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.

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.

SUPER NICE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in Plum Cottage and it was beautiful. The layout was nice, the furniture very comfortable, the kitchen very well appointed (look around before you go shopping, most of what you need is probably stocked) and the whole place feels like a home.

Carole was great to work with and checked in on me often to make sure I had everything I needed.

Super place to be.

WONDERFUL WEEK IN AUSTIN

My wife and I spent a week in Austin visiting our daughter. Plum Cottage was ideal for us. Its size, amenities, and location helped make our visit comfortable and relaxing. Carole was a most gracious host. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit. Thank you!

Plum Cottage is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just a short walk or drive away to South Austin's vibrant newest restaurants, bars and shops. Famous Maria's Taco Express is just a block away for Live Sunday Gospel music and killer breakfast tacos or just down the street you can wander in to Gourdough's Public House Pub with their unique savory doughnut sandwiches. 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.

Other attractions: Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Hike and Bike Trail, South Congress Shopping district and Downtown Austin are all within a 5-10 minute drive away.
