Overview

Austin Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 780 sq. ft., 2 Bedrooms, Office, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

This charming light-filled Hyde Park bungalow was built in 1915 and is rich in history. Remodeled in 2013 to maintain historic characteristics, it’s comprised of a large living room, full kitchen, a second bedroom with office space, and full bathroom with original antique claw foot tub/shower. Since the 1930's this house has been split into different residences. Enjoy this 780 square foot home that sleeps 3 adults. Other features include beautiful floors, 10-foot ceilings, a large fully fenced back yard, and fun vintage fixtures. It's within easy walking distance of multiple city and UT bus stops, Hyde Park restaurants, a bakery/coffee shop, Fresh Plus neighborhood grocery store, tennis courts, a park, and many other local Austin businesses. It's a great place to walk, ride bikes, or simply enjoy the quiet and relaxing atmosphere while being close to downtown.

We are family friendly and can accommodate children 5 years old or older. Total of 3 people includes any children. The layout is a shotgun layout. The living room leads into the main bedroom, then into the kitchen, then into the back room/office that has the bathroom attached to it.

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.

Nice, and huge for the price

  • 5 of 5

I was visiting Austen for a conference, and being able to come home to a quiet, clean, spacious apartment was great. The fast wifi was excellent to have since I had to work, and it was a very easy walk to the bus stop and to some nice cafes, as well as a pleasant half-hour stroll to the university.

A Great Property, Comfortable , Convenient

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable stay, our first ever in Austin, we found it easy to get around by car or bus, only a few minutes into the centre of town by either.The neighborhood was really interesting , great for walks. The property was well supplied with all utensils and cutlery and well described in the photos.

Quaint, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just finished a 6-nights stay at Pete's Hyde Park Bungalow. Absolutely love the neighborhood and the centralized location. Easy access to I-35, Mopac, downtown, etc. The bungalow is very comfortable and minus one isolated incident of noisy next door neighbor partying late on a Friday night, we had a wonderful stay and could not ask for more for the price paid. Pete was very responsive to all emails and questions, even before we made the decision to book this stay. The refundable deposit was promptly issued after our departure. Would definitely recommend if you appreciate the beauty of a small residential neighborhood.

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolute gem of a place! We have stayed at many house rentals over the years and sometimes never sure what to expect. This place did not disappoint! Bright colors, stylish décor and extremely comfortable gives this house an A+ for us. Many thanks to Pete for accommodating a slightly earlier check in date due to an early arrival.

Beautiful and clean vintage unit!

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about it from the close proximity to shopping/restaurants to the quaint beadboard ceiling in the bedroom and tall ceilings. Pete was a most excellent host who addressed needs quickly and with expertise. So much better than a hotel, it's like a home away from home!
