About the property

Bungalow, 1200 Sq. Ft., 2 Bedrooms Plus Office W/ Bed, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Charming 1940's single family bungalow home with original hardwood floors, original knobs and other fixtures, backyard, and plenty of parking. We completely remodeled the home in 2016, but maintained its original character and charm. There's a full 2 bedrooms with queen size beds and a twin bed in a 3rd bonus room/office to sleep a total of 5 people. The bonus room has a desk and chair and makes for a perfect office. The office is open to the kitchen without a private door. Complimentary laundry facility is included. The home has everything that you would need from dishes, pots and pans, a toaster, stove, refrigerator, table and chairs, towels, and fresh sheets.

It's located in the heart of Hyde Park in central Austin within walking distance to restaurants, a bakery, and other local businesses. ASTI, Quack's Mother's Cafe, Julio's, and several other restaurants are close by. There is a public bus stop one block away that will take you anywhere in the city including downtown.

My wife and I live nearby, so we're always available if you have any questions about Austin or need any suggestions for sights to see or places to eat. We hope that you select this wonderful guest house for your stay!

We are family friendly and can accommodate up to 2 children. Total of 5 people includes any children.

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.

Overall the holiday accommodation was good

  • 4 of 5

Overall the holiday accommodation was good.

However there are a couple of things that need attention.

First, the hot water, the first person to bathe in the morning had a hot water with their shower. Subsequently the water remained tepid for each person that followed.

I think it would be useful if the bathroom door had a lock.

A quiet oasis in Hyde Park

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of a property in a wonderful location. We are repeat renters and will be back. It is so nice to be able to walk in the neighborhood to enjoy a meal or pick up groceries.

From start to finish Pete is very responsive and his properties are well furnished and maintained.

A charming, comfortable, and very clean house in the perfectly situated Hyde Park neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

The house is a great place to stay in central Austin. Within easy walking distance of several good restaurants, bakery, and small grocer. Bus line to downtown goes right by front door. The house is minimally furnished but comfortable, with lovely hardwood floors, big windows, 2 large bedrooms, smaller 3rd bedroom, separate dining room, and updated kitchen. Be aware, though, that the shower is in an old-fashioned free-standing bathtub; stepping over the high sides and negotiating the narrow space inside while showering may be difficult for some people. The owner is very helpful and friendly before, during, and after your stay.
