Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1200 sq. ft., 2 Bedrooms, Office Area, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Upon check-in you'll receive your own keyless security code to let you into your new home away from home. The main bedroom is furnished with a queen bed. The second bedroom has a daybed that folds out comfortably into a king size bed or can just be used as a twin bed. There's also an additional twin bed in the second bedroom. There's a full size kitchen, a large living room, and laundry. The 10 foot ceilings and large windows make the home feel even larger than it is. This historic home was completely remodeled in 2010 and includes different residences, but it still has its old character and charm from 1915. There's a large fully fenced back yard with a patio set perfect for a relaxing afternoon.

Location is everything! Stay in one of the most trendy and historic neighborhoods in Austin. The location is ideal for families or anyone that would like to be close to all of the attractions that Austin has to offer, but also a quiet, relaxing, and safe neighborhood and home to come back to after exploring.

Walk a few blocks and you can have breakfast or coffee at one of the best bakeries in Austin, shop at a local grocery store, have lunch at several restaurants, view the many early 1900 Victorian homes, or an afternoon snack at a local sandwich shop that's been open since 1909. If you want to travel somewhere farther away in Austin, the bus route is on the next street. Hop right onto the bus and go anywhere for $1. If you need any recommendations on places to eat or see in Austin, we are more than happy to help any time.

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.

Very nice place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a good place to stay. It's just as it appears in the pictures. Immaculate and in a beautiful residential location with lots of nice eating places, a bakery and grocery stores within walking distance. It was quiet and had everything we needed and the landlord was quick to respond to our needs. It's a great location in Central Austin. I would stay here again!!!

A lovely home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The listing for this property was very accurate. Hyde Park is a lovely residential neighborhood. The unit was extremely clean and nicely decorated. The upstairs bedroom was spacious with a large amount of closet space and plenty of lighting. The queen mattress was extremely comfortable. The stairs leading to that bedroom are narrow, but very solid and secure.

The living room was great. It has a huge sofa, large coffee table, and two desks for computers/games, etc. The TV is a modern flat panel HD model.

The kitchen was very spacious. While there is no automatic dishwasher, the large double sink and plastic dish drain allowed us to easily keep up with the dishes--and we typically ate 1-2 meals a day at the rental. Scrubbers, dish soap, and dish towels were all provided. The kitchen had a full-size refrigerator with a Brita pitcher. Most utensils were provided, as well as salt, pepper, and dry goods left by the the owner or previous renters that made it easier to use. The only items lacking were bakeware, such as a pizza pan and a 13x9 pan, which would have been helpful.

The laundry facilities are in a detached garage. We came prepared with laundry soap and dryer sheets, but if you get lucky, there might be some left in the laundry room for community use. The easiest access to the laundry is through the door facing the back yard instead of the street, since the overhead light is visible at that entrance.

The bathroom had a modern toilet and sink with a nice mirror, and plenty of very absorbent towels. The tub is an old-style claw-foot tub, which can be either very charming or a bit of a challenge, depending on your height, age, or any disability. We managed, but it was our least favorite feature of the house. If you love the idea of long soaks in a deep tub, then you will be thrilled.

We did not use the back room of the rental, which contained a dinette with seating for four, as well as an oversized day bed and a regular twin bed.

Be sure to visit Quack's Bakery and the businesses at 43rd and Duval. The staff at Antonelli's were great, and we enjoyed a dinner at Hyde Park Grill. For the best prices, if you have a car, go to H-E-B for groceries. Central Market was also very good but a bit more expensive, and Fresh Plus the most expensive and smallest.

Pete was a wonderful landlord and very responsive to my many questions before our stay. We would definitely rent from him again if we returned to Austin.

Great Close-In Home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was so clean, spacious, and lovely! I really enjoyed my stay here. Pete (owner/manager) was so responsive to all my questions or issues. Checking in and out was a breeze. Neighborhood is so quaint, quiet, but close to so many things including UT and Downtown. The property was definitely well maintained and the pictures he has on this site are very accurate. Except you got a lot more space than I had anticipated!! I would definitely rent from one of Pete's units again.

Love, Love, Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment shows just like the pictures. No bad surprises here! It was delightful, clean as a pin, and very comfortable. We enjoyed Julio's, Hyde Park Bar & Grill, Mother's and Antonelli's Cheese Shop. All very good but the cheese shop was the star attraction since my Grandson is a real foodie. I originally rented the apartment for 2 people but Pete graciously allowed 2 more when unforeseen circumstances occurred. He's a great host and I will contact him the next time we are in Austin for a first rate place to stay.

Wonderful accommodations in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful three week stay in Austin! Just love the accommodations including being spacious, very clean and close to downtown. Very nice neighborhood. Very friendly and felt very safe there! We stayed here last year and it's become our home away from home. We just love the kitchen and the washer/dryer. Nice knowing that Pete is either a phone call or text away if needed Highly recommend this apartment for its parking, well located and for its ammenities!! Thanks Pete for everything!
