About the property

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.

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 bungalow 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.

Clean and Comfortable

The rental unit was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Great location within walking distance of stores, restaurants, bakery and UT campus. Communication with Pete was quick and easy.

Totally sweet little getaway for the price, not too too far from downtown.

  • 5 of 5

The inside of the house is extremely well kept. The outside is definitely plain, but that was perfectly ok with me! Everything was impeccably clean and, as a bonus, there are lots of great instructions and recommendations (everything from where to find the silverware and what to expect in the silverware cabinet, to restaurant and coffee shop recs) in the welcome binder. Pete was super communicative and helpful, and went out of his way to let me know he was there if I had any questions during my stay. Great first experience in Austin.

Beautiful hideaway in quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Loved the place. Very clean and spacious, and in a very quiet and safe part of town. My only complaint was we had a hard time keep the water temperature constant while taking a shower. The temp would fluctuate between hot and cold on its own. Otherwise a lovely place!

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.
