About Carole and Kerry Price

We are Kerry and Carole Price and have been hosting out of town guests in Austin for over three years. Plum Cottage is our newest furnished rental home.

We have been married for over 25 years and have raised both of our children within a mile of this home and still live in the neighborhood. Kerry still has a day job in the packaging business and loves wooden boats. Carole manages the vacation rental properties and is a community volunteer with Hospice Austin.

We both found our way to Austin: Kerry from Minnesota and Carole from Glasgow Scotland. We met in South Austin in the mid 80's and have never left.

Carole and Kerry Price purchased this house in 1998

Why Carole and Kerry Price chose Austin

We bought this property several years ago and kept it as a long term rental property until converting it into a Short Term Furnished Vacation Rental opening in February of 2013. To make this conversion we have remolded starting at the wall studs and added a room to make a virtually new home.

The original home was built around 1950 and still has much of its old classic charm including the cut glass door handles and solid wood interior paneled doors and baseboards.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. This section of Austin is one of the most sought after areas for people coming to Austin to live or play. Conveniently located near to most of Austin's major - and some off beat- attractions. Here you will find real Austinites both young and old.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay a Plum Cottage. I feel so lucky to have found a modern, beautifully decorated bungalow with such a great location. We were able to walk to several great S. Lamar bars and restaurants. Our stay was mostly during a few rainy days, so I can't wait to come back and enjoy the great backyard deck. The inside of the house was perfect in very way for an individual or couple. It's like having all the comforts of home, except it's probably cleaner and more stylish than home! We are looking forward to coming back soon. Thank you Carole and Kerry!

Fantastic Formula One Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Formula One brought me to Austin for the first time. The Plum Cottage was a great find! My girlfriend and I loved the location with so many great restaurants with-in walking distance. We took the opportunity to explore the neighborhood upon arrival and found a number of highly rated options near by. Downtown was just a handful of minutes away and finding a quick ride was easy. The home was neatly decorated and just what we needed. My girlfriend loved the decor and I of all things enjoyed the hardwood floors. Carole was very responsive and accommodating and I would highly consider a stay at the cottage once again. The home is perfect for two as is the price. Carole provided a list of recommended spots and knows her neighborhood. Of course you already know all of this with the countless positive reviews. Thank you!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
Plum Cottage is a true "home away from home"...the attention to small details were very much appreciated and made our stay so relaxing. It is a comfortable yet chic cottage. The owners were extremely user friendly and had info available for all things Austin...including dog friendly places. We really appreciated our labradoodle being welcomed.
We would highly recommend Plum Cottage and will return!
Thanks so much!
