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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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!
