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.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Plum Cottage far surpassed our expectations, the home was beautiful, the neighborhood was perfect, and Carole and Kerry were so helpful and kind. The home was perfectly stocked with all the necessities. We truly enjoyed our stay!
Plum - amazing location in South Austin
The Plum is our go to when in Austin. We have stayed at least five times at the Plum, mainly for the location in South Austin, walking distance to many places, including Opa for coffee, and the amazing Carole, our host, would give you the shirt off her back. She is accommodating in every way. Every amenity you would ever need are offered here from spices for cooking, grilling, coffee beans, you name it. Towels are nice and fluffy and plenty of extra bedding, if needed, plus an extremely comfy bed, needed after a day/night of exploring in Austin. You can't go wrong with the Plum -- just don't book it during my stay. Perfect for two people. Roomy back yard and lovely deck for grilling and chilling. I miss it already, and I was just there last week. Thank you, Carole, for your outstanding customer service, as always. Plum is our home away from home, and we can't wait to come back next spring!
Perfect home in the best part of Austin!
The house was perfect! Located in a great neigborhood in my favorite part of South Austin. Comfortable, pratical and loaded with amenties, in fact I cannot think of one thing that Carole and Kerry left out. Close to great restaurants and great live music venues as well as Zilker Park and trails near Lady Bird/ Town Lake. I wish I lived there!!
Lovely and cozy cottage
This was our second time staying here, and we just love it here. The home is so cute and cozy, and perfectly equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend.
As always the home is clean and very welcoming. This is our 3rd year at that house for ACL and its very accommodating for the event. The rooms and bathroom are well kept. Overall always a great experience. Carole keeps in touch, a text, phone call, or email away. Always very good hosts.
