean place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay during a hot weekend in July. The owner was super responsive before and during our stay. We had a hiccup with the AC and he was over late on a Saturday which was so appreciated. We would definitely stay again. Thanks for a great accommodation in one of our favorite cities!

Great location for our time in Austin.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very comfortable. Ample water pressure and plenty of hot water. Very, very clean.

Will definitely consider renting it again.

A couple of suggestions, a mat to wipe shoes on inside the front door and a bench to sit on while removing shows.

Great place Peter, thanks again!!

Great Unit in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

The unit is extremely clean and well kept. The neighborhood is safe and charming with places close to shop, eat, and drink. Will return to this unit again. Our only concern was the size of the shower but it worked well and was clean.

Pete was attentive and friendly.

About Pete Gilcrease

My wife and I live in Austin in Hyde Park and love the area. If you have any questions about things to do here or restaurants to eat at, we'd love to help!

Pete Gilcrease purchased this house in 2010

Why Pete Gilcrease chose Hyde Park

Hyde Park is a quiet neighborhood near downtown Austin. It's great having access to everything downtown and central Austin has to offer and then come home to a quiet neighborhood.
