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 Austin

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 place

  • 4 of 5

Me and my wife loved staying at plumb cottage. It was everything we were looking for. It's better than staying at a hotel. It was close to the attractions we wanted to do. The house was very nice and clean.

Great cozy location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the whole experience at Plum cottage. The location is perfect to downtown and walking around the lake. There was plenty of supplies on hand and many extra touches. Like the secured backyard and the wood floors. We definitely would recommend Plum cottage and want to book it again in the future.

Perfect cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Plum Cottage in Austin is ideally situated in a quiet neighborhood with quick access to all directions. It is clean, well-equipped and updated. We loved our stay and although it was just my sister and me, the wrap-around sofa was comfortable enough that 2 more guests could sleep there. The front porch is inviting and the backyard with deck was lovely if the weather would have been warmer and dryer. Easy check-in and check-out. The owners have left a lot of info on the area ... restaurants, shopping, sight-seeing. We will definitely seek out Plum Cottage first on our future Austin visits.

Great little place in heart of city

  • 5 of 5

Nice one bedroom cottage very close to downtown. Backyard was fully fenced and very nice for our pets. House fully updated with nice high end touches. In a very lovely, and somewhat somewhat hilly neighborhood. I assume Austin has a light ordinance, because it was VERY dark at the top of the hill. bring a flashlight, or two. Very near Zilker park and Barton Springs. Quite a few restaurant, coffee shop, bar and food truck options within walking distance.

It's one block from S Lamar which is a major street and busy. So Pro Tip: Use the stoplight at Bluebonnet in the morning when it's very busy for rush hour, if you are going downtown. There is a HEB on Oltorf a few minutes away, or take Lamar south and a couple of miles away (at 290) is a big strip mall with a Sprouts in it.

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.
