About Carole and Kerry Price

We are Kerry and Carole Price and have been hosting out of town guests in Austin for over three years. Plum Cottage is our newest furnished rental home.

We have been married for over 28 years and have raised both of our children within a mile of this home and still live in the neighborhood. Kerry still has a day job in the packaging business and loves wooden boats. Carole manages the vacation rental properties and is a community volunteer with Hospice Austin.

We both found our way to Austin: Kerry from Minnesota and Carole from Glasgow Scotland. We met in South Austin in the mid 80's and have never left.

Carole and Kerry Price purchased this house in 1998

Why Carole and Kerry Price chose Zilker

We bought this property several years ago and kept it as a long term rental property until converting it into a Short Term Furnished Vacation Rental opening in February of 2013. To make this conversion we have remolded starting at the wall studs and added a room to make a virtually new home.

The original home was built around 1950 and still has much of its old classic charm including the cut glass door handles and solid wood interior paneled doors and baseboards.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. This section of Austin is one of the most sought after areas for people coming to Austin to live or play. Conveniently located near to most of Austin's major - and some off beat- attractions. Here you will find real Austinites both young and old.

I have rented Plum Cottage a number of times now from Carole and Kerry. The place is perfect little cottage (bedroom, bathroom , kitchen, and living room) that is well appointed and close to downtown and Zilker Park. Carole and Kerry have a wonderful decorating eye, and have thought of everything you might need for your stay (dishes, kitchen towels, glasses, even shopping bags). The house is wonderful, and Carole is very attentive; she always wants to be sure things are going well for you and that all's well with the house. It's why I've come back to this place so many times. Highly recommend.

Great location for dt events

Carole kept on contact with me throughout our stay. I had e-mailed her a question and got a prompt response. Home is clean, pretty, and inviting. I felt like i had left home to only spend time in a better home. Great location for ACL.

The perfect place to stay while visiting Austin.

  • 5 of 5

The Plum Cottage was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay. It's conveniently located near so many awesome restaurants (Red's Porch for Sunday brunch was amazing) as well as being just a few minutes from South Congress, Zilker Park, Barton Springs, and Downtown Austin. The little cottage is so welcoming, clean and comfortable. Thanks so much Carole and Kerry. Hope to stay again sometime soon.

Plum Cottage is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just a short walk or drive away to South Austin's vibrant newest restaurants, bars and shops. Famous Maria's Taco Express is just a block away for Live Sunday Gospel music and killer breakfast tacos or just down the street you can wander in to Gourdough's Public House Pub with their unique savory doughnut sandwiches. Up the road just a short jaunt you can mosey in to the world famous Broken Spoke honky tonk for some real live Texas swing music and dance the night away on their sawdust sprinkled dance floor. Bring your boots and cowboy hat! Amy's Ice Cream, Phil's Ice House, Kerbey Lane Cafe and much much more are all less than 1/2 mile away from your home away from home.

Other attractions: Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Hike and Bike Trail, South Congress Shopping district and Downtown Austin are all within a 5-10 minute drive away.
