Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great time! The car we rented didn't get much use! We ate at Easy Tiger a couple of times and ate at a mex. restaurant on S.Congress. The food there is fabulous! Shopped at Whole Foods, did an HEB run, also ate at P.Terry's and had a Veggie Berger which was great! Walked at Ladybird Lake twice. Learned the bus for our stay so with all the walking and bus rides ( we actually did walk into town all the way too), I only spent less than $15.00 on gas! I think a week is not enough. Next time,next year, I really hope, 10 days would be ideal. Gotta play that one by ear. the OK I I have no desire to go elsewhere, your place is perfect. I can't imagine staying in a hotel. Your neighbors were very nice. The one next door waved at me and said "hi" and the one at the purple house let my mom clip a letter from his mailbox to mail out! What a town, Austin is so welcoming and charming. We met a man while walking on the trail and said that Austin was like a big city run like a small town. What a breath of freash air. Perfect "Snow Bird" destination for sure.

This property is owned and operated by Carole and Kerry Price. Carole has taught Macrobiotic cooking for nearly 30 years. Carole is a long time supporter and volunteer at Christopher House Hospice.

Both Carole and Kerry practice yoga and enjoy traveling, movies and reading.

Carole and Kerry Price purchased this house in 2000

We purchased this property because it is in a great Austin neighborhood and in the heart of town. Originally purchased as a leased rental property we decided to convert the property to a Vacation Rental property in 2010.

Our property puts you in easy reach of everything good about South Austin. Go for a run on Lake Lady Bird, have a great cup of coffee at a myriad of places, visit a uniquely Austin trailer park eatery, shop eclectic South Congress Ave and dance the night away at many local music venues.

COZY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
The location of the home was absolutely perfect, we loved the food trucks, just a block away,Torchy's , being a favorite. We enjoyed sitting on front porch in the evening, nice quiet tree lined neighborhood. The home was immaculate and had everything we needed. Carole made sure we arrived safe and we had everything we needed. I would recommend this property to everyone as it served us perfectly. I would also like to add, the beds are incredibly comfortable, this is one thing that as a VRBO customer can be hit and miss "Kudos to Carole" you have a customer for life. It's been a Pleasure to share your home.

FOURTH TIME A CHARM!

  • 5 of 5
Once again we were able to enjoy the beautiful Hill House and be "home away" again! We came to see my daughter and had a great time visiting restaurants and various venues throughout out stay. The walking trails and lake are perfect as usual. The owners and the Hill House always get a five star rating from me and my family. I can't wait to come back! Thank you Carole and Kerry!!!!

ANOTHER WONDERFUL STAY IN THE HILL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This was our third one-month stay in the Hill House, and once again everything was great. The house is better than advertised, and the owners are extremely helpful and friendly. The kitchen comes with everything you need, and the owners have supplied DVDs, games and information about nearby restaurants and attractions. The house is very clean and comfortable, and there are two outdoor deck areas to take advantage of the sun (or shade in summer). We especially enjoyed walking and running at the Lady Bird Lake trail, and walking to South Congress and other nearby restaurants.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
What makes Hill House perfect is not its location (which is amazing--great neighborhood, dog park literally across the street, 1 block to great food trucks, 5 minutes to SOCO). It's not its amenities (which are fabulous--uber-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, spotless bathroom). It's not the property layout (which is amazing--front deck for morning coffee and back deck for evening libations PLUS an entire extra yard for catch with your dog!). It's not the "extras" for which there is no charge (super reliable WiFi, lots of games, those little toiletries I always forget like a nail file). What makes staying at Hill House perfection is the personal service you get from Carole and Kerry. From the second I contacted them until the day after I left when they offered to mail the slippers we had left behind, dealing with Carole and Kerry was a consummate pleasure. I have rented via VRBO for years, both internationally and here in the States, and this has truly been one of the most personal experiences for which I could ask. Renting Hill House wasn't like renting a house from a stranger--I felt like I was staying at my "cousin Carole's" place and that she knew just what we needed to have a fabulous time. Our trip involved some special circumstances and Carole and Kerry made sure that everything was taken care of. Even though Austin is one of the great foodie cities of the world, our situation warranted lots of down time just chilling at the house and it more than met the challenge. We cooked a number of great feasts but also were able to walk to extraordinary dining (Elizabeth St, South Congress Café, Torchy's, Home Slice, HopDaddy's). But mostly we just sat around the living room and the backyard laughing, story-telling, and playing games. Carole provided us with a set up for our Christmas tree and then checked to make sure we were okay. We have stayed in Austin quite a few times over the holidays. This year, however, felt like home.
