About the property

Bungalow, 720 sq. ft., 1 Bedroom, Office, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

This home away from home has a large queen size bed with fresh sheets, a large and relaxing living room with cable and internet, additional sleeping in a foldout couch in the living room, an additional bonus sun room that's great for a work space, free laundry, and a full kitchen. The 10 foot ceilings and large windows add character and a lot of light to this home. You will feel the 100+ years of history when walking in. Enjoy 720 square feet of this historic home in hyde park!

Hyde park is one of the most coveted neighborhoods in austin. You'll be right in the middle of central austin next to all of the exciting attractions, but also be in one of the quietest locations. The large trees and many historic homes make this a great place to walk, jog, or bike around at any time of the day. Walk a few blocks and you can be having breakfast at quack's, one of the best locations in austin for coffee and cupcakes, or eating at any of the several restaurants nearby (asti, mother's case, julio's, hyde park bar and grill), take a walk to the local park and enjoy tennis, basketball, swimming, or playground for the kids, or even to a local museum. Don't want to walk or bike? The bus route is one block away and will take you almost anywhere in the city for $1 each way!

We are family friendly and can accommodate children 5 years old or older. Total of 2 people includes any children.

About Pete Gilcrease

My wife and I live in Austin in Hyde Park and love the area. If you have any questions about things to do here or restaurants to eat at, we'd love to help!

Pete Gilcrease purchased this house in 2010

Why Pete Gilcrease chose Austin

Hyde Park is a quiet neighborhood near downtown Austin. It's great having access to everything downtown and central Austin has to offer and then come home to a quiet neighborhood.

Communication with Pete was great. Property was as described. Loved the location

  • 4 of 5

Though parts of the unit show their age, everything was clean and kitchen necessities thoughtfully supplied. The bed was the best and neighborhood quiet. We loved walking Hyde Park and found two nearby favorite restaurants, Snooze and Picnik.

One thing to note. If you have trouble climbing up into the tub for a shower, this may not be the place for you.

Overall, great experience with property and manager.

Hyde Park beauty

Clean, quiet, convenient spot in Hyde Park. Pete did a nice job of communicating with us pre-trip. Everything fell into place and was stress-free.

Charming home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and full of charm! It's an older home with lots of character (which I love). There is a front porch that is great for relaxing. The location/neighborhood is perfect- close to a bakery, a cheese shop, restaurants and a grocery store. Neighbors are out strolling kids and walking dogs along tree-lined streets. Everyone is very friendly. You're also about 5 -10 minutes from downtown. The location was perfect for us as we wanted to be close to downtown without being right in the middle of it.

The home is clean and comfortable. There are big windows that let in great daylight. The kitchen has all of the necessary tools. We didn't use any as we were hardly there, but there is certainly enough to cook, etc if you prefer. The bed is very comfortable. There is an office in the back that's great if you need it (we didn't, but it was a great space).

This was the perfect location and a great home. We will be back!

Many fun times!

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from our FIRST trip to Austin! Lots to offer. Great times and ideal place to stay. Thanks Pete for everything. Wonderful towels. A little distance from Austin proper, but that gives you time to walk and explore Hyde Park. We ate at Asti Trattoria and Quack's Bakery, nearby. Wonderful grocery stores and convenient to the bus stop which takes you directly to the campus / State Capital. We tried to check out the Elizabet Ney Museum, but sadly the day we walked over it was closed. Looks like quite a gem for Hyde Park. Austin has loads of fun things to explore. If you go, don't miss the bats at dusk, The Firehouse Bar, Barton Springs, biking the area, the museums and live entertainment, fests, Lady Bird Lake biking and ... Salt Lick. Definitely worth the drive and BYOB if you make the trip. Fun Texas experience! The only downside is that Uber and Lyft have pulled out. I'm hoping for all that their absence isn't for long. We had 8 drivers during 3 of our days and each one was a mini tour guide for us and your city and surrounding area.

Clean, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth time we have stayed in one of Pete's property because we know what to expect. The units are always clean, the beds are always comfortable, and Pete is always to quick to respond to a question or need. Hyde Park is great quiet neighborhood convenient to plenty of restaurants,. Public transportation is easily available to the near-by university and state Capitol. If you want assurance that your rental will be as advertised, any of Pete's units will meet or exceed your expectations.
