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 House in 2010
Why Pete Gilcrease chose Hyde Park
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.

Great Stay in austin
My daughter, uncle and I stayed at this vacation rental in Hyde Park. We loved it! The place was immaculate and the owner is very accommodating. We felt right at home. My daughter was checking out UT austin, and she fell in love with the school and the neighborhood. The home is located within walking distance of several restaurants, a coffee shop and a neighborhood grocery store. We were in the heart of austin, yet it was so quiet that we could hear the birds chirping in the morning! The neighbors are very friendly and Pete lives right down the street so he is always available if needed. We didn't have any problems, though! Everything was perfect.
Very pretty apartment and well furnished!
I liked the space. I would only offer a couple of suggestions: add some curtains in the bedroom as it's extremely bright very early in the morning. And with the color combo, it made the space hard to sleep in (until we bought eye masks). Additionally, the bedrooms could use a mirror. When you have 3 ladies in the apartment, one mirror is not enough. Other than that, it was a nice and very comfortable place to stay during our visit. Thank YOU!
Beautiful Hyde Park Cottage
My family stayed here for about 2 weeks. Excellent, safe, clean and charming. Very comfortable bedding. Great Austin location.
We rented Pete's home for some out of town guests, and it was a great place for them to stay. The home was clean, Pete was really helpful and communicative, and it's in a fabulous location. Thank you!
great location, quiet neighborhood
This is a really cute older home - character+. The kitchen is great for simple meals. The beds are very comfortable.
The one thing we had trouble with was a lack of mirrors which made the bathroom sharing an issue for a family group attending a special occasion and needing to be photo ready. A full length mirror would be nice, as well as just a place to comb to your hair in each bedroom.
Otherwise this home is well equipped and comfortable.
The owner is very attentive with answering questions and at check-in.
Quiet and felt safe
Very quiet which is most important to us when traveling. Cute and comfortable! Location was great. Not a far drive to lots of things to do in Austin.
We could have used a mirror other than the one in the bathroom and/or a fan in the bathroom. Also the light above the front door did not work.
We would return. Thank you!
