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

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.

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.

Exceeded expectations!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just left Plum Cottage after a very enjoyable weekend and we will definitely be back! The house was so clean you could eat off the floor and so well stocked! The owners pretty much provide anything you could ever need except for food and drinks of course. The location is great and well worth the extra money for space and amenities, rather than staying in a hotel. The only thing to be aware of is that they only provide two towels, so if you're planning to stay longer than a couple nights, you may want to request extra before you get there.

Cute house, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
Plum cottage was absolutely adorable. The pictures don't do it justice! We loved all the little homey touches, the cottage had everything we could possibly have needed. Perfect size for a couples weekend away, but close to everything at the same time! Right off of South Lamar, the location was near numerous restaurants and outdoor activities. Owners left lots of info and recommendations on things to do nearby and around town. They even gave us tips on dog friendly places and our dog loved it too! The backyard is big and fully fenced with a nice deck and a table and chairs. Everything about our stay was great! We will be back!

Fantastic stay at Plum Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We booked the cottage online and were not disappointed at all. The photos do not do it justice. Immaculate with everything you need. Great having a washer/drier and the bed was so comfy. Loved relaxing on the leather sofa in the lounge. Coming from England we wanted to experience US life and we certainly did that. The neighbourhood was great, no problems going for a stroll. We became regulars at Gourdoughs, food is amazing. Carol and Kerry kept in touch to make sure we were enjoying our stay. If we come back to Austin we will definitely rent this property again. Would also recommend it to friends who travel. Happy memories. Thank you Carol & Kerry x

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Plum Cottage. It was just big enough for both of us and out two dogs. We enjoyed the walking around in the neighborhood and the close proximity to all the sites in Austin.

Up the road just a short jaunt you can mosey in to the world famous Broken Spoke honky tonk for some real live Texas swing music and dance the night away on their sawdust sprinkled dance floor. Bring your boots and cowboy hat! Amy's Ice Cream, Phil's Ice House, Kerbey Lane Cafe and much much more are all less than 1/2 mile away from your home away from home.
