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.

Great Stay in austin

  • 5 of 5
My daughter, uncle and I stayed at this vacation rental in Hyde Park. We loved it! The place was immaculate and the owner is very accommodating. We felt right at home. My daughter was checking out UT austin, and she fell in love with the school and the neighborhood. The home is located within walking distance of several restaurants, a coffee shop and a neighborhood grocery store. We were in the heart of austin, yet it was so quiet that we could hear the birds chirping in the morning! The neighbors are very friendly and Pete lives right down the street so he is always available if needed. We didn't have any problems, though! Everything was perfect.

Cozy place, great location

This is a very cute and cozy apartment in a quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed walking to Duvall St. restaurants. It had everything we needed, including plenty of street parking. Owner was very helpful and attentive to my inquiries. We would stay here again.

Adorable, clean, convenient rental!

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed in this adorable rental while we got her settled into her new apartment. It was clean, well-outfitted, and super convenient. There are so many shops and restaurants located nearby that we were able to easily get all of our errands done and dine in style while doing it. Pete gives lots of great information and clear directions. We would definitely rent from him again.

Wonderful Stay - Terrific Host

  • 5 of 5
Our third stay with Pete Gilcrease - our second at The Treehouse - fit my wife and I perfectly . . . as did our previous stays. It surpassed its description. The Treehouse is light, airy, tastefully decorated, well-equipped, neat and clean. The small screened-in porch off the front bedroom, which we called "The Veranda," was a favorite early morning spot for coffee. The feeling from inside the unit, as well as on "The Veranda," is "up among the trees!" Pete was always attentive and available when we needed a hand or had a question, such as "how does this remote work for the cable tv?" We enjoyed the proximity to our son and his family in Hyde Park, as well as Central Market, Natural Grocers, Hyde Park Market, Mother's Cafe, and the Hyde Park Grill. Quack's is great of coffee, soft drinks, and tasty pastries - especially delicious after a few hours at Shipe Park. We have recommended Pete's units to friends, all of whom have enjoyed their stays a lot. We give The Treehouse our highest recommendation!

Best little carriage house in Texas

  • 5 of 5
Was in town for an extended business trip so I checked out HomeAway to find something more like home away from home. This historic place in Hyde Park was a great find. Owner Pete was prompt and flexible, working around my uncertain departure dates and even giving me a credit when my stay was extended to qualify for his ""weekly rate.""

The place itself is charming, clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay here or at any other of Pete's properties on my next trip.

Fabulous stay in central Austin!

  • 5 of 5
My sisters and I rented this adorable guest house for the weekend, and couldn't have been happier. It is in a very cool/pretty/historic part of Austin, Hyde Park, and minutes from everything (10 minutes to downtown, UT campus, shopping, food, etc.).

The house itself is very clean and comfortable- they've done a great job restoring it while keeping the charm of an older home. There's even a claw foot bathtub. Both bedrooms are very spacious, and the beds are comfortable. We also used the pull-out couch which was very comfortable as well. The kitchen is well equipped with a full size fridge, stove, plates, cups etc. It's not huge, but big enough for breakfast and besides, you're in Austin- go out and try the amazing food! As an added bonus, there is one parking space included (rare in Austin), and plenty of street parking, which made things very easy.

I have absolutely no complaints about the property or working with the owner. He was very helpful and informative, and made our stay very easy.

I highly recommend staying here!!
