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.

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 North University
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.

Very nice neighborhood location. Quiet. Walking distance to a park and restaurants, close to the university. Convenient street parking. The place itself was clean, nicely furnished, the upstairs bedroom was quite nice and comfy, nice big kitchen with the essentials. My only complaint was that it didn't feel cozy. Also the bathroom was small and the deep tub could be difficult for some to step in and out of.
Charming neighborhood, great place to stay
We loved this neighborhood and the house we clean, comfortable, and well kept. It was a very nice stay. I would recommend it to anyone. It was just a short $10ish Lift ride to almost anywhere in the city. We walked to a sweet bakery about 4 blocks away for great lattes and yummy pastries.
This is our second stay in this unit and we were just as pleased this time as the last. The unit is very clean and equipped with everything you need for a short or long stay. The location is great and in a very nice neighborhood which is great for walking. The laundry is shared in a garage out back. Pete, the owner, is very prompt with replies to my questions and very helpful. We will stay again on our next visit to Austin.
Very Nice & Comfortable
Very nice comfortable house with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Beautiful, secluded suburban neighborhood but only a short drive from U TX and downtown area. Served as a perfect base for our visit to Austin
Love the neighborhood!
We loved the Hyde Park neighborhood. It is full of charming homes (all with front porches!) and sidewalks for easy walks. It's convenient to the University of Texas, parks and the downtown area.
What I don't think is clear in the description is that the one bathroom is on the main floor and very small (clawfoot tub is original and it's a major step over the sides into it). The spacious queen bedroom is upstairs. To get from one to the other is a narrow steep staircase (If you're tall...duck!). The other area for sleeping is shared with the dining table off the kitchen. The outdoor area in the backyard was not appealing. Although the shade tree is nice, the yard is mainly dirt, and looks out on the alley with the garbage and recycling receptacles. There are 3 air-conditioning units that I think would be noisy in the summer if they were all running.
As others have stated, Pete its the best host! He was responsive to all our requests and questions.
The unit is spacious and well priced. Restaurants, grocery stores and coffee shops close by were great!
Great location, great price and cute!
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.
