Awesome place! Awesome location!
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!
Thanks so much for your kind words.We loved having you and the pup, please visit us next winter!
We recently stayed in Austin and rented this home for 2 couples. It's in such a convenient location and in a beautiful neighborhood! We were maybe a block from food trucks and within 5 minutes of all the locations we wanted to check out. We used Uber and it was around $5 everywhere we wanted to go. Easily walkable if you have comfortable shoes. Home was stocked with plenty of dishes and silverware, hair dryer, shampoo, coffee, toilet paper... all the little things that make renting a vrbo home easy. Owner was very prompt and getting in and out was a breeze. Our only downfall was the size of the beds. Not great for four adults, but we made it work! There's also no fan in the bathroom, so love the ones you are with!
The house was just perfect for our stay in Austin and in a great location! The kitchen was very well equipped and the house was immaculate. The backyard was a great space for us to hang out at night with the dog after a busy day in the city.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!
You really cannot get a better location in Austin! We had a blast, the hosts were great and easy to get a hold of and we really enjoyed the house!
Wonderful Holiday Home
Kate and I have been taking long stays in Austin in February for several years now. We usually stay in the South Congress area (Bouldin or Travis Heights). The "Hill House" is by far the best place we've ever found and we look forward to visiting again next year.
This two bedroom/one bath cottage has enough space for us and room for guests to visit during our stay. It's well appointed with all the conveniences one might ever want. The back yard is great for our pet cat to explore and the large vacant lot behind the house (which belongs to Carol and Kerry) provides even more space for her to explore. The steep driveway is an adventure too, but difficult to walk.
Carol and Kerry are kind and attentive land lords who were there to help/cat sit when we were called away for a family emergency. And the location -- all of Bouldin is great (a mix of worker cottages like this house and California modernism in-fill) but here you're just a short walk to the El Mercado (yes we did see Bill Kirchen at Mystery Mondays), food trucks and fine dining (e.g. Sway) on S 1st, a short bike ride to Guero's and the Continental Club on South Congress, or to ABGB on Oltorf for some Sunday afternoon dancing, or to the Saxon Pub on South Lamar, or to Lady Bird Lake where you can explore the trails (find the "Beltway" and learn about Texas music) and seek out the "Sacred Waters of Barton Springs" in Zilker Park.
We would not hesitate to recommend Carol & Kerry, this property or others they offer "Under the Texan Sun" to those looking for an Austin adventure.
Ps. we like to visit in the weeks before SXSW. The city and the rents go crazy during the festival. Austin can be cool in February, but there's no snow to shovel!
Cozy bungalow in the heart of everything!
Walkable & friendly neighborhood with the best hosts. The house is well appointed with plenty of seating on the cozy couch and outdoor areas. We had two adults, a one-year old and our little terrier in the Hill House and felt it was a perfect little getaway for our family. There was a cold snap during our stay - Carole and Kerry were always quick to message with updates on the weather. The house is nicely outfitted for kiddos with a few toys and the cold nights turned into family Yahtzee as board games and video entertainment are quickly accessible if you're not up for walking to the many eateries surrounding the area. If you don't book the Hill House, that will just leave more nights for us to stay there :).
Walk to ACL, Butler Water Park, Barton Springs Pool 1.5 miles away.
