Why Carole and Kerry Price chose Austin

We purchased this property because it is in a great Austin neighborhood and in the heart of town. Originally purchased as a leased rental property we decided to convert the property to a Vacation Rental property in 2010.

What makes this house unique

Our property puts you in easy reach of everything good about South Austin. Go for a run on Lake Lady Bird, have a great cup of coffee at a myriad of places, visit a uniquely Austin trailer park eatery, shop eclectic South Congress Ave and dance the night away at many local music venues.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time! The car we rented didn't get much use! We ate at Easy Tiger a couple of times and ate at a mex. restaurant on S.Congress. The food there is fabulous! Shopped at Whole Foods, did an HEB run, also ate at P.Terry's and had a Veggie Berger which was great! Walked at Ladybird Lake twice. Learned the bus for our stay so with all the walking and bus rides ( we actually did walk into town all the way too), I only spent less than $15.00 on gas! I think a week is not enough. Next time,next year, I really hope, 10 days would be ideal. Gotta play that one by ear. the OK I I have no desire to go elsewhere, your place is perfect. I can't imagine staying in a hotel. Your neighbors were very nice. The one next door waved at me and said "hi" and the one at the purple house let my mom clip a letter from his mailbox to mail out! What a town, Austin is so welcoming and charming. We met a man while walking on the trail and said that Austin was like a big city run like a small town. What a breath of freash air. Perfect "Snow Bird" destination for sure.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Heart of South Austin! The house was in a great location. There were many food trucks and restaurants close by.

It was perfect for a weekend getaway for my parents and my husband and our pups. Carole kept in touch with us and made sure everything was going smoothly. We would definitely stay here again when we come back to Austin.

Wonderful Weekend Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend stay at Hill House - the house was extremely cute, well maintained, well stocked, very clean and perfect for our girls' weekend needs! We were close to a variety of restaurants, we walked to S. Congress for lunch which was a lovely walk even on a very hot summer day. The neighborhood was very quiet and seemed safe at all hours. The porch and back patio were great for having coffee or a drink outside and the dog we had with us absolutely loved the extra space in the yard to play!

Carole left a long list of local activity and restaurant recommendations that would meet a variety of tastes and preferences and she also checked in with us via email during the weekend to make sure we had everything we needed.

We would definitely stay here again and are actually trying to plan a trip to return sooner than later!

Beyond Impressed - Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Carole was fabulous to work with and the house exceeded all my expectations. A portable crib, high chair, and stroller were all provided, and the house was stocked with books and toys that my toddler loved. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. I just can't recommend this house enough. You can tell that they care about their guests, and I will definitely stay again next time we are in Austin.

Very clean, quaint and cozy!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Its located in an area that is walk away from an adventure. We walked to soco for some GREAT food and unique shopping. Another evening we walked over to see the bats evening flight and lady bird lake. This property was cozy and located in a really cool part of Austin. We would stay here again.
