About Carole and Kerry Price

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. Kerry while not working at his job in the corrugated box business spends his free time restoring 1946 Chris Craft wooden motor boat.

Carole and Kerry Price purchased this house in 2000

Why Carole and Kerry Price chose Austin

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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.

Cozy and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for almost 2 weeks at the Hill House and enjoyed every minute. The location is perfect. Half hour walk or quick (cheap on Lyft line) ride downtown for everything SXSW. Easy walk to S. Congress. Tons of food on S. 1st (don't miss the Elizabeth St. Cafe).

The house had everything we needed: Well stocked kitchen and super comfy beds. I'll be back.

The Best Rental Austin Has To Offer

  • 5 of 5

The Hill House was the perfect house for our 2 month visit. Great location, fully equipped, affordability, clean, lots of outdoor space (including 2 decks and 2 great outdoor spaces out back). There was so much to do within easy walking distance. We didn't need to use our car much other than to visit our daughter further south in Austin. And Carole and Terry were the ultimate hosts. Kind, helpful, and generous describes them best. We use VRBO a lot and this has to be the best rental we've ever had using them. This rental well deserves 5 stars!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Well, I'm a little late in posting my review but better late than never? This is not the first time we have stayed at one of Carole's houses and it will definitely not be the last. This was our first stay in this particular house (we have previously stayed at Plum Cottage) and we adored it! The backyard was huge and our dogs ran around like crazy people and enjoyed every moment of their stay as well! I loved that this was so close to so many things- we walked to so many places! Carole was a great host as always. We will definitely keep coming back!

Excellent stay for ACL made better by great property management

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property during the first week of ACL 2014. The property was just close enough for us to walk to the park for the show. Walking back after the show we felt very safe as well. The home had everything we could have wanted for our stay. However we would have loved to have had a hot tub in the beautiful back yard to relax in afterwards. Very close to the food trucks and other restaurants in Austin and I would recommend for anyone wanting to spend some time getting to know Austin.
