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.

Exceeded our expectations!
Our stay at Plum Cottage was even more incredible than we expected. We felt the care and warmth of the property owners not only through our email communications, but through the overall care put into the cottage itself. We felt right at home, and at times throughout the week just wanted to stay in the cottage because the amenities were fantastic, and the fenced yard was so much fun for our dog. The cottage is convenient to everything we love about Austin, especially Zilker and Barton Springs. The neighborhood was lovely, and we loved sitting on the front porch in the morning. The coffee and tea was especially appreciated by me, and the bedding was plush and comfortable. We truly had zero complaints and were very impressed!
Thank you so much for the very kind words. We work hard to earn your business and so to be publicly told how appreciative you are makes it al the better.
Cute and clean
Super cute property, we had everything we needed:).
Long weekend in Austin
We loved the Plum Cottage. It was decorated beautifully and so cozy. Although it was close to the highway, it was super quiet. We loved the location for getting back and forth to Austin. Would definitely love to stay in the Plum Cortage again.
Will definitely return to Plum Cottage! So comfy and cozy!!!
Looking forward to having you back!
We’ll Be Back!
Great property and location. Highly recommend.
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.
