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.

Perfect cottage very close to everything!
I stayed at the cottage for a trip to SXSW and it was perfect. It’s only minutes to all the venues south of the water and then I was able to hop on the SXSW shuttle to get anywhere else. For any trip to Austin this place is a great choice. The hosts are also incredibly accommodating and attentive. I look forward to coming back another time soon. Thank you!
Wonderful Plum Cottage!!
The Plum Cottage is a very cute house and perfect for a couple! It has everything you need for a short or long term stay. I stayed there for7 weeks with my 2 dogs. We loved the big fenced in back yard. Your just off South Lamar Blvd. Far enough away not to hear the traffic noise bit close enough for easy access. It is a safe residential area, with lots of people out walking, jogging and walking their dogs. Carole is wonderful and is always available for anything and everything! She truly cares about You! Spend lots of time on the deck and bbqing. Lots of great walking trails nearby and great bats and restaurants.
It's a winner!!!
Wonderful cottage with a great location
Truly enjoyed my month stay at this lovely, comfy cottage. Carole and Kerry are professional, and easily accessible. The cottage is set-up just right, everything works great and it's pleasant to stay there. Loved evening walks at Auditorium Shores with the water and beautiful skyline. Friendly, safe and convenient neighborhood....it's a wonderful cottage.
Wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable and homey.
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.
Plum Cottage was wonderful and everything and more than expected. Would recommend and hope to return.
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.
