Carole and Kerry Price purchased this house in 2000
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.
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.
Great property, great communication with Carole. House is super clean, kitchen had a great layout and was well supplied. Carole has provided a lot of information on Austin - we know the city but great info those who don't. Loved the washer/dryer combo - made my life easy! Backyard was just great for my dog - two spaces, one small for quick outside trips, one large to run off the energy! If you know Austin, you know this is an unbeatable location. Easy walk to 1st street and the food trucks. Very short drive to SOCO and Zilker area. The weather was super hot (100 degrees) but the house has abundant ceiling fans and cold a/c! Thanks Carole - I will rent again.
Hill House is a great place! The home was just the right size and clean. I loved having the fenced in yard for my little dog. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The location is perfect. I was able to walk to the food trucks on 1st and it is only a 10 minute walk to Congress, plus I felt very safe. I also walked to Zilker Park, although about 30 minutes it was pleasant and easy. There is great music at El Mercado, 2 blocks away as well as the Continental Club on South Congress. I even rode the bus to downtown. It costs $2.50 for a 24 pass and you can catch the #10 on 1st. The driveway is steep!! But if you go slow it is no problem. Carole and Kerry were awesome, quickly responded to questions and close by if you need help with anything. I hope to be back!! I totally recommend Hill House. Thanks Carole and Kerry!
Information provided by the owner was great. Walking distance to southern congress, food trucks and parks. Wonderful place for girls weekend!
This is a very clean, cozy house on a quiet street in south Austin, a bit more than a mile from downtown. It's in an older neighborhood of small houses shaded by trees. You can walk in 5 minutes or less to First Street where there are stores and some dining options (including Torchy's Tacos). It's also a nice neighborhood to walk around in and has oodles of character. The house is nicely upgraded but still retains hardwood floors throughout. We had great communication with Carol before and during our stay and no problems whatsoever. Would definitely stay here again on a return trip!
Carole and Kerry were so friendly and we were happy to have met them. Their place was perfectly accommodating. The kitchen had all the essentials, so we happily cooked many of our meals during our long weekend. The bedrooms and living room couch were comfortable and we had plenty of space one evening for a night-in, amidst our other nights going out.
We loved the area for all the wackiness nearby: Murals, fun little shops and food trucks. We were also a long walk or short Fasten (like Uber or Lyft) away from many places, so nothing was really out of reach. From this place, we were able to explore Zilker Park, downtown, and Rainey street, among others.
The Wifi and TV worked well with instructions on how to use. I was so impressed by how well-stocked the bathroom was. [Good] Shampoo and Conditioner already in there, extra toothbrushes for those that forgot theirs, and even static guard! Bags supplied for grocery shopping (which we used).
I just wish we could have had more time to take advantage of their cozy backyard... Next time! All in all, the place was CLEAN, updated and very comfortable. Houses like these exceed the standard and what I hope for each time I use VRBO.
The ONLY issue we ran into that weekend was that we ran out of toilet paper on the last day. Had it been earlier in the trip, I am sure Carole or Kerry would have helped us out. First world problems!
We really enjoyed our stay at Hill House. Very well and thoughtfully furnished with all the comforts of home down to fresh coffee beans! Really enjoyed the view from the front deck on the hill, the slower pace of south Austin, being close to many fun eateries, and especially breakfast tacos from Torchy's.
Walk to ACL, Butler Water Park, Barton Springs Pool 1.5 miles away.
