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 bungalow in 2010

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.

I was in Austin while a family member was hospitalized at Seton. Pete returned my calls and emails promptly and was so helpful on short notice. The property was beautifully renovated, well furnished, clean, and offered a peaceful respite after staying up odd hours at the hospital. So conveniently located close to the hospital, UT, Central Market and restaurants. I hope I can stay here again under happier circumstances when I can enjoy the full kitchen and nice living space. Thanks so much!

Charming and Spacious in Hyde Park

This was our fourth stay in one of Pete's rental units - he has become our go-to guy when we are traveling back to austin for work. Clean, updated rentals with great internet, access to laundry and all in one of our favorite neighborhoods. Pete's professionalism has been great and he's been available whenever we've had questions or booked on short notice.

The location is great. Restaurants, coffee shops/bakeries and a grocery all within walking distance. Bus and bike routes run through Hyde Park so access to UT and downtown are easy. Depending on time of day, it's 10-20 minutes drive time into downtown via city streets. If you are a Car2Go member, lots of neighbors use the service so cars are usually close by.

This bungalow apartment retains it's historic charm while having been updated. The layout is dog run style as mentioned in one of the other reviews with the main bedroom between the living room and the kitchen. The bathroom is accessed just off the kitchen in the sun room area. (Wouldn't be a problem other than slight privacy issues if you had the max number of guests in the house.)

The spacious, eat-in kitchen has all the tools needed to do the basic cooking we need.

I would definitely (and probably will) stay here again.

Just Perfect for Us

My wife and I spent the first two weeks of 2014 at Pete's place--and what a wonderful beginning to our year. Two 71-year-olds in austin on their inaugural visit to their first grandchild. The bungalow could not have provided a more ideal home for us during that joyous occasion. The extremely well maintained apartment was spotless on arrival, equipped with everything one could need, and comfortable in all respects. The location is ideal: excellent restaurants, bakeries, groceries and a wine bar are in fact within walking distance. And what delightful walks they are within a lovely residential neighborhood. On top of it all, it is good to know that Pete always is available should there be a need. We plan to return to austin 3-4 times a year now and our first step for each trip will be to check on the availability of the bungalow.

Fabulous place

I had a delightful 2 ½ week stay in this unit in June. As other reviewers have said, the property is in a nice well-established neighborhood of lovely homes. Although I felt completely safe in the neighborhood, it was nice to know that there were also others in the two additional units in the building, and the keypad entry provided extra security. The property was immaculately clean and very well maintained! Everything looked freshly painted. One thing that I have not seen mentioned was that the bed was most comfortable. I was a little concerned about that, as I had not seen it mentioned in any of the reviews, but as soon as I arrived in town, I laid down for just a moment to rest, and quickly sunk into a deep sleep., thanks to the comfy bed. The owner Pete was absolutely wonderful, as others have mentioned. He was immediately responsive to any concern, and I know it sounds like a cliché, but he really did everything possible to make my stay go smoothly. My only concern is that it might become so popular that I won’t be able to rent it the next time I come to town! Thanks Pete!
